PAGE 1 – An Entrepreneur & Success Online

PAGE 2 – Diversify Your Avenues of Income

PAGE 3 – Where to Find Content Writing Jobs

PAGE 4 – How to Apply for a Writing Job

PAGE 5 – How Wealthy Helps You to Earn Money

In this training I will explain how to earn money by writing online and where to find these writing gigs that I do in addition to my website content. No you do not have to be an author in the literal sense because writing online, like I am doing here with you, is just another form of communication.

ARE YOU A REAL ENTREPRENEUR?

There is the official definition of what an entrepreneur is and then there is the one I read by an individual blogging on Entrepreneur Magazine. His definition sounded a lot like the approach I take when it comes to making money online.

“An entrepreneur is someone who works various different angles from the same source to produce the goal of success.” Yep! That sounds like my approach. But what does that mean?

Let me explain what that means in relation to what I do in my quest for success. As I often say, “Success is not a destination but a journey.” What I mean by that is you never really achieve that goal because the success finish line keeps changing once a previous goal has been reached.

When I started here at Wealthy Affiliate I knew that success in an online business would take years to come to fruition. So I set a short-term success goal of making my first bit of money, even if it were just $1, by my 6th month here for working every single day toward that goal. When I achieved that goal I set a new goal. These goals all lead up to that “success” goal far in the future.

NEXT UP = The various angles I take to successfully make money online

You can sell things you own on eBay or Craigslist to start. Then once you learn the techniques here at WA you can do freelance online work.

The nice thing about writing content on your website, here on WA, and even the emails and social media posts you do is, the more you do it the better your writing skills become. This should make it easier to apply that writing skill and make money by writing for someone else.

I stumbled across this and lights went on in my head, back in the day I was a technical writer for abebooks.com and wrote most of their help files and all the training manuals and staff handbooks. I doubt very much I could use that but surely it would look good on a resume as some of my content still shows up in their help files years later however it would not be credited to me as even though I was the Manager of Knowledge management there is is no way to prove I wrote it.. hmm think I need to pick your brains on this one

Wow. This was really great to get going on other avenues. I tried doing freelance writing once, but since I only got paid 7cents a word I realized I was putting in more time than I was getting paid. I'd love to find something more lucrative that was a reflection of the amount of time I invested. Thanks!
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
There are a ton of writing gigs that only pay per word so if you are looking for gigs that pay per article, you have to really look for them. Sometimes you have to settle for less in order to get more because if you do good some clients will raise their prices.
Reply

Maybe I just need to find a different company. The one that I was with, all the clients refused to pay me saying they never hired me. But because I had a contract with them, and the company promised you would get paid, the company ended up paying me. I never got rankings with clients, though, because they all refused to pay for my work.

It is always important to get the payment details hammered out before you start and if you had a contract then that is a good thing.

Thank you for sharing with the community. This is one of the best lessons that I've learned here, and it makes perfect sense. Why not use what we are learning here outside of the WA community? There are millions of other people out there needing content, SEO, and keyword research. If we put our new found skills to use I think that we will have a whole new world open up to us and we, too, can be profitable.

You are providing invaluable information; I am lost for words when it comes to your ethics, walking the talk, standing firm on what is right and what is not, and generosity with information, as well as helping to keep people on track and not give up.
I may not seem to be doing much, but trying to do it around my job which eats into my WA time, as well as enjoying a large family, but behind the scenes I am trying to slowly build something which I can then share with all of the above entities in my life, and be a benefit to them too. That's my goal, anyway, and you are giving me confidence that it can be done, in good time.

Hi Robert,
if a gig asks how much we expect to be paid for a post between 800-1000 words, with pictures, keyword research and SEO...what should I tell them?
Thanks
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Moritz, it depends on who is asking. If it is a company that has employees I normally ask for more and if it is a person I ask for less.

To do everything you listed my price range, depending on who is asking would be between 5 cents to 10 cents per word. This comes out to be either $40-$50 or $80-$100.

These are my prices but you need to come up with a better feel based on what you know that you can provide. NOTE: I prefer telling people a cost per word and not per project. This way I do not get cheated.

MoritzS Premium
Thanks. That gave me a good idea of what are "normal" prices.

Not sure you know why a call you Boomer. I'm a long time sports nut and one of my favorite sports personalities was Boomer Esiason an NFL Quarterback in the late 80s for the Bengals. I loved his quick, left handed release. When I first saw your WA name ... it was automatic.

Yes, and most of the things we learn here both from the courses but also from other members are things you can not just learn the importance of in a day.
The list of the things that I want to achieve and work is soon very long.
So what I have actually done is to save all the training and started over with Boot Camp for that is what my website is built around. I can grasp and excel to.
But unfortunately get the rest I still feel that I'm missing so much work, to put it bluntly, too much information that I do not get worked up.
But as a student here, it is part of it and I think that this connec- regardless What training you take there is always more and learn
Reply

Yes you are correct. Much of the stuff I am doing now, I had wanted to start it when I first learned it months ago, but I wasn't ready. And the things I did start and I am seeing success with now, those are the things I write the training and blogs about.

There is so much to learn and do here at WA that no one can know it all. Even Kyle admits there are training tutorials and other posts made by members as part of the OEP that he hasn't viewed yet.

I have been a power seller in the past and it certainly does improve and extent your online skill-set. Mikey
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
I never write one-liner eBay descriptions that don't offer any real value. When I became an eBay seller I remember in one of their tutorials they said that by providing a little bit of a story with your description, would help you to gain sales.

So I have been doing that since the beginning, am an eBay PowerSeller, and have 4,900+ positive feedback. Like with website content, the more you do it the better you will get at it.

Hi this is an interesting point, here's a quote I received today from nichehacks.com...'Instead of lots of sites not really doing anything why not have 1 site that's fully running and making money? More sites doesn't necessarily equal more money'. It's worthy of a debate anyway. I think you're right by the way and I guess (maybe) the point that the quote was getting at was that before diversifying you should have 1 website making you good money. What do you think?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
One website is all you need to make money online. But when I say diversify I am not talking about building more websites. I am talking about diversifying your skills by working freelance projects for "other" people's websites.

Being you have the knowledge in what it takes to build a website, use that knowledge and offer it to others who need it and are willing to pay for it. That is what I mean by diversifying your knowledge skills.

As Kyle and Carson advocate...One website is all you need. But once that website is at the point that it is bringing in money, you can either be content with just that website or start another.

I know I want to start another but I am not ready to do that just yet. I am seeing success with the one I have and I want to make it even more successful. I'm following the Jeff Bezos guideline and currently I am ahead of him.

It took him 24 months (2 years) of working everyday to make enough money for his website Amazon to make enough money just to break even. I reached the break even mark in 16 months. It took Jeff another 5 years before Amazon became 100% profitable. I'm confident I will reach that within another year.

I like the way you look at success and the way you set your goals. I too set my goals low so that I won't set myself up for failure. I haven't even figured out when I'd like to make my first dollar. I content to wait until it happens. I'm just making pages and trying to make blogs, I work most days, sometimes until midnight. I take the weekends off, sometimes, because all work and no play drive my inner children insane. And because I want to spend time with my husband and dogs. But I work pretty hard. Slow, but hard. I try to enjoy the journey, even when I want to pull my hair out, which I do from time to time. My immediate goal is to finish the bootcamp training before the end of the year, That is what I'd like to do. I don't know if I'll make it or not, but that is what I'd like to do. There. I've set my first goal.
Thanks for the impetus.
Sheila
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
I never have seen the benefit in setting so high a goal. I believe a person gains motivation through accomplishments and how can you gain accomplishments if your goals are set too high?

You just go at your own speed. Rushing things is not going to be beneficial. Think of it like the tortoise and the hare. Slow and steady is a good approach if that is all you can muster. Everyone has their comfortable speed.

All the best on your Boot Camp endeavors.

You are welcome John. Prior to joining WA and before I went Yearly Premium, the money I was making from eBay was paying for my monthly SUV payment, which was more than the yearly price of WA. Then in October 2013 I made my last loan payment for my SUV. The following month I took my eBay earnings and paid for my yearly WA membership.

eBay has been one of those great diversified avenues of income but it took time and hard work to get it there. Now through WA and the training gained here, I am branching out into other sources of income and I hope others will do the same. - Much luck to you in your writing endeavors.

Another winner Robert, and thanks so much for the info, didn't know about the affiliate link not being needed. I enjoy writing so I'll take your advice and see what happens,

Brilliant post Robert! Bet it'll helps many WAers top up their tank easily and have fun doing it.

I've been offered an interview for a writing (kind of, a bit more) job for a Fortune 100 company in Silicon Valley 3 days ago, right after putting up my profile on one of the freelance sites, and my profile is incomplete, even now.

And it looks like i have 90%+ chance to get the job!

What I'm saying is, diversifying and thinking outside the box do work. Just by putting myself out there, opportunity found me and knocked at my door!

Get out, do something, my friends. You'll be amazed what's out there.

That's awesome Angela! And that is the underlying point to this training. Take the knowledge you have gained here at WA in the creation of your website, put yourself and that knowledge out there, and make connections/get jobs.

Many blessings to you in getting that job.

Again, thanks for the terrific training.

Thanks my Aussie sounding friend (a boomer is a male kangaroo!).

You are welcome Helen. I never knew that is what a male kangaroo was called. Seems like an odd name for an animal like that.

I always have since my mum was born in Sydney. I am not sure why and so far can't find out. The big red males do leave a thumping sound on hard packed ground and they also make a deep coughing sound when arguing. But who knows. And some of these reds are very big!

I have always wanted to visit Australia to experience the animal life there. We don't have kangaroos in the wild here, only in certain zoos.

Hi Robert, this is really cool and very practical and anyone should be able to do this and make extra income online.
Freelancewriting.com also posts tons of writing opps as well, including poetry and magazine articles. Just in case anyone is interested.

Yes, Freelancewriting is my second favorite website.

However there are several links on that site that should be avoided because they offer very low wage opportunities that aren't worth spending time with.

thank you, totally agree that the income has to come from various sources and building your first website is just the foundations.
Writing doesn't come easy to me, but for someone with a great style, what a great source of additional income.
super training as always,

Writing is no more than what you are doing here. There is only one difference between communicating with someone by talking with them or writing content. When you write content you type out what you would normally speak. That is the only difference.
