Passive income is more common in the off-line world; people says “around 80% of passive income scenarios stem from real estate investments”. Despite this fact, there are interesting alternatives if you are running an online business.

You have different choices to create passive income across a diversified amount of opportunities. It may be income coming from the same customers, or revenew from new customers. It may require no personal involvement whatsoever, such as an e-book, or software sold on a web site.
