Top 9 Ideas to Build an
Additional Income Stream

Are you a person who is really looking forward to building an additional source of income for yourself? If yes, then you are in the right place! I have made a list of the top 9 methods by which you can create an additional stream of income for yourself, even if you are a student, employee, business owner, home-maker, or are in any other full-time profession.

Any of these could an be amazing, stable Passive Income Stream if pursued diligently. I have chosen these 9 methods due to the reason that the capital investment amount required in these is low and the returns are unfathomable. The best part is, you can work on any of these from the comfort of your house!

So, let’s have a look at what these are…


Affiliate marketing is a process by which you earn commissions for promoting and selling other peoples’ products. It is the best way to earn money according to me, as you can literally earn millions by just sitting at the comfort of your house, and that too completely passively! Although, you have to be careful about one thing: IF YOU DO WHAT THE MASSES ARE DOING, YOU WILL GET WHAT THE MASSES ARE GETTING – EMPTY BUCKETS! You have got to be unique!

If you want to build an unshakable business just by doing affiliate marketing, there is one course that I would highly recommend – Affiliate Marketing Academy. I have purchased this course myself and I have completed it too. It truly has the potential to change your life!


Network Marketing is a business model in which the person may earn money from both – direct sales to customers and by sponsoring new direct sellers and potentially earning a commission from their efforts.
It is an amazing way to earn income passively. This has such an extraordinary scope that you can quit your 9-5 job and do this full time! There is no cap on how much you can earn through network marketing. The best part is… you earn money completely PASSIVELY! 

I have some known associates who are very successful in this field and are full-time networkers. If you want to know more about this, get in touch with me via email – or you can also contact me by sending a message through the Contact Me page.

Many of my friends and known associates are investors in the stock market and I can tell this hands down, YOU CAN LITERALLY EARN A FORTUNE BY BEING A STOCK MARKET TRADER OR INVESTOR. I strongly recommend you to learn how to trade, as there is no ceiling as to how much you can earn in the stock market. You have to be careful though. You can lose money as quickly as you can earn it too! Patience is the key.



You can start your own YouTube channel completely for free and post videos to build a social following. Just chose a particular Niche about which you would like to make content. Chosing a niche is important because that is what you will be known for in the digital space! So, my suggestion is, pick a niche / topic that you LOVE to talk about. This will help you in the long run and will also keep you motivated.

YouTubers get paid through the way of advertisements. You just need to be careful about the content you are willing to offer. You must keep three questions in mind before you create your content:

  1.   Would I watch and recommend the content myself?
  2.   Can people relate to and understand my content?
  3.   Am I providing value or an amazing experience for my viewers?

People will be more inclined towards online education and learning. You could ride this wave to make it to the top if you are willing to put in the efforts!

If you are interested in creating your own digital courses, I would recommend you to get in touch with Siddharth Rajsekar. He is a lifestyle coach who teaches people how to be digital coaches. He is also one of my mentors who has helped me in my journey.
