WordPress is the most powerful blogging and content management platform. No other platform can compete with the availability of themes to apply for WordPress websites. A lot of developers are working day and night for WordPress theme development. The vast majority of websites are self-hosted on WordPress. It gives a great opportunity for the template developers.

The minimum skill required to become a Professional WordPress Theme developer is to have a good knowledge of Photoshop, HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, PHP or Ruby. You need to research about the mass level selling themes and it's price. Get an idea from those themes and use your brain to create WordPress themes. 

Your theme shouldn't look exactly similar to the existing themes. Users won't buy those themes and they call it as a copycat. You have to do a lot of modifications to make it as unique. If you are a gifted developer, you can easily stand from the crowd. To monetize your themes, you could either start a new website for promoting and selling or you could directly sell your themes on the biggest online marketplace for themes. 

The topmost theme selling marketplaces are:

These marketplaces will get the commission from your sales. The commission might be 40-50% which seems to be huge but really it's worth. You don't need to promote your theme, they will. Your themes will reach millions of users within few hours and that's the specialty here. Immediately you could start to earn based on the order placed by the users. 

2. Become One of the Mobile App Developers


Every smartphone should have essential apps to use. Millions of mobile users are downloading new apps. If they like it they will stick with the apps. If an app doesn't make changes in their day-to-day life, there is no need to have the crap being installed on their phone. So, they just uninstall it and will try new apps.  A lot of Android and iPhones are being sold every day and you have to choose the platform to develop apps.

You've to learn Xcode, design interfaces and interactions, evaluate the usability of options, and integrating the camera, photo, and location information in order to enhance your app for a stunning performance.

To develop an Android app, you must have learned the languages such as Java with Google SDK for Android, C/C++ language with Google NDK for Android. If you know Python, it will be easy to create an android app within 8 hours. Else you could learn Kivy as an alternative to develop android apps. 

You could monetize your app on Play Store. For monetization, you will need to to have an AdMob account which is used to serve ads on android phones whenever the app is connected to the Internet. Make sure you build an Android app which always requires an Internet connection. 

Note: AdMob requires you to have a valid AdSense account and AdWords account. If you don't have one or both of these accounts, you could sign-up to monetize your app on Play Store.

If you would like to develop an app that should be available on both iTunes Market and Play Store, you need to check PhoneGap, a platform to create an app on any platform using web technologies like HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3. However, in order to give more Graphics to your app, then you need to go to native codes such as C++, Java on Android, Objective-C in iOS.

4. Facebook Business Page


Do you have a Facebook page? Do you have at least 100K followers on your page? If your answer is to be Yes, you could earn a decent income by marketing brand's product through your Facebook page. It is called as affiliate marketing via the Facebook page. What you need is huge Likes and followers for your page and high exposure to the public. i.e your page should reach more people with likes and comments for every post.

People who have the passion for reading books should start a site especially for reviewing books online to earn money. If you have read a lot of books since your childhood, probably this is going to work for you. You could easily review many books than anyone. I won't recommend this method for newbies who just started to read books. 

Review-books-and-earn

Have you seen the books selling on Amazon? You could also see the customer reviews and ratings for the books. The book might be either Hardcover or e-Book. Higher the number of positive reviews and ratings for a book, higher the sales will be. It is very essential to convince a buyer to purchase the book. 

After starting a site for providing book reviews, you need to review a book which is already available on Amazon. Make sure you provide the Pro's and Con's of the content in the book after completely reading. At the end of your review give a link to Amazon's e-commerce site. This will help the visitor to buy the book after finished reading your review. If you have the selling skill to convince the buyer, you could make sales daily depending on your site's popularity. 

To get paid, you should set up an Amazon Associate account and then link the book to your site through your unique ID which will be given by Amazon's affiliate programStart reviewing and start selling.
