Become a Freelance Writer

You can now become a blog writer instead. The difference is a blog writer creates social media content for a customer. They use the customer’s name when they publish it, not their own. Simple.

Several of my creator friends are making $10k-$25k a month with this one strategy. It’s not hard. Anyone can do it. Why not you?

Here are the steps:

  • Publish content online. It’ll attract clients.
  • Find one client. Undercharge.
  • Do a good job. Get a testimonial and multiple referrals from them.

NFTs are one part of Web3. They make content portable and give creators ownership of their work which is verifiable by anyone on the blockchain network. NFTs are slowly becoming one of the fastest ways creators earn money online. Learn to earn.

Test Websites and Give Feedback

If you have a keen eye for website design and development, consider becoming a website tester. It’s a great way to make money quickly and immerse yourself in the web development industry.

A website tester must have critical and logical thinking skills, excellent communication abilities, and knowledge of website functionality and design. These qualities can improve your job prospects and test-reporting quality.

Payments are usually project-based, and the rates differ based on the testing methods and the platform’s policy.

For example, UserTesting offers $4–$120/test. Website testers who perform live conversation sessions with clients make more money.

You can take initiate from these platforms:

Do Voice-Over Work

Voice-over work is an excellent way to make money fast. Since most voice-over jobs are project-based, a long-term commitment isn’t required.

Companies are always looking for new voice-over talents. Here are a few examples of how to use your voice to make good money:

  • Audiobooks. Help bring a story to life by narrating various types of books, including novels, biographies, and essay collections.
  • Advertisements and commercials. Ads with voice-overs are still a popular way for companies to market their products and services.
  • Trailers. Movies, shows, and even events create trailers to build anticipation.
  • Demonstration videos. Some companies create how-to videos and hire voice-over talents to help demo their products.
  • Guides. Audio guides are used by museums, galleries, travel agencies, and tourist destinations to enhance the visitor experience.

Take surveys for money

You can make money from home by taking online surveys, but don’t expect to be rolling in the dough. Survey sites don’t typically offer a big payoff, and many sites are more useful for earning gift cards than cash. Some of the more popular survey sites include Swagbucks and Survey Junkie. Read our analysis of survey sites to find out which one is best suited for you.

Total time: It will take a while.
Setup: Just minutes.
How easy to start: Very. Just register and begin.
Age threshold: 13 to 18+.

Get advertising revenue from your blog or YouTube channel

Turn your cat videos into cash videos. If your YouTube videos or blog posts draw a big audience, you may be able to make money from advertising. YouTube sets 1,000 subscribers as the benchmark creators must make before applying for the YouTube Partners Program. YouTube Partners then get access to Google AdSense, a service businesses pay through to advertise around your content. The service is free, but there are requirements you must meet.

  • It can take several weeks to get up and running.

  • Not that hard.

Depends on how good you are at producing interesting videos.

Could take a long while to earn the first payout; then monthly.


Sell your photography

Turn your photographs into cash via sites like Fine Art America, which lets you upload your images to sell as prints, T-shirts, phone cases and more. Other marketplaces for photographers include SmugMug, 500px and PhotoShelter. Some sites require a subscription but may provide features ranging from cloud storage to password-protected galleries and a customized website.

  • You can set up a profile with sites like SmugMug, PhotoShelter or Fine Art America in a few hours, assuming you have a body of original work.

    Payment varies widely depending on the site.

    Fine Art America: Payment issued after 30-day return window expires. Sent on the 15th of each month.

    PhotoShelter: Payment issued at time of sale to your chosen payment method (PayPal, Stripe, etc.).

    SmugMug: You can request payment be issued the following month if you have a balance of at least $5.

  • Requirements vary by site, but you need to have all necessary rights to the images you sell.

Place ads in the email body

We hate ads.

But when the ad is from a company or creator we like and is high quality, we don’t mind it at all.

You can keep a newsletter free and simply source ads from companies you respect by, you guessed it, finding the right ad contacts on LinkedIn and pitching them. There are even ad marketplaces that will find ads for your newsletter and set it all up.

Sell Stock Photos and Footage

If you’re an avid photographer or videographer, consider selling stock photos and footage to generate a passive income. You’ll be able to practice your passion and make money simultaneously.

Many companies and business owners use stock content in their marketing campaigns, ads, and websites. In addition to the standard stock photo format, companies constantly look for fresh ideas and unique perspectives to make their brand stand out.

You can make a photography website and sell photos there. It’s also a good idea to sign up for online marketplaces and list your digital downloads. That way, you’ll get a head start at cultivating your personal brand while promoting it to potential buyers.
