COMPLETELY UPDATED FOR 2017 (THIS EBOOK IS UPDATED EVERY 3 to 4 MONTHS)
From the Desk of Freelance Writer Yuwanda Black
Are you looking for work right now? Do you want an easy way to make money from home that is real — no bull, no fluff, just the facts, please? Then do I have a real career opportunity for you! Read on for how and why.
I’m not guessing, I’m giving you actual facts — and others have had the same results. I’ve been a freelance writer since 1993 (read more on my background below) — and I’ve never made such easy money as this type of writing. Hold on to your seat because if you’ve always wanted to work as a freelance writer, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. The more you read, the more excited you’ll be to start.
I EARNED MONEY THE FIRST WEEK; I’LL SHOW YOU “EXACTLY” HOW YOU CAN TOO!
What if I told you that you could easily start making money your first week as a freelance writer. You probably wouldn’t believe me, and I wouldn’t blame you. But, unlike other types of freelance writing which tends to be very competitive, this type of writing has several things going for it that makes it so popular and easy to get.
Finally, A Real Way to Make Money as a Freelance Writer
What is this type of writing? SEO article writing. And, I’ve been doing it since the fall of 2007. Within a couple of months, I was so busy, I started outsourcing to other freelance writers (and still do). This turned out to be a blessing because it was like making passive income. I get the work, outsource it, invoice the client, and still make a profit. And others who’ve followed my step-by-step instructions are doing so too!
You’ve Probably Already Seen Jobs Ads for This Type of Writing But Didn’t Realize It Paid So Well
What is SEO content writing? Have you seen job ads that read something like:
Sample Job Ad: I am looking for a talented individual that can generate between 10 and 20 articles per day that meet the listed requirements. Articles should be at least 450 words; or
Sample Job Ad: Need a freelancer who can write three 500 words articles everyday. Writer should be proficient with U..S English; articles will cover different topics. We’ll provide keywords and topic; or
Sample Job Ad: Need articles for a fashion blog. Five 350-400 word posts a week. You can write on any topic you want as long as the keyword phrases we provide are included; or
Sample Job Ad: Do you know babies? Need weekly articles for new mom website. Each article should be 400-500 words. Sometimes we’ll provide the topic; other times you’ll be free to write what you want. Looking for one freelancer we can work with on an ongoing basis.
These are all SEO article writing jobs (these days known as simpley “SEO writing jobs”). The articles tend to be short, sweet and easy to write. And, you can charge $50 per article or more for simple blog posts. When I first started in 2007, I charged $25. Now the demand has exploded for this type of writing — and rates have gone up.
More about pricing later. Imagine writing 5-10 of these a day? I’ve written as many as 27– yes, 27 in one day. I was dog tired (and don’t recommend it), but it was worth it.
I don’t blame you if you don’t believe me — yet. I couldn’t either when I first started writing SEO content. But, read on for more. You’ll soon start to understand why it IS just that simple.
Now, let me explain why SEO wriitng is so popular, and can be relatively easy to get.
What is SEO Content Writing?
First, SEO is an acronym for Search Engine Optimization. SEO content (aka SEO articles, SEO web copy, SEO writing, SEO content) is copy that is written specifically to drive traffic to a website and/or blog. This is accomplished using “keyword phrases” (explained below). Following is an example for illustrative purposes.
SEO Article Example
Pretend that you wanted to have an old oil painting restored. To find an art restorer, you would probably go to the internet and type in phrases like “art restorer”, “art restoration”, and/or “restoration of art”. These are keyword phrases.
If you were the owner of this type of business, you would write or hire an SEO article writer to write articles with these keyword phrases. When I first started, SEO articles tended to be short — 300-500 words. Nowadays, longer content is more the norm (750 to 1,000 words). This is why SEO writing rates have inceased.
In order to get an article found, you would insert relevant keywords to help search engines find it when a web surfer typed in what they were looking for. FYI, when a web surfer types in a phrase (eg, “Cheap womens running shoes”), that’s what’s known as a keyword phrase.
Using keyword phrases strategically is what gets an article ranked well so that search engines (eg, Google) can return it high in search results.
Remember, surfers use keyword phrases to find products and services online. Hence, website owners want articles on their site with keyword phrases particular to their industry. If a website owner has a site full of good SEO articles, web surfers will be more likely to find their site online — and order from them.
WHY SEO ARTICLE WRITERS ARE SO IN DEMAND — AND WILL REMAIN SO FOR YEARS TO COME
Websites and blogs need a lot of SEO content (ie, articles and blog posts) because each article or post only uses one or two keyword phrases — at the most. But, as web surfers use different keyword phrases to search, they need lots of different articles with lots of different keyword phrases.
This means continuous work for SEO article writers. Proof?
Internet Marketing: The Explosion of Online Advertising
Professional SEO copywriters (aka article writers, web content providers, etc.) will be in great demand for years to come, if the following is anything to go by:
CloudPeeps, a talent marketplace that matches businesses with the world’s top freelance talent, analyzed hundreds of jobs to determine the most in-demand freelance skills of 2016 [going into 2017]. What they found was that content production and marketing were in high demand, with over 1,000 Peeps identifying content as a specialty. Some companies posted jobs seeking content strategy or content marketing. Others were looking for bloggers or writers. But they were all seeking the same skills: writing and distribution. [Source: CloudPeeps.com — The top 10 most in-demand freelance skills in 2016]89% of B2B marketers use content marketing.

A new report compiled by FIPP — the Worldwide Magazine Media Association (originally the International Federation of Periodical Publishers) — shows that total internet ad spend could overtake traditional television ad spend on a global level by as early as 2017.
Global advertising revenues have grown by an average 5 per cent year-on-year since the start of the recovery from the world financial crisis in 2010. Total global ad spend is now tipped to reach $700bn by 2019 with digital, and in particular mobile, fueling much of that growth.

eMarketer.com, a leader in online advertising trends, states the following in the press release New Forecast Shows Display on Trajectory to Overtake Search]:
“The internet has become as fundamental as television to advertisers . . . As consumers continue to increase their time spent online and as the resurgent economy continues to bolster ad budgets, we’re going to continue to see an influx of dollars toward the internet. More ad formats, such as video, and more channels, especially social media and mobile, are also key contributors to the spending gains.”
With this kind of money pouring into online advertising, internet marketers are going to rely on SEO copywriters who really understand the intricacies of writing for the web (eg, seo articles). A relatively new niche, it is a rapidly expanding, well-paying profession.
