Passive Income for Christmas?
Passive income is a way to make money while you sleep or have fun with your family. You do have to put in some initial “work” but then you can be away from “work” for a while and still continue to bring in money. Passive Income is what may save the American Dream for some of us. I am no expert but am willing to share some tips and ideas that I know and use.
Swagbucks– I do the daily poll and use Swagbucks to look up stuff instead of google. (sorry google) The more people who are referred by me the more swagbucks I earn which translates into $5 Amazon Gift Cards! If you have NOT already signed up for Swagbucks I encourage you to do so. It’s easy money. Click to join Swagbucks!
Ads on website- if you blog all you have to do is install ads into your website for pay-per-impression or pay-per-click ads. Both have their advantages. Go Daddy is one of the websites I am an affiliate with for the pay-per-click.
Affiliate links in posts or newsletter- lots of places to get affiliate links, e-junkie is just one of many places where you can get many affiliates from one site.
Tyndale Rewards-Just joined already have enough pts. earned to select a Book or Narnia Audio CD for Silver Chair. This is very exciting for this budget loving mom.
Like I said I am NO expert, but just a mommy blogger trying to find a way to boost our income and
play I mean work at home while I’m doing it. With the cost of childcare and the desire to home educate, we just cannot afford for both parents to be at work in this economy where you have to be available from 5am to 10pm for a first shift job! Employers really do not want or have to work around your college schedule or your spouses work schedule to save you childcare costs! Companies are not seeking the best employee for the job but the one most available for the job with or without the best skills. This is very frustrating for someone like me who doesn’t have a BA (yet) but has lots of experience in business and some in marketing, good computer skills, phone and fax skills.
Still not convinced passive income is for you? Did you know there are LOTS and LOTS of bloggers that make $1,000 or more a month from the comfort of their homes! Right now I would be very happy with $500. So if you want to learn more about passive income check out these experts who are making money and how they are doing it:
