When I started out I had no portfolio, no samples of work and like in any job, it’s hard to convince someone you’re worth hiring if you have no experience. So, I tried content mills. Content mills aren’t quite as prevalent as they once were when I started out. I certainly don’t hear as much about them as I used to. Hopefully, this is because they’ve been stumped by long-form copy and the need for decent writing with less emphasis on keyword stuffed content.
