A Passive Income Plan Explained for the Creative Entrepreneur
For many creative entrepreneurs being able to generate passive income is like finding the holy grail. After all, what could be more awesome than money coming daily with no work? Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions around passive income that many of you may have heard unrealistic expectations that has kept many of you from making real passive income.
How does passive income work, really? What can you really expect if you want to embark on the journey of creating streams of passive income?
Passive income is like training for a marathon.It takes a lot of energy to get started. But once you are off and running, it will require a lot less energy. The expenditure is no longer about conditioning yourself for the next mile, but more staying on track to make it to the finish line.
The idea of having money coming in daily is very appealing. But the real deal is , there’s only two ways to create passive income: To buy it or to create it. If you got a few extra bucks lying around then you good to go, but if you have to create it, then it's going to require some work. Look I understand- not having to work is great, but you must be willing to put in the work upfront if you want to reap the benefits. There’s no such thing as passive income for nothing.
Passive Income Vehicles Online
There are many ways to make passive income online. Here are just a few I suggest:
AdSense Websites. If you have a site with good search engine rankings and you’re monetizing with AdSense, then as long as your site rankings are high than your income will be 100% passive.
Info Product. If you own an info product, such as an ecourse or ebook and have a sales model setup that includes driving traffic and converting that traffic into sales, then the money will keep coming in even while you sleep.
Affiliate Marketing. Again, if you have consistent traffic coming into your site, whether it’s through direct search engine traffic or through ads, so long as the traffic remains constant you’ll keep collecting a check whether or not you put in any work.
Keep in mind these are just a few of the many options available to you. I suggest to choose one, and work your plan. Once you have reached a passive income you are satisfied with then move on to the next passive income generator.
I'm still working the info product model. I trying to produce new content every week. I have a goal of reaching a 10k mark- $100 a week (simple, attainable,& measurable).
Although I given you the most popular passive income business model, it’s important to remember ... Nothing is 100% Passive
Even if you have an Ad campaign bringing in $100 a day, you still will have to check your stats at least several times a week.If you have an AdSense website making you money from traffic you still need to check your rankings and your traffic about once a week or so to make sure things are running smoothly.
Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, once said: “Never get involved with a passive income vehicle you don’t love. If you do, you won’t maintain it.” That’s more true than ever online.
The Reward of Passive Income
Passive income is one of the greatest reward for a creative entrepreneur. It’s very achievable and very lucrative. That said, it’s important to realize that you do have to work very hard at it to create it. Your passive income model will not run itself - you still have to monitor and maintain the income.
