How To Make Money Online While Sleeping

Caution: The title of this post is not what you think. I dare you to read down…

When you’re done reading this post, you’ll discover what it takes to earn more, even while you’re asleep.

Internet marketing has gone beyond waking up each morning to write articles and expect Google to rank them. Sure, content is still vital, but to achieve long-term success, you need a better system.

Blogging has come a long way. You don’t have to do ONE thing right if you desire to make good money online. You need to do SEVERAL things right and still remain focused on the important tasks at hand. You also know that effective marketing is the pivot of your online business – it doesn’t matter the model you’ve chosen.

As a blogger, I find it pretty difficult to separate the real thing that I want (money) from the other things that make life better (fame and fun). But let’s quickly look at the steps you should take in order to make money while sleeping…

Have a vision for your business

Permit me to say that vision is a virtue every businessperson needs. Without it, you’d be stagnant, even though you’re busy doing the wrong stuffs. When I say you can make money sleeping, it’s a literal statement.

It means that you can actually relax, work less, travel and still earn a lot of money online. But you’ve to put in what it takes today.

That’s where vision comes to play. If your goal is to enjoy internet lifestyle: travel the world at your own pace, live in an exotic house and still have enough money to help others, then working hard today is paramount.

Every successful internet marketer you know today didn’t get there overnight. It took them years and oftentimes, with sleepless nights.

Therefore, don’t feel dejected right now that you’re missing your sleep, it’s not going to last forever.

If you work hard and smarter today, you can enjoy the dividends of your investment in the nearest future. And when the time comes, you can sleep and make more money – that’s how it works.

Set up a system today – start now

blogging system

I love building systems because they afford me the opportunity to make money while I’m sleeping. Most times when I woke up in the morning, I’d see sales notifications from the affiliate offers I promote.

I started building niche sites in 2012 and even though some failed woefully, a handful of these sites still earn passive income.

One other ways you can make money while you’re sleeping is to promote recurring programs. For instance, if potential customers click your hostgator hoplink and buy hosting, you’re entitled to lifetime commission, as long as the customer remains.

The same thing goes for Getresponse and Aweber email service tools – membership subscriptions are in the same category as well.

I’m just showing you that making money in your sleep is possible, but it’ll take some time before you start seeing results, especially when you’re new to internet marketing.

An important fact:

Blogging is a means by which you connect with the right audience and then recommend the right products to them. But blogging itself may not earn you passive income just yet. In fact, it’s difficult.

You can’t simply start a blog and expect to make $1k monthly doing nothing other than writing blog posts and responding to comments. Those are essential, but they can’t make you money.

You’ve got to find out what your loyal readers truly want. Then, you can create a product or find complementary affiliate offers for them.

So can you make money while sleeping?

Answer: Yes, you CAN. But it’s all left for you to work it out today, so that in few months/years from now, you can start to earn passive income – and not only when you’re asleep, but also when you travel or abandon your website for a period of time.

Truth is, you can always sleep. So why spend your precious moments sleeping away your creativity when you’ve a lot of work to do for your tomorrow? Look for quality content to help you grow your blog, see content writing services.

    I have always been making money while sleeping. It is either via online channels or via my investments. However, the issue that you have correctly pointed out is the development of a working system. MTTB is one of such system designed by expert who have an existing track record of success.

    1. Yes, maybe you’re right with MTTB being the right system to earn while sleeping. But at first, you need to work it out.

      1. Winsten says:

        That is correct, many people simply refuse to take action and rely upon shifting the responsibilities to others. This is why mentorship is so important to help one maintain discipline.

      True! there is no substitute for hard work. But there is an easier way to make money without HARD WORK. Call it an alternative to hard work. It is called SMART work. Working the right things

  7. Yessir. Love waking up to automated sales.

  8. Success in online marketing boils down to one crucial thing…Traffic! But more importantly Converting Traffic, a Million clicks with Zero Conversion kind of defeats the purpose. Learn more about Targeted Traffic and its importance to your online success.

  9. Randy McLean says:

    The hardest part is working when you don’t feel like it. But that is what separates those who succeed vs. those who don’t.

    You have to keep plugging away until you hit the tipping point. Once you get there you will see sales start to come in.

    Then you will realize that all of the effort you put into it was worth it. Yes, I love waking up to see new sales!

  10. Thanks for the read! Have a great day by design..
