    Because most of the techniques I see, you have to buy something.

    No, you can't unless you're a famous personality with the media flocking you in and out everyday. It means that you're going to reach out to the market and for that you need to have money.

    Sure there is -- just depends what you want to invest. You can invest money or time. If you have skills and no money, you can build something slowly. If you have money you can hire/buy stuff done and do it quicker. but everything costs, just depends if you pay in time or in money!

    There are many methods which you can start without any investment. For example you can create social media accounts free and grow those manually or you can setup a blog into free hosting if that's what you prefer.

    Don't look those $1000 per day methods as most of those requires some investments and lots of experience.

    Do you have a pair of shoes? If so then consider getting a Job, McDonalds is always looking for quality people such as yourself.
    Or try Fiverr/Freelancing, or start a Twitter/Facebook/Pinterest/Instagram account or try any of the other methods that you can start without a dollar to your name.

    Sure there are ways to make money with no money upfront, it requires your soul, your youth, and everything you are. Once you get money, you use it correctly to save your soul, life, whatever else it took from you to outsource the work.

    You can spam, let the trick of money come in quickly, have it die off like EVERYONE else who spams, or you could build quality with money and time. A part time job could fund your online investment strategy, but you need to learn the basics first. Something like Amazon took private money and a lot of lying and shady deals to create. The end result is Amazon, but it was not an overnight thing. You need to learn the very basics of psychology in order to create a successful something.

    I built a six-figure side business, as well as several highly-operable passive income streams, starting from absolutely nothing just a few years ago. It's not tough, you just need the ability to learn fast, adapt to changes in the market, and use creative abilities to create things and take calculated risks.

    Affiliate programs + social medias, but it will take some time to build the social medias accounts

    As there is nothing for free in life, you always have to "invest" to get something in return.
    That investment can be money, time, skills or both etc.
    What is important in the end, is the payout for your "investment", is it worth it ?!

    If you have only time to invest (and no possibility or not willing to invest money), which seems to be the reason for your question, the answer is yes.
    You can earn startup cash without investing money, some methods are already mentioned and a lot more you will find throughout this forum.
    However to achieve the goal of making a living out of your earnings, you will need a steady, longtime stream of income, the richer the country, the more you will need.
    That will hardly be achieved by only investing time. It is a mixture of money, time and skills that will eventually result in your financial wealth.

    Here are just a few examples of how you can make a quick buck to earn your startup cash:
    sell items you own and do not use anymore on places like ebay, amazon, etsy, classified ads
    sell your skills online on sites like fiverr, seoclerks, elance, odesk etc. (writing, translation, proofreading, language teaching are classics alomst anybody can offer)
    offer your time / skills to locals (jobs like cleaners, moving helpers, lawn mower, waiters, bartenders, transportation are classics)
    offer your online skills to locals (research, data mining, translation, coding, testing, graphic design, writing etc.)
    offer your knowledge about a topic as a freelance consultant online or to locals
    create / sell digital stuff like ebooks, pictures, graphics, code snippets etc. (envato marketplace etc.)

    As soon as you got enough startup cash, you can take the next step and add money to your "investment" and look for
    arbitrage (ebay /amazon etc.) or wholesale opportunities.
    Always keep an eye on your cash flow and donĀ“t spend your hard earned cash on stupid things in the beginning.

    Cheers
