Affiliate marketing is a  popular form of passive income.  You just put out content and hope that visitors take advantage of your partners.  This approach can be improved by offering the latest deals from your affiliates to your community.  The passive part of income can be less so during the Holidays as retailers turn to weekly and even daily deals or coupons.  The good news is that this time of year should provide you a boost over your typical affiliate revenues.
