Note: There are affiliate links
We’re in downtime now thanks to corona/Wuhan/COVID-19. What better time to pick up a new skill and make money!
We live in the best time period in history. It’s even easier to make money thanks to the internet.
There are so many people on YouTube and outside of it that know how to make videos or make video-related content.
The problem is no one knows how to do so.
Making a website is easier and cheaper than ever before.
Our phones have cameras that shoot video that looks as good as a $10k camera!
There are websites where you can sell your services to people that might need them!
I’ll go over some of my methods of making money on the side.
How To Use Fiverr
Fiverr is a freelancing site where users can sell their services to help out various individuals.
One common (and in my opinion the best) use of this site is to offer video/media services.
If you have After Effects, you can make money by helping YouTubers.
Many content creators don’t have the know how or time to create the effects they need for their videos.
The most common method Fiverr freelancers use to make money is using graphics from Envato.
Creating graphics takes a lot of skill and dedication to make them perfect.
Video Hive makes that process easier for your personal projects AND for the projects of others!
There are thousands of After Effects graphics one could use to make for a content creator.
This works best if you find a way to stand out from the competition because there are others that do this.

Affiliate marketing is probably the easiest way to make money online.
You have viewers or readers click on a link provided. If they like the product enough, they’ll buy it and you get a percentage.
The links in the Fiverr example are affiliate links.
If you click on them, I get a percentage. If you buy the product, I get even more money.
Here’s the simplest way to describe affiliate:
The product you are reviewing is $10. The affiliate commission is 10%.
Someone clicks on the link to the item and buys it.
You get $1 while they get $9.
You can do affiliate marketing through YouTube video reviews or blog reviews.
Making a blog is easier than ever before.
My preferred choice for hosting is Siteground.
They’re cheap and super easy to use.
WordPress is implemented and no coding is required.
The best way to use affiliate marketing is finding an online creator, making a relationship with them, buying their product, reviewing it, and letting them know.
They can use their platform to give you exposure and their followers will go to your site to buy from you.
Create your own product
Imagine you have a skillset or knowledge that you want to share to the world.
You have the talent and the skills to talk about it but you don’t know where to go!
One site I use to sell any products that I have is through Gumroad.
Gumroad allows creators in any field to sell their knowledge with very little hassle.
Before Gumroad, I used to use Udemy. This is a site where you can upload video tutorials.
The problem with Udemy is it’s too restrictive on how much you can upload.
They’re also very strict on how much time each tutorial needs to be.
With Gumroad, you don’t have to deal with that!
You can upload video tutorials, books, programs, whatever you can think of!
One great feeling with using Gumroad is getting notifications that someone bought your product.
One such program I have is my class on Edit Videos Faster & Easier With Adobe Premiere Pro.
If you want to know more about Gumroad, read this review from Jose Rosado.
I’ve said this before, but networking is the best way to make money online.
If you want to make money, you NEED to network with people on social media.
Networking is one of the most important things anyone looking to make money online should do.
It’s a very valuable skill to acquire if you do it right.
Here’s the thing: advertising is expensive. The bigger your influence, the more expensive it can be.
However, if you’ve networked properly and have a huge following on Twitter or Instagram, advertising becomes much easier.
Because your audience will promote you via word of mouth.
Teach a language online
There’s neat online program out called Italki.
Here, you can tutor people that want to learn your native language.
I use it to work with people that want to speak English!
All you need is a phone or computer with a great internet connection.
What I love about Italki is they give teachers creative freedom to how you can teach your class.
What’s even better is teachers are strongly suggested to make an introduction video.
One secret to getting more students is through this method.
The more “professional” your video looks, the more students you’ll get.
The more likable you are in your introduction video, you’ll get more students.
Putting your videos in subtitles your mother language, along with speaking slowly, you’ll for sure get students.
If you’re serious about making a video, you can always learn how to edit or you can message me and I will help you out.

Making money online is easier than ever before.
All it takes is for you to be active in all you do.
It also takes you having the right tools to do so.
If you’re serious about this, give what I have written above a chance and track your results.
Peace & love!
