3. Become a webmaster

There are many small businesses in local communities who have not realized the full potential of the online community. Many of these local business people do not even have a website a terrific way to earn a small passive income is to offer to set them up with hosting and build their site for them while charging them a small maintain fee. You can make even more if your clients are wishing to do more with their website and you can charge them on a project basis.

4. Memberships are an excellent way to maintain a monthly income generation online. You find a product or service that you would be helpful or convenient for people to have.
