We bring you some tips on how to make some money online with almost zero capital.
1. Creating content for people
We all have something we are good at and enjoy. Someone loves to bake, play sports, draw or paint. We all have a hobby and a talent that we can share with the world. So why shouldn’t we make some money from our leisure activities too. You just have to have a little faith in yourself and start promoting your talent and with hard work and a bit of luck you can make some extra money.
There are several platforms where you can publish your content and monetize it over time, such as Youtube, OnlyFans, Patreon or Twitch. Recently, OnlyFans has become a phenomenon on the Internet and has become a popular platform all over the world, and this “fame” can be used to one’s advantage as there is a large fan base. On the Internet there are also various portals that promote your profile and bring you new subscribers, like this website for example. Although a lot of people have a bad opinion about this platform, as it is more about half-naked models, you can also find a lot of smart artists on this platform, who promote their work in this way.
2. Testing websites and applications from home
Testing apps or websites is a great way to make some extra money from home. You get paid for your thoughts and opinions on how well certain websites and apps work. This is a great and easy way to earn extra money. Everyone must have ever come to a website and the filters didn’t work, search didn’t work, the website wasn’t mobile responsive etc. This way of earning money is easy and at the same time by doing so you help the website or app in question to make up for the shortcomings.
3. Fill in the questionnaires
Another, and probably the most well-known, way to earn some extra money is by filling out questionnaires and doing surveys. This is not a way of earning money that you can quit your job and just fill out surveys, but you can earn some extra money by doing it. However, sometimes with this kind of earning it happens that you don’t get real money, but only different gift vouchers to different shops, e-shops and so on, so it is important to find such a portal that pays real money.
4. Freelance work
There are many different types of freelance work available online. You can find opportunities to write, program, design, market, do data entry, or work as a virtual assistant. There is likely something that you can do to make extra money on these websites. If you have a special talent or skill, you can use it to your advantage to make some extra cash. You just need to be willing to put in the time and effort to find the right opportunity for you. With so many different options available, there is sure to be something that fits your needs and interests. You just need to discover your inner talent and monetize it, it’s up to you when and what you start with.
5. Be a ghostwriter
The work of a ghostwriter is closely related to the previous point about freelancing. This is also freelance work, but not on your own behalf. A ghostwriter is someone, who writes content for another person, who will take credit for the work. A ghostwriter usually works from home and doesn’t need much in terms of investment – just a laptop and an internet connection. Ghostwriting is often combined with copywriting, as both services have similar specifics. A copywriter, on the other hand, is someone, who creates content for someone else to use, but doesn’t necessarily get credit for it.
Like a ghostwriter, a copywriter also usually works from home and needs minimal investment – just a laptop and Internet connection. Despite the similarities between the two professions, however, they are quite different. This is a great opportunity for someone, who likes to write but also wants to remain anonymous. Sometimes the services of a ghostwriter are also used to write different descriptions, for example like BIO on social networks or Tinder Bio for different people, who are not so creative.
6. Start blogging
Starting your own blog and starting to write is also a good idea to make some extra money. However, this is a rather difficult process and you won’t make a lot of money at the beginning. At first you need to build up a base of readers, who will come to your blog. Later on when you have a serious readership, you can sell the articles on your blog to different companies and they will promote their services and you will get money for it. Furthermore, you will also be able to add banners to your site and you will receive money for them, when they are displayed to the readers.

7. Teach someone else
Teaching someone else is also a great way to earn some extra money. Can you speak a world language or cook perfectly? So that’s great! You can pass on this know-how to someone else and get paid for it. And being a teacher, besides the extra money, will also give you the good feeling of having taught someone something and made them a better person. There are lots of sites on the Internet that connect people, who want to learn something with people, who will teach them that skill. So you just need to find something that you can teach other people and find a site that will let you do that.
There are plenty of other ways in the world to earn some extra money, but these are some of the most popular ones and you don’t have to have a lot of capital to start with. However, the most important thing is to find something that you enjoy doing and you get paid for it, because then the work will be fun for you and not an ordeal.
