Book Description

Writing Online is more than a writing book. It's a road map to show you how to make a great living from writing.

Writing Online teaches you not only how to write copy that sells, but also marketing, blogging, social media, SEO, list building, and how to build a strong reader or fan base.

This is the book I wish I'd read when I first started writing for a living. A book that would have saved me lots of wasted time and money and made me realize my dreams a bit earlier.

I want to help you realize your dreams without stumbling as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is how "Writing Online" helped me 30 Dec. 2011
By David M
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Writing Online helped me in the following ways:

* It taught me how to write fast. I mean really fast. Sean's techniques helped me write quickly without compromising on my voice or style.
* It inspired me on my writer's journey. It helped me to know that I am and will be a successful writer.
* It taught me how to make a living writing online by selling useful information products.

This isn't a book about finding publications or businesses to write for. It's a book about selling your own writing in ebooks and reports by building a blog and email list.

This is an inspiring book, and one of my favourite books on writing.

If you want to make a living writing for magazines and newspapers, I recommend No Contacts? No Problem! How to Pitch and Sell Your Freelance Feature Writing by Catherine Quinn.

If you want to make a living writing for businesses, I recommend The Well-Fed Writer: Financial Self-Sufficiency as a Commercial Freelancer in Six Months or Less by Peter Bowerman.

And if you want to make a living writing online, I recommend Writing Online by Sean Platt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Save time, find clarity, become a better writer 23 Dec. 2011
By Steve Hill - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Writing Online is one of those rare resources that saves time, provides clarity, and helps to make better writers. This is because Sean Platt has taken the first years of his journey to become a self-sufficient writer and condensed the lessons he learned into this easy-to-read book.

Sean doesn't gloss over the hard work required to be earning a living as an online writer, nor does he relentlessly promote expensive materials while promising extraordinary riches. Instead, this is a very realistic, down-to-earth practical guide to what it really takes to lead a successful online writer's life, whether that is as a blogger, copywriter, ghostwriter, novelist, or some other kind of writer.

Writing Online provides a solid overview of the core competencies required of any online writer in today's market, such as blogs, headlines, and social media, as well as work habits, tools, finding your voice, and common mistakes to avoid. It's not really a detailed how-to book (although it provides plenty of details), it is more of a foundational book that helps build a solid understanding upon which anyone wanting to learn or become better at writing online can build. Perhaps more importantly, it lays everything out with enough clarity that anyone can then visualize and build their own path to the goals they want to reach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Writing Online is like having a personal guide on the path to becoming a writer 19 July 2011
By fhfarmer - Published on
Writing Online, by Sean Platt, is a must-read guide for anyone wanting to know what it takes to become a legitimate online writer. From starting a blog to writing, publishing, and selling your own creations, Sean not only tells us about many different ways to make it as a writer, he also tells us HOW to do it. Sean's transparent account of his personal struggles and successes on his online writing journey are weaved throughout the book and serve to provide inspiration, encouragement, and wisdom to those just getting started.

Writing Online will also prove to be a valuable reference to aspiring online writers. Each chapter stands on its own by providing specific, valuable information that can be revisited at anytime, no matter what stage of the game you're in. Sean also provides a very useful "tools" guide that will show the writer how to save time and work smarter.

Perhaps the best feature of Writing Online is it's straight forward, tell-it-like-it-is delivery. Rather than false promises of easy riches with no effort, you'll learn that being a writer requires actual work, time investment, and diligent effort. Sean explains that, although making a living online can be very difficult, it also delivers greater rewards that make the challenges worthwhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Work That Inspires 5 Jan. 2012
By phaedrus"Neil - Published on
As an author and writer Sean has an engaging way of putting things. His take on what works and what doesn't is honest and encouraging in spite of what could go wrong (or right, in spite of ourselves). The information he gives is practical and useful and his insistence on doing what it takes to get to where one wants to ultimately be is refreshing. He doesn't deny there is work involved.

Anyone who has spent any time to research the subject of writing probably has landed on their own particular style but Sean's take on things can only help one become more effective at becoming the writer you're meant to be.

What I found most helpful was the transparency of his description of the process. Good and bad. Success comes from deliberate planning and honest effort. It's a great reality check for dreamers. Aren't we all in some way, shape or form?

The tag line of his messages are most telling of all. "I did can you"

How true.

Get this.

Get busy.It won't happen until you do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Writing Online: Write Your Dreams to Reality 27 Dec. 2011
By Catherine McKinney - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Reading Sean Platt's Writing Online is like grabbing coffee and sitting down to a long chat with a good friend who happens to be a successful writer. His conversational tone, revealing vulnerability, and actionable advice is the perfect blend of inspiration and expectation.

The book addresses the basics of the online writing potential without sugar coating. Sharing his writing adventures, Platt answers many questions an online writer poses while standing at the edge of the precipice - providing the courage for the next step.

Reading the book from beginning to end is an education in itself, but not necessary. Even single topic chapters are short intensive learning pods, to be revisited, for the budding online writer. The chapter on headlines alone provides not only a sampling of strong, persuasive headlines, but also provides ideas for jump-starting other writing projects, if not single writing exercises.

Suggestions, examples, resources fill out the friendly conversation. All through the book Platt reminds the reader, the aspiring writer, the benefits of failure, of learning, of sharing and most importantly of all, of writing. And writing some more.

Platt reminds us our dreams are meant to become real. Writing Online provides a path towards that goal.
