10 Sure Ways To Build A Passive Income in 2022

Gone are the days when the husband is the sole provider of the family. Gone are the days when people rely on one source of income.

As technology evolves, people become wiser and more practical. People continue to look for ways to earn additional income to sustain their family’s needs --- and even wants.

If you've been looking for a business or passive income ideas, here are 10 ways to build passive income over time with little to no effort at all.

1. Affiliate marketing

Most businesses nowadays have already ventured into an affiliate marketing strategy to bring in more customers and drive more sales, so there is a great potential that you could earn big from being an affiliate marketer where you refer the business to another person, may it be through a personal approach, by email, through social media, or through websites and blogs.

Check this quick guide about affiliate marketing perfect for beginners.

2. Dividend-paying investments

I don’t specifically know other types of investment that pay dividends but I actually have one called common shares with First Community Cooperative that pays dividends every year aside from my regular savings account that pays 2% interest annually.

I think it is also a good source of passive income and probably one of the secrets of other people why they are able to live on their dreams.

3. Sell eBooks

Another way to earn a passive income is by selling eBooks. This has been one of the techniques utilized by blog owners, podcasters, and coaches. They then list their eBooks on their own websites, on Amazon, or on eBay.

Here's how you can make your own website with little investment and even without coding skills so you can start promoting your own eBooks.

4. Make Youtube videos

You probably know many YouTubers or Vloggers out there flexing about their income from Youtube. Well, they have good reason to do so as they’re really earning big with thousand to millions of views on their videos.

You, too, could earn from Youtube with your videos. Just select what topic you would want to make a video with and upload them on Youtube. Once you’ve gained enough numbers of views and subscribers, you can then apply to Google Adsense to display ads on your videos.

5. Make a blog

If you love writing, then, making a blog is perfect for you. You don’t even have to worry about the website to host your blog as there are a lot of blogging platforms out there. You also don’t have to know about web designing as most blogging platforms have a website builder and offer free templates for you to use on your blog.

All you really have to remember when creating a blog is to write compelling and useful content to the readers so they keep on coming back to your blog and eventually bring valuable traffic.

You could write about your hobbies, your lifestyle, your travels, and anything you know about. For a start, you can make a blog in Blogger, WordPress, Wix, or GoDaddy. You can then monetize your blog with Google Adsense and other affiliate programs.

Here's how you can monetize your blog with Google Adsense.

6. Rent out your properties or anything valuable

May it be a bed space, a room, an apartment, or a car, you can earn limitless income from renting out your property. You could make a local ad regarding your properties for rent or you could go list your home in Airbnb to attract international clients who are looking for a place to stay during their travels.

Also if you have bought your own wedding gowns, suits, and accessories, you could also have them rented out just like what I did.

7. Sell photos online

If you love taking photos, then, selling photos online could be a great way to earn additional income out of your hobby.

There are numerous websites that allow photographers and hobbyists to sell their photos at a reasonable price like Shutterstock, Pexels, and Pixabay. It’s high time you scan your camera’s gallery and see if you could find marketable photos there.

Just recently, I have discovered that Canva, a famous graphic designing company in Australia accepts contributors and content creators to sell their photos and other graphic elements on their platform - and I am a contributor to the platform.

If you are a photographer, it's high time you consider selling your eyecatching photos to the platforms mentioned above.

8. Invest in vending machines

If there is one thing I would be investing in the future, then, it is with vending machines. I have been actually toying with this idea and have been discussing with my husband why we should be investing in this type of business.

What I really like about vending machines is that they just operate on their own without having to install a person in the area. The income may not be as big as other businesses, but it could surely help you out in times of emergency.

9. Take advantage of cashback and rewards

I have been hearing and reading about cashback and rewards from big businesses and even tried twice with Gcash and Lazada but I really haven’t recognized their advantages until recently.

I just realized that taking advantage of this cashback and rewards can actually give you a passive income. If you shop online, have bills to pay, dine with high-end restaurants, then, it’s high time you get cashback and rewards either through a rewards card or through an app. Not only that, but you could also use the referral system of these big businesses to earn instant cash.

There are also some apps that reward you for doing tasks like viewing videos, reading articles, and playing games. The rewards could be in a form of points, bitcoins, satoshis, or real money.

10. Install money-making mobile apps

Do you know that there are a lot of money-making apps you can install to build a passive income? From game apps to video and news apps, you have a lot of options to choose from depending on your interests and hobbies.

Check here the list of money-making apps that pay you instantly through Coins.ph or GCash.


There are actually a lot of ways to build a passive income and eventually earn additional earnings for your family. You really just have to look around you and see what you could possibly do.
