earn money online using passive income ideas

You have heard all this crazy talk about earning money passively. Is there any truth to it? How can you earn money passively? Any thing that sounds that good can't be true. Well, it is, but don't fall for the hype online. Many people earn a passive income but it's not always as easy as overnight success. This article will discuss four passive income ideas that will liberate you financially.

Let's start with the first passive income idea: writing articles for eHow. Before you groan, give it a chance. You can create an article within thirty minutes and publish it. Have the eHow community review and comment your articles. If you do some keyword research, you'll be good to go. Keep in mind that you won't start making money right away, as it takes a few months for the articles to mature for the search engines. It could take you a good year or two to make good income with eHow, but it's worth it: what other job allows you to plant the seeds once, and then pluck the money off of it every month, without much work?!

My second passive income ideas is really similar to the first: creating seo-optimized articles for Info Barrel. Info Barrel is slowly gaining momentum and why put all your eggs in one basket? EHow has been doing article sweeps, meaning they can take your article(s) down without warning. I would hate to invest 100% of my articles into eHow and have them be taken down once I start earning passive money. The same ideas and principles apply to Info Barrel. Do your seo homework, write good articles, post them on Info Barrel, get comments on your articles, let them mature, and watch money trickle in.

My third passive income idea isn't quite as easy as the first two, but not as hard as it's made out to be: earning money through affiliate sales. Sign up with ClickBank, PayDotCom, or look up a product on google with these search terms "product affiliate program" or "product referral program". A lot of companies pay you if you direct a customer to their website and that customer ends up buying the product. There is a lot of hard work to be put in to accomplish this, but it's certainly not impossible. Many people make a great income using affiliate sales.

My last passive income idea is the one that will guarantee you the best way to earn passive income: creating your own product and selling it online. Why do this versus affiliate sales? Because with affiliate sales, you only earn a percentage of the sale profit; with your own product, you keep a 100% of the charged amount. Again, start by experimenting with keywords at Google Keyword Tools website.

This article should hopefully give you some avenues to experiment with to earn some passive income. With a bit of experimentation, a fair amount of hard work, and a tiny amount of luck, you can also earn passive income. Reading is one thing, but acting on your passive income ideas is another--don't forget to take action!

Great info. I liked the idea of EHow but then you said they are sweeping articles. Do you still think it would be worth joining?

First, thanks for the comment :) I joined eHow about three weeks ago. There are definite benefits if you write for eHow. I've seen my articles rank pretty quickly.

As I mentioned, I've noticed a couple of bugs and now of these "sweepings". I think as long as you keep a copy of your article on your computer, there's no real harm. After all, if they do delete your article, you'll have a copy of it and you can post it anywhere else.
