I actually came across the freelance writing opportunity by accident. Several year ago, I was looking for solutions on
how to make money online
because I was looking for a change of pace, and wanted to spend more time with my family.
I have always loved to write; however, I never dreamed that I could make a living doing it. Since I have a Master's degree in English Literature and a B.A. in Spanish and English, I always assumed that the only way to make a living was to teach, which I enjoyed.
I did very well as provider of freelance writing services. In fact, once I went full-time, I matched my salary as a teacher within a few months. I had the chance to build a profile and portfolio and to get references from satisfied customers, and to decide which kind of writing that I preferred.
The only problem with being a provider is that it takes so much time to bid on projects and only a fraction of the bids are awarded. So, I started looking for another option.
I decided that if I offered my services on a website, I would get qualified targeted traffic people who were ready to invest in freelance writing services. I spent a lot of money launching websites and trying to get qualified traffic. In the end, I had opened and closed a couple of blogs because none of them made money.
I was about ready to give it up when one of clients introduced me to Site Sell and their awesome website builder Site Build It! I was amazed by the low-cost of a directed website building tool that came so highly recommended, and they offered a money-back guarantee, so I decided to give a whirl.
I was able to build a website myself that actually gets traffic and produces income, even with my limited site building skills and technical knowledge, for less than a dollar a day.
When using the guided process of building my first site, I learned so many things about internet marketing. The great thing was the suggestions were applicable and practical, far beyond the tips and techniques that I learned in a high-dollar internet marketing source. Now, I offer freelance writing services through this website which is diversified so that my income isnt solely based on the time-consuming services that I provide. I have also opened other websites based on my interests and I make money from them as an infopreneur and affiliate marketer. I am doing what I love and making money online from the convenience of my own home.
No more scams and no more bidding and searching for jobs.
