How to get some money

19 replies
Ok, so I have a project I'd like to start but I can't afford to invest into it ($25 or so). I don't have web hosting atm., but I have few domain names. So my question is how could I make about $30 without website or money to invest (I have already tried Fiverr, Odesk and similar websites).

    Last year when I first started taking action I used a forum posting site called Postloop. Depending on how much time you are willing to put in, you can make $30 in a few days.

    Otherwise, find a marketable service that you can sell in and promote it.

    You could have a look at any of these sites:

    www.constant-content.com, www.fiverr.com, www.textbroker.com, www.textbroker.co.uk, www.vworker.com, www.freelancer.com, www.iwriter.com, www.odesk.com, www.elance.com, www.guru.com, and The Content Authority.

    However, many of them have a fixed date for payout, so maybe it would be better to just try and find a client to do a bit of freelance work for in the 'Warriors for Hire' section.

    EDIT: Perhaps you could sell one or two of those domains.

    There are some free hosting companies you can use with your domain, if you just need hosting to start making money.

    Free Hosting - Free Web Hosting - Free PHP Hosting - Free cPanel hosting - 000Free.com! is one place you can use (no affiliation). I used them for a little while and they are pretty good. There are others like them that can be easily found via Google.

    Just search, "free hosting with my domain."

    hey solid digital

    if you want to start an online business then you need to put aside some funds to start your business

    its exactly the same if you wanted to open up your own business in your local town or shopping center

    you wouldnt try and do it with no money

    IM is not different except you can do it for a lot less but you do still need some funds to start it

    if you set aside $100 a month for your business this would be fine as that would cover

    your hosting
    the odd domain
    a little bit of content you may have to get written
    some fiverr gigs for graphics etc
    IM tools
    the odd wso or product to increase your knowledge

    and you would still have change out of that which you could carry over to the next month

    if you get into the habit from the start of cutting corners and wanting to make some fast money then you will be in the wrong mindset from day 1 and you will struggle to ever get anywhere

    hope this gives you something to think about

    paul

    http://www.microworkers.com You can make $30 in a couple days probably. I have never used it on the worker side. I have used it to hire small tasks.

    I'm not a big fan of investing big into IM unless you have a good clue on what you're doing. But here we're talking $25, which really should be affordable. Just think about how much you're using on daily expenses, like food and stuff? You might be better of just investing those $25.

    Anyways if you're still insisting on making the money online, you might be best off with selling the domains you have, if they are decent. You could also try fiverr and odesk, but you say you have already tried them? The problem is that most sites do not pay instant, and you'll have to wait months and maybe even go through an approval process to get your money.

    Maybe you could write some articles or something, you could even go to the job section and find someone looking for some workers.

    Regards.

    Iwriter if you are good at writing.. for a 500 words article you'll earn $4.05, so in order to make $30, you'll have to write only 6 - 7 articles . . which I think is a very good place for you to start (of course, only if you're good at writing)..

    Alternatively, you could start a fiver gig, like basic designing, do some funny stuff or whatever you have to offer to them for a good $5.. ($4 profit though), again you only need 6 -7 orders to make $30..

    Mircoworkers is also a place where you can try, but I'm not sure about their payment system..

    Suggestion: Do all at once.. you'll reach your $30 much faster than you think! Who knows, Iwriter or Fiverr might just be a place for you..

    Elance, odesk etc are places you should consider participating as well..

    Hope this help,
    Jeremiah

    If I only needed $25, I'd probably go outside and try to sell something to someone. For $50.

    if you don't even have $25 to invest then you have already failed and are not serious. $25 to launch a business is nothing. sell some stuff in your house or something if you have to. i have seen people i know say they can't afford $25 or $50 or whatever to start an online business and then the next day i see them at best buy getting a new xbox game or some blu-ray movies. you just have to make starting your business your top priority.

    What do you have in skills to offer. I happen to have 2 hosting accounts, one of which im not currently using. Maybe we could trade services. I dont know much about your situation so im not going to go on how you should have $25 to invest in your future, but im willing to help.

    Walk through your neighborhood and ring doorbells offering to wash cars, clean yards and do other chores. If you really want to get started you already know how to find $30. And if you really don't know how to get $30 together then you should consider getting a job where you'll receive instructions every day from someone.

    25$ is nothing. If you don't want to spend anything you can create blog for free on blogger.

    If you really want to start your site in your own domain try to sell some junk from your house. I've recently sold some garbadge which my parents tried to push into rubbish container, old books, metallick basket, broken fridge.

      There are some excellent online and offline suggestions in this thread!

      Now, I don't know about you - but where I live and for my age and in my situation, $25 bucks is spent a lot of days before I even leave the house. It's not a lot of money. However if I were a teenager or living in a paypal forbidden country it could be a very difficult task - and offering to mow the neighbors lawn may not even be an option.

      Perhaps if you can share your age and where you live you could be given some more solid possibilities for your specific needs.

      You get money the same way everyone else does. You have to somehow earn it.

    $30 is easy to get if you could offer your services - anything you are good at. Writing, outsourcing, designing, etc.
