How Much Money Will You Earn From Your Writing
Total Articles: 40
I often get asked the question "How much money can I earn from my writing?"
That question is as irritating as kids in the back seat of the car asking "Are we there yet?"
I'd answer both questions like this:
"I don't know how much money you're going to earn from your writing because I don't know what you're going to write or what you're going to do with it."
"If we were there already we wouldn't still be driving."
Both answers are as obvious as each other, yet they asked so often.
Sometimes I'd like to say to someone "Really? You want to write and publish ebooks? Then you're guaranteed to earn a big fat $10,000 a month, guaranteed."
Wouldn't that be great to know that if you sat and wrote ebooks every day you'd rake in such a high amount of money every month?
But writing income isn't like that. You can never be sure how much money you're going to make even if you've been working as a writer for years, because it's not a 9 to 5 job with a guaranteed, hourly income.
So even though I can't tell you how much money you're going to earn from your writing, I can tell you ways you can improve your income and maybe make it as high as $10,000 a month.
This is the first thing you need to do no matter what you are going to write about. If you're going to write for the internet then you need to do keyword research to find out what kind of information people are looking for online.
If you're going to do freelance writing then the research you do will depend on what topic you are going to be writing about. Research is a big part of a writers work.
If you want people to find you online then you need to keep marketing. Whether you use blog posting, social media or article marketing to get your work known, you must keep marketing all the time (every day) and always look for more places to market.
You can't make sales unless you ship your writing. And again it doesn't matter if you're freelance writing for clients or magazines or other websites or you're writing for your own website or writing ebooks. If you don't ship your work and get it out there, you won't earn money. And the more you ship the more you can make.
You can't ship if you don't write. You need to create a consistent writing habit which means you need to write every day. Making money from writing is often a numbers game which means the more writing you do the more money you can earn. No matter what you write, find a place to publish it.
And don't stop with any of these 4 things. Keep researching, writing, shipping and marketing. Together, these are the backbone to a successful career as a writer.
And be consistent. Don't work like crazy for a few days or weeks and then stop. If you stop, so will your money.
Look at it this way, if you write and publish 3 ebooks and start making a decent income from them, don't stop there. 3 ebooks may be nice but what if you had 20? How much would this increase your writing income?
And it's important to write as many ebooks as you can, if this is the way you want to earn money.
John Locke started with 5 ebooks and sold 1 million copies. He's now published around 15 ebooks. Can you imagine how much money he's making from these? But he didn't stop at 5. Kept on writing and shipping.
Amanda Hocking is another extremely successful ebook writer and publisher. She had written 17 unpublished novels before she took the plunge and self published them as ebooks. She became a millionaire but she didn't stop there and is still writing novels.
Joe Konrath also writes and publishes his own ebooks and earns over $100,000 a year from his work. His writing income has increased significantly every year for the past few years. And he too is still writing and still publishing. When he's not publishing ebooks he's publishing posts on his mega-successful blog.
And while I may not be in the same income league as some of these writers, I still earn a full-time income from my writing which increases every year. And from my own personal experience and by doing small experiments over the years, I know without a doubt that the more I write and the more I ship the more money I make.
So no matter what kind of writing you do, do more of it.
