How Do I Earn Passive Income?

Passive income is money that we earn from projects we’ve set up in the past. Something we have set in motion is still making us some money. There are many ways to earn passive income. Here are a few ways that a person can earn passive income.

* Use your website.

If you don’t have one, here are some reasons why you need one. A website is more than just a business beacon for whatever your products may be. While you are working hard to make money, let the website do some work.

Sign up for affiliate programs. Businesses with compatible products for sale, but not in direct competition, partner with other websites to get more traffic. Once the ads are placed, all that is required is to wait for the traffic.

One useful program is Google AdWords. The ads placed on your website will be compatible with the theme of your website. When people click on these ads you make money. If they actually take advantage of the offer, you stand to make even more.

* Discover your talents and skills.

They will lead to the ideas that can make you some money. Writing a book is a form of passive income. After the book is published, the revenue that comes is because of initial marketing of the book by yourself and the publisher. A popular book will have paperback rights and possibly movie rights.

* Invest in stocks and bonds.

With the unpredictability of the stock market, look for long-term investments. Over time stocks will drop, but they will also recover and can turn into a tidy sum over ten or more years.

As a self-employed individual, don’t neglect your own retirement fund. Stock dividends or other IRA so that you are earning money for a more secure future. After the fund is set up and the stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are chosen for investment, nothing else is left to do except to monitor the account.

* Write content.

Everyone wants good information and the Internet is often the first place that they look. Good content also needs a way for people to find it. Joining sites like Associated Content and others that pay for page views is considered passive income. Associated Content will offer upfront payments, but they have also instituted a performance payment that is based on the number of page views the articles receive.

To get your content noticed research popular keywords and use them in appropriate densities throughout the articles. Promote the content on your site and through friends and family. Now, wait for the traffic to do the rest. This content can make money for years to come if the topic is one that will stand the test of time.

There are a number of ways to make passive income. Don’t forget real estate when money allows. Check out the Internet for more ideas that can help you.

Why should i invest?

Prerequisite of the question, Where should I invest is! Why should I invest? Remember the days when you just got your first job – your father probably told you to open a recurring deposit account in a bank and make all your tax saving investments in provident funds. After all, who would give you assured returns with a capital guarantee? Those were words of wisdom, then, but not anymore. Times have changed and how!

Inflation is eating away your returns

Today, inflation is eating into your returns even as you sit here reading this. If your monthly expenses today are Rs 15,000 and annual inflation is at 5%, 20 years later, when you will probably retire, expect your monthly expenses to rise to at least Rs 39,000. Bank deposits will give you a return of 6%, but post inflation and tax; you will be left with a rate of return which runs into the negative. This means that while on paper your returns look a healthy 6%, your capital is actually eroding in the real world.
