Re: How to Start Freelance Writing?

I got started by signing up for Crowdsource. (http://crowdsource.com)

Re: Getting Accepted Into Constant Content

I write for Constant Content whenever I have free time. I've only submitted 8 or 9 articles, but they were all accepted without any issues. I've only sold one article, but it went for $40. Not bad...

Re: how can i make money from content creation

I'd highly recommend building a professional-looking website to promote your writing services.

I used to get most of my work through freelance sites and I was lucky if I earned 50-60 bucks in a...

Re: How to best create your writing team?

Re: How Much Should I Pay My Writers

There's really no right or wrong answer to the 'How much does a good writer charge?' question. I know of some pretty good writers that will work for 3 cents a word, but I also know just as many that...

Re: how to write a good article within 60 minutes?

Re: How to make 300 per month with internet marketing?

You could try that. oDesk, Elance, and Fiverr are also popular. I try to stay away from freelance sites but there are tons of people that use them so there must be some money to be made through them.

I think one of the hardest things to do when starting out copywriting is trying to dumb yourself down when marketing to a certain audience.
