Make Money Online Without Any Out-of-Pocket Expenses

Making money has never been easy but with the internet, the possibilities of earning without financial capital, a college degree, or even without knowledge on website design and publishing is endless.

Some people make money online by providing services to various clients. Most work as blogger, website developer, product reviewer, website designer, content writer and much more.

If you do not have the passion for website design, if you think you do not have the necessary skills to work as service provider online, or if you are not willing to bring some money from your pocket to start your own online business, use the following three steps in order to make money without any out-of-pocket expenses:

Step 1: Niche and Keyword Research

You must do niche / keyword research for your own website or for other people. Either way, you will need keyword research tools to do this.

There are many keyword research tools available online; but some may require you to pay a certain amount for membership. As we do not want you laying out some cash to start making money online, I suggest you look for free keyword research tool; one of which is Keyword Tool by Google.

If you do not want to use Google’s Keyword Tool, you can sign up for 14-day free trial of Wordtracker. Once you have chosen the program to use, you can start searching for keywords online.

But wait, have you thought on what niche to search about? Google trends and the most profitable products list on ebay will help you find hot niches to get you started.

If for example, you decided on ladies’ shoes niche market. Use a Keyword Tool to find out all words associated with ladies’ shoes…

  • from short description to detailed descriptions
  • from famous designers to upcoming designers
  • from the vintage to the new styles

All the keywords that you will be able to find will help you in your niche marketing efforts at step 3.

Step 2: Choosing Affiliate Network

As you now have decided on profitable niche and have researched on related keywords, it is now time to choose an affiliate network.

How do you choose which one to participate in? Of course, choose products and services that are related to your niche (there are many affiliate programs available online).

Partner with an affiliate program that has a good reputation in terms of paying its partner-affiliate as well as in providing marketing services to clients. Choose an affiliate network with diverse products and services (this is to increases your chances of making sales).

The more products and services you can advertise, the more you will be earning. Also, it is best to sign up with an affiliate network that provides various earning opportunities from banner ads to pay per click to rewards program.

The key here is to choose the one that matches your niche products and provides you more opportunities of earning. There are affiliates programs that provide free software that will help you optimize your content and improve your search engine index rating. See if any of such affiliate programs is suited for your website.

Step 3: Marketing with Blogging, Forums, Social Media, Etc.

Of course, one easy way of making money online is internet marketing. There are companies that hire bloggers to promote their products and services by posting comments and product reviews on different websites.

If you have loads of ideas and can write articles, you can create an account with article hosting websites.  Squidoo lets you create your own website. You provide the content and they provide web-hosting services.

Then, you can start building your lens or your website for free. The website has a Lens Wizard that will help you create your own website in a few minutes. When you make a lens, you can recommend a product from affiliate partners of Squidoo.

You can also write something that promotes one of the hundred of products and services provided by commerce partners of Squidoo. You earn money through such recommendation as well as on the ads placed by Squidoo on your website.

The steps are quite similar in other websites that provides free article hosting. You are given a cut on the advertisement revenues generated through your web-pages.

Another great way to promote a service or product is by posting a link on discussion forums. The affiliate network will be able to track down clicks that originated from your forum posts and you will be credited payment for it.

    Niche websites and blogs have been hit quite a bit by Google’s changes, but I think that if you still research keywords correctly and create excellent content, you can still make a lot of residual money with affiliate programs, information products and even Adsense. You really give good tips on your blog. I’ve found Squidoo to be a good addition to a website platform.
