    Hi guys. Just wondering if there are any places that I could sell writing services. I am already selling on Fiverr an doing quite well but I want to get some more clients. Just wondering if you would recommend any other sites?

    I am writing on a specific niche only - its one that I have a fair amount of experience in so I am marketing it as high quality content.

    If I thought it would be worth while I would open a BST here but I don't think it would sell well here because its only one specific niche.

    I won't go into any more detail on here because I don't want it to look like I am trying to sell here (which I am not) but any advise on other active content marketing sites would be appreciated.

    Signed up for odesk which is actually now called upwork. Also came across freelancer.co.uk which looks good. And I ended up submitting a sales thread request here on Bhw as well so hopefully that gets approved:)

    I can advice you to start your own website in the specific niche, if you already have lot of experience. I am sure you can offer quality content on that subject, so why not make some side income from your website? People can even recognize if you are creating content that can sell and you can offer services through your own website. However, this is not an instant solution for getting more clients, but in the long run, it can take a good effect on your writing career in my opinion.

    For instant solutions, I recommend checking out Elance and Upwork. I specifically recommend Elance as I have found several clients who paid me over $1000 for some easy jobs. I think that people on Elance are paying much more than on Upwork. I would never work under my rates and if I go to Upwork, I would definitely need to bend over for some peanuts and I am not willing to do that.

    You can also sell your articles on websites like ConstantContent, however, they have strict policies about new members so you need to be exceptionally good writer if you want to join their website.

    There is a marketplace at Digital Point forum as well where you can offer your services. I am sure you can find plenty of work even if you are working only in one niche, though you need to have exceptionally good knowledge about that subject.

    ^u thanks, I'll try elance.
    I also have a rate that I stick to otherwise it's not worth doing.

    I do run a couple of sites and I write content for those, but I want quick money as I have other plans for long term income (IT support biz + Hosting biz), also I'm lazy and I like people that can just give me interesting topics to write about.... Also, I'm crap at SEO :-/

    iwriter is good if you don't mind slumming it until you gain status.
