    Hi guys,

    I'm currently reading all those methods of making money online and I wonder if you could recommend me one which
    fits to my skills: I'm a UI/UX student which means, that I can create very good looking websites, images, etc. with a great user experience.
    The only "problem" is that I'm living in Germany and that makes it impossible for example to use Instagram for posting other's pictures. Would be very happy about any advices. Thanks!

    Those skills would be useful in the freelancing websites. Coming to the table with an established portfolio is always good (make your own websites/software/apps and claim them as clients if needed).

    Put a portfolio site together that visually shows examples of all the things you can do, and suggest prices that compare well with your competitors. If you don't know what those prices are, search for other web designer sites to get an idea. Whether you promote traffic to it or not, now you will have something to show people if you answer gig postings on forums or freelance sites, when they ask for samples of your work.

    Yeah have you tried upwork or freelancer? Lots of people making money there for UI/UX design. Just start off taking low paying jobs to get some good ratings.

    Thanks for your replies. I might give freelancing a try. The payment for making websites is pretty low these days but maybe a good first step to earn money online.
