You no longer need money to make money, if you want to start a business.
Here are 5 businesses you can start for free.
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.
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:
- 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.
3. Graphic Design Services
Another type of service you can get paid for without investment is graphic design.
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.
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.
