Hi, I’m Lisa and these are my two wonderful, funny, full-of-mischief babies, Grace and Ethan, and the inspiration for this blog. I became a mum in 2013 and my world was turned upside down. Gone were the carefree days of early morning gym visits, last minute nights out and regular trips to the beautician. Even my professional life took a hit and I left the security of my full-time job as a health journalist to concentrate on being mum.…

I saw everything. I saw my life. And I saw that there was no God punishing me or rewarding me, but I
was creating it all. Through my thoughts I was choosing the life and times I was experiencing and I saw
that everyone else was doing the exact same thing. We were all unconsciously having thoughts that
were creating the lives that we were experiencing.
So I decided to change my thoughts, and my life changed.

5 Ways to Build a Business and Get Paid for Authors & Bloggers

1. Get Paid to Write Articles for Blogs, Magazines, and Journals

Despite talk of global “content fatigue,” major publications — both on- and offline — must keep publishing content or die.

That means popular WordPress blogs, magazines, and journals remain hungry for quality content writing — and many are willing to pay for it too. You’ll need to hustle to find the best opportunities, understanding that success won’t happen overnight, but freelancing for these publications is still a smart way to make money online as a writer.

2. Make Money by Creating Collateral for Content-Hungry Businesses

In the last five years, content marketing — this concept of creating valuable content to attract customers and build credibility and trust — has undoubtedly gone mainstream.

The result? More and more businesses are getting into the content game. Some have a clear strategy, while others are just jumping on the bandwagon and hoping it pays off down the line.

This has created a market for smart writers who can write for a specific audience. These content-hungry businesses need articles, white papers, case studies — the list goes on. And they fully expect to pay for them.

Breaking into this market can be tough without a few contacts to get you started, but it’s not impossible.

3. Get Paid to Write by Becoming a Best-Selling Kindle Author

What about making it big as an author? Could that be your best route to a life of freedom as a full-time writer?

Well, it’s certainly more realistic than it used to be. Ten years ago, writing a best-selling book was a distant dream for most writers and self-publishing on Kindle was often dismissed as a vanity exercise.

But today, thanks largely to Amazon and Kindle, the self-published book market is gigantic and making money from writing books is far more achievable.

4. Make Money Writing as a Conversion-Focused Copywriter

Copywriting, in a nutshell, is instructions to make readers take a specific action.

Sales letters, video scripts, even product descriptions — these all need writing by someone, and they live or die on the results they produce.

Copywriting may not seem fundamentally different to other forms of writing, but in practice, it’s a discipline all of its own.

While there’s a trend towards more conversational, empathetic copywriting — moving away from the hype-fuelled “hard sell” — you still need a solid understanding of the principles of persuasion.

5. Build a Niche Blog and Promote Third Party Products

I’ll be honest — building a popular blog is tough. Really tough.

Once you’ve scaled your blog beyond a certain point, less time is spent doing the thing you love i.e. writing.

So if your dream is to build a six-figure blog, you’d better be as excited about the prospect of running a business as you are about writing your next post. (In fact, if you’re making six figures, writing is one of the things you should probably outsource.)

But there is a path to making money from a blog where you still spend a good proportion of your time writing. And it starts with picking a blog niche where a large, passionate audience already exists. This is where you can find successful products from trusted names to sell.

Promoting affiliate products is a much smarter way to start earning money from a blog than creating your own product. With an affiliate product, someone else has already done the hard work of validating the market and building the product.. Someone else gets to handle the pre-sales inquiries, payments, refunds, and product support.

Affiliate products pay high commissions too, sometimes 50% or even more. The incremental production cost of digital products is essentially nothing.
