5 Unique ways to make money online without any major investment

If you search over the internet for online money making ideas you will find thousands of people are claiming to make millions of dollar in a year. But do you know most of them are either fake or driving you to some fraud scheme where you will lose your hard earned money? There are no shortcuts if you want to make some serious money through online sources. This is true that you can make full-time income through online sources but that requires lots of hard work and dedication. The marketer who are claiming to buy this course and you will become a millionaire overnight is a decisive technique for promoting sales and generating leads for their products.  In fact, most of their testimonials are also fake which you can’t validate.

And I have also found many fake investment plans where they will ask you to triple your investment in a certain number of days. I invested in such a fraud company a year ago and within a couple of months, all details of that company got wiped out from social media and other online platforms. I lost almost 5 grand in this after that I did a lot of research and found some genuine sources to make online income. And these are personally tested so you won’t face any problem. But make sure you go only for that specific source in which you are comfortable and has the potential to make a substantial amount.

Online income sources which do not require major capital or investment

1. Blogging

This is one of the best sources to make online income if you are good at writing. If you can curate interesting content which engages people and drives a good number of traffic than this could be the area for your online courier. And you can start this at a minimum cost of $50 which I don’t even count as capital when you are planning an online business. The other major requirement for this is that you need to have a basic knowledge of SEO (search engine optimization). Always remember if you are content is too good then you don’t need to depend on SEO but if you don’t then you have to optimize your blog in order to find the content buy the people.

For investment, you need a domain name which you can buy for under $1 and a hosting company which is also somewhere between $20 to $30 apart from this rest you can manage by yourself.

2. Surveys and Sweepstakes

Surveys and sweepstakes are also again the best sources of additional income. There are lots of survey sites which provide tasks on daily basis and in exchange for that you earn points which you can convert into a discount coupon or cash depending upon the site terms and policies. There are two types of surveys one which is based on winning and other where you earn the points. The winning based survey has a low chance of winning but still, they are quite popular due to their high rewards. Such sweepstakes are like mykfcexperience and walgreenslistens which provide a cash prize to their winners.

3. Online tuition

Now you must be thinking that you need to have some sort of high skills in maths and science but here we are talking about tuition related to basic skills such as languages, guitar classes, dance classes or any other basic skill which you have. You can provide live classes or you can sell your videos which you can record in your free time. Recently I bought a course in guitar playing and its working fine so this could also be a good income source for anyone who is seeking to make a career online.

4. Data Entry work

Data entry work is usually for those who are good at typing but it does not need any major investment to start your career. Usually, we all have a computer and internet that is the only requirement for this task and there are many companies who publish their data entry jobs on task bases. First, they will provide you some task for testing and if you complete it with their specified parameters they will offer their bulk project with the agreement. However, I found a little tough because I am not really good at typing but this could be best for those who are good at typing and has a high accuracy.

5. Content Writer

Not only blogging but if you are good at writing you can do this on behalf of someone. A good writer can make anywhere between $50 to $100 for a single article but reaching on that level required a good and unique content which has the potential to engage the audience. Otherwise, there is a content writer who is charging $5 per post which might not help you with a full-time income. So you can refer the articles of those who are charging more than $100 per article where they are not writing more than 1000 words. And this considers a pretty well income because you can easily write one article per day. So if you work 22 days you can make $2200 per month.


Never get in a trap of million-dollar businesses most of the time they want to sell their products and for that, they exaggerate their results. They falsely implicate people to generate their sales lead which eventually makes you lose your hard earned money. Always try those earning platforms where you can make money with your own skills or you can make set up with the minimum capital which you can afford to lose. However, there are many online earning sources where you don’t even need capital as a content writer and online tuition these are completely skill based earning and also has a huge potential.
