    I just read this article: http://thewritelife.com/freelance-writers-publications-to-pitch/

    I've been searching around, looking at writers for industry topics, and the selection is so few. You might find the odd $7 per 100 words person who can do it on TextBroker, BHW, etc but there's so little competition and the pricing is so high.

    After reading that article, you should understand what takes a $5 article and turns it into a $50 article.

    Back in 2009, I wrote freelance to fund my projects but I haven't done it since. If you're lacking money, put your head down and grind it out with some HQ writing. Once you stabilize at $100 per day, you can move on and have money to re-invest.

    DO NOT PM ME APPLICATIONS TO WRITE FOR ME.

    It is a good observation that yu have made buddy. I have been doing some writing for a while now as part of my side hustle and I can say that it is able to bring in some good amount of money. All that it takes in this field is to have the ability to write articles that are of high quality. It is for the reason that you will find someone charging around $100 for an article. It is because they have mastered their field. Just be smart, that is my advice.

    Great advice and this depends on two things;

    The flexibility of the niche,
    and the Authority of the website.

    But that's the point, you pay others who can do that, people who already have that skill.

    Most people can't just suddenly gain that ability, the same as they can't suddenly code a webstore.

    Look at the time you spend versus the cost to get something done professionally, before trying to cut costs and ending up generating crap yourself.

    That's the thing. People need to write on things they really know well. My special interests would be like SEO, Jeeps, guns, boats, etc because those are my hobbies. Write on what you know. If you're a drama queen female like my girlfriend, you can write stuff on make up and niche diets. My point is, most people have hobbies that they have extreme knowledge in, and it's profitable.

    Another point was to look at industries. There are many topics where it's very difficult to find a knowledgable writer. Pick up some books on the topic, learn the topic, and join the high paying $$$ job offers. Too many people write about things that everyone can write on. The money is in specialization.

    That's the point. The content is garbage. Readers won't gain any insight from that. There is 1 member who sells for $7 per 100 words and he's swamped with orders.

    i think the hardest part is not about writing content itself but how people will pick us instead of other writers. just like it's easy to create profile in upwork or freelancer but to get a high profile client (competing with other freelancers) is always the hardest part. even if you write well, if somebody write better than you, what's the odds?

    anyway i read the article and the author send us into couple of article marketplace websites like writersmarket. have you tried this yourself?

    Maybe he is michael jordan of copywriting if those others 99% native American speakers who does copywriting for 1 2 or 5 years and cant reach his level then I dunno.Buy a lottery ticket same but much more money :D Im not saying negative but I doubt someone like me or 99% of other majority will charge 7 usd for 100 words reading learning for a week two or half year,people copywriting doing for 5 years charge 3bucks for 500 don't make it sound "blackhatworld" sound,like its "easy" as its 1 2 3,if it was easy everyone was copywriting and making that amount of money? Or all those people in marketplace with years+++ experience are total dumbs? Im not saying you cant make money with this,but giving it up as anyone can make 100 usd a day and charge 7usd per 100words is total garbage.

    If you are intelligent on any level, if you know ANYTHING about a single hobby, you can find your niche to write. You don't need to chrage $7 per 100 words to make $100 a day.

    It's not that hard to become knowledgable on a subject. Anyone with above average intelligence has a niche where they know their shit.
