Writing articles for warriors saved my butt (plus: a few things to consider)

Hey Warriors!

I hope you're having a great start to your weekend! This is how article writing on the Warrior Forum saved my butt.

In the last couple of months I did a good bit of traveling and overextended myself financially (read: wine, chicks and jiu jitsu). While I do have a few passive income streams, I have expensive tastes

Anywho, I decided to offer article writing services (which you can access via my sig). I offered a few review copies, really took my time and did a great job and people began contacting me. I made several hundred dollars in a few days.

To tell you the truth, I actually bit off more than I can chew! Thing is, I have no patience for crappy articles and it takes me an hour AT LEAST to write a 500 word article that requires any kind of research. So it only takes 1 bulk order to book me for 3 days straight. As a result, I had to give refunds to some of my clients and reneg on their writing assignments. That felt really awful...

Here's what I learned:
  1. Article writing is extremely difficult when done well
  2. It takes a lot of time (at least 1 hour per article)
  3. Take on one or two clients at a time MAX
  4. Charge competitive rates and always deliver the goods
  5. Find something more lucrative than article writing!

IMers will always need content so if you need funds, article writing'll be there for ya! Personally, I think the cost/benefit ratio sucks serious juju beans. Just one man's opinion. :-)

Have a great weekend!
