The value of being able to make money online can’t be understated. Because it allows you to add to your income from the comfort of your own home, and it opens up opportunities that you may not have access to otherwise.
However, sometimes finding websites where you can earn money… presents a challenge. And many of them require some type of investment, which may be something you’re not comfortable with or able to do.
So today, in order to help everyone unlock the opportunity of making money online, we’ve compiled a list of five of the best money earning websites without investment!
YouTube is at the top of this list, because the earning potential on this site is unlimited. All you have to do is start a channel and begin posting videos, then after you achieve certain goals (like subscriber count and watch time) you can apply to be a YouTube partner.
At that point, you get paid for every view on your video. And the money can really add up over time, especially depending on how much you can grow your channel.
Fiverr is a freelancing platform where you can post “gigs” to advertise your services in a variety of industries. Anything from writing to graphic design to virtual assistant jobs can be posted, and you do the work in exchange for a fee. Most people start out by selling their services for $5.
But eventually, you could build a wide array of clients and start to charge more for your services.
If you enjoy photography, then Shutterstock is the perfect website for you to monetize that hobby. You can upload pictures and videos (that you took) to the site, and if they sell then you receive compensation.
These photos can even be taken with your phone, if you don’t have enough money for a camera yet. They just have to be of good quality, and it helps if they’re aesthetically pleasing.
4. User Testing
User Testing is a website that doesn’t require you to have a specific skill. Instead, all you have to do is test the websites or apps that the site gives you and then rate your experience. It’s really simple, and you only have to pass a simple test in order to get started.
They pay about $10 per site that you test, and you can collect your money through PayPal.
Swagbucks is a website/app where you can complete simple tasks in exchange for their unique currency, called “swagbucks”. Usually these tasks are simply surveys, but you may also be asked to watch videos or play certain games.
Then, once you collect enough swagbucks on your profile, you can exchange them for either money… or gift cards that you can spend on popular shopping sites.
