Earning passive income is one of the most favourable sources of income for a freelance designer. The only limit you have is your imagination. As designers, we can literally sell anything we can think of. There are many online marketplaces that allow you to sell website templates, newsletter templates, fonts, logo kits, and so much more.
In this post, I’ll discuss how to earn passive income. It’s a great feeling when you are out, having a peaceful night’s sleep or even sitting on the toilet. Or you sell online courses and see the total earned at the end of the month. There are so many ways to earn passive income.
With all sources of passive income, there is always going to be a small amount of work to nurture your passive income streams. It’s not something you can just put out in the world and completely forget. You will need to provide support for your products and continue to create new products. This helps you to stay at the forefront of people’s minds and shows you are constantly updating your online stores.
