    Hey you guys, so Im thinking of trying to help someone I know out who is in need of some money. I may offer there services here at no gain for myself, just to help them out.

    They are a Harvard graduate who was an executive editor for an international corporation for 13 years and have over 40 years professional writing and editing experience. Because of this SHITTY economy, they lost their job last year.

    How much would you guys pay for 500 word articles written by them? They would probally be some of the most quality articles you had ever seen.

    Also if I do decide to offer their services, I would like to maybe include article submission with it. What is the best directory submission program, or site to join. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    -Viva

    Sorry man, there's no way someone with such horrible grammar has friends (or friend?) that graduated from Harvard. Nice try, though. I can see how this approach might work to sell your article writing services.

    wow I actually have multiple friends who currently attend harvard. My father went to yale and my mother to harvard. The person Im talking about is my mother, I would give her money, but considering she is a hard working and good person, she likes to work for her money and wouldnt let me ever just give her money.

    I honestly resent the idea that you think just because I have poor grammer when i type messages on an internet marketing forum, I wouldnt know intelligent people...

    you obviously dont know anything about me, because if you did, you would know that selling articles is not how I make money. Maybe you should see what Ive contributed to this forum before responding to my thread like that. Im sorry Im not trying to be rude, I was just offended.

    That was totally uncalled for, its that kind of crap that makes me wonder whether you just came off of the DP boat.... your post count and join date seem to support that idea....


    Anyways vivalafeva id be willing to buy articles from her. And since they're going to be quality probably a little more than the standard amount per article. Usually articles range from .6 to $1 per 100 words but Harvard grad probably $1.1/1.2 per 100 words.

    As far as article submission i would recommend outsourcing it permanently for a flat fee per submission because I have yet to find a working fully automated directory submission program. Most claim to be automatic but are really only semi-automatic and you have to enter captchas and its just a headache. I can recommend some outsources if you want.

    Now... on the other hand if you can get me into Harvard......id be willing to pay alot more..... haha lol jk

    Good luck man and ignore that stupid noob.

    Helium = higher pay, but wants higher quality articles
    Associated Content = lower pay, lower quality articles
    Suite 101 = kind of in between

    Vivalafeva made this Thread with a good intention guys.Just imagine his feeling towards helping his needy friends.I bet they will be 100 times better than those in amateur DP :D.
    Moreover, he is a very respected member here and you cant imagine he is trying a cheap idea here :)

    Thanks.

    Dont make her write articles for AC . Make her write sales pages or brand herself as a professional copywriter and charge 25 to 50 cents per word. This may be a bit difficult to start with but brand Harvard will surely help. If you are doing CPA make her give testimonials. Something like "I learnt more from this ebook than from Harvard".

    Hey this person seems really qualified, check out About.com, they hire 'guides', people don't make any less than $1500 monthly I believe and for someone like him it could be much more. I've heard there are doctors etc. that write for them that make into six figures yearly. Best part of this is that it's an actual job, and you're only required to throw up I believe 3-5 posts per week. But they look for people that can verify that they are qualified like this. When you go to apply, it will show what topics are currently open. This job would leave plenty of side time to make extra income. It's one of the more awesome work at home internet jobs available.

    If that's the case, i suggest you offer something cheap not just here but also on WF. WF are home of some hard working riches too.. Post your service there and here. Just make it abit expensive on WF like 5-6 bucks per 500 worded article. And offer great discount here :D

    Dont offer her services cheap. Mention her Harvard degree wherever possible and Charge what you think is insane. Though marketing in forums is easier, you will get considerably less pay. Make a website, do SEO and when it picks up start renting adspace in niche blogs. You take a small cut of her earnings. Though it may seem unnecessary or bad it will definitely motivate you to work more which will server the purpose better in the end.
