Where to find additional information about the category
After reading this book, you can make an educated decision about the next steps in your writing career.
The first chapter of Martin’s book details a category where total newcomers can expect to earn well over $50,000 a year. The demand in this will continue to explode in the next 10 years.
But Martin also reveals “stealth” categories where writers are not called writers … but write all day.
Here’s the beauty of becoming a professional writer: you can earn money from your passion. If you’re crazy about poker, you can write about poker. Or if your passion is quilting, you can write books, blogs, articles, and other content … and earn money writing about your hobby.
With the world’s demand for information increasing, NOW is the time to become a professional writer. The Internet currently serves up 14 BILLION pages. These pages must have words written by writers.
It gets even better …
Professional writing provides flexibility. You can work at home, giving you a full-time job without the commute. Or you can freelance for companies around the world while you sit in a coffee shop sipping espresso drinks. Or you can start a career with a major corporation … with all the benefits and perks.
And professional writing can help you reach your financial goals. Martin describes 39 categories with the potential for annual income well over $100,000 … and 17 with the potential for annual income over $1 million.
That’s right … very quietly, writers around the world are earning more than lawyers, doctors, and high-level executives. However, certain categories provide routinely low pay and Martin helps you avoid these areas.
And if you’re not convinced of the ever-growing need for writers, take a look at this site. That’s right … right here on Amazon, you’ll find authors earning tens of thousands. And companies pay writers for book and product descriptions. Writing for retail websites is just ONE category with a whopping demand.
So the opportunities for writers are stronger than ever … get this book now to discover more about these opportunities. Before you know it, you’ll be earning money as a professional writer. Click the “buy now” button or give the book as a gift. Or add it to your wish list.
And welcome to the world of professional writing.
And for what it's worth (not much) it's my 16th book. You can see the full list here.
