How much do you know about self-publishing and writing?
Self-publishing is like a puzzle, you must fit the correct pieces together to form the complete picture. In other words, you must put the correct steps in place to produce an award-winning book or a best seller, if that’s what you’re after. Sometimes, some people are just after the title ‘Published’ while others are after the title ‘New York Times Bestseller’. No matter what you’re after, if your passion is writing and telling stories, you can never truly go wrong, within limits.
So where am I going with this? Well, I wanted to make sure that authors and writers are informed of what opportunities are available to them as writers and a lot of the time publishing is one of them. If you’re quite familiar with it, I’d like to remind you. Or, if you’re too familiar with it, you’re welcome to exit out of this page. So, you won’t lose time and I won’t waste it.
If you chose to stay, let me remind you, that self-publishing is the act of publishing any form of material on the internet for others to consume. But what about the opportunities to writers, aside from publishing? What about turning your writing into a lucrative business and I don’t mean by producing author services such as editing, proofreading and what not, at least 90% of the internet is doing that, and your chances of getting someone to give you a job is very slim. As harsh as that sounds, you’re competing with businesses that have been in the game for years and you’re competing with much bigger businesses, so you have understand where I’m coming from. However, just because their big and have a longer history it doesn’t mean that you can’t pursue that route. You’ll just have to think creatively and dedicate yourself to excellent customer service.
To think creatively for example; say you’re a writer and your wanting to open a business. What would that look like? Would it be publishing your own books like JK Rowling or would it look like a copywriting business where you write advertisements or public material for other businesses? Thinking about what you can offer to the market is what makes you successful. If you can answer that question, then you’re on your way. If you can’t, then try and revise why you want to be a writer and what makes you different?
For starters, your style of writing and tone is different and can work perfectly in certain genres but not in others. Your story has never been told before and that makes it different. If you need help with that, our consultations are available where we can provide advice on where you can begin and how you can go about it. If you don't wish for a consultation, there are plenty of opportunities for writers such as: blogging and writing articles but I'm not going to go on about this as the internet is filled with tons of information on this topic and find what works for you because only you know what works for you.
