I would like to know is it possible to earn a decent income selling article? I read in a forum one guy claiming he is earning a full time income selling articles. He said on the thread that he does not write a single article, he outsource all his article from places like i-writer and then proofread the article by the help of an editor. He hire the editor from places like o-desk. He spend about $3-$4 for 500 words on i-writer and pays about $1.50-$2.00 to the editor for proofreading the article. He sell those article on forum , different content mills and selling to local SEO companys. After reading his thread I tried to implement some of his methods he mentioned, like paid posting on forum but I didn't get respond except 1 guy who is a freebie seeker. I outsource 1 article and gave to him but since then I never heard anything from him. I also tried approach to few SEO companys I know whether they interested to buy article from me but they refuse on the spot. So I would like to know does this methods of outsourcing article and then sell it at higher price still works in 2014?
