Are you creative? Whether you make, paint, write or bake, you can earn a living online. Here are 4 ideas to help you get started:
- 1. Etsy. If you are an artist or crafter you will no doubt have come across Etsy. It is a great way to show off your products without having to create a shop of your own.
- 2. More sites for crafters. There are lots more sites for crafters to sell through: try Dawanda, Misi, or NotOnTheHighStreet.
- 3. Write an eBook. Ebooks are becoming very popular and a great way to become an author. If you love writing and have a good knowledge of a niche area, you could write a book on it! Ebooks can lead onto becoming a trainer or speaker at conferences. They are a great way to show people you are an authority in that area.
- 4. Become a freelance writer. If you love writing and enjoy researching topics to write about then why not offer your services as a freelance writer. This can be for magazines, newspapers or websites.
Whatever you create, you will need to draw traffic to your items through social media but once you have a following some of these businesses will earn you money even as you sleep.
