How to make a passive income in 2021?
I think most of us would like to have an answer to that question.
What to avoid
When we think about a passive income, we probably imagine ourselves sitting in front of a computer and do some tasks and the money will flow into our account.
This is not impossible but at the same time, we have to be aware of that there are many scammers out there and they are only after our money without any scruples.
They pretend to be our benefactors and use smooth talks in order to convince us on how they can make you rich with only a few clicks on your computer.
The real facts are that they only take advantage of people’s innocents and their desire to make an online living.
They often brag about their own success and want to sell their “secret” on how to go about to you.
Question: If they are so successful themselves, Why sell this “secret” to others?
Above all, avoid them. Read here on how they go about it!
With that said let’s go further.
How to make a passive income in 2021?
There is one English word I like very much. That is LEGIT.
If you are looking for a way to make a passive income you should look for a platform or a program that could be considered 100% legit. Admittingly it is not easy to find among those thousands of programs that promise to be the best or fastest way to make money online. So how to go about it?
Let me present affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is probably the most legit form on the internet today when it comes to making a passive income from your computer.
It is as the name reveals a way to make money as an affiliate. To be an affiliate means that you sell other’s products and get a commission for doing that.
In other words, you don’t need to have your manufacturing and stock. All the bigger companies have what is called an affiliate program. You can sign up to be an affiliate for these companies. Examples of companies that offer affiliate programs are Amazon, eBay, Walmart, and many many others.
So affiliate marketing is probably one of the best ways to make an income online.
At the beginning of this post, the question was asked: How to make a passive income in 2021?
What do we mean when we talk about passive income?
It sounds like you just do a few steps on your computer and then the money starts to roll in. If it was so simple there would probably be more persons doing affiliate marketing. This is what the scammers want you to believe but in reality, you have to do some work before the money starts to come in.
How to create a passive income
It is a dream for everyone who wants to make money online when you are so to speak sleeping. It can work but not without effort. You need quality traffic to your website and the more traffic you get the more revenue you will make. This is a key factor when it comes to making a passive income.
So how do I get this quality traffic?
Let me introduce Wealthy Affiliate
Wealthy Affiliate is a platform that has helped tens of thousands to be successful online and consequently makes a passive income year after year. Some make thousands of dollars every month by working only 10 hours per month.
But as I said to reach this goal doesn’t come without effort.
If you are a person who is willing to work hard when you set up your business, you are a candidate to achieve your goals to make a passive income even when you sleep.
So what is Wealthy Affiliate
Wealthy Affiliate is a platform that trains anyone to be a successful affiliate marketer. For the moment there are 1.400.000+ members in this program. It has helped people to be successful online since 2005 when it was founded by 2 Canadian guys.
The founders of Wealthy Affiliate
These 2 Canadians were already successful in affiliate marketing back in 2005. Since affiliate marketing has a huge potential they came up with the idea to create a platform to train people to have the same success as they had. From idea to reality and Wealthy Affiliate was created and is now without comparison the biggest training platform on this globe, for training persons to be successful on this earth.
How does this training work?
It is a step-by-step system where you are trained from scratch on how to be a successful affiliate marketer. It is here the efforts start. In other words, the training is the effort you need to go through. When this is done you can slow down the pace, because you already start to make money during the course.
When the course is done hopingly you only need to maintain your business and the passive income is flowing into your bank account every month. Wouldn’t it be nice to only work 10 to 20 hours every month and still have a full income check. From this point, you can of course increase your income by putting in more hours to your work. Only the sky is the limit.
