Anyone can do this, all you need is a computer and the ability to string a sentence together. You can write original articles and submit them to article directories and get paid. You have to apply to these sites and may or may not get turned down. If you should happen to get turned down then just keep plugging away until you find someone to "hire" you.
From personal experience Spin Rewriter is the best! like I still use it today. Its so easy to use (Just copy paste and the program do everything) Because of this tool I managed to schedule content and articles for 3 years, do you know how much time and money I’ve saved?!?! A LOT!!! Also i high recommend you pick their mothly plan if you are still in doubt
