SPI 193: (Updated Recording) Types of Passive Income Generated Online and What to Expect From Each – Part 2

Last week, I kicked off a brand-new, three-part series on getting started with your own passive income business. This week, I’m back to bring you part two!

Part one covered the basics of starting out with passive income and explored what to put in place before creating your business. In part two, I’m going to walk you through what happens once you’ve laid that foundation, and you’re ready to build an audience.

The types of passive income I’m covering today include affiliate marketing, advertising, e-books, and online courses. I’ll teach you some key first steps for getting started, some thing to do and some things to avoid as you start creating, and my personal experiences with each income model. I’ve also got some great resources recommend—tools I’ve either used myself or seen others use while building successful online businesses.

And don’t forget to join me next week for part three, where I’ll explore four more models and which one might be right for your future in passive income.

Thanks for Listening!
