The earning will be a minimum of 50k per month and a maximum of the sky’s limit in simple words.
Are you wondering by reading this amount? Don’t wonder; it’s reachable.
So, this time may be a question that hits your mind.
7 secrets to planning your earning
Here is the answer.
1. Set up your earning goal
First, you have to set a goal for how much you want to earn from writing. It will be more clear to you if I give you a real example.
Have you ever got out from home without knowing where you want to go?
Most probably not. Before getting out of your house, you know where you want to go.
Setting an earning goal is exactly like that. So you have to scratch an amount in your mind to earn from your profession.
Here are the suggestions from my side to you what you have to consider while setting your goal:
- ● Consider your all over living expenses
- ● home rent
- ● food cost
- ● Child’s educational expenses
- ● Medical expenses,
- ● Entertainment expenses
- ● Vacation
- ● Sickness etc.
After considering all these things, you may need at least 50K per month. It may vary depending on your lifestyle, living area, and family members.
Now, I am showing you how you can reach this 50k per month earning from content writing.
In this step, you should make a plan on how to earn this 50k per month. Let’s break down a simple strategy for your easier, better, and faster understanding.
You know there are 30 days in a month. Suppose you are planning to work 25 days, and for the remaining 5 days, you won’t work. Then divide this 50k by 25 days.
● 50000/25= 2000
That means you have to earn Tk. 2000 per day.
Now, you know there are 24 hours a day, and you want to work 8 hours a day. So divide these 2000 by 8.
● 2000/8= 250tk per hour.
So now calculate how much time do you need to write a thousand words article. Depending on that, try to figure out how much you should charge per K words to fulfill your targeted 250tk per hour.
Then when you negotiate with your clients, keep in mind those things.
It’s not as complicated as you think.
3. Properly manage and execute your time
From the freelance content writing industry’s perspective, to earn your expected amount per hour, you have to use your time correctly, wisely, accurately, and carefully. Otherwise, it’ll be tough for you to reach your desired amount of earnings.
Once you fail to reach your target, it will demotivate you and create a lack of confidence in your writing mastery. So from the very beginning, be careful about it.
Instantly don’t take any decision when time is money for you. Here I can mention some of the time-wasting areas where I wasted time before thinking about it wisely. I think you also do it. Like
- ● I used to go to a far shopping mall to buy some regular outfits to save some money but don’t think about wastage of time.
- ● I was checking emails many times a day instead of once.
- ● I was checking Facebook notifications frequently.
- ● I didn’t make a to-do list. That is why I did less important tasks earlier and kept more important tasks for performing later. As a result, I couldn’t complete the vital tasks at the end of the day and remain one step back.
- ● I was chatting with friends for unlimited time without doing my work and so many things.
I have mentioned some of the examples of the time-wasting zone. You have to be cautious about the tap of these time wastage things.
4. Always be organized
Proper management and organization are very crucial to develop your disciplined life. You must keep an efficient and necessary filling system.
If you organize all of your important papers, documents, research works, then you can easily and quickly locate all of the things when you need them. And you can concentrate on your writing works.
On the other hand, an properly organized working environment gives you mental peace and doesn’t distract you from your projected work. So the proper organization only has positive views without negativity.
So why not you follow this?
5. Search big fish clients
You have to search for big fish clients to reach your bigger target because they have enough budget and can offer you maximum remuneration.
Initially, hang with small clients, but as time passes, you gather experience and be a master of content writing. Besides doing small clients’ works, searched for new big-budgeted projects from big fish clients.
You can use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter to search for new clients. Post these platforms by showcasing your creativity, writing skills, and the rules you follow to make content lucrative.
Always keep opening your door for new clients so that they can knock on your door when they need you. Always remember one thing, right people are watching your social media activities. So they will pick you at the right time. Just keep patience to come at the right time.
6. Increase your typing speed
As you are a writer, a good typing speed is a plus point for you, and a slow typing speed is a relatively negative point. Try to keep your typing speed at least 30-35 words per minute so that you can write a thousand words article within 40 minutes.
But, still, remember all the words you are typing are not worthy. Even you have to type almost 2000 words for writing meaningful, accurate, and engaging 1000 words. That means you will need 80 minutes to write a meaningful 1000 words article.
Besides, you have to invest your time researching, content formatting, editing, and so many other things.
By calculating, you find it takes almost 3-3.5 hours to write a thousand words. And your targeted amount is 250tk per hour.
So you have to charge 875tk per K word. But you have to aim for more money.
The reason is you can never guarantee that every working hour you can earn 250tk of the 25 days in the month. Sometimes it may go under the range, and sometimes it may go above the range (when you are lucky).
So you have to target as much as you can whenever you work. And keep track of every single time’s activity and monetize your every minute.
7. Create multiple sources of earning
If you keep this profession as a full-time writer, you have to work with multiple clients and create several income sources. As a result, you don’t have to face any financial crisis if anyone cheats you or doesn’t give your payment on time.
Some of the mentionable earning streams are
- ● Writing content for websites.
- ● I am writing a product description for an eCommerce business.
- ● Writing about us page and service page of the website’s users design.
- ● Writing emails for free email newsletters.
- ● Writing free downloadable eBooks for clients
- ● Writing YouTube scripts etc.
What I wrote till now all the information is related to the freelance content writer.
Now, have a look at the other writers, especially the book authors.
How much a fiction or nonfiction book author earns from writing a book
Making money from writing books is slightly different from freelance content writing. As a freelance writer, you can charge per K words or hourly. But, as a book author, you can’t charge per K words. This time your earnings depend on some book publishing-related factors. For example
- ● Which type of books do you write?
- ● What is the quality of your books?
- ● How do you publish your book? (Self-publishing or taking help from publishers to publish your book)
- ● What is your book price?
- ● How many copies your book sold?
- ● Which medium do you publish your books? (Printing media or digital media like e-book) and so many things.
As your earning depends on those things as a book author, that’s why it’s hard to earn your entire livelihood from this profession.
The positive thing about book writing is that once you can achieve popularity as a writer among the mass people, you can earn a lucrative amount by writing books.
Even you can live a luxurious life in this profession.
Still, it takes time, and your luck must favor you unless it’s pretty tough to sustain this book writing sector.
