I write a lot of web content, from landing pages to sales copy, squeeze pages to articles with back links in the resource box. All the jargon of the online writer! So, what’s a landing page? That is the Home page or page you want people to ‘land’ on when they surf into your web site or blog. A squeeze page is a page where you squeeze the visitor to visit a page where they can take some action, such as buy something from you. Articles with back links add to your ‘link juice’ and help your site ranking and on and on it goes. Jargon and tricks, traps and so much to learn and take on board. Becoming an eWriter is a learning curve and at first it is a very steep one. As you progress you probably realise you don’t need to knwo everything, just where to find the people who do know the bits you don’t.
The good thing is that there are plenty of them out there. People who can’t write two words one after the other and have them make sense let alone be spelt correctly. Yet they know all the tech stuff you can;t get your head around. Perfect! For the first six months of my career as an eWriter I had 100% control of everything and I sold maybe five copies of my first eBook. Then I partnered up with a back end techno geek type and the rest is history. I had to share half my sales but then I more than doubled them so I was well infront. You have to know what you don’t know and that when it lands in front of you, don’t get so greedy you knock it back because you fear losing control or having to share the royalties.
50% of something is worth a lot more than 100% of nothing!
After a change of web geek partner I settled down with my current genius and we are into producing web content in a big way. He tells me the words that everybody will pay for and I write the web site content to suit.
Just to give you an idea of the range of web sites I write for, here are our Philippines Network sites which are currently up for sale and under negotiation:
These URLs belong to the SWP (Streetwise Philippines) business and will be sold off as a package for 10x average monthly income at $111,000.
SWP includes the web sites and blogs as well as 8 eBooks and several free guides (used as opt in value added items) and over 3,500 members on our sales list. All figures are verifiable.
These web sites are for sale individually and in niche/topic bundles for a quick sale. We are open to a firm offer to buy now rather than put to auction.

I have 4,000 members of two Yahoo Groups, many of whom live in the Philippines and are always keen to find income stream opportunities which these web sites offer. We will be marketing to them but we are also amenable to providing the members email lists to a major buyer in case they wish to on sell the sites.
