What's the Best Way to Make Money from Your Writing?

Share What You Know—and Get Paid for It!

You can make money by communicating your knowledge and experience to others.

Businesses eagerly pay experts to teach them what they need to know. Click now to discover how writers and other creative professionals can generate more income by seizing new opportunities in Critiquing, Consulting, Training, and Presenting from a top creative pro who did it himself.

We all know that you never get a second chance to make a first impression, so how can you use this truism to make money from your writing?

Before I answer that question for you, let me ask you something ...

 

How many times have you been reading a newsletter or browsing a website when you've been stopped in your tracks by a spelling mistake, a grammatical error or a typo?

Too many to recall, I imagine.

And what happens when you come across these errors? 

You'll probably be distracted from the content, and you'll lose confidence in the person who made the mistakes.

Now, sometimes these errors are the result of a lack of knowledge, but just as often, they're caused by a lack of time. Business people are busy people these days -- many simply don't have the time to read through their own writing to double check for errors. 

And that's where you come in! 

Once you've brushed up your writing skills, you can then offer your services as a freelance proofreader and/or editor to people who have websites, newsletters, sales letters, brochures ... and you'll earn good money!

What Other Types of Work Can You Do?

Here are some of the many hundreds of types of documents you can work on:

  • advertisements

  • instruction manuals

  • annual reports

  • speeches

  • press releases

  • product packaging

  • catalogues

  • non-fiction books

  • articles

  • annual reports

  • biographies

  • business proposals 

Who Will Employ You to Do This Work?

You can find work with:

  • publishers

  • website owners

  • direct marketers

  • advertising agencies

  • printers

  • graphic designers

  • lawyers

  • medical professionals

  • corporate businesses

  • real estate agencies

  • restaurants

  • web developers

  • sporting groups

  • and more

When you're a freelancer, you can choose the jobs you most enjoy. 

What Equipment Do You Need?

The very best part of this career path is that the only equipment you need is a pen and a word processor!

Well, yes, and an Internet connection because you'll be able to work for clients from every part of the world once you get established.

What Skills Do You Need?

In order to make money from your writing, you don't have to write anything yourself ... you just need to be able to proofread what others have written. 

And what could be simpler than that?

Why Should You Listen to Me?

The information and techniques in these writing tutorials are the result of more than twenty years I spent in the classroom teaching High School English.

Throughout my career, I taught senior students and successfully prepared them for university entrance. As head of the department, I was responsible for devising and implementing teaching programs and supervising staff and students in my department, so I know what works and what doesn't!

After leaving the education system, I established my website to market the tutorial series. As so often happens, my site's original purpose changed and expanded and before too long I had started to write for business people who approached me to help them write or edit their sales material, sites and corporate communications. I now have clients from around the globe, so I understand the benefits of being a freelancer!

Since 1998, I've written and produced a weekly online newsletter that has over 14,000 subscribers from every continent (except Antarctica). The newsletter receives a constant flow of testimonials from appreciative subscribers, and you can read some of them here. My site was named one of the 101 Best Websites for Writers in 2005 by Writer's Digest. 

Guarantee

I'm confident this is just what you need to help you start your new career as a freelance proofreader and editor. But if, for any reason, you're not satisfied, you can ask for a complete refund any time for a full twelve months after you purchase.
