In this article we’re gonna talk about seven ways to make money as a software developer, there are going to be some obvious tips, some not so obvious ninja tips and then a little bonus tip at the end for you guys, that I think you’re actually really gonna enjoy.
There are lots of different ways you can actually make an income as a software developer and I feel like some of them are not as obvious to every single person and not every single person knows about them, so in this article I’m going to share with you all of these ways.
So if you get a job as a software developer, you can be making an income that’s the most obvious.
So what does that mean, you can actually get say a local client to pay you, okay so freelancing is broken down into many different ways because it depends how you actually get the client, so for two, will say local clients, you can go to clients and you could go to meetup.com and meet people there, this way it’s easy for the people to get to know you, like you and trust you. because the see you face-to-face you actually have much more of a chance to be able to land a client that you meet locally.
the eye you have to have the eye for what kind of project you can do if you’re even more beginner than that well then don’t do the thing that requires you three months of experience, do the thing that pays you $300 that’s most likely gonna be an entry-level thing, maybe they wants you to write a little piece of code that can do something with CSV files or it tracks something on Amazon, but those are all fairly simple things that you could actually be able to do with a few weeks of you know once you’re past like the very basics of coding you should be able to actually do this even if you’re a beginner.
On upward you gotta have an eye, but upwork.com is a great way to actually make money as a software developer .
Now this is a thing that most people don’t actually talk about, it’s so fundamentally important and I don’t know why people don’t talk about this a lot, it’s a huge and a very important way to make an income as a software developer, especially a lot of you that are actually learning, especially a lot of college students and computer science students, this is so important for you guys and not just for you guys but like personally for me and even my close friends and all people, we have been able to make over $70,000, $80,000 a year just from teaching coding to other people. If you have decent social skills and decent communication skills and you have empathy and you care and you want to help somebody, you can help the other person and you can be charging thirty five to fifty dollars an hour if not more,
So I’m gonna now break it down in two different places you can actually apply.
. WAYZANT.com, so you can go on WAYZANT.com and apply on WAYZANT.com to tutor people.
. TAKELESSONS.com you can actually go to TAKELESSONS.com and apply. Are the two platforms to be able to make an income.
There are a lot of people who are non in United States when a comes tutoring you might actually not be able to do it you know on WAYZANT.com or TAKELESSONS.com because those are primarily for United States, so you might want to look into something called PEOPLEPERHOUR.com, and you know Google also you can google the equivalent of a tutoring resource in your own country and PEOPLEPERHOUR.com is a good tutoring resource.
Now if you have any amount of experience in coding especially if you’re more advanced, this is not a beginner friendly platform, so if you’re a beginner do not look at CODEMENTOR.io, but if you’re good or you’re advanced, I mean this is your platform, this is a highly it’s so curated and it’s so amazing for freelance developers who want to be able to help people, you’ll find on CODEMENTOR.io the clients or also really incredibly skilled people and really amazing people in general, so you’re not working with like little kids or people who have no idea about coding like you might be working with WAYZANT or TAKELESSONS or PEOPLEPERHOUR but on CODEMENTOR you’re working with also really amazing people and so this is a great platform
if you’re skilled as a developer and you can actually be making probably one of the probably the most amount of money and when it comes to teaching on CODEMENTOR, there are a lot of developers that are actually
making six figures on CODEMENTOR and absolutely killing it and have a great lifestyle.
Now this is a bonus one, there’s a huge niche for developers online and everybody and their frickin mother when they make a video on a day in the life as a software engineer , it gets views, and everybody else in the world makes one. it just gets a ton of views and you could be making a decent amount of income from just YouTube ad revenue especially if you’re getting lots of views, probably getting like 25 thousand dollars a month just from ads on YouTube.
