Graphic Design Services
Rather than paying for a full-time onsite graphic designer, many businesses utilize hourly and project-based design services from graphic design firms. These firms offer logo and website design, corporate branding, brochure layout and other design services. To get started, launch a website showcasing the services you offer. Post a portfolio of your designs and get permission to publish testimonials from your customers. Make customer satisfaction a top priority to gain repeat business and referrals. Write contracts for the services you perform and be sure to document your work so that your estimates are appropriate.
If you have some skills with photo editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop, or if you are an experienced digital photographer, then consider selling your photos as stock photography.

If you can work a digital camera and computer, then start a business selling photos from your own website or to a stock photo agency.
