    I have run a small web design business over 10 years and still ongoing with small and medium company clients. And it's been a wild ride of ups and downs and as web design gets more DIY these days, business opportunities appear to be on the downtrend and I would like to get be less dependent on income-on-per-project basis and have something I can build upon based on recommendations here.

    I have started several failed commence ventures and have experience in things like woocommerce and opencart deployments, and the hardest thing for me is getting good quality traffic. So I'm in the midst of building a PBN to drive some traffic to a new dropship ecommerce site and I'm sure it will take a while to get going, if at all.

    I hope someone who is reading this can offer some insight on a viable business plan that allows passive income streams and knows if my skill set of photoshop/design/wordpress/css/html can be leveraged upon, or not at all.

    Making money, to me requires experience and wisdom from battle-tested folks on this site! I have been lurking and reading as much as I can on BHW, there are so many many options, but I'm pretty much lost (and paralysed by all the varied methods)as to what can start making, say $20 a day passively and is highly scalable for future growth to hopefully in the region on $150 a day more. If there's one thing that I've learnt in life, it's that when you have a family and a young one to put through school, these steps to freedom really are essential.

    So, if anyone out there is reading this and can offer your expert opinion, I'm most willing to take the time to plough through to get the results. :) I hope to be one of the inspirational stories on this site and share what I've learnt.

    Thanks for reading!

    What you should do is figure out what niche you want to sell. Eg. Gardening, exercise, Justin Bieber, whatever. Then figure out how you want to sell fb, affiliate marketing, google adsense, Instagram etc. Basically just pick something and try it. Read the making money forum there are a lot of good ideas there you can just start doing something. Affiliate marketing is an easy way to get started, figure out a way to capture people's emails and then start emailing them every week with offers. Find what you are passionate about and will keep working at and do that.

    Don't get stuck in analysis just start taking action and that will get you there. Keep reading a lot. I have started with doing affiliate websites and instagram for example. Another thing you can do is figure out how to buy traffic and convert that with affiliate offers. Good luck!
