Creating Passive Income by Writing Short Reports

Creating Passive Income by Writing Short Reports

A lot of people start their online adventures with dreams of making a ton of money, buying a big house, possibly a yacht, and working in their pajamas until four in the afternoon.

Unfortunately, that’s not the reality for most of us. It takes hard work, discipline, time and motivation to begin to see even a little bit of income. Sure, you can work in your pajamas, but don’t quit your day job yet. What you need to work towards is creating passive income if you want to reach those dreams of financial freedom.

The great thing is, it can be done! There are many ways to create passive income online, but I’m going to share one method with you in this article that is relatively easy, and almost anyone can do it.

Creating Passive Income With Short Reports

Even if you’re new to the internet marketing thing, I’m sure you’ve ran across a short report or two since you began. Shorts reports are typically 5-10 page PDFs that can be downloaded to your computer.

A lot of marketers use short reports to entice people to sign up for their newsletter. When you sign up with your name and email, you’re given a link to download the free report.

Other marketers give their short reports away without having to opt in to anything in the hopes that it will go viral – meaning the report will get passed around all over the internet. This brings a lot of traffic back to the author’s website and helps build their brand.

What I’m talking about today is not about giving those reports away.

I’m talking about selling those reports.

Before you think I’m a lunatic, hear me out.

I’ve purchased many a short report online, and I know a lot of others do too. It’s not the length of the report that people are concerned about. It’s the quality. Many marketers fill their reports with fluff and hype to make them look really long. They equate long with value. That’s just not the reality though.

Some of the best reports I’ve read were only 10 pages long. People just don’t have the time to read more than that. They have a problem. They need a solution. They need it now. And you can give it to them.

You can create an outline for a report in just a few minutes. You can write that report in just a few days or less if you’re really focused. You can edit that report in one day. So in less than one week, you can have a report packaged in a PDF and ready to sell.

But how do you sell it?

You promote it with a free email mini-course!

What the heck is an email mini-course?

An email mini-course – or an ecourse – is just a few short emails delivered in sequence through an autoresponder. You can write a really great article that is related to your short report, break it up into a few parts, then load it into your autoresponder as Lesson 1, Lesson 2, etc.

When someone signs up for your ecourse, they have each lesson delivered to their inbox starting with Lesson 1. In those lessons, you get your subscriber pumped about your short report, then offer it to them at the end of the lessons.

Not everybody will buy it, but if you do a good job of “pre-selling” it, you can get a good percentage of them to. If your ecourse provides really great content that they find useful, they’ll be willing to pay to get even more information from you.

These are the basics of this particular method. And if you continue to use this method multiple times, it can be a great way to create passive income and keep building it over time.

Creating an Online Website for Advertising

Creating an Online Website for Advertising

If you have a good business model to implement and share, participate in a referral program, or have a marketing idea that can help you earn money online, the first step to create a website. What some may not know is that a website is a monthly expense and can quickly become a full time job. You will pay a host a monthly fee to keep your website online and functioning properly. You may also have to pay someone a fixed amount to initially create your website so that it stands out among the others, and is able to get picked up by popular search engines. On top of these two common expenses, you will need to keep adding more to your website, updating, and altering it throughout the following months so that any one who views your website will frequently continue to come back.

Shop around for a good host to start your service with and choose a domain name (which is an extra expense) that is catchy, unique, or that stands out. This should also be something that is directly related to what you are advertising. For example, if you are advertising a new idea on how you can make cash online, you may consider a domain name involving the words “make,” “money,” and “online.” A poor example of a domain name related to this would be something hard to remember, such as “1234567makemoneyonline,” or something that is too long.

See what other websites in your genre or field look like by doing a quick search online. Many of them will probably look pretty basic and similar. You want yours to stand out from the rest. If you are marketing a product or referral program, your website should express in sophistication that it truly does work, not in flashing lights and with advertisement riddled pages. Settle on a single theme and carry it throughout your entire website, or hire a web designer to do this for you.

Create original content for your website. People relate best to other people, and a good way to express that you are no different from them, is in your own words. Include a contact form sent through the website so that they can connect with you personally if they choose, and without having to give your personal email address information. Some other things to consider regarding content for your website are examples of marketing or sales letters, tips and tricks that you can offer to your readers, and any other lessons you have learned that may be helpful in benefiting someone else. This will help you earn visitors that come back, which will boost your chances of referral.

After all the initial work it takes to create your own website, once it has been completed you will only need to worry about updates and getting more visitors to view your website. With everything working fine, you can focus on earning money online as you had originally set out to do!

Passive Internet Income – The Reality of an Average Person Creating a Passive Internet Income

Passive Internet Income – The Reality of an Average Person Creating a Passive Internet Income

The definition of “passive” as relating to “passive internet income” is: 1) inactive, but acted upon, 2) offering no resistance, submissive.

The “act” being your initial work and the “inactive” and the “offering no resistance” being the continuing results from that work.

Another way to say it is “Do something once, get paid twice.”

In the case of passive internet income, you receive income from work that you have done in the past.
You are no longer trading one hour of time for a dollar amount or one year of time (salary) for a dollar amount.

Traditionally, with owning a brick and mortar business, the high cost of purchasing or starting a business is deemed too great a risk for the average person. That along with all of the extra time and effort required to get the business profitable and stable hinders most people from even thinking about starting their own business.

The internet has changed nearly everything about business and has opened up opportunities that were not available even a few years ago.

The average person now has a realistic chance of creating a passive internet income within a few short years!

The internet is still something vast and complicated so many people’s main concern about starting an internet business, especially something that will produce a passive income, is ” What If I Don’t Know Anything?”

Here we need to be realistic!

We all have to learn things when we start a new job, have a child, learn how to drive a car or how to tie a shoe!

Learning never really ends in our lifetime and that’s a great thing.

We start a new job, and even if we have the same job title, there are many things that we must adjust to. There are new people, new computer programs, new processes, new health insurance, new co-workers, new bosses, new job descriptions…the question is are you really thinking about a passive internet income as if you are starting another job?

Or are you thinking that it should be simple and easy to immediately make a passive internet income by just showing up?

Being open to learning new things is vital when choosing to create your passive internet income.

I’ve been very interested in learning all I can about the internet and all of the possibilities it offers to the average person.
