How To Make $500+ Monthly Writing Poems

How To Make $500+ Monthly Writing Poems

Poems are a piece of writing in which the expression of feelings and ideas is given intensity by particular attention to diction (sometimes involving rhyme), rhythm, and imagery.
They are enjoyed by everyone, especially when they have the lines that touch the soul, either in pains, or in love. Which ever way, anything you can do now can fetch you some money online. I remember when I published an article on how you can start making $1,000+ monthly writing people's biographies [see it here], a friend read it and was like, 'wow...I never knew making money online was this easy'!

Some of my stories that have sold well on Okada Books and my blogs were very short, but I knew what the market needed. I recently uploaded my book to Amazon Kindle, only to discover that Nigerians couldn't purchase any Kindle Books. So bad, if I can't sell to Nigerians, which other countries do I have good audience?
I know Ghanaian read my blogs, Kenyans, Americans, Canadians, Indians and so  many other countries, but they are not upto my Nigerian audience.
This means that Amazon is a no-no for Nigerian publishers, except you do what I will talk about in the next few lines.

How To Make Money Online Writing Poems

If you want to make money online from poetry, you have to first build your fan base. You will not go too far online in this age if you don't have an active Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and/or Instagram account. This is because your fans will feel you more if they happen to meet you on the social media.
Moreover, you will use it as a platform for announcing your new releases and of course, pushing the old ones to newer fans.
There are so many ways to make money from your poems such as:

- Blogging

Have you thought about it? You can create a blog with as little as $39 and begin to publish your poems there. In less than 3 months of blogging, you can begin to turn in as much as $500.Of course, it is not magic, you will have to work really hard. You can also encourage other writers to submit their own poems for free exposure. Those poets will be grateful and in turn, share their poems to their social media fans and friends to read. By doing that, you will begin to get more free and targeted audience which means more money.
About making money from the blog, you can use ad networks, affiliate marketing, selling of your eBooks and many other ways to monetize it. If you can write well but can't create a blog, you can contact me for one now.

- Selling of your poems

If you have a good followership, you can start selling your own poems to your audience. This is one of the major reasons why you need to have an active Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other social media account and/or blog.
By constantly publishing your poems and write-ups there, you will be doing yourself the good of free promotions. About platforms on where to sell it, if you are from Nigeria or most other African countries, I suggest Sellfy. This is because most African countries can't purchase Kindle books thereby making you unable to sell to your closest fans.

- Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest ways to start making $400+ monthly even as a student. One of the major advantages is that you do not need to sell your own products, just refer people to purchase other people's own and make your own money.
It will help you very well especially if you are not yet famous as a writer. You can refer people to purchase releases from established writers and make money from that. If you are good in writing reviews, it will be a credit to you too.
