Calling All Writers: Get on the WriteTrack

For all of you writers who have not yet joined HubPages, now is a great time to do it. I know that many of the people who read this blog are my eHow friends, and some of you have already joined and started writing your Hubs. Now is the time to put it all to the test. Can we make this work? Yes, and HubPages has built in tools and money making systems that can benefit all of us.

HubPages is a revenue sharing site, which means that any money earned with AdSense is split between the company and the writer. But, they also have a referral program that enables you to earn money from people who sign up using your referral tracker. You can also tag articles written by other writers with your referral tracker and earn a portion of the AdSense revenue generated by your links.

If you want to get on the Write Track:

First join HubPages, it is free.

Second, get set up with AdSense, Amazon and eBay, or any of the affiliate marketing programs you choose.

Third, start writing and publishing your hubs (articles). Look through our followers and find other hubbers/followers and link to other hubs as well.

The HubPages system makes forming a network of Hubbers who are committed to each other's success super easy. That is what the Write Track is all about. For all of you who are looking for new outlets and ways to make money writing, this is a great opportunity. Granted, it takes time to build a satisfying income, but it is worth the effort.

Looking forward to seeing you soon on HubPages.

Make Money Writing for Local Websites

As a freelance writer, your biggest challenge is to sell what you write. Finding the market isn't always easy. You are up against tons of competition. Putting your articles into a writer's pool is one way of getting exposure for work you have already produced. Another way to get jobs is to market your services to website owners.

More than likely, there are numerous companies in your home town that have a Web presence in need of quality content. Therein lies your little gold mine. The potential for success is huge is you are willing to spend the time marketing to the locals. In some cases, they may need a little education along the way. In other words, you may have to sell them on the idea that they need content, before you can sell them your services.

Put together a presentation, a website or blog that describes your services, expertise and experience as well as a discussion of why content is so important. You will also want to include samples of your published work. Or, if you are yet to be published, include writing samples for your potential clients to review.

Once you have your basic marketing campaign designed, you will be ready to go public and begin offering your services. As with any business, it will take time to build your clientele. Be patient and persistent. If you have the skills and talent, you can make money writing.
