Blogging has become one of the most significant ways to make money all over the world. This method works in every country. There are many prominent bloggers like Brian Dean, Neil Patel, etc… who are earning thousands of dollars monthly with blogging.

How does it work?

First, you must select a niche on which you can write. After choosing the niche create a blog and start writing on it. Do SEO of your blog and try to rank it in Google. The whole process takes six months to a year minimum to start making money from your blog. When your blog gets traffic, then you can earn through Google AdSense, Affiliate Marketing, etc.

Another option is to have someone make your blog for you.)

2. YouTube

Another massive platform to make money online without investment is YouTube. First, you have to select a niche and create a channel.

It works almost like blogging, but in this, you must add videos instead of articles. Make sure you add terrific videos which go viral and try to make your channel popular. The turnaround time is also 6 months to 1 Year.

3. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is also a top-rated source of earning money online. There are many big companies which allow affiliate marketing like Amazon, eBay, HostGator, etc.

You just have to signup with your affiliate account. After that, you need to promote their products and get a commission on each sale which you make through your affiliate link. This is very easy and quick way of earning money.

Here is a guide to Affiliate Marketing for Beginners.

4. PTC Sites

Through Pay-to-Click sites, you can also make money. There are many famous sites like Clixsense, Neobux, etc… which pay you for viewing ads. But the price you will get is very low. So, to be successful, you must build referrals to earn their commission also. Without referrals, it will be difficult to win a good amount of income.

One thing you must keep in mind, getting referrals is not essential. The most important part is keeping the referrals active. You can also buy referrals but make sure that they are active.

5. Google AdSense

AdSense is a Google advertising program, and it pays for each click. This is so far the best pay per click program available. I know many people who are earning more than $10,000 a month just with Google AdSense.

To earn money from it, you need a blog or YouTube channel. Not only this you also need tons of traffic. The more traffic, the more you earn.

6. Media Ads

This is like AdSense, but the CPC (cost per click) rate is lower. It is my 2nd choice after Google AdSense. If you are unable to get an AdSense account, then use media ads. They are easy to approve and work well.

Here is a list of Adsense alternatives.

7. Freelancing Jobs

Freelancing as a career is relatively new in the online world. And the best part is you work within your own rules. There are many sites available which are offering freelancing jobs, you can join them and earn good amount of money.

Here are two websites you can use for finding freelance jobs (including writing).

8. Article Writing Jobs

There are many companies or blog owners who need article writers for their websites or blogs. If you have excellent writing skills and your English is good, you can contact them and show them your sample work. If they like your work, they will hire you and pay you good money for articles.

You can slowly build relations with more site owners and increase your work. You can also choose article writing as your full-time job. You can quickly earn more than $1,000 a month just by writing articles.

9. SEO Services

If you are an SEO expert, you will not die due to money. You can sell services like,

  • On-Page SEO
  • Off-Page SEO (Link Building, Content marketing, )

There are many sites where you find people who want to buy such services, for example:

  • Fiverr
  • SEO Clerks

If you’re going to work long-term on these sites, you must ensure the quality of work and earn the trust of customers. If you succeed, no one can stop you from making thousands of Dollars a month.

10. Data Entry Jobs

This method has been prevalent for last few years, but it still works. In this job, you have to type CAPTCHAS. According to an estimate, one earns $4 to $5 for each 1000 CAPTCHA typing.

There is just one problem in this, there are many fake companies which are offering this, but they do not pay. That is why it is recommended that you go for a paid option as the risk is minimum, on the other hand, most of the free options are fake.

Final Words!

There are hundreds of ways to make money online with or without investment, but the methods mentioned above are reliable and trusted. If you do hard work for some time, you will earn for sure, and it will increase day by day.

The problem with online earning is that it takes time, and most of the people quit at the beginning. So, if you want to be successful in the field of internet earning you must keep working for some time without thinking of money.

Once you earn some initial money, you can always scale up with blogging. Check out my free 5 day blogging and traffic primer course.
