Can You Start an Online Business With No Money?

What is needed to be done to start an online business, but short on cash to invest? A lot of times when I'm browsing through forums I come across people's posts who are new to internet marketing and want to start businesses online. They crave to be successful like the top marketers like Joe Vitale, Terry Dean and others who make a good living online. Yet, many feel it takes quite a bit of cash to start and don't feel they can afford it right now.

To run any business online you of course will cost a little money for web hosting and a domain name. But hosting can be found free with ads and domain names cost around $5. I will show you some things here to help you build your own product and market it for $0. You will want to switch to paid hosting, which is usually about $20 a month (to get rid of the ads) to be more professional to your customers as soon as you start making some advertising money you can invest some back into your business.

You should first (and most importantly in your business plan) make out a list of the skills you have acquired. You may have vast knowledge of an area you have learned at work. Maybe you know more than one language. Or, your hobbies are a great teacher of skills such as in an area of sports.

Now, take a look at your list of skills and find ones that you know would be of interest to other people to learn. Take for example, you love fishing, you wish you could just fish all day long. You know you have areas of expertise in fishing and know others love fishing. Take your knowledge and make a monthly tips course out of it that people would pay to subscribe to. Since you are the expert there is no need to pay someone else to give you information.

Take for another example, my latest ebook #1 on Google in 2 Days. I have been internet marketing for 5 years and have expertise in this niche. When an article of mine jumped to the top of Google, quickly beating out all competition, I analyzed what I exactly had done and made a step by step book of it. Then I made a free download page giving it away to help grow my email list.

And the best part is it was free, I just supplied my knowledge. To actually make the product I did use my Adobe and Snag-it programs. But, you can find similar programs free on the internet. If not a friend probably has programs you could use to build it.

You can still start an online business without a lot of cash, a first option to raise money in your new business is to use your existing knowledge and skill you have picked up in a particular field. The list is probably long; things learned at work, hobbies, or just anything you have a great interest in and have learned a lot about. And, it will be from your own personal view, showing tips and unique ideas. Share and profit by your knowledge.
