Creating a Mobile Independent Artist Business - Part 10: Opportunities to make money (Part B)

Last post I began describing a few Opportunities to make money from your art. This post I'll continue on with a few more ways. As mentioned previously this list is by no means exhaustive. I do not recommend any particular opportunity over another. Some I have personally tried whilst others I have discovered in the course of writing this article. You should do your own research to see if an opportunity is the right fit for your goals.

The main purpose of presenting these opportunities is to simply broaden your knowledge of the many possibilities online for making money from your art.

If there were such opportunities, those would be the only ones I'd recommend.

The good news is, successful sales are not a random occurrence. There are things you can do to help you find a market for what you create.

Laws and options vary from country to country so I will not be covering anything in too much detail. Do your own research in each area to see if it has relevance to your business.
