Re: $220.00 Weekend for the Boz while I typed my fingers off
Thanks for bringing the short report to light. Also a great way to make money offline.
I like the short report route and have been doing that for 7 years now. But not everyone knows how to get the ideas and then write a quick short report on that idea. I'm going to show you one way right now.
First this is not the only way and I do not mean that you copy anyone elses work. Just use this method for a starter and then put it in your own words.
1. Go to ezinearticles . com and put "10 tips" in the search box. This will bring up hundreds of articles on all types of subjects. Pick one topic that interests you and copy some of the main part of each tip back to a note pad. If you can find more then one article on ezine then use tips from each.
2. You can then title your report to whatever number of tips you want to use or use a catch title.... Like "6 tips for telephone success" "Who else want to have success on the phone"
3. If you know the subject very well then all you have to do is reword the tips you copied and add a short paragraph under each tip. If not then put the main part into Google and search on that phrase to get ideas for your copy.
Like this: tips #4 "Don't speak as much as you listen"
Listen to the caller until they are done talking. Don't break into their end of the conversation as soon as they stop speaking. They may just be coming up for air and have more to say. If they are really done talking the pause will give you some time to think about what you are going to say in your reply.
I have just written over 50 words for tip # 4. If I have 10 tips and wrote a paragraph for each like the above I would have a 500 word article. If I wrote 2 paragraphs for each tip I would have a 1,000 word article.
If I add an opening and closing then I would have about a 1,500 to 2,000 word short report that could sell for $5 to $10. The opening is just you telling them "what" you are going to show them in the following tips and the closing is just you reviewing "what" you just told them.
Once you get the hang of this method, you can write a paragraph, in a couple of minutes. So your report should take no more then an hour or two if you are just learning.
If you write for 10 hours (does not have to be all at once) you can produce from 5 to 10 reports. If you sell only ONE a week of each report for $10 that's from $50 to $100 a week. But it gets better. Remember that Automatic Product Vending Gordon talked about? If you write 10 reports this week and ten reports next week then you will have $400 to $800 coming in per month. Month after month.
This is an easy method to make money. Look, I just wrote over 600 words just with this post in a few minutes.
If anyone has any question about this method just post them here or email me or PM me and I will try to help, ok?
Best of success,
