my question is , do you rank without doing guest post? or i need to invest money? then how do a start up blogger will survive?
You definitely need money to rank in the long term. What some people do to avoid investing too much when they’re just getting started is target very long tail keywords. Lots of them.

Guest posting works great, in 2 years I've built 800 RDs quality and without paying a single $.

The secret sauce is in outreach. If you outreach 100 prospects with a personalized pitch you get 2-3% link placement on an authority website.
Impressive, are you willing to share any secrets to your success?

Sure, search "brain dean guest posting" method. I follow this method and they hired a VA, taught the entire method, and he started building 10-20 links each month. His only job was to find prospects and email them.

It is possible, I have a couple of really niched down directory sites (that everyone says not works, works perfectly fine) in my language that ranks position 5-6 in Google with just 7-8 articles and 5-6 free links on them that brings in around $600 each every year per site, that I made some years ago for testing. Build a bunch of those types of sites and you could get a decent side income. I really don`t do anything on them nowadays other then updating the theme and plugins, and send an invoice once per year. Total time maybe 1-2 hours per year. If I would start marketing them to businesses in the niches, I would make a lot more, I know, I´m stupid lazy.

If you don't mind me asking, how are you monetizing those directory websites? with ads or another source of income?

Guest blogging as an SEO strategy is extremely effective. Not only does creating guest content on other sites help your SEO, it also exposes your content/brand to a new audience as well as providing back-links to your website.

Yes, it is possible with low competition keywords. But guest posts can help in gaining potential traffic and reach a new set of audience

It doesn't sound realistic at all if you don't write continuously new content. Probably feasible if you brand yourself. For my personal experience, hard to find free guest posts opportunities these days.
