Creating Instructables is fun and has the potential to put some pocket money in your pocket for future projects. These ideas are perfectly acceptable and can be applied to most of your projects in one form or another.
This is one way to create an automated income. Once the tools are created and in place, you will be able to sit back and watch the money roll in.
I will guide you to the resources I use as well as other opportunities for additional income. The main way I make money is through google applications. If you don't already have a Google profile, now would be a great time to create one. I will also share instructions on creating online stores through other websites.

The first key to creating additional income from your Instructable project is to have a compelling idea, something that others are building or enjoy looking at. This part really is the hardest because you don't always predict what your target audience will want. I've found that projects that I thought would have been presented and received a ton of views will actually be dropped flat, while other projects received a number of views and praise.
I've also found that the cover picture for your 'ible is the most important picture for drawing a crowd. I started with GIF images and found that viewers were intrigued enough by the animation to see your entire project. I have an Instructable describing how I did this. You can do it here to display.
I do most of my Instructables on my iPhone. I create the photos, videos and GIF animations right from apps I downloaded. I've found that when I have some time it's easy to add a few sentences or to work on details of a video. I usually finish a project on my computer because there are some aspects of the mobile application that don't allow me to do certain things like: add links and GIFs.

Step 1: Instructables Marketplace



  1. Instructables.com has a forum to help sell your products. This community forum is a great place to reach your target audience and gives you the opportunity to link back your own Instructables.
    Find the Marketplace page You here.
    While we're sharing our ideas and projects for free, DIYers may want to buy your finished project directly from you. Linking Your Product in Your Instructable is the first big step followed by putting them in the market. Be sure to add links to your eBay page and Etsy storefront. Individual article links may expire or your article may sell out and this could discourage prospects from delving deeper.

Step 2: website or blog revenue





  1. Targeting your audience to your personal website is another great way to create a following and potential advertising money. Blogs, like bloggers, give you the opportunity to add relevant advertisements. I use Blogger because it's free and very easy to edit and monetize. I also use Blogger because it is a Google product and easy for me to link with my other options like YouTube and AdSense. I've created wordpress sites in the past to do this same job. Both are free and very easy to use. Submit your Instructables to them to create a fan base. Also post your affiliate links and YouTube videos on your new website as well. The key to a successful website is keywording so be sure to add all of the right descriptive text.
    Blogger:
    quick start Guide
    Wordpress:
    Start instructions
    There are a number of free blog sites out there. I choose these two as they are simple, have a great creator base, and are free.

Step 3: Online Store Revenue - Etsy and eBay





  1. Let's say your Instructable generated a lot of interest and people were asking if they could buy your thingamajiggy. You could list it in the Instructables Market or you can create your own shop on an online retail site. Driving sales through your Instructable requires the right connections and Instructables makes that a really easy task. There are quite a few stores you could create for this task. Below are a couple of tried and tested websites.
    Ebay:
    Register link
    Etsy:
    Registration help
    There are other websites that can help you sell your products, I've just ranked really established online sites.

Step 4: YouTube Revenue



  1. Creating a video of your Instructable is a great way to explain the steps and details of your work. Did you know that you can use your video to make money to create an income? It's pretty easy once you've signed up and finished the steps outlined by Google. You can decide whether to get inside your video like an ad, the sidebar or an ad that plays in front of your viewers to see your fantastic video. When your viewer clicks on an ad and buys an item through them, you get paid a percentage. This also comes in really handy when your video is going viral (doing something).
    The LINK you'll get started as a YouTube partner.
    I make most of my online income through YouTube. My most viewed videos are actually the ones that I posted on my Instructables. I check my earnings every day and am often surprised at where my earnings come from.

    04/07/2015 - views 2449

    YouTube rules state that you should not encourage others to click your ad links.

Step 5: create and upload a video







  1. Creating a video for your Instructable is the focus of this "ible. This is where the potential for great income comes from. You never know, your video could go viral and all you have to do is sit back and watch the money roll in." I make a modest amount of money out of my videos and check my AdSense account frequently to see which videos are generating the most hits and clicks. Clicks represent the amount of time that someone "clicked" on an ad Your Videos. This is how you make money. Keeping track of which videos generate the most views gives you insight into what is forcing your viewers to click, as well as what they like about your graphic.
    As I mentioned earlier, I do most of my work on my mobile device. I take photos, create GIFs and create my videos with him. With the right apps, that's pretty easy. I use video editing programs and publish them directly on YouTube. It will be the ones required to log in to the computer to monetize and add the correct connections later. It's a bit of a balancing act, but gets easier as you go.
      Create your video using any number of video editors. Add the Photos and Motion Graphics you used to make your Instructable Illustration. Adding text in between photos is a plus or it will guide your viewer through each step as you go. If you want to add the music on your videos, use your own sounds. YouTube won't allow you to monetize your video using other people's music. Open your YouTube account and hit the "Upload" button in the top right corner. Drag your new video into the "Choose files to upload" window or paste using the app used on your phone or tablet. While uploading your video, add a title that best describes your video. A great description will bring viewers from locations other than Instructables.com. Tags! Tags are really important to add, they tell people on the interwebs what your video is about. Include as many as you can think of which are directly related to your content. Be sure to add Instructables.com, DIY to each of them do it yourself. Click the monitize button and choose your preferred display. Swim in your pile of money.

Step 6: ITunes partner



  1. Becoming an iTunes Affiliate is quick and easy; I have it in a matter of minutes.
    What that means is you can post songs, videos, apps and etc. to a link. When someone buys through your link, you are making a small percentage of that sale. After you have been accepted as an affiliate marketer, you will be given a link to iTunes Link Maker. From there you can create links to specific titles to match your Instructable.
    Perhaps you are creating an ible about a Breaking Bad costume and wanted to give examples of the show's charactors. You can download the pointer to provide an episode with your costume. Your viewers would then be able to download and watch that episode. Here is an example:
    Breaking Bad Season 1
    Breaking Bad Season 1, Cancer Man
    The connection with the iTunes affiliate program is to begin HERE .

Step 7: Create a Google Profile



  1. The main idea of ‚Äč‚Äčthis' ible is to monetize through YouTube. I created a YouTube account and monetized it with ads. I'll dig deeper into this on this Step.
    The first step is to create a google account. If you already have a YouTube account, you're halfway there.
    * I pulled this info straight from google page. szmtag
    A Google Account gives you access to Google products like Gmail, Google+, YouTube and more with a single username and password.
      To create a Google Account, go to Create your Google Account Page. Ad all the information you want on the right. Check the email you provided to verify your account. You are now ready to put in your sign YouTube account.

    * Google requires that you are 13 years or older to create an account. You must be at least 18 years old to be able to monetize your videos.

Step 8: Create an AdSense Account



  1. This step is critical to generating ads for your videos and blog. Once this step is complete, everything is just a few button clicks away.
      Visit that Monetization page into your channel settings and go to the "How do I get paid?" From the AdSense Association page, please follow the "next" step to be directed to AdSense. Select the option at the bottom of the page to choose the Google Account you want to use. Enter the password for your Google account. Take over the Adsense association. Enter your contact details and submit your AdSense application. You will then be redirected back to YouTube and a message will appear to let you know that your AdSense application has been received. Adsense will be mailed to you once your AdSense account is approved and your AdSense ID will be updated on the AdSense Association page (please note that it takes up to 48 hours for the association to be fully active).
