A really simple way to create passive cash flow on the internet is by starting a web directory. A web directory is basically an index of other websites such as dmoz.org that are compiled into categories. You can start a web directory on any subject you can think of and profit from it for years to come.
Anyone can start a web directory and all it takes is a domain name, some web hosting and a directory script. Directory scripts costs as little as $25 or can be created using simple html. Web directory scripts make starting and running a directory a lot easier because they automate the process of accepting new link submissions as well as accepting payments.
One of the things that make directories profitable is webmasters paying for link submissions. Webmasters who need one way links pointing back to their website are happy to pay to be listed on a directory because everyone with a website needs backlinks for SEO.
Paid submissions are only one of many ways you can monetize a web directory. You can monetize your directory the same way you monetize any other site ie. Google Adsense, affiliate programs, text link and banner advertising.
To ensure you generate the most income you can from your directory you need to market it online and build up its traffic. That means you need to build up your sites backlinks via article marketing, link exchanges, press release distribution or even text link advertising.
Or if you already have a website you can simply link to your web directory from it. If you already own a website or two then starting a web directory is a super easy way to create more cash flow from what you’ve already built. And if you start a directory on the same subject as your other site(s) you can create a valuable resource for your current visitors.
So for the price of a nice dinner out on the town you can have a domain name, web hosting and a directory script that will bring in passive income for years to come. Turning $50 into thousands is not that hard. It just takes knowing exactly what to do.
I’ve turned web directories into passive income generators over the last four years that have generated over $90,000 in profits for me. The hard part was learning how to do everything myself. Luckily you don’t have to go through the process of learning everything yourself because I explain it all in my new eBook.
