    Hi,

    I am a writer, and I would like to know how do I get clients who want SEO articles, copy-writing, assignments, essays. editing or proofreading done for them. I have been conned by agents who represent clients who actually pay them but the agents in turn do not pay me. So I have decided to get the clients directly in order to avoid being cheated by these agents.

    Warm Regards

    Ravi

    Well, make a BST thread here once you've been around long enough.

    DP users are always looking for SEO articles and such too.

    Perhaps set up a joint venture here? I know you're wary about trust, but if you cover your bases, you'll be able to work without having to wonder if you'll get paid. Essentially I'm saying: Don't deliver content until you've been paid. It isn't being selfish, it's simply respecting your operation. LOTs of people here are looking for writers who can deliver.

    I always pay my writers up front (I did the 50% - 50% deal the first time I bought), and they have never screwed me over, so for the sake of maintaining this momentum of integrity, I won't screw them over.

    Try Odesk, elance, vworker and BHW threads. Ask for 50% advance payment and don't start without getting an advanced payment!

    1. You should write some sample articles to everybody can see your article quality.
    2. Sell it on marketplaces as :eek:desk, freelacer, or open thread on BHW for sales

    Enjoy!

    Hi Donor,

    I actually got 'conned' by people asking me for the articles for review, and when I submit them lets say they aske me for 10 articles within 24 hours (each 500 words), and I do 10 but submit 5 for review purposes.. they disappear, and sometimes its just one.. sometimes 2.. I am quite new to online writing but otherwise I can go on and on about a tree for a thousand words.. ha haha.. anyway, thanks for the input, I'm not sure if i should click the thank you button, read some rules here that said don't use it unnecessarily.

    Maybe I can write for you a dollar for a 100 words, no need for upfront payment too..

    Cheers and again thank you

    Warm Regards

    Ravi

    Cyravi,

    You could create a profile on Elance highlighting your writing skills. The site has lots of categories for writing related talents. You have to search for jobs and follow up on bids for work but I have seen people have success with it.

    https://www.elance.com/

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn

    You could try direct mailing clients who might be interested in
    what you have to offer. I hope you have a website. It will help you
    get upfront payments from clients before you work on orders
    and it will be a good way to showcase your writing skills

    You seem to be interested in dealing with clients directly, so why don't you consider getting contracts with SEO companies. This can turn out to be one of the best things you'd have tried out lately.Try doing some research and get the list of SEO companies in your city, and then try either visiting their office or sending them your portfolio via mail. Keep trying until you've 2-3 long term SEO companies.

    However, as someone already mentioned, you can also go for a JV with senior members. It can also be a great money earning opportunity.
    Hope this helps. All the best.

    search for people that are building autority content sites or micro niche site and contact them, at first, to make some quick cash. they buy bulk articles. also request an advance payment for your safety.

    Put up an ad on forums like this. Offer a couple of free articles as reviews. If people give you good reviews, others will pay for your work.
