Updated: Aug 23, 2023

"Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art."

Do you love writing? Are you the creative type who enjoys expressing yourself through words and writing? If so, making money from your passion has never been easier. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to make money online by creating content. So whether you're a blogger, a YouTuber, or just someone who likes to share their thoughts and ideas online, there's a way to monetize your skills and make a consistent stream of income.

Listed below are ten different ways to make money online with content creation:

Sell E-books

We all have a story to tell that will inspire, motivate and change someone's life. If you have something valuable to say, package it up as an e-book and sell it online? E-books are easy to monetize because you’re selling your knowledge and sharing your ideas with the world. In addition, platforms like Amazon Kindle make it easy to self-publish your e-book and reach a global audience. Check out my latest ebook/workbook here.

Create an Online Course

People are anxious to learn. Gone are the days of just learning in the classroom. Now you can take the classroom with you wherever you go. Are you a subject matter expert in anything? If so, develop an online course and sell it on a platform like Udemy or Teachable. This is a great way to earn passive income by sharing your knowledge with others. Check out some of my classes here.

Sell Stock Photos

If you're a keen photographer, you could make money by selling your photos online. Stock photo websites often allow you to upload your images and receive a commission whenever someone buys one of your pictures.

Start a Blog

A great way to make money online is to start a blog and include affiliate links. Yep.. you're reading mine and affiliate links are included. These links can be your own products/services or from AMAZON or other sources that allow you to make an additional stream of income. The cool thing is you can earn a commission whenever someone clicks on one of your links and makes a purchase. It's an easy way to share what you love with others and make some quick cash.

Become a YouTube Content Creator

I started my channel 12 years ago uploading my son's basketball games and I wish I would have not stopped. God only knows where I would be now. Since then I've been monetized twice and have made some decent monthly money. Nothing to write home about, but a $200 dollars here and there has allowed me to invest in my channel. If you're creative and enjoy making videos, why not start a YouTube channel? As a YouTuber, you will make money with ads and receive payments from sponsorships and brand deals. If you are a business owner, this is a no brainer. Share your business and get some traction with your content. Check out my latest video.

Offer Consulting Services

If you've worked on a job and mastered a skill or if you have expertise in a particular area, you could offer your services as a consultant. This could be anything from coaching people to start their own businesses to offering advice on relationship issues. Consulting has increased in popularity over the years as many people have learned how to diversify what they know into a profitable way to make money.

Sell Products Online

Another effective option for making money online is to sell products. You can promote anything from physical goods to digital products such as e-books and courses. You can sell your products on a platform like Etsy or through your own website. I personally use my website and my Gumroad account.

Write Articles for Other Websites

If you're a good writer, you could make money by writing articles for other websites. This is known as content marketing and is a great way to earn some extra cash.

Create Graphics and Logos

If you're creative and have a knack for design, you could make money by creating graphics and logos for businesses. This is a great way to earn some passive income as you can work on multiple projects at once.

Manage Social Media Accounts

You probably realize that everything a business owner needs to do can be monetized as a service. For example, managing social media accounts for businesses. This involves creating and posting content, interacting with followers, and monitoring the results. It's a lucrative way to earn extra cash or even start a new career.
