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 the write words help them to sell their products. They pay big money to the right people to create the right words to elicit 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 and business ads don’t just come out of nowhere. Someone actually gets paid to write them.

This could be you.

Content marketing materials and content creation has exploded recently.

According to analysts from Technavio, the industry is projected to be worth OVER $400 billion in 2027!

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, there’s a woman named Laura Belgray who is the owner of talkingshrimp who charges over $1,000 per hour to her clientele.

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 extraordinary rates from top firms.

Naturally if you’re just starting out you won’t command her rates, but a consistent and professional online presence and great reviews will get you there!

The fact is that major companies and corporations are shelling out big money for compelling copy and content that catches attention and vibes with their brand and 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, their other social media channels and their website copy.

Don’t wait for permission to write quotes

Of course, anyone can publish quotes, develop content or even be a ghostwriter these days especially with top writing tools.

People do it all the time on platforms like Amazon on ibooks and other digital platforms and make a consistent 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.

It’s also flexible, provides a steady income and you can create on your own schedule.

Back in the day it would take years of effort and success to accumulate a portfolio of high-quality copy, quotes or print ads, but as a freelance online writer you can create your own work easily even in bulk.

But you hate to write? With AI writing tools like WriteSonic and others you don’t even need to be a gifted writer these days to create engaging optimized content!
