Here to learn ”How to make money online without paying anything”?

There are hundreds of thousands of people searching for ways to make money online every month. The thing is, making money online is not easy and it’s clearly not a get rich quick scheme. Unless you want to throw thousands of dollars into building and growing your online business, you can’t make enough money easily.

Even with money put into growing it, it still requires hard work to get your business to where you want it. The only good thing about it is that with the thousands of bucks you’re willing to spend on growing it, you can easily hire freelancers to do the hard job for you.

A freelancer is a writer or artist who sells services to different employers without a long-term contract with any of them.

There are thousands of freelancers on the Internet waiting for you to give them tasks to complete and get paid. They will write for you, they will build you a website, they will build you backlinks, they will even help you grow your online business. They just need to get paid.

You are clearly one of those hundreds of thousands of people searching for ways to make money online because you wouldn’t be here if not. Let me be the first to tell you today that those websites you’ve been to, telling you that you can make thousands of dollars online overnight are all scam. They’re just pushing their sales which is where they make their own money online.

There’s no make big money overnight on the Internet, it’s a scam, a big one! It takes time and a whole lot of strategies to make decent money online.

There are businesses that have spent thousands of dollars building and promoting their businesses but failed. They didn’t have a strategy. They could have easily hired an expert or read articles from experts specialized in their business to give them a clear vision of what they’re getting into and how to succeed in it.

Making money online can be easy only after you have successfully built your brand on the Internet. People now know you and trust you. They will buy from you if they need your products and services without a second thought.

Well, I have been talking about making money online by spending big bucks on building your business but what about making money without any investment? Is that even possible? Quite possible but requires a hard work from your side.

Since you do not have the money to pay freelancers to help make the journey easier, be prepared for hours of hard work every day. Plus you must be persistent and never get discouraged because at some point, the time will come when you will want to put an end to all the sufferings you’ve suffered that did not yield any positive result.

The mistake most people make is that they quit just right before they start seeing positive results for the hard work they put into growing their business. It take time to build trust online and if you succeed in building that trust, you’re in for the best days of your life

So how exactly do you make money online without paying absolutely nothing?


5 ways to make money online without paying anything.


1. Start a blog on a free platform


Yes, you can start blogging on free blogging platforms and start making money after building trust with Google and other search engines.

Remember that this takes months with a lot of hard work. Building trust doesn’t happen overnight. You must be consistent with publishing new unique articles. The problem most people make is blogging on topics that they are not interested in and they get tired after couple of months when they do see good results.

Do not make the same mistake. Find a niche you’re passionate about and start blogging on it. Don’t think about the money if you’re just starting, think about the happiness you get from making your ideas available to the world. Think about the happiness you get from spending time on writing about what you’re passionate about.

There are a lot of free platforms on which you can start blogging but the most used is Google blogger. You can create as many websites as you can for free. You just have to sign up with your Gmail account and start blogging. Other popular one is WordPress and it’s great too.

You don’t need much design to do if you’re just starting. Just choose any good template from the ones provided for you and you can start publishing your articles.

The good news is that you can always move to a  non-hosted domain after you’ve made enough money to get you a nice hosting package from companies like HostGator, Bluehost, SiteGround and others.

If you don’t want the or the extension, there is a company that provides free extensions like .tk, .ga and so on. This means that your website URL will look just like this : or These domains are free but they have low search visibility on search engines compared to custom domains with .com or .net extensions.

All you have to do is connect the free domain name to your blogger blog. Start publishing and with time, you will see results.

But do you just publish articles and pray that search engines rank them in the first pages? No! There are millions of websites out there competing for the same first pages.

So how do you get your articles to the first page? I will tell you it’s not an easy task if you’re just getting started. You will spend hours daily not only on writing new unique articles but growing your blog by promoting the articles you’ve already published. Even before writing an article on a keyword, you will need to spend time on deciding if the keyword is worth it.

Some articles are dead even before publishing because of the dead keywords the articles are written on.

So what do you do?


What you should do to grow your blog


1. Before doing anything at all on your blog, you need to set a meta title and meta description for your blog. This is very important to search engines.

2. Do keywords research to avoid frustration. Like I said, some articles are already dead even before they get published.


Because the articles are written on dead keywords. Dead keywords means keywords that have zero monthly search or keywords that have thousands or hundreds of monthly searches but with millions of top websites competing in search engines’ first pages for the same keywords.

If you’re just starting, there’s no way you’ll beat those top websites to search engines’ first pages for the same keywords.

Unfortunately, doing keywords research can cost you a lot of money every month but there’s a free way to do it. It’s just that you’ll have to put more effort into finding profitable keywords. There are free and paid tools to find keywords. The paid makes the job easier anyway.

3. After doing your keywords research and you have found some low competitive keywords, write unique articles on the keywords. Do not copy articles from other websites since this will have negative impact on your blog.

Don’t think search engines, especially Google, won’t catch you. Trust me, they’ll catch you and penalize you sooner or later.

4. Do On-Page SEO for your blog. This includes adding a meta description and a meta title. Also, while writing a blog post, make sure you include a meta description and meta title. Always add external links (outbound links) to your blog posts for better user experience. When you add external links to your posts, it tells Google that you care about users reading from your blog. These links should link to relevant web pages of high authority websites related to what you’re writing on. It helps users understand better what they’re looking for.

It’s also important you include internal links (inbound links) to your blog posts. This is adding relevant blog posts from your older blog to a new blog post you are writing. This helps people to discover your older posts. Adding your newly published posts to older posts too helps to direct traffic to your new post.

Include a focus keyword and optimize your images or any other forms of media. Optimizing images or any other forms of media will make the web page load faster.

For example : If an image size is 2 Mb, by optimizing it with an online tool, you can reduce it to a few hundred kilobytes. Same goes for videos and audios.

Page speed is one of the hundreds of factors used in ranking a websites by search engines.

Part of on-page SEO is using categories if you blog on different events. Tags are also important. All these help search engines understand your website and its pages even better.

5. Do off-page SEO for your blog. This includes getting backlinks from other high authority websites. Backlinking is when a website links back to one of your web pages or your entire website.

It includes social sharing of your web pages. It’s a fact you must know that you won’t be getting any traffic from search engines if you’re just starting. So you need a way to promote and let people see what you publish on your blog by sharing your posts on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and more.

You can also do blog commenting on other popular blogs that have written articles related to your niche. This will drive traffic to your blog and it is also a form of backlink. Not a strong one anyway.

The best way to get backlinks to your website is by doing guest posting. Guest posting is writing articles on other people’s blogs in exchange for a backlink to your website. There are a lot of websites that accept guest posts. Look if your niche is related to theirs before writing for them.

Of course, there are other methods to get quality backlinks from high authority domains but not as effective as guest posting.

After a long time of hard work, you will start seeing search engines directing traffic to your blog. You can then choose from numerous methods to make money from your blog. Most common method is by using Google AdSense.

Perhaps you’re thinking what good will a website hosted on free hosting do you, I’m happy to tell you that there are a lot of people who were making five figures from it before they transfer to a paid hosting.

Don’t be discouraged!


2. Start a YouTube channel


YouTube is the second biggest search engine after Google. This means that YouTube is the most visited search engine after Google, where people search for videos about anything and watch. Over one billion people visit YouTube daily and over 300 hours videos are added every minute.

You can take your chances with YouTube by posting quality videos and monetizing it later. Just like creating and growing a blog, getting results on YouTube also takes time and hard work.

All you need to do is to find what you’re passionate about and create videos on it. Maybe you like to do comedy, pranks, Lifehacks, gaming, football, tutorials, technology or singing. There are a lot of free video editing software out there that you can choose from. You can use the paid later if you can afford it. Shoot a video, edit it and post it.

You can learn how to create a YouTube channel online and it’s easy to create. You can also search on YouTube for a tutorial to create your own channel.


What you should do to grow your YouTube channel


1. Just like blogging, you need to do on-page SEO by adding a meta data to your YouTube channel. Like meta description and meta title. This is very important to YouTube search engine.

2. Do keywords research for your YouTube channel. This will help you to know a dead keyword. Without proper keywords research, you can expect not to see any results from your channel. Determine the monthly searches and the competition before pumping out videos on YouTube.

3. Share your videos to gain popularity. You need to have some certain subscribers and watched hours before you can start monetizing your YouTube channel.

Share your videos with your friends and make use of the power of social media to attract viewers to your videos. This will help you build trust with the YouTube search engine.

4. Make sure to always post quality videos. Viewers will leave if they can’t see clearly what your videos are all about. People want to watch very high quality videos. Some prefer the HD. This will make viewers to come back to your channel and watch your latest videos because they like your videos.


3. Start a freelancing job


Okay. This is the most popular investment-free job on the Internet. You don’t need to pay a dime to start making money online as a freelancer.

Do you have the skills that customers are looking for?

What can you do? Can you design a website? Can you code a game? Can you write for people? Can you translate? Can you proofread? Can you create a beautiful Logo? How well can you use Photoshop? There are a lot of customers looking for these services.

Just ask yourself what you are good at and you can start making money.

There are some freelancing websites that receive thousands of people looking to pay you  for your services. Just register and create a complete profile. Add your picture, use your real name and do not lie about your skills. If you’re only good at designing a website, don’t go on to add that you’re good at coding a game.

It is the same for Freelancing. Just like Blogging and creating videos on YouTube, you need trust to succeed as a freelancer. If people don’t trust you, they won’t give you a job.

Top freelancers make livings from this. I mean, all they do to support themselves and their families is to do a job for people online. They’re quite rich too. Maybe you didn’t know, there are a lot of top freelancers that make five figures every month.

Building trust takes time too. You need to deliver your work to your customers as soon as possible . You need to do the work as the employers have requested and you need to satisfy your employers to receive high ratings from them. This will boost your popularity and will make you a top freelancer.

If you’re just starting, don’t  charge ridiculously high price for your service. You need to start with small price and then later when you’re already a popular freelancer, you can charge your employers high price depending on the job.

Some of the freelancing websites are Fiverr, Freelancer, and Upwork.


4. Taking online surveys


Some websites let you take surveys for them and you’ll get paid.

Online surveys are sometimes also called market research jobs. In basic terms it is taking a survey online for payment. More and more people are signing up to these sites every day to earn a little extra money. A standard internet search will provide you with a whole list of companies that are looking for new members. The good thing about taking online surveys is that anyone can do it. You do not have to have any qualifications to join. All you will need is the ability to use a computer, Internet access, good English skills.

You will need to sign up to a few different companies in order to maximize your true online earning potential. After all, it is better to have too many invites than too few. Most people do online surveys in their spare moments. Doing this will not take a significant proportion of your day away from you. You can do as few or as many as you like.

You should note that there are some online survey scams so you should be careful not to fall victim.

This is just to make extra few bucks online.


5. Self-publish eBooks on Amazon


Do you love writing books? Then you can sell them on Amazon. Amazon is the biggest online market store in the world. It was initially created to sell Kindle books before it took a huge turn to become the biggest online market store.

You can write about anything and sell it on Amazon. What is it you know? How to make money online? Can you write an SEO book? How to make profit from affiliate marketing?

All these can make you money if you put enough time and effort into writing something worth reading. Do not rush yourself just to publish an eBook on Amazon. You need to edit, edit and edit. Writing a 5000-word eBook might take you weeks, even months.

Write your book and convert to an eBook that allows more flexibility, like being able to link to chapters from the table of the contents. Create a beautiful cover image featuring the book title and the author. You can create this yourself if you know how to or hire a freelancer to do this for you.

This will take time before you start making good money. Remember your book must be worth selling before you can make money from selling your books.




Making money online is not a get rich quick scheme as we have seen, especially if you’re starting with no investment. It takes time and effort to make good money from it.

Note 1. 

Be happy doing what you choose to do if you’ve decided to start. If you’re not happy and confident that one day you will start seeing good result, you will quit right before you start seeing results for what you’ve worked so hard for.

Note 2.

Be persistent in doing what you choose to do. If you keep doing it right over and over, you will see results and you’ll be amazed. Don’t quit midway to success.

Note 3.

Read and read and read. Read to learn about whichever you choose out of these methods. Fact is that there are experts that already made a fortune from doing these things and have talked about their experiences.
