Best Writing Site For Earning Passive Income

One of the first ways I started out earning money online was through writing short articles of less than 500 words for several writing sites. After a few months the earnings started to trickle in and I got to see which sites paid off the most.

The articles I wrote for Ehow (Now Demand Media) have generated me anywhere from a little over $100-$200/month. I wrote these article a few years ago and have not added any since but I still get this passive income every month.

This is one of the great benefits to working on the internet since you can generate passive income long after your work is done. I stopped writing articles when I learned how to create websites and ebooks since I would truly own the writing.

But if your new to creating income online one of the best ways to start generating passive income is through writing short articles and submitting them to writing sites. If I were just starting out I would choose Demand Studios to submit articles.

When I wrote the articles the site was named Ehow but Demand Studios has since bought them out. The new article guidelines are a little harder but in my opinion well worth the extra time needed to submit them.

If you really like to write it wouldn’t be too difficult to get your monthly earnings above $1,000. That would mean writing several 100 articles but at a couple of hundred words each that’s not as difficult as it sounds.

How To Retire Before 40

After I wrote the ebook “How To Retire Before 40” I decided to make it into a print version book. I used createspace since they print the book when it is ordered. Whether through my site or Amazon the process is the same.

The sales have been pretty good so I can’t complain. If any of you have an ebook that you have produced I suggest you check out having it made into a physical book at createspace. The process is relatively simple.

You submit your book information, have a book cover made and approved, and submit your ebook for review. Once these steps are completed your ready to order your book proof, review it, and approve it. Your all done and your book is now for sale at createspace, Amazon, and your own sites.

The process is fast and easy to finish. There is nothing like having a print book version of your ebook available for sale.

Little Known Survey Sites That Pay

After writing my “Make $1,000/month Taking Surveys Ebook“, I decided to test and experiment little known survey sites.

Some of these survey sites are relatively new and have less of a following while others have been around a while but few use.

Since I was looking to increase my monthly survey earnings I decided to give them a shot. Here is the list of new survey sites which have paid out when I requested it.

1. MySurvey – This site was formerly known as lightspeed panel and although they have merged with Mysurvey the surveys have gotten better.

They now pay via points that get converted to cash. Once you reach the 1100 point cash out minimum you can convert in to cash via paypal.

The surveys are normally a few 1,000 points each and take less than 15 minutes to complete each. It’s a pretty good survey site.

2. Keynote Surveys – What I like about this site is that they send $10-$20 surveys that take about 30-45 minutes to complete.

Normally they have you check out a online website and do some basic tasks and then give opinions on what you like and don’t like about the website. They also ask on how the site can be improved.

Within 3 days you will receive your reward by e-mail which is usually a Amazon gift certificate code for $10-$20.

3. ACOP – This site has a minimum $10 pay out via check but only has a few surveys per month. There are better survey sites out there but if your looking for a little extra cash this is your site.

4. Focus Foward – This site has a minimum pay out of $20 and the average survey is a few $1 each so it takes a few weeks to get a cash out.

Overall not a bad survey site but there are much better paying sites.

5. Esearch – This site is great since all their surveys are relatively short and paid via paypal for every survey done.

Anotherwords, there is no minimum cash out. Just take each survey and they pay for each survey seperately in cash. Overall a great site.

If you have already signed up for survey sites in my ‘”Make $1,000/month taking surveys Ebook” these sites would be a great way to add some extra survey income.

Why Being Lazy Can Make You Rich

I remember reading a story about Ford Motors Company when they had brought in a efficiency consultant to lower costs. The story said that the consultant went through the entire company looking for cost reductions.

Henry Ford asks him his thoughts and he included an observation that the man across the hall was just sitting there everyday doing nothing.

Henry Ford responded that that man sitting there has come up with new ideas that have made the company millions and that he’s fine as he is.

The point of the story is that so few of us just sit and relax and allow our minds to think of new ideas and business opportunities that we are literally throwing away money being busy all day trying to make money for our bills.

Imagine if you set aside a few hours a week when you could just think up new money making ideas for inventions, businesses, etc. More money is made thinking than doing.

Free Money In Atlantic City

I recently took a trip down to Atlantic City to stroll the boardwalk and do a little gambling at the casinos. While I was there I noticed that many of the casinos are offering $100 free to new players signing up for the casino comp cards.

Comp cards are great since they get you free casino money, merchandise, meals, hotel rooms, etc. If you have never used them before the card looks like a credit card and is inserted each time you play a slot machine. This tracks your play and calculates rewards based on this information.

Since comp cards are free to sign up for you really have nothing to lose by getting them and everything to gain. The free $100 can be cashed out after playing through the original $100 and therefore keep any winnings.

This is really a win-win situation for new players since they won’t lose any money and can possibly walk away much wealthier than before they came to the casinos. Normally the $100 new player money is only available a few times a year for a limited time.

Now that the weather is getting a little nicer it may be worth your time to head to Atlantic City to stroll the boardwalk and do a little free gambling on the house.

Why You Should Invest Opposite of Everyone Else

Being popular and following the crowd may have many benefits but when it comes to investing it’s the worst thing you can do.

By the time everyone is following the investing crowd many of the big profits have already been made. If you really want to make money go opposite of the investing crowd. Think back a few years ago after the stock market crashed and everyone was withdrawling whatever money they had left from the stock market.

Fast forward to today and you can see what a big mistake that action was. For the rare few that stayed in the stock market and looked at it as a opportunity to buy high quality stocks at a discount it paid off in a big way.

The stock market may go higher from here but the big profits have already been made. Instead the beaten down real estate market could be the way to invest. No one wants to own real estate, period. The only people investing in it are the long term investors.

If your looking to flip real estate this is definitely a bad time to invest however if you can buy a fixer upper for little money, rehab it, and rent it you can flip it later down the road when the market improves. Worse case scenario, the real estate market doesn’t fully recover in several years but you still have the rent coming in every month.

When everyone is buying sell,when everyone’s selling buy. More investors have made money doing exactly opposite of the crowd that following it.
