13 Residual Income Business Ideas And Opportunity

Residual income is a way of making passive income or income that comes in, even when you are not working. The goal here is to have a business that needs only a few hours of management per week, a business that runs almost on autopilot.

Even, If you take a vacation for a week, you still keep making money, You don't have to constantly be working every hour just to get pay. That is the whole point of the residual income business, and I will give you 13 version of doing this business idea

1. Kindle Publishing 

Which is publishing an ebook on Amazon? You go to, is just a page that looks like this below, you create an account and you upload book.

You can publish as many books as you want, and by publishing your book on Amazon, you get the most amount of traffic and the most possible buyers, all on one platform through Amazon.

You can get up to 70% royalty, not only in your country but in countless other countries. You don't have to be the best selling author, to make a lot of money doing this, you can sell specific non-fiction books that help people with their certain problems, 

2. Blogging

Blogging allows you to make money from a lot of different things, but the great thing about blogging is you don't have to constantly be checking on advertising, you don't have to constantly do a thing to get traffic.

You can publish an article a week, and that article, every time you publish it, would get you traffic for years if you know what you are doing.

Each blog post you do, as it ranks in search engine, would get you traffic for years to come, as you get more and more traffic all the time with people around the world in different time zone looking for this thing that your blog cover, you will constantly be making money from ads, course sale, ebook sales, and whatever you're doing to monetize your blog 24 hours a day.

3. Stock Photographic

If you're a photographer, you can sell your photo online and make royalty just like an ebook, you can go to a site like, there is another one out there also

You can upload your stock photographic and make commission basically from people downloading the right to use your images.

Many businesses need images for a blog post, videos, software, books, all kind of different thing. There is constantly company paying for photos on places like

You just have to be one of the photographers that upload their images to the site and get paid every time people use your images.

4. Youtube Channel

Every time you make a youtube video, you can make money from that youtube video, and it might only take you a few hours to make it. If you are good at this, you might get thousands of views or millions of views per video.

You can monetize your video with ads like most people do, or you can sell courses, selling some product, or sending people to blog, whatever you're doing to monetize it, you would be constantly getting more and more traffic as you publish more videos.

But you can publish a video a week, maybe just to spend a few hours a week working, and this videos would make you money for days, weeks, month, even years to come, with a little effort.

If you know what you're doing, youtube can make you a ton of passive income, and that is why there are so many youtube millionaires.

5. Affiliate Marketing

Is a great way to make residual income, because there is a very high value to affiliate marketing. You help vendors sell their products and they paid you a commission. 

But you don't have to deal with the creation of the product, or customer support, host a product, even own website. You don't have to do any of those things, you just need to go to a site like Clickbank, which is the number one affiliate marketplace I recommend.

You pick a product that you passionate about, if you know nothing about fitness, you hate fitness, don't sell the product. Select from the categories, make sure to check out their sales page and ask yourself if you're tempted to buy the product.

Find something you know something about, that has a really good sale page, you can promote this thing through social media, blogs, video, presentation, books, you can even do pay advertising. 

You would get a commission every time people buy this product that others made through your link. If you have different forms of traffic through social, media, video, blog, etc, you could be making a lot of money from affiliate marketing even when you're sleeping.

6. Etsy Store (Art Upload)

You would see a lot of people who sell art that is ship to you. Etsy Store sell a physical product, they have a side of Etsy that allow people to download what they buy, you can download the art and then print it yourself in the size that you want after you pay for it,

You pay $18.00 to buy these, and then you instantly download it to your computer. If you do a business like this, where you make your art downloadable, you can have people downloading your art 24 hours a day in all different countries,

All you have to do is to just make new pieces of art, maybe once a week or once a month, just to keep having fresh content and build more income.

7. Udemy Courses

These are just a way to sell information, it's a way to teach people how to do things. You're basically just an instructor on the internet.

But you don't have to instruct people live, you're not like a teacher, you're somebody who records a video on how to do things step by step, you just upload them and sell the courses on

They have over 12 million students, and they buy this course on specific things they want to learn about, and then they go through them on their own time. All you have to do is to upload your course whenever you want, and you could make a lot of money from different countries at different time

8. Podcast

You can check out the few podcasts I mentioned above, for example, The Joe Rogan Experience show has a lot of sponsors. Before and after the show he would mention the sponsor, and this sponsor would pay for those slots.

He makes a lot of passive income because he gets paid from them, and people are constantly listening to his podcast on their own time around the world by using the podcast app.

9. Software

Software, of course, is something people can download to their computer. If you want to create a software business, one great resource would be

You're not going to spend a lot of time on this business after you have the software created and marketing funnel in place.

10. Music

If you're a musician, you might sell your own CD or album on

Premiumbeat allows you to sell music for royalty, you created the music and they have to buy the right for it. Much like a stock photographer business would be, you make the beat and you can upload it to a site like the premium beat and you will get paid when people pay for the right to use it.

Whether they want to use it in their video, movie, presentation, party, whatever it's, people would pay for the right to use your music.
