Do Not Get Off the 'Bid for Work' Websites
Bid-for-work websites like Elance, Freelancer and Odesk have become somewhat of a dark, dirty secret for freelance writers, but that is not the right way to look at it. There are a healthy number of freelancers who depend on these sites for their bread and butter, and apart from some crazy clients who want content for pennies and dimes, a large percentage of the total work assignments there are decently priced. In fact, if you do stick around with a particular client, there is every chance that they will hike the price per article, or reward you with a bonus. So don't pull yourself out of bid-for-work websites just yet. If you are just starting out and have no experience or published work to show, bid-for-work sites are again your best bet.
