When I first began to build my online business, no one told me I would need to do so much writing. I just wanted to work from home and make more money than I could doing anything else, so I started writing.
I had always wanted to write, but had been told by various people over the years that my writing was not very good. So, for twenty years I did not write. I edited other people’s writing. I was a teacher and also worked in real estate. There were lots of papers and reports that needed to be edited and I was the one to do it.
Almost three years ago I began to pursue my online business, and that is when I found out how much writing was involved. These are the 5 types of writing I now do daily:
- Blog posts – I have several blogs and always want to write posts that are informative and interesting to my readers
- Articles – I have now written almost seven hundred articles during the past fifteen months. The articles must teach the reader something they want to know and make a point about the topic you are writing on.
- eBooks and special reports – these are short books on a particular topic. I am now writing my fourth eBook, which will be sold online and bring passive income for years to come.
- Sales pages – this is copywriting for the internet and is the way to sell what you have created, such as eBooks, special reports, audio files, and other products.
I now look forward to writing every day. If you enjoy writing, you will love working on the internet. Keep this in mind when you begin to work online. Writing will be the key to your success.
