Home Business Ideas - Website Content Writer
Website Content (or copy) writers are in growing demand! If you have basic writing, spelling, and grammar skills, then you may already have the capabilities of becoming a web content writer.
The most critical skill that a good web content writer has is the ability to write compelling website content that is going to sell your writing client's products or services. That's the whole point of outsourcing for this service. The client wants well-written, sellable content that is going to make them money.
Also, in order to be a successful website content writer, you will need to write with the site owner's target market as well as the search engines in mind. You will need to incorporate keywords that relate to the site you are writing for. The webmaster will most likely include specific keywords with their instructions.
If you have actively been involved in article marketing, press release writing, blogging, or all the above, then taking that first step to becoming a website content writer will be that much easier for you.
Once you have a few clients under your belt, then it will be time to create a professional (fee hosted) website to help promote your services, if you haven't done so already. There is little investment involved in getting started with this type of home business. Just the cost of your website hosting, domain name and your Internet service provider. However, there will have to be a considerable amount of time invested in both your writing and your website content. You will need to add plenty of examples of your writing from your portfolio.
Happy clients will also be willing to give you glowing testimonials which you can feature on your website as well! Sometimes its worth it in the beginning to take on jobs for less pay then you'd like if you think its feasible you'll gleam a testimonial (or a referral!) from the project.
If you thoroughly enjoy writing articles and blog posts, then you will love being a web content writer. With time and doing any required research for each piece of writing, you can make this dream job a reality.

The Beginner's Guide To Freelance Writing
Okay. So you’ve figured out that you would like to write for magazines, newspapers, and e-zines. Unfortunately, so have about eight gazillion other people on this planet. Therefore, you have to stand out from the crowd. You have to sparkle. How do you do this? Simple. It all starts with “The Big Idea.” The first secret you must learn in this funny business is that you don’t actually have to write the whole article to get a job.
