    Need original content?
    I have a friend who would like to work at home. She writes well and is interested in writing original content for sites.

    How would I help her get started in doing this?

    Ideas?

    There are plenty of freelance sites around where quite a lot of content writing contracts change hands. Easy to sign up and make bids on projects.

    elance, getafreelancer, guru are just some.

    SSanf:

    Probably depends on what she's looking for. Does she want a consistent gig with a specific site where she writes multiple pieces over time or does she want to write a single piece and sell it to multiple sites? Does she have broad expertise or specific areas of interest?

    I need some western fiction, and western poetry, pay is $50 a shot for accepted pieces. If she is interested, email me at tarpguy@bluemarble.net .
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    elbowcreek, thank you, I will let her know.

    What I think she could do is talk with webmasters needing content and see what they need. She got very good grades in school on her term papers, B+s to As, so I do think she is up to the task. But, I would have to think it would be a sort of general knowledge thing and that she would need to research the topic that is wanted. She has excellent command of English and an exceptional vocabulary.

    Thank you all for the ideas. I just want to help her out.

    One thing she could also do is write few original articles for free or can also post the articles to articles directories or as mentioned above to the freelance communities. If the content is good, she'll get more work in no time

    SSanf, if you really want to help her, teach her how to build a site with Adsense and publish it herself. Then she can make a very good income over and over again. If you can write good content, you shouldn't sell it. If you sell content, you have to keep on writing to have an income. With Adsense you have income for every article all the time.

    I agree. But, most people just don't get it nor will they think long term. They want to do a task and get paid , NOW!

    Working on speculatuion isn't for everyone.

    Of course, the items would need to be approved before purchase but, still, that seems less risky to most people.

    Please contact me at affmgr@elearners.com

    I will need to know her age and marital status.
    This is important for the writing job we have in mind.

    Mike, I sent you an e-mail.

    I think she is mostly into writing informational articles.
