Hello,
I'd like to start off by saying that I used to have a writing service on fiverr that got about 20-30 sales with 100% positive reviews. I got to level 2 or whatever but after a while the sales started slowing down and eventually stopped altogether. I tried iwriter but the buyers there seemed to be scammers that would just decline every single article. I still had a 4.6 star rating after 5-10 articles but it seems hard to find any work for non premium members there now.

What I want to know is, whats a good place to sell articles? My work is good and I have a lot of past samples etc.

A lot of people tell me that i should start my own site instead of writing articles for others. However, I dont really have any interest in trying to make bullshit micro niche sites that try to sell people crappy products. I wouldnt mind starting an authority site but my interests (fitness, poker, gaming etc.) seem to be too saturated for me to get anywhere

What would you guys suggest?

Regards

Try Elance, there are always people there willing to buy articles. Also try oDesk.

iWriter is a decent site. Just check the requester's approved/declined ratio and you can see who the chancers are.

You could also look at Constant Content and TextBroker.

I just heard of a new site (new to me anyway), scripted.com but I haven't bought any content there yet so can't comment on quality of service. Has anyone else used it?

You will also regularly find people here at BHW looking for content.

Set up a Buy Sell Trade (BST) on this site and offer your services. Figure out what you will and won't write. Charge what you're worth. It will eliminate the tire kickers but keep those who don't mind paying a bit more for quality. People pay for quality content. Outperform and you will not have to worry about business. People will come to you.

I understand that one has to make some kind of membership purchase before being able to set up such a service, is that correct? If so, would you be able to tell me how much it would cost to set such a service up?

Well Im not sure if i want to spend the 30 odd dollars on the BST thread. What about opening my own website to offer my services through? I'm not sure if I'd be able to compete with the well established giants though

Why not write content and use adsense on your website? Promoting products isn't the only way to earn money you know.
