What Successful Writers Do That Unsuccessful Writers Don’t

This week, in case you haven’t heard, I’ve re-opened registration for my Tribe Writers course, which you can learn more about here.

Over the past six years, I’ve been working hard to answer one big, very important question: “How do you make a living as a writer?”

At first, it was something I just wanted to answer for myself. But when I figured out how to support myself with a writing career, I began to wonder if it was possible for others. And what I discovered surprised me.

It turns out that most successful writers do some of the same things. And it also turns out that these are the very same things most unsuccessful writers DON’T do. So what are they?

  • Successful writers clarify their message. Unsuccessful writers don’t.
  • Successful writers build a platform. Unsuccessful writers keep waiting to be “discovered.”
  • Successful writers serve their audiences. Unsuccessful writers serve themselves.
  • Successful writers aren’t afraid to make money to support their art. Unsuccessful writers are.

What does it take to do these things? To make a living off your words, you need more than talent. You can’t be just a great writer. Sure, that’s important. But it’s not enough.

You need more than passion, too. Passion is not enough to sustain you during those long hours of practice. Passion will not insulate you from the barbs of critics and the sting of failure.

You need something more than just good intentions and a little skill to make it as a writer today.

What you need is a roadmap — a proven process that the greats who have walked before you have followed.

You need to know what to do when and why it ultimately matters.

That’s why I developed Tribe Writers. It helps you accomplish what seems so elusive for so many writers who dream of going pro. We show you how to make a living off your words by clarifying your message, building a platform, and serving your audience.

This is everything I’ve learned from working with thousands of authors, plus my own career of publishing five books, hitting multiple bestsellers lists, and reaching millions of readers with my writing.

Over 6,000 people have gone through this program, and I’m confident it will help you, too.

If you’re still not sure, here are answers to some of the biggest questions I’ve received:

Question 1: Is Tribe Writers for beginners or advanced students?

Tribe Writers is a course for aspiring writers or people who have published a book but haven’t yet reached the kind of success they dream of.

In the course, I teach you via 5–15 minute video lessons how to start a blog, build an email list of 1000 subscribers, and get your audience to buy your work, allowing you to make at least $1000 per month with your writing.

You can go at your own pace, but if you watch one video a day for five days a week, you’ll be done in 60 days.

Question 2: Why do I need this?

Maybe you don’t.

  • If you’re already publishing books and selling thousands of copies…
  • If you already have thousands of readers of your blog…
  • If you’re already making thousands of dollars a month off your writing…

Then you probably don’t need Tribe Writers. But…

  • If you’re frustrated and just don’t quite know what to do…
  • If you keep trying things but nothing seems to work…
  • If you can’t figure out what the plan for writing success looks like…

Then you probably need Tribe Writers.

Question 3: Why do I need to join now?

Good question. Tribe Writers is open for registration only two times a year. The next time will be October at the earliest. And often, the price goes up between launches, so now is the best time to get the best deal.

Question 4: Does this work for fiction?

Definitely. There are some different approaches to building a fiction platform, but the principles still work. In Tribe Writers, there are thousands of novelists and fiction writers. If you write fiction, you’ll be in good company!

In fact, a student recently blogged about the impact Tribe Writers had on her fiction career right here.

Question 5: Does this really work?

Well, ask a student yourself…

“I’m a writer who dreamed of publishing a book. Tribe Writers transformed that dream into a reality. I’ve taken writing courses before, but Tribe Writers is beyond compare. Instead of the typical information download many courses provide, Tribe Writers gives you a blueprint of intentional steps to get you there. From finding your voice to going pro, the course lays out an action plan designed to help you reach your goals. The support is unmatched and the community phenomenal. I’m a fan for life.” — Doris Swift

  1. I am sure your program is first rate Jeff. This post proves it.

    Being passionate is not enough. Practicing writing is not enough. The way to succeed is to have that passion and to write but to build the passion around practicing AND to tie your love for writing, and the writing itself, to some plan.

    I see aspiring authors on forums who want to sell thousands of copies of their eBooks with no plan in mind. They have the fire. They may have an idea about their direction. But the plan is missing.

    If someone offers them a plan to work from they often ignore sound advice because like many writers, they are a bit in the clouds. When grounding is where it’s at, writing-wise, author-wise and yes, selling-wise.

    Really weird limiting belief authors cling to: many would rather struggle financially than actually make money from their writing talents. Tortured artist bit. Or tortured author bit. Self-fulfilling prophecy here because these guys and gals literally torture themselves by choosing not to make money through writing, when that very money would help to give them peace of mind and also fuel their writing careers.

    Excellent insights here Jeff.

    Folks, sign up for his course. He knows his writing stuff inside out!

  2. Thanks, Jeff.

    “Successful writers serve their audiences. Unsuccessful writers serve themselves.”

    This statement assumes that a successful writer is one who earns a satisfying amount of money. However, some writers classify success as being able to publish whatever they feel like whenever they want. They’re happy to see their name in print, even if it’s only on one copy of one book.

    I’m with you on the definition of success. To a point. One of the reasons I love what I do is the freedom to write in my pajamas–without deadlines.

    First of all, final exams can be cumulative and non-cumulative. Cumulative exams test students on all the topics that very covered from the beginning of the term, whereas non-cumulative exams cover only some part of the materials, usually the ones studied after a midterm. Your task is to find out whether the final exam will be cumulative or not. Certainly, it is much easier to repeat only some part of the course, but a lot of exams are cumulative and it is better to know this in advance. Find your own way to study. You may hear from other students that they like to study in the library or they cooperate with other students and ask each other questions. In fact, there is no right or wrong way to prepare for an exam. See more at this article, there are plenty of tips.

  4. A writer is a person who shows his ideas that appears in his mind. For a writer his or her ideas should be clear for others that other can get knowledge easily.

  5. “Buy a research paper” – not the best title for clause. You need to put the point inside your creation. It is one more advice for excelent book.
    Actually, money is not too important, as for me. Much more important bring to the reader your feelings and thoughts.

  6. Please sir can you replay me . I am 14 years old girl I want to be a writer and I have so much ideas , so at what age can I start writing ?

  7. Unfortunately not all people have much talent and time even for writing tasks at the university, not speaking about writing their own books. Don’t know how to deal with the second problem, but with university writings this should undoubtedly help you: https://buyresearchpapers.net/
