How to Write for Money

I have a lot to say about how to write for money, because that's mostly what I do. I'm doing it right now, in fact, and this section probably has more pages written by me than any of the others. I've been paid to write for a blog, I've self-published books, I sell my own e-books, I write articles to promote our websites, I write most of the pages for our 25 sites, I have had a non-fiction book published the traditional way, and I have created content for pay for others.

Our list of pages is farther down, but first, here's a video I recently did on how to make money with Kindle books:

The business of writing is changing fast, and the internet in particular has made it easier than ever to write for money. Look through the pages here and you should find some way you can write and get paid for it by next week.

Writing for Money: Tips

The world has changed a lot with the advent of the internet, and this is especially true in the field of writing. Previously you were limited in the number of ways you could profit from your writing because of the cost in time and money. Now you can self-publish at zero cost on platforms like Amazon's Kindle or Barnes and Noble's Nook. You can create e-books and set up an account to sell them for $50 on Clickbank. Free blogs where you publish stories or articles can be monetized. The barriers for new writers who want to make money with their work are fewer and lower than ever.
