ways to make passive income online with a blog

These Ways to Make Passive income by blogging, is a list.

I shall try to make this article long, for you. Some ways are better, some are worst, but most im listing here are proven. Earning money passively is not an overnight or get rich fast way. Blogging is a daily or weekly routine and it doesnt take more then 1 hour per article. But with time, you start getting 1 to 5 visits to an article, then if you write things people have not read before, and in a way that is easy short and fun to read, those numbers multiply.
Now then, here are affiliate programs that you can freely subscribe to after 15-20 articles written, to start trying to monetize your blog: (scroll to bottom for the continuation of this article, then come back to the list of ways to make passive income later)
  • Amazon Affiliate Program – Affiliate marketing means selling other people’s stuff and earning a commission. Amazon is one of the best affiliate program on the internet. Another such kind of programs for Digital information goods are Clickbank & Commission Junction. 
  • Amazon Seller – The title says it all, sell your products on Amazon and make a passive income daily, by getting rid of stuff, or buying it at whole sale in china maybe?
  • Infolinks – Infolink is the highest paying in the text advertising. You see the links on the various phrases of the articles online. These are provided by the infolinks. The best thing is that they serve the adds for every size of blogs or websites.
  • Kontera – Another such website is a Kontera. It’s same like Infolink. Kontera provides innobative online advertising solutions.
  • Adbrite – The space on your website/blog is the real estate and you can rent it to the online advertising companies. AdBrite is one such Online Advertising Company. Chitika & Google AdSense are others.
  • Associated Content – One great way to make money on the internet without spending anything is you write for popular articles directories. Associated Content is one such articles directory on which you write and if they like your article, they will pay you $ 3-20 per article.
  • Yahoo! Merchant Solutions –Create your own Online store and start selling virtually anything to whole of this world.
  • Azoogleads – Advertising program

  • Cafepress – You provide your own design to these people and they will toss it on T-Shirt & Mug and after that you can promote that product on your website.
  • Chitika – It’s exactly same like AdSense & AdBrite.
  • Clickbank – This is my most favourite affiliate program. It is for promoting and selling Digital Information goods online. The best part about selling information products is that you will earn up to 75% of commission and the customer will download that product immediately for the use.
  • ClicknWork – A Great website for Freelancing.
  • Clicksor - These are the guys that generate contextual ads on sites that show up when you hover over a double-underlined word.
  • Commission Junction – It’s just like Clickbank means it is the affiliate program for Digital Information goods. This is my second most favourite affiliate program.
  • CreamAid - For blogs only, advertisers provide you with a topic and you write about it on your site. To do this, you have to install a flash widget into your blog post. The more people you bring into the conversation through the widget, the more you get paid. It's difficult to explain.
  • eefoof - Think of it as YouTube + Flickr + Music. You add original content and they pay you based on the visitors you attract.
  • Ether - If you are an expert on something, Ether provides a way for people to pay you to talk about it in a one-on-one setting. If you want to charge $250/hr, that's fine. You have to do all the advertising so you should have a blog or site already established.
  • eBay- eBay is the world’s largest online marketplace. You can open your own eBay store in few minutes and start selling literally anything to whole of this world.
  • eBay Stores - If you have a real store and want to sell your stuff online, this is a decent option to get you started.
  • ELance – This is the best freelancing website where you can get some work about coding, programming, writing or many other things and make money on the Internet.
  • Google Adsense – This is the best online advertising program in the world. And this program don’t need any explanation at all. In fact, the most of thee Income for this blog come from this single advertising program.
  • Google Adwords – If you have some money to spend, you can use Google AdWords to attract highly targeted buyers web traffic on your affiliate links or sales page and make lots of money from it.
  • H3.com - Get paid to fill jobs. Commissions range from $50-$5,000. It all depends on how tough the job is to fill and how desperate the hiring company is. This is another one that's tough to explain.
  • Indeed.com - Add their job board to your site. They then post jobs based on the geographic location of visitors and the position types you pre-select.
  • InnerSell - If you have a customer that wants to buy something you cannot sell, you can sell the lead here.
  • Jigsaw - It's a pretty flaky model but if you have a Rolodex full of good contacts, you can sell them here. I can't make sense of it but it looks like you get $0.10 per profile.
  • LinkShare.com - If you have a site, you can join Linkshare. Once enrolled for free, you can choose companies whose ads are pertinent to your site. Companies have the ultimate say on working with you. Like Commission Junction, there are a ton of companies waiting to evaluate your site.
  • Microsoft Adcenter - Bid on keywords and Microsoft places your created ads then they are searched for. This is similar to Google Adwords. You do not need a site for this.
  • Overstock.com - Sell your stuff on Overstock.com
  • Pay Per Post – They have advertisers who will pay you money to write about their products on your blog or website.
  • Pheedo - If you have an RSS feed, run it through Pheedo. Like Feedburner, they can include ads into your feed and if you really become large, advertisers will pay a premium for you to show their ads.
  • Shareasale.com – It’s same like Linkshare and Commission Junction.
  • Software Judge - They will pay you up to $50 to review software.
  • Text Link Ads - You can earn by sending advertisers to them or by selling spots on your site. You must have a real site or blog to do this - nothing on a shared domain (i.e. /blogspot).
  • Vibrant Media - Don't bother unless your site has 500,000 page views of text based content a month. If you have that readership, these are the guys that display bubble box ads to underlined words on your site.
  • West Work At Home Agent - Not entirely online but this is worth a mention because it's won awards and is very legitimate. If you are an at-home Mom or free-lancer without work, you should check this out.
  • ReviewMe - In order to participate, you must have a blog and it has to be active. Companies go to ReviewMe to advertise a product and ReviewMe asks their members to write a review of the product in exchange for cash.
    In regards to ethics, ReviewMe mandates that the blogger/site owner indicate that they are being compensated to write the review AND the advertiser cannot insist on a positive review. This is the opposite of other similar services that don't mandate trustworthy behavior. Ultimately the goal is to spread the word honestly.
    You can expect to earn $20 - $200 per review that you write.
  • Revver - You basically upload your video to Revver and they attach an ad to it. You get 50% of what the ad makes. If any of you have been on YouTube or other video sites, you can easily understand that some videos, even bad ones at times, go viral and thousands of people see it, and your ad! If you want to see a sample of this, here is a link to Revver's 'most watched' page.
  • Vizu - I really like the sound of this one and may try it on Dumb Little Man. Instead of putting ads on your site, you insert polls. You get paid based on the CPM (cost per thousand) that you set. The better positioning on your site, the better you will do. The nice part of this is that everything is embedded into your site allowing visitors to participate without leaving.
  • Break.com - Upload your videos and pictures all day. If they like them and place them on their homepage, they will pay you $400 for original videos (you know, snowboarding off a house onto a trampoline and breaking your arm, etc) and up to $2000 for short films. They also have other random contests that pay out $50 a picture.
  • CelltradeUSA: Refer your visitors to CelltradeUSA. I wrote about them recently, but they offer an affiliate programnow. In short, if people need to get out of a cell phone contract, cell trade helps them by matching them with someone that wants to enter into a phone contact without all the fees.
  • Bitwine - If you are an expert or even mildly knowledgeable on something, Bitwine provides a way for you to set a per minute rate and charge people to talk to you in a private meeting space. Bitwine is currently in "beta" so they are waiving fees which at some point will most likely be a % of your earnings. This sounds similar to Ether, which is a service we discussed in July.
  • Clickbooth - Clickbooth is a site that blog owners or site owners can join to place Cost Per Action ads on their site. It has a good base of advertisers and is similar to Commission Junction or Linkshare.
  • LoudLaunch - This service has not officially launched yet but it's something to watch. I first learned about this onMicro Persuasion and the consensus seems to be that it is similar to Review Me (which is on this list).
  • Rent-A-Coder: As I type this, there are 2,299 requests on this site. These requests are opportunities for coders to earn money. Take on a project, get it done and get paid. I like this concept because Rent-A-Coders doesn't get paid a thing until you do therefore it is in their best interest to keep you busy.
  • Shopping.com - Add widgets to your site that display products based on keywords. For the ultra-skilled, you can even customize the entire user experience by tapping into their API. I guarantee you've seen sites with this installed and you never realized it.

Ways to make passive income

Some ways to make a living with a blog are better then other depending on your niche. And to research your niche you will need information about keywords and products, and what people search for online, how competitive the market you will blog about is etc.

I use this keyword scout tool, go ahead and read reviews about it, I use to use the market Samurai but it not only was an old and slow software, it was expensive. They even have a facebook page made by USERS not the MAKERS, so you get tutorials, support, real opinions, ex- noble samurai users and so on.

Never buy any e-book on ways to make passive income!

Most e-books sold to teach you how to earn money online are written in a way that they still try to sell you INSIDE the ebook, tools that are ridiculously expensive that you dont even need. they also included repetitive articles about everything you can find for FREE. Unless you are a beginner, dont buy them. There are no secrets. To earn a living with a blog it takes effort, it takes 1-4 hours a week to write something you dont copy paste in your blog, it takes people linking to your site (backlinks). Then it takes products or advertising to sell on your blog.

There are multiple streams of income that are possible, when trying to make a sustainable yet passive money just by blogging.
