I give you 10 ways to earn passive income. I’m currently doing it in 5 of the ways, and plan to experiment with the rest over the next few years. Here they are:
Teach Online Courses:
Many of you know that I have a number of online courses that I sell on sites such as Udemy.com, Skillfeed.com, or Skillshare.com. I began in October 2012, and it has been my most successful form of earning passive income. I’ve made tens of thousands of dollars from selling courses. This money has helped pay for a car in cash, go on vacation to the Philippines, pay down student loans, buy an engagement ring, have a wedding, and lots more!
Sell eBooks on Amazon:
I started selling two eBooks on Amazon in October, 2014. One is about Teaching Online courses, and the other is about starting a Freelance Business. Since launching, they continue to sell about 5 copies per day. Averaging an extra $100 per month is amazing!
Start a YouTube channel:
A while back, YouTube started allowing anyone to become a partner and put ads on their videos. I know that you hate having to watch ads on YouTube, but on the other side of those ads is a creator who is trying to make a little bit of extra income through their hard work. I have two channels that bring in some extra dough each month – my Video School Online channel & my Cat Video channel. The cat channel video is making about $6 a month. It’s not a huge amount, but it does pay for a new toy or treat for our dear Zorah each month!

Become an Affiliate:
If you have a website that contains useful information to viewers, you can put affiliate ads on the site. When someone clicks on those links and purchases something, you make a little bit of information. For example, on my resources page, I share some of my favorite resources including ThemeForest (where I purchase web themes from). I love sharing their website because I truly believe in them, and use them. It also helps the viewer out who is wanting to build their own website. And I get a few bucks when someone clicks through that link and buys something. You can become an Affiliate for most websites. Just scroll to the bottom of the website, and in the footer is usually a link for ‘affiliates’ or ‘partners.’
Investing for Retirement:
From a young age, I have always been smart about money. I remember being a teenager and keeping money in an Etrade account and investing in General Electric. This was my first retirement account. Now, I try to put away any extra money (mostly money made passively from the above methods) into retirement accounts and other investment accounts. Now, I’m not a financial advisor, so take everything I say with a grain of salt. But I think it’s really important to start saving now (or as early as possible). If you’re not already saving, it’s too late. Why is this passive income? Investing is literally the easiest way to make passive income. On average, the markets have increased about 7% since the beginning of the stock market. So each year, you can average about 7% returns. Adjusting for inflation, this may be closer to growing your money 3-5%. So if you have $100,000 in savings, you make an extra $7,000 per year. But you don’t have to start there. Start with $100. You’ll make about $7 on an average year. And grow from there.
