Make money as an expert online. You’ve probably heard this line before. Many times. Like, make money by becoming a survey taker. Or as a medical billing specialist. Or as a freelance writer. All of these offers sound good, but there’s always a catch. Like you have to give them money, or they promise to give you money. And then the money turns out to be very little. Not what they promised.
So how do you make money writing as an expert online?
It’s simple. First you have to believe that you are an expert in something. And everyone is an expert in something.
So if this is true, then there has to be something that you are an expert in. And once you figure out what that is, start writing about it. Online. And the more individual it is, the better. And if you are the only one writing about it, you will eventually make money online as an expert.
Now that I have stated the obvious, here are some real tips to help you make money writing as an expert online:
Make Money Writing As An Expert Online, Tip #1.
Become a writer for yourself. Stop working for other people. Because you are not going to find anything different by writing at home for someone else than you will by going to work at an office. Working at home on your computer while working for someone else will still suck the life out of you.
Make Money Writing As An Expert Online, Tip #2.
Start a blog. Generic and over-used advice, I know. In fact, telling someone they need to start a blog these days is like telling someone they need to breathe air. Nevertheless, I am telling you to start a blog that is un-generic. So let’s start with some topics that you will absolutely not start a blog about:
- Fitness Tips
- Home Repair
- Home Remedies
- Diet Advice
- Any Electronic Devices
- Travel/Dining Out
These topics are so glutted and so overpopulated that your blog will never be found. And trust me when I tell you, as a digital advertising copywriter for over ten years, there is nothing new to add to these topics right now. So by starting a blog with “your take” on any of these subjects, you will just add yourself (as another wishful thinker) to this pile of sensible, but unfollowed blogs. And if you have tried one of these blogs before and not gotten anywhere, then you know what I am talking about.
Okay. So by now you are asking, “What do I write about then, Mr. Know-It-All ?”
I’m glad you asked that.
Make Money Writing As An Expert Online, Tip #3.
Before you start your blog, you will have to do a lot of soul-searching.
Since I believe that everyone is an expert on something, I believe there has to be something you know better than anyone else. It’s up to you to figure this out. But when you do, this is what I want you to write a blog about. It can be about anything. No subject is too obscure.
However, that said, it may not be something you want to write about. Because you are so set on writing about something sensible - like cooking, computers, or fitness. And although you like a subject, you don't want to write about it. Because you think no one will read about it. But think about the millions of people who are reading stuff on the internet every day. There has to be an audience for your topic. Even if it is a small one.
And if you write about something really interesting that only you understand – this small audience will also understand. And they will tell everyone in their social network.
“Someone finally gets me!” they will tweet. And the people they know will find you and follow you. And so on. Until everyone is following you.
This may sound a little dramatic, but you can see how devoting yourself to a blog about something you know better than anyone else will eventually help you make money online as an expert. Because you’re the only one who knows it as well as you do. And everyone will have to come to you if they want to know more. And they will want to know more.
Make Money Writing As An Expert Online, Tip #4.
Take your time picking a subject. In fact, take as much time as you need to figure out what you know better than anyone else - before you start writing. It may take a few months. But I guarantee you, once you find a topic you can devote yourself to, you will make money writing as an expert online.
I know you can do it.
