Hello Alice, It does not look like much was provided. Affiliate marketing would be your best bet. It will take time and patience. I recommend a program from clickbank. Weight loss is a good niche to do. You will need a funnel to get emails. An autoresponder. And free traffic. I am new to this forum. I have had my fair share of trying to make it online for a while now. If you want to respond back. I can share some information with you. OK good luck to you. Daron Weathers
There are a number of online businesses you can start with little to no budget. For example, you could start a blog. When you start a blog, all you need is some hosting and a domain name, plus some content to write about. If you have no money for hosting, you can use a free blogging platform like WordPress.com and use free tools to help you create optimized content.
You can also start an ecommerce store without any investment. If you are looking to sell physical products, you can create a store on Shopify or another ecommerce platform (you just need to pay the monthly Shopify fee). If you want to sell digital products, you can create a store on Gumroad or Sellfy. These platforms allow you to create an online store and sell digital products without any upfront costs.
Finally, if you are looking to start an online service business, there are a number of platforms that allow you to start with no investment at all. For example, Fiverr allows you to start selling services with no up-front costs. All you need is a PayPal account, so they can pay you when someone buys your service.
The bottom line is that there are many online businesses that can be started with little or no budget.
One option is to start a business online that doesn't require a lot of upfront capital. For example, you could start a blog or an online store. You could also look into affiliate marketing or paid advertising.
If you're not sure where to start, you can take help from someone like Suyash Parnekar. He is a web developer who can help you get started with your online business. He also has a course that teaches people how to start and grow an online business with zero budget.
Knowing what I know now... if I were to start over now, I would do 2 things. First, I would clean up my house and set aside all items I want to get rid of and place them for sale on ebay. Yes, number one would be to set up an ebay store. Use funds from my first sales to start sourcing inventory from clearance racks in different stores like Walmart, Ross, TJ Maxx, etc.
Second, I would blog. I would start both at the same time, but ebay is likely to bring in revenue well before a blog. Build a blog around a topic of your choice. Get domain/hosting, and set up your blog on a self-hosted WP installation. Post often. Learn SEO basics if you don't know anything yet. Become obsessed with reaching 100k words on your website. Set goals, start with 25k for the first month.
For the blog, I would monetize with Amazon Associates links.
That's how I would start with a $0 budget. Hosting and domain cost a cheap monthly fee, but the ebay sales can cover that. Sell your own used stuff first!! It's way easier than people realize! It's hard to grow an ebay store and make a full-time living from it - but it's not super hard to make a decent side income from ebay.
