    This is where I'd start.

    Then read this one.

    Just to warn you, there are those on this forum that SWEAR SEO is the bane of copywriting. While I tend to follow that, I've also got to say that Google knows what a page is about, even if you're not stuffing with keywords. So copywritten pages CAN and DO rank well for specific searches when the page gives QUALITY info on that topic.

    I'd just like to second scheda on the SEO thing. It's Google's job to know what a page represents. So if you're writing a sales letter which also gives good information (like TheLazyMarketer), then you can hope to get some SE traffic. I've seen many product websites having an article section, which provides information, and also advertises the main product.

    I'd start by hitting the space bar after a punctuation mark and properly phrasing my posts.

      LOL.

      Seriously though, spelling and grammar is a big one. You'll definitely want to work on that. You'll also want to take Scheda's advice. Really, that's all you need at this point to improve yourself. Good luck.

    I tend to agree with what Bob Bly wrote about sites like GAF in Secrets of a Freelance Writer:

    I advise you to completely avoid www dot elance dot com, www dot Goober dot com and all other Web sites promising to find writers work online. They are a complete waste of time. Clients who put jobs up for bid on these sites are, almost without exception, all price-buyers. They are shopping for the low bid, and are not looking for quality, experience, credentials, or any other advantage you may offer.

    Therefore, if you respond to bid requests on www dot elance dot com, you will be outbid every time if you charge your normal rates, and will consequently never win any job.

    If you don't know why your OP contained bad grammar, start with a course on grammar. If you do know, then take a course in proof reading.

    Here are some links to copy writing articles. And a few more. And yet more. And more.

    Good luck. Be sure to return and tell us how you're getting on
