As you start regularly putting out content, you’ll hopefully start to build a bit of an audience. But to start seeing real money from YouTube you need to market your videos elsewhere. Share your channel on Twitter and Facebook. Distribute videos anywhere else you can think of. Also, interact with comments and build a community around the videos you’re making so people will share it with their friends.
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.

The gist of this whole thing goes like this: UX designers, web designers, app developers and more are always looking for little icons to use in their work. Pull out your smartphone real quick and open up pretty much anything. If there’s an icon in the app that’s used to indicate a menu, option, button, or whatever, then somebody needed to design that icon. And sure, you can find icons all over the place to use, but since other designers are already using them, it gets pretty boring.Nobody wants to use the same thing as everybody else, so they look for alternatives — you know, like hand drawn icons. Plus, other drawings and illustrations can be turned into website assets, and even your handwriting can become a font. That means pretty much everything that you’re sketching onto that scrap piece of paper can be turned into something that can make you some extra money. And who doesn’t like making money for doing something they love? 

Marc Johns is an artist. I’ve been following his work for over a year now. His drawings have been described as “badass whimsy”. They’re funny and deep, which is a unique combination. He articulates the things that people think, but don’t say. For example, one of his pieces is a giant starburst shape with the words “I don’t really know what I’m doing” written inside. Quirky and simple, but knowing.

"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."

The first follows the startup path we outlined above: You have a disruptive idea for an app or piece of software, you validate the idea with real customers, and then raise money to hire developers or a development studio to build, launch, and scale your software. If you’ve done everything right, your software will be accepted to the Apple and Google Stores and you’ll make money every time someone downloads it or pays for a premium feature.

The business of online dating, as ironic as it might seem, isn’t about dating. It never was. It’s more about user engagement at a micro-level and hope, cognitively speaking. It is about getting you to spend time on the platform. And, as Robert Palmer so convincingly sang, it’s about getting you ‘addicted to love.’ So what do you do next? Pay for it.
If you want to help shape products in their early stages, joining an online focus group or answering survey questions is a great way to make extra money online. They don’t pay as much as some of the other options we’ve highlighted, but you can join groups on sites like Survey Junkie, Swagbucks, and IPSOS that pay out through Amazon gift cards, check, or PayPal. You’ll be asked to provide a bit of information about your demographics (age, location, etc…), but after that you can get going making money through surveys.
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!
Thanks for the article. I tried my first T-shirt project using Teespring. I use their design tools to put quotes on a shirt and I think the final product on the screen looks cheap and amateurish because there’s not many options when using their design tools. I probably wouldn’t buy if I saw a Teespring ad for quotes on a shirt. But your article gave me other resources which I may pursue.

These are great tips for established artists, but what I want to share here are some alternative artistic money-making ideas which might be more realistic options for someone just starting out down a creative career path. Some may seem obvious to you, and some you may already be doing, but I hope you can get at least one new idea for creating an extra source of income from your art.
Create a portfolio of your artists' work through either an online hosting website--some are free, others require a subscription fee--or by building a website featuring your work. You can use the website to sell the pictures presented or add already-sold images as representations of your work and allow people to commission similar images to what you have shown. Shoppers may want to collect drawings from one specific employee or purchase a variety of up-and-comers' designs to start a new collection.
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.
Choosing to create a free dating website will definitely help you build your community fast. This method is especially useful if you choose a small niche or local market to building your community around: for example, Miami pet lovers or Orange County singles. When you choose a small niche and then make the site free, it becomes easier to attract singles that are eager to join. I use this method when I start with zero members and want to build a community of real users.
According to LinkedIn, there are more than 10 million active job postings on their website! That is an incredible number of jobs waiting to be filled in with the right recruits, and this is the work of an efficient recruiter. Unfortunately, recruitment is a complex activity, and several companies do not have the bandwidth to scout for the right talent with their in-house staff.
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.
If it’s not clear yet, information and expertise are two of the most consistent and lucrative ways to make extra money online. If you don’t like talking on the phone, you can sign up to get paid to answer professional questions on JustAnswer.

To apply, you’ll need to supply your professional verification, resume, and a form of identification.

Hi…Great article. I have stores in all of your mention sites and a few more. I love making designs using photoshop but many of these business you can use their artwork. I have been making money for about 5 years using these concepts. I started with Zazzle give up for a while then went back and started making some sales. This is a good way to make extra money but it is not easy. You have to really market your product and website and have some knowledge on SEO. If you are good at advertising and marketing this is a great way to make extra cash. So far zazzle and customizedgirl are the only ones making money without much effort.
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.
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.
As an artist you have to try everything to promote your art and to embrace failure because you have to remember the world wasn t build in few days. I like the idea of writing a book and also if you have a skill try social media and virtual galleries, show your work and write to other people about what you do. You never know, someone might be interested. Don t give up on dreaming and never stop trying.
Hi there! I just recently graduated with my Associates Degree in Graphic Arts, and I’m good with the Adobe Creative Suite programs (i.e. Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator), is there anything I can to make money until I do land a “dream” job. I’m thinking about designing letter-headers, bumper stickers, and maybe do resumes for people who don’t have time to do them. Is there anything you can suggest?
If you live in an area where Uber or Lyft operate, why not become a driver? If you're looking to make some short-term cash, you can definitely rake it in by working for one of these popular car-hire apps. As long as your vehicle fits within the specifications of their program, and you have a clean license, you could do this on the side, especially if you're in a crunch for cash.
Now, for those of you who sit behind a camera first and then behind Photoshop. The Internet is dying to buy your photographs and I can assure you a business out of this provided that you are good at whatever you do. Launch your own Photo Selling Website or publish photographs on other marketplaces listed below. In any case you are bound to grow. Soon, you will be earning money from your passion – Photography!
Very few people know that they can actually make money by just submitting poems, phrases, photography, and art to greeting card companies. Well, now you know.

Here are 30 greeting card sites that actually pay:

Creative Market is a way for designers to create and sell digital files like templates, illustrations, logos and web design. The artist sets their own price, and keeps 70 percent of each sale. Unlike some other sites, Creative Market has no exclusivity limitations, meaning products can appear on another platform with no penalty. If the designer becomes a partner and refers a customer, they get an extra 10 percent commission.


So one great way to get paid to draw is to sign up with some of the many stock images websites. They all allow you to sign up for free as a contributor, and upload images that are then sold on the website. You get a percentage of every sale made, with the exact percentage varying from website to website, and also according to the type of sale made.
Again, there are many variables here. An example would be, you can create a simple design, and the t-shirt will run you $19.95, then you set the percentage of your royalty rate. So if you choose a 20% royalty rate, your shirt will sell for $23.95, earning you a profit of $4.55 per shirt after the 24 cent transaction fee (which only applies when your royalty rate is set at 20% or above). Sell 50 shirts, earn about $227.
So there isn’t a huge payoff for selling on Fiverr, but the site is well-known, and if sellers are savvy they can make a decent amount of money for little effort. If, for example, designers want to sell a logo, they can create a template. By creating a vague symbol and a free-for-commercial-use typeface, a designer could simply tweak the colors and the name of the company for each client. The client isn’t getting a truly unique logo — but they’re also only paying $5 for it.
But most of people make a common mistakewhen it comes to create a creative thing. they dontbelieve their pop up ideas at the first placethey just throw away and say "they wont like it"thats wrong !!90% of my pop up ideas are attractive, and they love it.it doesnt mean youre going to win the contestit helps me to grab my clients attentionamong other designs…
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.
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.
Great Article Preston!! I am a graphic designer/videographer and one alternative revenue driver for me that “works in the background” is selling stock footage. Whenever I am on location for a shoot, I will venture out and capture assorted b-roll of architecture, city-scapes, fountains etc. I log and capture all that extra footage, tag it and sell it on assorted sites like Revostock and Pond 5. It’s always a nice surprise getting an email that I have sold a couple of clips generating a little bit of extra revenue. Look for my footage under fishidesign at those sites.

This isn’t to scare you off. I simply want you to know that this guide is going to focus solely on ways to make real, sustainable extra income online. Not just a few bucks. I want to share all the mistakes I've made that got me to where I am now so that you don’t have to go through them, and can build a successful online source of income for yourself.
As with all affiliate marketing, it’s simply a numbers game. Just one sale per day on an offer like the one above could result in extra $949.20 per month in revenue. Should you multiply those earnings, you would then see a revenue stream like the ones below. The traffic is already out there, you just need to build a campaign and keep split testing til it’s profitable.

PinkyTee.com is a new website that is launching in Nov 2016 and is accepting artist submissions. They are a daily t-shirt company that will print your shirt for 24 hours and pay you $1.00 for every t-shirt sold. The artist retains all rights to the design and they pay you via PayPal 2 weeks after the sale is over. Its a good way to make some extra money.
Regardless of how you may have felt at the time, it’s undeniable now that cryptocurrency has earned significant legitimacy among the general public. It’s gone mainstream and while it is certainly subject to volatility, it also means that a lot of “regular” people are getting into cryptocurrency in some form if they haven’t already. And as an affiliate marketer, this presents a potentially lucrative opportunity as these offers can appeal to an increasingly larger audience.

If you have experience with marketing, SEO, or a knack for getting people excited about the products and services you use on a regular basis, think about refining your skills and putting them to work making money online as a small business marketing consultant in your region—especially if you can become a local SEO expert and can help local clients rank higher in their search results.

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.
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.
Sell Personal Information: You must be very careful if you choose to do sell other peoples private information to any third parties. Participate in permission marketing, where you permit other companies to send advertising to your members through email, SMS etc. and you will get a percentage of the revenue. Do not sell your members private information unless they have clearly permitted you to go through with this.
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.

The dating industry is now valued at over $2.4 billion dollars, and the demand for such services and products isn’t slowing down any time soon. To learn more about “The Relationship Building Package” and how to setup your affiliate links, simply visit theiraffiliate resource page or find them within the ClickBank marketplace (search for “relationship building”).


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.
My next self-funded business hit $160,000 in revenue in its first year alone. After that first taste of self-made success, I’ve gone on to sign consulting contracts worth tens of thousands of dollars with startups like LinkedIn and Google, launch profitable online courses, and build a following of hundreds of thousands for this blog and my podcast series.
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.
If my piece of content is so unique and valuable around hiking backpack recommendations, that other reputable outdoor websites are willing to link to it and build the page’s authority, then I’d have a very real opportunity to rank high in organic search for these search terms (meaning, my page will come up first when someone searches for hiking backpacks).
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.

Better yet, you can even upload your own book to one of the world’s largest book sellers: Amazon. With Amazon self-publishing, you set the price, retain the rights to your book, and get access to Amazon’s massive audience. For every sale, you keep 70% with Amazon taking the remainder as a fee. If you want to get started, check out Leslie Samuel's great guide to selling eBooks online or follow Tara Gentile on CreativeLive as she shows you how to use your existing body of work to write an eBook within the next week. Who knows, you might just write one of the best business books of this year!

You need members to make money – You’re only going to make money from dating sites if you can persuade people to join as paying members.  With lots of free dating sites out there, getting people to pay can be a bit difficult, but it’s not impossible.  With the model I’m going to recommend, you allow people to join for free, but they’ll have limited access to the sites’ resources.
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).
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.

Now, if you don’t know people who might want your coaching services, there are a number of online tools and communities that make it incredibly easy to find clients and teach, on just about any topic area you can think of. Community driven platforms like Savvy.is, Clarity.fm, and Coach.me provide you with a network of potential clients to interact with, as well an integrated payment solution.
What are you doing right now (besides reading this article, obviously)? Take a look around your desk. Do you have scraps of paper — a notebook, maybe — with little drawings floating around the page? What if I told you that you could make money by drawing a little bit every day? Well it’s true, you can make money by doodling everyday objects – you just have to go the extra mile to reach potential customers. Once you’ve fine-tuned your unique doodle style you can make some extra cash by selling on Creative Market, Etsy, or by building an online brand via Instagram. Let’s break down the process to getting started.
This is the highest you’ll get paid for a logo but you’ll need to be great and I always find the key to doing well on this site is to do 5 to 10 logos on every contest all different so the person has more to choose from, say you did 50 logos a day and entered 5 contests and won them all, you could earn 500 to 1500 bucks in just one day. not bad for days work.
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.
There are quite literally hundreds of clever ways to make money online. From taking online surveys, to renting or selling your old clothes, flipping your iPhone to someone in a different country, and even buying low-cost products locally, just to resell them for a higher price on Amazon. There’s truly no shortage of unique ways to make money online.

In a past life, I worked on sketching and really enjoyed it. With this book, I now have great hopes of returning back to my calling. I purchased this book as it appeared compelling that one could actually make a living doing something they enjoyed. Vincent has hit upon a very hot topic nowadays in which people are hungry to turn their passions, desires and interests into streams of sustainable supplemental income. So many people are fed up with their boring dead end jobs and desperately seeking a way out. I believe this book is a great catalyst in making an investment in yourself and your future.


This is the oldest website monetization trick in the book and plenty of dating sites still choose affiliate networks as part of their overall strategy. In most cases, the CPA (cost per action) model is preferred by both dating sites and affiliates, but sometimes CPC (cost per click) can work as well. Increase your odds of success with affiliates by displaying deals from businesses relevant to the dating industry such as florists, jewelers or candy stores. If your dating site is niche, consider working with affiliates that cater to that niche.
Best thing about this post for me? To know that I’m not alone, trying to make money in different ways, while having a (full-time) job. I’m a translator, virtual assistant, customize WordPress sites, use Adsense, affiliate links, sell on eBay, etc. (Don’t ask where I find time, LOL). I thought I was crazy to try it all, but your post reinforces the idea NOT to depend on one source of income. So I’m on the right track, and not crazy at all 🙂 Thanks again!

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.
