    So I am fairly new to BHW, IM and the SEO stuff, but from what I have read so far people start off by writing article for like $1-$2 for 100 words.

    Now from my understanding I can't post a service's thread until im a veteran, but i really want to start writing for other people.

    I am in college at a major university in America, written tons of papers over my lifetime, but I have only once written an article for someone else, but that was ages ago.

    So I just want to know what is the best method for me to go about writting about 2000 words a day and getting paid good for it?

    Do I start a service on here somehow, or go to another website?

    Again I am looking to write about 2000 words total a day.

    If anyone could help I would love it!

    Thanks

    You can also try places like Text Broker. When you write articles for them, they pay weekly to a Pay Pal account. It's pretty competitive out there. Best of luck.

    Try PMing people who are looking for writers. Start that way and keep in touch with the customers you work for. You will soon grow your own network of referrals. I can tell you it works coz that's how we got started.

    At the base of any good writer is an understand of language and grammar. Then, work on your researching skills.

    I will 2nd TextBroker, good training for any future writing.
    The suggestion to start off by writing articles is pretty old, and maybe not the best advice.

    You would be better off picking an actual AM method, one that has the potential to earn a few quid, not a chump change spamming one, and research it.

    Have a look at what monetary outlay is required (usually under $200 will set you up fine - dont spend a ton on tools yet) then get a part time job for a few weeks to pay for it.

    Quicker than spending endless hours online scratching few a few $.

    I'd say go with text broker. I'm from Australia and recently joined the UK (international) site for textbroker and it's great. Only problem is sometimes there isn't that many jobs in certain categories. But i would imagine the US site would have much more to offer because it's been around longer. You could try iwriter as well, but the pay is crap when you start out (2.5$ for 500 words) but improves once you get 30 good ratings.

    Best of luck

    I got my feet wet with article writing with content authority - From what I understand, they are similar to textbroker (I haven't written with them before).

    The rates are pretty decent, and if you're good, you can get some repeat business.

    Lately I've had luck finding clients with Fiverr. Truly good writers are rare there, so it's easy to get some regular work that pays more than $4/article from understanding clients.

    There are also a wealth of connections to be made here on the forum - You just have to make the right impression, and be good at what you do.

    I believe so. They work on a tier system, depending on your writing abilities. All payments are made through Paypal.

    You have to have a writing sample approved before starting, but I imagine if your english is decent that they'll let you write.

    As far as I know, Content authority is currently closed to new authors although they will keep you on file when they do. I'm also australian and I'm trying to signup to Textbroker but it's not working :rolleyes:

    You can start writing articles from the small scale then slowly goes on increasing.
