MAKE YOUR OWN PRODUCTS AND SELL THEM ONLINE
I'm constantly on the lookout for new ways to earn extra money doing something your enjoy. With that in mind I've been trying out the site Zazzle.
It's fantastic. For free, they give you all the tools you need to create products that you design. They could be almost anything, cards, stickers, t-sharts, mugs etc. Basically you come up with the design and upload it into one of their very easy to use templates and then you submit it for review. Once that's done it's up there on the site (which gets massive traffic, BTW) and people can buy it if they wish.
They do all the order processing, mailing of the products etc. And because they've provided the raw materials (eg cards, clothing) on which your design is printed, most of the payment goes to them, but you still get a commission.
Obviusly, if you have expereince as a designer you'll be way ahead of the pack here. But you don't have to have any formal training, or even natural talent, to come up with products that people like and buy.

Also, if you sign up you can prmote the whole site as an affiliate, and get a commission that way too. So, you don't even have to create any products to earn some money.
So, lots of reasons to join up.
If an when you have done so, I might be able to help you promote your Zazzle store online. Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are ideal for this. But you definitely need to build up an engaged network of followers first. I can show you how to do that in a private lesson or two.
