    Well, what do you consider easily? The easiest way is to go and advertise in places that people in need of graphic design services are.

    Are you on odesk? eLance? Have a portfolio online? Have your own website?

      I definitely think it is possible.


      Set up a WSO or place an ad in the classified section.


      Make sure you have at least 3 samples of your work.


      Offer the first 5-10 people a big discount to get some positive reviews.


      You could even do 3-5 really dirt cheap. You just want the positive reviews to get things rolling.


      Several people are doing really well right here with your talent.

      Good Luck,

        Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

          I don't think you can toss them. What I do is offer 100% satisfaction or they don't have to pay you a penny. Also, offer free revisions.

          If you still get a negative, respond politely and try to take care of it ASAP.

      I am going to start my designing offer very soon, I need $1000 at least. I friend of mine is also offering graphic designing services here on WF but he is very depressed with the result. The replies on that thread were very helpful for me and I discussed it with my friend. I wondered hearing from him that he has done all the practices I was advised by Warriors. i don't know what he has missed that he is earning so low and I don't want to miss anything that is necessary.I think I still missing something, When I look at the result of my friend success and that is why I started this thread.
      Regards

        Join contests on freelancer. When you start winning contest's you start earning reputation and that helps you to take some projects. Of course it's not easy to win a contest you have to work a lot without sucess but in the end you'll get it. Start with the cheapest, there are less competitors.

        Getting proyects is very hard aswell... You have to make a huge amount of bids to get a proyect. In my case about 100+ to 1 when i started, now it's about 35 to 1, it turns easier as you grow your reputation. Of course a good portfolio helps too.

        Try also on elance and many sites as you can. The more you try the more chances to get proyects.

    It's not easy to make easy money
    Seriously though, you need to work for it. What projects have you worked on so far? Do you have a portfolio so you can 'brag' with them? You can be the best designer in the whole world, but nobody will hire you if they can't see what you can actually do for them.

    They used to have a lot of income before, but right now, the chances are slim. You could give it a shot though, there are a lot of people looking for graphic artists. But since everyone has gotten computers nowadays, it's been harder.

      Fortunately, smart employers know having a computer doesn't make you a graphic designer, same as having a cool suit doesn't make you a wall street broker

      You have to prove to people (by displaying your outstanding portfolio of designs) that you have talent and skills beyond what others do.

      In other words, why should people hire you for their design instead of any of the other thousand designers online that want the job? What can you offer that's different and better than anyone else?

      Until you can prove to people that you deserve to be hired, they are going to go to others that have been around for a long time rather than the new kid on the block.

      The best to you,

      Steve

    More than reviews, get a good portfolio up to show potential clients.

    These don't have to be work you did for clients, just shows them what you're capable of. For most people, if your portfolio shows work with the design style they're looking for, then they're likely to hire you.

    Graphic design is a lot different to Web Design, You can get sales, but time wil take and all you have to be active at this forums or in Freelancing site.

    $1000 is easy per month to do by Graphic and Webdesigning.
