#3 - Digital Publishing

This one is simple.

It’s all about posting information online. Typically the content is either sold directly or used as part of an affiliate marketing approach (more on that later).

Some of the most popular types of content to monetize include…

The biggest decision is finding your topic or niche

It can be anything you are passionate about. Think about your own skills and what you have to share. Don’t overthink it either. Most of your hobbies will make great blog material. Think cooking, gardening, home repair...

Just make sure it’s something you’re passionate about!
