My question was about so many of said articles on YOUR website and how that degrades the quality of your own website, NOT article marketing where it's on OTHER websites. I think what happened to Ezine and the others is prime example about how having an abundance of such articles and content on your own website shows how in the end you're looking at lower rankings? In the end, all of it on YOUR website winds up devaluing it when they keep tweaking the "quality" filters. So basically, yet again, you sidestepped.

Meh, the thread was about article writing in general, which includes article marketing. I'm done, you're getting too annoying with your constant personal attacks.

This is the same vicious circle in any job. You can't get experience without a job and you can't get a job without experience.

Chin up, just secure some smaller jobs and work your way up to the big ones.

Have proof. Get experience. Do whatever you can to get experience.

Write, write, write. Get your content published somewhere on the web. Start your own blog and write on it a few times a week. Write about a topic that the companies you want to work for are interested in.

For getting experience, well, that involves some more writing. See if you can do some guest blogging on sites and link back to the companies that you want to work for. If it takes doing some free work, go for it if you have the time.

Same thing happened in my life in the beginning. Landed in my company for SEO, but later become a Content Writer.

Portfolio is really a good idea from my point of view.

Having quality contents are enough to get traffic unless yours is already a popular one. Not in that case, you have to market it as well.

Find a way to build your own writing portfolio, then work for less than the average salary. Also, sell yourself as someone who will work twice as hard because of your status as a beginner.

How do you think? Thank you for your advice.
As the owner of a company that provides web content and gets enough that I can pay my writers well over $5 per article, I can tell you that based the grammatical and phrasing errors I see in the quote above, I would not hire you. For instance:
  • "they still want to know how experience I am" - should be "how experienced I am"
  • "I got an idea to write the good articles.." - entire sentence poor phrasing
  • "How do you think"? - should be "What do you think?

I'm not saying this to be mean, but if you want to write for an English-speaking audience, you need to improve your understanding of the English language. Just because you can speak enough English to be understood, doesn't mean that you can write quality content.

How? Read. Read books by American and English writers. Listen to American and English radio and television.

If you want to get started writing, write articles for the article submission sites (like EzineArticles, etc). They have gotten pickier about grammar and phrasing, so only articles that are well written will be approved.

However, the more articles that get accepted the larger your portfolio. Then when you do apply for a paying job you can point potential clients/employers to your articles already posted online.

I do wish you the best.

Insistant marketing might be very efficient. Here you either make a potential client fed up with you, or they realize your ambitions (surely enhanced by the skills) and hire you. Make a portfolio of works (no matter if they are published anywhere). make people like your texts.
