You’re already creating amazing website designs and branding that make the Internet a more beautiful place. But did you know your design skills could also generate passive income?

Imagine making money even while you’re watching your favorite Netflix show or exploring Pantone’s color of the year.

Curious? Here are ten exciting ways to add passive income to your Showit design business. And don’t worry, your coffee breaks are safe!

In this post we will cover:

Ways to make passive income for designers

1. Host Your Own Online Webinars

Let’s face it, your skills are something others would love to have, like perfectly ripe avocado toast on a Sunday morning. Host webinars or online courses teaching others the magic of Showit design, and your bank account will thank you!

Revolving Revenue was built off of the need to fill a gap with our template customers and how they could infuse passive income into their own websites. Or our friend Katie with her webinar and course, Showit-All, geared towards newbie designers. She seen a need and filled it!

2. Affiliate Marketing is Your New Best Friend

Recommend products you love, and get a kickback. Plus, everyone loves to make money off their favorite things and society nowadays is conditioned to look for that Resources page on your site… so fill it with your tried and true! It’s like setting up a lemonade stand, but with less sunburn and more profit!

3. Don’t Just Design Logos, Sell Them!

If designing a logo is your jam, so why not make it into a marmalade of passive income? Put old client logo rejects into your premade brand shop and watch your designs fly off the digital shelf.

Still can’t let go of the reins? You can always sell them as semi-custom brands and have them done in a fraction of the time. No more waiting weeks for one comment from a client!

4. Create an E-book

Yes, it sounds scary, like a horror movie. But it’s not! Pen down your expertise in an eBook and watch it become the new Harry Potter of the design world.

5. Monetize your Blog

Already got a blog? Sweet! Monetize it. Display ads, sponsored posts, or affiliate links. Let those visits to your blog turn into visits to your bank!

6. Sell Custom Fonts and Digital Assets

Got a flair for typography? Sell your custom fonts, icons, and other digital assets. It’s like spring cleaning, but you’re selling digital assets instead of your old CDs. 💿

7. Launch a Membership Site

If you’re more of the social type that thrives on connection, consider creating a membership or community for like minded designers.

8. Get on YouTube

People love to watch others work. It’s weird, but true. Create time-lapse videos of your design process and monetize your channel.

9. Licensing Your Work

Got leftover designs that maybe didn’t make the cut? Sell 1:1 or one-to-many licenses of your work for merch or prints. It’s like renting out your condo, but less cleaning!
