10 Hobbies That Can Pay Off

Web Design

Don't we all envy the lucky few who understand Web design? It's tricky and complex, and therefore expensive. If you have a knack for Web design, you can make extra cash selling your services and talent to a variety of customers. After all, there is little to no overhead; any money you spend up front is for the software and computer (which you probably already have) and for marketing and promotional materials. If you need to establish an online portfolio, start with your own site, then move on to your friends, non-profits or a small local retail store, and offer to build a few for free if necessary. Ask them to provide you with a stellar review that you can include on your own site. Pass out business cards, network at events, and advertise on your Facebook and LinkedIn pages. Again, your work speaks for itself in Web design, so word-of-mouth marketing is the key to your success.
