I always can’t thank my readers enough for being such an on-going support for my journey. I love using my blog as a space to share and connect with other like-minded individuals. My blog and social media have provided so many amazing opportunities to me and it was all possible due to you guys.
While I started out my blog a little over 4 years ago as a creative outlet, I’ve expanded my interest over the past year. I’ve traveled more, created and sold my very own presets available here, invested my capital in stocks, and now I’ve taken up a couple of acting classes. Constantly working on myself for self-improvement is something I highly value and I strive to be an inspiration to those around me. I’m constantly learning to be the best version of myself and I’ve been feeling so much more fulfilled with my path.
I started diversifying my revenue stream as a freelancer, which has really helped me financially in not becoming dependent on doing sponsorships that don’t really align with my personal brand.
Here’s a list of additional revenue streams you can look into as a freelancer that worked for me:
- Invest your Capital in Stocks. If you’re not savy on investments, read books and educate yourself. S&P 500 has an average 10% increase annually if you want to invest in a stock that’s low risk.
- Sell A Product. I created my digital presets since it is a minimum viable product. The cost to create it is $0 plus sales tax do not apply to digital products. It’s also nice not having to worry about shipping for someone like me who travels a lot and this was a great gateway product to get an idea if I wanted to create a business for myself in the future.
- Sell Items on Ebay and Poshmark. As a blogger, I’m blessed to get a number of free beauty products and clothes in the mail. For clothes that no longer have a place in my closet, I resell them to a new home. For any items you have laying around in the house that you don’t need, resell them and declutter your home.
- Getting Featured in Film, Commercials, and Print Work. I absolutely love spending money on investing in myself so I’ve been taking acting classes to be more comfortable on camera. I started applying to castings and I’ve booked a couple of projects from short films to commercials. Not only is it a fun, learning experience, but it’s also been a great way for me to network with others in the creative entertainment industry. I wanted to get more into traditional media such as tv and magazine to supplement the type of work I am doing now.
- Affiliate Links. There are some ads on my blog that I regularly pull money from on a monthly basis. Some ads are based on CPM (cost per thousand impressions), while others are CPC (cost per click). I find ads that are commission based earn the most for me. Rewardstyle and ShopStyle are great options to look into.
