Well, you will need some photography and editing skills to get sells on stock photo sites.

There are many sites which helps photographers to sell thier stock photos but I suggest shutterstock.com to begin with. There are two reason to start with shutterstock.

  1. You can take payout when you reach 35$.

So basically, you need to have 3 skills here which listed below.

  1. Writing skills
  2. S.E.O and other promotional skills to get audience on your blog.

Now, YouTube have grown enough and have lot of users watching lot of videos but you know what? There not enough channels and there is still a gap between viewers and video makers. You can still start from zero and reach big audience.

You will need some editing skills. I suggest to watch other YouTube channels to watch & learn from them. You need to views all the videos with a creator’s eyes.

4. Write And Sell e-Books

Well if you are really good at something, you can consider writing an e-Book. But before you start, make sure that you have sells. Because this is very small industry.
