Hi Pat, Its great you share part of the actual income, but it would be really helpful if you gave a total breakdown of each income stream to see how much each stream generates in realation to the others. Even better would be a start date to profit chart. Thanks sir great work as always.

Dennis Benedictos says:

Hi Pat, congrats on your success! Been following you almost from the very beginning of your Smart Passive Income journey. Thanks for the tips! All 9 strategies are very inspiring to me as I have followed your progress when you initiated each one of those in previous years! I have started working on a youtube channel where we publish new content each week. The strategy is build an audience by publishing new content each week for the first 6 months. Then as we work on our next 6 months to start applying some affiliate marketing strategies.

Musketeer says:

Wow great content bro! Just finished setting up my blog, can’t wait to show it to you soon 😀

naba baruah says:

Hi Pat… Big fan of you and i follow you on every platform.. Please summarise at the end of your videos…I think that would make the videos more awesome…

Saving Your Future says:

Great insights here. I used Createspace to publish my book as well. It is passive income, but definitely slow going. I probably make $2-$4 per month on my book. Maybe $300 since 2013.

Ayman Gomaa says:

that was some badass innformation G

Abdul Ghani says:

your whole business is misleading. I’ve been following you since you’re a blogger from 2012. now you’re still working. how passive is that?

H Pyle says:

Pat, you are so inspiring!

suzanne bernard says:

Always very interesting and inspiring Pat! Thank you.

ThePerpetualBoy says:

great content! i’m hooked! keep it up Pat!

Yi-Cheng Li says:

I didn’t think about the idea of creating sth and the not updating kind of blog or page! (The security one in your case) Good ideas !!!

Christian Jay Noble says:

H Patt…Is architecture a good niche to make a blog too monetized?

Soul Calls Infinity says:

easy to listen to– thanks for the ideas!!

Nisha Vashisht says:

great video, very informative, thanks a lot for sharing

Justin Ashcraft says:

Great content! I wrote an ebook a couple years ago that still brings in money. Not a ton but it’s all 100% profit at this point.

Markus Dunk says:

For me the Best Business Model in 2018 is Merch by Amazon. I just got started with it and document my journey form 0 to 1 million here on Youtube 🙂

iTiamo plays says:

Another way one can generate passive income is through cryptocurrency. There is a phenomena in the crypto-world called “masternodes”. These are decentralised nodes distributed on the world performing certain tasks for a blokchain. These maternodes get paid a small part of the inflation of the blockchain. Normally, you would need a lot of technical knowledge to set something like this up, but luckily a new platform has come out called “GINcoin” which allows anyone, regardless of technical abilities, to launch a masternode in minutes. This is my preferred way to reap passive income, and it can stack well into the thousands. A GINcoin masternode right now costs $4,400 and nets you $1100 a month.

No usable information

Chris Gilmour says:

This is one of my favorites in a while. As I have been following your work and learning from you for a couple years now, this really helps to layout the diverse business model that supports your financial success. I think affiliate sales will be the stream I use first. I would love to try and create a really good niche site one day as well. I think that would be a fun challenge but will stay on the back burner while I work on the project I started in your “Smart From Scratch” Course. Thanks again!

Thomas Wolfe says:

Excellent content mate.


I enjoy how you break everything down and give examples! Thanks so much for sharing this information.

Rafi Dean says:

Great tips Pat. thanks for sharing. I’ll start thinking about setting up an e-commerce/authority website to kick off!

Paul Kozar says:

Almost no one talks about passive aggressive income.

Jim Neely says:

Always… Always excellent information.

seac57 says:

Great video Pat! Very informative. Most interested in the ideas of teaching things that you don’t already know. I’m working on an outsourced model to supply marketing and admin services to solopreneurs (for things I don’t do myself). Good ideas to help. Thanks.

This is just superb, I been tryin to find out about “income streams for bloggers” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Qonmily Passive Formality – (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? Ive heard some super things about it and my work buddy got excellent results with it.

Miki Ram says:
