Nowadays, it’s become much easier to get an editing business off the ground. That’s because there are people all over the Internet looking for well-written original content, and that content needs to be edited. Getting going is generally just a matter of finding yourself a loyal customer base.

Do you have an eye for detail? Do you demand perfection? Do you have experience writing or editing? Then starting your own editing company may just be perfect for you.

Having an editing business is a great for people who need to make money while still having a flexible schedule. You will have deadlines, but when and where you work is almost entirely up to you. You can work editing around a full-time job, or do it while the kids are off at school or after they’ve gone to bed. It’s a business you can tailor to fit you, instead of the other way around.

One of the best parts of starting your own online editing business is that you need very little start-up capital. You can do it from home, and most people already have the tools, including a computer with a word processing program. You may require a small amount of capital to market your business. Otherwise, the rest of the requirements are your own qualities and abilities.

While you don’t need a lot of money to get started, you will need quite a bit of time in the beginning. That’s because you’ll need to find yourself customers. Once you have loyal customers, you will spend most of your time editing (or you will be able to find more customers and do even more work).

Here are a few ways to get started finding people who need editing done:

– Business services. There are a whole host of websites where you can market yourself.

– Message boards. Many people would rather hire from message boards and similar outlets because they don’t have to deal with sifting through bids that aren’t worth their time, writing numerous job proposals, or dealing with higher prices because a portion of the fees go to the site.

– Social networking sites. Sites like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter aren’t just for keeping up with friends and tracking famous celebrities. You can use them to market your business as well. You can find customers and keep them up to date on what’s going on with your business.

– Create your own web page. Not only can you advertise yourself and give your background in a way that you control, you can also put writing samples right there for potential customers to read.

Once you start getting work coming in, you shouldn’t have a problem continuing to get work as long as your product is good. In the end, editing is a great at home business for the busy perfectionist looking to break out on their own.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.

What Can I Do For You?

I can work with you to design a website and marketing strategy that actually works. You'll get a website that looks fantastic but also attracts and engages your potential customers, helping generate leads, sales and profits.

What Will It Cost ?

A discussion about your requirements is completely free of charge.

Solutions are tailored to meet your budget and success goals as much as possible, and websites have been delivered costing just a few hundreds dollars a month or for one of payments of a few thousand... it all comes down to our discussions, if you want a website that generates millions of dollars in sales your budget will obviously be bigger, if you're a small business then your goals and costs will be more realistic, at least to start with.
