3 Passive Income Ideas You’re Probably Not Doing: Episode 276

Today's episode is all about PASSIVE INCOME! One of my favorite things about being an entrepreneur is that you don't have to trade time for money. You can be selling courses, being an affiliate, and making money around the clock. So today I'm sharing 3 easy passive income ideas that you're probably not doing!

*This post may contain affiliate links, which means I may receive a small commission, at no cost to you, if you make a purchase through a link on this blog. I would never recommend a product I don’t use or love myself!

“If you don't find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.”

Idea #1- Create an Automated Email Nurture Sequence with Affiliates (3:20)

Your nurture sequence is the first series of emails people receive from you when they sign up for your freebie.

When you set up an email nurture sequence that sends out automated emails recommending courses or webinars that you are an affiliate for, this is creating passive income for you every time someone buys!

That means if someone clicks on the course you recommended and signs up, YOU GET MONEY!

Set up to be an Affiliate for Tools In Your OWN Program (5:12)

On the back end, when you have an online course, could you be an affiliate for all the products and programs that are recommended in the course?

When people sign up to work with you, that means they like and trust you.

As they go through your course, make a list of thee things you’re recommending, whether it be products, books, amazon links, courses, or even web platforms (trello, WordPress) and sign up to be an affiliate for those things! This way, as you recommend things, you have a special link for them to use. And as people sign up for the things you would have already rcommended… ca-ching.

Never waste an opportunity to make money.



Idea #2- Create a Webinar Leading to a Course That You’re Selling (6:11)

Think- could you create a course?

If so, create a webinar that’s evergreen that they can sign up to watch whenever!

I did this a few years ago, I set up the evergreen webinar that led to my course signup and immediately went on a cruise.

When I got off the cruise, I turned on my phone and realized 3 people signed up for my course. I was making money on vacation!!

This gos to show how powerful it can be. We’ve had 1,800 students go through my Pin With Purpose program a lot of that its from the webinar. This webinar is 100% passive! I don’t have to show up at all. IT’s so powerful.



Idea #3- Create an EPIC Blog Post or Podcast that has Affiliates in it (7:28)

Create some form of content, podcast or blog post, that has affiliate links in it.

We talk a lot about how to rank with SEO non google and Pinterest.

Create an “Ultimate Guide To” and then within this post, recommend the links you’re an affiliate for, or even link your course! If you do a good job ranking, you can gain so much traffic to this content you can CRUSH IT, and make so much passive income.

Don’t expect immediate results, or results from zero effort. It takes putting these systems into place. BUT once you do, and put in the time and systems, it WILL PAY OFF!
