How to make $3000 monthly writing only niche articles

Many writers would have come across headlines like this and somehow believe that a raise in their income would be instantaneous. Sorry to break it to you, but it doesn’t work like that.

Now before you go off thinking this is clickbait, it isn’t.

I will tell you how to make $3000 monthly as a writer, or at least how I did, but it took years to get good at our craft.

There were lots of trial and error (which you do not have to make). So keep on reading as we tell you how to make niche content writing your ideal content marketing strategy.

Writing has been a passion of mine for years. I have always been creative and have loved writing, but I never thought about making money with it until some friends and I had a discussion.

Delving into content writing wasn’t smooth-sailing from the beginning. Believe it or not, as a novice writer, you’re lucky to land a client willing to pay you $10 per article, especially if you are new to freelancing.

Why Niche Content Writing?

When we consider content marketing strategies, especially from a writer’s view, writing niche content tops the list. It is a great way to make decent money online. The average income of niche content writers is $4,000 per month. That’s not bad at all! Of course, like any job, it won’t be easy or quick-paced, but if you work hard on your skills, you can get there.

If you’re interested in getting started as a writer but aren’t sure where to start or how much time (or money) this might require on your part, then hopefully, you can learn from our journey and see what niche writing could potentially look like for a writer who wants to spend the summer in Italy, sipping wine, while putting the “remote” in remote work.

Making $3000 monthly as a writer does not happen overnight.

As I said earlier, you’re not going to start writing with people paying you $1000 per job. But if you are the lucky .01% and have the inside scoop, then we are willing to learn. But, like how Rome wasn’t built in a day, it’s just not realistic to expect $3000 on your first day out.

Unfortunately, we live in a society that expects you to prove yourself time and time again but will still undercut your skill.

Getting to a high monthly income from the comfort of your home is an uphill climb, but boy, is the view worth it. As a beginner, I advise splitting your time between a job that pays bills, developing your writing skills, and writing part-time.

You must hone your craft in your niche as a beginner writer.

Honing your craft is one of the best ways to ensure you’re not underpaid. It’s one of the reasons I could afford to charge as much as I do now. The best way to do this is by starting with a niche you are interested in or passionate about. But it’s not enough to have your niche be interesting to you alone. There should be a target audience for it, and it’s your job to know what reading structure they like.

Once you know what they want, it’s easier for you to deliver quality content that resonates with your readers.

Benefits of being a niche content writer

There are many benefits to being a niche article content writer. For example, if you have a niche topic and write about it, you have a set target audience. Of course, your work isn’t for everybody, making you a specialized service provider.

Most niche writers are considered or should be experts in their field. (we would like to think of it like a vampire being poor in 2022.) If you spend all that time writing about a particular topic, you might as well be an expert in it.

Because of the time, effort, and sometimes money you put into developing your skill, you can afford to charge whatever you want. You can’t accurately measure knowledge, but you can put a tag on what said knowledge is worth.

My journey to $3000 monthly

My journey to 3k a month started from Fiverr. I wrote for anybody and just about anything.

One write-up I can never forget is “Celebrity TikTok doppelgangers.” The whole time I wrote it, I kept asking myself what kind of world we live in that makes people care about this. After freelancing for two years on different websites, I fine-tuned my skills (targeting b2b brands) and soon realized I could land local and global long-term clients with paid retainers.

I then forged valuable partnerships and created a stable team of writers, editors, graphic designers, etc., who were and still do work on our behalf by contributing to the product we are selling (in this case, content).

Put yourself out there.

Cold pitching via email, online forums, and even LinkedIn, you name it,  we did it. You can also use freelance websites like Upwork and Fiverr to find clients. If you’re willing to work for lower rates than what you’d get from a traditional publisher, these sites are great places to look.

Email cold pitching — sending out emails directly without any connection with the company — brought us good results. If this seems like something that works for you, here are some tips:

  • Make sure your cover letter is correctly formatted so that it’s easy for hiring managers at large companies (and human beings) to read quickly. This will help them understand what they’re getting into when they click “accept” on an offer letter email sent by someone who looks like they could write well.
  • Find the right emails ( is an excellent place to start)

The transition from freelance to a content writing agency

Freelancing is one of the easiest ways to make money from writing. However, it’s worth considering creating a content writing agency if you’re looking for a more sustainable and structured form of income. The first step we took in this process was finding clients willing to pay on a retainer or monthly basis (or both). Once we found these clients, they needed to know exactly what they wanted from their relationship with us as an agency.

We also created clear expectations between both parties about how much work will be completed per month and when progress reports should be sent. This way, both parties can always plan without feeling overwhelmed by unexpected deadlines or having trouble communicating back and forth about project details.

But simply put, we were freelancers for over four years, and in that time, we could prove our skills and defend our rates so much that our clients moved with us. So when we told our regular clients that we were rebranding, it was easy for them to retain us because they knew what we could deliver.

Believe in your abilities.

Earning a decent income from niche writing is quite possible but requires effort. You have to believe in yourself and be willing to learn from your mistakes because if you don’t do that, then you will constantly be underpaid.

Also, listen carefully to what experienced content writers with proven track records have to say. The main idea behind making money off niche articles centers around the quality of content rather than just quantity alone. Of course, you can always make $3000 monthly in quantity but at what cost? Wouldn’t you instead make $3000 on four long-form articles over $3000 from 50 articles?

You’ve put in the work, so why not enjoy the reward?
