Like my mum opening her photo albums stashed away in the attic; I was opening my Photos app and took a trip down memory lane with the thousands of photos and videos sitting idly and in the cloud. I had all these photos and videos, and wondered what I could do with them. I thought, “It would be a waste to keep them to myself.” Though I had to admit, there were some beautifully taken photos and videos.

Furthermore, working from home and with more time to spare, I was searching for alternative sources of income. Here are the five ways to make money with your photos and videos, online.

1. Takko

Takko is like a combination of TikTok and Youtube Shorts but with the addition of profiting directly from your posted photos and videos. You can also meet new people, collaborate, start trends — all while making money. Users are paid based on the watch time and there’s an algorithm that does the calculation. Sign up for the Creator Program and get paid via Paypal.

2. YouTube

Often, we think and use Youtube as another social media platform for leisure. But, it is also a platform where you can monetise your photos and videos. Unlike Takko, you make money from the advertisements placed in your YouTube videos. Your YouTube channel must have minimum of 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of public watch hours, in order to qualify for the YouTube Partner Programme. The more videos you upload, the more subscribers you have, and the more people watch your videos (and ads) — the more you can earn under the YouTube Partner Programme.

3. Affiliate Marketing

Create YouTube #shorts and product videos from the furnitures, kitchen utensils, and gardening tools in your house. Then go to marketplaces like Shopee, Lazada, and Amazon. Search for a product from your videos.
