Creative Ways To Make Money Online
These days we all need that extra boost of another income. One easy idea is to use the internet and start a business from home using your talents to find creative ways to make money online.
A question for me was, do those people with more technical skills make money easier on the internet, than those who possess the more creative skills?
Have you a creative talent and looking to make money on the internet. Is it easy to make money online using your creative talents? I didn’t think so until I started researching this article.
Now that I have completed my research I can now show you some of the possibilities and options on using your natural creative talent to earn an income. So here are my hints and tips for boosting your home income. These ideas range from freelance graphic design to selling handmade products on the internet.
One option if you are looking to start a second income on the freelance market is to try these two websites.
Upwork (Formerly Elance)
This is an online job agency for freelance personnel. Jobs ranging from web design to graphic design. Upwork have all types of work to suit your freelance career with part-time, full-time, short or long projects.
Signing up with Upwork just involves you creating your own stunning profile, once this is complete you will be able to view the jobs by category and apply for the work.
Upwork take a fee of 10% on your job. Payment is through Upwork and can be made by Paypal, Direct Transfer etc.
At Fiverr the website states all jobs “gigs” start for $5 (Although Fiverr are now experimenting with $25, $50 or $100 gigs).
While your basic job starts at $5, you upsell your skills further with a premium version of the job for $15. All payments to you are made by Paypal.
These next two I discovered cover design as well as being useful and skilled in making those personalised handmade goods.
With Cafepress your unique design can be customized and applied to merchandise such as tee-shirts, hoodies and mugs. It is also possible to set up and run your own online shop with your unique designs on merchandise.
Etsy is available to those of you who are crafty with your hands. Here you have a global market at your command. It will cost you $00.20 usd to list an item then a further 3.50% once you have completed the transaction on your item.
You will need to read the “sellers handbook” for the do’s and don’ts of selling and they are strict on their ethical expectations (no child labour, etc.) if you do need to outsource some of your manufacturing.
If none of these options are what you had in mind. Take control of your life and set it up yourself and use your natural creative talents to earn that income that you have always wished for.
