    Hi BHW.
    I am sort of a newb to making money so i wanted to most likely do something to do with buying articles then selling them to AC or a person. I have around $45. I wanted to know is there really profit in doing this and how well do you believe a new person can do with this? Is there a best method to maximize profits. What places should i be looking to buy and sell my articles if not ac?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    There is money in buying and selling articles and since not all writers were created the same, finding that "perfect" one should be your main task.

    I own a content PLR shop and one of my clients is involved in buying our articles and selling them for a higher price.

    GAF, you can post the project there for a free for the first time, but you also get a new freelancer as well. But, sometimes, a new freelancer is very spirited to give the best to their very first job. (like I do, lol)

    ok guess I will try for to post project for around 30 articles for $45 or something then sell them to ac or to someone else. The problem with someone else is that they need a specific topic so you have to sell first. What categories does ac like most?

    You can make them concentrate on their best interest (the freelancer), for example, you might find one person that has passion on lifestyle, ask him/her to write him/her passion on lifestyle, they will be happy, and will be doing it greatly.

    Best categories, AC is like a woman, we cannot understand her very easy. (I personally think the editor is woman, LOL)

    My idea for you is web flipping. Get some quality articles from freelancer or post in craiglist for article writers. Get 10 - 15 articles (300 - 500 words) and then get a .com domain from godaddy. Install wordpress and post the articles all there. Do some SEO and get fast hits ( I recommend buy from megatraffix.com it's cheap).

    Once you get around 3000 hits to your site and got indexed, sell the site in sitepoint or any other forums. With 10 unique articles + traffic that you get for the site, you can easily sell the site for $200 - $500. Trust me, there was a guy that did this and he hardly promoted his site. He wrote 12 articles about body building and posted in his brand new site. He sold it for $350 within a month ;)

    Hope that helps.

    Not bad, not bad at all. Now all I need to do is find a killer niche...
