There are many different ways to make money online. There are so many in fact that there are nearly as many ways to make money with the internet as there are people on the internet. One of the things that most people want to know is if they can really make money online for free, meaning that they do not have to spend a huge amount of money out of their own pocket to get started.
So, to answer this question quickly, I am going to say that you pretty much can not make money online for free. Let me clarify, you can can make money without paying a single cent out of pocket, but it won't be a lot and you are going to have to work a lot for it to add up. And, the fact of the matter, is that it doesn't make sense to try to make money for free when you can work a lot smarter buy spending a few dollars.
For instance, let's look at a couple of ways that you can make money without paying anything to anybody. The first is by writing content for a site owned by somebody else. Unless you have a lot of credentials in a particularly lucrative field, nobody is going to pay you very much for your words. You can maybe demand $10 or $20 for 500 words, but you'll probably be lucky to get that. More likely you will write for free and will earn a percentage of the revenue your content generates.
This model ensures that you will only receive a percentage of the total value of your work. For instance, if you write an article for a site that generates $100 you might get $60 of that. Typically, this is especially true if you do not know what you are doing, any content you write is going to make less than a penny per visit. So, you are going to have to draw in a lot of visitors to make your efforts worthwhile.
It is much smarter to allocate a certain amount of money to start up costs and begin to treat your online endeavors as a business. What that means is that you need to own your own websites. You may think that this is a particularly difficult thing to do, but with current software, you can learn everything you need to know to start and manage a blog in under an hour.
Then you will be in a position to earn all the revenue that your content generates, which is a much better situation to be in, I can assure you.
