What You Need To Know To Generate A Passive Income As A Marketer

Passive income could be a great way for you to supplement your income without actively working for it. You just need to find a way that works for you. It can take time to develop your passive income source, but when you have, you can sit back and watch the money grow. 


Starting a blog might be the best way for you to generate a passive income. You need to think about what you have knowledge on, and write your content. It needs to be accurate, readable, and useful. Once you have your blog up and running, you can use it as well as other passive income ideas like online ads, or affiliate marketing in conjunction with your blog. If this passive income method suits you, you still need to be sure that your site has been optimized for search engines. Look at things like mobile responsiveness, image quality, logo design, and branding

Online Ads

Online advertising can help you monetize your blog or website. You can use something like Google AdSense to help you get started. This platform has many different benefits such as dynamic ads, and customization on ads. 


E-books are another source of passive income. Create an e-book, and publish it somewhere like Amazon. There are a few things to keep in mind if you decide to write an e-book. Firstly, it needs to be of high quality. It also needs to be interesting and compelling. If your e-book is designed to attract more traffic to your blog, then it also needs to offer more than your blog. It needs to have more information, or be more entertaining. There needs to be a reason why someone would purchase the e-book, rather than just browsing your blog. 


Videos are a hugely growing trend, and so many different businesses have a YouTube channel for promotion. It can also be used to generate a passive income from ads. All you need to do is make sure that your channel meets the requirements, and YouTube will let you generate a passive income from your videos. You do still need to be sure that your videos are entertaining and engaging, because your income will be based on views. 

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is when you use your website to promote another company’s products or services. There are many different companies that have affiliate programs, and many platforms that can match your site to an appropriate business. You do need to be sure that your affiliate recommendations fit in with the content of your site, and most platforms will also look at the amount of traffic your site gets. 

Image Creation

Images are incredibly important for websites, and businesses. If you have any skills with a camera you can use your images to create a portfolio of stock images. You can also try creating graphics, logos, and visuals. Use all your talents for your portfolio. You can sell your images and designs using a stock image platform. 

Buy A Blog

Buying a blog is a little different from starting a blog. When you buy a blog, you’re purchasing an already established, successful blog. The downside of blogging this way is that you need to be sure that you maintain whatever was working, and make the changeover seamless for the readers. 


You might want to consider opening your own e-commerce store. You can use sites like Etsy, or Shopify to open up a store, and start selling your products quickly. You can use a dropshipping model for your store, which can help you free up some of your time. 

Sell Your Blog

If your blog is very successful, you could consider selling it. The amount of profit you would make would largely depend on how successful your blog is, and how much traffic it gets. 


Podcasts are extremely popular, and they may be an untapped market of passive income for you. You can create any kind of podcast you want. You might want to record a completely informational podcast, and use advertising as your revenue stream. You may want to host a podcast related to your blog, your e-book, or your affiliate marketing, directing your listener to buy your product.
