Web Writing Maestro - From Idea to Income

Want to make great money from your Web writing? You need a process which you can use repeatedly, so that your income increases each month. The secret is to keep everything simple: just do what YOU can do, and leave the rest to others.

The More Products You Write and Sell Online, the More Money You Make

When you begin your Web writing career, you soon realize that the real money is in selling your own products. However, this seems intimidating. How do you get a project online? How do you make money from it?

Remember that the secret is to keep it simple. No one knows everything. The Web is so huge and complex that it's impossible to master every aspect. Therefore, you out-source whatever you can't do, or find difficult or unpleasant.

For example, let's say that you want to start a new blog on marine aquariums. It's your hobby, you love it, and you know that since people are searching for information on this topic, a blog would be profitable. But you don't know how to buy a domain name and hosting, or how to install a blog. So out-source it. You should be able to get it done in a few hours for under $50.

Now let's look at your "idea to income" process. You can use this to write a constant stream of ebooks, reports, blogs, courses, classes, and seminars on any topic you choose.

1. Choose a Project

First comes the idea. I like to give myself a month from idea to income. Choosing a project which will be profitable takes longest. Once you have a possibility, check whether others are selling similar products. Try to estimate whether they're making money, and how much. (If you don't know how to do this, you know what to do now: out-source it, and get a competitive intelligence report.)

2. Get It Online

Next, create your product. Yes, you're a writer, but once you've written the outline, and the introduction, the project is solid. You can now out-source the rest of the project if you wish, or you can write it yourself. I like to write all my own projects, because I enjoy it.

Once the project's done, write a sales page and set up payment processing. (Yes, hire it done, if you don't know how.)

3. Promote It

No product sells itself. Promote it via advertising, using both paid and free methods.

4. Make Money

This final step takes care of itself. Keep promoting your product, and then get ready to create another one.

So there you have a process you can use to create products and make money: use it and prosper from your Web writing.
