5 Ways How To Earn Money Online Without Investment
Make Money Online by Answering Surveys
I personally tried making money online by answering simple survey questions. Unfortunately, I learned more things about these surveys and survey companies than what I had earned answering them. Here are some of the things I learned during the time I answered those surveys.
- If you live outside the United States, you’re chances of earning money answering surveys are not that good
- It takes time to make money answering survey
- Some survey questions are just plain ridiculous
- If you’re under 18 years old, the chances of you being sought for by a company to answer their survey is very slim
You can make anywhere from $0 to hundreds of dollars answering survey questions online. Now, to make it easier for you, here’s a list of legitimate websites that you can sign up for that actually pays you whenever you reach their minimum payout.

Sell Your Stuff Online
One of the easiest ways you can make money online without investment is selling the stuff you don’t need in the Internet. Start cleaning your home or room, and determine the things that you’re not using anymore. If you think it can still be used by someone, then don’t throw it away. Keep it for a while until you find a buyer for it.
Another good thing about selling your stuff online is that it won’t cost you anything, it’s totally FREE. You can sell your stuff on eBay, Craigslist or by posting an ad on your social networking accounts like on Facebook or even in your Google+ account.
Become A Freelancer and Start Making Money Online
If you’ve got skills in writing, editing, social marketing, web design, translating or just about anything that can useful for someone online, then you can become a freelancer, and start earning money online by finishing different projects or tasks.
Becoming a freelancer is easy, all you got to do is sell yourself, or more specifically your skills, to other people. The hard part of becoming a freelancer is that there are already thousands of other freelancer today trying to earn money online.
The good thing about becoming a freelancer is that there are sites dedicated to help you. For you to increase your chances of scoring a gig, you can create your profile and post your resume on the following sites where most clients look when they need help on something:
- People Per Hour
As a beginner, you’re going to have a hard time finding clients, so building your reputation as a freelancer can be hard as well.
Unless you got some connections that can get you customers, then you’ll have to find clients on your own.
Start A Website Using Blogger and Monetize It Using Google Adsense
Blogger is an online blogging platform, just like WordPress, that can be used by anyone for free. You can even have your own domain name, but your domain will have an extension like this one, “domainname.blogspot.com”.
If you want to get the usual domain name without extension that is easier to remember and to type like my domain (“moneysavingdude.com”), then you’ve got to spend more or less $10 to get one.
Now, once you have sufficient content and get your site some visitors, you can monetize your site using Google Adsense. Adsense is also free just like Blogger, and they are both managed by Google. All you need for both is a Google account, and you must be at least 18 years old for you to get accepted in the Google Adsense program.
Your earning may vary depending on your niche, the number of people who visits your site, and how you place those ads on your website. You can easily get a hundred dollar earnings, which is the minimum payout, within a month if you’re site is receiving a reasonable number of visitors from search engines.
Oh. One more thing, I just want to tell you that blogging or creating your own website isn’t easy. If you want to earn money doing it, then there’s a possibility that you really have to spend your money for you to earn a good income out of it. It also takes time, a lot of time actually, so before you start blogging make sure that you’ve got the time, patience, and dedication to manage your own website.
Now, don’t despair. There’s a lot of really good, FREE information on the internet about starting a blog or a website. That’s how I got started. There are some people online who are willing to share a whole heap of really useful information. I suggest you check out some of that free information to get started. One blogger I can highly recommend is Yaro Starak. Yaro has been blogging for years and he has a great site with heaps of free information. He also has a lot of great interviews you can listen to for ideas . I have been following Yaro for a while and so I can highly recommend him. Below is a link to one of his free resources.
If you have already tried blogging before, and you want to take it to the next level, then here are some tools and products that I believe can help you out in achieving your blogging goals and start making more money online ASAP.
I get all my domains at NameCheap, a place where you can get different types of domain names at a very cheap price, and also they give you a FREE WhoisGuard for one year, an item that can help protect your identity and keep your email address away from spammers.
Now, when it comes to web hosting, I only recommend the two best web hosting providers today that still offer their services for a very reasonable price: HostGator and BlueHost.
I personally use HostGator‘s web hosting services because they have all I need when it comes to web hosting. I was also able to set up a website without any website experience and without exerting too much effort the first time I started blogging. They also have an awesome customer support, so whenever a problem arises you can contact them and get the problem resolved as soon as possible.
As for BlueHost, I read a lot of positive reviews about them, and they are trusted by millions all over the world. If you’re the kind of person who is always looking for freebies, then BlueHost is the right web hosting for you because they give out a FREE domain name when you sign up. You can even host unlimited domains, get unlimited email accounts, and unlimited hosting space.
Become An Affiliate and Sell Other People’s Products
Another thing that you can do to earn money online without investment is by selling other people’s products and/or services. You can sell those products and/or services on your website, your social networking accounts, or by sending emails to people you know, all depending on the terms given on the affiliate program that you choose.
You can earn anywhere between $0.01 to hundreds of dollars for every referral or purchases that people who used your link make. It may sound easy, but affiliate marketing also takes time just like blogging, some great strategic planning, and of course, a little bit of luck for you to earn a lot doing it.
Making money online is easier now than ever before. There are several other ways you can do to earn money online without investment, and those five listed above are just some of them. With your skills, dedication and a bit of luck you can make anywhere between a few hundred dollars to a full-time income online.
