Everything I know about publishing and marketing my work.
This won’t be the first article I’ve published on how to make money publishing on Triond, but it will be the completed version. As I have learned the marketing techniques, I have tried to share them, as I think we all should. As I learn more, I share more. So here, fellow writers, is the final chapter.
First, I am not the most successful publisher on triond by any means. I could get closer than I am now, but I’m simply not willing to commit the necessary amount of time required to reach that plateau. Without that, however, I average between 2,500 and 5,000 hits per day, and will break $200.00 this month. And I am neither an exceptional writer or promoter. I have simply spent the last several months listening, talking, and experimenting. Virtually none of what you find here will be ideas I originated… but rather things I have picked up from fellow Trionders. So here, my fellow writers, is the bulk of my knowledge on the subject of marketing your Triond works. May it serve you well.
This is where it all starts and ends. There are a few hacks who will publish garbage and try to market it, but in the long run, garbage doesn’t sell. And the pennies at Triond aren’t near enough that publishing mass amounts of garbage (which, I assure you, people try as well) will prove worthwhile. You don’t need to be Hemmingway, but you do need to at least have a bit of writing capability. Try to stay within your areas of comfort. If you are a sports fan, write about sports. If you fancy yourself a poet, write poems. (although you will find that poetry is even less lucrative than general publishing.)
Informative articles tend to do well, if they are well written, and, in fact, informative. Don’t write an article about the top 10 soaps you prefer, because no one cares. When you find a subject, research it. Make sure before you even begin writing that you are familiar with the information you wish to share.
You need to publish a quality product, so take the 5 minutes to use spell check and check your punctuation. Use photos and such to accentuate your presentation… you want your article to be as professional as possible.
