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 lives. 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, Kylie Jenner, Shakira 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 dollar a month after 5 years? Possible with hard work and consistency. So no idea where to start and do you want to make money online with blogging? Take a good course like this masterclass, work hard and have faith. And of course be patient. Blogging won’t make you rich overnight.
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!
Patreon is a membership platform that allows creators to earn a recurring income by offering exclusive content and perks to their fans. Creators can set up different membership tiers with varying levels of access to content and bonuses, and fans can choose which story they want to subscribe to.
Artists can use Patreon to offer their fans exclusive access to their artwork, behind-the-scenes content, early access to new projects, and personalized artwork. They can also provide one-on-one consultations or personalized painting for higher-tier subscribers.
To make money with Patreon as an artist, building a following and creating engaging content that resonates with your audience is essential. This can be done through social media, blog posts, or other online platforms. Once you have a following, you can create a Patreon account and offer exclusive content and perks to your fans.
One of the most significant differences between Patreon and OnlyFans is the type of content typically offered on each platform. While artists generally use Patreon to provide exclusive access to their artwork and creative process, OnlyFans is primarily known for its adult content.
In terms of how much artists can make with Patreon, it varies depending on the individual creator and their level of success. Some artists have created a full-time income through their Patreon memberships, while others may only make a few hundred dollars a month. It takes time and effort to build a following and create engaging content, but with dedication and hard work, it is possible to make a living through Patreon as an artist.
