Here, I am describing certain ways with which you can keep your cash-flow uninterrupted. These are simple but effective techniques that need no big investment to begin with. You, however, have to have some skills in order to leverage them to your benefit.

  1. Start writing blogs

Blog writing has become one of the most effective ways of generating passive income these days. Although it takes time but the dividends are tremendous. So, if you are going to start your blog today, you will have to wait for a few months or even a year before you see money coming in. If you are specialized in a particular topic or you have an expertise in a specific domain, no one can stop you from monetizing your skills. All you need to do is start building a regular viewership for your content. It will even be better if you provide informational and actionable tips for your readers regarding your topic. Once you establish yourself as a trusted source of information, more and more audience will read your content and then sky is the limit.

There are many blogging platforms where you can post your blogs. For example, WordPress.org, WordPress.com, Blogger, Tumblr, Medium, Squarespace, etc are some of the widely used platforms. You can choose any of these platforms (I will personally recommend WordPress) and register your domain name and hosting. After designing your blog, you can then add posts and pages.

  1. Create online courses

If you possess a sound knowledge about a subject matter or a skill and want to communicate it in successive chapters and installments, creating an online course would be the best proposition for you. Online courses are increasingly becoming popular because students and learners find them very convenient in terms of availability, accessibility and the fact that they can do it in their own time. You will need a systematic approach to plan out the things that you want to teach and share through your course. These courses could encompass anything such as technical skills, high-school mathematics, playing certain instruments, etc. After a sustained effort and honest approach, you will definitely start getting immense profits from online courses.

So, how do you create your online course? Well, you can find many platforms where you can put your courses for sale, for example, Skillshare, Udemy, Click4Course, and WizIQ, etc. You can upload your courses in any of these platforms and set your own price points. Whenever someone buys the course, you get a certain amount of it.

  1. Utilize the potential of YouTube

Trust me; the earning potential through YouTube is astonishing. If you can create a channel popular enough, you can make millions. It, however, depends how and what you do with your YouTube account as it is the leading video platform in the internet today. There are many YouTube stars who have already done it and are earning millions of dollars. However, I cannot give guaranteed assurance that you will become one but, I can promise you taking small steps can earn money for you.

You can start by making short videos of cooking certain dishes that you are well versed with, or tips how to play guitar (if you know it), or videos about taking care of your pets. After creating awesome videos that people will love and share, you can upload it on YouTube. There are certain aspects that you have to focus on if you want people to watch and like your videos. First of all, it should have an eye-catching title. Secondly, it should have perfect sound, light, resolution and clarity. Also, share your videos on all of your active social media networks.

Being a remote online personal assistant, there are many things you can perform online on behalf of others like research, administration, writing, editing, emailing, data entry and so on. How much money will you make out of this? It depends on your skills and the type of work you are provided by individual or companies. The main advantage of working as an online PA is that you get to call the shots, set your own pricing, and choose your own clients. However, finding clients is also a challenge in this type of work. But once you get started, it will pay off well in the long run.

There are many companies that serve as intermediaries between you and clients such as Lifebushido, EA Help, Worldwide 101, Gabbyville etc. You will work as an online PA and can be paid based on the number of clients you work with or the amount of time you log.

  1. Earn through affiliate marketing
