But all is not lost. There are ways and means to get a foot in the door in your chosen niche of report writing. Although many of the methods are tried and tested, they are not cut and dried. Resilience and a little innovation can be applied.

  • Library resources – For now, you may need a little training. Resources are available on how to write effective reports that sell. Also, you may need to adapt your writing style to suit targeted markets.

Refining your research

  • Online news sources – The best area’s for maximum exposure will be your local newspapers which these days are all published online. Many of them are free, so you are spared some change.
  • Blog posting – News sites are extremely competitive areas for writers, but this does not mean you have to sell yourself short. You gain an early foothold by showcasing your talents through news websites’ unique blog forums.

Op-ed writing for the ambitious

A warning
