Are you a freelance writer or interested in freelance writing? Your best option then would be to start your own blog site to get your work seen. While it is difficult for many freelance writers to think about publishing their writing for free, consider the three different methods you can utilize to profit from with a blog.
The first way would be to do all the publishing yourself, putting all your work in your blog site, or sites should you have more than one area of expertise. This would allow search engines to “slurp” up the quality content you create, and allow the right people to visit your blog – which is called “targeted traffic”. You can profit from this traffic by selling advertising, using third-party advertising services such as pay-per-click or pay-per-lead programs, or promote affiliate programs and products. But chances are you would want to focus on the writing part and on making your customers stick around – your best bet in this case would be pay-per-click or affiliate programs.
You can publish your writing in your own free ezine, newsletter, ebook, or some other informational product and use the blog to promote those products. Still, you would be able to profit from your affiliate programs, but you get even a bigger chance to make additional money by promoting the company’s informative literature.
You can publish your own ezine, newsletter, ebook, or some other informational product that is only available for purchase and use your free blog to capture leads and promote those products. The advertising and affiliate option is still there as a means to augment any earnings that you make from sales.
You can make a very nice living from giving your writing away but if you do not want to do that then you can choose to only give away a small portion and only share the balance of your work with paying customers. Either way you will have complete power and control over your own published work and you will reap all the financial rewards from your own hard work and talent.
Freelance writers should consider self publishing with a blog using one of these three profit models.
