How To Make Money By Doing Nothing

The Proven 4-Step Affiliate Marketing Blueprint

This is the exact same formula I use to create a passive income and build a lucrative business online.

So, what do you think about how to make money by doing nothing. Obviously, you searched for this phrase or something like it. So you are wondering if this is legit.

I am not sure you can make money by doing nothing. But let’s take a closer look at it. I’m going to brainstorm for you just a bit.

First, let’s get a clear picture of what the word nothing means. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, Nothing means: not anything: nothing: leaves nothing to the imagination.

You can’t imagine a way to make money at home doing nothing because nothing is not anything or no thing. WOW! Now that’s a mouth full.

It looks like maybe the answer is No you can’t make money by doing nothing.

How to make money by doing nothing


What if you sat on your couch and played fantasy football? That won’t fit the definition because you are doing something.

What if you took surveys at home on your iPhone. You can make money taking surveys but you are actively doing something. As long as you are actively doing something then you are not doing “nothing”. Which brings us back to the question of “how to make money doing nothing?”

The real question is why you would want to make money doing nothing? Because you want money. That is the best answer. Kind of like winning the lottery but you actively bought a ticket.


 What are the real reasons you keep asking “how can I make money doing nothing?” Here are a few, 6 to be exact.
1. You need a job
2. You need money
3. You hate your job
4. You want to stay home with your family
5. Or you just want to stay home with you
6. You want to own a business and don’t have the money

There numerous reasons you need money depending on who you are. I do have an idea for you that will fulfill all of these reasons. But if to do nothing is all you want to do then you don’t have the motivation to do what I am going to suggest. Because my suggestion will take effort and work.

Oh yes, you will make money. People are making $4000-$10,000 dollars a month. But they didn’t get there by doing nothing, and they certainly didn’t get rich quick.

I don’t think you were serious about the Google search you did. I think you were joking and wanted to see what it says about how to make money doing nothing.

Have you heard of Affiliate Marketing? Or have you heard about Wealthy Affiliate? Both are real honest ways to make money online with a business of your own.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing is the how and Wealthy Affiliate it the way. Let Allow me to explain both of these better.

Affiliate Marketing is you setting up a website (this is the best way to promote), finding a niche (something you are passionate about or interested in that has products that you can promote), becoming partners with companies that have these products (a free service) and when they click on your product the company pays you a commission.

You only promote these products online. You never go door to door or have to tell people about your products. You have no overhead and don’t even have to buy the products yourself.

I have an idea, and it’s not how to make money by doing nothing. But do you really think that is possible? No, I didn’t think so either.

Let’s learn more.

So far this sounds pretty good. You will need a website, learn how to optimize your site, learn how to write good content, how to link your products, how to let people online know about you. There is a lot to do.

You can choose a company to host your website like WIX or GoDaddy. Both of these companies have a high ranking in the online hosting business.

A hosting company allows you to park your site on their turf and WordPress will make sure it is visible on the internet.

Both companies offer tutorials and forums to help you set everything up. YEP!!! Sounds like wayyyy toooo much to handle. I know I think so too.


I have a much better idea. How about a company named Wealthy Affiliate that teaches you all of this step-by-step, guides you and offers unparalleled support 24/7/365. It does exist!

Wealthy Affiliate allows you to join their program FREE and take a look around. NO catches, No gimmicks, No credit card required. If you want to go ahead and check it out now here is the link to put in your email and a password.

Or you may continue for more information. I found Wealthy Affiliate by accident on the web while searching for other things. Much like you searched for me. I guess you could say it was the beginning of the remainder of my days on earth. Wealthy Affiliate and Affiliate Marketing are the bomb.
