5 Ways You Can Make Money Being Creative

February 04, 2008 By Gus in Miscellaneous


Are you the creative type? Are you tired of people asking you to share your creativity for free? I understand how you feel.

People have told me I was creative. They asked me to work on projects, but when it came to compensation, they expected me to work for free, often using the excuse, “think of all the exposure you’ll get.” Exposure, spamosure. I gotta pay the rent.

I told myself, if I ever get the opportunity to work with creative people, I will compensate them for their work.

Here are 5 fun ways you can make money at MiamiBeach411:

  1. Write a Movie Review - Earn $100 Last year, the two largest newspapers in South Florida decided to no longer employ movie reviewers. That same week, MiamiBeach411 started paying people to write movie reviews. Why? Because there have been so many movies and TV shows filmed here, we thought it would be cool to publish a review about each one. How do you get paid? Just write a review of any movie or TV show from this list of films and earn $100.
  2. Write a Carl Hiaasen Book Review - Earn $100 Everyone is looking for a good book to take on vacation, and Carl Hiaasen books are the best! Want to earn some extra dough just by reading a book? Write a review about any of Carl Hiaasen’s books and we’ll pay you $100.
  3. Write an Article - Earn $125 Got a story you think our readers will enjoy? MiamiBeach411 pays writers $125 for featured articles. Want to find out more? Just email your story idea to us, if it’s something we think fits with our site, we’ll pay you $125 to write it.
  4. Shoot a Photo Essay - Earn $125 Got an eye for photography? MiamiBeach411 pays photographers $125 to shoot a photo essay and write up a short review. It works the same way as featured articles.  Pitch us your idea for a photo essay, and if it’s something we feel our reads will enjoy, we’ll pay you $125 to shoot it.
  5. Make a Hotel Video - Earn $200 Did you shoot a video review of a Miami Beach hotel? We want to see it! If your video meets our guidelines, you’ll get paid as well. MiamiBeach411 pays $200 to our filmmakers. In order to qualify, the video must meet these simple guidelines.

Writers, photographers, filmmakers, make money doing what you love to do.

Share your creativity with the 400,000+ people who use our site every month and get paid. To find out more about working with MiamiBeach411, contact us today!
