I would soon be venturing into freelance writing. As Advisor pointed out, the prospect does look promising. There are sites like elance.com that are choc-a-bloc with freelance writing projects open for bidding. And the membership fee is nominal too, $ 10 I suppose, so start-up costs won't be much of a concern. The nominal membership fee does help in keeping away non-serious wannabes, those who only see the money coming in their fantasies and are not willing to go the extra mile for it. And the escrow provision is a good safeguard against frauds. I would also be on the lookout for good affiliate products that I could be promoting, copywriting for the same, as I've noticed in many sales letters for products online, a good copy that hits the prospect's hot buttons (focuses on their needs and solutions to their problems), does increase the conversion rates substantially.
