9 Ways To Make Money Book Marketing As A Writer
Okay, so writing doesn’t seem to pay. Because you spend hours researching, writing, and editing.
Then you spend time trying to sell your writing to a magazine, website, or book publisher.
And finally, you spend time marketing and promoting your work.
So is there a way to make a few bucks from being a writer?
1. Seek Donations
That’s right, act like a non-profit and ask people to give you money – like a tipping jar. If you have a PayPal account you can create a PayPal Donate button and embed it into your site.
2. Marketing Book Using Digital Subscriptions
Get people to pay for content as a subscriber, the way magazines or newspapers would charge people. Simply use chargebee.com or easydigiitaldownloads.com or woocommerce.com. You can share content on a regular basis – daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly – or find a way to post content at your leisure but to charge in set amounts for increments of time.
3. Online Course
Similar to charging for an e-book, you charge for an online course that could include video, worksheets, podcasts, or written content. So here are some helpful sites. They include teachable.com, bigmarker.com, zippycourseplugin.com, zoom.us. And of course, gotomeeting.com/webinar.
4. Sell Your Work
You can write for publication with magazines or sell your work as a freelancer to a news organization. Also you can sell your book to a publisher.
5. Book Marketing By Self-Publishing
Create a book or file and sell it online via a self-publisher like Amazon’s Kindle Publishing. Also you can sell information products through gumroad.com or ejunkie.com.
Create written materials as part of your one-on-one trainings with people. That is to say you write about losing weight. Then you can consult a group or an individual and support your teachings with written documents.
7. Company History
You can offer to write a company or organization’s history-for-hire.
8. Write For Free
Use your writing to showcase your abilities, knowledge, and writing style. Then give it away with the hopes it lures paying customers for some service or bigger writing project.
9. Get Advertising
If you have a big enough online following you can charge for advertising to your blog or website. To accept advertisers, look into litbreaker.com or google.com/adsense.
You can also use your writing to boost your credentials and visibility with the hopes of using it to get hired, promoted, or as a lead-in to launching a business.
Being a good, prolific writer should net you some greenbacks. In fact, you can make money off of the writing of others. That is to say, you can join a program that gives you commissions on book sales (affiliate marketing).
