    So I'm thinking of writing articles as an addition to my other tasks. Today I wrote a sample article to see how much it is worth.


    Making quality content is every article writer's dream. Creating a large amount of content is not that easy for an individual and hence he is to buy from someone else if you are good at writing you can make some real dollars with this. Sites like Iwriter.com and Fiverr can be an excellent source of selling those articles. Your article should be neat and clean with the right amount of grammar.
    I would like to emphasize that you should go through the topic of the article completely before writing it. Many article writers use scraped and spun content to complete their jobs, but that would not lead you to a good number of happy clients, which is the essential thing in any marketing strategy.

    Here are my some good point on writing articles: ?

    Clarity and precision are musts

    You must be very clear what the article is about, research throughout about it and then write the article. I would advise you to make some short points and put them in your hand or beside the desk so that they would be clearly visible to you in the process of writing an article. It helps in reducing the time in creating the article and helps you in not missing any critical point.

    Article should perfectly search engine optimized

    Most of the clients require articles to be search engine optimized since it is the most vital thing today. Over optimization of any keyword is as bad as under optimization. Make sure your keywords are within the first lines of the article, in between, and in the last sentence of the article. Keyword density should be less than 1%, as stated in various on page guides written on blackhatworld.

    Provide value to the reader

    Although this is an old emphasized point, it holds true even today. If you provide quality to the reader, whether it be for your tier 1 links or money site, you have very little chance of going down. The old Matt Cutts clearly told this since 2011 at least. Let us give him a good farewell by doing what he asked for.
    Be clear about the need
    It is one of the important advice which was given to be by a fellow marketer some days ago. He told me that I should be very clear what my client wants. If you are going to satisfy your client everything else will be fine, he said.

    It's hard to read and with all of the grammar mistakes I wouldn't pay much. Definitely not tier 1 article would be ok for tier 2, probably would pay $0.50 for an article like this.

    I have paid $5 at fiverr for much worse lol
    I would say it is worth around $3-5
    If you want to make your writing worth more then leave opinions out and stick to facts. Get rid of filler and fluff, for example the very fist sentence is pointless.
    hope that helps

    It reads as though it has been written by someone whose first language is not English. If English is not your first language, then it is very good, but far from perfect.

    Like the previous poster said, you've got good English (if it isn't your first language) but in my opinion definitely not good enough to be writing articles. I don't expect to get great articles for $5 but if I got that on iwriter I'd reject it as it's completely unusable.

    It would be hard to point out the mistakes without rewriting the whole article as the whole thing reads like it was written by someone who doesn't speak English. Only a few sentences are actually 100% grammatically correct.

    I'm by no means a great writer but I did a quick rewrite of your first paragraph to give you an example of an article that is easy to read and doesn't contain a lot of superfluous material.
    I hope this helps

    Creating large amounts of content is not easy for most internet marketers. This opens up an opportunity for those interested in writing to start a small business or money making hobby. There is a lot of money to be made by knowledgeable and competent copywriters and there is no overhead to start. Once you're ready to begin selling there are sites such as Fiverr and Iwriter where you can find a large customer base searching for quality articles. Your writing should be neat, clean with special attention paid to spelling and grammar.

    Fiverr would probably be best. A lot of people do not expect superb quality.



    This line makes it noticable that English is not your first language. A lot of people who do not speak / write in English as a first language make the mistake of using he / she when they should use they.





    "the right amount of grammar" signals that it is OK to use a bit of bad grammar too. It should read something like "Your article should be neat and clean with correct grammar and punctuation.

    You are spending your money on nothing. With 3-5 dollars you would buy 10 articles like this. Fiverr is ripping you off :)
