Now these days there are almost 100’s of new designers join freelancing world each day but they don’t know how they can be successful.
I was started my carrier as a designer and now i am making enough to enjoy my life 🙂
So here I’ll show you some great sources to Earn Money Online as Web Designer.
The only unique and best weapon for a freelancer web and graphic designer is that they have complete freedom how they manage their work, time and rates.
But still you have to impress your clients so they get back to you and you can charge what you want.
Some of these sources are slow money making but as “WARREN BUFFET said”
“NEVER DEPEND ON SINGLE INCOME. MAKE INVESTMENT TO CREATE A SECOND SOURCE.”
So it doesn’t matter how much you make but you must have a second backup income source.
Here are the Some Best Sources to Earn Money Online as Web Designer
Fiverr is the latest and best platform right now, you can post a gig based on your services and can make huge money from that gig. Read this post i wrote about Fiverr Best Way to Make Money With Fiverr Gig
Recently converted from Odesk and Elance to Upwork. Currently best freelancing platform for individual and longterm jobs. Most of freelancers prefer to work on upwork as there are alot of companies and clients and they hire for part time job and long term regular positions.
Freelancer is another big platform for freelancer exactly like Upwork but on freelancer they have some extra features like selling your content on freemarket participating in design contest and also you can buy and sell your domains and established websites.
A big huge platform for designers who are really creative and can beat other designers. Here you can register for FREE and can participate in contest, read contest brief, make a creative design, submit in contest and if you are lucky or creative you can WIN easily and minimum you can win is $200 so if you get succeed on 99Designs you are going to be rich fast 🙂
If you really a very creative and professional designer and can produce unique designs then Themeforest is the best place for you. You can create a theme or website template in Photoshop and can submit it to themeforest but they don’t accept every design so you have to be very creative and smart to get your design accepted and one it’s accepted they have massive amount of clients so you are going to make a lot of money in no time.
Graphicriver is a part of envato same as themeforest but this is only for designers and you can submit all kind of graphics work on graphicriver and can make lifetime earning.
Creativemarket is same as Graphicriver and themeforest but its a different platform you can submit all kind of stuff including designs, wordpress themes, plugins etc…
Make Your Own Blog
Creating your own blog to share your portfolios to your clients or to sell your designs directly is also a good idea for that you have to be very smart with the knowlege of SEO. I’ll soon release a post for Making Your Own Blog guide so you can easily get started.
Tip: For Themeforest, Graphicriver and creative market you can use 1 design and can sell on both platform but for that you will need to pay some extra fee but you can have more sales and more money.
