Are you a creative looking to make money from your passion? We can help. Believe it or not, there are great business opportunities in the creative space. Here are some.
Sell your artwork
Many people think paintings when we talk about selling artwork, but art is so broad. This could be selling anything from your photography work, to jewellery and sculptures, all the way down to glasswork and embroidery. Start by finding your niche (market), doing some research into it and then create work that you know customers would appreciate and buy into.
Become a YouTuber
Being a YouTuber is probably the biggest trend to hit our socials right now, and when done right, it can turn you into a brand that makes quite a lot of money. With fast internet, great content and some great video editing skills, amongst many other things, you can literally start your own YouTube channel from the comfort of your own home. Before you know it, you could be a self-made brand that sponsors and other brands will be dying to work with.
Start a clothing line
If you’re a fashion designer, you’re in luck. People are going to need clothes until the end of time, so there’ll always be a place for you in the creative business space. Like any other business, it might be wise for you to find a specific market that you’re targeting. This will make things easier for you in terms of marketing your business and standing out from all the other clothing brands. You can read this article for some clothing start-up inspo.
We all love to see some quality artwork, regardless of the medium. So if you’re a skilled artist, now is the perfect time to put those artistic skills to good use and help other aspiring artists to gain new skills of their own. The best part about starting this business is that it can happen in your own home and there’s not much of a need to purchase equipment. You can provide small and intimate lessons where everyone brings their own materials and you simply offer your expertise.
Get into home agriculture
“Home agriculture”, we know. Quite an unfamiliar term, but to be honest, it’s just a fancier way of saying “gardening”. Many people still invest and love their gardens and plants, so there’s definitely a market to tap into as far as that goes. And yes, this requires an extensive amount of heart and creativity, so it’s another great business opportunity in the creative space.
If you’re a creative with an entrepreneurial mindset, there’s really no need for you not to use your creative skills to start your own business. Take the leap of faith and use your skills to be your own boss- you have nothing to lose. If you have more creative business ideas, share them with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
