Blogging. Building a blog is the best ideal passive income idea to implement and start earning money.It is very easy and very cheap.You only need about $3/month to start this business.The more people you get to come to your website, the higher the potential for those visitors to click on an ad and buy something.This usually comes in the form of either direct advertising or some type of affiliate marketing. Basically to be successful as a blogger, you need to find something interesting to write about, draw an audience, and then keep it coming.If you are interested in starting a blog,check out our how do you make a blog Affiliate Marketing Sometimes bloggers and website promote certain products and get a percentage of the cut if a product or service gets sold. This can be done either on your blog or through the use of a niche site. Of all the passive income ideas, this is one is truly “passive” because as people click on your ads, you don’t have to do anything at all.Affiliate brokers include Google Adsense, Amazon Affiliates, Commission Junction, Flex Offers, Click Bank, etc) and they allow you pick from thousands of different products in your particular niche. Email Marketing This is when you use your list of blog subscribers to promote a certain product. Lots of successful bloggers swear by this process because they claim that your website subscribers are a “target audience” for your niche; thereby increasing the chances of more purchases. Niche Websites If blogging sounds too time intensive, then why not make a smaller one focused on one particular topic. These types of websites are called niche sites. This very website is example of a niche site: It is focused primarily on the topic of discussing passive income ideas. A niche website may be as small as 5 pages (also called a micro-niche site) or as big as 100 pages. It all depends on how much work the creator wants to put into


it. Webmasters make money from niche sites either through the advertising or by selling them at auction websites like Flippa. The really successful ones take it to the extreme and create a portfolio of niche sites. Think about it: If you had 10 sites each bringing in an average of $500 per month, that would be $5,000 of passive income. Website Services Anyone who starts a website can tell you how frustrating it is in the beginning; especially for the technically challenged. There’s all kinds of setup, programming, and small tricks to know if you want things to look right. The good news is that people are willing to pay for someone else to deal with that nonsense, and that someone could be you! If you have any talent at anything related to website creation such as search engine optimization (SEO), post writing, creating graphics, creating website themes, programming, etc, then you could sell your services to those in need. Graphic Design. Businesses always need graphic designers to help them convey information visually, through logos, advertisements, posters, websites, and the like. While it is possible to be an entirely self-taught graphic designer, most have either a certification or a degree. Other than the cost of design software, this business has very little overhead and can be done anywhere with a dedicated computer. Paid Surveys What could be easier than clicking a few boxes regarding your opinion about something? Marketing companies are always after this kind of info and with the accessibility of the Internet they are willing to offer you cash and prizes to get it. Most surveys are short and only take less than 5 minutes to complete. You won’t make millions of dollars, but it is a simple way to earn a few bucks here and there. To get started

Dividend Stock Investing.


What’s better than a stock that goes up in value? How about one that pays you along the way. That’s the idea behind dividend stock investing: Picking stocks that not only have a high potential to show growth (capital gains) but will also pay you a handsome cut of the company earnings every quarter (the dividend payment). If you can manage to collect enough shares of these high quality stocks, then you could set yourself up to receive thousands of dollars in annual income for doing nothing more than being a shareholder (now that’s passive income!) Copywriting. These writers put together promotional materials for businesses, including ads, websites, newsletters, commercials, direct mailings, and many others. Copywriters generally have a degree in advertising, marketing, English, or communication, but any excellent writer can do a great job copywriting. Marketing Consultant. Whether you are helping a business with traditional marketing materials or instructing them on the fine art of blogging (ahem) and social media, this is a business that has almost unlimited potential for freelancers. Editing. Like copywriting, this is a freelancing gig where it’s helpful to have a background in English or communications—but any eagle-eyed writer could do great job. Translation. If you know a second (or third) language, you can make a living at home translating documents. It’s a global marketplace, and even the best translation software can’t understand linguistic nuance. Video Production.


Everyone wants a piece of YouTube, so talented freelancers can make a great living producing videos for companies and organizations. Rates vary by area, equipment, and background. Internet Security Consulting. If you’re tech savvy and understand the ins and outs of internet security, consider becoming a consultant for small businesses. Unlike the big boys, these companies can’t afford the huge security budgets, but they still want to be able to protect their internet customers. Green Consulting. Many smaller companies would like to find ways to make their processes greener without spending more green. You can help them to figure out ways to improve their carbon footprint without sacrificing the bottom line. Call Center Representative. Believe it or not, it is possible to actually reach a woman named Peggy (and not a man with a Russian accent) when you call customer service. That’s because of the homeshore movement, which is trying to hire more independent contractors to work from home on customer service issues. If you’ve got a phone line and an internet connection, you can work from home as a call center rep. Median salary: $30,460. Sell E-books online. Publishing is dead; long live the e-reader! Now that anyone can have their work epublished, it is possible for anyone to make a fortune off their writing. If you love to write and are willing to do your own promotion (and having a blog can really help in that case), writing an e-book is an excellent way to make money at home. Sewing.


Whether you’re making onesies and quilts for sale online or at local markets or doing repairs and alterations for locals with ill-fitting clothes, your sewing machine could be your ticket to a work-from-home business. Personal Organizer. If you’re someone who reorganizes closets for fun, offer up your services to harried and disorganized individuals and businesses. Home Staging. If rearranging furniture is your idea of fun, home staging is a great home-based business. You will help sellers get their homes looking beautiful so they sell as quickly as possible. Mystery Shopping. For many people, the idea of getting paid to shop is a dream come true. There are many mystery shopping scams to beware of, however. Never accept a gig that requires an upfront fee—that’s a good sign it’s not legit. According to the website.Scambusters, legitimate mystery shopping can pay anywhere from $8 per job up to $50 to $100 per job. Bargain Hunting. If you love a bargain and know how to make coupons, specials, and unadvertised deals your penny-pinching bitch, then you could help others learn how to save money—and turn a profit. The Grocery Game’s Teri Gault is the most famous at-home bargain hunter turned millionaire, but you could be next. Personal Stylist. You have an eye for clothes and know what styles look best on what body types. So turn your passion for fashion into a business by becoming a personal stylist/shopper. You’ll feel good about making others look great.


Catering. If you love to cook on a grand scale, why not start a catering business out of your home? How much you make depends on the scale of the assignments you take, and your ability to correctly decide how much your materials will cost. But this is also an industry where you can start small and work you way up to bigger gigs—and profits. App Designer. Creating a profitable app for smart phones isn’t necessarily about having the best or most innovative idea but it’s about creating the best user experience for that idea. That’s how app designers are able to make their work-from-home a full time job—and then just enjoy the passive income. Off-Hours Daycare. Finding someone to regularly watch children during off-hours, like second shift, weekends, or very early mornings, can be extremely difficult for parents. Offering care during off-peak hours means that you can command a higher fee. Elder Care. In most cases, work-from-home elder care workers will make daily house calls to their patients to help with anything from meal preparation to self-care to minor home repairs. Pet Sitter. If you can find pet owners who are willing to bring their dogs and cats to you, this is truly a home-based business. Otherwise, you’ll need to be willing to live at other houses (or at least visit 3-4 times a day) while you’re working. Pet Grooming.


Most pet owners don’t quite have the stomach or the time to clip nails, bathe, or give haircuts to their animals. With a couple of small tweaks to a bathroom, basement, or laundry room, you could have a full service doggy salon in your home. Travel Planning. Planning a more elaborate trip might be too much for some travelers. This is where a travel planner comes in, using his skills to find the best trip—including flight, accommodation, rental car, and tours—for the budget. Party Planning. From weddings to birthday parties to corporate events to conferences, the details of putting on a huge bash can be beyond the average party-giver. That’s why they’ll turn all the planning over to you. Digital Media Conversion. It’s time consuming to convert old school media like CDs into digital files. If you have excellent tech skills, this is a service you can offer to the tech-phobic and time-crunched alike. Tutoring. A background in education is helpful for tutoring. All you really need are mad skills in one or more academic area, and you can help local students do better in their classes.

Patient Advocacy. With the byzantine complexity of modern medical billing practices, there is a definite need for patient advocates. These individuals take the time to track down hospital billing paperwork and potentially argue with insurance companies.Many of those who need to hire advocates are either ailing or grieving, this is a very necessary service.


Personal Trainer. You love to work out and you know the ins and outs of nutrition and exercise. Share your passion with novice exercisers, either out of your home or through a local gym. Online Store. Sell anything to anyone anywhere in the world. Whether you’re marketing the organic honey from your backyard apiary, or selling personalized linens that you embroider yourself, you can find a market for your products online. eBay Sales. Millions of vendors sell their wares on the online auction house. If you can find an inexpensive source for (legally!) saleable merchandise, you can get into business. Get Paid for Social Media. Some Twitter users are able to leverage their huge following into a paid gig for advertisers. Prolific bloggers have been known to get paid for commenting on other blogs. If you are a social media expert, you can use that expertise to earn money. People want to reach your audience and are willing to pay you for it.
