The rise of automation and the development of algorithms that manage portfolios and readjust investments based on predefined risk tolerance and goals has simplified stock investment, turning it to a means of making money while you sleep. You open the doors of passive income when you invest in high dividend stock and wait for its appreciation in value over time to receive your dividend without actively managing the portfolio. Stock investment requires minimal effort, unlike running a business. All that is required of you is to conduct a market analysis, invest in a viable business and go to bed.  

Affiliate Marketing

All you have to do is get an online platform like a community or blog and create a social media presence or website where you can tag the unique affiliate link you use to promote the said products. Once all these are in motion, you can push the link with content tailored for a specific product and go to bed waiting for people to click and generate income without any other intervention, even while you sleep.
