Where’s The Beef? Finding Passive Income Sources

by Scott on February 18, 2011

Remember that commercial from the 80′s where the grandma yell’s this famous line?

Well, that’s the way I’ve been feeling for the past few months regarding passive income. Truth be told, I am making passive income, just not as much as my original goal. So…what can I do about it? Set a more realistic goal. I’ll share mine, if you share yours :)

Goal for February is $500 in Passive Income.

Current income sources:
Adsense
clickbank
ehow
big crumbs
squidoo

I am hoping to scale back on outsourcing content and work on building out current website project myself. I’ve learned much over the past 2 years about SEO and article marketing. I want to know what is working for you and what your goals are this month?

This month I really want to focus on expanding my sources of traffic to my blog and niche sites. Hubpages, Squidoo, InfoBarrel, and other various article sites will be my main focus. One of my goals for 2011 is to expand my content by adding YouTube videos.

Hi Scott,

I’m shooting for $250 in February. I’m using many of the same sources: eHow, adsense, clickbank. I’ve tried Squidoo and haven’t had any success yet. I’ve tried InfoBarrel, but that has also been slow. I’ve found the most success in promoting my old eHow articles. Have you been able to grow you eHow earnings since it changed to Demand Media?

I make a little money through Adbrite (and I do mean ‘a little’). Most of my passive income is from other sources that are non-internet.

I run a blog to help singles and small families save money. If you are ever interest in submitting a guest blog post for us, it would be welcome. I think my readers would enjoy learning a little about passive income in general.

If interested, visit us at http://www.thesinglesaver.com or email me at thesinglesaver@gmail.com All I ask my guest bloggers is that they make a brief announcement on their own site that they are guest blogging for me today… I have found it is a great way to expose our readers to new sites and get some additional traffic in the process.

Laura – Tell me more about your goals for YouTube videos? Be sure to send me a link when you get one published.

Ben – I have not been able to publish an new articles with Demand Media. I submitted my “article resume” but was not approved. I’m not sure if I should give it another shot or just continue to promote existing articles. I have written other articles for sites like Squidoo and Hubpages that are in the same niche as my most profitable ehow articles.

Single Saver – Have you found that adbrite is more profitable compared to adsense? Have you looked into offering clickbank products on your site?

I really can’t compare Adbrite to Adsense… I won’t use Adsense for a variety of reasons. Mainly, though, I use Adbrite because I like being able to choose my ads and reject those that I think go against my overall message. I haven’t looked into Clickbank in a lot of detail as of yet but I will someday as I have an e-book I am working on.

Hello Scott, my income streams have been a success from Adsense and Amazon.. I haven’t been blogging and writing articles in a few months but that’s okay. Money has been still coming in steadily in these two streams from my articles and previous posts on the blogs I do have. If I continue to make articles and keep blogging, I am sure I will be making well over $500 a month. I know I will have to keep at it.
