1. Sell Photos

If you are even remotely interested in photography, why not make money doing something you enjoy doing anyway? If you already have a portfolio of photos you can start selling them on sites like DepositPhotos, Shutterstock, and iStockPhoto.

These are probably the biggest photo platforms but I’m sure with a little research you will find that there are tons of other platforms that you can submit your work to as well.

You will find lots of competition in this area but if you can get the ball rolling it will be well worth the effort as you can generate royalty earnings from your photos for years to come.

Once you submit your photos with a good description people who search for professional photos to use in their work on the above mentioned site may buy your work while you sit back and collect the royalties.

2. Create Courses on Udemy

Think of some things you can do that other people would pay to learn how to do. Think about how you would teach other people how to do those things. What are the specific steps involved?

If you were able to come up with responses for those questions then you can create a course to sell on Udemy.

Udemy is a platform that allows people who have specialized knowledge to build and sell courses. You can learn how to do virtually anything on Udemy.

They have courses on everything from drawing cute cartoon characters to web design using Adobe Illustrator so if you are thinking you don’t have any knowledge that other people would be willing to pay for you are wrong!

Yes, they even have courses on how to make money online.

If you still think selling courses is not for you I would encourage you to take one of the courses so you can get a good idea of what would be expected from you content wise before ruling it out.

They even have some free courses that you can check out although, the paid courses might be more comparable to the type of course you would be expected to design if you want to earn money through their platform.

3. Write and Publish E-Books

If you enjoy writing and can move people with your words then the best way to make money online for you might be to start writing and publishing ebooks.

Speaking as someone who has written and published an ebook on Amazon’s platform, Kindle Direct Publishing, I can tell you it takes a lot of work in the beginning (before any money starts rolling in) but it is worth the effort if you write a quality book on a topic that people are interested in.

Full disclosure: if you choose to make your money online through self-publishing, writing your book is only the beginning. Starting out you will also learn a lot more about the best writing software to use, constructing a book launch, marketing your book, and more.

There is a ton of information available on the internet that explains the process of writing and publishing ebooks as well as traditional books. In fact, there is so much information that it may become overwhelming to digest and figure out exactly where to start.

You can definitely earn more money on the side through ebooks if you follow the right advice. Download my beginner’s guide to self-publishing to get the resources I personally use.
