I mean, investments work while you’re sleeping, of course, but all those claims about making money without DOING anything are absolutely a sham.
That’s the knee-jerk response many have to claims that money can be made while you sleep.
But in the age of internet marketing and instant global markets that NEVER sleep, what if ignoring the possibilities was the dumbest thing you ever did?
Consider what would happen if you took your experience, wisdom and expertise, and packaged it. What if you recorded it in audios and packaged them for sale? What if you made them a digital download available on your website? And what if you created automatic email messages that helped people see the need for the information you offer? What if your website was set up to take payments? What if you shared short sentences in social media that led them to your recordings on your website, automated them, and went to sleep?
Well, it’s only slightly more detailed than that, friends, and today – ANYONE can learn how to profit using email marketing techniques and information products.
It’s important to realize WHAT your offer is, HOW it serves your audience, and WHY they need it desperately. If you’re not convinced in your own mind, you’ll have trouble selling it.
“How a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” ~ Proverb
We all see many really bad ideas out there, but perfectionism is a dream killer, and you have to be willing to start somewhere. Your first idea may not be the greatest, but what if it is and you never tried? What if it isn’t, but what you learned in the process will make your next attempt excellent?
Here’s my advice before you start to put it all together. Start asking questions. Ask your friends on social media. Your Facebook business page lets you take polls, why not send one or two out?
Represent your idea visually, using an image with text overlay. Share it on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook. Request comments and opinions. LISTEN to what people are already asking for. Do you have the answer? Do you have a solution?
Don’t be intimidated by the idea that it’s already been done. You have a unique take. You have a way to express yourself that many will benefit from. We don’t all learn the same way, and we don’t all learn from the same people. I promise you, if you serve up a real solution to a real issue, someone out there needs it. Many ‘someones’ out there need it.
Put your idea on paper. Think it through. Ask someone who’s opinion you value to see if it has merit.

Keep in mind, if you’re in the DFW area, you may be interested in my Content Masterminds to discover the nuances of using content to make money while you sleep. It’s one of the many possibilities you should really look into before you discount it as ‘too good to be true.’
