More Money Method #1: Write Your Way To More Money Today

Welcome to a new series of articles, all about 10 different ways to make more money immediately.

Lots of us have resolved to make more income in 2011, and presumably also keep more of it.

In this series, I'm focusing on the “how to get more income” part of the equation.

If you run a business… sell a service… or sell products… you can use these some (or all) of these methods to bring more money your way.

So let's get started.

My first suggestion in this series – that you can get more money though writing – will not surprise you, perhaps.

But the world is moved by words; and you can induce that movement by using the right words; and that movement can include the movement of money to you.

How can you “write your own paycheck”? Simple:

  • Write sales copy to sell more of your stuff.
  • Write sales copy to sell more of other people's stuff.
  • Write just about any kind of copy for hire, and get paid to do it. Yes, there are still people out there who will pay you handsomely for good copy.

But here's the most potentially lucrative way to write your way to more money: write and sell your own information products (special reports, ebooks, home study courses, etc.).

I have a friend who is cranking out short but very useful “how to” reports (20 pages or so) on very specific topics… and selling piles of them at $19 each.

Why can't you do the same? Answer: you can.

Just about every person walking the face of this earth has specialized knowledge other people would be willing to pay for. Why not turn that knowledge into income?

If you're interested in knowing more about how to do this, you're sure to enjoy my new video training and “how to” manual, “10 Proven Ways to Make $10,000 Per Month”. You can only get it if you're a member of my Writing Riches Community. Click here to learn more.
