Earn Money with 0$ to Invest?

34 replies
Hello guys,

Quick back story, I have been out the internet marketing loop for a little while and I want to get back in, I just got out of a terrible break up (woman I was going to marry left me for another guy), and I'm trying to get my life back together, but I don't have too much cash to invest. I know this sounds like a newbie question, but to be honest, I just need to start somewhere again.

Please help me.

What's a good way to make money online with 0$ investment?

    Drop-shipping might be a good option for you. When you drop-ship you don't need a site or any investment at all, just pure research!

    Or you can offer services on Fiverr. Thousands of people earn a full-time income there.

  • My dude the best way for you to get back into the game without spending a ton of cash up front is starting by brokering deals!

    Start with Fiverr.com right - and also with craigslist . . .

    Go to craigslist and look for people who need business card designs, or logo designs (these are huge and everywhere) or for people who needs websites done.

    Then go to Fiverr and use those people's images, and logos, and sites as your portfolio.

    Keep the two people separated - and broker the deal yourself.

    This is a quick money maker, and the more belief you have in yourself - the faster you'll make some money without investing a single red cent!

    This is one of the ways I got started, and similar to what I do today . . . only I use people from other countries and work through word of mouth using referrals.

    All the best,
    Michael

      Yeah the dropshipping thing is always nice, do you do Ebay for that?

        Hello Chris,
        I know 7years ago when I had little cash to invest, I started Blogging and putting up CPA offers and Adsense.

        Maxbounty is really a good place to start with finding good CPA offers.

        Keep it simple Chris.

        Everything in life is simple, we as people are the ones who complicate things over and over.

        The circumstances may look grim - however the easiest way to get what you want is to keep things simple, and go after them like nothing else matters.

        That idea takes no skills, or talent. All it takes is massive action and a bit of smarts which involves how much to charge people.

        If you need help with that - charge $97 - $197 for logo design
        $47 - $97 for business cards
        And charge $150 - $300 or $500 for website designs based on how many pages they want.

        There I gave away a legit money maker with the pricing strategy for you.

        Most likely you won't use it, but hopefully someone reading this one day will stumble upon it and take massive action and make money with this!

        When you do - send me a testimonial and a virtual high five!

        Looks like yo got a lot of good suggestions here Chris. It really is hard to get to where you want to be with NO investment, but it can be done. You just need to figure out what direction you want to move in and go forward from there. But stick with it. Most people bounce around too much and then give up. Certainly list building will get you going, but that takes time to build up if you do not know some of the short cuts.

    It can certainly be achieved. I can think of dozens of ways right off the bat, but - no offense - you should aim to invest a little if you want fast results. At the very least, I'd recommend this:

    - Domain
    - Hosting

    With those 2 items, you could put together an affiliate site, join a network, setup some free-to-join offers, and learn how to send targeted traffic at those offers. Easy money, cheap, fast.

    I'd suggest providing a service for others. Writing, SEO, design, funnel set up, anything you're good at...

    This wont cost you money and will do 2 things:

    1) Allow you to save up money
    2) You'll see what others are doing and it may inspire you

    Hey. YouTube is the best free traffic if used correctly. I would start making daily videos in order to build up your subscribers. I started my website by using eBay to get about $50 extra bucks to use towards hosting and an autoresponder though. I just started a page on my blog called Proof Of My Earnings that is a collection of my YouTube videos & this is a great way to get high ranking backlinks for your site as well

    join fiverr, fourerr, odesk, elance, and every other freelancer platform out there. Sell whatever skills you have, if you don't have any skills, learn them. Can also sell things like Data entry and Transcription, but because this is unskilled you will have major competition from asian people working for pennies!

    Once you are earning enough to get by start saving your money towards starting your online business/site/ whatever you want to do and start making the transition into passive, instead of fixed income..

    Get a job, save some capital and start your business. Work part time at online marketing until you can make enough to do it full time. Trying to start from scratch with no capital is very hard.

    What's a good way to make money online with 0$ investment?
    Think back to that time when you were making money online in the past.

    When you built your way up from nothing to something.

    The strategies may have been different. And the technologies. But how did you spend your time?

    What was your mindset like? How often did you think about what you were trying to achieve? How many hours did you put in around the clock studying, implementing, kicking ass and taking names?

    What did that time feel like?

    Think on that. Aim to regain that same composure and that same approach. Visualize it every morning when you wake up. And before you go to sleep.

    Do that all over again.

    And above all, focus on the fundamentals.

    You may not know which direction to head right now, but you'll find your way.

    P.S. Launch a service.

    Try brokering. You need absolutely no money only commitment and patience.

    Using Fiver and Fivesquid perhaps. I actually do this sometimes. It can make you a few bucks to purchase a hosting package and domain name.

    Offer something on Fivesquid for about $10. When you receive an order for your service or product you may then search for the exact thing on Fiverr and order the service on Fiverr for $5.

    You can make an easy $4.50 off one transaction. And with the right product and small but effective marketing strategy you can easily earn a few dollars.

    Even better sell your own skills and earn the full $5-$10.

    Its really simple.

    Hey, sorry to hear about that! You'll get back on your feet though soon enough, don't worry!

    If you are looking for fast cash just to help you out right now, I would look at offering gigs on Fiverr, brokering services as other warriors have mentioned, or doing some sort of affiliate marketing around people you know already (so you don't need to spend money marketing).

    If you want to start building something that can grow bigger in the future, more long-term, with $0 as an investment I would simply start a blog about a niche you are passionate about. In the beginning you don't really need to pay for traffic, you can simply add a link to it in your signature on this forum, other forums, post to social media about it, comment on similar blogs about it, lots of ways!

    Good luck!

    I started with 0$ doing Dropshipping.

    I got a supplier I thought I could work with, Got a really shitty free template and listed some products for free on eBay ( 50 free listings/ month and they often have a promotions for free listings ).

    I did a handful of sales... decided I could make money.. paid for a slightly less crappy template ( with cash from original sales ) and did better. Took the profits from there and tried Amazon and eCommerce sites.

    Long story short, leverage my unique skills ( programming ) I set up a system where I've sold over 300K$ of products / year in the last two years @ ~10% profit. Not a million dollars, but this is money coming in every week with very little work on my part.

    So I'd say, yeah, there is a way. The above was my way and fit what I had the skill, knowledge and inclination to do.

    There are other paths to success guaranteed. Find yours and work it.

    Cheers,
    Yann

    Quick note : eBay and Amazon are not free, but done properly they allow you to list products for free, or very little, and they get paid only if you make sales. This limits the downside ( and potentially the upside too ).

    There are other marketplaces, but I haven't personally tried them yet.

  • You can't do anything that involves selling for $0. If you want to sell affiliate stuff, at bare minimum, you need a self-hosted wordpress site which will cost you like 50 bucks.

    The only way to make money starting with $0 is to offer some kind of service. If you don't have any actual skills you can probably still make money on Fiverr selling logos, Just get LogoDesignStudio Pro and sell slightly modified versions of the logos that come pre-packaged with the software. You won't make much money but after a while at it you'll have enough to start spending money on something a little more serious.

    Everyone has one or more marketable skill. What is yours? Can you write articles? Do basic logo design. Make business cards, proof read, etc

    It may not be the fastest way to earn money but any of the above can earn you basic money on sites like Freelancer and odesk. Even sites like craigslist, gumtree and other classifieds have jobs like this up.

    Like Knightsofusa already said you can take this one step further and get other people to do the jobs for you via fiverr and make money brokering.

    I am glad you are getting back in the game. Forget your past. Control your future by taking it one day at a time. If I were you I would invest in myself first. That way when you have some extra cash in the near future you will hit the ground running.

    Good Luck on your endeavors.
