    Hello there guys, I hope that you'all doing well.
    Last week, I heard about this forum from a blogger; while he was talking about it as a valuable source of information that can help finding your way to make money online. As you may notice, this is my very first post and I hope It won't be the last xD.. I need your help guys finding the best method to make my first 1$ on the internet. What do you suggest for a beginner who has nothing to invest except his time and effort?

    Presume you mean financial investment ?

    Yes you can, but it's going to be more difficult than being able to scrape together say $50 or $100 to start out.

    Buy hosting, get a free domain and go from there.

    IF you have zero start up money, go to Hire A Freelancer on here and pick up some jobs and earn some seed money that way.

    You can get emails free, free domains, free hosting and create social media for free. Now u have a free online presence to promote anything. Dont say you can't until you try.

    Find someone who has a site and help promote it for a % of sale.
    Resell services from here on another platform
    Promote affiliate links.

    You could try dropshipping with using a 14-day Shopify trial and using forums to promote your page. It'd be a very stressful hustle for sure and may not yield the results you'd like though. You should make money first.

    It's possible but it will take long!!

    For serious money you need to invest.

    Sure, you can get a free domain, free hosting but they SUCK!! Have limitations and is you were directed to such a shitty free (sub) domain would you buy or fill out something?

    Worst advice ever!! For dropshipping you need money to invest and I am not talking a couple dollars.

    it's possible. my journey started with a $0 budget.
    free domains...free hosting...free traffic sources...they're all still around.
    join cpa networks and find offers you think will perform well. then promote them on social media.
    check out offervault.com and affpaying.com to find networks and offers.
    most importantly read threads bhw. not many ppl will bother to spoon feed you. we see "how do i make money" threads daily. this forum is dedicated to doing it. just read!

    Depends on what consider your an investment. In my opinion, you have to invest always something in order to achieve another thing. For example, you can make money without invest money, but you will need to invest in knowledge (maybe?).

    For example, right now I have just posted a new thread where I was asking if BHW community wants to hear about my freelancer journey (It is here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/would-you-like-to-hear-about-a-freelancing-journey.943817). Well, in that journey, I started with an initial investment of $0. But I invested in knowledge since I had to learn a lot before to be able to offer my freelancing services.

    And the same happens with everything. Yes, you can earn money with things like @uncutu say (yes, I am following that journey ;)) but you will need to learn how to do these things. But don't feel disappointed about that thing, as a lot of people say, enjoy the way!

    Before investing on blogging, you can first start out as an online freelancer and earn your initial capital for a decent blog and its webhost and domain name. While working as a freelancer, you can study or do research on the method that you have chosen for your investment. That way, when you have enough money, you also have enough knowledge to start out with your plan. Still better than finding your way though the dark with no money.

    Hello,
    Niche websites are a good way to start, and you can do it for free! Find a niche and create a blog using blogger and run ads on it. Adsense ads pay best, but there are others such as Chitika! You can then advertise your blog on sites like Classifiedsforfree, Craigslist and others for exposure! This method will not make you rich, but it will make you some money!

    Keep away from free hosting. I had nobody to tell me that when i was starting out.

    Free hosting and cheap hosting packages have something in common: they are shared!

    What usually happens is that malicious code roams on those free hosting sites, and since you share IP with them, your site will be flagged in every browser and every antivirus (coz of their blacklists) as potential harmful site(red warning screen forbidding visitor to enter).
    Even when your site is clean, fair and square, you will suffer as collateral.

    Other than that, it is absolutely possible to earn online without any startup money, problem is that it requires time, intelligence, knowledge and patience. People usually lack something. Be aware of your shortcomings.

    I was bored one day so I created a free domain with free hosting, built
    the site. I showed a member of the forum and they liked my products I had in it. He offerd to build a new site and jv with me. I have premium hosting so we put it up on my server. Domain was$1.18 logo $5 social accounts free.

    You never know what can happen until you try. 1st sale 2 weeks later.

    Use the search and you can find cheap hosting for $12 a year. I don't use it but others do.

    Hi, you can monetize with adsense on niche websites. You can create a blog for free, have some good quality content in it. Then bring on some traffic on websites like CL..
