    Hi, I wasn't quite sure where to post this, I hope the lounge is good.

    I have had decent success providing content writing via all the usual sites and consequently attempted to upscale this by means of providing articles privately. I was commissioned to write 100 original articles, within a very small time frame, which I did. Each article is 300 to 350 words and it is all original, not spun.

    After writing all the articles requested I cannot contact the buyer. Last contact with the buyer had me in a flatspin attempting to complete everything by the required deadline, which I did! The buyer has vanished...... This is a huge waste of time and effort, not to mention the earnings for the writing commissioned! Now I am stuck, I would hate to think that these 100 articles were all written for nothing.

    Does anyone happen to have any ideas or recommendations for how to handle large orders in the future? Does anyone any ideas as to what I can do with these articles? I hate to moan, but I was sort of counting on that money! Thanks in advance.

    Be sure to have payment first, or let then have downpayment like 30% or 50%..

    For the articles, thats 100 articles, you can use it to have your own authority site.

    Post what niche those articles are on and someone here might be able to help you

    Don't worry too much, sometimes the buyer must be away on something important offline and might come back soon.

    How long has it been since he was vanished?

    You should always take payment upfront.

    They are all related to fashion. My observations of the articles requested seems to reflect a low competition keyword list for the female fashion niche. Definitely have to ask for upfront payment next time :/

    Simple, in future take 50% of the fee upfront.

    Also what subject/niches are the articles, I am sure you could offer them on fiver or if they are not too specialized you should be able to use them in the future.
