Making Cash On The Web is a serious attempt to compile useful information about making money on the internet. It is a combination of things that I have learned myself, as well as information culled from other sources. It is NOT about get rich quick schemes, or wierd marketing programs. I am not going to sell you anything.
I made my living for several years as a professional writer. Here are a few bits of advice on writing content:
1) Keep your paragraphs short. Forget the advice that your English teacher gave you about having five sentences per paragraph. Three is more than enough.
2) Keep your sentences short. You can break the rules of grammar. Really. (See? I just broke a rule right there.)
All you have to worry about is whether your writing communicates your ideas or gets in the way of them.
3) Write conversationally. When I was breaking in young reporters, they often would tell me “I know what to say, I just don’t know how to say it.”
So I’d ask them to tell me what they know And they’d explain it to me verbally in clear, concise language.
Then I’d say “Now go and write down exactly what you just told me. Exactly.”
That’s when they got it. The best writers write as though they are talking to an audience.
Remember, content is what makes people come to your site. Content will make them click on your ads. Content makes you money.
