How to Make More Money as an Artist

If you have enough talent as an artist, there should not be that many problems finding enough work. In fact, some would argue that artists have it quite easy these days.

It might be a bit different if you have left your previous job and went freelance but fret not. The internet opens a lot of doors for those who are willing to learn and strive towards their goals.

The ideas below should give you plenty of inspiration if you are finding yourself in a tough spot. Make sure to continue reading.

Print on Demand
You have certainly heard about custom-made t-shirts. These days, though, there is much more than just this particular merchandise. Mugs, hoodies, calendars, mousepads, and anything else you come up with will sell as long as the art on the product looks appealing.

Starting this for the first time might be a bit intimidating. Therefore, it would be good to start with some research. Websites like Printify can do a lot of good as they have almost every piece of information.

Also, it might be worth your while to research how can you use print on demand with Printify and make the best out of this new venture.

Print on demand is one of the cornerstones of e-commerce. Working in this industry is certainly worth all the effort as it can become your sole source of income and sustain you for the remainder of your life.

According to one of Nasdaq’s publication in 2017, at least 95% percent of shopping will be facilitated by e-commerce. This stat alone should get you interested.

3D Printing
3D printers might be a bit expensive for an average person, but if you are planning a business, you can certainly get one yourself and open a store for those who would be interested in working with it.

3D printing
is one of the things that will continue to influence the world and if you can, you should get in on that too.

Video Games
One of the most popular pastime activities these days is playing video games. While some people argue that it is a bad habit, there have been plenty of data to counteract these worries.

Creating worlds, characters, even smaller items in a video game requires a lot of effort and a skilled pair of hands. Given how the industry is expanding, landing a position in it is a dream for a lot of artists out there.

Web Design
For this one, you will need to learn some coding skills. HTML, CSS, and WordPress knowledge is a great weapon to have at your disposal. And when you combine it with the artistic side, making a pretty penny becomes almost too easy.

Graphic Design
Marketers are looking to get the attention of as many customers as they can. And one of the best methods to do that is by creating appealing and informative graphics.

If you were to take this route, you should be more than happy with the amount of work available. Social media campaigns, magazine and book covers, newsletters, even greeting cards require a touch of design.

Teaching is not something that anyone can do, but if you feel like you are up for this task, then, by all means, give it a try.

And as far as teaching goes, you do not have to necessarily stand in front of a class. With websites like Udemy and Skillshare, you can create courses and post them online. It is similar to running a YouTube channel, except the monetization method is different.

If you have a talent for art, you will likely have a way with words too. Writing is challenging because you will need to spend a lot of time figuring out what to write about. But if you can come up with interesting content consistently, it should not be a problem.

Starting with a simple blog is always a good idea, and once you get to build your audience, you can branch out to more serious things, like publications in biggest journals or even writing a book.

Makeup Artist
The industry is always looking for talented makeup artists. It is worth pointing out that you do not have to bother with beauty school. If you can showcase your skills on social media platforms via videos of your work, you are bound to be noticed sooner rather than later.

In a word, there are plenty of paths you can take as an artist who is looking to make more money. Combining a couple of ideas into one is also not out of the question, and as long as you are willing to move forward, you will be perfectly fine.
