I need to make about $4000 a month so I can quit my job
Has anyone achieved this?
I wouldn't say that this is not doable, but it's gonna take a shitload of work, and you're gonna need at least 8-10 accounts every month if you don't want them to send you tax paperwork. i think the limit is like $500.
in my experience, the average payout for articles is between $3-7 per article. So you're looking at writing about 1000 articles a month.
you'd be better off using AC to make a smaller amount and then using that to re-invest into other areas of online marketing like PPC.
you'll get much better returns and won't have to work as much.
Yeah, so far, I have noticed I get about $3 per article. I outsource them at $1 apiece.
I figure if I did this 5 days a week, I would have submit 100 articles each day, which means I would be doing nothing but this.
I hate my job, but the main reason I want to quit is to focus more on my business. But this would be defeating the purpose
exactly. and you have to take into account that even if you submit 100 articles a day, not all 100 will get accepted every single day.
and how long can you right 100 different articles a day? you're gonna run into one hell of a writer's block(or your workers will)
you should really use AC for some quick cash - like $500 a month - and re-invest this into more profitable business ventures.
why don't you try affiliate marketing? you can make $4000/mo from affiliate marketing and not spend any money. it will take some effort, but it's doable and much more predictable than AC.
I'll give you something that will help with your affiliate marketing. It's a good read for someone like you.
Thanks, I've actually read it already.
And yes, I am making money from affiliate marketing. But it's not enough to quit my job.
Gonna start looking at ways to sell articles at e)lance and other places
i see. well more power to ya, but selling articles is not really a long term method for making big paychecks.
but good luck.
Some people are buying SUPER BULK articles and sell off to many people.
this way will make you more richer faster...if you know what are some of the places to sell and also the correct way to do it... Just imagine every business day you manage to sell of 500 articles...how much you can earn...
Any idea where to look for those?
getafreelancer, elance, etc...or you can buy from BHW forum here...
It'll be A LOT of work but i think it is possible.
How many articles considered as SUPER BULK articles ?
How much would that cost?
if based on $1 each...that would be $500 bucks...
but it is better to ask for discount...lol $0.50 each article...
Did you get a good deal, Peter?
Nope..i am NOT focusing in this method...i am doing CPA...
unless you're proven in your field and have gotten quite a few elance jobs under your belt you're doubtfully going to be able to get a job and may have to take a risk that you'll get accepted to 2 or more when competing for a bit, just like on rentacoder. I'll be posting a primer on jobs that are actually temp-to-hire or hire that accept applications via the 'net and are telecommute only, including some telemarketing and also all the sites I've found similar the rentacoder with reviews. I'm fairly sure the number of legitimate relatively busy sites numbered around twenty for English-oriented business and one thing that sucks is getting your bid submitted and the date goes by and nothing. I was lucky enough to have a few people gather that I spoke and wrote English more creatively and in a better fashion grammatically (sp?) than the Korean and Indian folks that I compete against for PHP, tech support and other jobs.
I'd say that with a good amount of small jobs done, certifying on elance and a portfolio and proven reference points for completed work you can snag minor jobs on elance but it may not be steady. The advantage to getting the minor jobs on elance and all the certs is that you'll end up being able to snag a job that pays as good or better for part time (25 hour) or full time (40-50 hour) weekly work for months. Price ranges have been downright desperate for good translation and with decent language skills and softwares and online utilities you might make short work of these jobs. Writing jobs are highly competitive and without something that will not only catch the eye of your prospective employer but prove to them that you can cover any job in the contract that _might_ pop up and that you are a dedicated, loyal and hard-working individual, you're going to just lose your twenty dollars you pay for elance subscription or have small returns on it.
In any case, make sure you focus on spreading out your income opportunities, continuing to write for AC, hunt for sites that you can bid for jobs on and keeping in mind on freelance sites if you get your bid accepted you'll lose out if you can't complete the job by the deadline and receive severely negative feedback and try new things with your affiliate marketing, PPC sites and other things as well as keep those things that are steady income for you in-line with minimal effort.
Good luck to you all, if you choose these routes as I have.
@sre94 - where did you find a quality outsourcer for $1 per article? mind sharing?.... I have not had any luck.. everytime I ask for an example I get shit I think my 3 year old cousin could write...
But how likely it is to not lose money for $1 dollar per article.
I have found a good writer, who would write me 100 articles 400 words and the package would cost 100$ but I mean, would i succeed?
Just looking for some bits to fill my PPC losses ...
Btw - how many accounts you would suggest to make for AC and how many articles per day, I would not like to set of any flags. And one paypal account, wouldnt that be suspicious? And also should i clear cookies, change ip or etc before logging into other account?
you can try looking at getafreelancer.c0m or elance.c0m
When and what pay method does AC pay by ?
zzz...this has been answer a Billion times
Average time 1 to 2 business days and paypal only !
