Creative Ways to Make Money Online 

Looking to start a side hustle capable of replacing your day job? Want to make some extra cash to aid with your savings goals? Whatever your financial/career objectives are, there are no shortage of creative ways to make money online.
In this article, we will share a few examples of how you can take the reins of production into your own hands, and in doing so, shape your destiny.

1) Online gaming 

If you are willing to accept some risk, then playing online games through websites such as is an option that you can explore. Whether your game is roulette, blackjack, slots or craps, there are a number of ways to make some extra cash through these casino sites.

Of all the ways to make money online creatively, this one is the most exciting, as there is no thrill greater than watching reels match up on a slot machine, or winning a hand in blackjack after having doubled down on it.

However, we only suggest that you try this if you have a reservoir of capital separate from your living expenses. Please game responsibly: don’t play with money that you can’t afford to lose.

2) Sell your photography 

Is photography a favorite hobby of yours? Have you spent many hours perfecting the art of a perfectly framed photo? Have you been complimented on your skills by friends and family?  Are you a geek when it comes to using various lenses and filters on your DSLR camera?

If the answer to all of these questions is yes, then it is high time that you take your images and put them online.

There is a thriving market for inventive and original stock images of places, things, and people. No publication worth their salt wants to use a photo that has been used dozens of times before by other outlets, so they are constantly on the outlook for innovative images.

Let your creativity run free, experiment, and make your pictures stand head-and-shoulders above the rest, and you’ll build an enthusiastic clientele within a short period of time.

3) Write and self-publish your own books 

The days of having to beg an editor and a book publisher for a writing contract are long gone. In today’s brave new online world, you can create your own book from the cover art to the liner notes by yourself.

Once it is ready for sale, all you have to do is put it up on a platform such as Amazon for customers to view and purchase.

Now, we are not going to suggest that this is easy, as those that put forth an amateurish effort will have nothing but Amazon hosting bills to show for their half-hearted kick at the can.

However, those that pour a great deal of blood, sweat, and tears into their copy, edit tenaciously, post book blurbs on popular blogs around the net, and outsource tasks that they are not skilled at (e.g. cover art creation and layout) stand a much better chance at realizing a return on their investment.
