I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that you can always come to for all of your passive income needs. I’ll add to it as I learn more, but you’ll notice that in the future I will reference this page quite often. I recommend bookmarking it for your reference and convenience. Enjoy!

My Most Recommended
If you look at nothing else on this page, these are the four that you should know about. I find myself recommending these resources again and again, in emails and on podcasts. I use them because they make my life easier, and I’m confident you’ll agree too.
LeadPages: Continuing on the easy-to-use theme, this is by far my favorite tool for easily creating high-quality landing pages and squeeze pages. LeadPages will help you convert viewers into subscribers or buyers. Best of all, it works both with WordPress and non-WordPress sites alike. (Click here for a FREE Webinar Replay that demos the software and shares rapid list-building tips for your email list. You won’t be disappointed!)
OptinSkin: My biggest blogging regret is still how long I waited before collecting email addresses. Glen Allsop from Viperchill.com created OptinSkin, a fantastic tool to help us more easily embed email opt-in forms into our websites. I use it specifically at the bottom of my posts and I love it.

Several people have used this tutorial to get their first podcasts on iTunes.

Create and sell multiple courses, with modules and lessons right from the convenience of your WordPress Dashboard.
SPI Sponsors (and Deals for You!)
I’d like to welcome a few special sponsors into the SPI family!
For full transparency, I do receive payment for mentioning these companies. I’ve carefully chosen them because I use them myself, they love and appreciate the SPI community, and they offer extra value to you as a fan and follower of SPI. I wouldn’t allow them to be sponsors otherwise because you matter the most to me!
