Question: Is it Still Possible to Make Money from Zero Start Up?

In these times when people are losing their jobs many who are computer savvy are turning to the internet to "make a quick buck". We know this isn't possible or is it?

Can someone turn a simple idea into a profitable one without a huge start up?
These days you can easily set up a FaceBook page or website for free but getting that idea to turn into a plan can be difficult.

Would love to hear from anyone in the same situation to share ideas with please.

    It's very possible to turn an idea into something that yields great dividends in no time depending on how smart, creative, and determined you are. You can turn your passion into a thriving online business so far you can dedicate some time and effort. You don't have to incur heavy start-ups as you meant, but you need time and effort to make things happen. The internet is a large marketplace for you to explore to actualize this as soon as possible.

    The question is not whether it is possible, the question is if you are able to do it.


    Are you able to find an idea, a blueprint, a course which you can follow or not?


    Are you able to stick to it, are you able to not get distracted from anything else?


    These are the questions. Mindset is the most important part to answer it. Everything depends on it. Because the possibilities are endless in our online world, so yes of course it is possible, you should remove the word 'impossible' from your dictionary


    It's hard to just throw ideas in here, because we don't know who you are, what you like to do or not like to do, what you're passionate about etc.



    But for the affiliate marketing space for example you can do whatever you want, if you like to make videos, go to youtube and start from there, if you don't like this, start blogging etc. Again, it all depends on what is going on in your head, how much you really want it and what you are willing to invest (time/money)

      John Reese's material taken over by Russell Brunson? That guy is all over the net!
      I watched some of his videos and nearly fell over at his prices no wonder he is rich!

      Being computer savvy is relative to computers and is "not" relative to making a website, creating Blogs and can do Affiliate Marketing, Display Ads, Selling Leads, Facebook Marketing. Any type of marketing on the internet requires self-education or a formal education.

      Self-education is about as "Zero Start" as it gets.

    I do think so. You won't become millionaire, but you can start building a business from the scratch

    SOMETIMES you need some start-up money. I have helped out in that department.

    But sometimes you need to ask the right questions about the road ahead.

    Like size of the universe, attrition rates, competition, your own competitive advantage, tech advantages that could make your efforts a breeze, regulatory changes that could bite you or help you, etc.

    I have in my files somewhere... 20-25 questions I always asked before I would buy a business. (I've bought and sold 6 or 8 years ago.) The questions might help you. Let me know if you want them.

    Yes, but the person must already have the skills to do this or be willing to learn them. I would say it's more to do with experience than how much $ you have in the bank, as money can easily be wasted if you don't know what you are doing.

    For the average person coming out of a 9-5, I wouldn't advise it unless they had no other choice. Even then I'd suggest freelancing over starting something they have had no experience doing before.

  • It's very much *possible* - perhaps moreso than every before - but that's certainly quite different than "it will happen quickly." Like others here have advised, doing it in a sustainable, long-term minded way requires expertise, and in the absence of expertise, focused/intentional effort and skillset development (which one can acquire freelancing, with low-cost trial-and-error projects, or with a hands-on mentor)

    It is possible.
    I built 3 online businesses and all of them are successful. Im not saying it earns thousands or millions, but enought to pay my rent, food, and have some fun in my free time.

    You have to dedicate 80% of your time to related education, research, etc and 20% into practice. Thats the magic formula.

    If you cant dedicate or sacriface 80% of your time in this matter, you wont make it.

    People nowadays are playing with Affiliate Marketing. If you're good at Digital Marketing, you can always start something from Zero. Affiliate marketing can make you rich if you play your cards right. You just have to choose your products after a long research.

    One of the good ways to start a profitable online business even with a zero startup is selling services (Gigs) on big marketplaces like Fiverr, SEOCLerks, and the likes. This can be a good starting point while you build an affiliate marketing business using a free subdomain alongside. That's my own simple idea.

    I think you can gain money from Affiliate programs

    Forex Affiliate program is one of the ways you can get rich, for instance the broker that I work with it gives me at least 5$ for each confirmed registration
