Ηey, what is up nation?In this sessionwe’re going to be going over 1 2 3 4 5 67 ways that you can be using Sketchup tomake moneyThe first way is to get a job in architecture. That’s a traditional jobso you would go to school or learn howto draft, and then find your way into anarchitecture firm or an interior designfirm, where you can use your skills andSketchup. So basically in thisparticular scenario Sketchup issecondary then it might help you find ajob or get a job in that field if that’swhat you want to do, but nonetheless it’sa perfectly viable way to get a jobusing architectureNumber 2 is to essentially become a consultant for architecture and interior design firmsmaking Sketchup models. So a lot ofsmaller architecture and interior designfirms don’t want to spend the time to dotheir own 3D models. I can take time andthey want somebody who’s really quick atdoing that if they ever need to developa 3D rendering or something like that. They might do everything by hand. So finding those firms it’s a really greatway to get essentially a niche marketand you get to use Sketchup and reallyhone your skills and you can make money that way3 Now we’re going to start to get into ways to make money in Sketchupthey’re a little less traditional. So 3 is marketing your services on freelancewebsites like Upwork and Fiverr. So youwould go on there, you’d create afreelancer account and then you’d startto sell your services. There are a lot ofpeople who have drawings or they dotheir own drawings and they want itrefined, or they want to see it in 3D sothat’s a really great way to findclients all over the world who arelooking for architectural or design services. Number 4 is to design objectsthat you can then sell on 3d modelwebsites, so there are a bunch of gamingwebsites,I’ll list them in the comments below. I’ve neverdone this before but I know it’s prettylucrative and a lot of people do it, likefor games you can put 3D assets on thereand people like them then they pay youfor them. Obviously it’s tough togain a lot of attraction to that but ifyou’re looking for a little bit ofpassive income and you just likemodeling Sketch up it might be a great option for you. Number 5 is to do 3Drenderings of your models. If you have arealistic photo rendering plug-in oreven if you don’t, there’s a wide rangeof people who are looking for differentimages for different reasons. Obviously,it’s a slow revenue grower, you’re notgonna make a million dollars overnightprobably, but you know if you’ve alreadymodeled something and you just want tohit render and then sell that image – you’ve really not a big problem. Number 6 is really similar to five, where wewere talking about selling yourimages on stock photo websites. 6 canbe great if you use animations. You can charge a whole lot more for animations,it’s kind of like a bunch of pictures. And there’s, it’s pretty niche at thispoint, so there’s a lot of people lookingfor different kinds of animations, andSketchup has that built into it, so youcan do really simple animations or ifyou have a rendering software that canrender a higher quality image you can dothat as well. And like I said before, this is anotherpassive income stream. You’re probablynot going to be a millionaire overnight,but, you know, to make a few hundred bucksprobably isn’t a month, isn’t thatunreasonable. Number 7 is essentially what I do. I teach people about Sketchupand I love that aspect of what I do,I love teaching and I don’t make a ton ofmoney from what I do on here the amountthat I make through through YouTube ispretty minimal, but I love it. I loveteaching you guys things and sharingwhat I know. Because a lot of what I knowI kind of take for granted, I think that“oh, yeah, everybody knows this”, but itturns out no. That’s not true. And I think that’s part of a thing ifyou if you decide to start teachingSketchup that you need to get over isjust realize that there arepeople that don’t know as much as youand your if you’re just a step ahead ofsomebody you can really help them, so youcan teach people through YouTube videoslike I do, you can teach them throughcourses, online courses or physicalcourses at a school, or something likethat, you can teach them through,I said, courses online like places likeUdemy will let you host a course, so youcan make videos like I do and host acourse on Udemy. You can also do like atutoring, in person for someone. So thoseare great ways if you like teaching thatyou might want to get into that andthat’s the last way that I think thatyou can make money using Sketchup.
