Technology News Australia has published a regular “Technology in Focus” digest newsletter. It can be subscribed directly via email. This is one of the most widely read industry magazines in print and distributed throughout the country by the Associated Press. I have enjoyed reading it for years. Over the past few years, I have written several pieces for it as well.
It is a valuable resource with a wide range of articles on all aspects of digital technology. There are no advertising articles in it, because they do not benefit anyone. They are purely informative. The current issue focuses on the latest advances in digital technology and their impact on businesses and industries.
I have enjoyed reading the articles every single time. It’s interesting to see new applications and products being developed along with the newest equipment and gadgets. It’s also a good time to write about new ideas and concepts that people seem to be unaware of. The publication seems to cater to an avid readership, which makes it more exciting to write for.
Each issue has at least two different sections, one focused on new applications and another focused on technology in the manufacturing and retail sectors. In the former section, you will find information on new applications, such as industrial robots. You will also find new details on emerging technologies. Items such as wireless credit card processing machines or cell phones with GPS are often covered.
In the Retail Technology section, you will read articles focusing on trends in this fast paced industry. Handy items like pen and pencils are often profiled. Some of the topics include the impact of new technology on retailing, trends in the mobile market, or new business opportunities in this fast paced industry. There are usually many articles on both the Internet and print that discuss a variety of topics related to technology. If you enjoy writing, you can easily fill up an issue with your own opinions and thoughts on the topics.
You can also publish your own written articles if you have a background in writing or know how to do so. This is becoming a very lucrative vocation. Some individuals even earn thousands each month writing articles. This type of work is not for the faint of heart though. If you want to succeed you will need to be very knowledgeable about many different types of technology. It would be wise to take a computer science, math or business course so you can develop your marketing and selling skills.
Freelance writers are paid per word or article. You are paid per word or article regardless of how long the article goes and for how much it was written. If you can write in one or two languages then this is ideal. If you can communicate in more than one language then this is even better because you have a wide range of topics that you can write about.
Freelance writers are needed more than ever in this booming field. You can place an ad seeking freelance writers and place one of your articles about the new technology on craigslist dot com. Just do a search for freelance writers in your area. As you become more experienced you can begin to offer services to other companies.
Digital technology can change quickly and sometimes rapidly. We see this with phones, video games, microwaves, cars, television, and many other items we use on a daily basis. There is so much information being created and posted online daily that it is hard to keep up. This is why there are people who need articles written about these topics.
Do not hesitate to give an article a good read. If you don’t have anything to write about you can always become involved in discussion boards or online forums. This gives you the opportunity to interact with others and perhaps create a clientele.
Keep in mind that in order to do well with freelance articles you must constantly grow your knowledge of this technology. Digital technology is never stagnant. As technology changes it opens up new doors and gives us more options. Keep your skills sharp and your mind open and your opportunities for success will increase dramatically.
