136 - How to Make Money with Your Creative Work
I'm going to gloss over the conversation about whether or not you should make money with your creative endeavors. I firmly believe that there is a happy place where you can get paid to do what you love.
Yes, you can also sell out. I can't tell you where that line is, but I think you know it in your heart when you do it.
Here are some common revenue streams for creative people:
- books or ebooks
- online courses
- coaching- group or individual
- membership sites
- paid teaching - at a school or workshops online or in person
- affiliate sales
- sponsored blog posts or social media posts
- ads on your site
- physical products
- side jobs - editing, freelancing, being a virtual assistant, etc
Those aren't all the ways you can make money, but some of the more common ways creative people are making money online. I see a lot of people talking about the ways you can make money with these various revenue streams, but not a lot of people are talking about the COST. I don't mean financially, though that is a factor. I'm going go dive deep into how you can consider the costs of these revenue streams.
