Any methods on how to make money online with no start up cash? (on house arrest)

by lilphilupt 35 replies
Hi guys, do you know of any methods on how to make money online with no start up cash ? I'm on house arrest and lost my job from it, I really need to start bringing in some income quick I have a 1 year old son that lives with me, I've been applying for endless jobs but the house arrest thing is getting in the way with me being accepted for another job. I have plenty of time on my hands to work any hours and such... Im definitely willing to implement and take action I just need some guidance on what works for no cash investment... Any advice or suggestions will be very appreciated... I'm ready to learn and take action or if possible work with someone and help in anyway that I can in order to make some cash.

- Also to add "I'm not a criminal" or nothing like that. I had my registered firearm that I didn't properly transport back from the gun range thats all, Where im living now, they are very strict on how you transport your firearm. The first time something like this has ever happened to me, my first time even getting into some type of trouble with the law.

    Hey lilphilupt

    Great post bro - I feel you on your struggle and I can relate.

    Honestly, there is no such thing as free. What I mean is that if you're not coming out of pocket to make money online, you'll make up for it in your time/energy expended.

    Right now i'm working with a very low cost program ( $5 out of pocket ) and it has a full funnel with back end products for bigger commissions and it comes with traffic sources - I use my own traffic sources and I have a system that I work everyday full-time.

    Feel free to checkout my signature or better yet send me a PM on Facebook at Joshua Nazir Yahshua Mayers - would love to connect with you bro.

    Hope to hear from you

    -Joshua

      Yes I can make money online and offline ( only at a job ) but i'm on house arrest, I have to let the home detention people know 2-3 days ahead of time if I have a interview scheduled. Lol I'm not a criminal, This is the first time something like this has happened, I had my registered firearm that I didn't properly transport back from the gun range thats all, Where im living now, they are very strict on how you transport your firearm.

        Thats not an unworkable lead time. In fact for many interviews you will get more lead time than that.

        The world is littered with people who tried to make some money writing etc. Bottom line is your one year old son. Getting a job from an interview scheduled 3 days in advance is much much much more likely than making any consequential income online.

        Concentrate your efforts on what is likely not a long shot.

    Hey, sorry to hear about your troubles, and I hope things start to turn around for you.

    Do you have any online skills? If so you could try offering some sort of service on Fiverr or Upwork.

    Along the same vein, there are always people looking for virtual assistants. It's not incredible pay, but you're able to work from home, and it's better than nothing. I'm not exactly sure where's the best place to find those types of jobs (possibly Upwork?), but a quick Google search should point you in the right direction.

    Good luck man.

    I don't know your background or experience, but many people offer services, which are often free to provide (no startup usually). Graphics, writing, programming, some other digital expertise, etc, can earn you a great living.

    Just brainstorming.
    Fiverr.com - List any services you could provide, this can be very profitable.
    Writing content - offer your services on various sites
    HubPages - you can earn some money,...eventually

        Besides freelance writing for others, you may want to consider Medium in addition. If you have some stories you have wrote, publish them there. You have the choice to make your writings available free to all to read or for members only (that's where you earn income). I think a combination of free/locked (members) content is the route to go so that you become established.

        They recently launched their partner program for writers along with the member program. Things are just getting established but I see some writers are reporting some results - https://medium.com/search?q=medium%20partner%20program

        First join at Medium.com to get a feel of things. Start following some publications/people/tags in the niches you are interested in to get a feel of things. See what others are doing and see what & who is popular. When you're ready then you can join the partner program at https://medium.com/creators . You can publish things on Medium before that though. If you have stuff from when you wrote as kid... publish it & let people know how old you were when you wrote it. A chronological release of your material may catch peoples interest as the community is made up of writers/readers. I see most successful writers there also network well on Medium as well... they're social.

        You may consider publishing your stories in a collection to sell as book on Amazon (paperback & Kindle). Again I don't know what you have already wrote or the quality. Yes - you can promote books/websites on Medium as well.

        I had created a thread a while back about guest posting (I should update it) but it does provide sources of sites/blogs that will pay you for writing - see https://www.warriorforum.com/main-in...ernatives.html

        If you've been writing stories randomly as a kid - that means you like writing! Getting paid on something you truly enjoy makes your work easier. I recommend doing all the above. Getting a regular job to provide cashflow until the writing "pays off" may be necessary as you likely realize.

        I wish you the best & hope things start looking up for you.

    I think freelancing may be the way to go - if you make submitting 'bids' a full time job for a couple weeks...you'd be amazed at the work you could have by the end of that time.

    I've done it myself so know it's possible.

    Also, go back through this forum and read your old threads - maybe one of those ideas or pieces of advice will give you an 'aha' moment.

    Whether you're a criminal or not has nothing to do with effective marketing strategies. Some people might gripe about the "i'm not a criminal" thing, so consider editing your post and removing all details about your current state right now. Just state your request, question, etc.... and we will help you.

    Now, you should know that your question has been asked 1,000's of times here on WarriorForum. The search bar at the top of the page will be your best friend. Type in "how to make money online with no start up cash" in there, and you will see a TON of similar posts - with great answers to the question.

    I disagree - it was an honest post and no reason to change anything. You can't rewrite reality to suit other people.

    There are some offline businesses that have customer service agents who work from home - take a day or two and spend that time seriously looking into every possible opportunity for earning some money without leaving home.

    Sorry to hear about your circumstance. I hope you can turn it around.

    Starting with no capital can be very difficult.

    If I were you I would start by looking for freelancing jobs for simple tasks such as link building, article writing, etc to raise some money. Once you get this going for a bit then maybe you could have some money saved to also try other things.

    My ideas are :
    - Learn something in which you have interest and start selling your service as a freelancer at marketplaces.
    - Print on demand is a good selection now if you are good in designing, you can apply free methods to get sales.
    - Create some high quality YouTube videos, monetize and make money.
    - Create a blog with rich contents, monetize and earn money.

      The OP needs quick cash to sustain himself. What you're suggesting is hardly possible for him now because those tasks (i.e. high quality video, rich blog post) call for high-end skills that can't be developed overnight.

      A better suggestion would be writing articles on firearms (instant cash). These kinds of content can't be produced by everyone, but they are high in demand and the pay is very well. He should contact the owners of those blogs and forums directly that deal with firearms and let them know his current circumstance and what he got (experience) for them. I think finding two or three such clients will resolve his problems.

    Write a short e book on gun safety and then use it as a lead magnet. Build a List of subs who are interested in finding more info. on gun safety, laws, different types of guns etc..etc.. and write other e-books. Maybe make some videos of you shooting at range etc..etc..

    Plenty of stuff right there. Think outside the box

    you have to prioritize your skillsets . You need to build up relationships with in your communities by providing solutions to peoples problems first. I would advise you to engage in this forum and other locations where your audience might be . Problem solving is what makes you sales .So you aren't paying in cash which is a good thing but your time is an investment in itself.

    Definitely patiently, persistently and diligently search for an offline job Lil P, only because the internet is a poor vehicle for making money online if that is your prime driver, and it is a wonderful vehicle for making money online 2-3 years from now, if you give 100% of your energy to learning a skill and rendering valuable service.

    My niece is 15 months old. She is supported by her parents. But I know, watching her 2-3 days some weeks, overnight, etc, that if I had to support her before I became a full time pro blogger, no way I'd look in her eyes and feel that I could devote 100% of my effort to learning a skill and rendering useful service, and detach from money. No way you can do that with your 1 year old son.

    Get a job my friend, and then, when you see those paychecks come in, start your online business from a detached, intelligent, abundant space.

    Keep at it; those jobs will open up, even if you are on house arrest.

    All the best.

    Hey lilphilupt,
    Sorry to hear about your troubles. Since you have lots of time in hand, why don't you try your hand in dropshipping? I have written a FREE mini guide that might be helpful for you. You can download it from here.

    You can start blogging or start a YouTube channel. You can blog/vlog about how you are dealing with house arrest or taking care of a new born. Or if you have a passion, you can pursue that.

    You can also research about various gun laws in various cities and create a website based on that. There might be several others who are not aware about the various gun laws in their respective city. You can write an ebook based on the topic and sell. Write an ebook for each city and publish in Kindle or on your website. You can post links on various gun related forums to publicize tour book.

    If you are not into online business, you can try renting a room in Airbnb or start hosting pets of busy individuals at your home for a nominal fee. Also you are creative, you can create art works or hand made items and sell on Etsy.

    Be creative and do something unique. Turn your situation into a blessing.

    You have Numerous Options. Here are few of them:

    1) Start selling on Fiverr-whatever skills you have like writing content, designing, Logos, advice and tons' more. This is the best place to start when someone has no money at all.

    2) Start Reselling- You don't need any money to start reselling, just contact the suppliers for products and services, ask for resell price and then find buyers and sell them for profit. Few of the example things which you can resell are: Digital products or services etc.

    And many many more. Earning online is a breeze if you know what you are doing.

    You can do affiliate marketing with direct linking method. So by that way you will not need to invest to buy domain, hosting, auto response etc...You don’t need to invest anything like that.

    Just take your affiliate links then promote them to the social media, face book, instagram, Twitter, forum...

    Trying to promote as much as you can. That’s my advice!

    Sorry about your situation. But you will come out stronger.

    I found out this one accidentally. Sign you free at the site below. It is a place to get leads and prospects interested only in MLM.

    http://www.ewealthsuccess.com/mlmgateway

    Thereafter, grab their affiliate link and begin to tell others about the site. Most of the people interested in MLM do not know who to show their business except their family and friends. They will love you for this.

    http://www.ewealthsuccess.com/mlmgateway

    When they sign up free and upgrade, you get a fantastic commission plus this is residual income paid monthly.

    I signed up with the site and told three people. Two of these upgraded and I made money. I have continued to make some money this way.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks.

  • You may want to give LeapForce a go. They do Google search quality ratings. Work at home under contract. Contracts are 6 months at a time. Back in 2015 when I worked for them it was $12 per hour. You have to be a self starter and burnout comes easy. You do a lot of learning on your own time too. But they pay on-time.

    Hi buddy, first of all, i will have to ask you if you have any competences on writting? cause there are some good platforms out there where freelancers make good money, as translators, proofreaders, contents writers, etc... You can make good money over there, and no nreed to go out, or make any investment, but just your time. Check out a platform like UP-works, and there trust me you could make it! wish you luck .
