Making money in your sleep sounds like a dream for many of us, right? While there’s no shortcut to getting rich overnight, it is actually possible to make money while you’re sleeping.

That’s why in today’s post, our friends over at Learn to Trade are discussing some ways to make money while you sleep, which will make waking up the next morning with more money in the bank a reality. From blogging to creating internet content and learning how to trade forex, we’ll prove that passive income generates impressive results. 

Blogging

While blogging can generate little to no income if not utilised properly, with the right know-how, it can generate you a small fortune. Despite being considered one of the most on-going labour intensive ideas, blogging can slot neatly within a busy schedule, and the content can be written on almost anything you’re interested in. 

It’s all about knowing how to monetize your blog with the right strategies. Some options to consider are by affiliate marketing, contextual ads, selling ad space or sponsorships. Affiliate marketing is when an online retailer pays you a commission for traffic or sales generated from your referrals - making it one of the best ways to make money without actually doing anything. While it’s known within the business as an ‘old school’ technique for making money, it’s an effective business model for solo internet entrepreneurs to tap into generating funds from their blog. 

However, to generate traffic, blogging does require some self-marketing such as SEO to aid traffic or social media promotion - all while making sure that content is posted regularly enough to keep your audience interested and wanting more. 

Become a forex trader

The forex market is known as the most liquid market in the world and can be traded 24 hours a day, 5 days a week - making it very accessible to anyone with an internet connection. While it’s undeniable that it takes a while to get to grips with the forex market, trading is a skill that will pay off - and will continue to pay off while you’re sleeping. 

Although, obviously, you won’t be analysing and placing orders while asleep, by automating your trading or trading in a way that doesn’t require much effort, you could be on your way to making an enjoyable passive income. Consider placing long-term orders in the market - this means that you’ll only be required to check your orders every-so-often. Alternatively, you could choose a money manager or an automated trading platform to trade with your account, where you’ll have little to no involvement while watching the profits increase - so you can get your beauty sleep without sacrificing that all-important income. 

Start a dropship business

As you won’t need to maintain inventory or store any products, dropshipping businesses negate the requirement to have an official location such as an office or warehouse - all you’ll need is an internet connection! 

As such, you won’t need to worry about extensive overhead costs in both setting up and running your business, meaning that you can make more profit while you sleep. To generate passive income, all you’d need to do is market the product - which can easily slot into a busy day to day schedule by using eBay or Amazon. 

The real key to making money while you sleep is to find a niche in the market and put the hours in during the day. There’s no quick solution to making money while you sleep, however once your business is established, you can sit back and relax in the knowledge that you’ll be making profits at all hours. So, making money in your sleep may not be too good to be true after all!
