Updated on May 21, 2012

We all want to have easy street and be able to sit back and sip our margaritas and just watch the money flow in. Unfortunately, that is not the case for most of us. We have to continue to work hard and create those opportunities to generate the most income for us. Once we have the hard work behind us, we can then enjoy the fruits of or labor. There is many popular ways to start generating passive income from the web let’s talk about a couple of them.

1. Everyone has heard or has seen a form of multilevel marketing. True this is a style of marketing that is not for everyone. It requires a substantial amount of effort upfront before you will enjoy any type of rewards from it. That is exactly the point once you have established yourself as a prominent place on the MML the people that you have helped to follow you are the ones who are going to generate income but also a substantial amount for you. So, if you have experience in MML or this type of sales you can generate an exceptionally gratifying income.

2. The next most popular form of Passive income generation on the web is in the form of affiliate marketing. The main reason this type of marketing is so attractive is because you do not even need to have any money up front to start. Many websites like Click Bank, Commission Junction and others are free to sign up for anyone. You can promote as many products as you want as often as you like and there are many ways in which they can help you market such products. Again there is much work to be done in the initial setup process but once it starts it will produce a satisfying passive, income.

3. Another way to start generating passive income is through the use of sale lead generation. Many companies or individuals will pay you top dollar to refer them business. Many of these leads are generated through the use of free newsletters or a free product. Once you have the information it is giving to the company, and you are paid a commission for every successful sales lead. But, it can be hard work looking for just the right type of sales. You also may need to spend a significant amount of time getting a list together.

4. Online PPC advertising is another popular method to generate income. You can create a blog or website with revealing information. Promote that website or blog and people will come to it for that information. When they come you can display ads related to your products, which people will, click on. With every click, those websites will generate money for the owner. Wit each click being a different cost it can be inconsistent from month to month but is an excellent way to have continues income of some kind.
