A passive income is an extra amount of money you can earn by doing little if any extra work in addition to your regular job. Here are some examples:

App design

If you design your own app for a smartphone, you will earn money every time someone downloads it. A successful app can earn you a lot of money.

@martinsoft – Up early finalising some changes to @dash_pm for our new upcoming release. 😊 . This week has started off pretty good! • 🏃🏻‍♂️On Sunday I ran 11 miles for the first time in a while (an amazing way to clear your head); • 🎉 Yesterday all the work I’d submitted last week for my client’s project passed through QA on the first run, with no issues. • 😅 And this morning I’ve finished all the remaining tasks for our new DASH release so it can go for testing. . How is your week going so far?

Online writing

Many online writers are paid for the first few years that they write articles. Thereafter, they earn money based on page views of their articles. Well-written articles earn good money.

Create a YouTube video

You can run ads on a successful YouTube video. If your video goes viral, you stand to earn a lot of money.

Write a book

The author of a published book earns money from the sale of their book. Pitch your book to publishers, or you can self-publish an e-book.



You can sell photos you have taken to sites such as Shutterstock and earn a commission each time your image is downloaded.

Invest in the stock market

This should be approached with caution. Educate yourself thoroughly before entering the stock market.
