Boost Your Writing Income

Copyright: Cheryl Wright – All rights reserved


Many writers email to ask if I think they should write fiction or non-fiction. My answer will always be both.

When I was starting out, I was only interested in fiction. What I later discovered is that I’m good at writing both, and enjoy both, so why not utilize each form of writing? From my own experience if you are able to work in more than one area, you’ll sell more of your work, more often.

A couple of years ago I decided to do more report writing and copywriting etc., and have boosted my income considerably by doing so.

The bottom line is, we’re writers, and like other professionals, we can easily multi-skill. If you want more income from your writing, learn as much as you can about different areas of the craft.

I know loads of writers who are multi-skilling, but they don’t have their services listed on their websites. When I’ve asked them why, they’ve told me they simply didn’t think of listing their services. Why not? How can editors, publishers and/or clients find your services if they don’t know they exist?

If you’re not sure what services you can provide, brainstorm. Write a list of all the writing-related things you can do. For instance:

  • Report writing

  • Advertising copy

  • Letter writing

  • Brochure copy

  • Business card design

  • Letter head design

  • Ghost Writing

  • Complaint letters

  • Proof reading

  • Copy editing

  • Magazine Articles

  • Newsletters

There is so much scope for your writing services, and so much money to be made.

To see how you can easily tailor your services to suit your expertise and/or qualifications, go to http://www.write-esssentials.com and check out some of the services I'm offering.

If you want to sell a particular service but don’t have the knowledge or expertise, educate yourself and monetise your writing business.

What are you waiting for? Get writing!
