There are many ways to create passive income online today – more ways than this one article can give you. Perhaps you will get your creative juices flowing by looking at these ideas for making passive income online.
1. YouTube Channel
Creating a YouTube channel to make passive income can take a lot of work. But, the video you make today can earn money for you forever, or at least as long as YouTube continue to do things the way they now do it.
The best way to proceed is to come up with a good idea that your audience will enjoy and try to put up as many videos as you can each week, no less than once a week. With YouTube, consistency is the key. A good example of a high earning YouTube Channel is Mother Goose Club which earns millions a year.
2. Busy Niche Website / Blog
A busy website or blog is a great way to earn passive income. At first, you’ll have to work extra hard getting up the right content, and finding the right products to promote. You won’t be able to join an ad network other than AdSense until you are more popular, but it won’t take long if you work at it daily.
A good example of a blog that earns good money is RealitySteve.com. You don’t have to create something about celebrities to earn a lot of money, though.
3. Kindle EBooks
You can write and publish Kindle eBooks for passive income. It’s easy and free to publish on Kindle. You can write the books yourself, or you can truly make it passive by it to someone else to do. A man by the name of Ty Cohen makes millions via Kindle publishing. There are more, so that means it’s possible.
4. Develop an App
Take a clue from Ty Cohen and create apps too. You don’t need to know even one bit of code, because you can find a freelancer on a site like Upwork.com to do it for you. Then you will promote the app to your audience. The app will earn money for a long time if you create the right kind.
5. Create an ECourse
With all the simple software that is available now, you can take your idea and create a course in no time. Try using a system like LearnDash.com, or Udemy.com to promote and sell your course. Look up LMS or “sell your eCourse online for money” and you’ll find plenty of ways to do it.
6. Develop Information Products
You can write or use digital video to create information products to promote to your audience. In fact, you can put them on ClickBank.com, JVZoo.com, and other affiliate networks to allow others to sell the product too for a percentage. This is the fastest way to start making passive income because technically you only need sales pages and not full-fledged websites to promote.
7. Membership Website
If you have knowledge that others want, you can put it behind a membership wall and collect a monthly fee for those who want to join. Some good examples of memberships that make money are Writer Help Wanted, and the membership community Living Plant Based. Any idea that you have can work as a membership community.
8. Become a Niche Affiliate Marketer
There are many products already created that you can start to promote now. You can go to ClickBank.com, JVZoo.com and other affiliate networks to find products that have affiliate programs that are ready for you to promote. Simply use proven systems to promote their products, and you can be making passive income in no time.
While the beginning of creating passive income is anything but “passive,” the point is that once you start creating and marketing these products you will stop the treadmill of trading hours for dollars. Instead of being limited by how much time you have each day, you’ll be able to sell your products to as many people as you desire.
