In Need Of A Way To Earn Residual Income?

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever been so dissatisfied with your financial situation that it seemed like you would never be able to find a way out? The day to day grind of a regular nine to five job is not for everyone; it can get monotonous and tedious for those who are just not satisfied with such a life. For those of you who are able to make a comfortable living off a mainstream source of employment, generating a stream of residual income probably will not interest you. At some point or another in life, most of us have been there and wish there was something that could be done to make sure it doesn't happen again.

But for those of you who dream of something a little better than what you're doing now, wishing you could take more vacations, thinking of improvements you could make to your home, or even thinking of starting a family having a steady source of income, perhaps even secondary to something else, can be a good idea.

Residual income is money that you can make after you have already finished doing whatever you did to earn it. Many people maintain websites that attract visitors who create business for the advertisers who sponsor the website. The sponsors then kick down a fee to the website owner for leading the customer to them in the first place. All the website owner had to do was create the website, or hire somebody to do it in many cases. Somebody random came across the site and clicked on one of the ads, and they were compensate; these programs are often called PPC or 'pay-per-click programs.'

Similar in tiered structure to 'pay-per-click'programs are affiliate marketing programs, sometimes called MLM or network marketing programs. Affiliate marketing has to do with helping to generate business for businesses on the internet, including but not limited to driving paying members to the site. When affiliates recruit other affiliates they are entitled to a portion of what their affiliate has made, creating an eventual means of residual income. Once the other affiliates are working, your initial effort of becoming an affiliate and recruiting them has been expended. They can make money for you from that point on.

If you have a bit more startup cash, consider getting into real estate if you want a more serious way of going about generating residual income. While real estate is quite a substantial investment, it creates a solid source of residual income that is guaranteed to come to you each month in the form of rent payments.

Taking steps toward earning residual income is one of the best steps you can take towards having a little "something extra." With dedication, you'll be generating income passively, with very little direct involvement if any at all.
