Chapter 1: Concepts & Principles of Passive
Income One of the easiest ways to gain financial independence is to create a stream of income, which doesn’t require you to work actively.

The idea of creating a passive income is to earn money through implementing processes, which enable you to earn an income with little to no effort once the initial foundations have been laid.

What are Passive, Active, and Residual Incomes ?
‘Passive income’ essentially means earning money automatically, while at the same time, requiring less maintenance and without any of your active personal involvement. ‘Residual income’ is passive income that continues to flow in regularly after investing your time, efforts, and participation during the initial stages of work.

A residual income is one of the keys to time freedom and financial freedom.
It occurs when you no longer earn for your personal efforts alone.
Instead, you earn more on the efforts of others,

as well as on the efforts of your money !
On the contrary, ‘active income’ is earning directly by converting time into money. Regardless of its form—whether it is a pay-per-hour job or a salaried occupation—active income is the sum of money received corresponding directly to your time spent working.

With active income, there is a ‘no work-no pay’ policy.
You cannot earn when you do not work. This is the most common income in today’s society. Generally, people who have an active income can only earn based on the total time they have worked.

In comparison to the general public, a smaller proportion of people usually referred
to as “entrepreneurs” earn a passive income from a broad range of sources like real estate rentals, website advertisements, dividends, interests, royalties, franchise fees, etc.

Chapter 2:
Passive Income through
Affiliate Marketing Often bloggers and website creators or owners focus their efforts on promoting particular products or services. As people purchase items through their recommendation, they earn a commission percentage from the sales of the items without extra costs passed on to the purchaser.

In short, affiliate marketing is a ‘cost-per-sale’ (CPS) marketing. It is a low-risk,
high-profit marketing model of attracting unlimited numbers of new customers and leads to a product or service that pays a commission, if and only if, the leads convert to a sale or purchase.

While other business models directly involve taking in customers or working strictly to meet project deadlines, affiliate marketing rather allows you—as a registered affiliate—to earn by referring or recommending merchant products or services that you sincerely believe in and trust.

Dozens of different affiliate broker sites and services are available online. Collectively, they are the ’affiliate networks’ (i.e., ClickBank, Rakuten, Builderall, FlexOffers, etc.). Affiliate networks provide you, as their affiliate, with an array of products or services to pick and promote.

1st passive income idea…
Niche Affiliate Website Becoming an affiliate marketer allows you to create either your own niche affiliate website or affiliate weblog. A niche affiliate website serves as your online platform that focuses on solving a definite problem, which appeals or responds to all the pressing questions people may have about your topic or niche.

The heart-and-soul of your website is to create pages with quality content
and rank them on the search engine results page (SERP) by targeting a specific class of less-competitive keywords. These keywords should entail specifics of the problem, which you resolve by referring to the use of a certain product or service to your site visitors.

Volumes of visiting traffic ensue with your site’s high SERP and keyword rankings. You earn a commission whenever the merchant website completes a purchase transaction through your recommendation !

Passive income idea… Lead Generation Website A lead generation website is generally similar to a niche affiliate website, but with a distinctive twist.

Instead of driving sales for merchant businesses, you deliver them with prospective customers or leads. Earning passive income through sending leads is even much easier than driving sales.

Any site visitor who causes a sales action or conversion only needs to register their interest in order for you to earn! Just imagine a content-rich niche affiliate website that shapes its inquiries into a very high conversion rate.

Operating Costs- 1 | Difficulty Level- 3 | Profit Potential- 4 3rd passive income idea… Coupon | Code Website Who doesn’t love a bargain ?
Whenever possible, people like to know that they have brought something for cheaper than its initial cost. Many local businesses use online coupons to attract new leads and grow customer loyalty to their brands.

A money-saving website provides consumers with direct sales value in the form of rebates or discounts on various products or services. It helps people to find the best and latest promo coupons and codes—either digital discount codes for online use or printable shopping coupons to take to the physical store.

When consumers grab their discount code from your site, stored cookies in the consumers’ browsers convey to the merchant that these consumers were referrals from your coupon website.

Thus, you receive commissions from the merchant once consumers buy something or avail a service. Operating Costs- 1 | Difficulty Level- 3 | Profit Potential- 3 4th passive income idea… Price Comparison Website At some point during a purchasing decision, consumers use a price comparison website to compare prices of certain products or services.

You could build your own price comparison site serving a certain niche, which details accurately your descriptions, reviews, and breakdowns of all the pros and cons of specific brands, products, or services. You earn passive income through your site by referring your readers to certain affiliate links, which they will visit and execute a purchase.

Operating Costs- 1 | Difficulty Level- 3 | Profit Potential- 3 5th passive income idea… Affiliate Blogging | Authority Blogging First and foremost, an affiliate blog site is different than a niche affiliate website.

On one hand, a niche affiliate website generally involves focusing on contents about a product or service, particularly, using keywords that are easier to rank in the SERPs to convert directly the site visitors into actual buyers. On the other hand, an affiliate blog site tends to focus more on the quality of the contents that can build trust, influence, authority, and a brand.

It is essentially a communication platform where you publish your blog posts on a regular basis in order to provide fresh contents on the why’s and the ways before people purchase a product/service. Regular updates in the form of articles, reviews, news, podcasts, and videos about a certain niche market, will help you to enjoy better rankings in the SERPs while building your solid base of followers and subscribers.

You earn passive income as an affiliate blogger in three ways: Products or Services – You sell your own brand of product or service to your blog audience. Affiliate Earnings Via Affiliate Links – You promote affiliate offers and refer sales to merchant businesses by writing about them in your blog.

You may also create training courses or tutorials and other paid writing assignments. Some authority bloggers do both. Advertising – You can also source your income for showing ads on your weblog or receiving clicks on these ads. Advertisers pay you through the cost-per-mille (CPM) of the ads,
or the price advertisers pay per 1,000 ad impressions on your blog page.

Advertisers can also pay you through the cost-per-click (CPC) of the ads,
or the price advertisers pay for each click made in their pay-per-click (PPC)
ad campaigns. Operating Costs- 1 | Difficulty Level- 4 |

Profit Potential- 4 6th passive income idea… Guest Blogging If you have a personal blog site that grows and acquires recognition from many followers, as well as influencers, then you can well afford to perform additional work occasionally as a guest blogger for other sites.

Guest blogging is a content marketing method and search engine optimization (SEO) technique applied by blog owners to increase traffic volume of their sites. As a guest blogger, you offer to write helpful and informative contents on the niche sites of other blog owners.

In exchange, you receive links directed to your own blog site with the opportunities of promoting your own niche blog and authority, as well as drawing in more traffic and attention to your own product or service.

This is the easiest way to earn money online. It does not require any skills
to start. It needs neither running a site nor cash to invest. CPA marketing aims to make consumers take some action (i.e., registering an account, or submitting an email, etc.). Initially, you have to apply as an affiliate marketer for a CPA network (e.g., PeerFly, MaxBounty, Clickbooth, etc.).

The network will pay you for realizing its marketing objective. For instance, you create a Facebook page about a particular game affiliated with the network; you will earn money when people register to play it.

Passive income idea… Google AdSense®

Income Website Using the affiliate broker service of Google AdSense is more convenient and advantageous due to its compatibility with mobile technology.
Ads or links adapt automatically to various screen sizes, thereby, creating greater user experiences and allowing you to keep on earning revenues when your audiences view your website.

Besides, its ‘AdSense Experiments tool provides ad performance periodic reports that help you to assess what ads work for you and fix those that do not.
Thus, you will know the proper ad format and highest-paying ads to place on your site. Google handles the billing process on the advertisers and affiliate networks.
You earn automatically when people click the ads on your site.

However, you will only receive payments after reaching a minimum threshold amount. Operating Costs- 1 | Difficulty Level- 3 | Profit Potential

Selling Guest Posts Similar to guest blogging, you earn by promoting your authority and attracting more traffic to your own blog site or product/service. However, you can earn additional income by selling your posts to other blog sites about your expertise, experience, influence, and authority about your particular niche or market.

Therefore, in order for those highly visible websites and blog sites to purchase your guest posts, you need to have built a reputed name for yourself and your blog site in the blogosphere.

Selling your posts will require you to perform a lot of extensive research targeted to your specific niche industry or area of expertise; however, it will be time well spent.

Operating Costs- 1 | Difficulty Level- 4| Profit Potential- 4 10th passive income idea… Selling Text Links Many advertisers shop for link ads in a marketplace like BackLinks and Text-Link-Ads.

You only have to include your site for validation in the directory of a marketplace and the system will automatically edit, add, or remove any links purchased, and deposit money into your account.

As an affiliate publisher in the marketplace, you will earn recurring revenues monthly for each link that an advertiser picks to purchase on the unused ad space of your website(s).

Thereafter, you will continue earning credits for every link each month, for as long as your link(s) are active. The Domain Authority status of your site dictates the number of credits earned per link.

The quality of your site is also instrumental in the growth of your link credits. Hence, the more authority and quality your site possess, the more passive income you will make. Operating Costs- 1 | Difficulty Level- 3 | Profit Potential- 3 11th passive income idea… Selling Interactive Widget-ize

Ads This is the newest passive income idea. It is also a smarter method of direct advertising online. A fine example is a travel blog, where you would rather have a travel insurance widget and a booking widget in place of a simple display ad in the sidebar.

Visitors can then start clicking through directly in the sidebar; the transaction progresses over to the site of the advertiser. The beauty of interactive widgets is yielding higher click-through rates. With the prevailing average click-through rate of $1 paid by direct advertisers, you can net over $1000 monthly, especially when your site draws in a lot of traffic.

Operating Costs- 1 | Difficulty Level- 3 | Profit Potential- 4 12th passive income idea… Amazon Affiliate Program | Amazon Associates Known as Amazon Associates, the Amazon Affiliate Program is a marketing partnership between you (the advertiser) and Amazon (the seller).

The program gives you a commission whenever your site visitor clicks on your Amazon link and consummates a purchase. Commissions on Amazon are relatively small, starting at 1-2% and often maxing out at about 8-10%.

These rates, however, depend on the type of products you promote as an Amazon Associate. You should also be aware that the program only has 24-hour affiliate cookies unlike those 365-day cookies of other affiliate programs. This denotes that you can only earn a commission if your site visitor clicks on your link and purchases an item within 24 hours.

The Amazon Affiliate Program sells just about everything, but mostly low-priced products such as office supplies and e-Books. The program approves almost everyone who joins its affiliate side, and you can immediately begin promoting Amazon links on your site.

Operating Costs- 1 | Difficulty Level- 3 | Profit Potential- 4 13th passive income idea… Aggregate Affiliate Review Website The general idea of writing an honest review is to persuade your readers to consider their purchase options upon knowing the various positive/negative factors of certain products/services.

Obviously, you earn through generating your affiliate links for the reviewed products/services. Another added bonus of writing niche-focused reviews is making your site content-rich, which is what search engines favor most.
Over time, search engines prefer picking up your keywords, which will boost your site’s SERP rankings.

Robo-Advisor Investment A typical Robo-Advisor collects data and information from you (the investor) about your current financial situation and future goals via an online survey. It then uses your data to offer financial advice; investment management online; and/or, automatically invests your assets.

They provide these low-cost wealth management services and automated investment opportunities based on mathematical algorithms and rules with minimal to moderate human intervention.

Among the growing selection of the top Robo-Advisors are Betterment, Personal Capital, Schwab Intelligent Portfolios, Sig Fig, and Wealthfront. Operating Costs- 2 | Difficulty Level- 4 | Profit Potential- 3 18th

Index Funds Investment | Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) Index funds are passively managed funds aimed to track and resemble the benchmark of a stock market index (i.e., Standard & Poor’s 500, Nikkei 225, or Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100).

They do not outperform the market unlike the actively managed mutual funds do. Fund managers of mutual funds buy and sell investments to reach a certain goal, which is to provide a specific return or beat the prevailing performance of the stock market index.

In effect, mutual funds trade much more frequently, and thus, offer higher returns than index funds. However, mutual funds require higher investment and management fees. Therefore, it would be more beneficial for you to purchase index funds instead of investing in mutual funds since index funds are much less costly to own.

Besides, index funds perform better than mutual funds towards the longer term. Prime examples of index funds are exchange-traded funds whose shares trade generally at near net asset value per share on a securities exchange. You use ETFs as a mode to diversify easily your portfolios at relatively low costs.

passive income idea… Building Certificate of Deposit (CD) Ladders Laddering Certificates of Deposit—or time deposits that usually have less than five-year terms and pay a fixed interest rate—denotes owning several different CDs, each scheduled to mature at different periods during the year.

Thus, you take your CD investment profits as your annual income. Although CDs might not earn as much of a return as other fund investment vehicles, CDs generally come with little to no risk at all.

This ensures a solid and steady passive income source. Operating Costs- Varies depending on your investment capability | Difficulty Level- 1 | Profit Potential- 2 20th

passive income idea… Treasury Bills | Notes | Bonds Investments The ultimate in secure and guaranteed returns of investment are treasury bills or T-bills, along with treasury notes and treasury bonds. These are short-term securities sold in an auction to investors by the government.

As an investor, you purchase T-bills at a discount from their ‘par value’. You receive your earnings at some specified future period, which is anywhere from four days to 365 days. For instance, you pay $4,990 for a T-bill worth $5,000. After that bill matures, you will collect your full $5,000.

The $10-difference is the pegged interest—your reward for lending your money to the U.S. Department of the Treasury within the specified period. T-bills, notes, and bonds only differ with their time horizons. T-bills have a maximum period of 1-year. Notes have maturities of 2, 3, 5, 7, and 10 years.

Bonds mature longer, from 10- to 30-year terms, and offer the middle ground for investing. Bonds are more stable than stocks and produce higher returns than T-bills and notes. Both T-notes and bonds pay out semi-annually with the backing and trust of the U.S. Government.

passive income idea… Annuities | Commercial Insurance Contract Investments
An annuity usually refers to a retirement investment plan offered by an employer
or an insurance company to which you make certain contributions over your entire working life.

The company invests your contributions in other instruments and you immediately or later begin receiving payments—the principal amount plus earnings after your retirement—usually, lasting the rest of your life.

You will have options to purchase from among three common annuity investment models, whichever option suits your needs: qualified deferred annuity plan, nonqualified deferred annuity plan, and an immediate annuity plan. Qualified deferred annuity plans are those 403(b),

traditional 401(k) or Roth 401(k), and tax-deferred annuity (TDA) retirement plans to which you may contribute up to their annual limits and typically start taking income from the annuity after you retire.

A nonqualified deferred annuity is a commercial insurance contract investment that does not have any federal limits on your annual contributions.

However, it does not allow you to withdraw your funds until you turn 59½ years old. An immediate annuity plan is an investment contract you buy in a lump sum, usually when you retire and become ready to start receiving income.

Its payouts start immediately, with the annuity company promising the income to last your lifetime. Nonetheless, watch out for their hidden fees, which can eat into your income value. These fees could be in the form of commissions (when you buy your annuity from a broker), surrender charges (when you withdraw your funds within a lock-up period), and annual fees (to pay for the services of handling your money).

Dividend-Paying Stocks When buying stocks, you are actually placing your money and trust into the hands of a lone company or more entities.

Your only hope is for those companies to stay long enough in business to pay your returns. Dividend income is cash paid to shareholders of company stocks. The income you receive is dependent on the number of stocks you own and the total amount of company profit to divide.

Dividend-paying stocks pay out every quarter.
Each payment gives you the option to reinvest your dividends to purchase more shares of stock. For this investment vehicle, ensure to educate yourself about stockholding. Only pick solid or high dividend stocks to invest so that you can rely on cash dividends in years to come.

If you do not own a stock investment account, then you can check out Vanguard or Ally Invest. Vanguard takes higher commissions but offers more opportunities to invest in foreign stocks. Ally Invest takes lower commissions, but it does not provide access to international markets.

Yet, you can alter the usual approach into a passive income-generating tool.

Unlike active traders, you just need to fit your passive income around your lifestyle instead of dictating it. Therefore, you need not spend all day in front of your computer tracking down the stock markets and performing trades. You may simply want to relinquish your investment capital to a trusted stockbroker or to invest via the automated trading system.


Auto trading, also known as social trading, mirror trading, or copy trading works on the idea of using digital technology to replicate real-time positions or signals of forex/stock trades from other live investors or forex/stock trading system providers you may want to follow.

So, each time they trade, you can copy their trades in your own trading account. Darwinex, eToro, and Pepperstone are just a few copy-trading brokerages to guide your way into passive trading. In the end, it is all about how the services of a broker fit in the puzzle of your investment portfolio.

| Profit Potential- 4 24th passive income idea… Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Lending As a debt financing method, P2P lending enables people to lend and borrow money without using a financial institution to act as an intermediary.

The method involves more risks, and it demands more of your time and efforts compared to the usual brick-and-mortar lending. Similar to traditional lending contracts, it could have possibilities that borrowers default on the loan. Often, borrowers do not qualify for traditional loans from credit unions or banks.

As a P2P lender, you offer personal unsecured loans to small businesses or individuals looking to take out real estate and commercial loans, student loans, payday loans, etc. For your security, you might prefer lending a secured loan by taking luxury assets like jewelry, watches, and fine art as collateral.

The interest you gain from lending can be higher than those conventional financing institutions, usually averaging more than 10%. You can also avail the services of P2P lending platforms (i.e., LendingClub and Prosper), which pair lenders and borrowers. These platforms grade the borrowers by evaluating their credit risk and determining a credit rating.

The grade indicates both the appropriate interest rate and origination fees. It also becomes your criteria for deciding whom to loan. Operating Costs- 5 | Difficulty Level- 5 | Profit Potential- 4

Chapter 4: Passive Income through Brick & Mortar Businesses Brick and mortar (B&M) business typically undergo intervals of boom and bust, peak and lean seasons, and long financial lulls to products flying off the shelves.

Operating the appropriate enterprise can ease these inevitable fluctuating periods.
It can even be a great passive income investment vehicle.

However, a B&M business generally involves higher risks, operating costs,
and more components necessitating more efforts. Thus, before making it as your passive income source, you should study and research more about the dynamics of B&M outlets.

25th passive income idea… Local Business Partnership | Silent Shareholding Instead of offering loans to business owners, you take equity stakes in their businesses.
The bottom line, invest in the right business !

The idea is looking for business owners who already carved a niche in their industry through their existing business systems but are planning for ways to expand their operations. In short, these business owners simply need the extra cash flow in order for their businesses to grow.

In a local business partnership or silent shareholding setup, the business owner handles the day-to-day affairs of the business while you act as a silent partner, collaborating ‘silently’ by putting in your money for the expansion plans of the business. In return, you receive ‘equity’—an ownership interest being a shareholder of the business—and earn shares of the profits.

Venture Capitalism | Risk Capital Venture capitalism, also called risk capital, usually invests in startup companies and innovative enterprises
(i.e., high technology, software development, etc.)

with huge potentials for raking in massive profits. As a venture capitalist, you should also look for businesses with a large potential market, a sound management team, and a unique product/service that has a strong competitive advantage. Additionally, look for opportunities in industries that you are more familiar with the business operations.

Similar to being a silent shareholder, you will have chances of owning large equity positions in your selected companies. Hence, your role can be either as a consultant or as a seating member of the board or as a silent partner who can influence their directions.

Compensation to the fund managers of the venture capital ranges from 18% to 20% of the company profits while the remaining goes to all limited partners investing in the fund. General partners are due to an additional 2% fee.

You can find such businesses for sale at, OLX, LinkBusiness, and AngelInvestorsNetwork. Make sure that the business you pick suits your passions or hobbies. It is also crucial for you to understand how the purchased business works since you always expect the worst circumstances to happen when having your own business.

One reason why you would like to buy an existing business is that the startup costs are high. It makes more financial sense purchasing an already established business than starting from scratch. In order for this business idea to create passive income, ensure that you have someone to run the day-to-day operations of the business.

You also have the option of selling the business after making it more profitable and seek for other more promising opportunities.

Purchasing a Franchise Similar to buying an established local business, purchasing
a franchise business is a bright investment that offers you a built-in process. As a franchise, you pay a start-up fee and annual licensing fees for the right to sell or rent the franchisor’s products and maintain using its name.

The franchisor helps you out in getting started with the operations and even in looking for a good location for the business; thus, giving you more free time
as a business owner.

Purchasing a Vending Machine Business Obviously, vending machines come with higher up-front costs. Yet, maintaining a successful vending machine business helps you to earn passive income over time. Your key is finding the strategic locations to install the machines. You can check out and contact those B&M businesses having more than 100 daily workers in their building.

Ask those workers what preferable items to have in your machines, and then, stock accordingly. If you wish to reduce your involvement in the business, then you can hire someone who will stock your machines.

Launching a Local/Micro-Business & Outsourcing It Starting a business from scratch can take tons of your time, efforts, and resources.

Besides, many B&M businesses can barely scratch the surface of their potential, especially in driving sales. However, once you have ironed out the details of your small business and lined up a few clients, you can outsource everything—from management to marketing to operations, and even to customer support.

The idea is to have the right and reliable people who can take over and run the business for you. Outsourcing also denotes the divergence of your operations with online services to dig deeper on the marketing possibilities of your B&M business.
In its entirety, you only need to check your business occasionally and spend the rest of your time building your next businesses.

Chapter 5: Passive Income through Bricks & Clicks Businesses Bricks & clicks (B&C) businesses or the combination of traditional business operations carried out on physical premises and digital technology applications have increasingly expanded since the 2000s.

More and more established companies and entrepreneurs have been creating profitable products such as web apps, mobile apps, and other software apps
for digital distribution to customers online. These innovative technological applications offer more value to all B&C businesses without delivering physical products or direct services.

They eliminate directly the need for manufacturing the products, stocking or warehousing them, as well as distributing them through a network of delivery services, shipping, and physical retail outlets. More importantly, they enhance
user experiences or the buying processes of the customers.

In effect, B&C businesses have become the ideal mode of doing business nowadays. 31st passive income idea... Drop Shipping Store | e-Commerce Website With the booming growth of e-Commerce, drop shipping has become a very popular retailing concept.

It is a revolutionary concept, which essentially rids out most of the frustrations involved in operating a retail store and the entailing risks of selling physical products. You create an online retail store (drop-shipper) that offers products from third-party suppliers or manufacturers.

When your costumers visit your store to order and pay for a product, your drop-shipping system collects your sales profits and sends the orders to your specific supplier.

Your supplier will then complete the orders by shipping the items directly to your customers (refer to Image-2). It is as simple as that! Its principal benefits include the following: Low Operating and Launching Costs – You do not invest up front in your product inventory.

No Stocking of Product Inventories and Handling of Shipping and Product
Returns – Your suppliers carry your inventory levels, handle shipping/delivery, and item returns. Less Risky – It does not necessitate you to purchase in bulk stocks, which might not sell.

Mobile- and Location-Independent – You may run your business from anywhere else, for as long as you have a strong internet connection. Your site has the potential to earn from $10,000+ per month in net profit. Similar to most drop shipping sites, your traffic originates mostly from Facebook ads.

Running a strong and sustainable drop shipping business only takes less
of your time. The bulk and vital cog of your work are generally implementing effective marketing strategies, fulfilling orders, customer support service,
and maintenance.

However, you can readily outsource each of these scopes of work. Additionally, it is important to look for those reliable suppliers with competitive products. You should collaborate with suppliers on AliExpress.

To power your site, you may use Shopify (the leading e-Commerce site solution for drop shippers).

Launching an Online Storefront at Shopify® Whether you intend selling creative stuff you made or reselling items you bought, expand your market base by launching an online storefront.

The difficulty level only depends on what you sell. It could be more difficult to sell personal creations than reselling items that already exist. Either way, e-Commerce websites like Shopify can make it easier than ever to earn passive income by selling items online. Shopify has ready-made templates to make it easier for you to create, design, and manage your online store.

Antiques and rare collectibles sell better on e-Bay than other e-Commerce sites.
E-Bay also accepts other things that Amazon stores do not sell such as used baby items and used clothing. The site even performs selling better with larger items such as furniture and auto vehicles.

However, listing items on e-Bay does involve more work and it can take longer to sell your things on e-Bay than to sell them on Amazon. Alternatively, you can create your e-Bay business by buying products at thrift stores and reselling them at a higher margin.

Your key to this income stream is sharpening your ability to choose the right items to sell—either too overpriced or not easily available locally.
An example of this is buying items in bulk at lower prices that are only available in one location. You then sell them on e-Bay internationally at premium prices that include high foreign rates.

3rd Party Selling on Amazon® Store Be a third-party seller on Amazon stores worldwide and earn money by importing cheaper, refurbished, used, new, and collectible merchandise, and then, selling it for a larger profit. Nearly half of Amazon sales come from items sold by individual third-party sellers.

You can also exploit a temporary discrepancy in prices by setting your own prices for the items you sell on the site. Therefore, prices can vary for identical or similar items from other sellers. The bottom line though for all third-party sellers is buying low and selling high.

With Amazon, you will have more tools to reach and capture a broader market with your products. However, you need to learn how to build your profitable Amazon affiliate store that functions as a powerful e-Commerce site.

You must also know which bestselling products on Amazon are before you sell. Otherwise, you will only be tying up your money on items that carry much stiffer competition among fellow sellers on the site. As a third-party seller, you receive orders just as customers place their orders on

After the customers added the items to their carts and completed these orders via the Amazon checkout process, Amazon disburses their funds to you without passing along any payment information of the customers.

Twitter, and Product Hunt to create
a buzz for the official launching of your online marketplace. Once you completed your website design and launch, you can start receiving your first few sign-ups.
You earn passive income by charging customers a monthly subscription fee to your chosen niche.

Online Business Investment Planning to operate your own online business can take you more time and efforts during its startup phase. Fast track your plans by buying an existing online business that already generates steady income.

Check out the listings of Biz Buy Sell, Empire Flippers, and Flippa for hundreds of passive income-generating online businesses up for sale. For only a few thousand bucks, you can grab a bargain that earns profits ranging anything from $1,000 to $5,000 per month.

Additionally, you should learn some fundamentals of online marketing so that you will be able to grow and maintain the business from the time of your purchase.
You may render some minor tweaks of your online business by implementing a conversion rate optimization process—a method of growing your sales by or from the volume of your traffic.

The process further involves installing some basic strategies as follows:
Squeeze Page—a landing page designed to capture and squeeze opt-in email addresses of your site visitors or potential subscribers Email Autoresponder—a program that automatically generates sets of responses to all messages sent to certain email addresses Lead Magnets—are incentives or opt-in ‘bribe’ you offer to potential buyers in return for having their contact information such as name, email address, phone number, etc.

By implementing these simple tweaks, you can take your business to another level.
It is common for online businesses to double their profits just by simply optimizing some sections of their site.

Compared to buying a B&M business, the risks in buying an online business are lower. Online businesses are cheaper and do not have much overhead cost and physical assets to deal with.

Website | Blogsite Flipping
You may also flip the online business or blog site you have just bought.
If your intent is to make a quick profit without going through all the hassles of operating the business further, you can try to sell it for more than you have invested in to it.

Many blog owners sell their sites because they no longer have the time to run them. Some burn out because their blog site no longer makes enough money, others just cannot refuse a good offer. It will take further research to look for a blog site worth buying.

At the very least, the blog site must be a year old and receive 10,000 visits per month. Half of these monthly visits must come from search engines; meaning, the blog site has sound SEO fundamentals. It should also be under-monetized, which denotes that the owner has not exploited optimally its potentials.

Buying/Selling Domain Names Internet domain names can be priceless. Search engines provide value to a domain name as an indication of a site topic. What then could be the domain names to look for, buy, and sell ?

The short answer to this is; it could be just about anything you can imagine an entrepreneur might come across and start a business using. Some of these entreprenours will be willing to pay anything from $500 to $2,000+ to secure
the right domain name.

Choosing a good domain name to purchase does involve some luck. However,
there are also ways of researching names, which could be classified as ‘better’.

Exact match domains (EMDs) are great because they match precisely a targeted search engine query and can obtain high rankings in the SERPs for such query; but Google has started penalizing the use of EMDs, especially for a low-quality content site using the domain.

You could also try those alternate top-level domains (i.e., .info, .tv, .me, etc.), but 80% of the market still remains looking for the

Thus, your safest bet would be looking for strong keywords, which can receive at least 800 monthly searches globally. Alternatively, you can readily buy domain names at Flippa. Once you register your domain names, simply hook them up to GoDaddy auctions.

You just set a reserve price, and then, wait.
Although much of these names never sell, the 20% that do make the holding periods of all your domains worthwhile.

Website Rental Business The website rental business is actually a more stable and profitable type of online passive income generation. It enables you to earn money now and onwards through residual earnings. Think about this: When buying and selling a site, you have to shell out a substantial amount upfront.

At the same time, you need to improve the site for SEO, quality contents, etc.
Besides, you will have to look for a willing buyer who will be paying you more than your original purchase price of the site, as well as compensating for your time and efforts in improving it.

With a website rental, you can simply build your site from the ground up. In short,
you can build it much cheaper. As soon as you find renters, you just plug in their businesses while charging them a monthly or yearly fee.

From thereon, you only have to develop contents occasionally and perform routine site maintenance, regular tasks that any site owner does responsibly.

Real Estate Investment During the olden days, you needed huge sums of money so that you can invest in real estate. Thanks to major advances in modern technology, investing in real estate has now become liberalized.

You can now get started to invest in real estate even if you only have $1,000
or $500 in your pocket. If you really do not have any but your credibility and an honest repute, then you can be creative by using other people’s money (OPM).

43rd passive income idea…
Using Other People’s Money (OPM) in Real Estate Investment Deals Many seasoned entrepreneurs rely on real estate investment deals as their prime investment strategy because the risks involved are only minimal. Thus, it can also be your safest sanctuaries to invest or hedge your funds into and earn a steady stream of passive income.

Investing in real estate deals is particularly about buying rental properties.
If you would be investing by your own, success in real estate investments would rather require you to be completely proficient and skilled with:

Leveraging your bank funds or loans Looking for the best rental properties Searching for the appropriate tenants With only little cash in your pocket, your best route to investing in property deals is to leverage bank funds or using other people’s money (OPM).

This helps you to optimize and augment your cash flow.
Try figuring out this example: You have an opportunity for investing in a rental property but do not have the cold cash to purchase and invest in it. You will then use a favorable loan from your bank to mortgage the property and pay
for a down payment.

You rent out the purchased property monthly using the loan pay down scheme.
This implies that after obtaining a loan to buy your property, your tenant will actually be paying off part of your monthly loan payments.

Real Estate Investments Trust (REIT) A REIT is a professionally managed investment scheme modeled after the mutual fund program where shareholders fund the business and trade in their diversified holdings. It owns, operates, and finances income-generating real properties.

The trust program provides you with so many opportunities for acquiring ownership of residential houses, apartment complexes, and commercial properties in two principal ways:

Equity REIT—lets you own properties while earning money by leasing them out. Mortgage REIT—lets you own mortgages by purchasing them from moneylenders for mortgages.

You earn from the interests gained on the mortgage loans.
A REIT is a safe and reliable choice to invest your funds since it involves
the following: Regular Dividends for Shareholders:

As mandated by law, it maintains a dividend payout ratio or the amount earned by shareholders relative to 90% of taxed profits of the company. Lesser Capital Costs:
It only requires a minimum of $500 to start investing and no work at all. Reduced Taxation: It does not pay taxes on the dividends.

Lower Volatility:
It has a stable and strong market record for shielding the investment from inflations and appreciating long-term shares.
Mostly, a REIT pays monthly dividends to the shareholders with a typical ROI ranging from 4% to 7%; so, for your minimum $500-investment on a 6% ROI,
it translates to a $2.50-monthly earning.

So, you will need to think about investing a larger sum of money if you want to enjoy something that approximates to decent returns.

Crowdfunded Real Estate Investment Platforms (Fundrise®) Real Estate may be a great way to earn while you are asleep, but it somehow requires steeper costs to purchase one. Hence, for a less costly option, you can join and use a crowdfunding platform.

The Fundrise crowdfunded Real Estate investment platform is an easy and low-cost investment program that only requires you to pay out $500 as your initial investment. The program offers three major online REIT options:
Income e-REIT™—focuses on investments in high quality and debt-ridden properties. Growth e-REIT™—a buy-and-hold strategy when demand exceeds supply, stressing on value investment in low-cost housing units.

Equity e-REIT™—a liquidity redemption plan offered quarterly.
As most property deals require at least $5,000, you can also reckon with RealtyShares, which requires a $1,000 minimum initial investment.

With RealtyShares, the platform allows you to choose a particular property of your choice to invest. While it caters mostly to solutions for common equity debts and commercial senior debts (high-priority debts), RealtyShares also increases leveraging your finances by providing financing solutions for subordinated debts or junior debts.

This means that your debt, as an unsecured creditor, can be up for payment
in the event of insolvency, but only after the platform settles completely the claims
of secured creditors and senior debts.

In other words, a subordinated debt carries higher risks for the platform since it incurs a lower priority for repayments. For this reason, the interest rates and repayment terms are less favorable than senior debts. Put in mind that certain levels of risks are common in investing.

Storage Space Rental (STOW-IT®) Host your extra, vacant, or idle spaces since other people would always be thinking whether there exists a sort of service like Airbnb for storing or warehousing their huge possessions like a recreation vehicle (RV), boat, etc.

Fact is that STOW-IT is altering the storage sector by networking people who have vacant storage spaces with others who badly need it! Its services offer clients a wide array of storage space types to choose from and rent. You may list your extra spaces on their marketplace for a quicker and more convenient booking for their occupancies.

The listing cost is free and the process only takes you a few minutes by logging on to their site. Unlike other traditional storage rental or warehousing companies, STOW-IT does not have lock-in contract agreements with you for listing your storage spaces with them.

Short-Term Accommodation Rental (Airbnb®) Similar to the idea of renting out your storage spaces, you can also lease out your guest room or vacation home that has been unoccupied or only used a couple of times a year.

Space rental marketplaces and travel hospitality websites such as Airbnb, VRBO (Vacation Rentals by Owner), and HomeAway enable you to list your properties and vacant lodging spaces on their respective marketplaces.
Your income depends on the terms of tenure.

A shorter-term rental of your space earns you more compared to a traditional lease. Although there are pros and cons in listing and leasing out your space on each marketplace, you can systemize them. Verify first with your local laws whether offering short-term rents are legal in your area. The risks involved are just usually those horrible stories from irresponsible tenants.

The contract stipulates the terms of payment, fees, and rental duration (this can vary from daily, weekly to monthly basis). JustPark will collect the first monthly rental fee, and thereafter, set up the continuous payments on your behalf.

Airport Parking Space Investment Due to the limited time and effort needed to handle assets while yielding high returns, investing in airport parking spaces becomes the new path for traditional investment vehicles.

The industry generates ROI of up to 12% more compared to the usual investment methods. The aviation industry, particularly in the U.K., continues to grow and gain momentum without showing signs of slowing down.

dapting to this business environment is to invest in the high demand for new parking spots across multiple airports, which are busy hives and prime real estate properties. For this type of investment, it only involves taking an airport car parking spot that requires you performing a few easy tasks.

Thereafter, you just add value to the real property or your car park services by maintaining it regularly or implementing a redevelopment. Typically, your initial investment for one parking spot would be roughly $30,000.

Similar to investing in real estate property deals, you will have to use OPM or acquire a loan from your bank so you will fully own the parking spot(s) and have a title deed, which guarantees your absolute property ownership.

On 12% ROI, you will surely earn at least $300 monthly doing nothing !
What more if you take more spots ?
For the first few years, you will receive fixed returns as an investor.
After which, you can shift into a business scheme where you will earn an equal share of the profits from the entire car parking area.

Digital Real Estate:
Paid Content Models (Subscription DNA®) In terms of digital real estate, recall your niche affiliate website. Monetizing its content or marketing instruments is another desirable source of earning passive income from it.

This does not mean installing banner ads on your site using Google AdSense. Instead, you apply for a paid content model that sells your digital real estate
for advertising.

A paid content model could be either a one-time subscription mode or a regular membership. With this model, when a visitor-customer goes to your site, you go simultaneously behind your installed paywall—your website feature thatallows exclusive access to paid-up subscribers for exclusive pages or premium contents; and then, you start charging the customer for accessing all of your articles.

Essentially, your site presents some of your contents free while it pegs a
price for those more compelling and valuable informative articles or exclusive contents (i.e., eBook, graphics, definitive guide, white paper, podcast, etc.).


Chapter 8:
Passive Income through Consultancy & Instructional Services Consultancy is the practice of giving your professional advice or providing your expertise to a business or an individual consumer.

As a consultant, you are acting in an advisory capacity of helping to bring about people and business entities from their current circumstances to their desired situation. The best business consultants typically perform their trade by asking the important questions.

They mostly derive these questions from their skills and knowledge accumulated through the years of direct participation in specific activities.

In short, people and business hire consultants for their experiences to facilitate demands like: Skills and Knowledge—to equip people or businesses on achieving their goals.

Acceleration—to achieve their goals and aspirations faster. Tested System—to enable following a proven system. However, you do not need formal qualifications or special certificates to create a flourishing coaching business.

Digital Marketing Agency Services Some businesses do not have proven systems in place to acquire their new customers or leads. They simply depend on referrals and word-of-mouth advertising. This poses a big problem in most industries like forcing businesses to close due to a lack of customers.

However, if you can offer solutions to such issues, then you can possibly hit a goldmine through the digital marketing consulting business model.

Typically, a digital marketing consulting agency helps certain tradesmen (from plumbers to electricians) and professionals (from therapists to dentists) to gain more clients through Facebook ads or Google’s pay-per-click advertising.

Therefore, your consulting agency will be an online business that provides your clients with various digital marketing services. You should specialize in a specific niche or selected field so that you can establish your expertise and authority, as well as to charge higher fees.

This is not solely a passive income idea, especially right from the start; but after you established your specialization in your niche, you can already outsource most of the tasks like setting up your reliable and proven digital systems for helping professionals acquire more customers.

Backseat Recruitment Business Job recruitment consultants are those who look for ideal and qualified candidates for specific job vacancies. They focus their search on senior managerial or high profile job vacancies since they earn more commission in the process.

A recruiter can bring home commission earnings between 15% and 30% of the annual salary of each candidate landing the job. Hence, for a $150,000 annual income of an IT cyber-security director, that translates to $45,000 yearly at 30% or $3,750 monthly for only a single person !

Operating and launching expenses are insignificant for this type of business.
To get started, you only need a stable internet connection service, a laptop, a smartphone, and a regular LinkedIn Recruiter subscription account so you can
recruit passive or active talents.

The process involves identifying job vacancies and looking for suitable matches via LinkedIn. Thereafter, you will reach out to prospects and start the ball rolling.

Perhaps, the most crucial part of this passive income endeavor is having exceptional soft skills—desirable qualities inherent in certain professions, which do not necessarily depend on acquired knowledge.

These traits include a positive and flexible attitude; sound practical judgment; common sense; and, the ability to deal with people, especially in building rapport and forging new connections. You may also incorporate a business and come up with tested processes of scouring job vacancy leads and reaching agreements with employers.

By working these out by yourself, you will know what works for you and what does not. Furthermore, you can hire and train other people to do all the works for you. Ideally, when employing recruitment consultants, offer them a lower pay, but provide them with an attractive incentive package.

Getting Paid for Sharing Your Opinions (Surveys on the Go®)
Earn cash for your opinions! The free app Surveys on the Go allows you to answer anonymously survey questions across a variety of topics for market research. The upside of the app over other survey systems is that it lists and pays your completed surveys in cash instead of points.

However, its only disadvantage, like any other surveys, is that you will sometimes consume a lot of your time for only a minimal reward. Worse, there are times that you have already gone through answering many questions but suddenly told that you do not qualify for the survey.

Licensing an Idea/Patent A patent is your crucial document that grants ownership to your invention. Yet, simply owning a one can hardly generate money for you. To profit from your idea, you must sell the patent, license usage rights, or market the product yourself. However, before you sell your product, ensure to ask your contacts or agents for the wholesale price that a company-buyer intends to charge and the sales projections of your invention.

In addition, find out whether the company-buyer wants a non-exclusive or an exclusive license on your invention. For a non-exclusive license, you would still be able to ask other companies and seal licensing deals with them too, but usually offering a lower payout. On the contrary, an exclusive license will not allow you to license out your idea or invention to anybody else for a specified period of time.
This licensing type rather pays you a higher royalty.

Once a company-buyer has become your licensee, expect your passive income royalty checks to arrive on a much later date (usually, months, or even years) before the company has developed, manufactured, and sold your invented product.

Nevertheless, if you are able to license a number of invention ideas every year and earn 3% to 5% in royalties from them, you will be right on your tracks to generate a stream of a passive income.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Business SaaS is a software distribution and subscription-powered business model, where a third-party provider hosts the software’s applications and makes them available online for customers, who pay a monthly subscription fee for the service.

SaaS, along with infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as0-a-service (PaaS), is among the principal components of cloud computing—or using a network of remote servers hosted on the Web to store, manage, and process data instead of a personal computer or local server.

In this regard, creating your SaaS business is one of the toughest passive income concepts to fulfill. A SaaS business necessitates a larger start-up capital and substantial time to engage with it.

However, investing your expertise and money in it always beats the angel investor or a private investor who measly gains 1% shareholding in a business. SaaS businesses take on all shapes and sizes within various industries. ConvertKit is one good example.

The software business specializes in email marketing for bloggers and site owners. It provides them with user-friendly software, like an email autoresponder, to create and operate their own email marketing campaigns.

Its payment plans range from $29 to $79 or more monthly, depending on the number of subscribers a blogger has. Think about the earnings you will gain with your SaaS business if you have 1,000 customers paying you $29 per month. That equates to a whopping $29,000 in monthly recurring revenues (MRR) !

Tweaked SaaS Business A tweaked SaaS business closely resembles a regular SaaS business; only, it brings into the mix the affiliate niche marketing business model. Actually, most of the typical SaaS companies apply or integrate other business models to optimize their profits.

It also charges a monthly subscription fee from customers using its service.
To illustrate, take the DomCop software for example. The helpful software has a very powerful search feature that enables people to look for the expired domains they badly need.

In other words, it functions like a human serialized information organizer.
When you search for DomCop, its site is full of conspicuous buttons that will
be taking you to the various domain registrars so you can bid for or purchase an expired domain. For all you know, each of these buttons is actually an affiliate link !

Direct Mailing:
Standard Rate and Data Service (SRDS) Business Model Many online entrepreneurs no longer indulge with direct mailing because most people hardly know how to capitalize it. Besides, direct mailing is a bit expensive since it entails the massive use of postage.

However, the SRDS is a clever business idea. Its business model exploits the optimum usage and efficacies of the currently underused strategy of direct mailing. In their media platform, it carries volumes of direct mailing list information, which people access and use to identify large groups of individuals who share a common interest.

The mailing list serves as a consumer base for business enterprises to offer their brands or products/services. Rely on the trusted old school of direct mailing. While email boxes of people keep on flooding, their drop boxes are constantly empty !

Like printing newsletters, direct mailing touches more on marketing
your brand through a personal level. The entire direct mailing concept
initiates you, as a business enterprise, to take the following steps:
Identify your dynamic market base in the SRDS platform, as well as the purchasing histories of your prospects.

Research and read informative materials pertaining to your identified market. Redefine the useful information from your research to outline the content of your product information letter. Ensure writing a compelling sales letter; otherwise, you will be unable to convert. Contact the SRDS list broker and order to rent your required contacts.

Deliver your physical sales letter via direct mail to half of your rented contacts to gauge their interest. If you receive some decent response, which is essentially a few sales, then rent the entire list of contacts and mail them your sales letter. If you follow these steps, then buckle yourself down to rake in enormous amounts of money within 45 to 60 days.

Say, you decided to sell your product for $100 and sent your sales letter via direct mail to 1,000 people. If a measly 3% of the recipients bought your product, then pat your back as you just earned $3,000 !

The SRDS business model does not generate passive income for you.
Only use its strong potentials to create huge sums of cash in a short period. Just do not forget to hire a few hands to help you in writing out the addresses for your recipients.
