5 Easy Ways for Passive Income During Lockdown: Passive Income Ideas
Updated: Sep 9
Yes, unfortunately Sydney is in lockdown again. It sucks for sure, but not on all aspects. Staying at home means there’s more time and space to work on other projects, and passive income can be a great way to generate extra cash flow during the lockdown. If you have never come across this concept before, this lockdown might be the perfect opportunity to try out something new, easy and money-making. With passive income, you will be able to access more cash, more money to spend, provide, or just for another layer of security. If you are saving up for anniversaries, building wealth, or trying to meet your retirement goals earlier, passive income will be very much helpful.
Now the question is, how do you earn passive income when you stay at home during this lockdown?
Passive Income Ideas:
Create YouTube Channels
1. AFFILIATE MARKETING
Pros: If you have a website, blog or a great following on your social media sites, affiliate marketing is a good way to earn you money for referring products & services from other brands in your sites. The affiliate site will provide you a specific link that you can place in your sites, and you can earn a percentage of commissions every time a purchase is made via the link.
Cons: Affiliate marketing has recently become a very popular idea.There comes its downside: the competitiveness. It also means that you will need to dedicate lots of time and effort to maintain a blog/site with great traffic and site domains can be expensive.
2. CREATE YOUTUBE CHANNELS
Pros: If you have a specific field of expertise or interests, you can always start your YouTube channel at any time. There’s no limit to what you can post on your channels, whether it is about travelling, Star Wars, League of Legends or cooking lessons, as long as it interests you, go for it! You can earn income from sponsored advertisements.
Cons: YouTube is again another highly competitive space. You might want to pursue a very niche market to easily stand out. You might also need to dedicate lots of effort and time into the content generation process where there’s no 100% guarantee on the outcome.
Pros: Investing is not a new concept. There’s always the choice for you to invest in stocks, bonds, cryptocurrencies, NFTs...and many more. It is probably one of the most common thread to passive income, and the return is one of the highest.
Cons: The greater return comes with greater risks. Where there is room for plenty of earnings, there’s also possibilities for many losses. Make sure you understand the market you invest in and always know your risks before you invest.

Pros: If you have a passion for writing, you can consider self-publish an E-book on Amazon. There’s no limit to what you want to write about, it can be about education, fiction, cooking or fairy tales for the kids! It’s a great source of passive income if your e-book is loved.
Cons: Same scenario to the YouTube channels, writing an E-book requires lots of time and efforts. If your end goal is just for the money, E-books does not promise any returns.
