The first and simplest way to earn passive income online is to create a blog. You might even be doing it already without knowing you can earn from it.
Your blog can cover any topic you want. It can be something personal or professional in nature. Just make sure it’s a topic you are particularly knowledgeable about and passionate enough to consistently update.
If you’re into cars, write about cars. If you’re into music, write about music. If you’re into banking and finance, well, you get the idea.
Note: you will have to learn how to write. You don’t need to be the best writer in the world, but it does pay to study a bit.
There are so many resources out there that you can mine in order to learn the basics of writing. Read up and then practice writing a lot.
The next step is to connect with an online community that shares your passions and interests. By connecting your blog to other blogs that are similar in nature, you’ll be able to have an immediate support community willing to help you share information on the net. You will also have access to their followers and have an increased possibility of gaining traffic to your site through that.
When you have amassed a certain amount of followers, that’s when you can incorporate ads into your site.
Google Adsense is one good example of an affiliate site that you can incorporate into your blog. Their ads are automated and adjust immediately to what your topics are about increasing the chances of people clicking on them and you earning a residual income from it.
You can also sell eBooks on your website by becoming an Amazon affiliate. Like Google Adsense, the residual income from a sale made from Amazon will help you earn enough over time.
Amazon not only sells books but other items as well. If your topics are directed in a manner that covers those other items as well, you are more than likely to get a sale through your Amazon ads too.
Another way to profit from your blog is to provide information and then sell eBooks that you have authored and published yourself.
If people see you as an authority on a certain subject matter, they are more than likely to seek for more information from you and buy your eBook. As you can see, people can earn simply from blogging. It does take time and effort but it will pay off in the end.
