How to Create Passive Income from Affiliate Marketing

I first learnt about this term from New York Times bestselling author Robert T. Kiyosaki in his famous book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”.

In this book he wrote about why the rich do not work for money and instead have money work for them. He explain the concept of passive income, which is income that comes in day-in and day-out once the effort has been expended to create this system.

The only effort you have to build is the route that the vending machines are based, arrange for people to replenish the stock and manage the cash. So how do you create your own ‘vending machine’ business from affiliate marketing?

  • Marketing affiliate programmes that pay residuals

You can start to choose affiliate programmes that pay residuals such as

  • web hosting packages
  • SEO packages that others will require monthly

By promoting these programmes, you can acquire a monthly residual income. For instance a web hosting package pays you $3 per sign-up and if you have 10 subscribers who purchase from you, you will have a $30 monthly income from hosting along and that excludes people who buy more expensive packages.

  • Be an affiliate for a product that people need to replenish monthly

If you promote affiliate programmes such as consumables like beauty care or food products, you can gain a nice residual income. Ideas for these residual affiliate business includes gift business, beauty care and food business.

  • Affiliate Programmes that pay you a second-tier income

Another type of affiliate business is one that pays you a second-tier income in addition to the affiliate sales you bring in. That means it pays you an income on the sales made by affiliates who sign up with you. In this way, you can earn not only from your own efforts but also from the efforts of others.

These are just some of the ideas that can help you gain passive residual income from your affiliate marketing business.
