I am an article writer. And to admit I am one of those who usually come in go when it comes to writing. I got scammed many times by clients who would ask me to write in bulk and then run away with my articles. Now that I am about to finish my college, i havefinally decided I would pursue my online career. Here are my steps. 1. logged back in to my Odesk account and other freelancing sites. (i prefer to work with them because there is a lesser risk of getting scammed) 2. Since I am on a newbie status, I figured out that I have to build my reputation first until I can get good clients 3. I offered to write free articles for some of them in exchange of a 5 star feedback. 4. Orders started rolling in. Currently making $20 for a max of 3 hours in front of my computer. NEXT PLAN.. Scale up by investing on a website that I will offer writing services.. What do you think guys?
