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.

  • An honest review of camel milk: the series. 🐫 SWIPE 😂
  • I went with a bare face to TWO meetings this morning?! I’ve always struggled with my skin and finding a good dermatologist, skincare from @the_lassi_indpls, and @michianamicroblading have been instrumental in taking care of acne and scarring from my teenage years + thin and frail brows. Plus moisturizing. And drinking water. And washing my hands before I touch my face. And wearing sunscreen. #AsSheIs
  • One of the biggest reasons why Americans don’t travel abroad – other than not having a passport – is the cost of airfare. Rising taxes, hidden fees, and baggage add-ons don’t help, but if you can manage to travel only with a carryon and during the offseason, then it IS possible to travel frugally. ⠀

My roundtrip from Cincinnati to Iceland? $300⠀
Chicago to Paris? Close to $350⠀
One way from JFK to London? $290 ⠀

I don’t usually travel outside of the U.S. during Q4 (because it’s expensive) but I’ve got Colombia, Peru, Iceland again, and wherever we decide to go on our honeymoon on my list for 2020. I’ve written a list of the biggest ways I save money on plane tickets #ontheblog. ⠀

Where do you want to go in 2020?

  • As a 10-year-old “Mengele Twin,” Eva Kor suffered some of the worst of the Holocaust. At 50, she launched the biggest manhunt in history. In her 80s, she circled the globe to promote the lesson her journey taught: healing through forgiveness.
When I first heard her message about forgiveness in 2014, it challenged me to reflect on my life and live with more intention.
My recent travels to Israel not only emphasized her message but how important freedom is for ALL people – regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, nationality, sex, identity, etc.
"Eva: A-7063," tells the full, astonishing story of Eva, tracking her from Auschwitz to Israel to the United States - even into the U.S. Capitol for her jaw-dropping arrest - and ultimately to her courageous return to the Nazi death camp. It reveals her hidden pain, unbridled rage and unextinguished love for humanity that transformed her into an international spokeswoman followed by millions.
I'm excited to partner with the Indianapolis chapter of @affnetwork, @aierdotorg, and the Indianapolis chapter of @bastiatsociety to bring Eva's story to the Indy community with a free community screening this Sunday at the Indiana Historical Society.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the screening will begin at 6 p.m. A Q&A session will follow with the director of the film, Ted Green. A reception with appetizers and drinks will take place afterward in the Indiana Historical Society lobby.
Tickets for the reception are $10 and proceeds will benefit @candlesmuseum in Terre Haute, Indiana.
I hope you'll join us for what I know will be an impactful event. (Register for tickets at the #linkinbio.)
  • Looking for the point behind all of those "OBJECTIVE" blurbs at the top of résumés...
I've written and edited A LOT of résumés, cover letters, CVs, and LinkedIn profiles. What annoys me the most at the start of any editing process is the giant "OBJECTIVE" that's slapped on right after contact information. 
Your objective is to get the job, not to awkwardly put your five-year plan above what already speaks for itself – your experience. Plus, you'd be better off talking about your career objective/goals in person with the interviewer so they can ask you follow up questions. (Sometimes, it's okay to purposefully be a little vague!) As we quickly approach the new year, check out my website for more résumé tips if your goal is to land your dream job in 2020.
(I have room in my October schedule to review 5 résumés fo' free; shoot me a message if you want to take me up on it.)
  • *Trying to think of something inspiring to say about the fact that there's three months left of this decade...* Finish the degree, ask for the raise, write the business plan, start the blog...just START. 
If there's anything I've learned in the last decade, it's that there is no such thing as the "perfect time" and that opportunities will arise when you least expect them. 
So just say "yes," and you'll figure it out afterward. (Read more about my unconventional career on my website. #linkinbio)
