The best way to make money online is to have money coming in automatically. Passive income is surely the best income. But the only way for that to happen is to constantly and regularly add content for your followers, fans and readers. Whether you have social networks or a blog, the key is to write as much articles as you can and post to your social networks often.
The more you do this, overtime your followers increase and so does your customers. Some days I don't even do any work and I still get customers. Just this past Labor Day weekend, I did nothing. I took the whole weekend off including the following holiday and I had customers. I wake up in the morning and have new subscribers and sales and I didn't even do anything. Well, I DID do something but it was a lot of work and effort I did weeks prior. Everything just comes automatically. Somehow and someway, people find my blog and my website and I still work on it everyday. The more you put into it, the more you get out of it.
Hard work pays off in the long run. So go ahead and get your product out there by writing, posting, tweeting or whatever it is to get it out. If you're just starting out now, it will take some time. But within a few months you will be a powerhouse and can afford to just take a day off or two.
