Passive Income Challenge Day 4
Having more content on your website is better than having less. But, you want the content to be important to the audience and provide what they need. One piece of content you must have on your website, no matter what type of business you have, is a recommended resources page. This page is useful for your audience and it can be a profit center for you. Let’s talk about what it is, how to make one, and what you should recommend on that page.
Resources You Use, Stand by, & Recommend
The page should only include a list of resources and a description of each that you use, stand by, and would recommend happily to others. If you’ve not tried it and can’t stand by it, it’s best if you don’t include it on the list.
Make a New Page
To create a recommended resource page, it’s just a new page on your site. If you use WordPress this is super easy to do. Just click “add page” and give it a title that makes sense such as “Resources I Recommend” or something that resonates with your audience.

Use Affiliate Links
There may be some resources that you use that don’t have an affiliate program, or it’s a program you cannot get into for some reason. That’s okay. You can still recommend a few resources like that, but you want most of the things you recommend on this page to have an affiliate link so that you can earn extra income from the recommendation.
One thing that you can do is create a blog post about each of the resources you recommend. That will provide additional content for your blog, but you can then link to the blog post as you create them within the description of each resource on your resource page.

Create One Now
Go ahead and create one now if you don’t have one. If you do have one, start creating blog posts for each of the recommended resources. The blog post can be about the resource directly, or it can be about the task the resource helps with and the resource can be something you recommend within the post.
Remember to update and change your resource page as you change your own business practices and tools you use in your business. When you find a new product or service that you love, you can add to the page easily. If something falls out of your favour, you can always go back and remove it.
The point is, the resource page will give you some added passive income, but also give your audience something they really want from you. They want to know what you do, how you do it, and what you use to get it done. Win-Win!
P.S. Sharing is caring! So be sure to share this with your network and help fellow female entrepreneurs kick 2021 in the arse!
