As some of you might know the U.S unemployment rate is almost 10% and people would love to make some extra money from home which is why IM is booming right now.
I put an ad on Craiglists under the "jobs writing" section that said something like this.
I'm looking for a few writers to work part time from home. You will be required to write articles of around 500 words on a variety of different subjects etc etc.
I then go on to tell them that I'd pay them x amount per article right into their Paypal account.
In the next week that went by I got around 50 applicants which was way more than I could handle. I found retired poeple that was bored at home and would love to write a few articles a day for some extra cash. I also found a lot of professional writers who work for magazines and newspapers and they just wanted some extra money on the side. WOW! One guy is an exceptional writer and obviously I use him for when I need top quality 500 word articles for my main sites. I also pay him a bit more.
College kids applied also. All these people were native English speakers and they love writing and the idea of making some money from home.
There ya go, if you are ever stuck finding a good writer again try this little technique. You will have to pay a bit more than some of the $3 articles you can find on this forum but it's worth it because remember. This is your business and your content is what make or break you so invest in good content and you'll do great.
