"There are some things we're trying to prove over the next 12 months. One is that we can replicate what we've done in New York and D.C. and do it in a bunch of other cities," McLeod said. "The second is ... to build an efficient business model, which probably won't actually be advertising, and it won't be subscription—it will actually be a sort of in-app purchase."

Mechanical Turk is Amazon's take on micro-jobs. These are small miniscule-jobs that you can do for other people, which they call HITs, or Human Intelligence Tasks. These are super simple tasks that anyone can do. Some examples are listing off some URLs with certain kinds of images for one cent, or recording a few phrases with a microphone for 6 cents.


You are probably familiar with stock photo sites. These allow people like bloggers to purchase photos that they can legally use on their websites. For example, I have a subscription to DepositPhotos.com, which I use to source nearly all the images on this blog. It costs me $89 a month, but it means I can download 10 images a day, every day, and use them legally on the blog. There are many other stock photo sites, including the big names such as Shutterstock and iStock.

You might want to consider fashion illustration. Take a look at this article because it might surprise you to know that magazines more and more are looking for pure artistic drawings for their designs. Photographers have dominated this field for a while, but now they are looking to hire artists who can draw and present a more subjective view than a photograph would.

Walk around your neighborhood or town and I’m sure you’ll see tons of great local businesses with terrible design. However, with increasingly easy-to-use tools like Adobe Illustrator, Venngage, Stencil, and Visme, just about anyone with a creative mindset and a good amount of motivation can start making money online by being a graphic designer for local companies.
Use dating sites that you're currently on to get referrals and earn money from a dating affiliate program. Be careful not to violate the sites rules about posting links. Create a text link in your profile description and recommend the site to the members. This is a great way to get affiliate commissions because a lot of people are interested in trying new sites if the one they're using isn't working out for them. When other members see that you're a real member of the site and not a spammer, they're more likely to follow your link and sign up.

Hi, I have a shop on Etsy, currently designing t-shirts via CustomInk and the only problem is that it’s expensive itself, so it forces me to set prices high so that I can still make a profit. Obviously these high prices most likely make people turn away. Are any of these sites good for designing shirts and then selling them on a different site for a more reasonable price?
I’m curious what kind of referral arrangement you have in which you make money from it. I have gone back to work full time after having been freelance for a while and I am constantly referring people to other designers who are friends when I don’t have the bandwidth for a side project. I’ve always thought I could/should make money on these referrals but never was sure how to set it up. Thanks for your advice.
An alternative which is very popular in the blogging community is affiliate marketing, where you sell other people’s books and products on your blog, and they give you a commission for every item you sell. This is great for digital products because the production costs are so low that most merchants are happy to pay large commissions, often 50% or even more.
You can also create tees, either with your designs or the designs of others. I created a simple t-shirt that cost $14.20, then added a design for $4.50, so the cost to make the shirt was $18.70. At that point, you tack on your commission — whatever amount you'd like based on your design and what you think you can earn. I would stick around the same pricing as the other sites to stay competitive, so I chose a commission of $4.00 per shirt, bringing the selling price up to $22.70. Selling 50 shirts would net me a profit of 200 dollars.

While Etsy is fantastic for handmade goods that you’ve already created, if you’ve got killer designs that would look good on phone cases, t-shirts, or even wall hangings, pillows, and duvets, you can sell them on Society6 without paying anything to start. Society6 lets artists upload their designs and create their own shops where they choose what products their designs can be used on. That means one design can be used to make a whole range of awesome products that are printed and shipped on demand whenever someone buys from you. With top creators making thousands every month just from selling their designs.
Video is growing like crazy. And more and more people are looking for professional help cutting their raw footage into viral-worthy content. If you have the right software and a bit of skill, you can easily make money online as a video editor. Check out these article of Fstoppers on how to become an online video editor and then look for relevant jobs on Mandy.com, Creative Cow Job Search, or ProductionHub.
The sites must already have members or no one will join – This is the big problem in this niche; no one is going to join a site that doesn’t already have members.  You can’t just throw up a new Website and say, “This is a dating site.  Come join” if there’s no one already there.  People join dating sites to meet people and they’re not going to meet people if there’s no one there to meet.  I can show you how to avoid this problem as well.
With drop shipping, you’re effectively partnering with a manufacturer or wholesaler to sell their products. This way, you don’t pay upfront costs to buy inventory, aren’t sitting on unsold items taking up expensive warehouse space, and don’t have to deal with shipping the products yourself. You simply create your site, fill it with drop shippable products, and drive in customers, with almost everything else done for you.

Of course, you get a better result if you have your own website, which provides information about online dating. If you have small programming skills, then it’s best to make a full-fledged website about dating. It is not necessary to make a steep one. You can code just 5-15-pages with a simple design and start advertising the required sites, using links or banners. You can create a special section on the site, in which there will be descriptions of the dating services whose partner you are and links to them.
One of the big focuses for me this year is more video content. I love making videos (sadly my camera broke and I’ve been scrambling for a replacement since). But making and sharing Youtube videos can be a good way to not only teach what you know, but if your audience is large enough, you might be able to use it as a marketing channel for your own creative ventures, or even to generate sponsors or ads to help out.
There’s a ton of information out there for anyone looking to create a traditional scalable business. And there’s no shortage of incubators for tech startups in search of money and mentorship.

I’ve seen drawing sell on the internet that have sold for up to a thousand dollars per drawing. What if I told you it’s possible for you sell your drawings or photos and can make a hundred or even two hundreds dollars for each drawing?

Well I’m not a drawer but I have friends and family who both make money online either with their drawing’s or photos they own.

Be certain that you do have the rights to some of your old work if clients have paid for it. If a customer has exclusive rights to your designs by contract, then you can dump those plans – there is nothing you can do with them. In the future, develop contracts that provide for non-exclusive reproduction rights, at least for some of your designs that do not directly relate to a client’s brand, like a logo design.
