How to Make Money Through Writing and Learning How To Teach

How to Make Money Writing

There are several ways that you can make money online. You can create content that people need and will purchase or you can create a informational programme that will teach people something that they want to learn. I have been working on a little bit of both this week.

#1 – I Created Some Halloween PLR Articles for Sale

This week I added two new article packs to my website The PLR Boutique. The first pack is all about Disney’s Frozen Halloween costumes and the second pack covers Halloween costumes that are inspired by popular television programmes.

I decided to put together a slide-show and a youtube video to get more exposure to the site. The slide-show is pretty basic as you can not use copyrighted images without permission or payment.

Take a look at my efforts. I hope to add a few more slide-shows and videos and to improve the production values. But so far so good.

She has created 7 different List Building Reports that provide guidance on how to build up a subscriber list.

#3 – I am Learning How To Create a Coaching Programme

I recently purchased a training programme course that teaches you how to put together your own coaching programme so that you can cater to the needs of your audience. I was a little bit wary (still am) about putting together a training course because I do not feel that I know anything worth teaching.

Then a couple of kind souls reminded me that I have achieved a few things that other people might like a tutorial on. Things like:

  • Setting up a blog
  • Writing and publishing short books on Amazon
  • Writing & selling PLR articles
  • Putting together simple slide-shows
  • Putting together simple Youtube videos
  • Creating images using Picmonkey – like the one above
  • Making money with the Amazon affiliate programme

These are all ideas that I could use to create different coaching / tutorial products. I need to do a little research to find out if people would like this sort of thing and if people would be willing to pay for this type of coaching programme. It is going to be fun to find out.

Coming Up

I hope to have another set of ready made articles to put up for sale on my site. It is all written. I just need to edit the articles, package them and add the payment links. If I have time, I might try and do another slide-show and video too.  :)

Have Your Say: How is your own listing building activity going? Could any of Tiffany’s products help you? Would any of the suggestions for tutorials be of interest to you? I would love for you to share your thoughts and suggestions in the comments section below.

Making Money, Building Lists and Getting Reviews

Making Money Building Lists

Making Money online and offline doing the things that you want has got to be the best way to get the life of your dreams right? Well that’s what I am striving for.

It is now more important than ever to ramp up my money making efforts. Last week, there were rumblings at my workplace. The company has been sold and it looks like there will not be enough hours for all the staff. That means those on casual contracts (like me), could see their hours reduced to an insufficient amount. So I need to be more determined about getting my own stuff working.

My Money Making Efforts – Online

I am working away at building up content for my PLR store, The PLR Boutique. People are purchasing articles, which is great.

I need to ramp up my work here so that I can increase my earnings. Today I have released a new article pack for the Halloween niche market. I hope that sales go well.

Diary of a Summer Camp Counsellor – Kindle Book Offer & Meet Two Great Bloggers

Free Book Offer

Last month I took part in the Book Blog Train, where I was able to advertise the fact that I was giving away free copies of two of my books.

Well today I am doing something a little similar. This journey is called The Blog Hop. This is where you are invited by a fellow writer / blogger to write a post that answers four questions about the writing process. You then link to 2 or 3 other writers who will then give their answers to those questions and then link to other writers and so on and so forth.

Well the lovely Patti Stafford asked me to take part in this blog hop. My first reaction was to say – “No Way – I am not a writer!” This could be somewhat disputed since I have published a few short books available on Amazon and I write and sell articles. It’s just that I don’t think of myself as a writer. Weird right?

Anyway, once I calmed down and took a deep cleansing breath, I accepted the invitation and here I am.

First Things First – My Free Book Offer

Diary of a Summer Camp Counsellor - Working at an American Summer Camp - Victoria VirgoIn my last post, I wrote about the book I published called Diary of a Summer Camp Counsellor – Working at an American Summer Camp.

My Memories of Working as a Summer Camp Counsellor in America

10 Reasons To Work as a Summer Camp Counsellor in America – Victoria Virgo

Way back when mobile phones were toys for the rich and for the city boys, I went to work at a Summer camp in America. I kept a daily diary while I was there because I didn’t want to forget the experience. I finally got round to typing up the thing, getting a kindle book cover made and I uploaded it to Amazon.

My Summer Camp Diary is Now a Book

Diary of a Summer Camp Counsellor - Working at an American Summer Camp - Victoria VirgoThe book is  Diary of a Summer Camp Counsellor – Working at an American Summer Camp. It is a few years now and the kids that I looked after most probably all have their own kids now. Maybe they are even sending their children to the same camp that they used to see as their Summer home every July and August.

I went to a fairly well to do summer camp. I knew from the get go that I did not want to be living in a tent, or have to use some sort of primitive looking outside toilet. No, I was going to work at a camp but I wanted a proper bed, a room with doors and windows, an inside toilet and hot and cold running water.I am happy to say that I found such a camp, situated just outside New York.
