What would you do if you lost your main source of income? This question became reality for an acquaintance of mine last week when he lost his job. Fortunately, he has a valuable skill he can rely on to bring him income outside of a job.
You Possess A Valuable Skill
As a writer, you possess a valuable skill. But, you must know how to use it in order to obtain the most benefit from it. Not every piece of writing brings wealth. Most things authors write bring them little to nothing. Fiction? Who has time for that anymore? Unless of course, you’re writing for the teen market. But, even then you have so much competition, not from other authors, but from the likes of facebook, myspace, twitter, and even the cell phone. Who has time to read?
Writing for younger children may seem like a plausible idea. Forget that one! Those younguns are all too busy on Webkins and other such websites.
Everyone Needs Information
If fiction isn’t where it’s at (and just to set the record straight I’m not saying you CAN’T make it with fiction, only that it’s REALLY, REALLY HARD), how about non-fiction? Now you’re talking! Everyone needs information. After all, that’s why you’re reading this blog right now! But, wait a minute. If nobody has the time to read a fiction book, who has the time to read a non-fiction book? Very, very few people do. In the U.S. alone only 2% of people who start reading a book actually ever finish it.
This is why booklets are such a great idea. They don’t take much time to read. But, wait – it gets EVEN BETTER – because, they don’t take much time to write either!
Booklets Are A Way To Make Money Fast
If you lost your main source of income today, whether that’s a job or something else, you could fall back on your writing skills. You could quickly create a booklet, get it on the market fast, and start making money with it right away. This is something you can’t do when you write a book. Books are a slow process from the time you get the idea to the time you start making money.
Having the skill is only half of what you need. Using the skill is the other half. But, you must use it the right way in order to get the riches. There are plenty of dead end writing jobs out there. There are plenty of ways to make money slowly, a trickle at a time. Booklets are a way to make money fast.
It’s a good idea to have a back-up plan in place just in case the worst does happen and you find your main source of income suddenly gone. Booklets make a great back-up plan!
To your riches!
