Making money while I sleep

Last Update: July 30, 2019

I must confess that I have not been giving my business much of my attention lately. So when I checked my Amazon Affiliate account today and saw that one of the products I had listed had sold, I was thrilled!

It wasn't a huge amount, but it just goes to prove that we will can make money while we "sleep!"

Additionally, this means that my site is getting organic traffic! That's a great thing!

It also means I had better get working on my site again. A couple months of neglect...that could mean the difference between one sale or a hundred! I need to quit neglecting my future!

Just thought I would share this short post because I know how easy it can be to get discouraged when nothing is happening with our sites.

Something IS happening! You just have to believe in the process! I've been "re motivated"!

Best wishes,
Karin :)

Its a great feeling when the work pays off. Knowing that you now have your own piece of online real estate that can bring in passive income while you sleep.

Congratulations on the sale! I've found a sale can bring a spurt of momentum and lead to more sales if I take advantage of the burst

Well done Karin, somewhere in the world it is breakfast and coffee time and somewhere in the world folks are keen to spend money.

The beauty of a website is that it is only too happy to oblige any time of the day or night.

Best wishes as you stoke the fires of your online sales.

Wow, Karin congratulations! I also want to thank you for the motivating advice for the rest of us who aren't there yet. Could you tell me how you have the products you are promoting set up? Is it within your articles or do you have them listed elsewhere on your site? I hope my question makes sense. :-)

In my excitement I think I kind of misworded it a bit, it was on a product I recommended. I just included Amazon links to the product I was writing about in my post.

Thanks for your question and I hope I answered it adequately. :)

Best wishes,
Karin 😁

My "mentor-from-a-great-long-distance" who also happens to be the third wealthiest person in the world would be most proud of you!

This is one of his many quotes and one I try my best to keep me motivated each day:

"If you don't find a way to make money in your sleep you will work until you die" ~ Warren Buffett

So there...looks like you've cracked the code to success in affiliate marketing!

And what's next? The cover of Forbes magazine??? :-)

We have another online business that has for years been making money overnight.

It is a great feeling getting up in the morning and having overnight sales.

All the best
