LeeAnne Krusemark: Make Money with a Blog...

Online Conference Meeting

You don’t need a journalism degree or previously published articles to write for anyone’s online blog, magazine, or website, or even start your own blog! Some opportunities offer exposure, while many pay well — $1 a word and more. You will learn how to find ideas, sources, conduct interviews and create interesting content, protect your copyright, and then use this credibility to sell other articles or even your self published novel. We will also discuss how to earn a passive monthly income with your own blog or website by selling other people’s products. LeeAnne Krusemark is an adjunct online Professor of Publishing for Harvard and more than 1,000 other facilities worldwide, and is a nationwide speaker on the topic. She is also a former journalist, editor, and managing editor of newspapers, as well as an author of countless magazine articles and several books, some of which can be found on Amazon. LeeAnne has also recently authored a screenplay that Hallmark has expressed an interest in, and has started representing other writers as an editor and agent. In addition, she has owned a successful award-winning public relations business for more than 20 years and is a Chamber of Commerce past president. The inspiration LeeAnne gives to others has even been compared in writing to Oprah!
