    Right, I've a few sites now but only 1 that's making any money.

    Should be starting college very soon and can't really afford it.

    Is it possible to make some money by doing articles ? English is my first language and I got a good grade as well before leaving school.

    I'm sure my prices would be low enough compared to some :)

    If anyone has any advice I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

    well, you can offer 1$ / 100 words...

    if you write 1000 word articles you get 10$, I think it takes 15min to write that... 4x15 = 1 hour = 40$ =)

    Average rate for freelance writers with good grammar is between $.01 and $.02 per word.

    You can also try joining a writer compensation program like Demand Media or Associated Content, I was very successful with DM writing for eHow.

    Fiverr- but if you can write 500 words for 3.92 $ approx.

    if not you may want to look into buying a premium wp theme and creating a sales thread here or on warriorf.

    alot of competetion just do your reaserch before you invest you time or money !

    I was thinking about fiverr but less than $4 for 500 words isn't a lot :(

    Yeah, my best suggestion would be fiverr. I did it for about a week and made a couple hundred bucks. I suggest that you say you are going to write a article for up to 500 words and write somewhere around 400-450 words. Lol. But, once you get a couple of good ratings, the orders will just start to flow in.

    At one point I had to cancel the gig cause I had too many orders.

    But, the one thing about making money writing articles, is that it gets extremely boring! But then again it is a good way to get some money to buy products for seo, etc..

    Hope this helps!

    I can suggest a couple of websites to perhaps expand your options. Check these out.
    And, no , I do not get a free toaster if I send you there.
    Look at Zeerk (dot) cOm

    and the there is scriptslisting - which in my mind, if and until your ready for the
    big WF that is a very good bet. A great goal to have is an ad in Warriors for hire on the Warrior Forum.

    Thanks all :)

    I might give fiverr a shot and see what happens...I'm sure I'll get bored of it fast but I might as well try it :)

    If u find it too hard I'll just stop doing it.

    Thanks again

    The thing about writing articles is that you can burn out quickly. I would recommend that you use Dragon Naturally Speaking to help you with speed and volume.

    i would choose AC over Fiverr any day
    cuz with AC you get to choose wat to write about and when to write

    but with fiverr you would have to write on choosen topics and you have a time limit

    Got my first order from my article gig just there :)

    Done writing the article too. Hope the buyer is happy with it but I'm sure they will be :)

    Hope I start getting around 5+ orders a day soon. I think my quality of my Articles is great for $5.

    You want to expand out of Fiverr and what not though, get your own website going and start promoting yourself as a writer, you can make a lot of money if you get the big orders in and a lot of people will start to offer you more money if you articles are quality. :)

    Yeah I agree.

    I just like the way that so many people use fiverr = good chance of getting an order.

    If I get a lot of orders and good feedback I'll think about expanding :)

    Update :

    Sold 1 gig on Fiverr, meh. They leafy really nice feedback too :)

    Got some work on another forum a couple of days ago and within 3 days I've made exactly $300! Have to admit though, have put a good amount of time into it but it's worth it :) I'm not even charging high prices either btw, around $7 per 500 words.

    Thanks BHW :)

    Just because you're native English, doesn't mean you're a good writer. I've paid over $100 for a single quality article. It doesn't matter if I'm paying $5 or $100 for an article, it takes a lot more than native English to be considered a writer.

    And there is no such thing as easy money.
