Home Based Opportunities for Writers to Consider

Anyone who has ever been laid off, dismissed or had to accepted an early retirement, knows that there is no such thing as job security, the only thing that is secure is that the cost of living will continue to rise.  The lack of jobs and/or the possibility of losing a job have caused quite a number of people to seek an additional income.  And if you’re fortunate enough to be able to put scribe to paper, then…

The opportunities can be plentiful when you have writing skills. If you are a skilled writer and are looking to ditch the commute and cash in on your talent, or you need to supplement your income, you may want to consider a few of the home based business opportunities that are readily available.

As an online writer, you can publish your own electronic magazine or ezine. The Internet essentially levels the playing field for writers as you don’t have to wait for a publisher to discover you. If you have the desire to publish an ezine, you can get started with very little upfront money.    By using various self-promotion techniques, writing your own ezine can become a very good home based business opportunity.  Alternatively, you could publish your own weblog or blog, pick your own platform or just write to get your name out there. The possibilities are limitless.

Another home based business opportunity for writers is blogging or writing for hire. Many businesses and individuals want to maintain blogs for different reasons but don’t have the time or the experience to do so. They will often pay a professional writer to maintain this aspect of their business. They may also require other types of writing for their web sites or offline needs. To learn more about these types of opportunities you should check the various writing magazines both on and off the Internet.

And, of course, one of the best home based business opportunities for any writer is freelancing. You may choose to sign up at a site like Elance.com where you can bid on different writing jobs from all over the world.  So many different possible projects exist for a freelancer. You could write sales copy for businesses, write book reviews or even ghostwrite books. The list goes on and on.

Many of the best home based business opportunities for writers are available either on the Internet or through the Internet. You just need to get out there and find the best one for you.

This post is still under-development, the meat and potatoes of this topic is still resonating in my head. Once it’s fully developed I will of course serve it up and share it with readers, I suspect since it is a blog post, it is my choice to do so. BTW, this wasn’t as easy as it may appear.

Making Money with Articles: Freelance Writers

 

If you cannot or do not wish to write your articles yourself, you can search different outsourcing companies to find a freelance writer to help you grow your business and your website. These freelancers will ghost write articles for you which means that you will own all copyrights to the material that is produced to do with what you want. Freelance writers have a talent for writing, however, they would rather make quick money off of writing for others, rather than taking the time to build a niche website that will need to be heavily marketed and promoted to begin earning revenue. They are usually not marketers, but rather people who have a gift for the written word. On the other hand, those who are looking to make money from articles are marketers. They are looking to build websites that will give them long term revenue, rather than one quick payment and that is it. This Internet pool or freelance writers will open up a good opportunity for you to receive the quality, original content that you are looking for to build your niche site.
