1) OWN WEBSITE
Setting up a website with an attractive theme for visitors can lead to gradually building up a sizable passive income.
You’ll need to promote your site, but if it appeals to a wide audience, owning a site will lead to funding – for example, through affiliate marketing.
If you’re good at writing and you’re involved in an interesting field, why not take advantage of it?
Writing an ebook, which you then make available for sale online (either on your website or on Amazon) for a certain amount of money is another great form of passive income.
Naturally, books in English score particularly well, but you can do well in other languages too.
3) GET A SHORT-TERM JOB
Short-term work is one of the most popular ways to earn extra money. This is especially true for young people, and for good reason.
It provides enough flexibility, but it also puts much-needed money in your pocket.
You can search for a job on online portals or look around your local area. If you are looking for a part-time job for your child, read here.
