    Yes yes, I know you are going to say, another noob not reading the threads... I have been reading for months now, and put into practice a few methods but never made more than $10-15 for a lot of work. I am not scared of work.

    I enjoy writing articles, but my question is, should I be selling articles on here, or using the articles for my own use, and if so how? I mean people must buy content for a reason. I can set up blogs ect but unsure on how to get traffic and earnings.

    Anyway any advice appreiciated, I am based in the UK so cannot sign up to textbroker but I have heard about Hubpages ect and willing to try anything.

    Thanks

    Hey,

    The content authority is OK for writing if your from the UK. Pay is not the best though.

    oDesk is good if you can find people willing to pay for quality. I've got a few nice contracts going on there at the minute.

    Besides that, I'd say get a portfolio together to get a few samples. Find a few private clients from here, and give fiverr a shot.

    I offered 10 free articles on here, and got some great long term work. I Went to oDesk and got 2 very nice contracts at $10 an article, and tonight my fiverr got anihiliated whilst i've still got 3 big projects going on.

    Going to be a busy week!

    To answer your question, content is used for a variety of purposes such as :

    quality content on blog posts (since they don't have time to write it) or for websites that is specific content driven without SEO purposes.

    It's up to you whether you want to take time to visit the blog/ranking section of the forum an learn all this or not, or if you want to just keep on producing articles for others. A lot of people, even if they are capable of writing articles, get to a point where it's more cost effective to outsource it then do it themselves.

    I'd suggest you to initially start selling your services on BHW. When you get some long term clients from here, then i would suggest you to start your own blog. Write few high quality blogs and post over there. Once you are done with this step, then all you need to do is spend sometime daily on your blog, as if it were child.

    See it grow, see it expand but remember there needs to be a blend of article writing and focus on your blog. On the sidelines, you need to carry on working for your existing clients. Never for God sake abandon a well paying client because he is your constant source of income until you keep writing for him.
    Hope this makes sense. Try it out and lastly never lose hope and try try try!!!!

    If I was you, I would offer my service as a writer while writing for my own personal sites at the same time. Just to let you know though, in order for you to sell your services here you will need to be a Donor, etc.

    I would stay away from Hubpages, etc, and instead save the money from writing articles in order to pay for domains and hosting. You can also use the money that you make from writing to do SEO on your own personal sites as well.

    You can buy domains anywhere from $1 to $10 and you can get a Hostgator Baby plan that will allow you to host several different domains for $9.95 per month.

    fiverr pays less for you end up getting $3.xx only by the time that $5 reaches your PP account.
    oDesk sucks, you need to give exams and all those stuffs, still do not find quality ppl who are willing to pay for quality.. well you are a lucky one.

    Best option is private search and posting, apart from that a good portfolio and some samples as well.

    Get your articles on high traffic, high pr sites if you can. Write about topics people are very interested to know about and generate social likes and comments. These elements will prove your content is link bait worthy and has value.
