You may have heard about my website, CoffeeDetective.com. It’s all about making and enjoying gourmet coffee.
As you may also know, this site is a source of passive income for me. Since I launched it back in 2007 it has generated over $200,000 in income. That’s pretty amazing for what is essentially a hobby site.
But if you think that’s amazing, consider the story of one of the people who took my How to Write Your Own Money-Making Websites program. (I created the program to show other people how they could do the same as I did with my coffee site.)
Her name is Nancy Hearn and the topic of her website is…water.
When I first heard about her choice of topic, I must admit I was a little skeptical. I mean, how much can you actually write about water? And how many people are going to want to spend more than a minute or so reading about water?
Happily, I was dead wrong about Nancy’s choice of topic.
She launched her site in January of 2010, and today it is earning her between $1,000 and $3,000 a month. All in passive income. Not bad. She is still adding more content to the site, so her revenues should keep climbing. Plus she has an idea for a second site she wants to develop.
Her plan? To generate all the income she needs from her money-making websites.
That’s a pretty nice way to make a living, particularly when you are writing on a topic you really care about.
So how about you? Do you have a topic you feel strongly about and would like to share with others through a website of your own? And would you like that website to make a big contribution to your monthly income?
At the best of times, creating a source of additional, passive income is a wonderful thing. When times aren’t so rosy, with worries about our jobs and retirement, the idea of being able to make money from a website becomes a lot more attractive, and important.
For myself, I love the fact that my websites are 100% my own. I’m the boss. Nobody can fire me. Nobody tells me what to do, or when. I’m in control, and I know that if I continue creating great content for my sites, that passive income will keep on coming.
