How to Make $250 Per Day — Or More — Writing Simple Web Articles
From the article:
What is SEO Writing?
SEO stands for search engine optimization. This niche involves writing content in a particular way to drive traffic to a website and/or blog. It’s quick and easy to do, and it pays handsomely!
As an SEO Article Writer, You Can Start Bringing in Clients in Less than 1 Week — Really!
In this ebook, I detail how I went from 0 clients to 4 paid projects in less than one week writing SEO articles — at $25 per 500-word article. I now charge much more ($85), occasionally billing as much as $100 TO $150 per article. See my current SEO article writing rates on my SEO writing company’s website.
FYI, many of these articles take me 20-45 minutes to write, translating into a salary of $40-$75/hour. Did you know that on the low end of $40/hour, that equates to an annual salary of over $70,000 ($40/hour x 35 hours/week x 52 weeks/year)?
And, I’m not the only one who has experienced this kind of success. Below are case studies and actual testimonials of other freelancer writers who have done the same thing — in the same amount of time. One is a college student who landed 4 clients just a few days after buying the ebook — and went on to quit his job waiting tables soon thereafter.
There are many claims of making good money writing articles specific to Search Engine Optimization, but I have found most of the content mills don't pay much...most of my experiences have found that they pay around one cent per word.
Here is one of the case studies:
SEO Writing Case Study #2: College Student Who Lands 4 SEO Clients in 2 Days
SEO Work Success!!! (Title of the email): Received 4/15/2008
I just wanted to share with you my story, briefly. I am currently a 5th year senior in college, and I’ve been running a (failing) copywriting business for the last year, trying to get work from local businesses in the area. I stumbled across your website last week and bought your eBook because it seemed interesting (and was only 10 bucks*). After reading it, I decided to give SEO writing a try.
*This was the introductory price of the ebook.
This afternoon (Monday), I sent out 24 emails to companies requesting work after setting up an SEO page on my website (he listed his website). Within an HOUR, I had one email requesting samples, and a phone call requesting my services! Within twelve hours, I had FOUR companies asking me to write for them!!! (emphasis added) I’m officially a writer now!
And, because I serve tables for a living, replacing my income won’t be that hard! By the end of this week, I should know whether or not I can go freelance FULL TIME! (emphasis added) And I just wanted to send you an emphatic “thank you” for providing me the blueprint for this. The guy that called me today said I was “in the right profession” right now. I have a profession! And I don’t graduate for another month!
I am terribly thankful that this is working, and I can’t wait to see what other work I can dig up this week. Thank you so much for providing direction for my freelance writing! If there’s any way I can repay you, let me know!
