Hi people,

I have been on this beautiful platform for one month now. I tried my luck commenting on various posts in the quest to get a client but what muddles me most is how to get a potential client who pays well. Every now and then I get clients who pay not more than $3 for 500 words, which is too less. This question always surrounds me whenever I come on this forum. I have six years of experience as a content writer but recently i joined this forum. Can anyone help me out?

Regards

I have had clients who pay well from WarriorForum in the past, but most of my steady work comes from freelance sites like Odesk. I haven't had any clients from BHW though, I don't think this is all that common of a hangout for high paying clients who need content, here they are looking for more "outsourced" stuff that they can buy for cheap.
 
@Rob I tried my luck on odesk. There too i had to cut a sorry figure, as the clients paid miserably, as if writers are their slaves. I recall one incident, wherein I wrote a sample article for a client on odesk, going by his commitment that he will pay $1 per 100, finally he paid $3 for a 500 word sample. :( I don't want to quit and i have been trying all way out but things are not materializing.

I also write for odesk. They are the safest freelancing site I have known because there is a contract and most clients really pays but they pay too low to be a source of steady income. The work is not also stable even if you have more than 2 clients.

Yes there you go. I agree with you that there are projects on odesk but they pay really low and i have had bitter experiences in the past. After working on several low paying projects I am fed up because I feel my efforts are going in vain. So, now i am just looking for potential clients, who can afford paying what I deserve.
 
You should try to get into writing sales copy. If you are good in that you can charge far more then $100 per sales letter.


Thanks. This seems to be a good deal :). But then again potential clients come into play:(. I still ponder what can writers do in order to make clients value their efforts. What is your say on this?
 
I think you just answered your own question.


Did not get your point. Can you please elaborate what you meant? I am looking for potential clients who pay at least $1 per 100 words and a client paying $3 per 500 words is not a good paying client. What is your say on this?
