    I need help dudes. I've been trying to make my pocket money from online.... it hasn't worked out good.

    I can write quite good at the moment, but don't have much ideas about how to get clients who would love to pay for my articles.

    $100 would be great amount for me, it's lot around here. Would you guys help me with some tips?

    I tried iwriter and dotwriter, I don't like them anymore. Can you please suggest how to get human resource clients? Or any other tips you wanna share?

    tnx in advance.:eek:

    Hi, So for you don't have interest in using "iwriter" & "dotwriter"

    Better, Build a small website for writing services. May you can use your name itself for choosing a website domain name. Once website ready.

    Do promote your website online. It will help you to get direct customers.

    Hope it will works for you well.

    Try freelancer, fiverr and add extras, post on CL, join facebook groups!
    People will always need content writers that's a fact.

    Market the hell outta yourself.

    Don't just think of yourself as a writer. You're a brand. And what do brands do? They market themselves.

    So market yourself as a brand. Create a simple website, offer your services. Promote, promote, promote.

    Try Internet Marketing forums, try Facebook Ads, try LinkedIn Cold Calling 2.0. Email companies who don't have a blog (or have a poor performing one) and tell them you'd gladly write for them.

    Go for it! Good luck, man,

    I'm sure you can do it. Just keep working and it will pay off.

    I started out writing 500 words for $1.5! That's borderline slavery, especially for the quality I'm producing. But eventually, I learned about Fiverr and made a couple more. Then I was able to save up and start my own service here in BHW. After that, I had some private clients that paid way more.

    You'll get there. :)

    And that's where the cash is.

    The problem is most people are lazy. Employers know this so they tend not to give anyone a chance in the early days. You have to build your rep, find the right people to work with etc etc.

    The upshot is that once you've found good clients, they know you're good at what you do and trust you then the cash follows pretty quickly.

    Always have some samples ready, try to post offers in the hire a freelancer section and once you are confident with the skill start a BST.

    Bro, you need standards. Don't accept $2 for 500 words or some other shit people will give you. That's slavery.
    Start at at least $1 per 100 words. If they don't want it, there's plenty of fish in the sea.
    When I first started out it was on Freelancer. Moved to Upwork, then Fiverr. By the time one year passed I had clients who were paying me on a regular basis and made a shitload of money. It's still going.
    It will be slow at start. Just be motivated. Research, improve your writing continuously. Be on blogs 24/7, see how the big boys write. Practice niches you don't know too much about. In no time you'll be writing 500 words in 15 - 25 minutes and you'll be able to write a lot more.
    It's all about improving and having standards.
    When you get to a level when your writing is premium shit hot, you can market yourself like that, but you might not have to.
    My clients are paying me $4/100 words, sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on the niche, and I'm making a killing. I've never had to market myself because they're relationships I have developed over time, and so people lowkey know about me through word of mouth.
    However, BHW is a good place to market your stuff as a start.

    One other option is to send query messages to the following list of "big game" writing sources that pay $39, 50 or 100 per article. Harder to get approved, obviously, but a MUCH better payday and bigger bragging rights if you do:

    Code:
