You no longer need money to make money, if you want to start a business.

Here are 5 businesses you can start for free.

1. Merch-on-Demand

One of the best businesses you can start these days leverages print-on-demand merch.

Merch is used by YouTubers, influencers, gamers, and other to make their own hoodies, t-shirts, coffee mugs, phone cases, etc. to sell online.

If you use sites like Redbubble or Teespring, they will print the item once it is purchased and ship it to the customers.

This way, you don't have to deal with manufacturers or sell stuff out of your house. On top of that, you don't have to invest any money in merch orders before you've even sold anything.

Here are some business ideas involving this:

2. Marketing Services

Marketing services can cover so many different things and they usually attract higher paying customers (because they're companies).

Another great thing about marketing services is the fact that you can go broad or small niche.

For instance, you could specialize in marketing for:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Twitter
  • Blogs
  • Local businesses
  • YouTube channels

There are so many options!

And, on top of that, you can learn how to do marketing yourself without needing a degree.

There are countless tutorials and online courses you can take to learn marketing skills.

When it comes to selling your services for free, you can use freelance sites like UpWork or Fiverr to get started.

3. Graphic Design Services

Another type of service you can get paid for without investment is graphic design.

Even if you're not artistically talented, you can use a combination of free online tools like LunaPic, Clipping Magic, and Canva to perform all kinds of graphic design services.

You don't need Photoshop or any other expensive software until you get into some more advanced stuff later on.

Fiverr is a great place to sell these services for free.

Here's an example of an easy Fiverr graphic design business you could do:

4. Video Game Coaching

If you're a gamer, you can actually get paid to just coach people on how to be good at certain video games.

It's just like if you were a coach of any other sport.

You could sell this service by creating a freelance profile on one of the sites I mentioned above, or you could apply at a site like Gamer Sensei.

Gamer Sensei is a site that specializes in video game coaching and you can sign up as a coach to start getting paid here.

You can get paid to coach people wanting to be good at Fortnite, League of Legends, Overwatch and many other popular games.

5. Flip Free Stuff

If you know where to look, you can find free stuff everywhere.

People are constantly looking to get rid of all kinds of stuff without even caring if they make money off of it.

They just want it gone.

And this creates an opportunity for someone like you.

You can go to colleges, neighborhoods, garage sales, and things like that, or check the “free stuff” sections of sites like Craigslist and LetGo.

Then, once you start accumulating things, you can sell them on the same site you got them from or somewhere else that has free listings.

      There is no such thing to do business without money needed.
      At least you need money to buy internet data.
      It is better to say start business with “little money.”
