This week, we're discussing the best way to monetize your writing.
If you've ever been sick of selling your words for cents, you'll be pleased to know about this epic opportunity. I first came across it one day as I casually consumed some content on LinkedIn.
Up came a post from Barbara Corcoran.
She's famous for the TV show "Shark Tank" and for being a wildly successful businesswoman, which is when I grew skeptical.
Is Barbara really taking the time to post long, drawn-out LinkedIn posts that engage and educate her larger-than-average audience?
It couldn't be.
How in the world could she have time for that?
That's when I found out about the most profitable path for digital writers.
Ghostwriting is like being a secret agent.
But instead of spying on people, you're going undercover inside the minds of important people. And once you extract the necessary information, you package it in a way that would resonate with the masses.
Like a literary ninja.
And here's the cool part. Even though you aren't getting credit for your work (since the content is posted under your client's name) you still get a fat stack of cash.
It takes skill to be a ghostwriter, but if you're good, you're valuable.
💸 Make Money like Monopoly
Think about this.
You take over someone's Twitter account for a month. They sell products, services, or whatever else you can think of. Your writing generates an additional $10,000 that month.
All you'd then need to do is convince them to pay you a portion of that additional revenue. Think about it, why would they say no? They're making more money while doing less work.
Don't you think they'd pay you indefinitely?
This gets really interesting when you craft a compelling offer. At some point, you'd have clients lining up outside your house.
And the cool thing is, you can even write for people that just want something like followers or subscribers. Typically, ghostwriters work with executives and founders who want to build a following on social media.
To them, that's worth a lot. And to you and I? As writers?
It's worth tons.
There are plenty of different ghostwriting opportunities.
You can write:
- Social media
Honestly, anything you can think of that might be worth something for someone, you can ghostwrite. All you need to do is build skills and find someone who doesn't have the time to do it themselves.
It's super lucrative because it fulfills a starving need.
If people can't do it themselves, they'll gladly pay you. And you won't need to worry about writing articles on freelancing sites for pennies on the dollar anymore.
With ghostwriting, the opportunities are seemingly endless.
If you loved this issue, share it with your internet friends. If you hated it, send it to someone you absolutely despise.
