    Yes, you can make good money writing articles. I suggest you create a thread in the Warriors for Hire section. Seems to be the quickest way for new writers to get exposure and clients.

    You could also choose to sell PLR rights to the content you create, so that you could sell it over and over again.

    Good luck!

    If you want quick money, you can write for other for like $5/500 words. However, if you are willing to invest, you can try article marketing

    You can make good money writing articles. There are a lot of ways to make money writing content ... write and sell PLR (sell over and over), write unique content and sell each piece only once (higher pay per peice), write for residual revenue (get paid month after month for the same content), freelance for newspapers, etc.

    Hope this helps.

    You can make good money writing articles but a) you need to be a decent writer with good spelling and grammar, b) you need to be reliable and deliver when you say you will and c) for your own sake, charge a fair price for your work. Otherwise, a 9 to 5 job will be really appealing! :-)

      This is also something I am considering doing later in the new year. If I could make about $1,500 per month, I would be very happy. What is difficult is knowing what to charge per article/word and then whether I could write the required amount in the necessary time period. I find with some of my own articles I can churn out some while others can be quite slow due to research. Basically, it's what Audrey has said above.

        I've made $1500 a month working about 4 hours a day writing articles. (Now granted, I did that through Demand Studios and Bright Hub, not a private client).

        However, I did find one private client on Craigslist who paid me $3000 for a one-month job. So that was pretty nice.

    I do - I work for Demand Studios, Break Studios and Bright Hub. You can have almost as much work as you can handle at Demand Studios as long as they accept your resume and writing sample.

    ^^^^^^^ Check a few posts back - Audrey Harvey - check her signature - excellent report on writing articles for magazines and it's only $4.97 - brilliant report and this type of writing will earn you a lot more than writing general articles for internet marketers!

    Yes, but it really depends on so many factors. You can work for Demand Media and make $15 or more per article, but you need to be very productive to make a decent living at it. Some websites like Lovetoknow and Wisegeek pay slightly more. Seed.com is a joke. Basically you do the work and then they decide if they want to pay you. You can also find freelance jobs at freelancedaily.net. Writing for magazines is more lucrative so you can certainly do both while you gain experience.

      Without even giving decent guidelines as to what they are wanting in an article! I'd not recommend Seed.com to anyone. I agree it's a joke, but it's not the writers who are laughing!

      I don't think anyone's mentioned Constant Content yet. Some writers have found refuge from ridiculous $5 per page rates at CC.

      And a couple have mentioned writing for magazines, but that's a whole nuther world from internet writing. If you want to write for magazines, it's EXTREMELY unlikely you'll be able to develop fast income that way. It takes a lot of time, effort and committment (and maybe a bit of luck!) to start getting regular assignments as a freelance magazine writer.
