Selling your work as non-fungible tokens or NTFs is one of the ways to make money from your photos (even memes). Many artists have jumped on the bandwagon, and you can now do it if you have a Behance account. Adobe has just made it possible to sell your work as NFT right there on the platform, and there are some other new ways of making money on Behance, too.
NFTs on Behance
Let’s start with NFTs. There’s now an “NFTs” tab right next to “Work” and “Subscriber Ares” (which we will tackle later). From there, you can connect your crypto wallet and then add the NFTs you’ve created to your Behance profile. Additionally, you’ll be able to display NFTs inside a Behance project to provide more context or a peek into your process.
At the moment, Behance supports OpenSea, SuperRare, KnownOrigin.io, and Rarible. Adobe is currently working on including other blockchains, too, including Polygon, Solana, Flow, and Tezos.
Subscriptions on Behance
Adobe announced the paid Behance subscription service a few months ago. At the time, it was only available to 25 creators as a test – but now it has been rolled out to everyone. It works similar to Patreon or the Channel Membership on YouTube: you set your prices and the content you want to be available to your subscribers only.
Obviously, you need to be a Behance user and have a paid CC membership to be able to monetize your work through the platform. Note that you don’t pay any fee to Adobe, only payment processing fees.
When you visit your Behance profile, you’ll see a dedicated Subscriber Area right next to “Work”. From here, you can connect your Stripe account with Behance and set up your Subscriber account from there. However, Stripe isn’t supported in all countries (like my country, of course). So, another condition to make this work is that your country of residence supports Stripe as a payment method.
From what I can see on Behance, setting everything up seems pretty straightforward. But if you do need any help, you’ll find more information here.
