I write and on off for Constant Content. I'm curious but with standing requests, how many articles do people normally sell? I responded quickly to the Energy standing request (this is the second time I responded and wrote an article). It quickly sold but when I submitted another energy article, it w...

Re: Self-Editing for CC Success

Great tips! I'm a professional copywriter, and I write on and off for Constant Content to supplement my income and make some extra money.

I have sold articles on and off here for the past year. However, I recently had my first experience writing for a public request. I PM'd the client ahead of time and asked her if she liked my article ideas. I received an enthusiastic reply that yes, she did like my ideas! I went ahead and wrote the ...
