    I am a web developer. Recently i am trying to do some IM. I can write codes and build wonderful sites. But i can't write articles. Blogging is not my thing. Amazon affiliates, Google adsense , CPA i know these things but to apply those i need to write articles. Anybody making money without content writing on a regular basis ? Can u share your ideas?

    Is there anything in particular that's preventing you from writing content? Why not try to fix the problem instead of circumventing it? That way, you can get the attention that you want (i.e. traffic and sales) in a way that will continue to work. Anything else that's just as effective will cost you a lot more than content generation costs.

    It doesn't have to take long if you have the right tool and if you're willing to think-outside-of-the-box... Because there IS a way to generate original content (i.e. *normal* content) even with little writing skill (if that's the issue).

    I use a program (that I wrote) for similar reasons. I'm getting older. As a result, I can't remember as much... I can't think as fast as I used to... Hell -- I can't even friggin' spell the way that I used to. It started taking hours to write just one article!

    But instead of hiding from writing, which sounds like something you'd like to do (it's understandable), I "outsourced" my writing skills to software.

    Now I can push a button and get things going a lot faster. The software writes content in an intelligible context with correct punctuation, grammar, and spelling so my (aging) brain doesn't have to fuss with anything but what I want to say. And no, it's not a spinner or a scraper. It doesn't access the Internet for a damn thing (except for its help file) so plagiarism is never an issue.

    I'm not suggesting that you code the same, but since you're a fellow coder, you can at least appreciate the concept's practicality. You can at least see it as a real option.

    It can be done. It already has been done. I did it. And that means you can too. With the First Draft Content Generator (my software's name), you can write the content that you claimed you couldn't write. I'm telling you --

    It can be done.

    If you can code and make great sites as you say, you can always provide that as a service to others. I am sure there are plenty of people on this forum who need a good coding service. You could also built an app or a software and sell it. You can browse this forum for such ideas. Internet marketers always need some bot or the other coded.

    id suggest doing a joint venture with a freelance writer, you bring the designing skills, they bring the content skills and together you create something awesome..

    Btw, I am a good content writer ;)

    You can just outsource all the content writing, you don't have to do it yourself, just check out the marketplace a lots of good content writers there.

    Not everyone has to be a content writer. So I would suggest you to look for JV with a content writer. But in this age of CMS like WordPress and video sharing sites like Youtube, novices who haven't written a single line of code, are making thousand dollar websites. So... :rolleyes:

    So don't write. Outsource the writing if you want. Anyway it seems you are coder, so you should spend your time coding, and let writers write.

    In my opinion the best way for you to learn IM would be to sell your services as a coder. Now you don't have to write a lot to do that, but you will need a portfolio of work, and a basic resume or profile. LinkedIn works great for this, and having Skype can help as well for contact opportunities or prospecting.

    You can sell coding here, at Fiverr.com, at freelance sites, or you can completely prospect for yourself by trolling hundreds of forums. You could even create your own site to host some coding work you have done, applications you built, etc...

    It doesn't matter ... no matter what model, niche - online marketing or IM is going to be the same - quality content leads to sales/conversions. Crap content does not! So if you can't write, or don't want to write - you will need to outsource content creation. Nobody is going to give you their golden nugget - no content - cash machine, because there isn't one.

    Buy content, or learn to write content. Those are your only options so I'd start looking for someone to create my content because I think you are likely to choose NOT to write.
