And I’m telling you, YOU can totally get this whole thing nailed down, too. It’s all about knowing and applying the different steps in the process that I have personally done myself to get your business to take off and support all your needs and wants.
So pay close attention to my recommendations in this post on how to make big money online and turn this year into your year of the hustle that is your ticket to a genuine lifestyle design in years to come.
How to Make Money Online for Free
What?? I can make big money online for free?!
We did it, and we literally had zero money in our pocket when we started our business.
Backstory, my previous businesses tanked, had to give up our last house, lost $60,000, had to give up the clothing company I was building because of bad decisions on items I purchased…
So what did I do?
I did three different things - one after another - that helped me make money online without an investment.
And the coolest part about all of these is that you don’t even have to be a ninja digital marketer to get into these three pathways. You can have zero tech knowledge and still get on any of these paths to making money.
From here, it’s about having a clear understanding about the work you need to put in. You’re going to work weekends, you’re going to work nights, whatever it takes, it’s not completely free since time is money but it’s the closest thing to it as far as the dollar amount goes.
Commit yourself to the hustle, to choosing to work towards your goals.
Say no to mindless activities, say no to being places you don’t need to be, there’s power in saying no to what’s not going to benefit your life and now is when you need to prioritize.
This self control and commitment separates the rookies that just want to make quick fleeting money overnight and those who want to build a sustainable business for themselves.
You have to do the work. So where do you begin? Let’s look at the three ways you can earn money online for free going from zero revenue to money you can invest.
Gain Experience and Make Money Online for Free
First off, when you’re looking at making money online, there’s some skills you’re going to need to learn and this is all part of your side hustle that you work on during your off time from your J.O.B.
Start dipping your toes into earning money online by selling anything that isn’t bolted down.
Get acquainted with eBay, craigslist or any online marketplace you can sell on and start sorting through the junk.
Do you have antiques or collectables? Do you really need everything you have? Not only can you earn a few hundred dollars online, you can declutter at the same time. Nice.
If you don’t personally have anything you can sell, try working out a deal with someone in your family, a neighbor, or a friend so you can clear out the garage or attic and get those items listed, splitting the profits 50/50.
Not only can you make money online for free, earning you some extra cash, but you’ll get the experience of selling items online.
You learn market research, you learn how to take better pictures, copywriting (words that get people to buy) AND when you sell an item on ebay you just realized you can make money from a transaction online.
Flip Items and Collect Profits
Once you’ve sold a few things at no cost to you… You can scale this model by reinvesting what you made for free to buy more items you can sell.
This is flipping and is one of the most common ways people make money online.
If you’ve hustled up a bit of cash and want to reinvest it… Take a trip down the dollar store, a garage sale or a local thrift store. Look for things that you can flip on eBay and sell at a higher price.
Do a price comparison, if someone is selling something for cheap at a garage sell because they just want to get rid of their “junk” you can potentially flip these items and earn a decent profit.
Focus on items you’re familiar with.
Use the Ebay app to see exactly what the items you are looking at are selling for commonly on Ebay! (And remember, there are some ebay fees, so make sure you have GOOD margins!)
The goal isn’t to collect a bunch of stuff that might be valuable or will be later, stick to what you know. So if you know a lot about classic video games, that’s something you can keep an eye out for. Baseball cards, pop culture items, specialty items?
If you scan something at the dollar store that goes for $2.50 and it’s selling all day long on eBay for $12.50, Boom. Buy it and make profits out of that thing straight away once you sell it.
Keep flipping on the side and get some cash flow going.
There’s so many things considered junk that end up having a lot of value to them so go with what you know and make some money online by selling it for what it’s worth through the online market.
Make Money Online for Beginners With Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is a great way to get a business going with very little cost. All you need is the WordPress site and hosting which will cost you about $100 or less.
What I like about setting up an affiliate marketing website is number one, it’ll help you make money as an affiliate marketer, and number two, you’ll learn SEO, some skills in working with WordPress and a little bit of copywriting skills.
This is the beginning to making 6 figures a year online.
These are the basic skills you have to develop to make money online plus you’ll begin to earn money as an affiliate marketer.
Make Money Online For Free With Digital Marketing Arbitrage
It is the only theme I use on all of my websites, super clean and simple and it has an agency license, giving you the legal permission to use it on other people’s websites.
If something falls through the cracks or one of your VAs don’t show up, you want to make sure you yourself are able to get the job done.
Stick with one website theme and know it inside and out, get a freelancer online that knows Thrive and works for $5-$10 dollars an hour, bid your website project at $30-$45 an hour, super cheap for the U.S and you pocket the difference.
Go even cheaper and get a few wins under your belt when you are first starting, I did my first few for free!
Client Work Through Digital Marketing
Selling websites is just the tip of the iceberg…
You can do a ton from there!
Logo design, website builds, flyers, business cards, and more!
You concentrate on project management (making sure the stuff gets done) and handle the sales and service.
You basically become a well-paid quality control inspector.
You scale up another level and offer content marketing, social media marketing services, paid ad campaigns.
Once the website’s up and running, with all the pages in place, your client would want to make sure traffic is coming to their website right?
