With the increased level of bidding by writers on online job sites, and employers able to find writers for as little as less than a dollar for an article, it is not a surprise that there quite a number of people who may not see how writing could be a viable source of income.
The truth is, there are people making thousands of dollars a month from freelance writing, and that is not even the best part. They don't have to bid for the assignments they do, they actually sometimes have to turn down some of them.
How do they do it? It’s simple, just as it is believed that good things come to those who wait, these professional writers know that for you to get at the level they operate at, you need to have a lot of patience and be willing to start small. Also they like give their clients the best quality of service from the very start. And once a client gets high quality work from a professional for a job that was lowly paid, he/she becomes more than willing to work with the person again even though at an increased charge.
Most people are deceived by the low pay the employer proposes and believe that the client cannot afford to pay well. They take the job do it amateurishly and move one to other new jobs, not realizing that they have missed on a very good opportunity to market themselves and grow their client base. These small projects are usually like low cost training for their future employees, and them from there they can work with them full time having known the quality of work they deliver and are willing to pay them handsomely for their work.
There are writers who will earn hundreds of dollars per article with their clients writing articles that get published and get numerous page reviews.
Therefore, when you win your next a dollar an article job, do it professionally and you will break through the multitude of others who cannot see beyond, in to the world where writers get hundreds of offers instead of making hundreds of job applications, choose among the offers they are given, instead of waiting to be chosen from among several other applicants, and earn a good full time income, not a painstaking menial income.
