Make Money_No or Little Investment

Is there really a system/method of making money, however little, without any investment? I am tired of struggling along on my own and want mentoring and have found where. My problem is not having the where-with-all (money) to get the training I need.

I don't expect it to pay much but if I can generate $25 a week I can get the training and pay for other needed resources. In other words, whatever I make will be seed money to get started with. I've seen a bunch of these type WSO's offered here but the ones I have purchased did not work or were too complicated for me and I could not make them work.

I'm not in any way techy and have little experience in IM, so I am looking for something simple and that WORKS. Something to generate at least $25 per week. Everything that I have looked into and that interests me takes working capitol to make it work. I haven't that capitol but I am willing to work for it. Not looking for a hand out, just a leg up!

If you know of such an animal, please point me to it.

Thanks, swtp43 (alex)

Once your site gets to be a good size, you can start directly promoting it to people by making posts on social media, forums, blogs, and other things of the sort. You could easily generate $25 a week if you do this, and your cost will be extremely low, or nonexistent if you choose to use a free blog service to do this.
      First I would like to say thank you for you input. It was well received.
      Funny thing! I just received an offer from Spencer Haws for his LongTail Platinum Pro. I have the LT Pro but not the upgrade. From your post I assume you have experience with this. So, would you recommend getting the Platinum version for the $17/mo fee?

      I was going to try Adsense but never could understand the program. Now I have a ton of material on it and maybe will give it go. For now though, I have decided to focus on selling Fiverr Gigs.

      I don't want to go in different directions and accomplish nothing. That had been my problem in the past. I want to concentrate and focus on one thing until I am confident that I know it well enough to make money with it at my will and not by accident.

      Since I'm only beginning with Fiverr and arbitrage, do you think it would behoove me to get the upgrade to platinum anyway? I don't know that a keyword tool would really benefit me with that.

      Thanks, swtp43 (alex)

    You can get a domain name for $10 and a year's worth of hosting for less than $30. Once you have your own website and hosting there's no limit to what kind of content you can produce and market.

      That's $40... You can get both of those things for $13.

    You might want to check out the site Writer Help Wanted by Alice Seba and Ron Douglas. It's about all the different ways you can make money writing. There's a "jobs" section, where you can submit articles on a variety of topics and get paid and a bunch of other stuff.

    Offering a service is usually the fastest, most reliable, no-cost way to make money.

    If you have any skill that someone else doesn't have, I bet you can get them to pay you to do it for them.

    If you can write half-decently (6th grade level), you can write articles on iWriter.com.
    The pay starts low, but if you keep at it you can quickly find yourself earning much more.

    I personally know someone who was broke and depressed. Then he started with iWriter, got rejected the first few times, but kept at it, and before I turned around he was making $1,000/month.

    Then he got tired of it and is now running a membership site, among other stuff.

    But the point is: he needed money desperately, and that's how he did it. Once he had the security, he went on to pursue bigger things.

      Thanks for the input it was well received.
      I tried my hand at writing and truth be told I am too slow at it. I have the ability to write well but having dyslexia it take me forever to write one simple paragraph. I have however, looked into getting Dragon Speaking, a voice recognition software which would help me defeat my dyslexia.

      But, that brings me back to my initial problem of being short on working capitol. I have since posting here and getting these responses, begun looking into Fiverr arbitrage and I am confident I can do that with very little investment. That, I believe will give me the seed money I need to move forward.

      Thank you, swtp43 (alex)

    If you can handle making posts on websites, doing transactions on Paypal and sending emails, then you can do Arbitrage. You don't need any particular skill since you will be hiring others to do the work of your clients.

    The system is not complicated either. Just consider yourself the middleman between a client and a supplier and the difference between the price a client pays and what the supplier charges is your profit.

      Thank you for the idea of arbitrage. I am currently learning to navigate Fiverr and checking out all the different offers in all the different categories. It's incredible what people will do for money. And all the services being offered.

      I'm sure there is more to it than meets the eye, but if I can't do this then I might as well hang it up.

    My suggestion would be to get into eBook writing. You can find popular niche's online and within a few hours write a book and have it up for sale on amazon within 24 hours. Once the book is complete and you start making passive income. You will have to make sure you write in a niche that is selling.

    To be honest, you need to fine-tune your mindset..

    No one really trains others for free..

    And $25 a week is incredibly small aim to have, no matter currency conversion rates are crazy high in your country..

      To Mr Hatch above,

      If you READ my post and not just skim it you'll notice that nowhere did I mention or ask for FREE training. I asked only to be directed to some product instructing how to make money with little or no investment. ONE that really works and not just touted as the holy grail in the WSO's.

      Thank you for you input though!

    To be really honest,

    You should treat Internet Marketing like a REAL business.

    Like in any other offline business e.g. you have to invest money for your product or for marketing or for employees, etc. to push/scale your business and make (more) money.

    I actually don't know any business without a starting investment...

    Like BradFord said, you have to choose your mindset a little bit and think on long-term, seriously!

    Cheers,
    Peter

    You want to make $25 per week so you can further invest in your business?

    No problemo, my recommendation would be to use YouTube to drive traffic to an affiliate offer (since you don't have money to build a list yet).

    Here's a post I did where I shared a bit of how I go about creating videos to drive traffic:

    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post9747481

    ^^ Just click that link there. (And no, it's not MY videos that are crap, that's the name of the thread I posted in. )

    In any case, if you really want to make money fast, get an extra job or work overtime.

    After all, it's just $25 per week you need, right?

    Just thought I'd share my thoughts on YouTube since I already made a post on it.

    Hope you get things rolling,
    Daniel

    I believe that if you don't know how to make money without money... you're probably going to struggle to make money WITH money. Sometimes you have to play "alchemist" and create money from thin air. Use your free marketing talents and implement all of the top free marketing strategies that you can think of. I just hope once you receive your money.... you don't blow it on something like traffic-exchange traffic to make your Alexa ranking lower.

      Actually it is difficult to start with low investment, but definitely not impossible.

      What I would suggest is you go with freelancing, it's the quickest and easiest way to start with.

      Go to 'fiverr' and browse through all the gigs/services people are offering.
      If you can offer (or learn to offer) similar services, you'll be good to go.

      Hope that helps!
      All the best

        I am doing just that now. But instead of doing the service I can sell it elsewhere. I was not aware of the arbitrage method or capability with all the services being offered there until now. I stumbled across a short pdf on arbitrage and lights went on and bells went off.

        Thanks, swtp43 (alex)

    You could start with something like fiverr (see what others are offering) or become a freelancer using sites like odesk... but of course that is just to get started and as you mentioned you will want to invest in some sort of training or course... IM is a great industry and is relatively inexpensive to get in involved, and you can grow a highly profitable business on small budget.

    I highly suggest that you focus on building a mailing list no matter what niche you get involved in... it will be your biggest asset and there are multiple ways to monetize it.

      Your right a list is a must have to make any headway in this industry. I had always avoided building one because I did not think I had anything anyone would want to know or hear about. With my mind refocused that has all changed.

          You can resell Fiverr gigs on sites for Freelancers like Upwork. Register on this sites, create professionally looking profiles there. Buy 5 gigs on Fiverr and use them as your "portfolio". Then you will get orders on Upwork and forward them to Fiverr. Here's an example, there are people on Upwork looking for someone to create them an infographic for $20. I contact them and offer to do it for only $15. When I get the deal I go to Fiverr and purchase it for $5. As soon as my order is complete I come back to Upwork and give it to my buyer. $10 profit. It's hard to get your very first orders and reviews but later it'll be easy. Use multiple platforms + social media sites and everything's gonna be alright. Let me know if you'd like to hear more ideas.

            Holy Moly - That is exactly what I have decided to do. I stumbled across an ebook on Fiverr Arbitrage and the lights just went on. Funny how things like that just happen. I certainly would like to hear more ideas and with your permission I will PM you. Let me know please.

    The easiest way is to create an info product, create a squeeze page, and build your list.

    I use Google Docs for my writing. GetResponse has a free trial.

        Thank you for taking the time to respond and for your offer of help. It is much more than I expected. Right now I am focusing on Fiverr. Going through all the categories and seeing what services are being offered. I intend to begin offering the services myself on other platforms as the creator and then buying them at Fiverr. Basic arbitrage!

        I stumbled across an ebook on arbitrage and BINGO the lights went on! This only costs me my time which I have plenty of being retired. Once I can get this set up I will contact you and maybe take you up on your offer of help or direction.

        Thanks much, swtp43 (alex)
