Keep reading and find out how you can start to build passive income streams, using free methods.
Affiliate marketing and search engine optimization (SEO), are some of the most passive ways that anyone can earn money because the work you do now can still pay you 4 years from now.
If you’ve ever searched for a product review on Google, you might have noticed that the review was written in 2016 or so, even if you are searching for it
The review just sites there and the owner of the site makes money if the product is still selling.
The reason the site is ranking on Google is because of SEO.
It stands for search engine optimization, and it is when we optimize sites for certain keywords that people type into the search bar looking for something.
Affiliate marketing is passive because as an affiliate marketer, you don’t deal with customer support or anything that vendors have to deal with.
all you do as an affiliate is send visitors to the sales page.
if they decide to buy what you are recommending you get paid a commission.
so affiliate marketing is a great way to set up an autopilot business because you only do the job once.
and that is to create the content to promote the product, but more on that later.
The automated Money making system I am about to teach you is old school and has been around for more than a decade but it still works.
It does involve work, but if you are willing to spend some time doing this, and you have the patience for it then you can create a passive income business that makes you money every day, and you can do this for free.
truth be told, it is better to do this with a start-up capital of about $100 but this is a guide on how to do it for free.
I will leave a little section at the bottom about the paid alternative to this if you are interested in finding out more, but now we will get into the method of doing this for free.
This method involves starting free blogs to promote affiliate products on them.
We choose niches that are very focused, also called “micro-niche”, and we find low competition keywords and products.
Doing affiliate marketing keyword research makes it easier for us to bring visitors to our free blogs.
How do you get paid for blogging?
You display ads or promote products with an affiliate link to your blog visitors, and every time they click on an ad or click on your affiliate link to go and buy a product you recommend on your blog, you get paid a commission!
The commissions vary depending on the price of the products and the percentage you get for referring a customer or the Cost per click advertisers pay for visitors you send them.
It also depends on your niche, and what you do but you can choose yourself, what type of offers you want to promote.
once you’ve created a blog and you’ve put content on it to promote an affiliate offer, it can make money for you on autopilot if the keyword or product is easy enough to compete for.
the more free blogs you set up, the more money you will make.
this is a numbers game, and it requires some work but it works and it is well worth it if you want to create a truly passive income for your self.
The first thing you need for this is to create accounts with some affiliate networks where you can select products to sell.
It is free to join affiliate programs for the most part. Here are some of my favorites.
It will let you see the power of your competitor’s websites, so you can figure out if you have a chance of beating them.
I will say that any keyword with at least 2 pages of the front page of Google, with less then 20 DA, especially if it is in the top 5 results, is indicative of a very easy keyword to compete for.
In this example image, I searched Google for the keyword how to make 1000 a month online from scratch, which is a long tail keyword.
Moz toolbar is showing us the PA and DA.
None of the first 10 pages on google have optimized their sites for “how to make 1000 a month online from scratch”
It is not in the titles or URLs and there are week pages ranking for it, so it would be easy to get to the front page for this keyword.
You want to find keywords that people search for but with week competition.
the keyword tools are not accurate for the most part, they only give you estimates of searchers per month often times there are lots of more searchers then the tools say and sometimes it is less so use them to guide your decisions about what keywords you choose.
I would recommend that you pick 3-5 keywords for each product you plan to sell.
FREE blogging platforms to set up your automated Money making system
Next, you need a blog where you can promote the affiliate product.
Since you are doing this for free you can start a new blog for each and every affiliate product you promote.
there are lots of free platforms to use and they allow affiliate marketing.
here are some you can use for this if you want to.
You can start a free blog. Name it what you like but it is best if the name is related to the niche that your chosen affiliate product belongs to.
For example, if the product is about forex software, then day trading or something related could be your domain name.
Create Content For Your Auto-Pilot Business
Now you need to create content that can do the work for you on autopilot.
If you write a product review and publish it, it can sit there and make you money for years and you don’t have to do anything with it once it ranks.
You can look at the “affiliate resources” page of the product and see what material the vendor is providing the affiliates.
sometimes, there are review copies that you can rewrite and use yourself.
you can also contact the vendor and ask them for a review copy if you want to.
or you can just go to Google, type in your product name and look at the reviews that already rank on google.
research te product and write your own review, in your own words.
You can use an extension to see how long the posts are, on your competitor’s sites, and write something equally long.
here is an extension you can use.
it will increase your likelihood of ranking on the front page of google if your review is about as good as the top 5 competitors.
Don’t worry, you will find that most review sites write articles that anyone can beat.
Include your affiliate link with a call to action.

If they click it and go and purchase the product, you get paid a commission.
Promote Your Content To Get Indexed And Increase Search Ranking
In order to get your new free blog indexed on Google search engine quicker, you can go to other people’s blogs in your own niche and leave a comment in their comment section with a link back to your own blog.
it helps Google find your blog, and follow the link to your site and then crawl your blog and pages to see what content is on your page and what to rank you for.
otherwise, it can take weeks to get indexed on google. so you can go to other people’s blogs and leave comments.
It will also help you go up in rankings, and gain more authority. blog comment links are very week links but they do help.
Links are what give websites power and authority to rank for keywords. the more links a site has from other websites, the higher it ranks for keywords.
you can leave 5 to 10 comments on related blogs if you want to. It will increase your likelihood of ranking for your keywords.
you can leave more comments than that. in fact, once you’ve left a comment and it has gotten accepted by the blog owner, it can sit there for years to come and people who visit the blog can see your comment and click the link to go and see your blog and buy from you.
so it is an additional stream of visitors that can buy from your blog on autopilot.
Keep building your passive income streams.
Like I said earlier, this is a numbers game so the more product reviews you put out, the more you will benefit from it later on.
It can take weeks, even months for google to understand what to rank you for, and you never know what products or keywords will be winners. so the more you publish, the more success you will have.
if you have 1 review out there, it might sell once per month, or once per year, or never.
if you have 10 reviews, some of them might never sell anything, some might sell every now and then.
if you have 50 reviews out there, some will sell, som will not but the volumes averages it out to a sell per day or every other day.
and this is an autopilot money making system that will snowball. the more you put out there, the more you make. you can even outsource articles (pay someone to write for you) later on.
so keep selecting products to promote.
keep creating new blogs.
keep writing content, and choose easy low competition keywords.
if you do 1 per day then you will have close to 100 product reviews 3 months from now and what you do today can make you money passively one year from now, two years from now, even beyond that.
Paid alternatives to earn money on the internet on autopilot
I told you earlier that I would give you a method of doing it with start-up capital.
The thing is that if you build blogs you don’t really own, you cant sell them in the future.
if you build a blog or blogs that you won, you can sell them. even for 10 times their monthly earnings.
If you run your own blog then you can publish your reviews on 1 blog and build it up to something massive that makes you lots of money later on, passively.
I use Siteground to run my blogs. it cost about 100 $ per year for hosting, and domain registration costs about under 10$ per year. I use Dynadot.com to register new domain names.
email marketing is a very powerful tool to use for this because you can set up an email sequence that does all the work for you. it is automatic, and every subscriber you get will go through a sequence of emails where you promote products and make money via email.
once you have set up your funnel, it is set and you don’t have to worry about it.
people come to your blog, they opt into your email list and automatically receive emails that you’ve made, and go through your promotions and buy from your affiliate links.
it cost about $15 per month on the low end but it is worth it because your email list will become your most valuable asset. you can send out promotions to your email list and make money whenever you want, once it has gotten bigger.
So starting your own blog that you own, and building it up to make it profitable, and collecting emails and sending emails through an autoresponder that does marketing for you is the best way to earn money online on autopilot.
This is not a get rich quick scheme.
It requires work and patience but it works, and the more reviews you put out there, the more likely you are to make money doing this and it becomes a truly passive income stream for you over time because it is low maintenance. you can publish a review today, go and leave 10 comments on blogs and forget about it.
two months from now you can get a sale of $40 to your Clickbank account and it was this product that you had forgotten all about.
some products can sell every other day, it depends on luck also.
so the more reviews you have to more consistently you will sell.
if you commit to it, give it some time, and you dedicate one to three hours per day to do this, you will have money coming in in a not to distant future.
