If you have a flair for writing there are plenty of ways to make a decent residual income by putting your talent to good use. The internet has opened up a world of communication in which almost everyone has something to say and many have their own platform through which to say it. Of course, not everybody is able to put their thoughts into words and so here is where you can step in to help.
Writing content for other people’s websites and blogs has become a huge industry. If you have your own site or Facebook page and are able to use them to generate business then all is well and good, but if you don’t then a good place to advertise your services is through a dedicated third party such as Freelancer or Upwork. Here you can bid for the right to perform literary tasks for site owners who are in need of that expert touch.
Sell Your Skills as a Writer
Another way to sell your skills as a writer would be to publish your own book. Time was when persuading a publisher to take on your work was akin to winning the lottery in terms of the likelihood of it ever happening, but nowadays the technology is available for anybody to market themselves as an author. Print On Demand (POD) means selling just one copy makes it viable to proceed with, and companies like Amazon will also provide a platform through which you will be able to market it.
If on the other hand you don’t much like the idea of putting your name to your masterpiece then why not try your hand at ghostwriting? There are just so many people who would love to write a book but who lack the confidence or the skills to do ir. Why not offer them your assistance? Writing a whole book for a third party is likely to generate a significant income as well as creating a good cause and a great deal of satisfaction for both yourself and your client.
