Choosing Quality Over Quantity

A few weeks ago I bought a pack of 20 pencils for only $2. And because I do most of my writing by hand, and often with pencils, I thought I'd bagged myself a real bargain. Not only did I have so many pencils for not much money, but they even had erasers on the end. Woot! Woot!

But guess what?

They all broke. As soon as I tried to sharpen them, the lead broke. AND the erasers all fell off as soon as I tried to use them.

Humph!

So I went to a stationery shop and bought individual pencils that cost over a dollar each. Yeouch!

But guess what?

I'm still using them, and they don't break, and the lead lasts a long time in between sharpenings. They don't have erasers though, but it doesn't matter because the last lot were useless.

And that got me thinking about everything that I buy and that I produce.

You've probably heard it before that quality is better than quantity, meaning that it's better to have a few quality products than a lot of cheap products.

And this applies to everything - houses, clothes, jobs (better to have a high-paying career that you love rather than work for low pay), and tools of the trade (including pencils).

It all comes down to cost per use, as in it's better to have a $20 t-shirt that you can wear 50 times than a $5 t-shirt that you can only wear a few times before it goes baggy and wears out. Not only does it equate to a smaller cost-per-use, but it looks better because it doesn't deteriorate as quickly.

This is why I usually (except for the odd pencil slip up) choose quality products, and this includes ebooks and courses that I buy to help me earn more money from my writing. I always make sure that they're made by someone who knows what they're talking about (as opposed to unknown 'authors' who write about how to earn a million writing books when I can't find even one that they've written), even if it costs me more money.

I also use everything I buy over and over again because if I buy something to help me write more and earn more but I don't use it, then that is a complete waste of money. But if I use it over and over until I can easily follow what it says, and make more money as well, then it was more than worth the purchase. If I buy an ebook or a writing course, I expect it to more than pay for itself because it's an investment, not a purchase.

It's the same with books. If I buy a great book full of really good information, I'll re-read it over and over again, and even make lots of notes and try out the advice it's giving. On the other hand, I get rid of books that aren't really useful, because I'd rather own a few great books than a lot of useless books.

When it comes to making purchases, it's no good penny-pinching to buy a lot of poor quality or useless products.

It's far better IMHO to always choose to have fewer but higher quality products.

And more importantly, use them.

Don't buy what you don't need and get the most out of everything you own.

Write It And Ship It

I was talking to someone a few weeks ago and she was showing me some of her work.

She's really good at writing and drawing and I told her that she should publish graphic novels because her drawings were really good and her stories were incredibly creative and intriguing.

I loved her work.

But she told me that she's too much of a perfectionist to publish any of her work yet, but once she gets it perfect, she'll publish it.

I suggested that she start a free blog and upload some of her artwork to it so that people can see her stuff and she can start a following so that by the time she publishes her first novel, she'll have readers waiting to buy it.

But she told me again that her work isn't yet perfect enough so not ready for the public to see it.

It made me almost sad to see her throwing away such a great opportunity while she waits for something that doesn't exist (perfection) to arrive.

There is a saying in the writing world that, I think, was started by Steve Jobs who said "Real Artists Ship." In this case, shipping means publishing. Putting it out in public where people can see it and criticise it (and they usually do).

It seems that many a creative type of person has a fear of shipping. A fear of someone looking at their work and saying they don't like it.

Well, our work isn't for everyone. Only for those who do like it or who find it useful.

So ignore the rest and when you're writing is good enough, ship it.

You Can't Polish a Turd

That's a quote from the Stephen Kind novel and movie, "Christine."

In the movie, a garage owner watches a young guy trying to fix up an old car (called Christine) that looks too beat-up and rusty for anyone to fix.

He watches the kid fitting new wiper blades over a broken windscreen, shakes his head, and says to his friend, "You can't polish a turd."

I love that line.

And in another way, it applies to selling.

If no one wants what you're selling then you may as well be trying to sell them a turd, because they won't want it no matter how much you polish it with your intriguing content and clever marketing.

Instead, you need to find a market, find out what they want, and provide it for them.

You could write an ebook or a course that can help them, or find a suitable affiliate product.

Then let them know how much the product will benefit them and everything they have to gain by owning it.

In other words, give them what they want.

Don't try and sell them what they don't want.

It will be like trying to sell them a polished turd.

They just won't be interested. No matter how presentable you make it look.

My New Year Writing Goals

It's nearly 2018 and I've been busying making lots of goals for next year because I want my writing success in 2018 to be far greater than 2017 (not that it was bad this year, but I always want more).

Part of my plan is to write and publish more books in the writing niche.

I'm also going to have monthly topics for my books, emails and websites.

This month's has mostly been about affiliate marketing (I started my goals early). January will be all about self publishing and February is about finding motivation and inspiration to write more.

All my chosen topics for 2018 are all designed to help you write more and earn more from your writing.

It's important to not only be able to write and earn more, but to absolutely love what you do.

To wake up every morning, excited to start writing and go to bed at night feeling great about all you've achieved.

And this is how being an affiliate marketer can help.

You only need to spend 10 or 15 minutes a day writing a blog post that contains an affiliate link and then get back to book writing.

Or you can set up affiliate websites.

Choose a niche, find products (or just one product) to promote, and write blog posts, emails, sales copy, marketing articles, and you can even do video and podcasts if you want to.

And if you're looking for products and ideas, VigLink has thousands of products and can automatically change links already on your site to affiliate links.

This makes it easy because it does the heavy work for you so that you can just keep on writing.

$700/Month Writing Blog Posts

I was reading an article recently about a freelance writer who earns over $700/month writing blog posts for a client.

She writes 5 blog posts a week and charges $35 for each one.

You can read the article at https://inkwelleditorial.com/become-a-six-figure-freelance-writer

Anyway, the point of this is why would her client pay so much for short blog posts?

And the answer is because they know that they can earn much more than this from them.

All blog posts, emails and online articles have 2 "jobs."

They provide a tip or another piece of useful information, and they make a sale or get the reader to perform another kind of CTA, Call To Action.

There are many smart writers who know how to earn money from everything they write and publish online. While many others earn nothing.

So if you're not earning an average of $35 from each piece of your online content, then ask why not?

Then look into how to do it.

There's no point writing lots of online articles and blog posts if you're not earning from them.

Unless of course, you enjoying writing just for the sake of it. In which case, ignore what I'm telling you.

But if you want to earn more money from your online content, this is something I talk about in-depth in my best selling ebook, Living The Laptop Lifestyle: How To Start & Grow A Profitable Online Business So You Can Quit Your Job.

And it's not too late to download your own copy and make 2018 your best writing year ever.

Don't Give It All Away

We all love a freebie.

It's great when you get an email with a link to a free download.

Or you visit a website full of loads of free offers.

And it's also good if you can find a few free things to offer your website visitors and email subscribers.

Just make sure that you don't give away too much. Otherwise your website visitors and email subscribers will come to expect it.

They'll think that everything you offer them is free.

This will make them not only reluctant to pay you money for something, but it can sometimes make them hostile.

I fell for this myself years ago when I was just getting started writing online.

I searched high and low for freebies I could give away on my website to attract more visitors.

But all it attracted was freebie-seekers.

I thought I was doing well getting so much traffic to my site and hundreds of people signing up for my emails.

But I wasn't making much money.

So I removed most of the free stuff and started offering products for sale.

And strangely enough, I found that people valued products they paid for much higher than the free stuff.

And many became repeat customers.

And speaking of freebies (which I don't do often), here's a link to a free 30-day planner to help you start the New Year your most productive and the most profitable.

Cheap Products Gets You Cheap Customers

Writing articles and other content can be a really profitable way to earn money from your writing.

But you really have to be careful about what you're selling.

And this can also apply to how you price your own books.

And that is, if you keep selling cheap products, you'll end up with cheap customers.

This doesn't mean your customers will be penny-pinchers, but rather, they'll come to only expect cheap prices from you.

So when you raise your prices or try to offer them something that is expensive, they won't be interested.

That's because you've "trained" them to only buy cheap things from you.

And because it takes just as much time and effort to sell both high and low priced products, only getting a few dollars for each sale can end up being a waste of time.

So give your customers what they need, instead of offering them cheap products.

When You Gotta Market Your Products

If you're making money as an online writer and affiliate marketer, you have to keep looking for quality products to promote.

Some are low-cost products while some are what are known as high ticket items.

But it doesn't matter if what you're selling costs a few dollars or a few hundred dollars, it all needs the same amount of marketing.

No one is going to buy anything unless it benefits them in some way.

This is where being a great marketer comes in.

No matter how much or how little the price is, if your customers don't want it, you can't sell it.

This is why it can make sense to sell high-quality, higher priced products.

That way you earn more money for each sale, and your customers get a better product.

Naturally, you won't sell as many, but your commission/royalties will be more.

You can learn more about finding the right products to sell at the Super Tips website.

Always Do This

I've been talking recently about affiliate marketing as being a good way to earn money from your writing.

Selling your own books is even better.

But however you choose to earn money as a writer, there's one thing that you must always be doing.

And that is growing your email list.

Having products to sell and plenty of online content to promote it is great.

But it won't help much if no-one sees it.

There are several ways you can promote your work, but the best way is through email.

Customers aren't going to seek you out.

It's you that has to stay in touch with them.

You need to let them know what you're selling and how it can help them.

And the bigger your list, the better.

So always be promoting yourself and your work to get more subscribers.

And then stay in touch with them often.

Send them lots of useful tips and information and give them links to all your promotional content.

Sent out emails every week, or preferably, every day.

Become the favourite person in their inbox.

The Guaranteed Way To Earn Money As An Affiliate Marketer

Making money as an affiliate marketer isn't difficult (it all depends on what you're promoting, how you're promoting it, and who you're promoting it to).

It can also be done for free.

All it takes is time.

Time to write up all your online content, your emails, and anything else you'll be writing and using to drive sales.

And there's also something else you have to do.

Or rather, it's something that you should NOT do.

This is the mistake that many writers make when they try and earn money as an affiliate marketer.

Doing this can almost guarantee to kill sales.

But not doing it is guaranteed to help you make sales.

So what is it that I'm talking about?

Trying to sell too many things at once.

Offering multiple products at once often confuses people.

And promoting too many things on your website looks cheap and "salesy."

Instead, I always find it better to just pick one product to sell, and then promote the hell out of it.

We're coming to the New Year now, so if you want to make more money as an affiliate marketer, see if you can make 2018 your highest earning year yet.

Make a plan and stick to it.

How I Started Making Money Online

I loved it when making money online from my writing became possible, because, before that, it was almost impossible.

The internet made it so easy - and so fast.

One of the ways I first started earning money online was with affiliate marketing through Click Bank.

(After a few years, I stopped marketing for them because they changed their Ts & Cs for affiliates and actually threatened to take money from affiliates if they didn't make enough sales. Since then they have revised their payment system and now I get paid every 2 weeks with no threat of deductions.)

At first I did it by simply putting banners on my website.

And while that made me some money, I soon realised that there was much more to affiliate marketing than this, with some affiliates earning six-figure incomes.

It took quite a bit of researching and practice, but eventually I discovered how to do it properly.

Now it’s much easier to make money with affiliate marketing because there is so much more information around.

There’s even a website called Super Tips (http://ruthiswriting.com/links/supertips.html) that not only has a free ClickBank forum, they have some really useful products like their Affiliate Shield software (http://ruthiswriting.com/links/affiliateshield.html) that can do several things, including changing affiliate links so that they bypass the product's sales page and go straight to the payment page, so that you can create your own, better sales page.

You only have to look at forums and products like these to see how much help there is now to earn money online from affiliate sales.

Which is how I first began earning money from my writing.

And I still do it today.

Spending Money To Make Money


A couple of weeks ago, I made an online purchase.

It was a huge purchase that cost me $2,000.

Why did I spend so much?

Because I plan to use what I bought to help me earn more money.

So it wasn't so much a purchase, as an investment.

What I bought was a huge package of marketing materials - DVDs, Audios, and books.

I haven't received them yet because they're physical products and are being shipped to me here in Australia from the USA.

Over the years, I've bought literally dozens (probably hundreds) of products about writing and marketing, but I've never paid so much before.

But there are many people who baulk at paying anything for what they think will help them write more and earn more.

They only want things that are free (or really REALLY cheap).

Then they wonder why they don't make any money.

But I've decided to go big or go home.

I'm aiming higher with what I buy, what I create, and how much money I make.

And I started big with the $2,000 marketing bundle.

If you feel the same way, make the switch.

Invest in whatever it is that will help you move your writing business forward.

And then get going.

Don't let penny-pinching hold you back any longer.

The Incredibly Simple Way I've Automated Affiliate Marketing

VigLink banner I discovered something recently that is a really simple way to earn money from a blog.

It’s called VigLink.

This is a company that is affiliated to hundreds of other companies, and when you copy and paste a small piece of script onto your blog, VigLink will automatically change words in your blog posts to affiliate links or PPC links so that you can earn money without having to do anything else.

The way it works is like this:

You sign up for an account at VigLink.

They supply a small piece of script for your blog/website.

Then if you mention a product, (say, eBay, for instance), it will automatically become an affiliate link.

And if you give a specific URL to a product, it will instantly be turned into an affiliate link if it is associated with one of the companies that they are affiliated with.

And that’s all there is to it.

VigLink is affiliated with some really top companies, many won’t even allow affiliates with small blogs.

But through VigLink you can gain access to all them all using just one account.

However, there is one thing you need to be aware of.

VigLink is only looking for blogs and websites with plenty of traffic and quality content that’s updated regularly.

So they only approve sites manually.

But once you have your account set up and your site’s been approved, all you have to do is keep writing and posting and let VigLink take care of your affiliate and PPC links.

So if you’re looking for a quick and extremely simple way to make more money from your blog, give VigLink a try.

I’m already using it myself on some of my websites.

Use the link below to find out more.

Writing For The Trade Press; An Overlooked Writing Market

“Stack Of Newspapers With Mouse” by hywards
Freelance writing is not only a great way to earn money as a writer, but it can also be a way to supplement your publishing income while you write your books.

But there is one freelance writing market that is overlooked by many writers, which means that there can be a better chance for you to get your articles published.

And that market is writing for the trade press.

Simply put, the trade press is magazines and newspapers aimed at a certain industry.

And, surprisingly, you'll find that most industries have their own publications.

So if you've ever had a job (and who hasn't), then you'll have worked in one particular industry or another. And chances are really high that there are publications aimed at others who work in the same industry.

But what do they publish?

Well, it all depends on the publication. But generally, they're looking for work-related stories or news about changes in the industry.

And even if you haven't' worked in a particular industry yourself, you might know someone who did, or still does, with an interesting story to tell and you could ask them if you can write about them.

You could even interview an older person about how different the job was in their day.

Once you start looking there should be ample ideas of what you can pitch to one of these magazines or newspapers (or even their websites).

And there's a place online that you can find a huge worldwide list of trade press publications.

Want to know where that list is?

You'll find a link to it in my free ebook for subscribers, "Writing For Cash."

If you haven't already downloaded your own copy, subscribe now.

And if you've already downloaded it but haven't used it yet...what are you waiting for?

How to Make Money Writing Articles

Image: “Female Writing On Notebook” by adamr
If you can write an article in 15 minutes or less, then you can earn a really good income from your writing.

How?

To begin with, just look at some of the ways you can make money from articles:

  • Blog posts
  • PLR
  • Emails
  • Auto-responders
  • Marketing
  • Expand into ebook chapters
  • Ghost Writing

From this list alone you can see that article writing is the life-blood of any online business with most of them how having a blog that they use to keep their customers up-to-date with all their latest news and products. They also have a list of subscribers who they regularly send emails to.

If you have an information website, you need to write content/articles all the time as well as use articles for marketing to bring more visitors to your site.

But just exactly how do you use articles to make money online?

Ghost writing is usually the first way people think about making money from writing articles. Writing them for other people. But as I’ve just shown you, there are various other ways to use articles too.

But is it really possible to write an article in 15 minutes, including research, proofing and editing?

To write articles quickly, it doesn’t take much talent but it does take the ability to put the right strategy in place and use it to write articles fast. It’s like setting up an assembly line of researching, writing and proofing.

Of course, I’m not talking about writing huge, long, descriptive articles, but about short informative articles of around 350 to 400 words.

These articles are meant to be general guides and not in-depth discussions. And the quickest way to make money out of these types of articles is to write them for other people.

Busy clients are happy to pay for quick articles.

If you use articles for marketing, they’re great for driving traffic back to your site or promoting your latest book. But if you want instant cash, then ghost writing is the way to do it.

You could advertise your article writing services on websites like fiverr.com and charge $5 per article. This way, working 5 hours a day, means you can write 100 articles a week (5 days a week) which will bring in a pretty good income, but you could probably charge more.

Another alternative is to write articles to market your own products or affiliate products. Done correctly, this can bring in a really steady income.

Penny Pinching Failures

Write Any Book In 28 Days Or Less
We all like to save money. I do too.

I’m always careful about what I buy and before I make a purchase I always think about what I’m going to use the item for (or how often will I wear it?), where I’m going to keep it, and how often it will come in handy.

Usually after much careful consideration I put things back on the shelf and leave the store.

And even if I’m grocery shopping I think of what I’m going to make with whatever ingredients I’m buying (I don’t buy much processed, ready-made-food) and how soon I’m going to do it.

And take away meals and eating out don’t happen too often for me. I much prefer my own food at home and even if I go for a day out, I’ll usually take my own drinks,  pack sandwiches and buy hot chips to go with them.

I’m pretty frugal in a lot of ways. I even have a notebook where I tally up everything I’ve bought in a month to see where I’m overspending (if at all) and where I can cut back.

Yep, I don’t like wasting money on things I don’t need or that I’m tricked into buying just because of clever marketing.

And I see others doing the same.

Except they’re doing it all wrong.

They’ll penny pinch at the supermarket yet buy takeaway food on the way home.

They’ll complain about the price of fuel and even drive around looking for the cheapest price, yet they’ll take short trips in their car every day instead of walking.

And how many people do you know who say that they have no money yet their kids have all the latest gadgets and toys?

I once saw a news item on TV on A Current Affair where they were talking to a couple who were being forced to move from their home because they said their mortgage was too high because of interest rate rises.

Yet I couldn’t get over the fact that they were packing up dozens of outdoor toys - swing sets, slippery dips, cubby house, sand pit, and multiple ride-on toys, and the mother of the two young children had a really fancy hair cut, manicured false finger nails and so much bling it much have weighed a ton.

And I see the same things happen when it comes to business.

People say they want to be successful, but when it comes to investing in themselves they don’t want to spend money on an ebook or an online course.
And I don’t know about you, but I much prefer to spend my money on things that are an investment in my writing.

Over the years I must have spent thousands of dollars on e-books, courses and other things that have helped me with my writing and marketing. I’ve even done a course in copywriting that cost several hundred dollars. I thought it was expensive but I knew that what I could learn would enable me to earn much more money than the cost of the course. And I was right.

I could have spent a few hundred dollars on a fancy computer or a bigger TV or ordered more takeaways so that I don’t have to cook.

But I’d rather spend my money on things that I need to help me write more, write better, market my work, make money blogging and writing, and sell more books.

How about you?

What are the important things you’re investing in?

How To Start a Money-Making Blog

Living the Laptop Lifestyle
There are so many people who want to work from home as an online blogger, but they don’t know how to start blogging or how to keep it going.

Luckily, because you’re already a writer, you’re ahead of the crowd because you’d have no trouble filling a blog with useful content.

But the big question is what to blog about?

It’s one thing to know that you want to earn money blogging, but knowing what to write about can be tricky.

The answer though is really simple.

You can either write about something you already know about

Or

Write about a subject you’re interested in.

As an example, in my ebook and blogging course, Living the Laptop Lifestyle, I demonstrate how this can be done with the subject of knitting.

This is a topic that many people know about because it’s their hobby. But is it really possible to have a money-making blog about something so simple as knitting?

On my sales page I show you an excerpt from the chapter about finding a niche for your blog and all the possibilities for earning income from something as simple as blogging about knitting.

I also know of one blogger who started a really popular blog about World War II. He had no first-hand experience of it, but he was passionate about the subject and could spend hours researching and reading about it and so put his efforts into a popular blog, which, unfortunately, he no longer has due to health and personal complications.

There is also another really successful blogger who started a blog about parrots when he found that there wasn’t enough information for parrot owners online. Today that is a thriving online business.

And there is also Rhonda Hetzel who started a blog about how she lives simply in her Sunshine Coast Hinterland Home in Australia. Now she is a best selling author and a local celebrity. You can read her blog at http://down---to---earth.blogspot.com.au

So you see, you can start a successful, money-making blog about almost any subject.

If it’s something that you know a lot about there is probably an audience for it.

But the real secret of successful blogging is getting it going and keeping it going CONSISTENTLY. Note the emphasis on the word “consistently.” It’s no good starting if you don’t keep going.

Just start and see how far it can take you.

You are a writer.

So write yourself a money-making blog.

Subliminal-Power - Reprogram your inner subconscious mind


I'm a big fan of self-improvement books and courses. I think each of us owes it to ourselves to become all that we can be.

But reading a book or following a course is so time-consuming. Sometimes I feel that there are so many aspects of my life I want to improve I'll be an old man before I've even changed half of them!

That's why I was delighted to discover Bradley Thomson and his incredible 'Subliminal Power' website.

Bradley's Subliminal Power tool lets you achieve all that you want to achieve in a fraction of the time and with absolutely NO effort whatsoever! It's a little tool that runs in the background on your PC, making carefully constructed 'suggestions' to your subconscious while you get on with your work. It's the mental equivalent of those abdominal exercisers that let you do 3,000 press ups while sitting in a chair!

With Bradley's technology you can raise your IQ to genius level, develop astonishing powers of concentration and recall, become a 'natural' salesperson or public speaker and even 'command' your body to lose weight. You can use subliminal messaging to be who YOU want to be with absolutely NO effort on your behalf!

It's far more powerful than hypnosis ... in fact, I'd go so far as to say it's the most powerful tool for self-empowerment there is.

Check out Bradley's site.

3 Different Ways To Make Money Blogging


“Blog Media Showing Weblog Website” by Stuart Miles
I’ve been asked many times about making money online as a writer.

My advice depends on each individual writer’s situation and goals.

Usually I say that if you want to earn money from your writing quickly, then freelancing is the way to go.

But what if you don’t want to write for other people and instead you want to write for yourself and earn money from your blog or website?

Well, if that’s the case, then there are 3 simple, easy and free ways to earn money from blogging.

1. Advertising. This simply means writing lots of blog posts or articles and surrounding them with PPC ads or paid ads. To earn money writing this way it would mean doing adequate research to make sure you’re using the correct keywords (to get enough traffic to your site) and to make sure your posts and/or articles are useful and informative so that people will want to read them. (Listen to an old - 2008 - but fascinating interview of Captain Tim Gorman who began blogging using nothing but PPC advertising on his sites and built a hugely profitable online business from it. )

2. Affiliate Marketing. To make money selling affiliate products means finding quality products that you can sell for commission and writing blog post or articles that help sell them.

3. Books. Naturally the best way to earn money writing is by selling your own books and ebooks. And these days, Amazon’s Kindle Publishing Platform (kdp.amazon.com) makes it so quick and easy to publish your books as ebooks and physical books, with no upfront cost to you. Then you can write articles or blog posts to really help sell them.

So, in a nutshell, these are the 3 easiest and simplest ways to earn money writing for your own blog or website.

Of course, you need to market it well to make sure you get enough visitors to your site, but that’s a whole other topic for another day.

But you can start today by keeping it simple just so that you can get it going.

And eventually, you’ll be able to work online from anywhere and live your own Laptop Lifestyle.

Crucial Writing Advice

“Hands Tearing Apart A Banknote” by Sira Anamwong
Lately I’ve received a few emails from people giving me their opinion on my blog posts.

But let me get one thing straight first -

My advice about how to earn money from your writing (which is what ALL my posts are about) are only aimed at one group of people - those who are serious about wanting to earn money from their writing AND who aren’t afraid to do the necessary work.

Yet the emails I’ve been receiving are from people who don’t actually want to write.

Instead it seems they only want to read about making money from writing and that somehow money will magically appear in their bank accounts.

They say they don’t have time to write.

Don't have the skills.

Don’t know how to start.

Don’t know how to keep going.

Or they’re just too busy doing other more important things.

So let’s get a few things right about this subject.

Earning money from writing means:

  • Writing every day.

  • Publishing/submitting everything you write.

  • Actually wanting to write.

  • Buying any books/resources necessary to help you.


All the advice I give is crucial if you want to be a money-earning writer.

So don’t let this fall of deaf ears.

You must be reading this because you want to earn money from your writing.

So do yourself a favour and write and publish/submit something today.

Then think about what you’ll write, publish/submit tomorrow.

Once you make a determined start it’s easy to keep going.

Make today the day you stop wasting time and start writing more.
