Let’s get to it.

1. Write guest posts

Guest blogging is a tactic where you write for other blogs. In return, the editor/site owner will usually allow you to link back to your site.

2. Promote content in relevant online communities

Relevant online communities are places where your target audience hangs out on the Web.

You can find these communities everywhere:

  • Facebook groups;
  • Forums. etc

Answer questions on Quora 

3. Answer questions on Quora/Nairaland

Quora is a Q&A site where anyone can ask questions or answer them.

That means you can respond to existing questions in your niche, establish your authority, and generate some traffic for your website along the way. Or similar sites

4. Appear on podcasts

Podcasts have become one of the hottest marketing channels. Plenty of podcasts means they need guests. Pitch to be that guest!

To put it in short, passive income just means the money you’re making without any additional effort on your part. You set up systems and let them run in the background, making you money and freeing up your time.

5. Collaborate with other brands to tap into their audiences

So why not work together to cross-promote to each others audiences?
