How to Create Online Income – Part 1

More and more people are looking to the Internet to make money. And sadly, 80% of them will fail miserably and never make a dime. Only 1% to 2% of them will succeed and create decent online income. The rest will make a few dollars here and there, but nothing substantial.

And what is the reason for this? It is not because creating online income is difficult. It is actually very easy, once you know how. There are thousands of ways to make money online. In this article, I will show you how to easily create online income by writing articles. In future articles, I will discuss how to create online income using other techniques.

Although most everyone can speak, not everyone considers themselves to be a great writer. But you don’t have to be a great writer to create online income writing. If there is one word of advice I can give you, it’s this; write it like you say it. Many people try to write long reports using big words thinking that it will impress others. Nahhh! Readers aren’t impressed that easily.

Most people read articles and information for one reason; they want to learn something. Readers are much more impressed by an article that teaches them exactly what they wanted, as opposed to an article full of big words that says nothing. So, KISS (‘Keep It Simple, Stupid)!

So, how can you create online income by writing? You can begin by writing articles. If you are not sure of the format, you can get tons of article writing information from the link to my website below. There are 2 ways to create online income writing articles. The easiest way is to write articles for others.

Webmasters and bloggers are always looking for fresh articles to add to their sites. And, fortunately for you, they are willing to pay for it. If you are just beginning to write articles to create online income, you might only be able to get $2.00 to $3.00 per 500 word article. However, even at that low rate, you can easily write 10 articles in a single day and earn $20 to $30 dollars for a few hours work.

To find anxious article buyers, go to the large forums like the Warrior Forum and Digital Point Forum. After registering, look for threads related to article writing. There are people looking to buy articles at these forums almost everyday. Respond to these posts and ask them to send you a pm (private message) for details on your article writing service. Once you strike a deal, start writing and begin to create online income! It’s that easy.

Dan Poynter – How To Write Your First Non-Fiction Book

Self-Publishing Guru Dan Poynter explains and educates new writers on how to write publish and promote their first book.

Dan Poynter fell into publishing. He spent eight years researching a labor of love. Realizing no publisher would be interested in a technical treatise on the parachute, he went directly to a printer and “self- published.” The orders poured in and he suddenly found he was a publisher himself.

In 1973, he became interested in a new aviation sport, couldn’t find a book on the subject so he sat down and wrote one. After four months of writing and intense research that took him from coast to coast, he delivered the manuscript to the printer. So far, Hang Gliding has sold over 130,000 copies-a “best seller”!

Continuing to write, Dan has produced more than 76 books and revisions so far, of which some have been translated into Spanish, Japanese, Russian, British-English and German. Over the years, Dan has developed a system of writing that makes it all so easy and fun. His books are loaded with facts and figures and contain detailed inside information. They are always up-to-date because he revises them before going back to press. Dan has sold millions of his books, including several best sellers, for ten of millions of dollars in sales. Many of his books sell at the rate of 10-20,000 copies per year, every year.

For many years, Dan ran Para Publishing all by himself. In fact, he was often billed as the world’s largest one-person publishing company. As a one-man show, an author/publisher who handled all the writing, publishing and promotion, office management and shipping himself, Dan is in the best position to advise a first time self-publishing author who is on a limited budget. Today, Dan has staff, a number of products and services (books, reports, tapes, disks, seminars, etc.) and a large suite of offices with a 360 view of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

Dan has traveled to more than 40 counties and he has even skydived into the north pole. He has written several technical books on parachutes and popular books on skydiving. When you have your own business and control your own product, you can pursue your dreams.

Dan’s work for publishing was recognized by the Publishers Marketing Association when they gave him the Benjamin Franklin Award. He was given the Irwin Award for the best electronic promotion campaign by the Book Publicists of Southern California. He is a past vice-president of PMA.

Dan Poynter’s seminars have been featured on CNN, his books have been pictured in The Wall Street Journal, and his story has been told in U.S. News & World Report. The media comes to him because he is the leading authority on book marketing, promoting and distributing.

Blogging: Writing and Publishing Your First Blog Entry

The content of your blog is an important factor in gaining traffic and acquiring a target audience. Publishing your first article or item is a great milestone in your blogging career. Fortunately, there are several basic guidelines, which can make your content more effective to your audience, adored by the search engines and respected by the world of blogging.

Publishing an Effective Content

Before you begin to write anything on your blog, you should know who your target audience is and what they want. If you see these factors as irrelevant for your blog because your blog is not business oriented in any way, you must remember that if you want readers then these factors are really relevant.

Always remember that where there are readers there is something interesting to read. The only reason why people read is because they want something. If you really want to achieve some kind of massive readership, you must strive to make your content interesting and actually what readers want.

First of all, keep in mind that communication is the key. More so, your communication must be authentic. The time when you publish your content is also the time when you let your true self surface. Blogs are personal in nature and communication is the key to being personal. The fact that each blog is unique because each writer is unique is enough for you to not to worry about future similarities with other blog entries. Keep in mind that whatever topic you are blogging about you must incorporate your personality with your writing.

In order to create a loyal target audience, it is important for the visitors to trust you and relate to you. It does not necessarily entail that they know about your personal details but you must connect with your audience in an authentic manner.

After establishing your communication with your audience, the content must also be credible. The blog must have authenticity even though credibility takes a lot of time to build.

The moment you begin publishing your content, which is of high value and useful to the readers, you also start establishing your authority. There will come a time when your readers ask you for advice or seek for your opinion; this is the time when you have achieved some kind of credibility and you must use this to build your reputation as a blogger.

The Blogger’s Block

Blogging is writing but uses a different medium. There are several methods to fight blogger’s block. Always remember that your blog software exists to serve you and not to frighten you. You do not have to try blogging carrying the idea that you have prolific writing skills, or a journalism degree. The fact is that you have something to say and you want others to hear it. However, if you are feeling stuck on an idea, there are several suggestions that you can apply when creating the content for your blog.

Firstly, you can try visiting other blogs. Visit those blogs that interest you and pick ideas and topics from those blogs that might be worth blogging about but keep in mind the relevance of the topic and your readership. You can also syndicate your news updates. You can do this by subscribing to news services online because they allow you to save time on searching using keywords. This is most useful for bloggers.

self publishing?

can i self publish an ebook by myself and not go through a publishing website or pay anyone money? just do everything myself. please be as detailed as possible, i have no idea on how to turn my writing into an ebook and get it on the web. also, can anyone illustrate a childrens book?

Oh course if you turn it into an ebook, it will be nonprofit. Just start your own website and post it there, even simpler post it on some forums. Type the words into Microsoft Word or Adobe Reader. As for the illustrations ask a Photoshopper to do those for you, or you may do them yourself. Hope this helps.

The Future of Publishing – created by DK (UK)

This video was prepared by the UK branch of Dorling Kindersley Books and produced by Khaki Films (http://www.thekhakigroup.com/). Originally meant solely for a DK sales conference, the video was such a hit internally that it is now being shared externally. We hope you enjoy it (and make sure you watch it up to at least the halfway point, there’s a surprise!).

The clip was inspired by a video created by an Argentinean agency, Savaglio/TBWA entitled, “Truth”: http://bit.ly/truthvideo

Read an interview with the creator of the video on the Penguin Blog: http://bit.ly/futureofpublishing
