Selling Your Creativity
Tell me more: Turn your hobby into cash. If you’re a creative person, you can make cash doing what others can’t do— being creative.
What does it entail? Creating handmade products or offering creative services. Some examples: selling handmade items – such as knitted goods, embroidery, jewelry, wedding and party favors, etc.— cake decorating, photography, gardening and garden design, and more.
How much can I make? Handmade one-of-a-kind products sell for as much as $50 online depending on the item. Novice photography services can make a couple hundred dollars depending on talent and the event.
Where are the jobs? Etsy.com is the best place online to sell anything handmade. Also check out local flea markets, and to offer local creative services, Craigslist.org.
