Home Repair Newspaper Column business. Sometimes the pen is mightier than the sword -- or the hammer. Share your knowledge of repair and get paid without smashing your thumb.
Working as a freelance journalist writing a newspaper column n home repair tips and techniques may not be as difficult to establish as you think. Never in the history of the United States have people taken such an interest in home improvement and repair as they are right now, and the time has never been better to capitalize on this popularity. Getting started in this business will take some time, a few rejections, and a little bit of clever self-promotion. However, once established, there are many methods to make the business pay, and pay big. No names mentioned, but I have a friend who has built a small empire writing about home maintenance an repairs, and starting out, he did not know which end of a screwdriver to hold. However, he did have writing ability and saw an opportunity to capitalize on it. Newspapers, magazines, trade publications, and newsletters are all potential customers to purchase the rights to a home repair advice column. Providing you can accomplish building a regular following, do not overlook product endorsements, because that is where the real money is.
