How To Start Earning Passive Online Income - My Top 5 Tips

Last Update: October 27, 2014

If you would like to learn how to start earning a passive online income, there are certain things you need to consider. Don’t think for one minute that signing up to a get rich quick scheme is going to help you. If you really want to see your goals of earning a passive income online succeeding you need to work hard.

Below I share my top 5 tips for helping you to get started when it comes to wanting to earn a passive online income without any real struggle :

Tip 1 – Start By Ask Yourself “ Are You Doing This Just For The Money?”

If you want to be able to generate a passive online income it will of course depend largely on who your target audience is. If they start to recognise that you are in it simply to make money rather than providing them with what they need of course they will look elsewhere for what it is they want. When setting up an online business it shouldn’t be about how much you can make but it should be about helping others to find a solution to their problem.

Tip 2 – You Need To Work Hard

If you think that your business is going to start earning you money overnight then think again. Before your business really can succeed you need to be willing to put a lot of time and effort into making sure that you provide your audience with what it is they want. Don’t expect your audience to appear suddenly, you’ll find it could take several months before you really start to see the kinds of results you desire. If you aren’t willing to work at making your online business a success then don’t think about setting one up.

Tip 3 – Do Not Think That You Can Just Sit Back and Relax

When it comes to earning a passive income online we are actually talking about building a business that is automated. However in order to maintain the business automation you need to retain the trust of your target audience. Therefore you will need to actually interact with them once in a while. If you aren’t willing to do this then of course interest in your business will soon begin to wane.

Tip 4 – Look For A Niche Where You Can Help

Most people when looking for ways of how to start earning passive online income without any struggles tend to build something that is designed to serve anybody and everybody. Instead you should be looking for a particular niche that you can specialise in where not many others have already been offering a product or solution to their target audience. If you can look for a niche that you find of interest or that you have some experience with, that will be great. In this way, the message you are going to put across is the kind that will resonate more closely with your audience.

However avoid picking topics that are especially popular. The more sites revolving around it means that you have even more people to compete with for getting your target audience to notice you.

Tip 5 – Don’t Start Charging Straight Away

In the beginning if you really want to gain your audiences trust, you need to offer them something for free. It is important that what you offer is something that they are going to find valuable, and which clearly shows your knowledge and expertise. A free report is one way of getting your target audience to begin trusting you.

You will have an edge if you have a personal experience in a chosen niche. Approaching your audience from a unique perspective sets you apart right away and so it will not matter if there are others already in that business.

Thanks for the tips, Jewel!
Have a productive week.

Thanks for sharing, Jewel. Good Tips! I would add a caveat on No. 5. Don't give too much away. After a free report or other free item, maybe give away something with a purchase and then every now and then. I learned the hard way that if you away too much, they expect it for free all the time.

There are many gurus here ... I am definitely no guru by the way but I had some internet experience and I had earned some money in the past ... But the only regret I had is that i never bother to build a list, so now starting .. lol. :)
