50 Ways to Make Money Online Analyzed

Introduction In this day and age, it has become much easier to generate passive income.
The internet, in particular, has given birth to a plethora of opportunities that enable smart and business-minded people to earn significant profits with very limited work.
The lure of generating passive income has never been stronger.

The idea of earning an income while vacationing in the Virgin Islands is a truly attractive prospect. However, things are easier said than done. Just like any form of profit-oriented activity, you have to put in the time and the work before you can see a stream of passive income going your way.

A lot of people make the mistake of equating earning passive income with get-rich-quick schemes. I hope that you don’t make the same mistake.

This is why I’ve put together this guide about the most common ways on how to earn passive income. My intention is to help you decide if an opportunity is right for you or not. I also want to help you debunk the myths and misconceptions surrounding these income-generating methods.

The information and analysis you will find in this book are based on facts and observable trends.I want to make sure that you are on the right direction when you finally decide to find a way to generate passive income.

I also highly recommend that you nurture the attributes of patience and determination when you pursue any of the methods discussed in this book. These are virtues you are going to need because most of the methods here won’t deliver instant income.

Most of the time, you have to build the business from the ground up.
If you don’t have patience, you will give up before you start reaping the rewards
that you deserve.

If you don’t have determination, then one setback can easily break down your spirit.
My suggestion is that you should look into your passive income journey with
long-term goals.


Take your time. Don’t rush things.
If you don’t achieve a goal, just sit back and try to understand what went wrong.
What did you do ?
What didn’t you do ?
Then do things all over again. Sooner or later, things will come into place.

Once you start seeing the earnings roll in, just sit back once again and try to see how you can scale the earnings. This is what successful online entrepreneurs do.
You should do the same. Furthermore, all businesses are not equal.

Some of the business opportunities covered in this book are by their very nature passive while others aren’t – this is why a passivity grade is assigned to them to help you compare and contrast. However, every business can be made more passive by applying certain strategies.

Where necessary, strategies that will help increase the passivity of the business are suggested. Finally, please bare in mind this guide is by no means a comprehensive analysis of 50 business opportunities.

As much as I would have loved to cover every minute detail of each business,
it’ll be difficult to achieve that without making this book unnecessarily long. However, what you’ll find herein is a brief overview of 50 ways you can earn passive income, or at the very least, make money online.

The intention here is to help you quickly compare and contrast each business model, pick out the opportunities that interest you the most and then do further research on them. It’s my sincere hope that what you’ll discover in this book will bring you one step closer to achieving the financial freedom you deserve.

Make Your Life Simple

Without further ado, lets get right into it! What is Passive Income ?
There are various definitions of passive income but the most common one is this:
“It is income that you earn even if you are not actively trying to earn it.”

You are still earning it even if you are mowing your lawn or if you are on vacation in the Bahamas. In short, it’s income that goes to your bank account whether you actively work for it or not. Rental income is one of the most common examples of passive income. You own a piece of land that a farmer rents for $1000 a month.

Whether you do anything or not to the property, you will still receive the $1000 at the end of every month. Passive income has been around since the dawn of civilization.
Tributes that tribesmen bring to their chiefs can be considered as passive income by the nature of the tributes.

These are products or goods that the chiefs themselves didn’t work on.
They simply receive them after every harvest cycle.
With that said, the concept of passive income has been around for centuries.
However, it has evolved with the times.
Economic movements have given birth to dozens of other ways on how to generate
passive income.
Knowledge is Power

For example, the current technological revolution has created online economies
that allow people to earn significant amounts of passive income.
Anyone can start a website, sign up with Amazon, promote Amazon products, and earn commissions from every sale.

These commissions are considered as passive income.
Why Is Passive Income Important ?
Passive income is very important in the sense that it allows people to achieve some sort of financial freedom while getting the chance to indulge in the things that they are passionate about.

For example, with an alternative source of income, you can spend more time doing something you love like going to the beach to surf, going to the mountains to hike or spending quality time with your loved ones. It enables to you to earn money without having to work day in and day out for it.

Of course, the importance of passive income largely depends on where you
are coming from and what your goals are in pursuing it.

But the bottom line here is that passive income offers you an opportunity to earn good money with less work.It is hard work at first but you slowly unburden yourself from the work as your business and passive income stream grows.

That’s the beauty of it.
It gets easier and easier with the passage of time provided that you are doing things the right way and that you are scaling your business with the right strategies.

The work you have done yesterday will continue to benefit you in the coming days, weeks, months, or even years. This is especially true if you are running a content-based business that’s hosted online.

To cut the story short, passive income is important to those who are looking for a good source of alternative income that requires minimal work. It’s important to those who want to supplement their income from their 9 to 5 jobs.

It’s important to those who want more time to pursue their passions. It’s important to those who want to build businesses that have the potential of completely replacing their income from their ordinary jobs. Finally, having a good passive income base will make you less dependent on your job.

If for any reason you were to lose your job, you’ll still have peace of mind knowing
you have other ways of making money – ways you can easily scale up to replace the income from your job. This means, you’ll not be at the mercy of the economy
(i.e. economic downturn and subsequent job losses) or your boss.

You’ll be in control of your financial life. Success Mindset The two most important virtues that you need to achieve success in generating passive income are patience and determination.

If you have both of these attributes, then you have the ideal mindset required to achieve success. Majority of those who fail in generating passive income do so because they give up too easily or they get discouraged with the slightest setback.

Make no mistakes. The opportunities discussed in this book are by no means get rich quick schemes. If you don’t have patience and determination, then it will be very difficult for you to create a great source of passive income.

In the context of passive income, patience means sticking to your guns for weeks, months, or even years. You have to always remember that it will take time before you get to see meaningful returns on your investments.

For example, let’s say that you built a blog which you monetized with advertisements and affiliate products. You should not expect your blog to generate income right out of the bat. It takes time for the blog to attract and grow readers. Sometimes, for the first months, you are going to earn nothing.

If you don’t have patience and determination, it’s so easy to get discouraged and just give up. Taking Responsibility for Your Success and Failures In your passive income journey, you are going to go through a lot of ups and downs, failures and successes.

You should own up to these failures because it’s the only way to learn from your mistakes. It’s easier to find solutions to problems if you accept the fact that you are responsible in fixing them.

You see, one of the most common reasons why many aspiring online entrepreneurs fail is that they play the blame game when things don’t go their way.
They blame everyone but themselves.

They blame the freelance writers they hired.
They blame the social media marketers running their social media campaigns.
They blame their staff.
They actually spend more time finding someone to blame than finding a solution to the problem that caused the failure.
In a nutshell, success and failure come hand in hand.

It’s not uncommon for beginners to encounter more failures than successes.
What really matters is how you deal with the failures.

Are you going to let them discourage you ?
Or are you going to use them as lessons to be smarter the second time around ?
In my experience, successful and determined entrepreneurs follow the latter route.
You should do the same.

Having this book by your side will give you tremendous leverage and a good head start because you’ll know which business opportunity suits you best and which to avoid.

However, if you wish to further cut down your learning curve and reduce the number of mistakes you’ll make, we advise working with a mentor – someone who has achieved success in what it is you’re trying to do.

Bear in mind, the best mentors tend to be those who are not too far ahead of you as they will be able to better understand the challenges you’re currently going through since it wasn’t too long ago they went through the same challenges themselves.

Adopting an Abundance Mindset When we say you should adopt an abundance mindset, we are urging you to stay optimistic and focus all your attention on the good things and positive things that are happening in your passive income journey.

Everything you do should be geared towards achieving the abundance you envisioned when you started your passive income journey. Having this mindset will keep your efforts glued to your most important goals.

Adopting an abundance mindset also involves dealing with setbacks and learning from them. In most cases, it’s about turning your weaknesses into strengths.
You failed to sell products in your first weeks ?
This happens to almost everyone so don’t let it get to you too much.

A smart entrepreneur would look back at what he did or what he didn’t do and go
from there with renewed passion knowing that he’s not going to make the same
mistakes again.

Mapping Out a Course of Action Goal setting and planning are two of the most important things you should do before you embark on a journey to earn passive income. In goal setting, you identify both your short-term and long-term goals.

There should also be a corresponding time periods for your goals.
For example, where do you envision yourself after six months of pursuing your goals ?
After setting your goals, you then proceed to mapping out a plan on how you are going to achieve them. You can call it the “master plan” or the “blueprint”.

What’s important is that it should contain the course of action you are going to implement in your attempt to get to your goals. To recap things, you are going to need patience and determination if you want to last long as an entrepreneur.

Being patient and determined also means owning up to your failures and successes.
It’s also your responsibility to learn from these failures and ensure that you don’t go through them ever again.

Beautiful Young Ladies Store

To help you deal with failures and mistakes, you should adopt the abundance mindset.
This mindset helps you in making the most out of your failures.
This mindset helps you in turning strengths into weaknesses.

And last but not the least, always see to it that you are being guided by a map or course of action. Without setting your goals and creating a blueprint on how to reach them, you are going to be blind going in.

So set those goals and write a plan of action before you do anything else.

2/10 Tips for Success Do your research.

Make Your Life Simple

There are a lot of questions that you need answers to before you sit down and write your book. What niches and topics are the most profitable ?
Do non-fiction books sell more than fiction books ?
How much should you price your book ?
These are just some of the important questions you need to research on.
Hire a professional book cover designer to create the cover for your book.

A lot of the people browsing through Amazon’s book section judge books by their covers. Everyone is guilty of this habit whether you like it or not.
We often buy books for the simple reason that we liked the cover. In the same light, we don’t buy books because of how ugly the covers are. So set aside a little bit of your budget to hire a good cover designer.

Offer a few chapters of your book for free.
This is a very common strategy for first-time authors.
If you are confident about the quality of your content, then you shouldn’t worry too much about providing some chapters for free.

This strategy allows potential readers to get a taste of what you’re offering.
Send out free copies of your book to reviewers and bloggers in your niche.
This is a great way to start your word-of-mouth marketing.
Bloggers and digital influencers love getting free stuff and if they enjoyed your book, there’s the likelihood that they’ll write a glowing review about it.

However, never ask for a review in exchange for giving out free copies.
This is against Amazons terms and conditions.
Create a blog around your book.

There will be readers of your book who will like your book enough to want to learn more about you, what you do, or maybe other content you wrote that’s related to the topics in the book. You can fulfill this need by writing a blog.
Create a Facebook page for your book.

This is free and easy to do so there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t do it. Treat your Facebook page as a portal where you get to connect with those who have read your book and those who might be interested in reading it.

Think about writing a series. Many of modern publishing’s most successful writers made a name for themselves by writing book series. Just think of JK Rowling, Robert Ludlum, Clive Cussler, etc.

These are authors who wrote numerous books featuring the same characters.
It’s a powerful strategy. You should try it and see where it goes.
Collaborate with other writers.

Beautiful Young Ladies Store
As much as possible, you should only work with writers who are your equals or your betters. Always remember that you are collaborating with them so that you can use their clout and influence as leverage to promote your book.
Advertise your book.

To make money, you have to spend money.
A good place to start advertising your book is Google Adsense.
Make sure to use relevant keywords in your ads so that the ads will appear in websites and blogs that are relevant to your book’s content.
Run contests and giveaways.
You can run these contests and giveaways on a variety of platforms (i.e. blog, website, Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).

Reviews affect your book’s sales rank.

It has some effect but it’s not substantial. The biggest factors in determining sales rank are purchased and number of downloads. Kindle Select’s 90-day exclusivity also applies to paperback versions of your book.

The second character of the password required to unlock the business scorecard is letter i. Inspiration #2 “Opportunities don’t happen.

You create them" Chris Grosser Business #2 Amazon FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon) Fulfilled by Amazon or FBA is an e-commerce program by the online retail giant.
The program’s business model is very similar to that of dropshipping.
If you are familiar with dropshipping or if you have experience with it, you will find it easy to understand Amazon FBA’s business model.

This opportunity can be very lucrative if you can think of a product that has very little competition within the Amazon network.
The whole process can be simplified in the following steps:
You apply for the Amazon FBA program.

If you are accepted, you ship your products to one of their distribution centers.
The company refers to these distribution centers as fulfilment centers.
You list your products for sale in Amazon.

If someone buys your product, Amazon ships the product to the customer. Looking at the business model of the program, it’s easy to recognize obvious benefits.
For one, Amazon handles the sales and shipping process.
The company receives the orders, process them, and ship the products.
They are literally running the business for you.

Your main responsibility is to keep on sending more of your products to Amazon’s fulfilment centers before these run out of stock. Earlier, we’ve mentioned how the business model is very similar to dropshipping.

This is because you can turn it into a real dropshipping business.
You can enter into a contract with a manufacturer or a supplier who makes the products then ship these on your behalf to Amazon’s fulfilment centers. In this setup, your role is to make sure that the supplier keeps making and shipping the products.
Beautiful Young Ladies Store

You can also choose to have the supplier send the products to you so that you will be the one shipping the products to Amazon.

This is a good idea if you want to make sure that the products you are selling are of the highest quality possible.
Ratings Based on Our Criteria Simplicity:
Starting a business with Amazon FBA can be very complicated because there are a lot of hoops you have to go through.

You have to apply with the program.
You need to make sure that the products pass certain standards,
(e.g. packaging and safety requirements) etc.
And you have to be communicating with your manufacturer/supplier, inspectors etc.

to make sure products are manufactured to specification. If they happen to be in China,
The language barrier and time zone difference could present challenges.

6/10 Passivity:
Managing an Amazon FBA business can take a lot of your time and resources.
Some of your time will be spent communicating with your suppliers, optimizing your listings, running promotions/giveaways, Optimizing your Amazon sponsored ads etc.
However, passivity can be improved by outsourcing some of these tasks to virtual assistants who will take care of them for you.

Virtual assistants can be hired from fiverr.com or upwork.com.
6/10 Scalability: It’s easy to scale your Amazon FBA business.
Once you are accepted into the program and you have successfully launched your first product and familiarized yourself with the process, scaling is as simple as adding more products to your inventory or expanding your product offerings
(i.e. offering your customers complementary products as part of a bundle).

9/10 Competitiveness: Expect a lot of other merchants selling similar products as you.
You might even be getting your products from the same suppliers.
Furthermore, it’s not unusual to compete directly with suppliers from China.
4/10 Tips For Success Do your research before you jump into the bandwagon.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, competition within Amazon is fierce.

So what you need to do is research for products that have good demand but little competition. A good market research software for this is Jungle Scout or Viral Launch Watch and observe your most successful competitors.

What are they doing ?
What tools are they using ?
What marketing strategies are they implementing ?
Learn about these and maybe apply them on your own business.
Encourage your customers to leave reviews.

The more reviews you get on Amazon, the greater the social proof and likelihood of it selling. However, do not offer incentives in exchange for review as this is against Amazon’s terms of service. Optimize your product listings with the right keywords and descriptions.

A good keyword research tool to consider is Merchant Words Use high-quality photos of your products. Ugly and unprofessional product photos can easily turn off customers.
Only deal with reliable manufacturers and suppliers.

If they screw up, then your business is equally screwed. Always check with Amazon to ensure that your products are in stock. Running out of stock can negatively affect your product rankings and once lost its difficult to regain.

Personalize/brand your products to make them stand out from the others.
This is important if you are getting your products from a supplier who is probably sending the same products to other merchants. Offer discounts and incentives to those who are buying in bulk. This is a great way to build loyalty among your customers.

Always follow the rules, regulations, and standards as set forth by Amazon.
Amazon can easily terminate your account if you break a rule or two.

If you write the content yourself, the income you earn can still be considered as partly passive. But if you want to truly turn a blog into a source of real passive income, what you should do is outsource the content-creation process to freelance writers.

You are going to pay other people to write the content that you are going to publish in your blog. With that said, you are not the one actively performing the difficult work of creating content. Finding freelance content creators is not that hard.

There are dozens of job sites and classified ads sites out there where you can find good writers offering affordable rates. These sites include Upwork, Fiverr, Freelancer, Craigslist, and even LinkedIn.

What you do is hire a qualified writer then send him a list of keywords that will be the topics of his articles. It’s as simple as that. Have the articles written, hone them to perfection, and then publish them on your blog. Then rinse and repeat.
