How To Make Good Money Online With Zero Investments?

46 replies
Hello guys, I'm Konrud and today I'm making over $3,000 a month. Maybe not too much, but it is good result, taking into consideration the fact that I began earning online only in 2012.

And before, in 2010-2011, all my attempts were absolutely unlucky. Sometimes I had not money even to pay for hosting

I always dreamt about my projects but my biggest problem was that I absolutely had not start-up capital for education and for investments in these projects.

Later I solved this problem by creating websites for organizations. I was phoning them and offering websites. It was hard but I could make a little capital.

And now I want to ask you, guys, have you ever been in such situation when you had no money for business online?

And what would you advice to people who are only going to start making money on the internet with zero capital?

Is it actually possible to run some kind of business online with no investments?

    First off, the word 'investment' is a bit strong. You can run an online business easily with no significant investment of capital. However, you still will have some expenses.

    I think anyone who is motivated can make money online without significant expenses or investments. The investment and expenses will be in the form of time.

    I think it's possible.
    I'm on that road right now actually.
    I didn't start with IM.
    I started out as a forum poster in odesk and now I'm working at fiverr.
    And through my earnings from fiverr, I was able to buy some domains and tried some paid hostings all from the money I earned through forum posting.
    I'm just saving some more now to buy myself a profitable site.

    When I started in 2009, I was only blogging to help Music Producers make better music. After a while I was outranking big sites without even realising it. I started getting messages from these online schools all asking to put banners on my blog.

    It was a free blogger blog by the way.

    To answer your question. Just start a blogger blog, have 100 articles & post them every 2 to 3 days. Turn your articles into videos. And add affiliate links and banners. Back then I was using listwire (free autoresponder) to collect emails.

    What I did was go to Facebook music production groups and send members a message asking to be their friends and then show them how they can improve their music. Most were interested though most just ignored me. I ended up having 2000+ "interested" friends.

    Every time I had a new post on the blog I would create a Facebook event and invite all my friends and it would go viral that's how google trusted my site, I guess haha... No Backlinks or any internet marketing tricks just pure content and Facebook traffic.

    Just read your story on your blog, interesting by the way.

    Just exactly similar like I often found in my country. No money, suck internet connections, etc. Doubted by many people, including their parents.
    More of them are given up, but there are some succeed.

    And what would you advice to people who are only going to start making money on the internet with zero capital?
    If you do not have enough capital or super skills, at least you need a few cents to pay for the internet and found a some clues to start - working (not build own business). Started working for someone else, freelance sites / microjobs are good to start, like odesk, fiverr, etc.

    Usually would be a lot of mistakes or failures to do, but do not give up, always try and learning what's exactly you want to achieve (I know, internet is like a treasure with so many ways that can help you earn money, even lost in so many making money options - so keep focus).

    Once you have earned some dollars continuously, you can aside a portion to buy hosting and domain, and start your own blog. Going socialize, always learn to be better and professional (you'll shy when recall your amateur moments).

    Make your own targets, what you'd like to achieved. And be sure to continue to try to improve your level.

        Now I think that probably guest posting can help. Even if you have not got your own blog. You can write and write so you will develop some kind of brand name. It will be much easier later to attract a lot of visitors to your site because people alredy know you.

        Or maybe make something like a show on YouTube. I know many guys make videos and get a good number of subscribers so that they can monetize their videos

    You can using free platforms (YouTube, Facebook, Blogger, etc...) though I am a big fan of moving to your own webhosted domain for your main money and squeeze pages (even blogs) as soon as you possibly can.

    In many ways people that start with less money CAN have the advantage because they are forced to figure out quickly what gets attention, what captures their market's interest and how to get them to buy things.

    Having more up-front capital buys you more time but it doesn't eliminate (or make easier) the process of figuring this out.

    If you do a good job of targeting your market, playing to your strengths (meaning choosing the method of communicating with your market that suits your interest and skills the best) and knowing what your market wants...you will win.

    I think that probably the best solution
    for anyone with no starting capital is to
    become a member of outsourcing sites.
    Of course you need to have some skills that
    you can offer which are related to internet.

    In any other case you need to invest some amount
    of money (domain name, web host, autoresponder)!
    I'm thinking on long term benefits!

  • My situation was somewhat similar to you and I have arranged my capital through freelancing. I provided different SEO link building services in various freelancing platforms. After that I started my own blog. Now I am focusing to grow my blog, after that I will get started with affiliate marketing.

    Simple, You can't. Even the OP stated that when he did not have investment capital he built websites to raise that capital. Like it or not, you need some money.

    Starting writing hubpages, didn't even monetize them at first! Just had links to clickbank products with <5 gravity haha! But then started researching and promoting and got a bit more efficient and was actually making a good $300/Month just from hubpages. Then they banned my account, but as I had a bit of success and knowledge started trying to create websites for similar sorts of products but found it more difficult to promote for a few reasons, mainly the fact that hubs already had some "pull" or ranking power than a brand new domain and also that google had just updated, I think it was panda at the time.

    But then probably one of the most important things happened, I was introduced to WF and we all know how good that is, now im at university and although I'm earning less than I was when I just had hubs I am now creating my online business instead of working "per hour" as I was before. As working it out I was working for around $6/hr which is not a great rate!

    Lessons learnt:
    1.) Set up a business dont work time for payment (hourly)
    2.) Don't try to many things at once!
    3.) Rinse and repeat the things that work!

    Thanks

    If I am in your situation, I will still go get a job first so that I will still be able to pay the bill. But one thing that I will do is to make sure that I cut down on unnecessary expenses and channel the amount of money that I have side aside for building my internet business.

    When I start to realize that the internet business is a real business, I have a different mindset about investing in my business. In fact, I feel it is crucial to invest into my own business so that I will be able to see growth at a faster rate.

    It is hard to have a full time job and do part time internet business at the same time, but it will be well worth it when the results starts to shows. There are many nice warriors here who share the way that they use to make money online and you simply just have to choose one method.

    That is how I get started in this online venture

      I'd say freelancing is a good way to start off. There are a lot of persons that are making good money simply by offering their services to others.

      Some service may include:

      Article writing
      graphic designing
      customer care
      website installation


      And ofcourse, if they are not able to carry out any of the above task, they can learn affiliate marketing and start out by promoting products using free platforms such as squidoo.com or blogger.com.

      Once they start making sales, they can reinvest in a hosting service, domain name and autoresponder to grow their online business.

    One way to make some money without investing much is going all out into social media. If you are willing to give up a lot of your time you can build a huge list of followers on twitter, tumblr, or likers on facebook. It takes a lot of time though.

    Kindle seems like a good bet as well from what I hear.

    If you don't want to invest then the best way to earn would be offering services of what you're good at. Or you can consider using Fiverr. I've seems many people there buying stuff that are totally useless but actually a fun.

    You can make money online without money to invest, but it's easier if you can invest on domain, hosting, and some tools. To have extra cash for those, think about your skills and offer services on sites like Fiverr or Odesk. Lots of people are always looking for article writers so you could offer article writing services and expect to get some orders.

    Yes, when I dived into IM, I think it was 2008, I had/ didn't want to invest much...at least nothing more than 50 bucks and I started with Bum marketing from Travis Sago! It required no money so it was great but that time's passed now! I used Squidoo too and bought a course by David Bocock for a measly 15 bucks or so! Made plenty of sales so yes, I can say I started off with nothing and always look at opportunities of doing so for free ( or little mone)! I am not big on investments and very wary of paid traffic since I don't know much about it!

    The word investment sucks for some people to build an online business you need to send traffic to an offer.

    There are so many ways to start plr adswaps giveaways mini events solo ads.

      No money, no problem.

      Do you have $1?

      If so, start building a list.

      Aweber has a a deal of $1 for the 1st 30 days.

      You can build your list with forums, videos and articles for free.

      How do you build a list the right way? see my sig. (yes I know, it was a shameless plug, but the info is truly valuable).
