Sports are among the main interests of people all over the world. Basketball, football, tennis, baseball and soccer are just some of the most popular sports known to us. So do not be surprised if you see magazines and other publications that are written especially for sports news. These publications are in-demand among sports fanatics that want to remain updated. But if you think being into sports is just a form of pastime, think again.
If you are a sports enthusiast, there are lots of ways to make your sports knowledge profitable. For coaches, you can easily share coaching
advices and tips, drills, fitness programs, training “How to’s” and training exercises. There are even some self-declared “experts” that show some secrets to jumping higher, running faster, growing muscles and a whole lot more. Sports writing for money is indeed possible and below are some tips in doing it.
Write an e-book regarding sports
An e-book is a shorter term for “electronic book”. The use of e-books is getting popular by the minute for they cost less than the usual books, which is why they are the perfect method if you want to do sports writing for money. Some are even offered for free by some authors. All you have to do is simply write a document on any word processor and convert it into a PDF file. You get to have every profit that you make without sharing it with publishers. People are constantly looking for downloadable e-books online so you better take advantage of it.
Write your personal blog
Blogger, WordPress and Tumblr are just some of the famous blogging sites. And the best part of all is that they are free. Just write articles, share some tips and promote certain products on your blog. So how does one profit out of it? The most advisable way is to place Google AdSense or other affiliate programs in your blog. A lot of bloggers in the Internet world have earned money out of it, but the profits are not that big. However, if all of the methods are free (for instance, the placing of AdSense and the writing part can be done for no costs), you
lose practically nothing and earn something out of it.
They can be full of advice, tips, resources and articles for a certain sports topic – this is a great way of making money through sports writing. Aside from newsletters, you may even write product reviews pertaining to sports products and include your affiliate link along with the reviews. By clicking on this link, people will be redirected on the author’s personal site, thus producing more money for him. Once your newsletter grows, you can start having big businesses advertised in them. In return, these businesses will pay you for advertising them. Newsletters are great means of building your customers to whom you can promote or sell your own products.
So if you want to take on sports writing for money, it is imperative that you build a member-based site. This site should be exclusive to your members that subscribe. You can put anything here, e-books, articles, interviews and videos among others, and sell them online. Virtually anyone with a personal computer and Internet connection is a potential customer.
