    I want to start an article writing portfolio/website where I do private work for clients instead of working for article mills, but what is the best way to expand my site as to attract worthwhile clients?

    Add fresh content to your site. You can also offer new clients deals or coupons so they want to try your services. This will then get your foot in the door with them so they can give you a testimonial if you ask.

    you could open a marketplace thread here and offer some review copies to get the word out. If you can deliver quality there are plenty of buyers here at bhw

    Took me 2 years to build a portfolio. I started on rent-a-coder. LOL Made horrible money and couldn't survive. Moved to Elance which was just as hard (this was before panda) and then starting pumping out stuff on ehow.

    Finally, I just got a break mainly from a writer buddy sending me a reference. Things got better from there.

    I can tell you that big companies aren't buying from article sites. They buy through editorial services who then hire writers.

    As a writer I would aim to write for high authority websites such as news websites, not too difficult to write on these and you can get a lot of work through them too.
