Hi Logan, thanks for perfect article on passive income theme! I am a newbie in this passive income thing but everything I read here seems obvious to me. Why not create a passive income, right? So I started googling about making passive income via internet because I like things connected to the web and I think that this will be a huge thing (it already is) and I found this article which seems that is probably very new but in the ebook there are great informations about passive income, at least in my POV (newbie POV). Is this a legit website or can it actually work? I want to expand on that because my 9 – 5 s*cks… Here is the URL: https://cashwithoutjob.online
SkimLinks works very similarly to VigLinks in that it is designed for bloggers who don’t want to do a lot of hands-on work to participate in an affiliate program. SkimLinks also works much like VigLinks in that it uses a plugin or script to create dynamic links in your content to send visitors to higher paying offers from merchants. SkimLinks claims to work with over 24,000 merchants/advertisers.
Affiliate networks offer you access to multiple (and by multiple, we mean hundreds if not thousands) of individual affiliate programs. They basically work by simplifying the signup process - instead of applying to become an affiliate for a each product you want to promote, you simply apply to join the network and instantly have access to hundreds of different affiliate offers.
CPA marketing programs pay affiliates when a specific action is taken by the referral or lead. Common actions include clicks, impressions, form submits, sign-ups, registrations, or opt-ins. Since Cost-Per-Action models don’t necessarily involve a direct sale (and involve more risk taking) the payout percentages are far smaller than they are in Cost-Per-Sale.

Starting an online business is exciting. The thrill of clicking conversions coming straight into your inbox. Uh, until that doesn’t happen. Which you may have already discovered as your bubble burst. The thing is, most websites only experience a conversion rate of 3%, that’s if they even convert at all. And the rest of the 97% of traffic is wasted together with the painful ad spend.
According to Uncle Sam, you need to be "materially involved" in an enterprise to earn active income. With passive income, it's just the opposite, as the IRS deems you to be earning passive income if you're not materially involved with a profit-making enterprise. By and large, expect income to be taxable if you are engaged in a passive income enterprise. You will need to report earnings to the IRS.

As mentioned above, know-how and expertise are factors that shouldn’t be underestimated (in addition to time) – since accounts and profiles should be set up and managed by professionals and not left for the interns to take care of. You have to train employees, explain the most important online marketing principles, and bring in expertise knowledge from external services, if needed.

What is refer-a-friend? Essentially, you make money for using a service and telling others how great it is. Most of the times, you’ll get a unique link that you can share with friends directly or throughout social media. Whenever anybody clicks your link and signs up and/or makes a purchase, you’ll get a bonus. The bonus can be in the form of cold hard cash or an account credit.
Once you have your own strategy, you should let other departments in the company know so that they can coordinate their actions with yours. If you want to create a successful marketing mix, you need to stop seeing each approach as an isolated case. If you consider channels as independent disciplines, without thinking about the marketing mix, then you could face some problems. For example, you could end up circulating duplicate content or, even worse, distributing content on different channels that contradicts each other.

Service Contracts. It is sometimes possible to earn residuals for products or services with pay-as-you-go contracts, such as home security services. If a client signs a contract to have his or her home monitored for a monthly fee, the salesperson can receive a residual payment each month the client pays for this service. Furthermore, agreements often pay monthly residuals to sales employees. For example, alarm companies selling ongoing home or business monitoring for a monthly fee may offer residual income to those who sell this service.
However, passive income has one big advantage: Once that work is done, the money continues to come in, with no additional effort on your part. This means that if you spend enough time during your working years setting up streams of passive income, you’ll eventually reach a point where you can collect enough to get by with little or no extra effort. And until then, you can enjoy the extra cash.
WOW! What an amazing and easy to understand source of information! I am so excited! I’ve wanted to join Ezine Directory for the last few months but can’t come up with the membership. Am more determined than ever, after listening to this info, to get involved with you, Charlie, to finally break through the wall I’ve been beating my head against for the last year. Thank you for your slow, easy to understand wisdom. I devour your emails and look forward to becoming a member soon.
Great post Perrin! I think one of the biggest problems that rarely gets talked about are the nexus laws that restrict certain states from being accepted into an affiliate program. Currently, those states are Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia.
Generally, successful subscription sites offer lots of in-depth content, such as useful articles, web-based seminars, live Q&A sessions, audio downloads, and member forums. For instance, a membership site might take an existing e-book, break it up into 12 chapters, create an audio recording to go with each chapter, add live interview footage from the author’s research, and turn it each chapter into a single session of a year-long course.

Though it can take a while to build up enough cash to put a 20% down payment on an investment property (the typical lender minimum), they can snowball fairly quickly. The key here is to correctly project income and expenses in order to calculate cash flow (the free cash you can put in your pocket after all associated property expenses have been paid). However you have to be sure to include the cost of a property manager in your calculations unless you want to manage the property yourself. Even with a property manager, you may be required to make large repair decisions every now and then – so while this is not a 100% passive activity, you are not directly trading your time for money like traditional employment.

AWIN is probably best for experienced affiliates who can hit the ground running without a lot of guidance or feedback from the network. There is a $5 fee charged to apply to become an affiliate, but if you’re approved, the $5 will be added to your account. If your application is denied, however, you will lose the $5 fee. AWIN operates globally, but it is most heavily concentrated on British and EU merchants.


This is Simon, thank you for your post, it is very helpful for me. However, we are a lighting company, and we are plan to try the Affiliate Website to increase our sale. But it seem that there are many different Affiliate website to be chose and some of them also need pay some fee to begin, so as we just begin to do this, which website is your recommend ?
Once you have a finished work, your still need to find a channel to sell it. The old-fashioned way to do this, and one that still offers the best chance for finding a wide audience, is to hire an agent and peddle your work to publishers. However, finding a publisher willing to take your work is a chancy business. You have to be prepared to face one rejection after another, possibly for years – along with the possibility that you might never find a publisher at all.
Thank You for the great info, one question I have is how do you incorporate affiliate links with PPC, build a completely new affiliate site per product I promote then drive traffic to that and then hope that the mini site converts or is there another way? Nice blog btw I like the font, layout, and very organized. Will join the DOE soon just gotta set aside a budget first its not just your site and the membership fee’s of like 200 but the cost of solo’s itself. BTW If you could, could you please tell me how DOE works after membership, is it like 20 cents per click or a ball park price per solo, etc..? Thanx Charlie
There is a specific tax definition of passive income, known as “passive activity” to the Internal Revenue Service. Passive income is any income you make without actively working or are materially involved. The IRS defines it as any rental activity or any business in which the taxpayer does not “materially participate.” Nonpassive activities, or active activities, are businesses in which the taxpayer works on a regular, continuous, and substantial basis.
A subscription site can be a more reliable source of income than ad sales, because your subscribers pay you up front at the start of each month. However, to get people to pay for your site, you have to give them something that’s worth the money. Examples include subscription sites such as Blog Mastermind, which promises to teach people how to make money online through blogging. People are willing to pay for these sites because they’re run by successful experts.
Anyone can be an affiliate, that’s why it’s one of the most popular ways of earning a passive income online. Amazon Associates offers up to 12% advertising fees, while Shopify pays up to $2,000 for new merchant referrals. But partnering with these big players isn’t the only way to capitalize on affiliate marketing. For example, blogger Caitlyn Pyle has shown how she earned $14,063 in six days from just one affiliate product. When executed to perfection, affiliate marketing can be incredibly valuable to the reader and immensely profitable to the affiliate.

While there may be many ways to promote products nowadays, nothing beats classic word-of-mouth advertising. This is why ReferralCandy, one of the top 20 affiliate marketing software solutions, was created. An eCommerce store plugin, it lets you turn customers into advocates by rewarding them for telling their friends about your products. Marketed to small and large companies, this platform lets entrepreneurs provide incentives for referrals in various forms, such as cash, store credit, discounts, or free products. You can take a 30-day risk-free trial to see if ReferralCandy is a perfect fit for your company’s needs. Subscriptions start at $49 to $3999 a month, with the latter billed annually. In addition, they charge monthly commissions on top of their base fee that increasingly lowers as you reach referral revenue milestones.
However, once affiliates know the damages that they inflict on those who buy WA after reading one of those fake reviews, it falls on them (cost of product, lost time, pain and suffering of failing to reach significant goals). Worse, WA’s Terms of Service puts all the legal weight on them, whereby they indemnify the company (for following the process, basically!)
For you to become an affiliate marketer here, you do not need to purchase them or seek permission to become an affiliate. All you need is to click the promote button, and you will have a platform to create your account. From here, you will receive an affiliate link that allows you to advertise anywhere. Once a person has clicked on the link you have provided and make a purchase, you will automatically get a commission for that sale.

An Earlier Retirement. If you can earn enough passive income – from one stream or, better yet, from several – it can replace your paycheck altogether, making you financially independent. This would give you the option of retiring early, or perhaps quitting your current job and taking up a new career that interests you. Making this much money solely from passive income doesn’t happen for most people, and it doesn’t happen overnight – but it is possible.
“ShareASale is solid. Been using them since 2013. Biggest problems with them is the interface is a little dated / wonky. It’s also difficult to deal directly with the advertisers. You think you’re speaking to an advertiser rep, but it’s really just someone from SAS. You have to use a special (hard to find) contact form to contact the advertiser….and it’s rare you get a direct response from them.”

Real-Time Analytics. Discovering, compiling, and interpreting data is difficult. It is even more taxing when you need to keep tabs on multiple clicks at a time. To lighten your load, Afftrack has a real-time analytics feature that guarantees 99.999% uptime, reliability, and scalability. This way, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and watch your business as it grows.


CouchSurfing has an online shop stocked with a wide range of branded products, such as t-shirts, mugs, calendars, notebooks, and similar type of merchandise. It’s an effective solution, but not the only one that exists. If you’ve succeeded in building an online following, on any online platform, focus on applying the most suitable online community monetization strategies to start earning a passive income from the hard work you’ve already done. Grab this guide to online community monetization for top-class ideas.
Probably the easiest way to do this is to set up an account with a pay-per-click advertising service, such as Google AdSense. This service searches your site for keywords, then selects appropriate ads and displays them on your page. Each time a user clicks on one of these ads, you get a small fee – anywhere from a few cents to a few dollars – added to your account. When the total in your account reaches a certain minimum, such as $100, the money is automatically transferred to you.
Shopify is probably the most popular e-commerce solutions provider out there, but because there are so many products and options, newcomers can easily get confused. If you believe your audience has products to sell and could benefit from Shopify’s products and are able to elucidate the benefits of signing up for Shopify, you can definitely earn some big money with their affiliate program.

The “Fulfilled by Amazon” program is another really popular passive income idea that’s being promoted a lot in 2017. Basically, you create a physical product (or buy one in bulk from China) and have it shipped directly to Amazon. Amazon then lists it on their website, sell it and deliver it. They obviously take a decent cut but they’re doing most of the intensive work.
