Top 5 Proven Ways to Make Passive Income from Your Computer
Hi there Deadbeat, in this post today I have got you covered with 5 ways to create passive income streams online perfect for every beginner. The first way we’re going to talk about is Article Writing, one of the oldest way to begin making passive income online.
#1 Article Writing:
Here’s how to begin; I’m going to give you a very good list of sites where you can begin providing them with content in exchange for money. You can also decide how you’d like to be paid!
There are sites where you can “revenue share” and sites where you just get paid normally after submission and approval of your articles.
Hubpages – Begin earning ongoing revenue share for publishing “hubs” thru either Amazon, Adsense.
Liberal America – A political writing site, you’d earn 75% of Adsense revenue for your articles.
Unanchor – A travel itineraries writing site, you’d receive 75% revenue share for your submitted articles.
News for Shoppers – News for Shoppers – a consumer product writing site, for your article about products, stores etc you’ll receive a 70% Adsense revenue share.
Problogger – if you want to see good listings of writing gigs you can apply for, without having a paid membership to a site, then I’d recommend problogger. It’s a solid job board that’s regularly updated.
Contena – is a really super resource for finding companies looking for written content though it’s a fee-based membership.
Hire Writers – You can get paid $20 per article submitted and accepted once you become a member on their site.
A List Apart – This site pays between $50 – $200 for top quality write-ups. Check it out!
Great Content – This company is out on the look-out for great content writers for their clients, they pay once you earned $25plus.
There are tons of places online to find writing gigs, but you have a head-start if you begin with all those sites I have mentioned above.
#2 Self Publish Amazon Kindle Ebooks:
This is a really good way to create a passive income from writing 30-100 pages of the experiences you’ve had like backpacking in China or dating exotic Russian women!
Kindle publishing gives you instant access via computers, tablets, smart-phones, e readers and apps to over 500 Million red-hot buyers. In 7 days or more you can create a good fiction book, then you’ll need a nicely designed cover – you can hire someone on Fiverr to do that.
Or you can use Amazon free cover making tool if you have an image you want to use already. Then you can publish your ebook, you want to price it at say $1.99 – $3.99 depending on how many pages it is.
Also if you really want to see some sales, I cannot stress the importance of doing marketing, you could tweet it, share it on Facebook. Don’t expect to make thousands of dollars off of it but perhaps a couple hundred per month on the regular.
Like I said you don’t necessarily need to be Shakespeare, you’re writing about fun experiences or sad ones you’ve had – so I recommend putting up an ebook on the Amazon Kindle Marketplace.
#3 Youtube Videos:
This is a really big one because YouTube is ranked 3rd Position in the world when it comes to the general public favorite website.
So if you put out a video on just anything seemingly interesting – it’s bound to be picked up by loads of people. Now here’s what you need to do if you have limited budget and an IPhone:
Go to clickbank.com and find yourself a good diet product:
Usually it’s not a good idea to go with the popular CB products because they are seen all over the place. You need to find those low key, low rising, just released CB products that almost no one promotes, it does convert way better with YouTube.
Now be aware, not all of them are high quality, so you still have to inspect the offer and its sales page. Be sure to read the sales page or watch the sales video to see if you PERSONALLY would love to purchase this product.
Put yourself in the shoes of your intended viewer and see if you are persuaded to purchase the product in question. Now that you’ve selected the product, it’s time to make video! You could do a talking head video reviewing the product or go to Product’s sale page and download the video from there if there’s one there.
Most of the product, i.e. approximately 80% of the products have their own videos on their sale page. So you would have to download the video and then you can upload it to your YouTube channel. Voila!
You now have a video that’s going to make you money – be sure to set things up so the viewers are redirected from your video to your landing page where you’ve added your affiliate link.
#4 Affiliate Marketing:
Affiliate marketing is what I actually recommend for any beginner starting out as it gives you more leverage than just writing articles for someone else. It’s a property which will continue to earn passive income for you for months to come.
Here are the steps required to set up an affiliate marketing blog –
Step 1. Find a good niche and a good product to promote: there are lots of places to find products across all niches like Clickbank, Clicksure, Jvzoo and Clickbetter, Amazon – also when selecting a product, make sure it has high Gravity.
Gravity measures how popular a product is with affiliates. It is also loosely related to how well a product sells. It’s calculated based on the number of affiliates who have made a sale on that product recently. A high gravity score means that many affiliates have sold that product recently. A low score means that not many affiliates have sold that product recently.
When you’ve selected a good product, you’re in the right maket.
Step 2. Find a keyword to market the product with: And THAT will be our targeted keyword – the product name. There is an awesome advantage when you promote the products from Clickbank.
However, after an in-depth research of the traffic to my affiliate sites in the past years. I’ve found out that these people not only look for the product name itself, but also for several other keywords in combination with the product name which you definitely need to consider targeting as well.
Here are the most searched keywords combined with the product name:
“Product Name” Bonus
“Product Name” Review
“Product Name” Scam
“Product Name” Does it Work
“Product Name” Book
“Product Name” Download
Buy “Product Name”
and much more…you are to combine these keywords above with the product name and begin putting it on a landing page for your on page SEO.
Step 3. Put it all together, publish it to your website: just set up a review page targeting those keywords above then the traffic would begin to trickle in.
Step 4. Generate traffic and start earning cash: Well this part needs little or no explaining.
#5 Creating your own products
Having a product is the highest level in internet marketing, if a product is good and well marketed – it can exponentially increase your income, you could even quit your day job and go full time online.
The best place to begin for a beginner with aspirations to create a product would be possibly a PDF/Video product on ClickBank.
If you have an e-book or video course in a popular market that solves a problem – ClickBank makes that easy to sell.
Once you sign up as a vendor and list your product on the marketplace then set the commission cut you are willing to pay to anyone who chooses to promote your product for you, other ClickBank users will start promoting it. This will drive traffic to your product’s sales page and sales will start to trickle in.
Also you can begin promoting your products yourself just like I explained in #4 …
