You may think it’s outlandish but writing quotes for Instagram and other platforms is one way this writer earns more than $1,000 per hour! Think it’s not possible? Read on.
And today with the latest technology of programs like ChatGTP there’s no limit to what type of content you can create and how much you can earn.
Monetizing Your Words
Words matter. We’ve all heard the ‘sticks and stones…’ saying but we know in truth words carry tons of power. Words can help us, hurt us, drive us to action, and words can heal.
Big companies know this helps them to sell their products. And they pay the right people big money to create the right emotions to get behind them and target their audience.
Case in point. I had a call the other day from a tee shirt company in California looking for someone to write Inspirational quotes for them on Instagram. You wouldn’t think that an actual job existed for that, but it definitely does.
Those words we read every day on Instagram and social media and your favorite products and Big Pharma ads don’t just come out of nowhere. Someone actually gets paid to write them.
This could be you.
Content marketing and content creation has exploded in the last few years. According to analysts from Technavio, the industry is projected to be worth $412.88 billion in 2021.
Did you know that some companies and brands pay rates of over $1,000 per hour for short sayings and original quotes like ones you read every day? It almost seems unbelievable.
However, a woman named Laura Belgray who is the owner of talkingshrimp charges over $1,000 per hour.
Update! She now charges $1,450 per hour! Whaaat?
Now keep in mind that Laura has built up a business that has earned her a stellar reputation allowing her to command those rates from top firms.
Even if you don’t earn her rates, the fact is that major companies and corporations are PAYING big money for great copy and content that catches attention and vibes with their audience.
Read on to learn how you can make money as a freelance writer or content creator to grow a successful business and charge clients’ top rates to write quotes or build content on Instagram and other social media channels.
More and more businesses and companies are using Instagram and other social media to reinforce their brands across the globe.
They need words that captivate, persuade and sell — and let’s face it, writing is hard.
Most people need help writing catchy phrases, witty sayings and motivational quotes, and many companies will pay big money for it.
That’s where the power of compelling copywriting comes in.
How AI Helps Content Creators Generate Big Profits in 2023
Don’t wait for permission to write quotes
Of course, anyone can publish quotes, develop content or be a ghostwriter these days especially with top writing tools.
People do it all the time on Amazon and on ibooks and other digital platforms and make a small bundle every single month!
One of the great things about freelance writing is that if you love to write, you can start doing so professionally — without permission, an agent, a book deal, a publisher, or working your way up a corporate ladder.
Back in the day it would take years of effort and success to accumulate a portfolio of high-quality copy or print ads, but as a freelance online writer you can create your own work easily even in bulk.
Hate to write? With AI writing tools like WriteSonic you don’t even need to be a writer these days to create engaging optimized content! In over 24 languages!

I am an inspirational quote writer and I need guidence on how to start posting them and earning money.
The very first thing you need to do is start building your reputation in your niche. Once you do this, start posting testimonials of your amazing work from your clients who have received results from your work on your stunning website showcasing your portfolio of all your work and highlighting it on social media. Then you are able to charge a substantial amount. As stated in the post – the more demand you build for yourself the more you can charge. It takes effort, time and diligence but it does happen if you stick with it and don’t give up! Best of luck!

Promote the heck out of it and grow! Persistent and promote similar to a blog site: https://socialbuzzhive.com/blog/2021/03/09/ultimate-list-post-to-promote-your-blog-to-get-more-traffic
Im a beginner at writing quotes. I have recently made an original quote of my own, but I want to create more! has someone that was a beginner, ever get payed $900 p/h? how do I stop people from stealing my quotes? what do I need to do to get the attention, to get payed this amount? when was the last beginner that made money? how will I get payed? How does the quotes for money exchange work, like does the quote need to be popular? what not to do when creating a quote, like copying? what is the effective way to get hired as a writer of quotes? I have many more questions.
this intrigues me and I feel that It is possible for myself to write originals with the proper mentor.
If you have the original quotes with the date created and date modified embedded in them, you can prove plagiarism should somebody steal your words and publish them as their own.
There are copyright laws but remember ideas can’t be copyrighted. However the expression of your idea can be.
To get the attention your quotes deserve takes time. Did you read the post itself? You must build up your reputation in order to command that type of price. First things, first. Build up your website or blog, build your reputation, build your audience, study the experts, never stop learning, distinguish yourself among others. Be an original among copies and you’ll be the name on everybody’s lips. But do remember that nothing happens overnight. There are exceptions of course but not typically. Andy Warhol didn’t sell his art for millions the first day he started painting Campbell soup cans. Keep at it and never give up is my main piece of advice and build your presence online so others can actually find you. Be everywhere! Keep writing!
