To Hand Write or Keyboard Write, That Is The Question

A while ago I was writing articles and publishing them online but I felt that they weren’t as good as they should be and I really wasn’t enjoying it.

Whenever I write, I always write outlines by hand, and for speed, I decided to write the articles on the keyboard.

But I wasn’t happy with the results so I kept editing them, walking away, coming back, and having another go at them. Then eventually I’d upload them and say I was done.

I kept telling myself that writing straight to keyboard would eventually be quicker, and that outlining by hand was fine but I really needed to speed things up, and that once I was used to writing straight to the keyboard, I’d get quicker and more efficient.

After a few weeks though, I had to admit that working this way just didn’t work for me. I’m far more creative when I write by hand. I also realised that even though it seemed to take more time to write out everything using a pad and pencil and type it up later, it was actually faster overall, because I spent less time editing and correcting everything so much.

Also, I procrastinated less because I enjoy handwriting.

And most importantly, I realised that as long as I was writing, no matter which way I do it, I’m still moving forward.

I also have a great system of how I write and publish, which makes things even easier as well as fast.

So if you prefer to handwrite your articles, don’t think it slows you down, because in my experience, it doesn’t.

Did You Know You Can Earn Money From PLR Articles This Way?

Private Label Rights (PLR) articles are usually provided with no copyright restrictions which means you can use them any way you want - either ‘as is’ or change them or rewrite them.

But why would you want to use PLR articles?

Why not write your own?

PLR articles, if they’re good, can be used to help you earn money fast. You can use them in the usual ways, for your blog content, or sell as packs of articles, or sell them individually.

But did you know that some entrepreneurial writers are creating niche blogs out of them and then selling the blogs?

With some free blogging platforms, like Word Press, and PLR articles, people are setting up ready-made affiliate blogs monetised with programs like ClickBank, Amazon, and Google’s AdSense PPC ads.

Using the PLR articles, they add about 20-25 pages of content that they edit or add to, or change however they want to suit the site. They also add free-to-use images.

They often write the content into a free ebook to give away to attract more visitors too.

And this is all easy and quick to do because blogs are easy to update and add content to because they work from one central admin area.

Then once it’s up and running and earning money, they then ‘Flip’ (sell) the blog on sites like Flippa.

Earning money this way is something that I’ve found to be intriguing because of how simple it seems to be and how easy these sites are to sell.

So just when I thought there were no other ways to earn money from writing, here’s another that requires more consideration.

Earn More Money As An Affiliate Marketer

If you look around online, you’ll see that affiliate marketing is not only an on-going hot topic, but thousands of people are earning an incredible amount of money this way.

And because it’s so lucrative, there are even people selling ready-made affiliate niche blogs.

I’ve done my own fair share of affiliate marketing over the years and at one time I had nine niche websites all earning money through affiliate marketing.

And there’s no doubt in my mind that if I’d put all my effort into it, I could have earned a good living this way. But it wasn’t something that I wanted to devote all my time to because there was other writing that I wanted to do.

But for anyone who wants to become an affiliate marketer or wants to do more of it, setting up niche blogs, or buying those that are already set up and earning money, this can be quite a lucrative business. I’m not saying that you’ll earn a high-figure income straight away, but it is possible to make sales quickly.

What’s great about affiliate marketing, is that once you’ve set up an affiliate offer and written all your content, it can go on working and earning money for years. I’m still getting clicks and earning money from an affiliate link I used to promote a product about 10 years ago, and that’s because the product is really good and is still available. (

All it takes is to find good products with a great offer and then write blog posts, marketing articles, social media posts and emails to promote it to as many people as possible, within the right market.

And once you’ve set it all up, you can leave it to go on earning money, while you set up another one, or you can get to work on other projects.

If you want to know more, you can learn more about how Super Affiliate, Rosalind Gardner, has earned millions from affiliate marketing and teaches others how she does it.

This is a product I bought myself years ago and I still use it today.

Remote Workers: How to Stay Secure Online While Working from Home

Image from
This is a guest post from

Before the pandemic hit, the remote work industry had been growing at a fast pace. When the pandemic hit, though, a lot of businesses were forced to close down their physical offices.
For some of these people, the work still has to go on.
While those that have been in the freelance/ remote work industry for long now know how to keep themselves safe against threats online, that might not be the same for those that have been forced into the same shoes.
This is why we have come up with a piece to help you secure yourself better while working from home.
Secure your Logins
There are a series of applications that you now have to use on your home network. Most of these are sensitive work apps that you never log into outside work, but that is changing already.
The first thing to do would be beefing up the login process and protocols.
One of the ways to do so is by changing your passwords to be extra secure. For that, we recommend using an online password generator. Besides, you should also get a password manager to store all of your unique passwords. 
Finally, ensure you never use one password for multiple accounts.

Backup Your Files
As you go into work (remotely) every day, ensure you have backed your files and data up to at least the previous week. 
Since you cannot always go back into the office to get some files if you don't see them anymore, it would make sense to have a backup copy of everything that you are doing right now. In the case of a security breach, that will also ensure that you can wipe your device entirely and restore it from backup.  
We are not saying that is the only fix, but we are saying that you will be prepared for the extreme cases too.
Finally, you get the added advantage of having a backup that you can take back to work (to update your work computer with) when the pandemic is over.

Download Security Apps
The chances are that your workplace used to provide all the security apps and protocols on the internal network. Now that you are not working from there, it is up to you to get the same level of security going. 
You can do this by downloading security apps to suit your needs.
For us, we recommend that you download the best VPN and antivirus software that you can find, for starters.
The VPN will help you to encrypt your internet traffic/ data while the antivirus protects you against malware. Depending on your specific needs, you can then go seek out other security software.

Avoid Unencrypted Networks
We would have preferred this heading to be that you avoid public Wi-Fi networks, but they are not the only kinds of unencrypted networks you could come across. Sometimes, even your network might not be as safe as you think. 
The problem with unencrypted networks is how they expose you to the wrong side of the internet.
On the one hand, this could mean that you become a victim of one of those man-in-the-middle attacks. Likewise, a hacker could install different kinds of malware on your network – and this affects all the devices that you have connected to such a network.
Again, you will benefit from the VPN that we recommended up there through its encryption service.

Beware of Phishing Attacks
Since you are now working from home, most of your communication is taken online, which creates a massive opportunity for exploitation through phishing emails.
How do you know if something looks fishy? Always doublecheck any address sending you a mail before you open it at all. In the same vein, never download attachments in emails if they are from unsolicited sources. Even if the email seems to be coming from a trusted source, it doesn’t hurt you anything to scan the attachment with an antivirus software first.
The same goes for links in emails. It would be better to type the link into your browser by yourself rather than follow the email link. For all you know, it could be a spam/ phishing link.

Accessing Company Resources
It is often said that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. In this case, you don't want to be the weak link to your company's assets.
If it ever happens that you need to access anything on the company’s servers from your home, only do so via an encrypted network. We have discussed how you can do this with a VPN above.
Otherwise, you run the risk of opening a backdoor into your company's servers due to your unsecured connection. We don’t need to be the ones to tell you how much of a disaster that could mean.

Dedicate Computers
It would be wise to keep all work files on a work computer – and there alone.
The kind of sync that many of the internet apps and services we use now provide us could be a costly convenience. This is why we never recommend syncing your work email from your work computer to an everyday phone. 
Of course, doing so means that you get to access your mails and other services on-the-go, but you are also leaving one more source of entry into such accounts.
Even if you have secured the work files and accounts on the work computer, the other units that you have synced the same data with might not be as secure. 

Final Words

These might sound like a lot of changes to you, but they are only there to make your life easier and better. By the time you are done applying all these tips, you will be able to sleep better.
If you have not already started securing your remote work processes, now is the time.

Content May Be King, But Engagement Is Queen

Every online writer knows the saying that ‘content is king.’ And while that is true, it’s also more (much more) important to remember that ‘engagement is queen.’

You see, it’s no good writing articles if all anyone does is read them without engaging with what they've read, which means that what you write needs to compel them to want to act. So your content must be convincing, influential and persuasive.

So if you want to make money online as an article marketer, there are three steps you need to take to get up and running (and earning) fast.

  1. Choose a profitable niche. It’s no good choosing to write about a subject that isn’t highly profitable. If you want to make money online you need to attract buyers, not just readers. You need to know who your target audience are and what they’re looking for online.
  2. Next you need to get your niche site up and running fast. Your site doesn’t have to be great and it doesn’t even have to be pretty. To quote the great online marketer, Mike Litman, ‘you don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.’ You can always make changes later if you want to.
  3. Fill your site with compelling content. The important word here is ‘compelling.’ Your content must create engagement. It must make the reader eager to find out more once they’ve finished reading.

So what is engagement? It’s whatever the reader does next. It could be that they click a link you provide or share your article, or mention you in their article, or link to your article from their website or from their social media page.

Whatever the engagement is, it will result in more sales, more readers or more targeted buyers.

And it all starts with 3 simple steps.
