    I'm a writer who specializes in custom SEO content and sales copy. I'm usually pretty busy with writing so I was trying to think of a slightly less intensive method of making money with writing when I want to relax a little.

    Then it hit me, there are tons of writers around the IM world but not all of them have perfect grammar or are native English speakers. I know that they may speak and even write English fairly well but a native speaker can often still tell when something was written by someone like this.

    I figured that it would be great to offer proofreading services to other article writers and marketers. It would make their articles better and is really important if anyone is trying to submit work to places like ConstantContent.

    It would also be a good way to help my fellow IMers which is always something I like to do.

    What do you guys think? I don't want to invest the money in advertising on here without knowing if there is a market for it. Anyone know anywhere I could make some money with proofreading?

    Thanks in advance!

    It's funny that you mention this because I'm an article writer as well and was thinking of something similar. Writing original content is just too labor intensive and doesn't provide good ROI. I think that if you could find a good place to advertise it would be quick money. For example, I run a small staff of fellow writers and take some money off the top for my editing services. If you do find a market I'd be willing to team up with you for a possible JV if you're interested. Good luck.

    I'm not aware of any ways to make money proof reading, I would suggest trying to befriend writers and ask them if they could use your services.
