Ways to Earn Money without having to Spend Money

In the business industry, the saying “You have to spend money to make money” is the first thing that any business-minded person would surely put into practice.  Here are some of the most common instances which prove that this saying is true:

  • You have to put money in a savings account so that you can earn some interest on it.
  • You have to invest money into a stock market and try to make a good return on it.
  • You have to spend money to start a business in order to make a profit in the future.

All of the scenarios stated above are considered to be the “norm” for many people.  However, what about trying to make money even if you have no money to spend with in the first place?  Is that even possible?  The answer is YES!

Thanks to the technological age that we live in right now, the Internet has proven to be our important source of not only valuable information, but also extra income.  With the help of websites such as OLX classifieds, we can legitimately earn money without having to spend anything! OLX is a company that was established in March 2006 by Internet entrepreneurs Alec Oxenford and Fabrice Grinda.  It is now considered to be one of the biggest free classifieds website in the world.  According to Wikipedia, it hosts free user-generated classified advertisements for urban communities around the world and provides discussion forums sorted by various topics.  It provides you a simple solution to the complexities involved in selling, buying, trading and meeting people near you or wherever they may be in the world!

Ways to Earn Money without having to Spend Money (with the help of OLX):

You could create something that you can sell to others

If you have a creative mind, you may try developing products that you think other people would want to buy.  The possibilities are endless – from t-shirt printing, photography, crafts making to innovative home improvement products.

You could turn any of your possessions into cash

This is perhaps the most basic and easy way to make money without having to spend anything.  You could put up a garage sale or post some items up for sale at OLX.com.  Lots of people who greatly care about saving money and do not mind owning pre-loved stuff turn to buying used items such as furniture, clothes, cars, gadgets, toys, video games, collectibles, etc.

You can provide a service

In the early days, it is very common for young people to offer services to others in their neighborhood in exchange for money.  Such services may include babysitting, tutoring, cleaning the house, walking the dog, doing errands for elderly people, etc.   These kinds of services are still in high demand right now wherever you go, and the rates can be pretty good too!

Or if you have a knack for writing, you could also offer your services to those who are potentially looking for online writers, and you get to enjoy working at the comfort of your own home while trying to earn some extra money.

That’s an interesting way of putting it, but at some point no matter what the business is you have to invest to make it grow in the form of marketing or anything.

Hmm, are great tips to make money “easily”. Especially the last topic, we’re always helping neighbors, friends, acquaintances and the like, with some problems to solve basic and easy. great post.

Surely provide some services to people around is that infrastructure is one of the best things he has. Because people trust you already know it by, and this is beneficial because it will always ask you to do it if needed.
And make our goods in cash, sometimes it’s kind of hard, especially for me, I easily delete the material things, but eventually got rid of them. So I can only sell them.
Yes, it’s a great post.

I think the moral of the story is nothing in life comes for free. We all have to work for it, and it probably is a good thing that that is the way.

never heard of olx but it seems to be worth checking out. Blogging is one of the best examples of a way to make money without investing money. You can start on a free platform, make money, then reinvest that money into a domain name and hosting and make even more money.

OLX is a platform where the use of agents are avoided. We could purchase or sell the products/services at the price we think is worth for the goods.

I did not know about OLX until now. When it comes to online classified ads, Craigslist is the first thing that comes to my mind. Great tips though, thanks!

I think OLX is wonderful and I have been seeing its ads everywhere now. One thing that I want to ask is if anyone who is in other state is interested in buying your product then who will be responsible for the delivery?

I think the best way to promote your products is posting them in clickbank.
There are too many website builders trying to make money by selling your products so, in a way, they will work for you.


Pemba August 23, 2012 at 14:31

Nice tips to earn without spending. But if you take it in practically then its not impossible but quite difficult to implement. But then again, there is no harm in giving it a try, as it will cost one nothing.
