    Etsy stores have an option where you can let the customer buy a print and download it directly from the site. This helps you earn passive income because you aren’t packing, shipping, or doing anything where you waste time.

    Earning passive income online where you can sit in bed or on a beach somewhere in the world I think is everyone’s dream. Notice all of these strategies that you listed don’t come easy. They all require a substantial amount of work, but man is it sure worth it in the end. In this article you don’t “sugarcoat” anything and you are honest.
    Great read, my friend and I hope you have a lifetime full of success in your future.

      Anything worthwhile isn’t easy, especially if you want to setup a stream of income that will last you for years to come. But you’re absolutely right, put in the work now and it will pay off for years to come.

    25 real ideas for legit online income. You have done a great job by writing this informative article. I’m already in affiliate marketing and from my own experience I can say it 100 percent genuine. Apart from this, I would like to go for e-book writing and publishing. I know that, if I can produce one informative e-book then definitely I’ll earn passive income.
    Anyway, thanks a lot for your great article.

    Hi there Steve,

    Thank you kindly for creating and sharing those 25 awesome idea for generating a passsive income, it is absolutely appreciated. thanks.

    I am quite surprised that you did not mention cryptocurrency investing and trading or one of my fave and time tested centuries old way of earning a pssive income. Dividend paying shares.

    With input from readers, I can see this list growing.

      Generating passive income through crypto is definitely on my radar. The entire market is much too volatile at the moment for me to recommend it. I’m definitely keeping my eye on it though.

  • Chris

    There are really so many great ways to make money online and you have covered most of the popular passive income ideas.

    For me the problem is trying to decide because there are a few that I would like try from your list.

    Do you have any suggestions as to which has the greatest potential to work from home and get started reasonably?

    • Steve Razinski

      By far, affiliate marketing is my go-to recommendation for starting a passive business. Once you get a website up and running, it works for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and has the potential to bring in income for years down the road.

    Thanks Steve, this is a wonderful and comprehensive list. It’s awesome how technology and the Internet have enabled so much possibility.

    Another alternative that really has made a big splash this year in 2018 is passive income generated by investing into the Cryptocurrency space. I know it can has its own volatility but just like the Stock Market, if you do your homework, you can find very safe and stable options. One such option, is well positioned in the Cryptocurrency space and is the goto platform/service for the Cryptocurrency space called GIN coin. You’ve heard of turn-key houses in real estate, well Gin coin is the equivalent in the Cryptocurrency space. You also gain the passive income/growth from investing in the Gin coin platform itself (so you’re essentially double dipping). Blockchain technology is not going away and will be the wave of the future so don’t miss out.

    I enjoyed your post and see there is value packed inside of the 25 passive income ideas.

    My question for you, have you tried many different combinations of these to really see the most potential profit?

    I recently came across a website that covered every price point within one niche. Give away for the ebook, add people as a subscriber to email.

    Then market one or two courses with beginner, intermediate, and advanced. After that, for those still not satisfied you could make premium courses that utilize coaching, webinars, podcasts and so on.

    Hi Steve, great article!

    I’m all new to the online marketing business, but I would really like to learn to be more time and place independent regarding my work. There’s so much to explore in the realm of online business.

    All new ideas for me were the option of buying an existing blog. Sure thing, why not – it’s like any other business if you look at it that way.

    Dropshipping sounds interesting too. Do you have some examples of successful businesses who do this?

  • Laura

    Hi Steve – Great article full of really good ideas. Passive Income streams is where it is at. What would you say are your personal top #5 to try? I am a bit late to the YouTube game but it is something I am now exploring. Along with online courses. Have not had a lot of luck with the Affiliate Marketing path. I may have to try some other areas after getting inspired. Laura

    Such an amazing article. I am a You Tuber and new in the field of blogging. I really like the way you explained things to us. I learned a lot just by reading your Post. It will be very useful for me. There’s so much to learn in order to be successful and it is so amazing that there are so many learning materials and tips out there such as this article.
    Thanks for sharing such insights. Great Work. Much appreciated. Keep it up.

    Steve, Coming from such an individual as you are who has been able to attain such a high level of success with running an online business, this article I found to be a treasure trove of ideas to readers who seriously want to earn passive income for themselves.

    Being a member of WA now for just over 3 years, it’s been in the back of my mind as I develop my business through the program to also get involved with other means of getting revenue for myself.

    You did mention one that I particularly liked, drop shipping. I have done reviews on a handful of companies that are in this type of business and your mention of Shopify especially. Through my own prior research, I believe that Shopify is one perhaps the most ethical and legit online companies that are dedicated to drop shipping. I just might dip my toes into trying to build some passive income for myself through another stream in addition to WA by taking a closer look myself at Shopify.

    While I probably will not pursue it, the idea that you also mentioned involving the creation of a lead generation business was excellent for the simple fact that being exposed to them myself prior to joining WA that involved a previous attempt on my part to create income online, I was exposed to a handful of these types of companies that were 100% fraudulent. I lost a lot of money with those scam programs.

    Instead with a person creating a completely legit lead generation company there would be no underestimating what a good service that he/she would be providing to people who seek to acquire them for their personal businesses.

    I really like that last one you have! (*kidding*)

    What amazed me is that, you can actually make money out of somebody else’s music. That’s really a WOW to me! I never thought about that, and it is only you here that explained or shared about that thing. Maybe I would consider doing that later as I really love music. I’m a music minded person!
