Are you a broke artist?

Are you a struggling artist that is struggling to make money with your paintings, designs, or music?

Then turn towards the web. Online is the way for broke artist to make money.

Not only to get discovered with their talent, but also to make money with things like blogging, YouTube or a webshop. You can use your creativity to make money.

I once was there. A broke talented artist working in the health care industry. I always had jobs, from restaurants, coffee bars, till social worker, but still I was looking for a way to reach freedom. I want to be my own boss, make passive income and travel the world.

I have troubles sleeping at night so mornings are a big struggle for me, 3 days a week I wake up so tired and frustrated.

I don’t see myself working for a boss until 67. I don’t even want to think about it.That makes me depressed. I am working for freedom, give me 2 a 3 years with blogging and I can quit working for a boss.

The 2 ways for artist to make money online.


Blogging is not like before, like back in the days when it just came up and everyone started a personal blog about their lifes. With personal blogs it will be harder these days. Its better to start a brand or blog that focus on a target group and to write about popular things. If you not are not famous and you aren’t Rihanna or KIMK then nobody or almost nobody will care about your personal daily life stuff. So find a niche, start a blog for women, a music blog, a blog for men, a blog for entrepreneurs and write about popular topics. Write about famous people, their brands and their products. Give reviews etc. Treat your blog like a brand. Once you are gaining a lot of traffic you can think of monetizing. How to make money blogging? Read this! Don’t expect too much the first years, but 5000 a month after 5 years? Possible with hard work and consistency.


YouTube is hard these days, because there are already so many YouTubers out there. If you are not famous yet and start at 0, its going to be hard. But not impossible. Make video’s where people search for. Give them information just like with blogging. Reviews of popular brands and products are popular. YouTube has a search engine and people search for information in it.

To be honest I am not a YouTube expert yet. I know the basic things and I read a lot about YouTube, but for now I don’t have an account yet. Filming myself? Nah not really my thing..

To be honest I think blogging is more easy now, because many bloggers stopped blogging and focus only on YouTube now.

So broke artist? Keep your head up and find your way on the web!
