What does money, publishing and writers have anything to do with the process of writing?
The truth on the Internet is that each writer out there wants to earn income with their blogs and their websites. They want to make a ‘name’ for themselves but have no idea how to go about this. As much as people like to say that there is an wonderful and easy way to do this, there is not. To create a great websites a person has to write and publish a book to eventually earn some income, and that part of life will not change.
Personally, I write a blog post, and publish it in hopes that someone will find what I wrote interesting enough that they will go out and buy my book. Or one of my books. I lead a team and create something better by publishing more books and adding to the websites I have. In short, I’m starting to maintain a more professional blog.
Don’t even start on the whole branding idea.
A lot of people talk about branding, and at its most basic, it’s just making yourself known to other writers, and readers without having to work with as hard as you would otherwise. For example, my name, Rebecca A Emrich is a brand. It is who I am as a writer, people will search for this name to find this website or one of my books. The same holds true with Living a Life of Writing and other websites I help run.
The point of a brand, is to help a company or a business in the long term, a brand can make a impact to a larger number of people, and create an effect of having more people know about the website. To make an impact people have to be familiar with you and your company or website, and and then they need to spread the information by word of mouth. The challenge is being a writer and also a business, along with having a personal life. Becoming an Internet millionaire is not in the cards for everyone, especially those who do not want to brand themselves. This is not saying everyone should take this path, but the ideas are all the same. Money, publishing and writers go hand in hand with branding.
What about social media and money that way?
|Keys to success|
As much as I might want to be on all of the social networking sites, my writing, and my websites need to come first. These sites bring my websites traffic and there is no doubt that I might be able to do a lot more with these accounts, except for the fact I have a lot of writing to do, on my books and on my blogs.
However, this being said, money doesn’t come directly from what I do on social media, it comes via the traffic I get when people I have as followers share my websites. Most the the money which a writer earns is not through their blogs but the products they sell: webinars, books, and other products.
