    freelancer.com find work there, DP find work there, expand your business, gain trust on forums, then start selling on forums. simple as that.

    textbroker.com is a fairly decent one. pay isn't great starting out but becomes pretty good if you are an exceptional writer.

    If you're looking to write content for sites.. start by offering to write a few articles for free, to get feedback. Then you can make a BST thread on this site, and have those people leave their reviews.

    Most charge around $1.00 per 100 words. If you're a native english speaker and can write on a wide range of topics, you'll be much more appealing then others that outsource their writing to foreign writers.

    I suggest you offer a $5 gig @ Fiverr and then start your client list building from there.
    Offer them a good sample of your work on whatever they need, like a 400 word article, or something like that for $5. Once they like your writing, you can offer to become their "person-to-go" for their future writing needs.

    Hope this helps :)
