How to Create Passive Income Online

For most normal people, working 9-5, Monday through Friday can really start to feel like a dead end.

To put it bluntly, most of us hope for a little more in life than working 40 hours a week for the next 30 years or so to maybe retire and have enough money to be sustainable.

So instead of promising another get rich quick scheme, or slipping into your Facebook PM’s to share a special “business” opportunity with you, let me introduce you to the idea of passive income.

With passive income – money never sleeps. So quite literally, passive income is a financial opportunity that anyone and everyone can, and should, be putting into practice.

Here’s the part with passive income most people won’t share with you – it takes work. Passive, income regardless of the form, is an investment, and investments take time and effort. But at the end of the day, if you want to build wealth, quit your day job, and invest your resources wisely – check out these ways to create passive income right now online.

Online Courses

Online courses can be an extremely effective way to generate passive income. Depending on what you desire to accomplish, creating a course and curriculum can be as easy or as challenging as the effort you put into it.

If you have a lower budget and don’t have an established audience just yet, you can use a free platform like Loom to screen record tutorials and host your course on a platform like Udemy that will market it for you. Otherwise, reach out to your email list, and use a hosting platform like Teachable or CourseCraft that will help you launch your curriculum.

Membership Site

Instead of continuing to bust your tail trying to sell content – consider batching it for membership. Batching your content simply means creating multiple pieces of content in one sitting – and with a membership website, you can generate monthly revenue doing just this. Charge a lower price to get clients in the door, and watch your money accumulate over time.

Affiliate Marketing

Different than multi-level marketing, affiliate marketing simply gives affiliates, preferably in a company’s target audience, a code with a discounted rate. The affiliate is paid commissions for the sales they make on your product, and as a result, affiliates drive more traffic to your website.

There’s no pyramid structure or contractual compensation agreement here and the affiliate is paid commission off of their sales. Basically, think of affiliate marketing as selling your product at a lower rate (to pay the commission) to sell more products.

On the flip side, you can also make passive income by becoming an affiliate. If you have a product you love and truly believe in, consider asking that company for an affiliate code to give to your family and friends to give them a discount, and receive a portion of the sale. Just don’t get spammy.

YouTube

Everyone loves YouTube, and you don’t have to be the next big influencer to generate passive income here. Though curated videos and excellent content can be desirable, think of YouTube as a search engine. How often do you find yourself on this platform looking for a tutorial?

To generate passive income on this platform, it’s as simple as creating a channel filming tutorials or explaining concepts relevant to the things you’re passionate about. Then, you can pocket the extra income over time on ads.

Have a family member that needs help refurbishing furniture? Film it. Got a college degree in film or literature that you’re not using? Teach some YouTube course on that subject. Working on a project for a marketing client? Film a tutorial of the steps you take to do it.

Amazon

Amazon does just about everything now – including more affiliate marketing. Their Amazon Associates program is essentially just a broader form of affiliate marketing that allows you to advertise products relevant to you in order to monetize your website. It’s easy to join, and if you’ve got a passion project type of blog, this would be a great place to make some extra income.

Sell Your Own Product

You used to only be able to generate passive income by selling physical products – but thanks to the internet, you can sell digital ones too. Whether it be an E-Book, template, script, spreadsheet, song, movie, or tutorial, you can sell it online.

  • Here’s a #TravelTuesday tip: GET ✈️ ENOUGH ✈️ SLEEP ✈️! I can sleep on planes, trains, automobiles, and have even slept through tornadoes and one Earth quake. (And through a riot in the occupied part of Israel...😬) When changing time zones, adjust as quickly as you can. A 5+ hour difference may not seem like a big deal, but it can catch up to you quickly if you’re not used to it. 😴
  • You're engaged! Congratulations! So...now what? ⠀
⠀
The first few days (or weeks) can feel totally overwhelming, but they don't have to be. I asked Kyle for his advice for folks who are newly engaged and they lined up EXACTLY with my list. (Read them all on my blog #linkinbio)
⠀
What advice would you give to newly engaged couples? ❤️💍#WeddingWednesday
  • According to a 2015 survey, only 29% of Americans have ever been abroad. 29%!!! ⠀
⠀
Europeans are lucky – most countries there are about the size of our individual states and public transportation and quick flights make weekend trips such a breeze. Although the U.S. is HUGE, there is a lot more of this world to see. ⠀

Is one of your New Year's Resolutions to get your passport?  Visit a new country? A new continent? ⠀

Take my advice: pick a location, buy the ticket, and just GO. 🌎✈️

  • "Twice in the 1930s, censors in Washington, D.C., sent letters to the American Institute for Economic Research demanding that we shut down our presses. Twice our founder E.C. Harwood refused to do so. Twice government backed down.⠀
⠀
What were we doing wrong? We had published articles taking issue with New Deal economic policy. Nothing more. In those days, however, dissent was rare, first because it was dangerous and second because there was such an overwhelming intellectual consensus in favor of the policies of Franklin Roosevelt.⠀
⠀
Why were they so worried about some small newsletters and books being printed by AIER? Because ideas are ultimately more powerful than armies. Ideas can turn history on a dime, and in defiance of even the world’s most fierce states." ~ Jeffrey Tucker⠀
⠀
Beyond proud that we published 33 works, old and new, in 2019. The best is yet to come. 📚❤️
  • Woke up Jan. 1 like, “oh, sh*t, we’re getting married this year.” 🥂
(We’re taking engagement pics soon I swear.) #GetYourLiverReady #WeDontReallyHaveAHashtag
  • 2019 was probably the best way to end the decade. Clients served, opinion pieces written, publications on Amazon, long stays in Europe and the Middle East, and FINALLY got engaged to @kylepierce17. Oh, and writing more for FUN! I put together a list of readers’ favorites from my site this calendar year. My goal is to share as much as possible about my travels and how I make #remotelife not only work but flourish. Thank you for following along with me! #linkinbio
  • Helllooooo from Miss America FINALS! 👸✨
  • “Chloe Anagnos: cultivating a career beyond borders.” 🌍✈️📝
⠀
SO HAPPY with how my logos turned out for my website refresh! Kara is an amazing designer and helped me come up with the perfect tagline for the purpose of my site – writing about my travels, career, and best #digitalnomad tips. Check out my blog for more. ❤️
  • The dream of the 90s is alive in Great Barrington 🥂
  • “Just add three letters to Paris, and you have paradise.” – Jules Renard ✨🇫🇷
⠀
I had to spend my first time on the European continent in Paris. I studied French from grades 7 – 12 and even earned a minor in college! I wish I would have had the time to study abroad when I was younger, but I’m grateful that I was able to experience Paris in the winter of 2018. ⠀
⠀
There’s something magical about wandering the halls of the Louvre and warming up with a café au lait during a light snowfall.⠀
⠀
From the art to the food, the fashion and awe-inspiring architecture, the City of Lights has a little something for everyone.⠀
⠀
Read 21 quotes to inspire you to experience one of my favorite European cities #ontheblog #linkinbio
  • "You should dye your hair."⠀
⠀
"I hear Americans get drugged."⠀
⠀
"Are there terrorists?"⠀
⠀
I've stayed in a lot of places that are considered "dangerous" and these are the comments/questions I get the most. ⠀
⠀
My response is always the same.⠀
⠀
Altering my appearance to "blend in" is silly and not all parts of Central & South America or the Middle East are dangerous. In Israel, you're going to see soldiers with machine guns in public places. Expect to see the same in most of Latin America outside of resorts. ⠀
⠀
If you're looking for trouble you're bound to find it, regardless of location. (And as a writer who covers oppressive/corrupt governments, I know I'm not always going to be the most welcome wherever I go.)⠀
⠀
But, I choose not to live in fear. ⠀
