One of the great things about the Internet is that all of a sudden, you can find an expert on just about anything, no matter how obscure. As a result of this, people are looking for experts in order to write articles. It has even hit the point that experts now need to know how to market themselves
There are some basic techniques anyone can use. The first is to have a blog or site where you write about what it is that you are an expert in. Not only do you show that you are an expert, but that you can write. This should be considered a vital first step. And take advantage of your professional contacts; if you are someone who truly is considered an expert in your field, then others will try to get you write about your background, and that can help get jobs as well.
You also need to find a site that is looking for your expertise. Then can involve an intensive web search, but you need to look for somewhere to write in order to get paid for writing. It may take a while, but you should find the site eventually. You should also be aware that it can be the most annoying step; even if you are the biggest expert in your field, you may have a problem establishing a reputation in at the respective site (after all, you are new to the site, and so have a lack of reputation to deal with).
Don't forget to keep studying; you need to take writing classes, as well as keep abreast of your field. If you can get better at writing, it will definitely help your odds of being able to write about your topic; too many people forget that you need to be an expert in not just your field, but need to be able to write about it as well.
