There are a few ways to make money online with Photoshop, but it is only with tutorials that I have noticed that the money is nearly guaranteed. In the following article, I will clarify how I breed quite a lot of money every month by making Photoshop tutorials. Of course I make it just because I like photoshop and want to share my knowledge, but it can be a potential passive income channel if you are a webmaster.
The utmost thing in this area this method is that the income is recurring and will slow down but won’t stop for many months after you place in the work and effort. Public will keep linking to you, recommending your website to others and more and more databases will pull your tutorial back to the surface once they notice it. You can just relax, sit back and see the income flowing in. Here is a step-by-step overview of the process.
1. Buy a field name.
/> No matter what it is, just be sure to work the term “tutorials” into the field name and avoid the term “Photoshop” to make sure you won’t run into any copyright issues shortly and have your field full away from you. Many hosts give a free field with each annual sign u: Dreamhost.com, HostGator.com and others.. Just check the web for excellent deals, or any of the hosting evaluation websites to make sure you won’t pay much, at least not at initially.
3. Make a few tutorials for Photoshop. (doh..)
/> The tutorial does not have to be super fancy; though, the better and more sophisticated the tutorial, the more traffic you will get. Be sure to also include screen captures to help clarify the tutorials for every step. You can see some examples of my tutorials, and traffic they breed, excellent tutorials receive over 10,000 hits in half a year, and this is just ONE tutorial submitted to ONE tutorials database site!
4. Add Adverts.
This is the most vital step, be sure you didn’t skip it. Add your Adsense code inside the body of your tutorial or at the end.
/> If you are not an Adsense member, then sign up and become one, because this technique works best with Adsense. You can also try this with Affiliates (on PSwish.com I am promoting Lunar Pages — they give a lot of bonuses so it’s simple to make public sign up as well as Text Link Ads, you register free and sell ads, very simple to refer public since they don’t need to pay!), although I have noticed that overall, I have made more income from Adsense than from direct sales so far on this blog. Another alternative would be so sign up to a banner sales website that measures hits, such as BuySellAds.com, which I recently learned to be very profitable, and having a massive flow of hits can bring you a few excellent sales.
5. Upload and submit your tutorial.
/> After making your tutorial, upload it in WordPress to your website. Get the URL for the tutorial and then submit it to the tutorial submission websites. You can find a fantastic post by toptut.com with a few dozens of high traffic Photoshop Tutorials websites.
After you have done the above 5 steps, just wait for your tutorials to get accepted by the tutorial submission sites. Once they get accepted, your tutorial URL will be featured on their sites as a direct link. You will then start to get clicks on the Adsense ads. Even with a click-through-rate of in this area 1% you will still see the revenue flowing in. You may even be shocked to see how much traffic these tutorial submission sites will breed for you!
