Make money without a website?

51 replies
Hey,


I was wondering if there are really any good ways to make money without having a website?

Most of the ebooks I get deal with making a website doing SEO and all of that so are there really any good ways to make money without a website?

I am sure there are methods out there I just haven't found them

    They are plenty mate, here are a few off the top of my head;

    Provide services - Article writing, creating backlinks, being a virtual assistant, online data entry stuff. You can do this by going over to freelancing/outsourcing sites and bidding on projects. Also check here; Wanted - Members Looking To Hire You

    CPA and Youtube - Create simple youtube videos using powerpoint and free screen recording software. Add some music, give some information away and post your CPA link in the video and the description.

    Provide local offline services - Contact businesses in your area and offer your services. Build Google Places pages or improve their onpage/offpage SEO.

    Sky's the limit. Just use your imagination.

      Thanks! I never really thought about that.. The youtube and CPA seems to be the best one for me right now.

        So I guess you have a talent on making videos. In making one, make sure to place your contact information and services you provide at the end or beginning of your videos. This is called "call-to-actions" so that in case viewers would like to avail your service/s they would know how to get in touch with you. Also, make sure that your videos add value to the viewers and make one for each niche to get a broad type of clients in the future.

      I am not sure that picking the phone is a good idea. People have been spammed on the phone for over 30 years. If I got a phone from a marketer, I will end the call so fast that he wouldn't realize what happened. Moreover, it is very easy to get in trouble if you are not aware of the phone numbers who already asked no marketing and submitted it. That can get you in trouble

    There was a recent WSO for less than $5 or so that was really good and talked about just that...

    It was about going offline and charging $20 a head and doing small training sessions teaching people how to make family legacy books and such...

    http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-special-offers-forum/411480-warrior-special-offer-day-over-2000-sold-380-day-complete-business-model-under-5-bucks-yes.html

    There are *tons* of topics offline like that where you can make easy money and provide a real service. I used to do family legacy videos for people and it was a terrific little gig. Even interviewed several World War II veterans and created documentaries for them to give to their grand children and great grand children, etc...

    Think of ways you can bridge technology with the retired generation - how you can "help" them (such as the family legacy suggestions) with topics they cherish and you'll do very well.

    It is also great for someone of your age because you'll "learn" a lot in the process as well... and you can easily do it on the weekends, etc...

      I think you can do so without building a website, but would think you would want your own domain to at least put a squeeze page on.

      Then you can build your list (via solo ads etc.) and then provide value to that list via emails and post videos to your 'site'. And promote your own products/affiliate offers to the list.

      So don't think you need to have a website in terms of a Wordpress blog that you do SEO on and try to get search engine traffic from, but more a website where you just host your squeeze pages and a bit of info about yourself, and where you can upload videos and content specifically for your list.

    Find a sponsor that can issue coupon codes then simply publicize the codes. When people use the codes, you'll make money. A website is absolutely not necessary. If you are interested in trying something like this, leave me a PM.

    Please excuse me if I'm slightly changing the subject, or if my observation/question is otherwise unwelcome, but ...

    (There had to be a "but", after that, didn't there?).

    This question's asked here periodically, and it always makes me (being almost insatiably curious) wonder why people are asking it.

    Being also a confirmed, certified, approved, licensed, double-opted-in skepchick, I suspect that a proportion of the people asking it are asking because they imagine that "having a website" necessarily involves (a) something pretty difficult and technically complicated, or (b) spending money, or (c) having a credit-card or PayPal account. And it just doesn't.

    There are relatively quick, relatively easy ways to "have a website" which is yours, and self-hosted (i.e. not like "Blogger" and "Squidoo", with all their problems, risks and lack of security), and on your own domain-name, without spending any money, without needing a credit-card and without needing a PayPal account.

    So, I'm just wondering: would it help you to know something about that, and might it change your mind about "not having a website"? (If not, then fair enough, of course).

      Well.. I don't really want to make a site and have to do all of the SEO get traffic and stuff like that I am looking for something faster like selling or reselling stuff..

      The price of the domains really don't effect me unless I don't have any money of course

    Look into mobile marketing. I know that our company for example pays affiliates 25% recurring (meaning over and over if your not familiar with the term) on sales. Recurring income obviously builds, the more people you get the more you make and so on. Approaching local businesses with this service and selling them on the plans, or even better.. providing the service for them can net you some big bucks when you add set-up and service fees with that commission.

    Well, one of the best ways to make money online without a site is offering a service on fiverr or forums.

    There are dozens of ways to make money without a website,
    but I would STILL want some place that was sort of a "home-base."

    While you could use a profile on Facebook or other such sites,
    you run the risk of them some day deleting your site for whatever
    reason that may sound trivial to you.

    So, I'd start with my own site.

    However, you can:
    - Post articles all over the place pointing directly to affiliate
    products. I prefer sending them to my site FIRST and building
    a list (an asset with real value).
    - Compile/write ebooks and sell them from dozens of sites
    ranging from Amazon on down.
    - Set up a channel on YouTube pointing to you and your
    products. I've seen people build followings into the
    millions there... but you are at YouTube's mercy.
    - Become a registered expert on somebody else's community
    site. That's not a totally bad idea because then you are
    also leveraging exiting community traffic.
    - Run ppc adds on Google, Facebook, or other networks.
    Tricky but that is the sole business model for a LOT of
    people that I know, both online and predominantly
    brick-and-mortar businesses.

      Same here.

      Otherwise you don't really have an asset-based business at all. You can create "a job for yourself", at best, but not so much a business based on assets (sites/lists) that appreciate in value.

      If you don't own your own real estate (and it's not like it costs anything) you'll always be subected to the whims/TOS/interpretations of others, and always reliant on their contintuity/reliability/changes/goodwill rather than on your own.

      Even to promote a service properly, you need a website - and are putting yourself at a huge disadvantage, without one.

    It is a lot better if you have your own website, however if you have not any website, you can join freelancing sites or even if you can think fiverr to offer your services. Whatever you know, do it and get rewards.

    I think with the ability to create Facebook pages now, it is easier than ever to make some money online without a website. You can promote affiliate offers, CPA programs, your own products, etc.

    With that said, I agree with Willie in his post above. If you build these pages on Facebook, the success could be short lived if they decide to change policies or just shut your page down for some reason. Many people have experienced this with Squidoo, Hubpages and other similar sites.

    My recommendation would be to focus on learning how to build a website. Once you know how to do that you can start building online assets that YOU control. I recommend learning WordPress, but there are lots of content management systems around. It is actually a lot easier to learn how to build websites today than it was five years ago.

    Good luck! I wish I got started at 14. Good for you.

    As for me, I make roughly $5000 a month through affiliate marketing and do not need my own website. I advertise an online dating site that pays really well for free signups. I utilize geo-targeted banners placed on some friend's adult sites and blogs, facebook ads, youtube, porntube, and craigslist for traffic sources. I do various types of offline advertising at times and I also have a very targeted adult email list that market to once a month.

    All of the above suggestions are great, but really you need a website to succeed online. You cannot have your own product, setup landing pages or build a reputation without one. And building one isn't difficult. While you can still make money without a website, it's much better to have one,

    Yes you can, if you are into writing articles, you can provide your services as an article writer, copywriter, re-writer, blog commenter or probably a ghostwriter. There are sites that will cater to that as you can check Odesk.com or Freelancer.com for the services you can provide as a writer. Or you can try mobile marketing, offline marketing for instance.

    Fiverr, oDesk, Freelancer and Warrior to Hire section are problably the best choices to earn money without website.

That's what I think.

    Find a product to promote where you make good commission on each sale. Generally, you will get the biggest commissions on digital products. Digital products are defined as something that is downloaded directly to a customer's computer after purchasing, like electronic books or software. Since there is no extra cost per unit, no inventory and no shipping, the commissions are much greater than on regular "physical" goods. The most common commission on digital products is 50%.

      There's no requirement to have a website, but depending what you want to do it can help credibility. I'm not a fan of using sites like blogger.com, etc, since IMO they make you look amateurish.

      What are your skills? So you're not good at making websites (else you'd have made one already)... OK, going after those topics is a waste of your time and effort.

      Can you write? Make flashy advertising music videos? Are you comfortable on camera, and look / sound good doing reviews and promotions? Can you make interesting training videos?

      There are lots of posts here saying "how about Fiverr", but strangely it seems those posters have forgotten that there is not just one micro-job site out there to post your skills at. (Ahem.)

      Don't under-value your skills. Just because Fiverr restricts jobs to $5, doesn't mean other sites do, or that anything you can do is "only" worth $5. If you are interested in promoting your skills at higher values, you can post at sites where you can set higher prices, and there's not the "spam" factor or over-crowding like at Fiverr.

    Website is not a requirement. But like most of the warriors here said, it's good to have one because that's where you can promote yourself and build a personal brand.

    And yes of course, it is possible to make money without a website. If you offer a service, you just have to convince them that you can do the job. You can start by offering it on online forums like this and then build your reputation as a reliable person who can deliver. That was what I did when I first started.

    That is just one suggestion and I can continue on and on, but please don't limit yourself and stop trying to make money online just because you don't have a website. Good luck!

    Gotta agree with offering services-

    Although it isn't exactly passive income, very few methods truly offer passive income.

    If you can write, make videos, design websites, etc. then you can make pretty good money- and you don't need a website to get started.

    Hi Everyone,

    I made a free video presentation on this recently.

    Essentially you have two choice provide a service, or create a page on a web 2.0 site such as blogger/wordpress.

    Providing a service will give you a better, quicker, longer term income. While creating a web 2.0 page will give you an understanding of copy-writing, keywords and competitor analysis.

    Good-luck,
