I’ve just posted a new article at the Fab Freelance Writing Blog which will help you to get writing jobs.
Here’s an excerpt:
Are you a new freelance writer who’s worrying about the competition? Relax. To all intents and purposes, your only competition is with yourself. You’re unique, and so are your clients: you just need to find the perfect clients for YOU.
Here are four steps to boosting your freelance writing income, and beating your “competition.”
“3. Develop Your Writing Skills: Spend Time Learning Every Day” is especially applicable to your work with Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) — at the end of your Web writing training, you’ll have great writing skills, and these translate to money.
If you’re looking for a part time job, consider using your writing skills and writing Web articles. You can make more than you would doing other part time work, and you can work from home.
When you write online, you don’t need to be a literary genius, because people are not reading online, they’re skimming for information. This means that writing speed and efficiency are more important than talent.
In next week’s Fab Freelance Writing Ezine, I discuss making money writing articles.
Here’s an excerpt:
It’s very easy to make money online with articles; the more you write, the more income you make. However, it’s essential that you PLAN and take a long term view because you need to get known as a competent, reliable article writer first.
Once you’re known for the quality of your work, you can charge more, and you’ll quickly build up a stable of clients who buy articles from you every month.

In Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) you discover how to set up websites and monetize them quickly. As a writer, you’ve got endless opportunities for making money online, once you know how to set up websites.
I’m often asked by subscribers: “What kind of site should I set up first?”
I always advise them to set up their “name” site first. Your name site is the site which has your own name as the domain. For example, my name site is angelabooth.com.
Once you’ve set up your name site, you can set up other sites to make money.
Many of my sites, especially many writing-niche sites (like this site), tend to have lots of content. I also have lots of review sites, in many niches.
Here’s what “Choosing A Topic For A Website” says about review sites:
Review Sites – Review sites are great because all you have to do is review different products and/or services. You can review anything and still make money. You could review cell phones, credit cards, insurance companies, digital cameras, baby products, home and/or garden products, office supplies, books, movies, bedding, clothes, food, or virtually anything else that someone would have an opinion on.
Review sites have many benefits:
* They’re small — usually from three to six pages;
* Because they’re small, they’re fast to set up (think minutes, rather than days)
* They can be highly profitable.
So, get started — set up your first site, and then set up another one. Every site you create is another way for you to boost your income. Enjoy the process: I love creating sites, and once you get into the swing of it, you will too.
Although the outsourcing sites are great for finding freelance writing jobs fast, many freelance writers avoid them. If you’re spooked by having to compete and make bids the information in this article will help you.
Here are some tips to turn you into a bidding dynamo.

Your writing business can be more profitable that you imagine. Want to double your income from your writing this year? It’s more than possible for you, if you set that as your goal. In fact, just by setting the goal, you’ve gone a long way toward achieving it.
Here’s what you need: the desire to achieve your goal, backed up determination, then you need a daily FOCUS on that goal. If you have these three attributes, not only will you double your income, but you’ll be amazed at how quickly it happens.
There’s no limit to your income from your writing on the Web. Some bloggers are making $30,000 a month from their businesses — if it’s possible for them, it’s possible for you, too.
Dissolve Your Disabling Beliefs by Writing Them Down
To clear the way for your accomplishment, take a few minutes to dissolve any disabling beliefs which may be standing in your way. The challenge with deep-rooted beliefs is that they become unconscious. They affect our behavior because we don’t know we hold them.
Open a new computer file, or get a notepad and pen. Set a timer (a kitchen timer will do) for five minutes. Complete this sentence: “I can’t double my writing income this year because____________”
Write, without pausing or thinking, until you hear the timer.
Excellent. Now you’ve made your disabling beliefs conscious. You know what they are, and because they’re conscious, you can refute them, so that they can no longer affect your behavior. Rip up the paper, or delete the computer file.
Think About Your Goal Morning and Evening
Did you set any New Year’s resolutions this year? If you did nothing other than set a resolution, it faded from your mind by the end of January. Here’s how to prevent that happening with your new goal.
Every morning, before you get out of bed, think about what doubling your income would do for you and the people you love. Do the same thing before you fall asleep each night.
Just think about having achieved your goal in a relaxed manner. This builds your desire. The more you day dream about your achievement, the more you’ll build you determination, and that determination will develop into a complete focus on your goal.
You’ll have a new outlook on life, and because you’re thinking and behaving appropriately, you’ll have the outcome you want.
You can make money writing, and can achieve any income goal you care to set. Discover how to make money writing with Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) — you get all the tools you need for an outstanding writing career.
Do you want money sent to your PayPal account every day? Many new writers hunt for “writing jobs” online when they want to make money writing, but this is a mistake. If you want success, you must do what others don’t do.
Here are three easy steps to make quick money from your writing and quit your day job within a few weeks — a writer I know used this method and had so many writing jobs lined up that he quit his job after three days.
1. Get Your First Testimonial for Your Writing
The people who hire you to write want to know that you CAN write. You’d be amazed at the number of “writers” who take people’s money and run. Therefore, your very first step must be to get at least one testimonial for your writing.
This testimonial should include some way to contact the person who’s given you the testimonial: a Web address, an email address, or a phone number. In other words, this testimonial must be genuine.
There are various ways to get your first testimonial. One way that works is to create a listing for your writing service on eBay, with a BIN (Buy It Now) option. If you’re familiar with eBay, and have good feedback, you can leverage this to sell your writing services.
Another way that works to get your first testimonial is to advertise on Craigslist, although this takes more time, because you need to create several unique ads.
Here’s a third way that works. This method is fast and simple, and I’ve no idea why more new writers don’t use it. Just contact a professional writer who has a blog, and offer to write a guest post. You’ll be writing for free, in exchange for a testimonial. If you’re a reasonable writer, it shouldn’t take you longer that an hour to write the guest post, and you have your testimonial.
2. Leverage Your Testimonial in Your Signature File on Forums
Now you have a testimonial, you can leverage it. Here’s how: visit forums where people who buy writing hang out. These are forums for webmasters and Internet marketers. (Avoid writers’ forums; they can’t hire you.) Join a couple of busy forums and start interacting with others.
Your signature (the blurb at the bottom of your forum posts) must contain a snippet from your testimonial.

Be professional and courteous in all your interactions on a forum: don’t spam, just become a part of the forum, and people will hire you.
3. Offer Something More: Become an Expert
Now you’re getting writing jobs, it’s time to specialize. As a specialist, you can charge more, and you’ll be hired by clients who have larger businesses with writers on retainer.
So there you have it: three steps to make quick money writing and quit your day job. Have fun, and enjoy writing: you’ll agree it’s the best “job” you’ve ever had.

Runners Yoga, a site I set up on Weebly in about ten minutes for the first page.
One of the most common questions I’m asked by new Web writers before they join Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) is: “Do I really have to create my own Web sites?”
Here’s the short answer: no, you don’t. You can always hire it done. Just go to getafreelancer.com or another out-sourcing forum, and someone will do it for you for less than $50.
However, you just might want to do it yourself, because there are many free services online that let you create a website in minutes.
Weebly has become my own personal favorite: I’ve just paid for a Pro account so I can have more sites (you get two sites in the free version.)
(Basically, I intend to use Weebly to set up sites fast. Weebly sites are incredibly easy and fast to set up. Once I get them making some money, I’ll sell them.)
If you’re just starting to make money writing online, free Weebly is all you need for the first few months — you can set up your online portfolio, can create a blog and in general just get yourself set to really make great money writing.
Discover how to set up your own sites, and make money writing with SYWON.
In Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON), you discover not only how and what to write, but how to sell what you write too.
In early lessons, you learn how to build Squidoo lenses, and as with everything else you learn in SYWON, you can put your new skill to work to make money.
Why not create some “for sale” lenses, as others do?
Create lenses and sell them
I’ve been paying more attention to my Squidoo lenses lately because they’re a great source of backlinks and therefore traffic to my other Web sites and blogs.
I don’t sell lenses, but if I were looking for an additional income stream, I certainly would do. A lens with six or seven modules takes me around half an hour to create, and since lenses sell anywhere from $40 to $200, it’s worth doing.
Enter “buy Squidoo lens” into Google, and you’ll find others who are crafting and selling lenses, which shows that there’s a demand. Many people would like to use Squidoo and fit lenses into their overall marketing, but they don’t want to take the time to build lenses from scratch. This is where you come in.
Once you’ve sold the lens, you click a button, as above, and transfer the lens to the new owner. Very easy and simple.
In the early lessons of Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) Web writing training I show you how to get a Web site online for free using Squidoo.
Squidoo can make lot of money for you, and it’s a lot of fun too. Here’s SYWON’s lens on Squidoo.
I suggest that you make using this free application part of your business plan, and spend a little time creating lenses every day.
Popular blogger PotPieGirl writes:
Through process and elimination, I learned how to generate real live income from those free pages at Squidoo. I couldn’t believe it! I kept duplicating my process, trying new things and removing ineffective things until it became a simple, daily action plan that I did every day.
After a bit of time, all the parts came together into a whole and money started to come in consistently. It felt like a miracle! And it was all because of this simple little action plan I put together. I was then able to pay the bills AND fund my online business so I could create my own niche sites and have things like website hosting and an auto-responder.
Best part of all – I was no longer overwhelmed and frustrated… and THAT is PRICELESS!
So whether you’re a Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) subscriber or not, do use Squidoo to generate income. Others are doing it, and so can you.
We cover creating lenses with Squidoo extensively in our make money writing traing, so if you’re a Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) subscriber, I hope you have at least three or four lenses.
I’ve always looked on Squidoo as a way of creating a presence and backlinks, rather than looking on the site as a way to make money writing.
This post "One Squidoo Lens, One month, $1,000" opened my eyes to the income generating potential of Squidoo, however:
Now I’ve earned $1,000 in a 30 day period from a single lens. That is also very very cool.
Will the earnings from this lens carry on forever? I doubt it.
Will I be able to use the lessons I’ve learned from this lens and the nearly 400 others I’ve built to continue to build lenses that make money? You betcha.
Just because of the money-making potential, I’m devoting more time to Squidoo in 2009, and I strongly suggest you to likewise — Squidoo lenses are simple to create (you should be able to create a lens from an article in under 20 minutes), and as you can see, they have great potential.
