Hi there income streamers! As I said yesterday, my goal is to eventually reach financial independence, meaning that I am hoping to set up enough passive income to cover my basic needs. Once I do that, a whole world of opportunities will open up to me, as I theoretically won’t have to work anymore; I can work for the sake of fulfillment and growth rather than survival. The main way I will do this is by investing in the stock and bond markets through some tax deferred accounts and some post-tax accounts if I have some left over; I’ll be sharing the specifics of this plan with you all later today!
For now, though, I wanted to talk to you all about some passive income streams that require no invested capital: phone and laptop earning. I first got into the world of passive income and blogging by discovering /r/beermoney and then realising that people could benefit from detailed guides on which services were scams and which ones paid, and on how to maximise earning while minimising effort. Over the past two years, I have tried dozens of beermoney services, but over time few have stuck with me as consistent earners worth the hassle. Here they are below:
- I have reduced the number of lockscreens on my phone from 4 to 3, due to SlideJoys decreased earnings. They now include Adme, Smores, and Fronto. I may get rid of Fronto as well, due to their app’s buggy behaviour. Use my Amde code, vPTmE0i4BX, and Smores code U0GZQR, for bonuses. At the moment, the lockscreens earn me about $10 per month – the equivalent to owning $750 worth of stock paying a 4% quarterly dividend! I’ll take that kind of earning any day.
- Robinhood is a fee-free stock trading app that is a great way to put those lockscreen earnings to work! I wrote up a brief description of some strategies a few days ago if you’d like some tips to get started. Use my link for a free stock!
- Lastly, ebesucher is still chugging away for me, earning $10 a month without any work on my part. It is a surfbar site, where you open a tab in their site and then minimise it and let it run in the background. Ebesucher will automatically visit various paid advertisers who are trying to get their page visits up, but you don’t need to actually look at the sites that the tab visits. Easy passive income!
Those are the earning methods I’ve found useful enough to keep on my phone and laptop lately. How are you all earning side income? Do you know of any apps or sites I should check out? Let me know in the comments, and as always, stay earning streamers!
