Five Great Passive Income Ideas
1.Promote And Sell Other People’s Products

If you have regular readers, chances are they’re interested in the same things. That’s why they subscribe to you in the first place!
Niche hobbies and interests come hand in hand with products and services. You probably even use a few yourself.
Beauty bloggers often sell fashion products, for example. Fashion bloggers sell clothes. This method is known as “affiliate marketing” and the key is to be subtle. Include hyperlinks within your blog, as part of conversational text, so they don’t feel forced.
