A designer has many ways to earn but if you are looking for ways to make good amount of money quickly and you are skilled with designing then you can write for sites that pay you for your tutorials. You can make easy money ranging from $50-$300 just from a single article. I myself have submitted tutorials and articles and get paid through PayPal which is their preferred way of making payment.
By writing tutorials & articles, you not only earn money but you also get a link back to your website/blog that diverts important web traffic to your website which can help you to get more clients. Do remember that after submitting tutorial and once tutorial get published in a website then it becomes that website’s property and then you cannot publish that complete tutorial in any website including your website too. However you can take few steps to generate your reader’s interest and then link back to the tutorial website for complete tutorial.
