Hey everyone! Tim Anderson here from Marginal Boundaries. If you don’t know who I am already, I’m a full-time travel blogger, keynote speaker and presenter who has spoken at such events as the Last Tuesday social media and marketing convention in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and TBEX, the world’s largest travel blog convention, in September of 2014 in Cancun, Mexico. You can read more about my wife and I and what we do at our Work With Us page as well as via our Press Kit over at the website.
When I started this career in January of 2008, I personally had no idea that the profits could be this good doing something that is so easy and doesn’t require a degree or 15+ years of experience. But here’s the thing: it’s not only real, it’s absolutely doable and you can start doing it right now, with no previous experience, no background necessary, no degree and no hassles.
50 dollars an hour, minimum, writing about everyday topics like grooming dogs, changing oil in a car, painting a house, cooking food, sewing clothing, building furniture. Things which you already either know how to do or can easily research on the Internet using your preferred search engine. No journalist research, no interviews, no time wasted cold-calling and querying.
This eBook takes you deep into the heart of writing for content mills and other digital media publications and clients and how to make a minimum of 50 dollars per hour while doing so, which is almost double upper management wages for some places in the United States, according to sites such as CareerBliss which show that branch managers for Bank of America make an average of 57k a year, or $27.4 per hour when broken down into 52 working weeks at 40 hours per week.
And you can do this without ever having written a word in your life, without ever earning a college degree, using only the knowledge in your head and your ability to research topics on the Internet and write about them. Without ever querying, cold-calling, waiting or dealing with a kill fee after months of hard work on a particular piece.
Included are screenshots of paystubs and over five hours of Camtasia footage showing me making between 55 and 75 dollars an hour for various online new media publications, as well as over 100 dollars an hour on editing projects for companies such as Dremel.com.
And it’s not just me. You can read about other people who have achieved the same type of success with content mills, such as this article written by Dan Fletcher over at the New York Times where he talks about making $60 per hour writing for Demand Studios, one of several content mills out there, or the eBook Demand Studio Secrets written by Kent Ninomiya, which takes people behind the scenes with one of the largest content mills on the market.
If you’ve read The Expat Guidebook, you know my bio. I’m a mid-western redneck who worked in construction for 15 years with the family business as a ceramic tile and natural stone contractor and installer before the economy tanked and the global crisis forced me to find a new career path back in 2007. I never finished high school. I never went to college. And yet here I am, living in various countries around the world, making a living with my online income. If I can do this, without any college education, without finishing high school, anyone can do this.
