  1. Great post. I often say that to make more money, freelancers have three basic options:
    * write more for the same clients
    * write more of the same type of thing (e.g. service articles, SEO work, etc)
    * write more about the same thing (writing about the same thing but for different markets).

  2. Resume Creation is great Idea! I have been in this business since 4 years and I found this discipline very unique and great earnings to support my family! It’s not so much difficult to write Resume for others, all you need a knowledge and bit creative skills.
