How To Make Money With Free Websites*
If your dream is to own a website, and, financially, you are not in a position to do so yet, there are free ways you can explore to make money online without ownership of a website. After you've earned enough money off of the free sites, you'll be in a position to actualize your dream: ownership of your website.
Being a member of a free Content-Publishing Platform offers you not only the opportunity to further your writing career, but also, when teamed up with your website (your own platform), the possibility to increase exposure to your content, hence the chance to promote Yourself, Inc. As a bonus, you get to sharpen your content-producing and publishing, web-hosting and building skills in the meantime, until you are ready to venture out on your own.
Digital Content-Publishing Platforms are websites that allow you to publish your content for free.
Without further ado, here is a list of few free Content-Publishing Platforms you can join to start earning money online:

How Does The Process Work?
Here is how the process works: you produce quality content (text, images, sounds & videos), which you publish on the free Content-Publishing Platforms. In exchange for having done the heavy intellectual lifting of producing engaging content, the platforms share their advertising revenues with you, provided certain stipulated conditions are met.
Do not expect to be rich overnight; for this is not a get-rich-quick scheme, but the laying down of a solid foundation upon which you can build a passive income-earning empire for years to come, if you persevere.
If you expect to make money in your sleep, without any effort on your part, keep dreaming. However, if you want to earn money while sleeping, do the dirty work of producing quality content first. While there is no guarantee that you are going to make a killing, but if X, Y, and Z engage in the same legit activity and earn money as a result, chances are if you do too, you should expect the same outcome and earn money as well. It's science, not philosophy.
In addition to the aforementioned content-publishing platforms, there are other revenue-sharing websites worth exploring, as alternatives, in case things don't work out for you at the foregoing sites:
There is an inordinate amount of revenue-sharing sites that you can leverage to put money in your pocket, but since content-creation and production is a time-consuming process, just stick to a few good ones to achieve your goal.
While we cannot vouch for all foregoing platforms- for not having dealt with them all, we can certainly, nevertheless, attest to the fact that HubPages has proven itself to be, so far, a relatively sure thing, a reliable money-making machine.
What To Write About?
There is no shortage of topics to write about. Do you love theater, movies, dating, shopping, fashion, literature, music, finance, electronics, politic, sports, etc.? Those are all subjects you can write about passionately and make money off of them as well.

If you are crafty, creative, able to design and manufacture jewelries, clothes, artworks, unique wares, etc., and need an e-vitrine to display and sell the products of your wild imagination, there are marketplaces that will accommodate your needs for either a nominal listing fee and/or transaction fee. Those outlets are, to name just a few:
There is a whole host of marketplaces where you can showcase and sell your products, but since managing a variety of sales outlets simultaneously can be likened to juggling too many balls in the air at the same time, confine your selling activities to just a few good marketplaces.
Other Online MarketPlaces
If your home is cluttered with things (good stuffs) you've accumulated over the years, and you have no use for them, it's maybe time to clean house and earn some money as well. Since it's been said, that one man's junk may be another man's treasure, you'll do your buyers a favor by getting rid of the "junk" (your buyers' treasure), and yourself a favor too by pocketing the proceed of the sale. How about that for killing (saving) two (2) birds with one stone? Here are a few other online marketplaces:
Again, do not encumber yourself with a bunch of marketplaces, just limit your outlets to a few good ones.
Affiliate Marketing is the promotion and sale of company's product(s) in exchange for a commission, provided certain conditions are met. It's a Cost Per Action (CPA) marketing method: you make money only if clients buy from your links.
Most companies, however, allow you to embed their affiliates links in sites you don't own, provided they (websites) are not sleazy; because no companies want to associate their positive images with disreputable websites.
If you are interested in affiliate marketing, checkout the following affiliate marketing networks:
