1. Design and printing on T-Shirts
Create impressive images, logos, or compelling text via Photoshop or other graphic design package. Get your creations printed on tee shirts and start selling them online.
In order for you to make money with designing and selling shirts, here are some steps you can take:
– You can get registered in any of the online shopping sites like amazon.com, ebay.com etc to find customers.
– Tell your friends and family about your new venture.
– Design a website. Advertise in websites or forums, social networks, amongst friends, or via other traffic methods.
2. Make and sell accessories and custom made jewellries
If you have a passion for making home made accessories and jewelry then this is a great idea for you, make fashion accessories and jewellries, create unique accessories and of course, make them beautiful as well,
– Determine your market, are they for kids, teens, or for grown ups or is there something for everyone, people are attracted to things that are unique so make yours so.
– Create a website and put up images of your products, never underestimate the power of having a web presence, register in online shopping sites like Amazon and Etsy
– Tell your friends and family, they can be your best supporters
– Use your social network to advertise.
3. Selling unused items on eBay or amazon
Another idea is to sell unused items on eBay or amazon or even sites like gumtree, create an online shop and put up images of your products, do note that these markets value good reputation, as in other markets, so don’t sell products in bad conditions, ensure your products are either new or as good as new, create a great reputation and this will go a long way, you can also create a website and make it your online store.
4. Write and sell an Ebook
Ebooks are becoming even more popular, with the emergence and growth of smart phones and devices and ebook readers, ebook publishing is creating a huge market. So if you love writing and want to write a book, now is a good time to start. Do keep in mind though that there are great books and not so great ones, and with ebooks and self publishing, many people are quite skeptical of the standard of ebooks, so make yours of great quality, do not rush into writing and selling your ebook, proofread, edit and rewrite your ebook, you don’t want to publish an ebook and gain a reputation of a rubbish author.
Publish your ebook on sites like Amazon, wattpad, Nook etc, you can also create a website and sell your ebook there, adding a sample of your ebook on your page is a great way to get readers interested.
