    Hey,

    I have some decent coding skills in PHP, HTML + CSS and in Java.

    For example I have written a simple php script to scrape all skype usernames from users here at blackhatworld,
    to save them to a .csv file.

    What is the best way to monetize my coding skills?

    Could you think of any data like that you would need and pay for?

    Haha no I don't use this .csv list, it was just a test to see if it is possible to do it ;)

    No, but seriously, regarding monetising your coding skills, build a program better than FL or MP and I will buy it. Or do custom work for people

    Try to find freelance work on UpWork, write a script that will keep track of the freelancer for hire section of this website that would notify you when any of your keywords (like "php", "coding", "coder" etc.) is mentioned in a new topic, create some unique fiverr and seoclerks gigs based on your skill set (both to allow you to get small freelance gigs and things that you can automate thanks to your coding skills), think of a web app or a tool that is missing from the world and create it to monetize with ads, fremium or to sell. The possibilities are endless, you just have to have some skill and imagination and you could soon be crushing it (but only if you're good).

    Well create something helpful for comunity and charge access to it for a few $$. Or look at freelance section and do some freelancing. But you can make some websites drive traffic to them and sell them on flippa too. You have endless oportunities just take action!

    Just ask people what they want then make it. Sounds simple I know but it will work :)

    The first thing you should do is dedicate yourself to a programming language.. Then ensure you find software services tailored to the code chosen.

    Once you figure that out lead yourself to make software or applications with a function people like using. After that get yourself an ad provider so money can be made.

    For example if you had an android app info plugin for a game get yourself into AirPush / SmartApp, monetize and start uploading it to mobile directories.

    As an internet marketer think of something that would make your life easier. i've thought about creating a tool like DHG but that's really difficult. If you're good at programming then go for it.

    Make mods for popular games, add some unusual, but funny gameplay twists, then stream your game plays on twitch or youtube.
    It's funny and may be even profitable.
