    Happy New Year BHW! :D

    Today I decided I wanted to make some more passive income. I already have some working methods that make me money and I am not a noob to making money online. At least I hope I'm not.

    Anyways...Because today is a new year and all, I wanted to set some goals. (Just noticed a batman smiley :batman: ) So Starting today, I will spend most of my time developing a fully outsourced article business that generates 1,000 per week in profit.

    This is one of my many projects of 2012, and I hope it will be successful in the next 12 months.

    Background

    I have some experience running a article business. I had some native writers working at dirt cheap prices so the profit was great. However, my partner -_- got too lazy and started spending, therefore, the business was over. In a short span of 2 weeks, we made around $50/day in profit.

    The Plan
    As stated before, I want to have this business fully outsourced and making 1k per week at the end of the year. I plan to advertise on web master forums, get some ppc ads running, do some viral marketing, video marketing, etc.

    i will be updating the thread daily-weekly stating all the sales and profits I've made.

    Wish me luck BHW and Happy New Year.

    Subscribed. Will be interesting to see how this turns out. I guess the hardest part is finding decent native writers who don't mind working for cheap rates.

    When I've tried cheap writers before, 'native' or not, I've ended up with pretty low quality articles.

    Dude I have no clue what you are talking about but nothing adds up here. you made $50 per day that means you were selling atleast 15 articles a day (15 articles per day X30 = 450articles a month). The best place to get articles is Fiverr atm and that means you had orders for 450 articles a month.

    Lets assume you paid $1 per article and you got $5 per article and lets deduct the transaction fees out of it. How many articles have you been writting in a day to make $50 per day?

    People who would want articles of you would probably know about BHW/ Odesk ,Fiverr or any other site that offers cheap articles. So all of them would know the max they would be paying for an article i.e $5 on FIverr. Lets say you are outsourcing this even for $0.01 per article you would need to write 800 articles a month (or 200 a week) to make the money you have claimed. so stop bullshitting since it looks like you want to sell article writting service next month.
    Cheap native writters? I would call people in UK,US,CA & AU to be the native writters and I bet you that no one from these counries will write an article for even $5. I wish you luck dude

    The entire point of this thread is to document how I am setting up a 1k a week article writing business for passive income. I said that I had a previous article writing biz and we used to make $50/day. Plus i never charged $5/500 words. I sold articles at $10-$15.

    2012 and haters still hatin?

    I know other webmasters know where to get cheap articles, but I don't want to undersell my service. So I'm going to offer quality for a good price. Anyways, thanks for your support...

    I sell 500 word articles for $20 a pop as an SEO. Who in their right mind would sell articles to the cheap asses at BHW when there are so many other ways to sell articles to people who have no clue that $10,$15,$30 or more per 500 article isn't the norm? Some of my writers sell articles at $50 or more. You just have to know the right people and advertise to the right demographic. I made $3400 last month selling just 150 articles. :D

    if someone makes a claim...(which might be legit)and someone else asks legitimate questions/points out possible problems etc with that claim..then people will rummage around in their halfwit cliche box and label legit criticism as coming from mere "haters".:confused:
    Strawman comes to mind..
    Yes..I know..I must be a hater as well..:D

    Although you may be onto something here, that is not passive income... more like running a business that sells a product and buys the product to fulfill orders and then delivers.

    Without having your writers in place I would not be offering the service so my suggestion would be to make sure you have your suppliers in place before advertising at a very minimum.

    I hope it turns into a profitable entity for you, OP, as you have the basics in place and this could be a nice business with all your ducks in a row.

    There are many people out there (offline is a fkin goldmine) that have no clue what an article is worth or even how to write an article. If you want to make money selling articles, start finding people who recognize they don't have the time, the expertise, or the know how to do it themselves. Selling articles at $5 a pop to people on BHW is INSANE, unless you live in a country where $5 will buy you more than a condom and some skittles. Target the right people and you will find that those who know little pay a lot more.
