    This is one of my methods I currently am using as of typing this successfully. This is me giving back, for all the wonderful advice I read on this forum. I'm making high $$$ off this at the moment and pretty much am doing nothing past the point of setting it up, and sending payment once a month. This could easily be used to bank $$$$ - $$$$$$ if used correctly.

    The variations of niches in this area are so wide I decided it wouldn't hurt my business to share the method. If it has been shared previously I apologize. I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes, only give back.

    This is very simple, and anyone can do it. The upfront cost will very depending on how you wish to use this method. Me personally I spent 0 dollars and made over 500.00 my first 30 days.

    1: Make a Paypal account if you don't already own one.

    2: Make yourself a new email account, gmail or any flavor you like. This is just to help keep business separated from your personal account. I don't like mixing business with pleasure, not a good combo if you want to get stuff done. Feel free to skip this step if you wish, or already have one for this reason.

    3: Make a Freelancer account, sign-up using the info from the steps above.

    4: Look around on the freelancer website, pick a topic of interest, and think how you could use it to make money brainstorm on this for 10 minutes. Take down some notes.

    5: Now its time to put your game face on, you must write out a work order in a professional manner, remember no one knows you. If you play the part, you will be respected as someone that is successful, and treated as such from freelancers interested in your job offer... You should mention all payments will be made every 30 days, and not to bid if this is unacceptable. Be sure to make them bid an amount to prove they can follow simple instructions, if they don't do this its best to skip this person. They could very well be an idiot, or not be able to comprehend english very well.

    6: Look around at different offers similar to your own, and look for people bidding that write good English. My niche required that no one I hire would be in the US so I paid close attention to where they were located as well.

    7: Ok so you found the amount of workers needed for your idea. Make sure you go over your assignments with them, and make sure they understand they must meet deadlines, use correct grammar etc. Make sure you know how much turnaround they are capable of each day. Your the boss after all, and will be paying them. So be to the point, and make sure your not wasting each other's time. After all time is money.

    8: Execute your idea whatever it was, you now have 1+ workers able to do whatever niche you picked, working with the promise of a payment in 30 days.

    9: Enjoy your easy income!

    Here is what I done, I wont site any sources but you will get a decent idea of how I done this.

    I picked articles as my niche, found 3 people capable of working directly off of 3 sites I was previously doing the grunt work for that paid me 1 cent per word, 2 cents per word, and the 3rd paid 3 cents per word.

    These sites only pay US citizens, with that in mind I made it a point to remove all US citizens when scanning potential employees. After hiring my employee's I had a good long talk with each person until I felt comfortable with him or her.

    I released the login and password to my 3 article accounts to each of the 3 employees. They were only paid 25 cents per 100 words, where as I was making in the range of 1 to 3 cents.

    All 3 employees worked out perfectly and still are doing great work. They churn out 5 to 8 articles each per day and make me bank. I've never had any issues with articles being accepted, since I put in the effort before hiring an employee, and requested 2 article samples up front to evaluate them.

    The only thing I do each month is request payments and issue each worker their small cut of my pie. I make it a priority to give each worker a nice email once a week on how great they are doing to keep him or her in good spirits.

    Please no flames, and if you find this information useful any thanks is welcomed.

    Thanks for sharing this. How willing are people to work if they know they wont get paid for 30 days? Have you had any problem with this? How many "employees" do you have or have you hired? Thanks again!

    The dark blue was not the best choice in color for sure, so if it?s hard to read just select it all to highlight it. Makes it a bit easier on the eyes. :eek:

    Where do you get your clients? I'm having trouble finding clients that pay for articles.

    Like is said in the post, you must present yourself as someone who is established, if you talk the talk, and walk the walk. They don't know you, and will be more then willing to work for you.

    I've never had an issue getting people to work 30 days in advance, its all in the presentation. Your selling yourself more or less. ;)

    The part that I don't understand is that these employees of you don't see that they could work for the site itself and earn way more then you pay them. So they are smart enough to write good articles but stupid enough to not notice they can are cut short ?

    I changed the color of the OP's text to cyan. The blue color could hardly be read.

    There is no simple method to get clients, you have to just look around and put yourself out there. They won't be coming and asking you to write their articles this I can promise.

    Post your service on forums, approach sites that use a lot of articles and see if they have a need for your services, and give them a free sample article to establish a connection.

    Don't be scared to take chances, offer to under cut their current rates they pay any current article writers. Everyone in the business world likes to make money, and if you offer him or her a way to save on their wallet they may just bite. But if you don't put yourself out there you will never know!

    Google is your best friend ask it for leads, keywords and the search bar is your best friend also keep your mind on outside the box mode and you will see the$$$$

    I'm sure my employee?s can see this fine, but they would have to establish their own connections. The connections I establish hire US writers only, and I target employees outside the US. The areas I target for potential employees .25 US is still decent money for them once converted to say rupees.

    Where on earth is there a site that pays 1 cent per word? name it man. Are you talking AC here?

    Also, A rewritten article is gonna cost $2 bucks and an original at least $4.

    AC pays crap for articles upfront I get 3 to 5 dollars per, if you can get traffic to your AC articles this is the only way they are profitable. I wont lie I do use AC as a minor source of income as well, only for the fact that they are like a mini cash machine giving reoccurring payments on articles I already submitted and promoted...

    There is plenty of sites that pay 1 to 5 cents per word, 5 come to mind. I'm fairly sure at least a few of the 5 are listed on BH Forums I know textbroker is for sure, none of these 5 are AC. I wont give all my sources; this was not what this thread was intended for. You must be able to write good enough to be offered this amount of compensation for your article as well. Not everyone that uses one of these sites make this much. So pick who writes for you carefully if you want max pay per word.

    Also if you pay 2 dollars for a rewrite and 4 dollars per article I hope these are going to a blog, or article site that you own, that be the only way I'd be willing to pay in this range or higher. But to each there own, this is just how I think.

    I don't wish to cut my own throat, and over saturate one of my sources of income. Though I don't mind sharing one of my methods, just understand I don't want to give everyone all of my sources and walk them threw how to kill my business. I think this is fair enough lol.

    This thread works wonders in many areas outside of articles that pay considerably more, and I been adding them to my daily routine and enjoying the added income.

    I doubt you will ever reach $$$$$ with articles alone, not saying its impossible. Because you could open you're own article writing site and monetize and remove the middleman. But I found other areas like site design, scripts, and ebooks can easily reach this amount with some thought and a mix of clever IM with the use of affiliate ads or coupon codes linked to your affiliate account(s).

    I don't know about original articles, but $1/article is realistic for rewrites.

    Hey Naz,

    Do you use any proxies to keep third party sites from knowing they're being accessed from non-US countries, or have you found that to be a non issue?

    I've done a bit of article writing arbitrage myself, but this thread is motivating me to try letting go of the reigns a little. Thanks for bringing it up!
