Making Money On The Web Without A Website – How to Earn Money On The Internet for Free!

Updated on June 9, 2011

For whatever your reason, perhaps you have no interest in owning a website, don’t want to pay for website maintenance costs or simply aren’t sure how to create one. Either way, it is possible for you so start making money on the web with limited investments and no tech savvy knowledge required!

This article will cover the best ways to start making money on the web without a website!

How Much Do You Want to Earn Online?

Before you start making money on the web, it’s important to have realistic expectations about how much you can earn. There are plenty of scams out there that promise you’ll be earning $500 a day in no time (as long as you fork over $50 up first, before you even know what you’ll be doing!) Often times, these scam artists are telling the truth when they say they’re making $500 a day. They are because they find 10 people a day, just like you! What you’ll soon find out that it will be very difficult to make as much money as they claim or near impossible because of costs and restrictions that you simply shouldn’t have to worry about.

The ways that I’ll show to on how to make money online without a website will cost you either $0.00 or have very limited fees.

I cannot guarantee what you’ll learn as it will vary with how much effort and how much time you put into it. It is simply impossible to earn even $100 a day without doing barely any work. Everything takes effort!

Freelance Work

This bit of info right here is what a lot of the “Work at Home Mom” ads try to sell to you – a list of freelance websites where you can bid on projects to earn extra money. If you spend some time in google, you’ll soon find out that one of these free sites is called

Guru allows you to bid on projects (a lot of different types) that other companies or members need to get done. That’s where you come in! You bid on each project and let the other party know why you’re best suited for the task.

You can easily make $40 an hour on here, but of course you do need to have some experience and expertise in whatever the project may be. It can be anything from data entry to writing content to scanning receipts, etc.

The more projects you receive on this site, the more you’ll earn as your reputation will grow. You’ll have to be very aggressive and offer very competitive pricing to build up your references. After that, employers can add you to their favorites for repeat work!    

Selling Your Own Products

You’ve heard of eBay. Everyone has. That’s one place you can go to sell things around the house. But, what if you actually make a product that you want to sell? If so, is the place for you to be.

Etsy is an incredible online community of do-it-yourself handmade goodies! Everything that you can imagine, from jams to furniture to cosmetics to art to stationary to baby clothes can be bought and sold on Etsy. There is a small fee for each listing (I believe .20 cents, but it is refunded after three months if your item has not sold). There is also a small transaction fee. For only .20 cents a listing, it would be in your interest to list a few of your crafts or pieces of artwork and see how much you can get! The pricing on the website is very fair, and most times you can earn exactly what your handmade product is worth (unlike, eBay!)

Writing Articles Online

I started writing articles online about two months ago. I’ve written 100 (this article is actually my 100th!). I’ve had to spend lots of time doing research about using the right keywords and search engine strategies, but I haven’t spent a dime doing this research or writing my articles. I’ve earned around $210 so far, combined with Google Adsense and Amazon Affiliates, but my earnings are starting to really increase every month. My goal is $200 next month and $300 the next month. It’s some extra cash that I enjoy and more importantly, I enjoying writing articles on different things.

You can write about anything really, you just need to know how to optimize it for search engines so folks using Google can find it.

You can take the tour of HubPages here and sign up and start writing.

It’s free to do – all you have to do is write and research through what topics can earn you some money.! If you play your cards right (aka as research), you can start making money on the web by writing articles.

Selling Other’s Products

You can earn money by selling other companies products online. There are a few ways to do this. First, there are many free affiliate stores that you can receive a commission for each product sold. You “simply” market the store. It is already built and already contains hundreds of products. I wouldn’t recommend this unless you have phenomenal internet promotional skills or thousands of family members and friends who will buy items from you.

Next, you can market Amazon Affiliate products through writing articles. For most articles that I write online on HubPages, I post links to products that I think my readers might be interested in. So far, I’ve been selling about one product a day. Eventually, I’ll be making easily around $100 a month from Amazon.

Lastly, you can try out a site called ClickBank. I haven’t used this site yet, but a lot of people seem to earn a lot of money from it. There are links to hundreds of products (all sorts of categories). You promote these links through a blog, article or even Google AdWords and will earn a small commission for each sale.

      Good advice. I've been trying to focus more seriously on making money by writing, freelancing, and affiliate programs lately, and while I have yet to receive a single cheque from any affiliate program I've signed up with, I have to admit that my earnings this past month, when I've tried to be more serious about it, have outsripped my earnings of the previous three months. It's funny what a little effort can do for you, and half the time it's stuff I would have been doing anyway!

      I guess writing topics is like oil exploration....

      You just have to keep drilling at various places. If you hit a reservoir, oil will be all yours. That's my idea.

      And also Murphy Law is applicable on HubPages as well.

      You will get 80% of your traffic from 20% of your hubs and 20% of traffic from 80% of your hubs.

      Thanks. :) I'm a strong believer that the more you write and research, the more you'll know how to write profitable hubs. There definitely is a learning curve, but once you reach it - the sky's the limit!

      Just wanted to say congratulations on gettng to 100 hubs. I am also striving to get to that number. My earnings are not anywhere near yours but I hope to learn more about picking the correct keywords that will lead to more clicks.

      Continue with the great writing.

      I have been writing on HubPages for 6 months and so far earned $40.00 from AdSense and $4 from Amamzon. I think it must be that you need to build up enough of a presence along with good SEO to get enough targeted traffic to make money. Good Hub.

      Earning $200 plus in two months is really great . . . it's taken me two years to earn my first $ 106 with Google . . . there was a lot of learning I was doing and I was writing in quite competitive niches. And the money came really from several months of income since I didn't write for a while. I've not made anything here with Amazon just yet.
