Finding creative ways to make money can be tricky at times. Though like I have said before, with the power of the internet anything is possible now. The great thing about finding creative ways to make money online is that it can take you from dreading work to actually having some fun.

You can find ways to make money ranging from selling colored hair all the way to holding written signs of what users request. It can be quite comical what you can find.

1.Design T-Shirts

If you go to any store around the world there is most likely an 80% chance that there will a T-Shirt selection for sale, this is only counting brick and mortar stores. if you go online this statistic goes out the roof. That is where you come in though!

You are probably thinking “But I do not have a creative bone in my body”, that is the amazing thing about this. You do not need to be super creative. There is literally a market for everything. If you have a little joke that you thought was hilarious then you can post it on a T-Shirt, you can’t be the only one who thought it was funny!

T-Shirts are a representation of who you are and what you like, that is why there is such a demand. People want another way to express themselves.

It is super easy to get started designing and get your first T-Shirt to your door step.

First we will need an idea, get out a piece of paper and pen. Now start writing quotes, jokes and little images that might pop into your mind. Anything works, just do what you find funny. Now that you have some ideas down you can use a few different programs to actually make it a design.

Here are few:

  • Canva – Canva is a great free image editor with a various amount of tools, you can also pay for more premium options if desired. I actually use Canva to create all of my images across the website, I love it because it is an in-browser editor and I do not need to download any programs.
  • Photoshop – You have probably heard of Photoshop, it is one of the leading design software’s in the industry. Photoshop is great if you are a little more advanced with the platform. Though if you are willing to learn there are plenty of video and web-based tutorials. Photoshop does cost though, it will $35 per month, for everything you get it is well worth it and your return could be skyrocketed.
  • BeFunky – I have only had a little experience with platform but from what I have used it was great. The platform is free and web based so you will not need to download anything. You can use collage maker, photo editor and a lot more variants.

Now that you were able to get a graphic designed you can start going through the process of getting it on a T-Shirt and making some money off of it.

The best place I have found to print T-Shirts is VistaPrint , they have a lot of options for T-Shirts to print on and usually have sales on most of them. If you are having issues raising funds for you T-Shirts like Tee Spring to start raising funds.

TeeSpring is basically a group funding website for t-shirt, think of it as a pre-order system. You have people donate money to get an initial order out.

2.Start Developing Websites

I started learning how to develop websites in my early years of high school and have been doing it from time to time. The thing I love about developing websites is seeing the process from start to finish. Since you are developing an actual product you will be able to see every step from it.

“Everybody should learn to program a computer, because it teaches you how to think.” – Steve Jobs

There are around 665 million websites and counting so the market is going up, that is where you come in. Once you learn how to develop a website you will be able to keep that skill with you for the rest of your life. If you get good enough, company’s will pay anywhere from $1,000 – $10,000 for a website.

Though it will take a little bit of learning you can get the hang of it very quickly. There are a few great websites to get you on the track to start learning.

Here are some:

  • Codeacedemy – I love using codeacedemy for the amount of different languages it has. You can honestly learn every language out there with the amount of tutorials they have on the website. All of their tutorials are very easy to through also.
  • Code – Code.org is a platform that was created to get people to code for at least one hour a day. While this platform is based for the younger generation you can still learn a whole lot from it.

3.Write For Blogs

Writing for a blog can become a great way to make some extra money. While the number of actual blogs are growing so are the writers.

I have had days when I had no time to write so I needed someone to write a rough draft for me. You can write about almost anything, the different variety of blogs are numerous. There are blogs about cats, drones, chicken recipes. I could go on for days on all the different topics of blogs. So do not think what you enjoy you cannot write about.

I have noticed that once blogs start growing more and more the actual owners have less time to write. Though they do want to put out more content for their viewers, finding the time becomes almost impossible.

The easiest way to find if a blog needs another writer is just to google your interests and find a correlating blog. Once you find one you shoot them an email asking if they need writers.

Writing for a Blog Company

Another way you can make money from writing blog post is using websites that pay you for the traffic that your brings. What I mean is that you write for a website that runs ads and then they will pay a percentage of what those ads bring in.

Some great websites that offer this are:

  • HubPages – I actually wrote a few articles on HubPages a while back and earned around $45, even though I was only 18 it was a nice way of making an extra passive income. Just like I stated above, you will write a article and they will place ad’s on it and you will receive a percentage of the revenue from the ads.
  • WriteEdge – WriteEdge is similar to HubPages in the way you write for them to return a profit. The only difference between them is that WriteEdge pays you around .50 cents per view. So if you can get a lot of views it will add up a lot.

5.Fiverr

When I say Fiverr has everything, I mean it has everything. I could actually write a whole separate article on all the services and opportunities that Fiverr provides. Basically Fiverr is an online site in which you do freelancing for other people.

You can do all sorts services like:

  • Copywriting
  • Logo Design
  • Video Editing
  • Music Creation

The list could go on for days depending on what you are looking for. Here is a great video explaining fiverr and how to create a successful gig.

6.Use Airbnb

Do you have an extra room in your house that you do not use? Maybe a kid went off to college and you do not use it anymore? Well you can start using it to make some extra money each month.

If you have been reading the news you have probably heard of the service called Airbnb. Airbnb is a app/website that helps humans find home around the world to rent. So let’s so you are going to Los Angeles but do not want to rent a hotel, you can get on the app and find rooms/houses that are for rent.

While you are probably wonder if this can be safe inviting someone into your house. Airbnb has stated clearly how much work goes into screening the people renting houses.

Some of the benefits of being a renter are:

  • Monthly Income – If you are making monthly payments on your house then this is a great way to start chiseling down the payments.
  • Set Your Own Price – Since you are renting a room out of your house you can choose the price they pay. So if you live in a larger city that has a great deal of events you can raise prices on those days.
  • You choose Your Renters – Renting out your room doesn’t just go to anyone. Before they can stay you can approve or deny them and go on to the next one. This is great for single people renting out rooms.

While using your house as an Airbnb can be a great way to make a passive income on something you do not use you will have to make sure it stays clean and usable.

7.Sell Free Things on Craigslist

I have mentioned this method briefly in another article. So I will try to explain deeper into methods to make money selling free items off of craigslist. If you go to Craigslist you will be able to navigate to the free section of craigslist.

This is where people have no need to sell the item and just want it gone. What this means to you is that it is almost straight profit, minus gas to pick it up.  What you do is look at the item and go ahead and look it up on google/amazon and see what the price is for the product. If it is worth anything you can go ahead pick it up.

Once you pick it up you can sell it on sites like:

  • Facebook
  • Craigslist
  • Amazon

You have a chance to make almost 100% profit on all the items you pick up. Which if its free you will be making profit every time you pick up something. That is great.
