Are you a professional writer? If so, how many articles do you write on a weekly basis? If you are like many other professional writers, there is a good chance that your answer may be hundreds of articles. Out of those articles, no matter how large or small your number is, how many of your articles are similar in nature? If you are also like many other professional writers in this aspect, your answer might be not many. Unfortunately, many writers mistakenly believe that once they create an article they should move onto other articles or other opportunities. In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. If you play your cards right, you should be able to capitalize on one of your articles, in a number of different ways.
When it comes to making as much money as you can with one article, there are a number of important factors that must first be taken into consideration. For instance, are you writing your articles for someone else, a client? If so, did you or are you giving them full rights to your content? If that is the case, you entered a legal binding contract; however, there are still a number of ways that you can take that article and continue to profit from it. You can do this by changing your content, so that it is slightly different, but enough to notice. Simply by changing your sentences, which can involve simply rearranging or adding in new words, you can create new content, although it is still the same. This will effectively circumvent any copyright issues that you may otherwise face.
If you are not developing articles for a client, but rather developing them for your own use or if you plan on selling them later, you can still capitalize on your articles in different ways. When selling content that you developed yourself, on your own, you will want to refrain from giving the buyer full rights. This is often referred to as non-exclusive rights. When giving a buyer non-exclusive rights, you stay the legal owner of the content. Essentially, this means that you can resell your article multiple times, without ever having to change a single word. Selling your articles with non-exclusive rights is one of the easiest and fastest ways to make the most money.
In addition to keeping your articles as articles, there are other ways that you can capitalize from your content. In today’s society, many readers are now turning to the internet or their computer, instead of printed books. This has, essentially, increased the popularity of e-books. Have you ever written an e-book before? If not, it is important that you know that most e-books are simply a collection of articles, just formatted differently. If you have a collection of articles, that all cover the same topic or ones that are related in one way or another, you may be able to turn your articles into an e-book. E-books are nice because they are sold like traditional, printed books. The same material can be sold to thousands or even millions of readers. Turning your articles into an interesting e-book could be a very profitable business venture for you.
Although turning a collection of your articles into an e-book is a profitable business venture, it is not the only one that you could profit from. Over the past few years, millions of internet users have used the internet to learn something new. Whether it be how to successfully home school their children or work from home as a medical transcriber, many are turning to the internet for more information. If you wrote a collection of articles that could be used as learning resources or how-to guides, you may want to examine online mini-courses, which are also commonly referred to as e-courses. When using your articles to create a miniature e-course, there are a number of different ways that you can make money. You can sell your e-course material to another individuals or company, offer the materials free of charge and make money from advertising, or you can charge internet users a small fee for accessing your information; the decision is yours to make.
