Make a Living Writing
Technology has changed a variety of ways in which various people in different corners of the world try to
tertiary education, I had hoped to get a job in one of the many companies and corporate institutions that seek to hire fresh graduates. I visited several institutions seeking employment and sent several job request applications to these companies hoping to secure placement in at least one of them.
However, time went by without any of them responding to my request until I almost gave in on the job search. Luckily, I had made many friends during that time and I decided to make close association with them. I knew some of them who had better connections than mine and who had opted to pursue different career lines other than my career line of growing through a certain career path in a company to reach managerial level, which I had hoped to gain once I settled and worked in a particular company.
A Career in Online Writing
I therefore visited a friend of mine who had started an online writing bureau that specifically dealt with advertising and promoting of clients’ products through social networks and creating blogs for them. He coached me on the content required and other nutty-gritty’s that are involved in the process. I started by using his blog site to write promotional materials about the products of his client of which he could pay me for my work. I continued with the practice for a few months and I was able to write competent material that was admired by himself and his clients. It is ten that I decided to approach him with a request for him to help me create my own blog site since I had already known how to link up with potential clients.
I started my own blog site which concentrated on writing about tours and travel. My articles focused on advertising online customers who are planning on traveling to various countries on the best areas and places where they can find the best services that they need during their stay in such countries. Many people will at many times wish to travel to a particular country of their preference but they may not have the information about the country itself, or where to settle and visit the many destinations, for instance, hotels and national parks. I therefore wrote on the uniqueness of different countries and gave directions on the hotels, beaches, tourist attractions and landmark sites that are interesting to visit and offer a sneak peek into their history.
I also created platform in my blog site where online customers may engage with me through email in case they needed more information about something or make queries on particular sites that I could not have captured.
The Challenges and Benefits involved in Working Remotely
It was quite difficult at first as the blog site was new hence receiving very minimal viewing from the online customers. However, I committed to writing exemplary articles on personal experiences at various destinations around the world that I had visited. Within no time, many people started reading, appreciating and liking my blog site’s content with several of them seeking to know more about the places. The queries grew day by day to an extent that I could not respond to the daily traffic generated by them.
I therefore decided to hire a few more personnel to assist me in creating more content and respond to the numerous queries that flowed day in day out. This enabled me to link up several other sites and vocational places that people could access and get the information that they require in order to visit or tour. The online customers also grew to become a major source of my writing material as they would share their experiences via email with me which I could use to feed my blog with.
I also grew fond of writing for online customers as it gave me new experiences every day and enabled me to gather a lot of information about the tourism industry which is a key income generating industry to individuals, companies and to the various countries at large. Online customers who are seeking to travel have nothing to worry about when planning their visitation since acquiring such information has been made easy by people like me who have written so much about the same and which can acquired by simply going online and accessing that information.
