6 Ways to make money on steemit.png

And no, you don’t have to resort to selling nakey pictures of yourself for steem!! Get yo’ mind out of the gutter.

I know sometimes people get down about the fact that they can’t earn any more rewards after 7 days. I know that on other blogging platforms, if you create a really great post, it’s considered “evergreen” content that will benefit you forever.

Just because you’re posts stop earning rewards after 7 days doesn’t mean they can’t benefit you forever.

Here are some other things you can do to make $$ on steemit that take a little more effort but are rewarding!

Sell A Product

-@richardcrill is selling his magnesium oil on Amazon AND finding creative ways to accept steem!! That’s what I call thinking outside of the box.

-@karensuestudios is selling an adult coloring book that she made on Amazon! Coloring is scientifically proven to help you calm the freak down when steem prices get low!!

-@stackin sells some pretty cool steemit mugs (or at least he used to)

-Obviously, people who created steem monsters and made it go viral! Genius!!!

If you’ve never created your own product before and want to, feel free to ask me some questions! I’ve created several of my own private label products and sold them on Amazon. I've been selling on there for almost 4 year. I'm kind of getting out of it for a little while. But I still have a lot of experience and knowledge to share (like telling you which mistakes I made that you shouldn't make lol).

If you don’t have a product that you created,and you don’t want to make one, use #steembay to sell something old that you have! @coruscate has a great video you should check out about how to sell items for almost as much as you bought them for!

The stuff she says in her video works. I know because I did a lot of those same things to sell my stuff before coming to Asia 9 months ago. I remember I bought a used Indian saree for a wedding for $70 and sold it for $100!

You can use @steemhunt to earn steem for FINDING cool products!

I'm actually trying something out to fund steemfest!! I'm creating conversation starter tshirts for people who are nervous to talk to people at steemfest, but obviously traveled a long distance for the very purpose of meeting people!

@sjennon also came up with a really cool creative way of selling space on her own tshirt to wear at steemfest!!!! So there are a lot of ways to do things. You can get creative with it.

Affiliate Marketing

-There are people who make $ by promoting something AWESOME that they LOVE. It's called affiliate marketing. I wouldn’t suggest promoting something that you don’t truly love or something you wouldn’t use yourself.

That would make you just come off as a spammy desperate con artist, and nobody likes a spammy conman. It's never good for you or anyone else involved if you just promote and shovel around crap.

So for example, people like @goldmatters and @goldfashioned (and many more) talk about Mene all the time!

And I can see why!! I'm GLAD they talk about it all the time!

Once I learned more and more about this company from my fellow steemians, I was hooked! I love them and talk about them now, too! Can't help it. Don't you talk about things that you love? It's just natural. So hey, maybe you can paid a little also for doing it!

I tried to do it for the first time with my referral link recently and was able to get $100 in Mene credits. And if I can do it, you can do it too! I've never done "affiliate marketing" before.

I was able to buy a $130 pair of earrings, worth $104 in gold, for only $30!! With free, insured shipping!

Find out how you can earn free gold through Mene’s referral program in my post here!

Sponsorships

A company can pay you to write a really dope post for them. Especially if it makes sense to post it on steemit. Maybe write something about a niche crypto-health related project, for example. Health people on steemit would love it!

It's possible to find companies willing to pay for this. You can even show them your best steemit posts as a portfolio piece! Here's a great tutorial from @princessmewmew on how to make a really nice compilation of all of your old posts!

Host An Event

I just realized the other day that @steemcafe hosts the steem creators conference! Yeah, I know. I'm a little slow sometimes.I think it’s a not for profit event...

... but in theory, you could organize your own steemit event and keep at least a little bit of the money for yourself to repay you for your efforts.

This wouldn’t be easy, though. Just saying it would be a HUGE undertaking. But I like to be delusional and think that anything is possible. And if you truly want steemit to be your full time income, maybe there is as creative way to make that happen without waiting for gigantor upvotes that may or may not come consistently.

Do A Task!

I’m sure you’ve heard of @steemgigs! It’s possible to earn steem by designing a logo for someone, or doing any task that someone is hiring you to do under the #steemgigs!

Offer your services to people who are willing to pay steem for your skills!

You could even own a restaurant like @danielwong accepts steem/sbd as payment! If you're in Malaysia, you can go try it out and spend your steem there!

Enter Contests

If you don’t feel like enough people see your posts to get decent upvotes, enter contests! It’ll get you more exposure, but you can also seriously earn money! I think I’ve won about 45 Steem from entering different contests on the platform. Sure, it's all gone now because I've also hosted contests...but it's totally worth it and whenever I win something, I like to keep the giving going by spreading it around.

So contests are seriously worth entering because you really truly DO have a chance at winning. Especially if it's a contest based on a skill you have, like photography, video, writing or logo design.

So, can you think of some other ways to earn steem besides the ones I've mentioned here?

I just decided to sign up for Mene through your link after seeing a contest for it elsewhere. You were the one who introduced me to the idea first.

·

omg that's awesome! no way! thank you!! I always sign up from the first person who introduced me to it, too. It's cool to know that other people do that too!

Hey there, was super bummed to have missed your segment on teh Tarik Sundays with zord. I have a book that I've just written, any thoughts on how to sell it on steemit?

·

wow that's so awesome you wrote a book! Congratulations! I have some ideas swirling in my head! What's the book about? Maybe we can brainstorm ideas on discord

I think i may have to try the nakey pictures but with using a lot of air brushing :)

·

HAHAHA do it!

·
·

Air brushing meaning a super gorgeous stand in pretending to be me lol

·
·
·

haha even better! Why sell your own nakey pics when you can sell other people's nakey pics? lol jk!

·
·
·
·

I may have to to pick my account up.. have you got any pictures you don't want, preferably naked haha i need the money lol

This post was featured in TeamMalaysia 's TehTarik Sundays. Here is a little tip! for your awesome post. Keep on steeming

·

Yay! That was awesome and so much fun! Thank you for this! And thanks so much again @zord189! I'm SO happy that I met you!

·
·

ngawww :)

·
·

Aw! I have been so K.O in the Real World that I kept missing so many things happening in #teammalaysia ... sob sob (sorry @zord189)

You don’t have to resort to selling nakey pictures of yourself for steem!! mmmm why did you give me a wicked idea :-D?

·

haha I mean I guess that it COULD technically be the 7th way hahaha

·
·

hahaha I know right ? and look it seems I've got myself a subscriber already lol

·
·
·

@macchiata!!! Last night on Teh Tarik Sundays, @nomadicsoul mentioned something about striptease.... hahah

·
·
·
·

hmmmm spicy striptease poker uploaded in dtube? :-D

·
·
·
·
·

Hahaha, I dunno.... ask her! Hahaha @nomadicsoul

·

O-ou 😲 Add me to subscriber list if you really decide to do this hahaha :D actually both of you
🙊 :D @nomadicsoul

I agree with you. In my first month into Steemit, I actually sold my inhouse bicycle which has been lying in the house. Will probably start this again & clear my house.

·

THAT'S SO AWESOME!!! I love that!!! Did you sell on steembay?

·
·

I actually posted on teammalaysia DSES Shopping Mall.. Haven't tried steembay but will definitely try.

·
·
·

wow that's amazing! Teem Malaysia is just so freaking awesome

Hi @nomadicsoul,

May I add a 7th way ? Well, it involves upvotes, but not in a usual way : with @share2steem, you can monetize your social media accounts. This app allows users to post directly on Steemit from classic social apps : Instagram, Twitter, Youtube. More to come.
Just register your Steemit account and your social accounts at https://share2steem.com, then, post with your social apps using #share2steem tag, your posts will be published to Steemit automatically.

Hope you'll enjoy !

·

Yes, I LOVE that you're adding a 7th way!! whoaa that's kinda crazy. I haven't heard of that one yet!! I need to try this out. Maybe I'd actually start posting again on my other social media accounts lol thanks for sharing

·
·

Thanks @nomadicsoul, hope you will like it. Feel free to share, we always need help to spread the word !

·
·
·

I def will! thank you!

❤ MWAH!!! ❤

interested in joining the Steemit Bloggers Community?

·

Thank you so much!!

This had led me to think more about the possibilities to earn money through Steemit. Whoa, haven't try affiliate marketing before, neither helping people to write about their product. Awesome guide for us who wanna get some bucks out of here.

·

Well thanks for coming to check it out! I missed some of the audio on your call, so I can't wait for the recording because I want to listen to the whole thing again. Sounds like you're working on some interesting stuff!

·
·

No problem. I am glad to have look through your write up too 😁 right after that, I get myself into Presearch and Mene! Super good tips right there.

Ya, my team is working on a project called 1001 Places to Remember that aims to collect 1001 amazing stories about people, place and experience (just like travel) into a publication. Your works are a fit to this project and we really like to have you on board :) Feel free to learn more from our progressive report.

·
·
·

Well cool, thanks! Hope you signed up through my mene link :) haha if not it's ok! I like using presearch also!!

Yeah it would be really cool to do some stories from your project. I like that idea! Thanks for sharing the report!

·
·
·
·

Haha, I think I used @goldmatters link for Mene but used yours for Presearch as I went to @goldmatters posts to dig out more. Hope you don't mind.

Whoa, it will be awesome to have you. No problem at all, will be dropping by your profile more often to hunt for stories :)

·
·
·
·
·

Of course I don't mind! That's great! He deserves it!!

And wow I have no idea how you found the presearch link, but cool! I noticed when I type something into google AND presearch, I get different results. Their ranking systems are different. Really interesting.

Thanks!! :)

·
·
·
·
·
·

Well, I did a bit of stalking and saw that 😂😂 oops. Once I earned the 8PRE, I off it to return to default google page.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

haha why did you off it? I made presearch my default so I'd get into the habit of using it

btw @evecab, how about you contacting the people from the point number 1 and learn how to sell your surf boards? They look absolutely awesome, I still want one :D

·

dude that's cool! @evecab I want to see them too!

·
·

Oh I will!!!! Thanks @nomadicsoul for all these fantastic options to make some extra cash! I will definitely check that out =)

·

thank you =) I actually will heheh that's a fantastic idea! Now I need to paint more lol

Awesome tips @nomadicsoul!!! You are always coming up with such great ideas. You are such an asset to steem:)

·

RIGHT BACK AT YA!

Nicely summarized.
If have earned JSETokens several times by writing about JSECOIN...

·

That's awesome! That's exactly what I'm talking about! I love this real life example!

Aww thanks for the shout-out!! I had a lot of fun making that post and I hope other people find it helpful too! 😘

Pretty fun that you sold that piece for quite a bit more than you paid for it! Get it!

·

Of course!! I really liked that video a lot. Y

Yep, lol that's the way I justify it whenever I buy things that cost more than I would like to pay. I just say "ehh it's okay 'cause you can resell it" lol

Wow, this is so useful and super great info. Thank you thank YOU!

·

Thank you for reading! :)

I've been taking a break for couple of weeks hahaha

These are truly awesome suggestions for earning extra besides the mundane usual things (like trading and upvotes even). There are just not enough entrepreneurs out there who are willing to game and step out to do something extra besides "playing safe".

Imagine when everyone's doing that, there'll be such a wide selection of things to choose from it becomes (hopefully) a healthy competition and everyone wins. The buyer / investors get the things they need, the entrepreneur gets the business they want.

Wish we can upvote you, but we are building this account to be a good platform to sustain later, that is if @littlenewthings can get her stuffs together in order in the real world soon.

·

Thanks! It's okay, comments are also very appreciated!

·
·

And just when I have decided to pitch out my review on a imitation of a branded pedometer (only with basic but useful functions) with just a fraction of a price.

China itself is already on a huge competitive contest on pitching their best quality workable imitations out there to compete with the giants!

Though I actually do like this cheaper version for its simple usage, and considering receiving orders (as a bulk) for those who are in / passing by Malaysia to get it, just in time for Christmas presents! LOL.

(because it is both Android and iOS compatible)

Nice read with some great info! I bookmarked your page, as you provided some good resources here :)

·

aw thanks! I'm glad it was helpful! Oh also, welcome to steemit!!! If you have any questions about anything, let me know! I'll try to help out where I can

Hello, thanks a lot for this inspiring post. I am trying to find also more ways how to get funding for our conservation program (@kedjom-keku) in Cameroon. Fundition is great. If you do not know it yet, check it out. They are also very nice people behind the project.
Wish you a great day.

·

Yes oh great mention! Fundition is another great way!!! Sounds like an awesome project!!! Just checked out your @kedjom-keku page, there are a lot of interesting posts on there!

Great ideas! As more users join and become engaged, the potential of earning more from these ideas increase as well. Thanks for sharing!

·

Thank you!! You're totally right about that!

Well on the positive side of things you can build a multi million dollar business on steemit like dlive (just hopefully with some morals lol)

Gotta look at the positive side

·

Haha that's true!! Maybe add that as another way (although there's no way I have any idea how to make something like dlive)

I do have lots of things for sale with Reddbubble, suppose I could put a few here somehow...

·

Yeah! You should figure out a way! I'm trying to figure out things like steepay.co and purse.io!! DOOO IT!!

Those are awesome ideas, @nomadicsoul! I can't think of anything to add to these excellent suggestions, but I'll be sure to pop back around if something comes to mind. Thanks for putting this together!

·

Thanks for reading and commenting!! I appreciate it!

·
·

You're very welcome, @nomadicsoul!

Oh we're still accepting STEEM/SBD at the restaurants and food trucks :D

·

Good to know! I'll update that now! Fixed and told people to go spend their steem there lol

·
·

Thanks for the mention! Really appreciate it!.... after reading your post, I gotta post more frequently on the updates of my food outlets... hahaha... good motivation :D

·
·
·

Lol. After you do that, please send me a burger haha

·
·
·
·

If only air mail could send fresh food... haha

·

@danielwong , where is your food truck situated at the moment?

·
·

Great info for Steemians young and old - must keep this up as people join the platform, I wonder also what is happening with various e-commerce project ideas that were going around before. Steem shopping would be cool :)

I upvoted your post.

Keep steeming for a better tomorrow.

thank you!

Really some awesome tips here and the tips u shared during our Teh Tarik Sundays last night!!! I'm sure you have a lot of plans in mind ey? :)

Nice and complete guide @nomadicsoul! Affiliate marketing seems pretty high lately, yet I still think focusing on high quality posts is the best way. Curating for @dtube videos can surely be a nice way to get some juicy STEEM as well!

Lol at the naked photo

Very interesting ideas for sure, leverage your readers you all ready have, even if they might not need what you are selling they may refer you to their friends as well.

Cool nice overview that i'm sure will help many people :-)

If you're really good at writing, you can offer ghostwrite other Steemians' Steemit posts. I'd be happy to do so for busy Steemians whose blogs are being neglected. I'll accept STEEM and SBD as payment.
