8 ways to make money with out getting a job
1. Write a Book
Writing a book means you can earn money off of the sales once you’ve published it. You can always go the ebook option and self publish, or try to find a publishing house that will take you on.
2. Create an App
Create a smartphone app and earn money every time someone downloads it. You never know what will go viral and how quickly you can make money if your app’s a hit. In fact, the silly iFart app even generated $30,000US in just one day.
3. Start a Static Blog
Spend some time building a website in an area that interests you and other people. Focus on topics that won’t ever get dated (“how to” articles are pretty evergreen) that you know people will be searching for. Host ads on your site. Once you have some good content on your site, you can quit writing and make money off your old content.
4. Write Articles Online
You can make money if you get approved to be a writer for About.com. You’ll get paid to write the articles in the first two years. After that, you’ll be paid according to pageviews. Once you’ve put in the initial effort to write the article, you can just make money off of the views in years to come.
5. Create a YouTube Video
Shoot a video for YouTube, and if your video becomes popular, you can run ads on it to make money. The amount you earn varies, but many people, such as Justin Bieber, have launched careers out of it, and popular YouTubers are making over six figures.
6. Take Beautiful Photos
If you’ve got an eye and passion for photography, sell your photos to sites like Shutterstock — a place where amateur photographers can sell their photos. You’ll earn a commission that ranges anywhere from 25 cents to $75 or more for every image downloaded. There are other similar sites like iStockphoto and Shutterfly, so be sure to do your research and pick one that works best for you
7. Draw and Design Graphics
The photo websites also accept illustrations and graphics. You will still earn money for each download.
8. Make a T-Shirt
Design a t-shirt for Threadless, and if your design is popular among the site’s community, the company will use your designs for the next Threadless shirts. If your design is picked, you’ll get $2,000, a $500 threadless voucher (which you can redeem for $200 cash), and another $500 every time your t-shirt is reprinted. You can also design and sell t-shirts as well as other products on sites like Zazzle and Cafe Press.
