How to Make Money Online for Free
There are lots of people looking for free ways to make money online from home – without paying any money to start. The question is, “Is it really possible to make money online without spending money?”
In my opinion, the answer is, “Yes, it is possible – but there is a trade off.”
What I mean is that you can find ways to make money from home without investing any money, but you may need to work a little harder, it may take longer to earn money, and you may earn less than you’d like. In other words, you can’t get your cake and eat it too.
The reason that I say this is that typically when we invest in a franchise or business opportunity, we are paying for a turn-key income opportunity that someone has spend time, money and effort to develop for us. If we don’t want to pay for the turn-key opportunity, we need to spend the time, money and effort in creating the opportunity ourselves.
As I’ve mentioned in a previous article, if you want to make money online without spending money up front, you will need to sell a service, because you can’t acquire any products to sell without paying money for them. In addition, the services you sell can’t require that you use supplies or equipment that you need to buy, because they cost money as well.
I don’t want to paint a bleak picture – because remember – we still have options. However, you want to look at the situation realistically so that you know what to look for when it comes to making money online – for free.
All that said, let’s take a look at what we can do.
1. The first thing to look at is all of the free resources online. Two big ones are (1) free web pages or blogs and (2) companies who will pay you to advertise on your site (free web pages, blogs). If you can go work developing good creative and interesting content on a blog, for , you can get paid by advertisers. Here’s how.
Another way you can use this technique is using sites like Squidoo or Hubpages. Some prefer these sites because they have built-in templates and guidelines to follow.
2. You can work as a freelancer in a variety of different fields. There are companies looking to outsource work to individuals with computer skills, design skills, marketing experience, specialized knowledge in particular field and lots more. If you can fill a need, you can work on a contract basis for different companies without even leaving your home.
3. You can use a site like Fiverr to connect with people needing small jobs done, like logo design, audio files creation, cartoons, videos and more. The jobs are small, and the pay is not high, but this can lead to bigger jobs and more pay if you do good work.
As you have probably already realized, there are potentially hundreds of niches within each of these three areas, make the income opportunities from just these 3 ideas – huge. If you have been wondering how to make money on the internet, this can be a great place to start.
