Getting Paid To Write Online

It doesn’t bother me a bit that most people would explain writing a book as a ‘tooth pulling’ experience, just because it was. Writing a book and publishing it was as exhausting as it gets, for a fact that you had to complete one long process after another; by the time your book is ready to be published, months would have gone by. But that is a story of the yesterday…Thanks to #PoweredByIndie.

There aren’t too many people in this universe to-day with that kind of time at their hands; time is money, and therefore must be treated as such. If it has to take you months – 6-12 months – just to publish one book, then you are one of those left in the dust of yesterday.

The world of to-day moves like a current too fluid to wait for months or even a year for your book to be published, when other writers like you would have published one book after another. Indie publishers, at least most, do have the capability to publish one book every week or more, dependent upon their desired goal.

I can almost certainly say…most writers…write to make money, and if you are one of those still left in the dust of yesterday – writing one book in one year – chances are…it will be almost impossible for you to catch up with demand and supply.

And that is where self-publishing comes in handy; all you need is to write a compelling yet effective copy quickly to compete on leveled grounds. Writing doesn’t have to take months and sometimes years; there are other things to do as well besides writing. And every writer is different from the other, and with different stories to tell, as well as different segments to carter to.

It took me 8 months to complete my first book ( the Numbers Game), revise it more than once and get it published. Whereas my second book (12 Hour Work Days-Helicopter Parents) took me three weeks, at most to complete and publish it…That afforded me a window of opportunity to throw-in numerous e-books.

Writing – like any other business – is all about timing – you spend less time on crafting your ideas and more time on advertising. To make money writing, one must develop skills – writing and publishing quickly. The more you publish, the more likely you will be to succeed as a writer.



Your first step towards getting paid to write online will probably begin with lower earnings while you perfect the craft and looks for that potential job fit. If you have been writing for a while, you can readily agree that making a living with writing depends on the writer having skills necessary to provide the work needed by the client at any given time.

As you begin to explore your options, you will begin to realize that the flexible writer has an advantage over others. You must take your writing job very seriously, just like you would any other job if you are to see yourself succeed as a writer. It is important to know that writing can be hard or as easy as you would want it to be, for only you know what you wish to accomplish.

Writing online offers you the level of freedom that no other job can. Apart from freedom of hours, working when you want, online writing jobs provide freedom regarding topic on which to write. The only challenge you will have as a beginner, is the ability to produce perfect, finished product. When that is out the way, high paying clients will find you with ease – you don’t have to go digging in the mud for better paying clients if your work is of high quality.

Years ago when I started writing, I was paid $3.00 for a 300 word article, and that was okay with me. “Why did you get paid very little”? You may ask. Well, I was still working on building my portfolio. Once I established my worth, I had the ability to receive as much work as I could reasonably complete without compromising the required quality guidelines. You must write to perfection in order to find clients willing to pay for your craft.
