Freelancers are known to be hardworking hustlers and always looking at making more money with their free time. The quality about them though, is that they are interested in the business of working for themselves, at their own free time and making money out of that. Part of doing that is submitting to more job boards and coming up with out of the box strategies for marketing in order to find more work. However, freelancers do not really work for themselves. They have bosses, even though they might not be visible. They are the bosses because the work freelancers do comes from them, and freelancers often have to bend to the boss’s rules and meet their expectation. Only thing falling short from making free lancing like a true office job is that these bosses do not give them visible performance evaluations per se, though this is slowly changing.
Some good news to free lancers is one on Passive income. It is a great way to get some more money in your pocket, without necessarily forsaking your freelancing job. It is a way to make money repeatedly without any additional work. Passive income is all about you, though at time it may be hard to see.
One way of earning passive income is by sharing knowledge, through releasing books on this site. Some of the books that I have released here are the Guerilla Guide and One Man Army books.
You can share the knowledge you have acquired so far by writing about the tips that you have gotten in your work, and sharing it on the internet. For example, one can write up a guide for beginners guiding them on how to go about what you do. You can also decide to go another direction by writing about your passions, whatever they may be; be they painting or sports. Once you equip your book with rich and adequate information, you will be able to make some decent money out of this venture and be able to stock up some good and decent level of income, passively.
just think about it, might you have files that are still in your computer at the moment, that were supposed to be used by the client but were never really utilized in production? Or might you have files that were posted though created for fun purposes only? These files need not sit idle; they can be used to generate passive income. Have a look at sites such as istockphoto, graphicriver etc and you will be able to see how people were able to upload premium design file and sell them. Moreover, if you have your own blog, you can sell these designs and keep all the profit for yourself as income.
Web Hosting Recommendations
I have currently implemented this as a way to generate passive income in my business, and it has done so with virtually no work at all. Some money can be made if you are a web designer. In case your clients do not have hosting set up, you can recommend them to one; a hosting company, and get paid as a middle man for the referral. For example, I recommend HostGator for hosting and receive payment each time someone signs up under my associate link. I can recommend them comfortably because I use the same for my own websites, and can vouch for them as a good and credible company.
