Who doesn’t like passive income?!? Passive income is income that requires minimal work to earn. Aside from the main service you offer (whether that be website design, branding, graphic design, etc.), passive income is a MUST!
Here are 5 ideas that creatives can use to make passive income:
If you’re a website designer, making and selling website templates is an amazing way to make passive income. I sell Showit website templates through my website, as well as on Etsy and Creative Market. Selling on various platforms is a great way to boost your online exposure.
If you’re not a website designer, you can still make templates! Whether you make logo templates, brand templates, business card templates, or poster templates, they will SELL! Templates are perfect for those clients that aren’t prepared to spend the amount a custom design costs – but still want something creative and beautiful.
For those who sell services, creating courses is a great way to make passive income. Are you a website designer? Make a course for website basics, SEO courses, etc. Are you a coach? Make a course! Are you a brand designer? Make a course! Whatever your service is, a course is always beneficial to your client base.
Creating an eBook will definitely take some time in the beginning, since you have to write it from start to finish, but it will pay off in the long run. You can list your eBook on Amazon where it can get a ton of exposure. You can also sell it directly on your website as a PDF.
This tip is for all of you graphic designers out there! If you’re skilled at creating social media graphics, selling these is a great way to make passive income! For most people who aren’t skilled with graphic design, creating graphics for social media can be extremely time-consuming. This is the main reason why people are purchasing premade Instagram graphics to customize and post!
Something to keep in mind is that not all people have Photoshop, so ideally, you’ll want to sell graphics that can be customized on free platforms such as Canva.
Of course, there are a ton of free fonts to use on Google Fonts, but if you’re like me, you LOVE finding beautiful and creative fonts that you can purchase and use for websites, graphics, logos, etc. If you’re a graphic designer, creating custom fonts for people to purchase is such an amazing way to make passive income. Here’s a great blog that can teach you how to make custom fonts! You can sell these fonts on sites like Creative Market or MyFonts.
