Website or blog

What is probably the best way to make money off of your hobby is to build a website or blog. If you are familiar with the internet, you have probably ran into dozens of websites and blogs as you search for different things. You probably follow a few websites that talk about things that you are passionate about.

Those websites make money every time you come to their website, or every time they give you advice on purchasing certain products. They don’t make a lot, but if they can get enough people to their site, then the small amount they make per person adds up pretty quick.

Teaching

Most people don’t consider themselves teachers. However, everybody is an expert at something. You don’t have to go teach math or science, there are plenty of ways you can use the internet to teach people about things that you are actually passionate about. Even if you are passionate about something like online gaming, there are ways to teach online and make money off of that.

A great example of this is this flower shop in Utah. They built a quick website and now offer classes to work with flowers. They turned their passion into an income through teaching and they did it in a niche that many people would have not thought was possible.

Try joining clubs and organizations with people that are just as passionate about your hobby as you are. As you connect and work with other people you can recommend programs and products that you use on a daily basis. Each time you do this you have the potential to make money. Software companies are particularly notorious for this. Many will pay as much as $100 for a single referral.

If you go this route, be sure to always tell the truth. Never recommend the company because it pays a lot, only recommend companies because you genuinely love and use them. This way of making money off of your hobby requires you to have a name built up for yourself as an honest helpful person.
