    You're in the wrong place if you need to start an online business for survival.

    You'd be better off washing cars or windows. Stay away from the internet until you can afford to invest in tools.

    You can create an online business from nothing, but it's going to take a while and you'll starve before you see results.

    There're actually some opportunities online without capital, but as Michael Meaney said... they take time.
    Make sure you have time to make it. There's no short-time cut for it.

    • Go to ClickBank to find some products that you are passionate to promote. If you have no budget, you can still try looking for prospects in similar niche FB groups.

      Sure!

      - Affiliate marketing using Youtube and free video online creator/maker.
      - Selling service you can do on fiverr (writing, drawing, anything).
      - Selling any digital file creation you can create to online marketplace (such as selling photo or vector or illustration on shutterstock, 123rf, envato marketplace, creativemarket, etc).
      - Selling free PLR products to your own local people who don't have good internet speed, etc.
      - Selling anything you have locally via Youtube and Facebook to your own local people who may need your stuff for quick real cash (you just use Youtube & Facebook to promote your stuff to your people - local target).
      - And etc...

      But you'll need to set your own interest, because opportunity is never end and will blow your mind if you don't have a focus on a single thing to start!

      Hope it helps!

    What are your resources and what do you bring to the table? It does take money to make money.


    There are cheap ways to earn and unfortunately you will likely lose money for the first 6 months to a year. Very few people profit in he first 6 months to a year.

    After you figure what your passionate about think of ways that you can be of value.Check to see what problems are not being solved in the market place and figure out a solution.So look at the market then figure out ways to address the needs of that group .

    Now Keep in mind that not all markets are profitable so you might want to do some up front research .

    I started a consulting business online, with 0 capitol invested. I got a few clients to pay the bills ( within the first month) and it funded everything else. Don't be afraid to pickup a phone tho.

    You don't HAVE to invest money, you do have to be creative.

    You can combine a online service with affiliate marketing but you need some money to invest in that but not so much.

    SOmeone said that if you dont have any capital to start you are going to starve before you get results. But everything is possible.

    Have you thought of offering your services on freelancer sites?

    If you have no skills that you can market on a freelance site, and if you speak English well, you can at least make some money on crowdsourcing sites like Clickworker.

    If you really do not have money, start a blog on Blogspot. It's free. Try to find a niche that interests you and in which you already have some knowledge. Then you can put affiliate links on your blog.

    These are the choices I see if you have no money to invest.

    If you have some money, invest in your own website, buy a Wordpress theme, create original content and then put affiliate links on your website.

    But as others have said, it will take time to achieve significant financial results.

    Good luck!

    You can start a blog and write a lot of content.

    Over time you can start ranking for long tail keywords.

    This will take some time though.

    If you really need money right away you might want to look for freelance work on Upwork or go out and find employment while building your online business.

    I believe you can start with $0 investment but you have to be willing to work hard, learn hard and be creative.

    I personally know of several authentic rags-to-comfortable-income stories.

    Driven, determined people will find a way if one's to be found.

    But very few have the fortitude to succeed, with money to invest, let alone from scratch.

  • If you are going to act out of desperation, you will seldomly see success in your online business.

    Do a course on how to make money online. You first have to invest in your own financial education, before you can invest time and money in internet marketing activities.

    Once you have discovered your path to online business success, and know how to achieve your objective, then and only then do you commit to starting your online business.

    Just grabbing random products to promote and sell online may just cause you more frustration, because you don't yet know how to market online effectively. So first learn how to do it, before you start your make money online endeavors.

    If you can write then it's easy to find an article writing or spinning job paying $5-$10 for around 500 words. Use that money to invest in your own site.

    Opinion 1

    If you have friends or a mentor in Internet Marketing world, your journey will become a bit easier, But if you have no friends and no money, then my friend you are in for a big heart break. Making money on the internet is hard, has many failures and a lot of burnt money.

    Before starting anything, go offline save some money then lurk around on these forums and make friends and then start doing something on the internet.

    Opinion 2

    Learn Copywriting.(This will take a lot of time and practise)

    Find jobs on upwork, fiverr, guru, freelancer and on warriors on hire.

    If you are ready to work for 12-15 hours a day then you have high chances of becoming successful!

    All the best!

    If you want to start an online business then what I think affiliate marketing is the best business because it really needs you zero money to start.

    You only need 2 tools one is an autoresponder which you can get for a 30 day free trial.
    and another thing you need is a funnel builder tool which is only 10 bucks a month and you can also get 7 day trial for that as well the software is called builderall which is the cheapest software for funnel building.

    and if you don't know what affiliate marketing is affiliate marketing is simply selling other people's products in return for a Commission.

    And the best part about affiliate marketing is this if you are going to do it in the right way you will be able to start getting results in just 30 days.

    Let me know if there is anything I can help you out with.

          You did not answer my question about hosting. Do I need a host?


          Builderall.net says "Error : Site not found"


          Clickfunnels does not say how much the monthly price is after the 14 day trial, but I googled it and found $97 to $297 per month. How do I make $297 the first month and other monies to profit?

    A lot of my friends are always asking me to teach them how I make money online and what I recommend to my friends who are newbies is to get paid for clicking on ads. Its not huge money but you can make $25-$30 per hr with the right ones.



    I believe this is a good way for newbies to begin online, because you start earning money straight away and learn about different marketing techniques well doing it.
