Diversifying Income Streams : Strategies that Work
December 8, 2021, 3:00 pm-4:30 pm ET
Writing is first of all a labor of love. But what happens when you grow tired of relying on every magazine and book contract, every content writing assignment, every essay or word count to earn the money and respect you really desire? Think diversifying. This ASJA panel of experts will demonstrate how you can mine other complementary skills to achieve unparalleled success and new income streams. How about establishing yourself as an expert speaker on the lecture circuit, creating podcasts and voice overs, applying for research grants, teaching, even becoming a book sales and marketing coach? This Webinar will show you exactly how three writers reinvented themselves with new skills and hard-won marketing savvy.
Our three panelists have all made fabulous careers by diversifying their reach to new audiences:
