Earn Final Fantasy money fast with these easy methods
You’ll want to make as much FFXIV Gil as fast as you can as more money is always useful. The Final Fantasy XIV in-game currency ‘Gil’ can buy you better weapons, fancy hairstyles, awesome mounts, and even your own house. So obviously, we want to fill our pockets with lots and lots of Gil. In short, you can earn Gil from completing quests, selling items, slaying foes and doing dungeons and challenges.
Don’t get overly excited though; there are many great ways to make lots of Gil, but they all require a bit of time and effort. There’s no shortcut that will make you the richest FFXIV player in just a few hours. That said, here are some of the best ways to make Gil that are highly rewarding, relatively low-effort, and fast.
FFXIV Classes | FFXIV XP leveling guideIn case you’re already doing the Duty Roulette and the Challenge Log for other reasons (such as class experience), just keep doing what you’re doing. Although most of the Gil-making methods below are even more rewarding, these challenges offer plenty of in-game currency and don’t take too much time.
If you want to maximize the amount of Gil you get from your Duty Roulette, make sure you’re the ‘adventurer in need’. There’s often a shortage of Tanks and Healers (indicated by the little icon left of the level requirement in the Duty Finder), so using one of these classes will get you a Gil bonus. Don’t forget to exchange your Tomestones (an additional, high level reward) for unique gear and items as well. Reselling these will provide you with an extra source of Gil.
Furthermore, you’ll be able to sell the loot you don’t need to others players on the Market Board (the FFXIV auction house). You can also desynthesize it, which will get you some crafting parts. If you choose to do this, you might keep some of the parts for yourself while selling the rest on the Market. If you want a steady Gil income to (ultimately) get rich in FFXIV, you might want to find yourself a job. There’s plenty of choice: you can become a Weaver, a Carpenter, a Culinarian, or even a Botanist. While most of these professions involve item crafting (the Disciples of the Hand), a few are focused on gathering materials instead (Disciples of the Land).
Gathering materials provides an easy source of income, as they’re always in demand (especially Miners). Crafters often prefer to buy materials rather than search for them, so even the most basic materials will sell on the Market. Eventually, you can sell or complete Treasure Maps too (more on that later).
Although all crafting professions have their uses, the Armorer, Goldsmith, and Alchemist tend to make the most valued items. Keep in mind that leveling these professions means being able to craft better gear, which will ultimately fetch the most Gil.You’ve leveled your gatherers and crafters, but what’s the most profitable item to sell? There’s no perfect answer to that question, as the demand may vary from time to time. It’s therefore always wise to check the Market Board before deciding on an item. As a general rule though, remember that most players are either looking for ways to save time, or stuff they can’t make themselves. They will offer good money for high level gear or large quantities of basic materials.
Click on the item you want to sell to see how many other players are selling and what their asking prices are. If you’re selling basic materials or food, you might want to place a larger stack on the market. The price differences are often small, so keep it about average or just below the usual asking price.One of the best things about making money in Final Fantasy XIV, is that you can get a little help from your trusty sidekicks; the Retainers. After completing the ‘Scions of the Seventh Dawn’ Main Scenario Quest (minimum level 17), you can send your Retainers on so-called ‘Retainer Ventures’. Completing these ventures awards you with experience and, of course, Gil.
The more Ventures your Retainers complete, the higher their level will become and the better your rewards. Although the Retainer Ventures aren’t the most profitable activity to make Gil in FFXIV, they are an easy source of income that will grow over time.
Note that you need to acquire a Venture currency before you can start a Retainer Venture. You can get them from doing Beast Tribe Quests and Guildleves, or buy them from your Grand Company Vendor.FFXIV Treasure Maps are obtained by high level Disciples of the Land (Miners, Fishers, and Botanists) while gathering. They can also be bought on the Market. After completing the ‘Treasures and Tribulations’ quest (level 36), you unlock the ability to decipher these maps and go on a profitable Treasure Hunt. Keep in mind that you can only keep one Treasure Map at a time, so you might want to send the rest to a friendly player over mail just to store them.
Before you go on a Treasure Hunt, do remember that Treasure Maps are a bit of a gamble since you don’t know what you’re going to get. Although doing them yourself tends to be more profitable in the long run, you can also just sell the maps on the Market Board for a smaller but reliable source of Gil.
If you’re not into Treasure Hunts, you might want to try the Grand Company Hunts instead. You can see the available Hunts and their rewards on your Grand Company’s Hunt Board. Completing them will get you pretty high Gil rewards as well as Seals that can be exchanged for other valuable items. Note that you need to reach the rank of Second Lieutenant to unlock this feature.The Beast Tribe Quests in Final Fantasy XIV reward you with a bit of Gil, Tomestones, and Ventures, but that’s not the only reason why they’re so profitable. Completing quests for the Beast Tribes will increase your reputation and ultimately grant you access to unique materials and items. You can buy these furnishings, mounts, and minions from the Beast Tribe Vendor and sell them on the Market Board to players who don’t have access to this stuff. Pay special attention to unique dyes; these will often go for very high prices.
All you need to do now is pick a few of these money-making activities and you’re all set to fill your pockets with Gil in Final Fantasy XIV!

Do you know how to earn money on YouTube? Make online videos pay – HT Tech
Copyright © HT Media Limited
All rights reserved.
Being a content creator on YouTube is no easy task, as many have discovered over the years. In fact, to earn money online, the going can be tough. money Merely owning a camera and a high-speed internet connection is not enough to earn money on YouTube and there is no way to know if your content will perform well on YouTube. However, for those with perseverance and enough patience, having a channel with regular content can help you earn money on YouTube. Here is how to earn money on YouTube.
YouTube Partner Program
If you want your YouTube videos to make money on the platform, you must apply to the YouTube Partner Program. However, not all users who apply are accepted – they must fulfil certain requirements before they are accepted. For example, you must live in a valid region where the program is available, have a linked AdSense account, and no active Community Guidelines strikes against your channel. You must also have over 1,000 subscribers and over 4,000 valid public watch hours over the last 12 months at the time of applying to be in the YouTube Partner Program.

YouTube Premium revenue
While the YouTube Partner Program can net you a decent amount of revenue assuming you have enough views on your videos, content creators can also make their videos available on YouTube Premium. This will allow users who have subscribed to the Premium version of YouTube to access your content without ads and you can earn a small portion of the membership fees depending on how many views you get.
Thanks to the Merch shelf feature, content creators can lock some content behind a paywall of sorts that allows for members-only access to badges, emoji and other goods on the platform. These memberships can only be enabled if you have a Community tab, you have more than 1,000 subscribers, you’re part of the YouTube Partner Program, and your channel is not marked as Made for Kids or has similar ineligible videos.
Eligible creators on YouTube can showcase their own branded merchandise that can be sold by a retailer. According to Google, the shelf shows up on the main videos tab, and shows up to 12 products to viewers. You will need to have over 10,000 subscribers to set up a merch self on the platform, which is not something every YouTube creator will find easy to reach.

How to share a Google Doc privately – The Verge
Make sure you know whom you’re sharing it with
Recently, I got Slacked by a colleague who was really annoyed and had to let off a bit of steam. It seems that a writer had shared a new Google Docs article with them (a usual way of submitting a freelance piece), and when my colleague opened the article, they found another, unknown person was already reading it — somebody who was definitely not on our staff.
What had happened? The writer, probably in too much of a hurry to share the document with specific people, had simply made it public so that anybody could have access to it. This not only made the article available to anyone before it had been properly edited and published — something no publication wants — but opened it up to all sorts of mischief.
Mischief like what happened in June 2021, when another editor accidentally tweeted the link to an editable document to their followers. (The Verge’s site was temporarily down, and it seemed like a good idea to publish news to Google Docs in the meantime.) Merriment ensued.
So obviously, allowing anyone to view, comment on, or edit a Google Doc can lead to problems, especially if the link to that document is passed around. Interestingly, when you first create a Google Doc, the software’s default is that this is a private document, only to be shared if you explicitly request it. (There can be exceptions; if this is a business account, the administrator may have changed the default so that it is automatically shared by others in your company.) So usually, you have to consciously make the document completely public.
So here’s how you can share your Google Docs document — carefully.
First, go into the document you want to share and click on the large Share button in the upper right corner.
You’ll get a pop-up window headed “Share with people and groups.”
Begin typing the person or groups’ name into the field just below that. If that person is in your contact list, their name will appear; if not, you can type in their full email address. You can type in more than one name; however, this means that all those you’ve added will be given the same type of access to the document. (We’ll talk about access in a sec.)
When you’ve added at least one name, you’ll see a box to the right that says “Editor.” Click on that for a drop-down menu that lets you select the type of access that the people / group can have to your document. These include:
It’s usually a good idea to select the most restrictive type that’s practical enough for your use case. For example, if you’re writing a document together with several others, you’ll want to give them editor status; but if you don’t want them to make any changes without your approval, then commenter status is better.
(Expert tip: if the people you’ve shared with have changed the document but didn’t tell you what they changed, go to “File” > “Version history” > “See version history.” You’ll see a color-coded rundown on the right showing when the document was edited and by whom; click on the date, and the changes will be visible in the document, together with the color associated with the different users.)
You can also tweak the amount of access that editors, commenters, and viewers have to your document by selecting the settings icon (a cog wheel) in the upper right corner of that pop-up box. By unchecking the boxes in the settings pop-up, you can prevent editors from being able to change your permissions or share the document, and you can prevent editors and commenters from being able to download, print, and copy the document.
Once you’ve finished adding the people you want to share with, make sure the “Notify people” box is checked if you want to send them an email letting them know about the document; a field below that lets you type in a personal message that will be added to Google’s canned email.
But wait, there’s more.
There is a “Get Link” section below the “Share with People and Groups” section that lets you copy the link to your document (for example, if you’d rather text the link to one of your permitted sharers). The default is called “Restricted,” which means the only people who can see the document are those you’ve shared it with. But you can also use the “Get Link” section to make the link more accessible to more people.
To do that, click on “Restricted” and change it to “Anyone with the link.” That means anyone who has the link — whether you’ve sent it, or a friend has sent it, or it’s been posted to Twitter — can access the document. (Even here, however, you can adjust access so that people have either Viewer, Commenter, or Editor rights.)
Sharing a document is also possible — if slightly more awkward — on a mobile device.

Stripe Helps Creators Boost 'Internet GDP' With Help of Platforms, Payments and Subscriptions – pymnts.com
The platform economy, combined with the creator economy, is primed to help artists, musicians and podcasters, among others, turn their talents into money.
As Lily Q. Jolly, product lead for Stripe Express, told PYMNTS in an interview, making it easy to pay creators — in the way they want to be paid, and through subscriptions — will add significantly to the “GDP of the Internet.”
To that end, Spotify said this week that it is broadening its podcast subscription offerings, underpinned by Stripe’s payment infrastructure, to include paid monthly content. Podcast Subscriptions, now tied to Stripe Connect, supports currencies and payments across 34 countries, from Austria to the U.S.

Jolly stated that the creator economy, though relatively nascent, has seen creators across dozens of platforms (in partnership with Stripe) earn about $10 billion in revenue, and enabling more individuals to earn “livable wages” (in the U.S., that’s at least $69,000 annually).
As Jolly noted, the creator space is a slice of the economy that barely existed a few years ago. Until recently, the creators themselves spread their offerings across a slew of platforms, navigating different payment systems and currencies.
“They are trying every which way to make a living out of this,” she said.
The pact with Spotify follows linkups where Stripe has powered tipping on TikTok and Twitter on its Super Follows paid subscriptions.

In terms of the mechanics, cross-border payments can be sent and received in different currencies, while other Stripe offerings such as invoicing and Stripe Billing help bill for the subscriptions.
Monetizing the Content
With the pact, she said, “Spotify has leaned in really hard when it comes to enabling their creators to monetize what they do.”
Streamlining payments and pivoting toward subscriptions can make it easier for creators to experiment while making money online. Recurring revenues from subscriptions can be a lifeline. The Subscription Podcast with Spotify enables creators to make money in a predictable way. As she noted, “we all enjoy being able to have a sense of how much money we are going to make.”
“The goal is to be as broad as we can,” she said, with presence in countries with less-developed banking and payments infrastructure.
With the subscription model, she said, creators can offer and monetize content that their followers love, routinely, versus having to nudge their audience every single time a new podcast comes out.
