How to make Extra Income through Architecture & Design


If you're someone who loves architecture and design, there's no doubt that it can be both a passion and a career. But how do you make extra income through this field? Well, there are plenty of ways to do so!

Get experience.

As a young architect or designer, it's important to get experience. Experience is the best teacher, and it will allow you to learn from mistakes as well as successes in your career.

You can get this experience by working at an established firm or starting up on your own. The more hands-on work you do with clients, the better equipped you'll be when it comes time for them to ask for references about your work ethic and style of design--information that could prove valuable down the road if they hire someone else!

Start a blog.

It's easy to start a blog. All you need is a wordpress account, some basic understanding of how the CMS works and a domain name. If you already have one, great! Otherwise I'd recommend buying one.

Start by building out your homepage with information about what you do, who your clients are and why they want to work with you over other designers/architects in town.

Don't be shy about sharing links to other places where people can find out more about what it is that drives you every day at work--the internet is full of amazing resources. You should also have an email signature up on every project page so potential clients know who they're dealing with when they contact us via email or phone call (which happens often!).

Blog about your passion.

If you have a passion for architecture and design, then it's time to share that with the world. There are several ways to do this:

  • Blog about your passions on a website like Medium or The Huffington Post. This is also a great way to get exposure for your work as an architect or designer without having to spend too much money on marketing materials or ads.

  • Offer advice on the topic of architecture and design in forums like Reddit (or any other social media platform). You may even want to make money by charging people who want your help with their projects!

Write for other blogs.

You can also make money by writing for other blogs. This is a great way to get your name out there, and it's something you can do while you're still in school.

You don't need any special skills or talent to write well--you just need to have an interest in the topic and be able to express yourself clearly. You want your writing style to be engaging so that people will read it! If possible, try offering samples of previous work on other sites where readers might find them (like LinkedIn profiles).

Try freelance work for extra income.

If you're a freelancer, there are several ways to make extra income through architecture and design. You can work with companies that have contracts with your current employer, or you can create your own projects and sell them to companies. Or you could join forces with other freelancers in the industry who want to start their own business together.

The best way to get started is by finding out what kind of work will appeal to potential clients and then creating a portfolio website so they can see what kinds of things you offer as well as contact information for more information on pricing plans (if any).

Make money through affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is a way to make money online by selling products and services on your website, then earning commission when customers buy them.

To get started with affiliate marketing, you'll need an affiliate program that allows you to promote different brands and products. Once you've got this setup, the next step is finding out which companies have relevant offerings for your audience.

You can do this through keyword research or by looking at their websites themselves; if there are any calls-to-action on their site (for example "Buy Now"), click through them! After clicking through those links and making contact with the company via email or social media channels (Facebook Messenger), ask them about what types of things they offer in relation to architecture & design so you can promote something that resonates with them but doesn't take up a lot of space in terms of keywords or SEO rankings--that way it'll be easier for people who follow those links too see what's available because they won't feel overwhelmed by too much information presented at once."

Design can be an excellent way to make extra income!

Design is one of the most creative fields you can get into. It's also a great way to make extra income! Designers work on projects for companies, but they don't always have to be limited to building a website or taking care of their own business.

Designers can be hired by other people in order to help them out with their creative needs, whether it's helping with branding or creating graphics for social media campaigns.


In this article, we covered a lot of different ways to make extra income through design. From blogging to freelance work and even affiliate marketing, there are many opportunities out there if you have a passion for the field! We hope that our advice helped you find the best way possible for your situation.
