Passive Online Income Streams

When I first started earning online more than a year ago, I only had what I considered then as my "active online income." I thought that earning around $200 a month from writing paid posts in my blogs was a good enough source of "active online income" and I was satisfied with it for about four or five months. I seriously believed then that the average blogger like me can only earn as much as $200-$300 a month. But then I slowly got bored with the $200 a month income from paid posts in my blogs so I started thinking about other ways of earning online. I started reading up on topics about how to earn from Google Adsense because I heard that some guys are pulling thousands of dollars a month from it. I read and read and read and experimented and experimented and experimented until I came upon the formula that worked for me. I started earning bigger each month from Adsense and I lost interest in paid postings--it has lost its glitter in my eyes. Of course Adsense became my main source of active online income. A few months ago I have broken into the realm of $1,000 a month of Adsense income. That is what I consider active online income now. I know that most regular office guys can only dream about this kind of monthly income. But even if I am earning a lot from that I still try to find other ways to earn more, that is why I have what I now consider as my passive online income streams, I consider them passive because I really do not consciously count the money that I can earn from them, I just let them be there and hope that when I check on them every once in a while when I remember them, I see a few cents trickling in; an extra few cents a day is always welcome. I have as of now three sources of passive online income : CPALead, Infolinks, and Adbrite.

So far the best performing of the three sources of passive income I mentioned is CPALead. I applied for an account with them on October 5, I got approved on October 6 and I started earning on the 7th. So far so good, and I will receive my first payment from them on the 30th of November (he he that is just two weeks away). Here is the screen shot of what I will be getting from CPALead on the 30th of this month:

I am really tempted to click the "Get Paid Early" button but I am holding my self back because I want this money to come in when my Adsense earnings comes in also on the 30th; I want a big bang you know. I think I will elevate CPLead into "active income" because I am really making good money from it. If I will give more time to it, I know that I can double the amount shown in the screen shot above. Actually, I started taking CPALead seriously, two days ago I built two sites that are designed to allow me to make more money from CPALead. Here is the screen shot of my "month-to-date" CPALead earnings:

I was not able to really look into my CPALead-earning websites in the last two weeks but still they earned quite good. I guess I have to add more sites for my CPALead ventures and make some tweakings here and there. My goal is to earn at least $1000 every month from CPALead alone. I guess it is easy to achieve this, by then CPALead would become a source of active income for me, but as of now I still consider it a passive source of income.

The next source of passive online income for me is Infolinks. It is really very easy, no sweat at all, I just placed Infolinks code in 2 blogs and here is what I have been earning in the last three months:

The next one is Adbrite, this is something that I have forgotten about for some months then I remembered it lately and checked what it has brought me in the many months that have passed. This is what I got:
I will receive my first check from Adbrite on the first week of January 2010, it would be around $200 because I now average $12 per week (lol!) in Adbrite and I am now in the $180 mark, so by the end of December I'd be around $210 or more.

Passive online income can bring a smile to your face, especially when the money is already in your pocket. Now i am looking for more ways of getting more passive income streams, I have just been accepted by Adscend Media and I guess I'd be earning good from them. Now I need to end this post because I have to build two new websites for my Adscend Media ventures. I'll give you an update later about my performance with Adscend Media.

@Pchi, am not superhuman he he he I quit my day job, I got tired of it. I came to a point where I have to choose between my boring day job and my online ventures. Of course I chose the one where the future looks brighter. I don't want to grow old working in an office, working with boring people. You know, what I earn online is many many time bigger than what I get every month from my boring day job.

@Anonymous, I haven't heard about them.

@Calvin, okay yan kung may premium content ka, tapos before maview or maenjoy ng visitors yung content merong gateway na haharang sa kanila, konting survey. Every survey means money to the publisher. Maganda sya, halos hahabol sya sa Adsense ko, di ko pa nga tinututukan masyado.

@ark oo bai, niresign nako, bored na gyud ko kaayo sa ako day job. sa among mga empleyado didto, ako ang isa sa pinakataas ug sweldo, pero mas dako gyud ako income sa web eh. "Shock" gud tong isa nako ka kauban pagresign nako he he he abi nilag napirate ko sa uban mao ni resign ko, wala gyud sila kasabot kung unsa ang web eh, dili nila magets ang dagan.

CPAlead has been great for me too. After starting only one week ago, I have $350 in revenue. Definetly give them a try.

You are certainly brave in quitting your day job, but you seem motivated for success, so good luck!

Come to my site also (if you want).

@Rewardz4Surveys Yeah, CPAlead is great income source, and since this post I earned more than $7000 from CPAlead, that is in the span of 6 months.
