Why Writers Have An Advantage In The Current Economy

If you’ve been watching the news you’ve probably noticed that the economy doesn’t seem to be getting better.  In fact, it seems to be getting worse.  Unemployment is the highest it has been in the past 25 years.  For both the employed and the unemployed, the outlook is bleak.  But, for writers there is a ray of hope.

Writing Is Easy Work And Easy Money

Writing is mostly a skill, with a dash of talent thrown in.  To be a writer means you enjoy writing.  Not everyone does.  Some people hate to write.  But for those who are skilled at it, there is the unique opportunity to make money from something you enjoy.  From the non-writer’s perspective, ideas and words just seem to come to you out of thin air, giving you the ability to make money from nothing.  This isn’t exactly the case no matter how much you love to write.  It does take at least a little work or research to come up with a good written manuscript for a book, booklet, or article.  But, when you enjoy writing it’s easy work, and therefore easy money.

Booklets Put You In Control Of Your Income

The best thing about writing booklets is that it costs you nothing to start, and you can go at your own pace.  While it’s true that the faster you get your booklet on the market the faster you can make money, you are under no pressure to move at lightning speed.  If you prefer to give your manuscript more thought, carefully crafting each word of your masterpiece, you are free to do so.

Going at your own pace also means you don’t have to publish your manuscript until you are ready.  Don’t have the funds for printed copies right now?  You can wait until you do to go to print.  Or, you can take advantage of your freedom as the sole creator of your work and publish fewer copies, or publish your work as an ebooklet.

When you progress at your own pace, it means you move to the next step when you are ready.  You are the one in charge of your work and your profit from that work.  Not only are you free to move through the process at your own pace, but you’re also free to price your work at whatever the market will bear and you don’t have to split the profits with anyone else.  What you earn, you keep!

Writers Have An Advantage In This Economy

As a writer, you have an advantage in this economy that the non-writer doesn’t have.  People are more hungry for information now than they have ever been.  You have a skill that you can draw upon to bring you income, whether you’ve lost your job, retired from it, or you still have your job but need extra income to make ends meet.  You have the ability to make a profit from the skill and knowledge you possess – without having to go to anyone else to make it happen.  Most people have some kind of knowledge and skill, but they must rely on someone hiring them in order to use it.  As a writer, you do not need to work for someone else in order to use your skill.

Booklets Make Publishing Easy

Booklet publishing, as opposed to book or article publishing, greatly enhances this opportunity because they are so quick and easy to write.  To make money from articles, you must usually rely on a publication for payment.  And while you can self publish a book, it is a much more costly endeavor than self publishing a booklet.  This makes booklets the perfect vehicle for the writer looking for a fast, easy and inexpensive way to profit from their skill and knowledge.

To Your Riches,
