    Hey everyone this is my first post here. I've been scoping out the scene for about a month now, great stuff on here. I was impressed by tv's tips and resource list for writing articles online to make a few hundred $$ a week. Signed up with textbroker and 24 hours later I've got $18 bucks in my account lol. Sad amount yes, but its a start right? So, what's next?? Do I scale up? Look at residual writing? It feels like a lot of work for peanuts, 3 articles took me two hours+ to complete. That time can be spent more efficiently, no?

    I've been dabbling with IM for years, but always went into every project with a half-assed attitude, so the result was usually half-assed. 8 months ago I began seriously looking for good opportunities to make $100 a day(my goal number to start)

    Is there a better way? Or is this the life of an online writer? TB rated me a 4star writer to start, the pay per article is still pretty low, but the site is very professional. Should I be writing for several sites?

    Niche P.

    You made money and you still need advice. Keep typing and submitting till your fingers bleed. You've made more money than some people have made in 2 years online.

    Good Luck!!

    Great points. I havent looked into spinners much but maybe I should. What do you think about minisites in targeted niches and driving traffic to these minis using article marketing? You could monetize these with your own ebook, one for every minisite.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the tip on textbroker, I saw that and just now signed up with them.

    I saw another post here about fiverr, and I wrote 9 articles for people there, but that just got me $36 after their commission. It definitely looks like you can easily make more money for the same work with textbroker.

    I have pretty much your same plan. I want to get money in the bank from doing freelance writing for other people, then reinvest that money doing clickbank projects of my own. Maybe buy AMR. Good luck to you!

    You guys are a part of a very low percentage of people who actually take action (and then go on to succeed making decent money).

    Best of luck with everything :)

    Fiverr is great as an additional revenue stream. Everyone here is correct, diversifying is crucial. Not just online but off as well.

    I am currently forecasting a profit of $350 this month from fiverr, its a great way to make money to start off, and you can also find some excellent quality writers if you look deep enough.

    Crank up a service thread and once you get rocking, outsource some work and really rake it in.

    Those are some seriously newbie questions :rolleyes:man, try doing a search on these very forums for the answers you're looking for. You need to understand the absolute basics before you jump in to swim with those big, scary sharks. I lurked on here for a while and found countless nuggets of internet marketing wisdom. BHW is a truly great place to learn about making money online.

    UPDATE: After having to wait a day for textbroker's editors to review my 5 articles, I quickly got back to work writing articles. I outsourced some work by hiring out writers from elance. This took a while, as I wanted to get a good luck at each potential writer's work. After settling on three gentleman from the Philippines, I began accepting work at textbroker.

    That first day of working with a team I pumped out 6 articles myself (took roughly 3 hours to write, edit, and submit to tb). I then spent four hours sending work to my writers, and of course, editing their finished articles.

    NOTE: Make sure you select good quality writers to work with as this cuts down on the time it takes to edit their work. So, after a little over 24 hours, here are some $$ numbers:

    Published 6 articles myself (averaged $6.40ea) = $40
    12 articles that I outsourced (netted roughly $3 per article) = $36

    Total profit for the day = $75 dollars give or take a couple cents

    I realize this is NOT the BEST use of 7 hours, but its a great feeling to know that making actual money online is far from being just a myth. It is possible but you MUST put some work in-at least initially. Now, I guess I need to scale things up, and then diversify into other methods of IM.

    Ok everyone I have an update!!

    Today's profits have topped the $100 MARK! Yeay for me.

    It did take some work but I can see myself scaling this operation up, and maybe forming a content writer squad to make others projects shine and of course- sell sell sell.

    I don't know. To me it sounds like you went out and built yourself a job that pays $11 an hour. And it is a job you can do from home, with no one you have to call your boss. Plus you can do it anywhere in the world, and work whatever hours you want.

    I think that knowing you have the ability to do this any time you want to may even be worth more than the money you made. I really appreciate this thread. Thanks for sharing this.

    I did come off as ungrateful huh. It is definitely awesome and I should be appreciative. Sometimes it is too easy to become star-struck by the big boys who make over $10K+ per month!

    We need to crawl before we walk. Thanks for the props Cwill.

    AWESOME!! We should never forget the trickle that started the avalanche. I think article writing is a very solid way to get started with this whole make money online business. Don't know why people try to leap off the highest building. GOOD LUCK!

    Yes they pay via paypal and you need to be a US citizen I believe.
