It takes money to make money.
You’ve probably heard this saying many times, but it’s not true. You do not need money to make money, especially online. Many online job opportunities don’t require you to make any investment at all.
Most business owners understand the importance of an online presence. They know they need to publish a website and contribute to a blog multiple times a week. After working their business though, they can’t find the time to devote to their website. This is why they hire freelance writers to do it for them.
Freelance writers write for business owner’s blogs. They earn money for every blog published. Beginners make around $5 to $10 per blog, and experienced ones can be make as much as $100 or more per post.
You can find these opportunities by searching job sites, Craigslist, or reaching out to website owners to offer your writing services. You can also post ads in newspapers, magazines, and on other websites.
Game developers spend a lot of time designing games people will love to play. Since people’s likes and dislikes change, they have to stay on top of them. One way they do this is by allowing people to test their games before releasing them to the public.
Game testers simply play a game, provide feedback, and then get paid. Some games last longer than others, and those usually pay more than the shorter ones. Some game testers can make $10 per game, and others can make as much as $50.
One of the most popular websites to find job opportunities to test games is GameTesters.net. You can also find some companies on indeed.com that will hire you to test their games.
Social Media Management
Social media is hot right now. Almost everyone is on at least one social media network right now. Business owners know their consumers are on these networks, so they are following them to advertise their services and products. Much like writing for a blog, many business owners do not have the time to manage their social media.
Social media managers set up social media accounts for their clients. They post on their behalf, interact with followers, and increase following by reaching out to people online. The goals of social media managers are to make sure the business owner is represented in a positive way and increase online visibility.
You can find social media management opportunities in many places online. Search Craigslist and job boards for business owners and companies needing social media assistance. You can also post ads on Google, social media networks, and on websites having to do with Internet marketing.
Many other online jobs without investment exist, but these will get you started on making some money. Once you receive your first payment for your services, you’ll likely start searching for more opportunities, and the great thing about it is you will likely find them. Making a living online is possible, and it’s possible without having to pay out first.
