The NUJ has produced a new, free-to-download book to help freelance members find new ways to profit from their work.
Help Yourself – New Ways To Make Copyright Pay was produced with funding from the Authors Licensing and Collecting Society and showcases writers who have developed new models to profit from their work, some digital, some traditional, and explains the mechanics of how their business models work. Download your copy from here.
The photographers among you will notice that business models involving photography do not feature much in the examples in Help Yourself. This is because ALCS, which funded the writing and production of this book, works on behalf of writers. Photographers have their own collecting society.
I hope that you find it useful. Needless to say, if you have any comments or criticisms, I would love to hear from you. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
