Ever dreamed about waking up to more money in your bank account? Or maybe even thought about strange ways to make money without having to work too hard for it? You might think that you are delusional for thinking that money can come to you, but in all honesty, it is very well possible. 

Many people struggle with keeping their finances in check. Whether it is juggling day-to-day bills or school debts, money can cause severe distress to many. Well, contrary to what we have all been taught, the best way to make money is not necessarily about working hard, but instead it is about working smart. I remember when I first started reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad, I was around 23 years old and it occurred to me that no one had ever spoken to me about the financial aspect of money or how to handle assets and liabilities. No one ever told me that working is not the only way to acquire money, and that there are new ways to make money, even when you are asleep! 

And since the objective of this article is not to help you fall asleep, but to provide you with realistic ways to make money online effortlessly, I’ll cut to the chase and share with you 6 ways that can help you make money while you’re sleeping: 

1. Invest in stocks
Investing in stocks can be a great way to earn some passive income. And now with the internet making it easier than ever before, investing in the right stocks can help you generate profit from the comfort of your home. 

2. Rent your property
A smart way to make use of unused parts of your house is to rent them out. If you have a vacation house that you are not currently using, rent it to gain some extra income. You can also opt to rent out any extra rooms you might have for tourists or exchange students. This can be done quite easily either through social media ads or simply by using websites like Airbnb

3. Create a blog
Perhaps one of the most popular ways to gain some passive income is by creating your own blog. Whether you are a writer who has a passion for words or an expert at something, creating your own blog and sharing your experience and expertise can be a great way to bring in people. Once you have created a good reader base, you can turn to advertisers to purchase ads on your blog. Not only that, but blogging platforms like Medium.com can even give you money if you are part of their Medium Partner Program. 

4. Sell your expertise
If you are an expert at something then why not take advantage of that and sell it? Creating online content like videos or eBooks might be a lot of work at first, but once things start rolling you will be able to sit back and enjoy all proceeds flowing your way. With videos being widely used to showcase products and services, you might be able to earn money by selling ads on any of your social media channels.

5. Sell your stuff 
Why keep unused stuff cluttering your house when you can sell them instead? Just like the saying goes, two birds one stone. Turning to websites like eBay and Amazon to sell some of your junk can be a smart way to get some extra cash.

6. Create a membership community
If you are a well known figure with interesting content then this one is for you! By creating interesting and high quality content that is only accessible to members, your community can be appealing and bring in subscribers who are willing to pay monthly subscription fees. 

The idea behind making money is not about what you do, but instead it is about how you do it.
