How to Make Money as a Writer (Infographic)

How to Make Money as a Writer in 2018

People wonder if freelancing is a lucrative career or if they can make money from writing.

I know many freelancers who support themselves simply by writing, so the answer is YES!

YOU CAN EARN A LIVING FROM WRITING!

There are the tons of people who contributed to my “Freelancer in the Spotlight” series. They ALL make a living from freelance writing!

And I’m sure you’ve heard the stories about all the bloggers who make a million dollars a minute or the copywriters who are able to write from their second home in Mexico? You see their friendly faces in advertisements that pop up in your Facebook feed, promising to give you instant riches if you just sign up to a program for a gazillion dollars a month.

But you don’t need to take their programs. You can take ones that have been PROVEN to work.

Take Elna Cain, for example. She teaches others how to make a living from freelance writing. (Look at her course, How to Write Your Way to Your First 1K.)

Then there’s Gina Horkey. She teaches people how to achieve freelancing success in 30 DAYS OR LESS! She also teaches people how to make a living from being a virtual assistant… also in 30 days or less!

Can you do both? Sure, you can!

There are many opportunities to make money as a writer in 2018. You just need to know where to look!

Opportunities for Writers in 2018 and Beyond

From blogging and copywriting to editing and freelancing, there are jobs to suit all different types of writing skill and interest.

Some Fun Facts about Using Quizzes to Grow Your Business

Quizzes are the best new way to generate new subscribers for your business.

By using them, you can grow your email list, expand your reach via social media, and earn more money!

By adding an email capture form to your quiz, about half of the people who take your quiz will opt in to become email subscribers. This will result in an increase in sales for your business. The more subscribers you have, the more you will sell! (This is especially true if you utilize email marketing properly!)

On average, 10% of people who take quizzes share their results on social media, so you’ll have an increased presence on social media. This is great because others are doing your marketing for you! Thus, it will save you some money in advertising. Plus, it’s always great to reach new audiences!

By increasing your reach, you will gain new subscribers and customers, therefore growing your business.
