Consider gallery showings. No, you are not an artist in the traditional sense of the word, but neither (really) was Andy Warhol. Frame up some of those older designs and look for galleries that feature contemporary and post-modern work. Typically, galleries take 50% of the sale price, but that is money you did not have before. And, it is always great to say, when courting clients, that your work has featured in galleries.
More and more companies and startups especially are embracing remote work—where you use online collaboration and communication tools to do your work from wherever you want. And you don’t have to be a 20-something hotshot designer or coder to reap the benefits of working remotely. Many remote positions are for customer support positions or other customer-facing positions that don’t require specialized skill sets.

Now next, you’ll want to pick a WordPress theme from somewhere like ThemeForest, Elegant Themes or OptimizePress. This is the barebones design of your site, which you can then customize with your own branding, copy, and images. That being said, you don’t want to cheap out. It costs less than $100 to buy a theme that will make your website look professional (and you can upgrade to a completely custom design once you get the business going).

OK, now this may seem obvious, but really, I've seen so many dating sites that are just outright generic. It is so important to establish a professional image. This includes your logo and your template choice. If you choose a niche like sci-fi lovers, it's also fun to use a theme like the solar system or stars. Just make sure your site looks super-professional. Branding is going to set you apart from other dating sites that may provide the same niche as you. Branding is what will establish you as an authority site.
If you want to clear some space out in your house and have a big stack of books you’ve been holding onto for too long, you can make money selling your books and textbooks online. Stores like Half Priced Books and others will give you cents on the dollar for each of your current books while you can check what your book is worth by simply entering the ISBN number on Book Scouter.

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.
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. But what about artists who are going solo and getting paid for their art? They’re entrepreneurs, too. How does one go from creating art to getting paid for it?

You know those top-down cooking or craft videos you just can’t seem to get away from these days? There are people out there making a living from them. 78% of B2C companies depend on user-generated content, like those videos, for their marketing campaigns. You can sign up as a creator on a site like Darby Smart and potentially work with brands like Nordstrom, Mattel, and BarkBox.

As someone who's been immersed in a number of online industries for quite some time, I know a thing or two about what it takes to succeed in this arena. However, just like you, I started at ground zero with little knowledge, but a great deal of passion. What I learned along the way were some invaluable lessons from failure that hurt at the time, but helped immensely in the grand scheme of things.
Personally I’ve made networking and joining in group discussions paramount and a great way to meet potential clients. You’d be surprised what people discuss about. Example: a friend invited me to an event totally unrelated to design work recently. There a group was discussing whether to get a customized unique wedding website for one of their friend that is about to get married. My friend introduced me as a web designer and front-end developer and there and then, i landed the job. It wasn’t much pay but the referrals from her and her friends made sure i design on average 4 wedding websites weekly, each comes at about 1500usd [domain renewable after 2 years]. Amazing is an understatement. I never thought about it till i went out and mixed up and it happened, like literally fell into my laps.
You can make money by drawing illustrations at Fiverr - Freelance Services Marketplace for The Lean Entrepreneur You can be up and running within minutes.

Well done and very informative! Considering the original content is a few years old do you have any updates, as far as software is concerned, for developing a dating site? Asking for an opinion as far as WordPress is concerned...just how much "extra" work is involved? I know that most of the elements would be plug-in solutions and each of those has to be managed/updated independently. Have you heard of or experienced yourself issues with incompatibility between plug-in updates?
Do you constantly come up with witty one-liners? Do you dream of the days of Mad Men-style advertising? If you’ve got some branding chops or just come up with imaginative copy, there are lots of opportunities to make money online through company naming and slogan contests. If you think you have a knack for names check out namingforce.com and squadhelp.com. If you dream of coming up with witty copy, try coming up with company slogans on Slogan Slingers and Get a Slogan.
However, like anything else truly worthwhile, apps require a significant investment of your time or money upfront. If you don't have the skills, then you have to hire someone who can assist you in creating a great app. But first you need to come up with an idea that will sell. Do the proper market research and analytics to come up with the right app.
Tired of complex pricing schemes where you’re not really sure what plan is right for you? Binom has kept things very simple. You can choose to pay $99 monthly or, if you prepay for a year at a time, the monthly cost for the license is cut down to $69. In both cases, you get one server, unlimited clicks and domains, and lifetime updates, as well as a 14-day free trial.
Market your course: The beauty of using a course to make money online is that you can continue to sell it for as long as you’d like. Look for niche communities on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Reddit that might benefit from your content. Guest post on relevant blogs and sites. Look for anywhere you might be able to get in front of the right people. With just a few hours a month you can continue to generate sales.
Now, making money online should seem like a pleasurable activity. Why wouldn't we do just about anything to see things through, since it would be a major source of pleasure, right? Wrong. In the beginning, like anything else, we might get really excited about it. We might also set our hopes very high. But that all comes crashing down when we begin to fail.
With graphic design being a growing profession in high demand, the reality is that most templates are being bought by beginners or in-house designers that are more focused on production and technical work than creativity. By building and selling templates in online stores like Envato you can gain a substantial amount of revenue from this growing market.
2. Create a cool graphics and put it for sale on the sites like Envato and Graphic River. Another versions of this - create a bundle of marketing graphics like buttons, CTA, icons, headlines, inforgraphics etc and offer it for sale on JVZOO, ClickBank, Warrior Forum etc offering 50% comissions to affiliates. They will drive the traffic and sales - you will collectt the money and customer list.
For HTML-savvies here's what you need to do: First, convert all tables to div's. This is not a must but it'll improve the script a lot. To do this you will need HTML skills and CSS skills. If you have absolutely no clue what we're talking about, then you should read and understand the basics of HTML and CSS (for an introduction go to www.w3schools.com). Then, when you understand the basics you should at least be able to outsource the work to someone that knows how to convert the tables.
One thing that might be considered a downfall is that although you can set your own prices on your art prints, the rest of the products — such as t-shirts, travel mugs, and throw pillows — have a set price. So you will still earn a profit, but it will be a commission that is paid on their base price that varies depending on the product. For example, t-shirts earn a profit of $2.40, tank tops $2.20, and long sleeve shirts $2.80. Still, with no minimums and no cost to sign up, it might be worth a try if you're an artist. You simply share your unique creator link with friends, family, and followers through email or on your favorite social media platforms and get a cut of their purchase profits.
The osDate script uses templates to determine the visual presentation of the dating site. You don't want to use the default template, it's a total mess. And you don't want to use the ready-made templates from Tufat.com either, they're not really good either. What you need to do is to make your own look and feel. As I have already mentioned, the script is great, but the visual presentation is not very impressive.
Then once you’ve got your domain name and hosting sorted out, it’s time to pick a CMS, or Content Management System, that will let you update pages, build your blog and integrate with all the other services you need. It’s hard to go wrong with WordPress—the CMS powering close to a quarter of the internet. Keep in mind that eventually as you start growing traffic to your blog, you'll be wise to invest in a managed WordPress hosting plan, where all of the settings are custom-tailored and optimized to work particularly well with WordPress-powered websites.
Domain name trading has been around for the last couple decades, and while most slam-dunk names have long been sold off, there’s still plenty of others that you can get your hands on for relatively cheap and broker as a way to make money online. Before you dive in, however, beware that some experts doubt the long-term viability of this idea for making money online. However, there’s always the change you might just land on a lucrative domain name for a future billion-dollar company. To get you started, here are some tips from GoDaddy, arguably the world’s largest and most famous repository of domain names.
Getting a user to signup for a dating offer is easy, but if that’s your only form of advertising and monetization you are still leaving a lot of money on the table. After all, what’s about everyone who is already dating or married? If you are already having experience with online dating offers, it shouldn’t be too hard for you to play around with some of your existing ad campaigns and test out dating and relationship on a CPS basis as well.
In United States online dating members spent $469.5 million in 2004, and over $500 million in 2005. Now, in 2010, online dating is the second largest segment of online paid content, according to a study conducted by the Online Publishers Association (OPA) and comScore Networks. For almost any western nation in the world there are good chances of making money in the online dating inudstry withouth having to buy your way in—if you do it the right way, as we're about to teach you in this step-by-step guide.
As a customer, I find that the dating sites with glossy stock photos of beautiful women and men look a bit suspicious. I even saw someone release a live site with the demo member photos still in place! It's a bit of a Catch-22... You have to have members to have a good site, but you have to have a good site to get members! With a glut of dating sites, I think coding something original is the way to go. It's a great way to learn programming!

Creating those little pieces of someone’s visual brand is both fun for you and appreciated by the recipient. In fact, you can do this kind of work “on spec” to see if someone wants to do more with you in the future. Here’s how: use Buzzsumo to figure out which post is the most popular on someone’s site. Let’s use Anne’s site, Unique Gifter, as an example. Buzzumo says “60+ Linen 4th Anniversary Gifts for Men” is her most popular post right now:

Find a profitable niche: We’ve talked about this a lot. But, where are you most comfortable. What niche do your skills, values, and interests intersect? Do you have 10 years of experience as a technical writer? Do you have long-standing PR relationships that’ll be invaluable in helping startups launch a successful crowdfunding campaign? Determine what makes your value unique, and lean heavily on showcasing that strength to your potential clients.
India, though never a priority market, was just about getting started. A vast number of urban singles, shunning stigma and societal denouncements, were ready to date online. Slowly, but surely, armed with the ubiquitous smartphone, apps became the norm. And then, the likes of Aisle, TrulyMadly and iCrushiFlush took the plunge into the 85-million market with contrasting business models.
You won’t make money on sites like zazzle or other sites. Any digital is not worth money because it can be reproduced to other people for free and it has no physical property that can pass from one person to the next. The best advice is to take up oil painting and paint on canvas. If you work doesn’t sell in oil paint it means you need to practice more. You will have to sell your artwork locally and go to public auctions, galleries for artwork sales. You can create actual 3D signs made of plastic, metal, etc..or even letter fonts which alot of businesses are more interested in than just a digital copy and you’re giving them the final product. Nothing digital will sell unless you are a big corporate.
Become an Amazon Associate and then use Keyword planner to find an in-demand niche: With more than a million different products to choose from and up to 10% commission the sales you drive, Amazon’s affiliate program is a great place to get started. Browse their available products and see what connects with you. Or take it a step further and use Google’s Keyword Planner to quickly check how many people are searching for a specific term. With affiliate marketing, the more relevant traffic you can pull in, the more you’ll make off your site.
This may sound overwhelming at first, especially for beginners, but Binom has been designed such that even novices can use it. Tracker-related errors are minimized if not eliminated altogether. You’ll also find detailed documentation and an extensive FAQ to help you get a better sense of how best to use the product. And then support is always there to help when you need it too.
How much can you earn this way?  There are people earning thousands of dollars per month using the Dating Factory model.  They share the revenue with you, and provide good technical support and promotional materials.  All you have to do is build the site and let people know that it’s there.  And the built-in affiliate program capabilities allow you to recruit people to promote your site for you, and Dating Factory will see to it that they get paid.

Numbers would be helpfull if you like people to model you. If i am about to take some strategy to work on i need to see how it worked for others. Like in fitness. Its nice to see the change in someone before taking their stategy. (sorry for poor english, still learning). So if you could show us some numbers, how much you make on diffrent sources the this could open our eyes and minds to your ideas. Now proof no followers. Thx for advice though.
Partnering with Tee Spring is like crowdfunding with T-Shirts! It's 100% free to design your shirt. Simply use the online designer to create your product by either uploading your design or using clip art from the site. You'll have to set a sales goal or tipping point, which is the minimum you need to sell in order to have your shirts printed. Then share your campaign via email, your website, or your favorite social media networks. Your customers won't be charged unless your campaign reaches the tipping point. Once your campaign ends, shirts are printed and sent out, and you'll be sent a check for the profit. 

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? Most people who draw don’t understand you can make a good living from drawing, or don’t even know where they would start selling their drawings at. 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.
With the sites I have listed above and with the Google AdSense link, I do earn a small percentage if someone signs up and generates some sales, clicks or leads. However, this will not affect how much you will earn. So, if you find my advice helpful and the list of trusted sites useful, why don't you help out a fellow webmaster! These affiliate programs have treated me well and have paid promptly (or why would I promote them on this site?). Most of our visitors agree that these are some of the best dating sites on the net.
3 - You have a huge disadvantage by trying to take on the biggest sites in the world, (PlentyofFish, Match.com, OKCupid, Tinder, Badoo, Zoosk) and you are trying to take them on with an inferior script that has limited user participation on it, has limited features, and is bought from a developer who has sold the exact same script to a thousand other people who are all using it exactly like you. You need a custom script to have any real chance of ever making it a success, and you need to offer features that work, are useful and make people want to be a part of it, rather than just buy a script and hope people join your brand new site rather than swipe right on thousands of people in their area on Tinder. Far too many people get caught up on all the thousands of amazing functions such as 3D cities, VR dating, Playing games with potential dates, and none of that matters, its pointless expense and resource drain when reality is that people just want lots of people in their area to choose from, who reply back and talk about making a date.
One of the many truths in the matter is… NOT putting all of your energy, skills, ideas in one basket and expecting it to sustain you. Times have changed and I think that there could be a great opportunity here to further this discussion on ideas + action = results kind of [sustain yourself as an artist/graphic designer/illustrator…..] conversation.
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.

I am in the initial stages of starting my arts business online, and this book certainly made me realize that artists don't have to starve! I got some unique ideas about advertising my art in places where I had not thought about at all - online flea markets and free ads. I have been able to define keyword rich ads and use the smart pricing strategies suggested by the author. I have also set up my Pinterest account based on his suggestions, and I am generating interest! This is a very useful resource!


Now, it’s time to start creating and uploading content. Make sure you’re using a high-enough quality camera (most smartphones will work but I’d suggest at least having a tripod so your footage isn’t shaky), but don’t worry about being perfect at first. The beauty of YouTube is that you can continue to test out different content and styles as you find what works for you. Instead, stick to a regular schedule to build up your subscriber base.

Hi Kylia, I came across your article (very I good information) as I was searching for "best dating site features". I launched my first dating site last year in January and am currently running a "first year anniversary" giveaway to celebrate. I am looking to add possibly a forum/message board or instant chat features to create more of a community experience to my site's members. Since you have quite a bit of experience, could you recommend a must have feature I should add to keep members engaged?
If it matches up with your site’s target customer and overall structure, allowing users to send gifts to one another is one of the hottest and newest ways niche dating sites are monetizing their membership base. You can charge users to send virtual gifts like greeting cards, gift cards, digital flowers, digital candy, or partner vouchers that are redeemable for physical products. Dating sites that support gift-giving between users often do so as an extension of their affiliate programs, but many are now making this a mainstream option to allow users to “stand out” when introducing themselves to a prospective date or as a “Thank You” for a nice date experience.

Stock photo websites will allow you to upload your drawing, graphic art work, paintings etc. at no cost to you. The only requirement is that your work be 100% original and meet the quality guidelines. This will not be very difficult for any good artist. You can upload any kind of art work be it on paper, canvas or digital. It can be a sketch, a painting, a vector, basically anything. It does not cost anything to upload and you will get paid every time someone downloads it. The same art work can get download and sold hundreds of times and can continue to make you money for a very long time. The more artwork you upload and the largest portfolio you build, the more income you can expect to make.
I’ve been a web designer for 8 years and I can assure you that there is no money in web design unless you are employed full time by a company making a salary. Web design is joke. Nobody pays real money anymore for web design. They just go to any of the big template shops and pay $60 for a design then have them customize it… or hire some college kid for 100 bucks to build a site.
Disclaimer: Please note that some of the links on this post are affiliate links. I will earn a small commission when you purchase a product or service from an affiliate link at no extra cost to you which helps with the costs of operating Nevue Fine Art Marketing. I will only recommend products I have used, found helpful to my business and are companies I trust.
You can make money by drawing illustrations at Fiverr - Freelance Services Marketplace for The Lean Entrepreneur You can be up and running within minutes. There are many people searching online for illustrations and a lot go here. Just fill out a simple questionnaire about the type of illustrations you do and you will have customers ready to pay you.
I’m a crafty person. In addition to my budding design business have a ribbon shop on etsy. While that’s not passive it allows me diversity in my workday. Also another income stream I’m looking into is becoming a fitness instructor. While its not passive it allows me to get away from my desk, get out of the house, and get some exercise. I guess it would be considered passive if I created exercise videos and sold them on my site.
As a customer, I find that the dating sites with glossy stock photos of beautiful women and men look a bit suspicious. I even saw someone release a live site with the demo member photos still in place! It's a bit of a Catch-22... You have to have members to have a good site, but you have to have a good site to get members! With a glut of dating sites, I think coding something original is the way to go. It's a great way to learn programming!
If you have a fondness and talent for taking pictures you can make extra money online by becoming a stock photographer and selling your images to a stock photo company like ShutterStock or iStockPhoto. You’ll get royalties every time someone licenses an image you’ve submitted. To really be successful, build your own photography website to be able to showcase your portfolio and start getting higher-paid private corporate work.
For example, he is strategic with his time, and decided early on to make simple art that could be done in two hours or less. “It couldn’t be something like oil painting that needed set up time and weeks of time to complete one piece”, he says. “I wanted to feel a sense of accomplishment on a regular basis, even if I was only chipping away at it for 30 minutes a day.” And so he tailored his art accordingly – small accomplishments that could be produced quickly. 

Creating those little pieces of someone’s visual brand is both fun for you and appreciated by the recipient. In fact, you can do this kind of work “on spec” to see if someone wants to do more with you in the future. Here’s how: use Buzzsumo to figure out which post is the most popular on someone’s site. Let’s use Anne’s site, Unique Gifter, as an example. Buzzumo says “60+ Linen 4th Anniversary Gifts for Men” is her most popular post right now:
Ebay is a bellwether. It's been around since nearly the start of the online boom. But, like any other platform, success can seem fleeting if you don't know what you're doing. Selling items on eBay, professionally that is, can be an art form. Getting people interested in your auctions isn't always easy, especially when there's hefty competition and low demand for what you're selling.
If you have a fondness and talent for taking pictures you can make extra money online by becoming a stock photographer and selling your images to a stock photo company like ShutterStock or iStockPhoto. You’ll get royalties every time someone licenses an image you’ve submitted. To really be successful, build your own photography website to be able to showcase your portfolio and start getting higher-paid private corporate work.
Build up a following on your Instagram account and you could quickly be making extra money online. Major brands, gear companies, and even startups are willing to shell out $500-$5,000+ per post to get in front of your audience. While it’s getting harder and harder to build a massive Instagram audience, if you already have a solid niche and are posting quality content regularly, with a few small tweaks you can make yourself an influencer. Check out this awesome article from Shopify on how to build and grow your Instagram following to get started.
Second, you can become a partner and have a merch store. This is a neat option because you can feature shirts with designs from other artists. You get to choose what you like and what to carry in your store. You earn a generous 31% commission on sales of your own merchandise and 11% on existing TeePublic designs. So even if you're not a designer, you can make money online selling t-shirts!
You can make money on the side as a designer, but you can also earn a living getting hired on as a designer with a design firm or a corporation. Most employers that are hiring a designer in-house are looking for someone who has a large portfolio or a degree. If you do not have much experience designing on a professional level, completing a formal degree program might help you get a foot in the door.

Selling through Tfund allows you to set your own pricing as well, and the more you sell, the more you make. Prices vary to create a shirt depending on your design and text, but I created a simple shirt with text and a graphic and listed it for $20. You can earn profit even with as few as 10 shirts ($63.10). Selling 50 shirts would net a whopping $410! (And remember, that's on a $20 shirt!) This is a great option if you're looking to crowdfund.
You won't make a lot of money by running a free dating site, unless you have massive amounts of traffic. Now, we're not expecting you to achieve massive amounts of traffic. It's highly unrealistic that your site will be the next PlentyOfFish.com or Match.com. However, you will need at least a few thousand members (don't worry, it's not as hard as it sounds).
Sound advice for anyone, web designer or not. Gone are the days when you could rely on your employer (LONG gone) no matter if you’re a consultant or salaried at whatever you do. Always be looking for little jobs and opportunities. I know of really no one that I would consider wealthy that has 1 job, and that’s it. Side investments in real estate and consulting gigs can pay off. Look down the road, not only for the short term and plant seeds if you’re young.
We understand, at first, it may not seem like a good idea to create a product that will help other designers, but there are many benefits to doing this. For starters, this will be your chance to establish your creativity. Graphic design is a profession that has a lot of competition and the reality behind it is that many of the templates are being purchased by in-house designers or beginners that are more so based in production. By designing and selling your templates online, you will be able to gain a good amount of money, passively.
You would have come across many successful dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, Happn, etc in the industry. So if you want to start an online dating business as same as them then you need an app developed to help your purpose. So developing an app for your business ideas from scratch may leave a sound of coins in your pocket, takes more time and prone to risks. If prevailing successful business in industry matches all your ideas of business then just with a clone of that particular business app implemented with your ideas can immensely help your purpose. The clone apps will save your time, cost and importantly it is risk-free.
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.
Hey there…. I run my own studio designing for the music industry and I agree that finding passive income to supplement your income is the way to go. One way I’ve had some success, is through Art Licensing. For those not familiar with this, It’s creating artwork & designs and then putting deals together with manufacturers that want these designs on their products. You usually get an advance up front and royalties on the products sold. This does take a bit of time to get rolling, and There are trade shows to attend as well (LICENSING SHOW in Vegas and the SURTEX show in NYC) which are not too cheap. But if business is slow, and you have time to create new lines of art, it can be a very cool area to pursue. I actually get some pretty nice royalty checks from designs for kids school folders and cell phone case graphics.
There are many factors when figuring exactly how much you can earn with Tee Spring, and it varies depending on everything, from the text and design you use to your choice of t-shirt.
