Passive Income Resources
Over the last four years, I’ve managed to build a passive income from nothing.
You’ve probably seen my YouTube video, from the Four Hour Workweek, where I showed how I made it happen. The video is below, and I start demonstrating how I built my first Passive Income Business at minute 3:30.
So here are the resources that I use to build my online business.
1) Website Hosting and Domain Registration – HostGator
I’ve gone through tons of different webhosts– dreamhost, 1and1, Page.ly, and several more. Every time I had a traffic spike, my site would crash. Or I would have to deal with bad support. Over time, it got to be very annoying—would I need to set up my own ($100/mo+) server to deal with it?
Enter, HostGator. Ever since I switched over, everything has been perfect. No hiccups, not once, on my blog. My content gets served up fast and on time. And their support is spectacular.
If you are trying to set up a blog, get your new domain at HostGator. It’s really cheap—starting at just $3.99/mo.
2) Email Newsletter Management - AWeber
Email marketing is one of the most effective, powerful ways to build income online. AWeber makes it simple to automate. You can set up emails that automatically send themselves after a specific amount of days, so you can Build A Story for new email subscribers.
AWeber has great live support, tutorial videos, and is an AWESOME resource for building your online newsletter. If you want to build income online, you need it.
3) How to Build Passive Income Niche Sites with SEO – The Keyword Academy
I built my original passive income business using SEO and AdSense revenue. I wrote about it in depth in my article Passive Income 101: How To Travel The World Without Working.
The Keyword Academy gave me a step by step series of information about how to become a digital nomad. I learned the specifics of building niche sites. Using their knowledge, I supported myself for several years.
That’s it! Those are the major tools I use to build online revenue.
