How to make money while you sleep

We are turning our attentions strongly to affiliate deals at the moment. Everything is automated and you get a kick back on every sale. In short, you make money while you sleep.

It’s good for us because we make money, and it’s good for our users because they get to buy the stuff that we review anyway. I think they call that an end-to-end experience. Whatever.

If you are involved in the club scene and want to do the same I recommend the legal high site everyonedoesit.com (aff link).

It’s relevant to our audience of clubbers on Gurn.net and if you have a clubbing blog or website it will be relevant to your readers too. So how do you make the most of it?

The secret to making money while you sleep is to work at it while you are awake. Here is what we plan to do to encourage our readers to click through:

The idea is to start a conversation between your users about the products. If they genuinely like them (or hate them) they will talk about them. If they are good products they will encourage each other to buy them. It’s allowing your users to sell for you (while you sleep).

Of course, the products have to be good enough or no one will bother. You can’t fool people. EDIT have a good range, we just need to make sure enough of our users try them.

I’ll keep you posted on how we are doing, and if you need any info on how to do it yourself then drop me a line. I’m always happy to help.
