Retirement MoneyThere are lots of ways to make money online. I should know that because I run a blog where I constantly research and publish posts about different ways of making money from home. But most of these methods require you to spend some money whether its $10 for a domain, $1000 for a SEO campaign or what have you.

But if you are a beginner, you may not have even an extra $10 to pay for a domain. Or if you are like me when I was just starting out, you may want to first see some results before spending any money. Thankfully, there are a few good ways you can earn some extra cash without spending a single dollar. Here are 4 such methods:

1- Sell magazine subscription to make money

By using a website named AcclaimSubscriptions, an affiliate program, you can get commission by persuading consumers to subscribe to a variety of magazines they have on offer.

How would you react on learning that the number of topics of different magazines they offer exceeds 200,000! Anybody would find it hard not to find a topic of his interest. So, almost anybody is a good prospect for you. They provide free registration and give you a personal referral link. As and when anybody clicks on that link and subscribes to one or more of those magazines, you earn a commission.

You may incorporate the link on your blog, email, website or any place of your choice. You could even plant it on any of your social networking pages like Facebook, Myspace and Twitter etc.

2- Answer questions and get paid

Here’s an opportunity to get paid for your experience and knowledge by answering simple questions on the website named JustAnswer. You register to become a member. In the beginning, on providing

answer to a question, you are paid 25 percent of the amount that the person asking the question is prepared to pay.

After some time when you gain experience and have proven yourself, your commission is raised to fifty percent. You get paid through PayPal as soon as your earning reaches $20.

3- Sell T-shirts with your design and make money

CafePress and Zazzle provide you the facility to create your own designs for T-shirts and sell those through their websites. These websites have very easy drag and drop interfaces wherein you can transfer any picture or written material to a T-shirt.

You may develop your personalized design, using your photos and text or even utilize their quick design generator for creating designs. You may sell T-shirts with your designs through their website or you may opt to have your own online store to sell your stuff and make money.

4-Earn money doing just about anything

How would you like getting paid $5 for wearing somebody else’s shirt and getting photographed! Fiverr is the website where visitors can buy or sell any type of service by paying just $5. It’s sheer fun that you make money for doing some of the most unimaginable things for others.

You may be required to write or sing a song and get paid. Somebody may need travel tips to a city you might have already visited and known. Perhaps, you could design a webpage for someone or telling someone how to operate/repair a particular device. The possibilities are endless!

Lets be honest here, just because these methods don’t require any financial investments, it doesn’t mean there is no investment at all required. You still have to invest time and effort if you want to see results. That’s true with any money making method, whether online or offline.

Also, lets keep in mind that non of these methods are going to help you get rich. In fact, most people won’t even be able to make enough to call it a substantial income. Nonetheless, these 4 methods are great ways to earn money for those who don’t want to spend money to make it.

    Its possible to make money using subdomain free hosting options for an individual who would like to create a google adsense site. One doesnt even need to stress about content becuase most sites offer private label articles one can use to fill the site and even create a blog to attract visitors who’ll click on the links hopefully.

    Wow…. 200,000 different magazines that is allot. I think I will have to check into that idea. I am interested to see all the different magazine topics that are available. Fever is another site that is going to be on my list to check out. Services for $5 every little bit adds up :) Thank you for this article, making money online is not easy, but it can be done with hard work and determination.

  35. As an Online Expert Internet Marketer, I have been asked several times how to make money without spending a dime. Now, to me me, it doesn’t really make sense. Let me explain.

    The problem no 1 when you are IM Online Beginner: Information overload. Don’t you agree? It can only need to more questions, confusion and obviously, at 99% ot the time, Quit!

    The problem no 2 is that even if people got dedication, drive they do not have the appropriate education or they are not technical person.

    Now, let me ask you this: when are building a business, do you feel logical not to invest (I’m not talking about thousand of dollars :) ) and not having someone, a teacher or a guide who already got the knowledge. Wouldn’t be easier? Just a small reflexion here as you might do some money with free methods but it will take so much time and you’ll ending up falling into ever online traps, mistakes over and over…and you know what they said: “Time is money”.

    Take care!

  38. satrap your ideas are cool for newbies but i wasted my much time wandring around. Only blogging is the best source for making some money but some if you are not expert and freelancer is also best if you have any skill but now there is so much spam now. In games you can just earn from secondlife that is really really cool and best game just like our real world. You can do jobs there
