Ad Copy: Both Google and Facebook display online messaging – ads – on their platforms. Study some of those ads and see if you can write them better, snappier, and more appealing then approach them with a portfolio of your ad compared to one they’ve just run.
Menu Descriptions: If you are a ‘foody’ and you love to eat out but you hate it when the menu isn’t appealing in its descriptions of the food you are contemplating ordering, then maybe you should step up to the plate - pun intended! Write your own mouth-watering description of the food offered and present it to the owner. One or two will do. Don’t rewrite the entire menu until you’ve been hired.
Business Newsletters: Many businesses are good, even excellent at what they do and the services they offer, but they may be clueless when it comes to writing enticing, informative, and confidence building material. If you like to write short, snappy articles then writing newsletters could be another arrow in your quiver.
Technical Manual: This requires an exclamation mark! Writing a technical manual, in correct English that is concise, easy to understand and follow is a great talent. Think of the many times you’ve purchased something that had to be put together and you couldn’t understand the instructions or some of the guidelines are missing and/or incomplete. Have you said, “I can do better than this.” Then maybe you should do better than that, write the instructions and send them in.
Review Books: Some authors will pay for a book review – not those of us in the Authors Underground program. But you can get paid for reading a manuscript, expressing your thoughts, and giving feedback.
Write SEOs: SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is the content that pops up when you are searching for something online and you aren’t sure how to look for something. You have to be able to think like the people who might be looking for this item and write to their thought process. Not an easy gig, but a good one if you are qualified and can get it. We believe you can.
