How I created my passive income source

Written by: Ranjan Barman

I was a student of class XI when it all started. I wanted to learn the technique about earning money with less efforts. So that I can continue my study with earning.

I used to spend hours on internet learning about the technique “How to make money from internet without investment”. As a student I couldn’t think about any investment to start a business that time.

After months of research and understanding I came to a conclusion that was I could sell other people’s products or services from a website that is called affiliate marketing. Also I can earn from adsense ads if I own a website and a Youtube channel.

This knowledge brought another thought in my mind “how to own a website?” I knew how to start a Youtube channel. It was so easy. I could make a video and upload it in my channel. But owning a website was a technical thing.

I put myself into research again how could I own a website. And I understood that owning a website would cost me money and also I need knowledge in HTML & CSS. So first I needed a money source to buy a domain & hosting and also I must acquire knowledge in HTML & CSS to design the website.

Also read: To create a passive source of income you must have an active source.

As a student I had no other options but teaching students. I was good in English grammar so I decided that I would be teaching that subject to the school students.

I started telling my friends that I wanted to teach students and if they know someone who needed a English teacher. Soon I got my very first student and from one it became two and numbers started increasing every month.

Also read: How I started my own tutorial center that gave me 10k+ every month.

By that time I also started a YouTube channel where I used to upload tutorial videos on English grammar. YouTube didn’t give me money for the first few years though it helped me in many ways.

I bought my first website and started writing blogs when I had a source of money from teaching students.

Also read: How to own a website?

Now I got my teaching work, a YouTube channel and a website. The money I received from teaching that I used to spend on my internet bills and website.

This sequence went on for almost a year and nothing interesting happened. But in a year I became a known English teacher in my locality.

My website and YouTube didn’t generate any money for the first year. It took time to get my YouTube channel approved for adsense ads. And after rejected three times my website was also approved for adsense.

Many people have misconceptions about adsense. They think it’s a get rich quick scheme once their website or YouTube channel gets approved by adsense.

For me it took three years to get my first 100$ in my bank account. And after that the time started getting shorter. Sometimes it took three or four months or even six months to get 100$ in my bank account from YouTube.

But surprisingly I wasn’t earning money from website. Generating money from adsense ads on website took lot more efforts than a YouTube channel. But still I was paying for hosting plans and domain renewal.

I made many mistakes in the beginning. I bought few domains unnecessarily. Sometimes I purchased wrong hosting plan, removed all website data by mistake.

In 2016 I purchased blogrator.com and since then I have been only focusing on this website. From the name you can guess it’s purpose. I wanted to make it a blogging website and wanted to earn money from adsense ads and affiliate marketing.

I have learnt one thing very clearly. Whether you have a YouTube channel or a website you must concentrate on a fixed niche. Like my YouTube channel when my focus was on English grammar only then the growth of the channel was very good but when I started uploading videos on other topics since then the growth started go down side.

I have multiple YouTube channels now three are them performing well.

I have big plans for blogrator. I want to turn it into a media company like forbes or medium in future. I want many freelance or full-time content writers write for blogrator. I have started the process. I have few writers now who publish their writing on daily basis.

I have done multiple jobs, businesses and freelancing to support my passion. I have worked in Orion Edutech Pvt Ltd as soft skills trainer in 2018. After that I joined Arena Animation Malda as GWDD+ course trainer that is Graphics and web design & development and digital marketing course. After Arena Animation I went to Kolkata to have a different taste in career. I joined as guest experience manager in OYO in sector v kolkata. After that I came back Malda and join OPPO as a trainer.

During the second month of lockdown in India I resigned from OPPO to start my own E-commerce business in Malda. This business got a good hit. And for the first time the people of Malda came to know about blogrator. Because during COVID 19 outbreak I turned my website into a E-commerce store where people can place order from the website.

In early ages after completing BCA from Malda college I did some freelancing part-time jobs like assessor for media and entertainment sector under skill India project. I was also a mistrey auditor for Shaw hotels and consultancy. I designed websites for my foreign clients. I was hired multiple times from foreign countries for teaching computer, English and Bengali language.

I did multiple business like starting a web design training and service provider. I have been running my YST Tutorial centre since 2011. And also the recent E-commerce business and many more.

I have also published book like “Communication English- A Universal Exercise Book” at Amazon flipkart like platforms.

Those jobs, freelancing and businesses were and still are my active source of income. Without those income I could never able to support my passion my passive source. My passive source is still not strong. But I have trusted my passion for years and I have accrued lots of knowledge about it. The best part is I never gave up. And my this attitude gave me lots of technical knowledge that I have today. And I am truly very happy about it.
