Love to sing? You don't have to become a recording artist, sing at weddings or win karaoke competitions to make money from your talent. If you like to sing as a hobby and wouldn't mind making a little extra cash from it, you have plenty of options to get paid to work from home doing this.
Here are a few fun and easy ways to get paid to sing music lyrics online.
Start a YouTube Channel
So many singers get discovered on YouTube. Whether you're looking for your big break or not, starting a YouTube channel can be a great way to attract an audience and get paid for ads.
YouTube has an ads program that you can qualify for once your channel reaches a certain number of page views. You can gain followers by singing covers and taking requests from viewers. Then, you can easily make money by putting ads in your videos.
In addition to ad revenue, you may even be able to make some money by affiliate marketing. If you create a channel that attracts and inspires aspiring singers, you can promote certain projects and services you use to enhance your singing/videos and get paid by referring people to purchase these things.
Create a Music Blog
In addition to your YouTube channel, you can create a music blog to launch multiple streams of income. Starting a blog can be a great way to make a flexible income online. It takes a while to start making money blogging, but if you have a specific audience you intend to reach and quality content, it's not impossible.
You can position yourself as an expert and help aspiring singers enhance their skills or just write about your lifestyle and how music plays a role.
You can monetize your blog with ads, affiliate marketing, sponsorships, and products and services. Learn more about starting your own blog in this post.
Sell Your Song Lyrics
If you consider yourself a good songwriter, think about selling your song lyrics for extra money. There are plenty of legit websites that will allow you to do this so you can work from home.
Some sites will pay to license your songs while others will allow you to set your own sale price or pay you 100% of the royalties your song makes if it sells.
Interested in selling your song lyrics? These are the sites you'll want to check out:
Market Your Skills on Fiverr
Fiverr is a popular site to find people offering gig services from all over the world. Most services start at just $5 and some of the popular tasks involve web or logo design, writing, and editing but there's a wide variety of tasks offered on the site.
At my old job, my boss paid someone on Fiverr to create cat videos with the company's logo to market the brand.
There are quite a few singers offering to create songs, write rap lyrics, or cover songs or jingles created by others for cash. It can be a lucrative side business and some even make a full-time living from Fiverr so it's worth s try.
Offer Voice Lessons or Freelance Services
If you like to teach and are really good at singing, you can offer online voice lessons for each cash. Sites like Upwork allow you to offer freelance services or pitch for available gigs.
Aside from voice lessons with students, you can also lend your voice to help with certain projects or song covers.
Voice over artists and singers start their rates at around $90 – $100 per hour and many have earned thousands from Upwork alone.
Sell a Singing Course
Thanks to sites like Teachable and Udemy, you can now create your own digital course to sell online. I've seen courses cover a variety of different topics. So it's no surprise that there is a demand for singing courses as well.
You can share your vocal techniques, warm-up routine, voice essentials, and more.
Stream Your Music & Get Paid
This is a great option for singers who record and produce their own music. You can allow your music or a snippet of the song to be streamed on Soundcloud. Then you can share a link to your album or mixtape on your profile so people can buy it.
Soundcloud also has features to share your songs through social media as well. The more views you get, the better your chances are to get sales.
If you're a pretty good singer and you're passionate about it, you don't have to be a starving artist. You can work from home singing and creating music and make a good amount of money too.
