How Being “Passive” Can make you leave your 9-5 Job

Passive Income

by Wasim Ismail on August 1, 2011

Are you getting tired of working at your 9 to 5 job, realizing that regardless that how hard you may work, all that you will get is that fixed per-hour rate that you have been getting for several years – without any promise of increasing?

If this is the case, then you might want to look for other opportunities.  In fact, there is one opportunity now, which you may just be interested in. I’m talking about the Internet and all the opportunities that it presents to all of those who are interested.

If you are one who loves to be his own boss – and likes to earn passive income while at it, then the Internet is the perfect medium to make this possible.  But how do you do it?  Here are some tips that you might want to look into:

Do Some Research About Internet Businesses

When I say “passive” in the Internet business sense, it does not mean that you shouldn’t do anything at all.  Earning millions of dollars without doing anything is simply an impossible dream.

Seriously speaking, in order for one to really earn from the Internet – you must at least have studied the industry as much as you can.  Otherwise, you might be experiencing some problems and difficulties along the way.

When it comes to the most viable options for you, I would suggest those Internet businesses which have quite a good percentage of success and a passive income that can be earned using the most fool-proof methods and with minimal financial risks entailing it, such as Affiliate marketing, and the like.

Find Your Niche

Although the World Wide Web has numerous niches and an innumerable number of products to choose from – finding one niche to specialize or focus on would be an excellent idea on your part.

As much as possible, find a niche that you are familiar with and one that you truly believe in.  Through this, you will be able to strategize more efficiently as to how you can sell and market your product – with utmost efficiency and at minimal cost to you.

Aside from your personal preference, other qualifications in finding the right niche for you would be the interest that it gets from the market, its feasibility, its availability, the return of investment that it offers and of course, you must also try to find out as whether the products coming from this niche are actually sellable online or not.

If you want, you can also try to do some researches online regarding your niche. Try to see if your prospective niche has enough Clickbank products to make it marketable, or whether there is enough interest about the said niche as to make it a wise investment on your part.

Study The Competition

Because the entire world has the Internet – then expect to meet some serious competition along the way.  However, do not be discouraged.  What you should instead do is to study the more successful competitors that you have – and then try to be better than them.

Try to see as to which competitor is most successful in the particular niche that you are working on.  Afterwards, go and then try to study as to what is making it ahead of all the others.

You can either do some further research about your competition through the Internet using the appropriate tools, or, if you have the extra cash – buy some of his products.  Through this, you will have an idea as to how you can make things better on your end.

Upon getting a clear glimpse as to how efficient his strategy is, you can then apply it to your own business, on your own products.  However, do not just copy everything from him.  Make your product more efficient and better than what he offers.  If needed, you can always outsource and use the expertise of experts to make this possible.  Be careful though.  Only deal with trusted and reputable professionals.  Otherwise, you run the risk of losing some of your hard-earned money.

In the long run, what is important is that you are able to build for yourself an online business that will not only be able to support you financially, but also one which can assure you of a passive income that will provide you with the freedom that other businesses simply cannot.
