These Government Bonds trade on the secondary market and can be sold when you need the funds. Do remember that these are long-tenure bonds of 15 to 20 years.

Dividend Income: You can earn dividend income from blue-chip stocks with high dividend yield. Dividends are as good as rental income. The trick here is the price you purchase the stock. Buy undervalued stocks with sound fundamentals. Let’s understand how to calculate dividend yield. Dividend yield is the quantum of cash dividends paid out to shareholders vs the market value per share.

Dividend Yield Ratio = Dividend Per Share/Market Value Per Share 

Let’s say a Company with a stock price of Rs 100 declares a dividend of Rs 10 a share. The dividend yield turns out to be 10/100 = 10%. Invest in high-dividend yield stocks and earn passive income.

Affiliate Marketing: This is a great way of earning passive income. You simply promote other people’s products through an affiliate network (Say your website).

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

Merchant: The merchant is also called the seller, brand, retailer or vendor. This is basically the party which creates the product. This could be a big company or a single individual. They simply have a product to sell.

The Affiliate: The affiliate party is also called the publisher. They can be an individual or a company. This is where the marketing happens. The affiliate convinces potential customers on the value of the merchant’s products. His job is to make sure the customer actually buys it. This could be done by running a review blog on the merchant’s products.

The Consumer: This is the final line in the value chain. The person who must buy the product. The affiliate markets the product through social network, billboards, search engine through content marketing on a blog.

You can do affiliate marketing even without a blog. You can use sites like Medium, Quora or LinkedIn Publishing. Build a Niche and create a bond. Personally check out the products to avoid complaints if the quality falls short.

Write an ebook: Ebooks are an excellent way of earning passive income. The income you get depends on the quality of the book, how well you craft the message and how the audience is targeted.
