    Hey,

    So here's the deal. I want to make money. Make Money bad. I'm not looking for anything for myself specifically but do have an end goal to share whatever I have with my family, loved ones and to some extent my community. So the question became, how do I make money? I have wondered that for over a year now. I go to University full time during the year and take accelerated spring classes in May and June so I can get into Med School quicker. Point being I have restricted time to work the type of jobs my friends work.

    This is where my Blackhat days begin. I realized that I posses a pretty solid ability to speak, read and write English so to take advantage I have decided to take the article writing route and hope to score big from it.

    In this thread I'd like to document my aspirations, struggles and hopefully one day success. So please sit back and enjoy my story, I assure you that I will do everything in my power to make this thread worth reading.



    Current Objective:
    • Create Solid Base of Costumers


    Plan of Attack:

    • Offer two 400-500 originally worded documents on Fiverr to establish my superior writing ability
    • Contact people through Fiverr who have purchases similar or inferior (in terms of how much you get, ex. One 400 word article) and share my service to them.
    ​



    Fiverr Username: UpbeatWhiz (Will not direct link to any of my writing gigs in this thread but as general knowledge that is me).


    Comments and suggestions on how to improve are welcome and thanks for viewing :D

    Thanks for the kind words guys!

    Tasks Completed Today:

    • Started pushing my Fiverr Gig. Sent 15 messages to people who have bought similar gigs in the past 2 weeks or have been prior customers.



    Hoping tomorrow I will have some buyers. The issue with Fiverr is only some people (those who are sellers) are the ones you can contact through private message. At times it can be difficult sifting through others gigs trying to find these potential costumers. I found that 90% of people who bought from my competition didn't offer anything on Fiverr so I could not message them. Hoping one day their can be an automated way to message to get rid of this pain in the butt :D! Regardless without hard work and dedication I won't get anywhere so I'll accept it for now.

    At least you came here with a plan and didn't just say "help me make money" or "tell me how to make money" I like the goals and ambition..... Instant Respect :D

    I agree with you. It's irritating to see those " I'm homeless and I need help" kinda posts. We need to make plans and then incorporate them. By doing so, we indirectly inspire a hell lot of people and instill belief that " Success is not a fictitious term", and there is a road which leads to their goals. Keep it up buddy. :)

    God speed the OP in his/her efforts. The first sign of success is in taking action. Given all the info already available on sites like this, the best route is simply to READ first, apply thoughtfully, and then ask questions or give updates on your progress. Asking for more info first is a sign of already being too mired in info-overload/analysis paralysis to get somewhere.

    Hey their everyone, wanted to give my daily update and thank you all so much for the nice words :)!


    June 8th:
    • Woke up to 7 writing gigs.
    • Estimated time to do my gigs was set to 5 days, to "WOW" my costumers I did most of them today. I don't spin or use software so it takes me around 30 minutes usually to do one article

    Goals for Tomorrow:
    • Finish the rest of my articles
    • Message more potential costumers and get things rolling


    Total Profit: $32
    Coustumer Feedback: 13 gigs reviewed so far with 100% positive feedback(this includes work I did before I started documenting here)!!



    Concluding: I feel pretty good today:). Hope to get things rolling even further once my Physiology class ends on the 21st and I can fully concentrate the rest of my summer on this! :D
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Good shit. I'd recommend you take some money that you are making from Fiverr and invest it into opening a writing thread here while you are at it so you can up your rates. With writing it is so easy to burnout quickly, so make sure you are making it worth your while.

    Quick update, I've gotten into the last stretch of finals at University (I'm in an accelerated spring course in Physiology) so I've been studying for that.

    Writing is going extremely well, have found one costumer who has offered to hire me to do 200+ article rewrites ( I don't use spinning software) but it seems like a good start, also found another guy who seems to want constant business. Will be working hard to get more clients once I get back into things (this coming up thursday)

    Cheers and I hope I've inspired people to work hard, it truly pays off!

    Hey thanks man. I'm looking to inspire everyone who reads this. You live once got to work hard to get anywhere in an honest fashion.

    Current Update:
    I'm currently moving forward now that University has ended. I will continue working on Fiverr but at the same time work on developing a business plan to create a proper and sustainable website. The target goal is to sell my service at a premium price to big businesses (so in other words press releases). I strongly believe my writing and comprehension is good enough to get this going. I do plan on hiring others though once I get everything is set up.

    This summer is going to be a great one I believe!

    Please give me your fiverr gig link. or can you work directly? I occasionally need writer to write huge number of unique articles. PLease can you give me your rate per article?
    Rate per article of low quality just unique = ?
    Rate per article of high quality of any topic = ?
    thanks

    I don't want to break forum rules so I can pm you info if that is allowed.



    As for my daily update 4 orders in process. One of my current usual costumers has even given me a tip (purchasing a gig extra designated to a tip) looks like things are going well.

    It is possible to make it big through writing. Some writers charge hundreds of dollars per article.

    I hope you realize the amount of work it will take to establish yourself as a high-priced article writer. If you are serious about building a reputation for yourself, you should start by expanding further than just fiverr. Market your writing services at all the major IM forums. Also look into copywriting which can be extremely lucrative, I was recently quoted at $400 for a single sales letter.

    Good luck.

    Yes of course. I stated in a few posts above that I was working on a website. This idea of copy writing is something I've never put much attention into but, if you can make even a quarter of what you are saying based of a single sales letter then I'll be looking into it shortly. Thank you :).

    Thanks niloydaemons and PinterUser! So to update, since my University has ended business has been pretty steady on Fiverr. Currently have around 4 orders a day which isn't to bad but I'd like to be making more. I'll keep at it and hopefully things get even better. If any one has any ideas on how to get more costumers I'd love to hear it. Regardless I feel blessed about how good things have been thus far!

    Still going strong and business is great! No negative feedback what so ever.

    Current Update:
    I plan on phasing out 2 articles and going to 1 sooner or later. Letting old costumers still get the "old" gig.
