  1. Earn Money From YouTube


Are you damn serious about making money online without investment? Then YouTube is one of the best place to do so. To be very specific YouTube is one of the best popular video sharing platform with billions of users around the globe. I believe by now you know what am saying. Millions of people have made millions of dollars from YouTube by uploading videos on YouTube.

Confused right?

This is the way YouTube works.

  • You create a video (actually you don't need a professional video or long video, but you have to make the video yourself)
  • Upload it on YouTube
  • Get 10000+ views (monetization requirement)
  • Monetize your channel and boom, you start earning from views on ads placed on your video(s) by YouTube. You can read more on how to create youtube channel and monetize a YouTube channel.

2. Online Freelancing Jobs


This is one of the best way of making money online,  you just get paid for doing what you can and love. That is to say that this type of job requires skills.

Still confused? I believe No!!!

How It Works

For example am a graphics designer I will display my works on my profile in the freelancing site, so when ever someone in search of graphics designer gets in contact with my work he may hire me for his or her logo design, after completing the task I will get paid for doing the job.

You think you can be scammed after doing the work  because it is  a pay after work stuff.


The method of transaction on freelancing like fiverr is escrow (where the admins or moderators serve as middlemen for the transaction)

Recommendation: Display and get hired for jobs you are experienced in the field and performing such job should take you a maximum of 6 hours

Note: Payment per job is $5-above (depending on the task) and don't give bad impressions to clients, thereby making them to cancel order,  any order cancelled is tagged in your profile, so avoid this.

Freelancing Site: Upworks, Fiverr, Freelancer etc.

Just imagine 30 persons purchased that particular eBook in one week. That will be
