About AltheaKerr
Joined June 2017
I taught myself internet marketing in the 80s when everything had to be done manually and more often than not, 10 different tasks had to be done simultaneously to achieve the result. I worked at it for 16 hours a day for a good 5 years or more and never really made a significant amount of money. But I did get the experience which is never lost.

I gave it up and concentrated on my writing. I have a number of short stories and even a novel under my belt all in the Thriller genre. I always knew money could be made on the internet - finding out where and how was the trick. I got into copywriting which is quite lucrative and laterly doing transcriptions for a few companies which has really made my bank manager happy.

When I came across this site Wealthy Affiliate - quite by chance - and looked into it, I felt the old excitement start up particularly when I saw the extent of the online community attached to the site. This told me more than anything that it is legit. And to have all those old manual tasks done for me is a real treat. So combining my two loves - IM and writing and actually having a chance to earn a monthly income is a dream that I'll be grabbing with both hands.

Hi Althea, I think being a writer is an advantage for you. I have spent the best part of last month learning more about how to write for IM and there is a lot to be considered.And put into practice. So, I wish you success in your journey here at WA.

Hi Althea, Thank you fro the follow and I will be following you back. Back in the 80's computers and the internet was definitely difficult to learn. And I remember how one program would not work with another program until windows showed up. I know you will love WA and I wish you the best of luck on your new adventure. Best Wishes.

Wow, Althea, you could leverage that experience into an entire business! Copywriting is as much an art as a skill from my perspective, and if you are good at it, you can make a killing online!

What kind of rates do you charge for articles or copy, or have you thought that through for an online niche? If not, and you have an interest still, I am sure that it has legs!

If you were a satire cartoonist, or maybe involved with hard copy newspapers it might be a different story, but what you know is alive and well....

Good to meet you and I would love to have a look at some of your stories, I am sure they would be some good reading!

Cheers!

Hi Dave,

I have written hundreds of articles as a ghostwriter so I can't use any of them but have tons of experience researching, writing everything from press releases to restaurant reviews, travel, website content for clients and so on.

I didn't think this could actually be used on a website as a market? I usually charge $25 for 500 words including research that has to be done. But it is always negotiable. Do you think I could set up a website with my sample writing and sell the service?

I have also written fiction as a ghostwriter. I did a series (12) of short stories (10,000 words each) and was paid tuppence ha'penny for them. But they were good - some have been published.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

Many thanks,

Althea

I think this is a skill that few possess and many would like to have. If you market it in the write (misspelling intended hehe) way, you could turn that into some really good gigs and money.

As either a full-on niche or perhaps an ancillary focus to affiliate marketing (there is overlap) it could be a good move to make. Does the idea of doing more writing excite you, could you see yourself doing it 5 years from now?

Or perhaps it can be a stepping stone to some other end objective that you hold near and dear to your heart. That is often the case for me...

Best of luck, let me know what direction(s) you are going in!

Cheers!

Hi Althea,

Just read your bio. Like you, I wish to combine IM with writing. I have three non-fiction books planned. My problem is a lack of time (plus a lack of planning probably). So I've decided upon a 'push month' as it was called when I was a sales person. Well actually it's a 'push six weeks'. It started yesterday. A little later I'll be posting my goals in the hope that once they are out there it'll make me accountable thus more likley to follow through .

Good luck!

Hi Sam,
I wish you well with your goals. It took me about 3 years from conception to completion to write my novel. I only had the nights to write so I learned to survive on 4 hours sleep a night. I am very fortunate to have a friend and fellow writer to bounce ideas off of and then to help with the editing and of course to keep me going. Doing this job alone is very hard so I really do wish you every success.
Anytime you need a word of encouragement, I am right here!

Althea

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
