Residual revenue is synonymous with passive income, a term you are probably more familiar with, and it’s a very smart way to build your online business.
Residual revenue or passive income is a recurring income from an asset you’ve built for your business. The basic idea is that you set up the asset or do the work once, and it continues to generate revenue for you over time. The asset can be a rental property or it can be someone else’s product you are promoting online.
Think about the bills you pay on a monthly basis: electric, telephone, website hosting, etc. The companies who are offering you those services have set up a source of revenue for themselves. They are meeting a need that you have and solving your problems.
Finding residual revenue streams isn’t even the hard part. You want to build a residual revenue based off of a common need. Think back on the bills I mentioned above. You’ve not going to discontinue your electrical service because you need it, right? Build your online business so that you find the closest correlation to that electric bill.

One of the first things I teach is list building because it is the most important first asset you can build for your online business. In order to do list building, you need an autoresponder. Boom, monthly revenue. Most autoresponders like Aweber and GetResponse have an affiliate program where you can promote their service. You earn a passive income off the recurring monthly fee your referrals pay for the service. Another big one for online business revenue is hosting. Hosting requires a monthly fee. Are you following me now? Makes sense, right?
There are several different ways to build a passive income. Let’s take a look at how those ways differ:
