Passive income from online business

Discussion in 'General Business' started by Iwind, Feb 21, 2010.

    I make pretty decent income with adsense income these days from blog/article type websites, and I can use these sites for selling affiliate products/other ad types, but it would be nice to start building some passive income in other areas of online business as well.
    SEMrush
    Are there any good alternatives? I'm looking for something that I don't have to micro manage every single day, work for a few weeks and take a few weeks off type of thing and still make money. I use VAs quite often for my sites now, and have money to invest in software/whatever, so that is not an issue.

    You should look in to CPA marketing. For me they make more money then PPC.

    What type of websites would I develop for CPA marketing? I would need to be able to earn way more than $25 daily to be interested in looking into it, but just as with PPC there is probably no limit.

    I think it would be difficult to "work for two weeks, and then take a few weeks off" in affiliate marketing. Typically, those guys have to literally keep their thumb on the trigger all times.

    A membership site will give you some freedom, where sales do not drop off the cliff with a week or two of neglect (see tutorials in sig). But even those you are going to have to spend some time on.

    I guess the definition of 'passive income' is different to everyone. However, affiliate marketing, to do it well anyway, requires more oversight IMHO that some of the other things available out there.

    Creating iphone or mobile apps seems to be the future if you are serious about your money. Of course you need at least 500-1000 bucks to put into it. Even companies that will create the app for you will cost around 500.

    Passive income is definitely a goal of mine, but I'll have to keep doing more research just like everyone else.

    Another model of a truly passive income generating business can be photography. Yes, take high quality photos and upload them to stock sites like iStockphoto or ShutterStock. You simply set up the keywords, and that's it, sit back and relax, while money start rolling. Of course, you need to be good at photography, and a pro camera to take photos with.

    If you want income but don't want to work much for it...then I suggest just investing your money in a Money Market Account, CD, CEF or another investment option. Then you can literally sit around and make money.

    If you don't have the experience, passion and dedication it takes to build a solid online business....the 'passive income' you make will be pennies compared to other alternatives.

    Maybe you should try partaking in paid survey.

    Do many people earn much money with these websites? It seems there are millions of photographs on them - that's a lot of competition. It would be a nice way to combine your hobby with earning some money though.

    I dont know you guys, but I feel like the guy above is a bot. Besides that you are using a free domain. IF you are able to have a nice passive income, why not bothering on getting your own domain?

    Certainly it's good idea but i doubt it, if we get many buyers who will pay for our art.
