Hello everyone. Today, I’m going to do something fun, Motivating, and educational at the same time. I decided to set myself a challenge for something that I know many of you wanted me to do. Can I find 10 websites online where can you make money for free? I want to find 10 totally free sites where you can earn money without having to spend any money to earn it. Without hidden subscription services, without hidden fees, nothing of the sort.
But you know what, the challenge does not end there. I decided to raise the ceiling of the challenge. Can I find 10 sites where I can Make money online for free without a credit card? Guess what? I think I achieved the goal.
Now a disclaimer, those ten sites will not make you a millionaire overnight. But as you will see, by working, people were able to build sources of income on those sites.
I hope this article encourages you and it breaks those mental barriers that you may be suffering from. Where you think about things like, Oh, you need money to earn money, Or you need to live in America, Or you need a credit card.
Because you know, those myths are not real. What you actually need is work. So, let’s start strongly. Because this site is the first, it can be used internationally. Yes, this site makes money for people around the world.
However, you’ll need to know the secret method that I will show you. Now, when you see this first site, I don’t want you to get through it quickly. This is because I bet some of you will say, Kelvin, look, I am not talented enough “To earn money using this site.” But you know, I bet this is not true.
1) So, the first site, redbubble.com.
What is Redbubble and how do you make money from it? Well, it’s a site that allows you to make money by creating and selling customized products online. It lets you do things like sell t-shirts, Phone covers, e.t.c. But how do you make them?
Well, it’s simple. Once you create an account, which is completely free, you only need to enter your name and email address. You can start uploading artwork and designs to products in literally less than a minute. Without the need for a credit card. You can choose the products you want to list and sell with your artwork on the Internet. You can customize your products, choose colors & model. Then describe your custom product and your title.
When a customer buys one of them, Like T-shirts, Redbubble is a production warehouse. They print your T-shirt design, package the t-shirt, then ship it to the customer automatically, without you doing anything.
In this industry, we have a name for the service. It’s called print-on-demand. As you can see, once you create and raise your designs to products, you have an income that is absolutely passive.
With Redbubble, they pay you a commission on every sold product with standard commission rates of 20%. Because they pay you as commission, you will never pay any fees. So selling is free. Now I can imagine for some of you, there are two major objections you may have by now. The first objection… Well, Kelvin, but is it really free? Sure, I can make a T-shirt to sell. But what about data traffic? Should I not pay to advertise my T-shirt? The answer is no.
Do you know how people come to eBay. They search for the products they want to buy. eBay has invested a lot of money in advertising. So it is very popular now so much so that it is called a destination site. People come here and buy products every day. Therefore, most eBay sellers earn money only by people looking for their products.
Well, Redbubble is the same. It is a destination site. People come here looking for the products they want to buy. That is why most sellers on Redbubble earn money through the free data traffic obtained by their lists Via the search bar.
We now turn to objection number two. Well Kelvin, that’s great, you know. What if I’m not a graphic artist, you know? Look, this is a great picture on the phone’s cover. But I can’t draw it. Guess what, I can’t either. I can’t draw those jackets. But here’s the thing. To earn money on Redbubble, you don’t need to be an artist.
Now, let me ask you a question. Does designing a t-shirt seem difficult? Because I’m going to tell you now, it’s so easy. I have very little graphic design skills. I use the free app Canva that has open source fonts licensed for commercial use. And it takes less than five minutes, because it’s literally just text.
Anyone can make a t-shirt, raise and sell it. This is the secret. If you do not possess graphic design skills and you want to make money, focus on selling cute t-shirts. This is because most of the time it adds simple text design Humor and makes it more fun.
Well, I sold your funny t-shirt. Fabulous, But how do I receive the money, Kelvin?
Well, Redbubble has two payment options. First, they can pay directly via Paypal or they can pay directly to the bank. Now, unfortunately, bank deposits are available only for a limited number of countries. However, there is an alternative solution, It is called Payoneer.
With Payoneer, you can set up your own American bank account to receive money online for free. Most people think that you cannot set up a Payoneer Redbubble Account because Redbubble requests a physical bank address. This is not what Payoneer tells you about your account information. However, they will send it to you If you contact them and ask for their support.
By doing this, people can connect Payoneer Bank accounts with a Redbubble account. And they receive payments in it. Another thing, Redbubble is similar to Etsy. If you type fun t-shirts in the Etsy search engine, I will get many results too. In fact, there are thousands of fun t-shirts on Etsy, literally. So how do they choose a t-shirt to include it on the first page? The first way the search engine determines this is, is by Sales :
If the t-shirt is popular, It will take a high position in the search results. Thus we know that all t-shirts on the first page were recently popular. Likewise with Redbubble, We know that all t-shirts on the first page were popular recently.
So yes, simple text designs. If they’re cute, they sell greatly. But Kelvin, you say, “How do I get those initial sales “In order for my t-shirt to begin ranking for bigger words like “fun” and I’m still in the beginning?”
Well, there’s a secret method that I’m going to show you. Instead of making a cool wider t-shirt , If you have no ideas, create a specific niche design. Look for niches and groups of people that have been ignored.
There is only one problem in some niches like engineering. If at Redbubble we looked for a fun engineer t-shirt, You know, we’ll see that there Lots of t-shirts already that we will have to compete with in sales. So, this is what you should do. Look for a group of people that have no T-shirt already made for them. So if we search for another passionate career, Science teachers, we’ll see that, yes, there are a lot of T-shirts made for them. But what about another kind of teacher? How about a drama teacher.
If we search for this, we will find something interesting. While there are t-shirts aimed at people Interested in drama and theater and general teachers’ T-shirts. There are very few of them that are intended specifically for drama teachers. This niche is wide open For someone who makes great fun t-shirts for them & take all sales and traffic as a gift for drama teachers. Because again, if you come to the search bar, And this time I wrote gifts for drama teachers. You will see, again, we will get gifts Intended for theater lovers and gifts for teachers in general, But very little is directed at drama teachers. This is because this group has been completely ignored on Redbubble.
It is wide open for you or anyone to enter and makes great products for. Well, to the next site, I think many people may get to know it. This is because it appears on YouTube a lot, But you may never know that you can make money from it. In fact, some people gain from it over $ 100,000 annually, mostly passive income.
Now, there are two ways to make money on this site. The first is the slow method. It is the clearest way To earn money from it. However, after this, I will tell you about an unknown way for many to make money from it faster, And to earn much more money than from the first way. And don’t worry, when many see this site, they will say, “Look, Kelvin, I don’t have enough skill.”
“I do not have enough qualification. I can’t do it.” However, if you keep reading, as you’ll see, you do not need special abilities or have any skill at all.
2) So the site is Skillshare.
This site sponsors many YouTube content creators. However, usually, when people come here, they pay them $ 10 a month to access all of their video courses. So, for example, if i want to learn how a latte works, just write that in the search box and suddenly, I’ll see a bunch of free video courses to watch.
Here is what most people do not know. The class was made by someone I don’t know. This is because everyone is allowed to make a Skillshare class and start earning money from them. Me, you, anyone. On average, new teachers earn between 200 to 3,000 dollars in the first month, Which is very cool. But this is not the best part. The best part is that once you put your classes up, all the money you earn, is passive. And remember, they earn that amount in the first month and with their first course. Imagine what happens when they make another course and then another.
It all adds up. Once your class is live, you don’t have to do anything. Thus, people can earn Over $ 100,000 annually with Skillshare. How to profit in Skillshare is that, for every minute someone watches your videos, you get paid. If i want to learn how to make pressed French coffee, I will watch a five-minute video. Then the content-creator will be paid for each of the five minutes.
Now, you may notice that this says It received only a thousand students. Well, all this means is a thousand people Watch a large portion of this course, But the majority, the overwhelming majority of people only watch the videos they want. For example, most people will come here and say, “You know, I just want to know “How to make cold black coffee.” Because they only watch one video, they will not be considered students. However, the content-creator will get the money for all these views.
If you want to make more money from your classes, you can put them on our third website, Udemy. Udemy is another site It also allows you to sell your courses. Unlike Skillshare, a subscription service, here, people buy your courses individually. For this reason, earnings on Udemy tend to be higher. Teachinguide.com estimates about 40% of the classes earned more than $ 5,000.
Actually I have a friend who makes around $ 25,000 per year for one course and that’s great. However, you might think, “Well, Kelvin, that’s great and everything, “There are only two problems. First, I have no skills. “I have nothing to teach. How do I make a class and then sell it? “And Kelvin, I have another problem with all of this. “This is great, you know, “But you know, I want more money than that.” Well, never be afraid, I will help you. Here’s what you will do. Check this out. Go to udemy and search Photoshop. As we can see, many people want to learn Photoshop.
And guess what, you can do it for free. Most educational videos are a Mixture of speaking and slideshow Talk for people editing inside Photoshop. Even if you are like me And you have, “a funny accent and people don’t like how you pronounce words.” Never be afraid because a lot of Photoshop lessons are taught by people who have foreign accents. Anyway, let’s go to YouTube and search Photoshop tutorials. You will get several educational videos. And you know what you can do, take Popular topics and videos, recreate them yourself. Afterwards, list those videos on Skillshare and Udemy. You do not need to be a Photoshop expert. But wait, Kelvin, “You say, “Don’t you need to pay 10 dollars to buy a monthly Photoshop subscription?” No, Photoshop has a free seven-day trial. Download it and work hard in these 7 days and record a lot of educational videos.
But wait, Kelvin, “You say, Don’t you need money to buy a screen recording program to make these videos?” Nope. There is an open source screen recording software. Additionally, there is a free video editing program for you to use. But wait, Kelvin, “You say, “Do you need to buy a microphone to do voiceover?” Well, not if you have a phone that records audio. Things get better than that. This is because Adobe has an affiliate program you can use it to earn more money. If you don’t know what affiliate is, you can read about it here.
So yes, I believe strongly that affiliate is a great way to make money on Skillshare. It is allowed. But you know, not many people do it on Skillshare. Once you create your courses on Skillshare and Udemy, register for Adobe Affiliate Program & get your tracking link. Then put the link in the description Your Photoshop lessons, and tell people that they can click on it to get a free trial for Photoshop. And every time someone buys Photoshop or an Adobe product, You will get a commission of 85% for the first month’s subscription.
If you want to earn more money from these platforms, Create video tutorials for products that have affiliate programs and a free trial period for you to benefit from. Here is advice. Skillshare have two different accounts You can register with them. You can sign up for a $ 10 monthly account. Which you can easily get a free two-month trial, But you do not need this to create a course. To make an educational course there and become a teacher, all you need is their free plan.
Of course, once you start and recreate the educational videos that you found on YouTube, What’s preventing you from posting them to YouTube itself? This is definitely the fifth website on the list.
If you do not have a skill filming and editing videos, tutorials are a great way to start earning money on YouTube.(No camera required!!)
Of course, if you have the skill to shoot video, You may want to take a look at the following site, Shutterstock. Of course, here you can sell pictures and videos that you take as stock footage. Will people buy this? Certainly. Lots of money is spent on stock videos.
I know people who make thousands of dollars passively Monthly from their portfolios. Profit is not by selling pictures. But by selling 4K videos. These commissions give high royalty commissions. If Shutterstock sounds like a website you want to make money from, I highly recommend focusing on 4K videos.
7) Now the next site is, Merch by Amazon.
Not many people know this, But Amazon also has its own on-demand printing service. It works just like Redbubble. If you decide to apply, I would recommend searching on Google For best practices for submitting an application. But if you are accepted, you enter the on-demand-printing service. All you have to do is upload a work of art or design. Amazon will then make these products for you. And you can create an Amazon product listing that people can find it just by using their search engine. You can set your price, add your title and description & edit your entire list.
Now, some people use Merch by Amazon as a secondary income. Some people use it to earn a full-time income.
You don’t have to pay for the cost of producing a T-shirt to sell. Amazon deducts it from the product price. So how do you get your commissions? Well, Amazon pays them to a bank account. This includes a Payoneer account.
Well, then the next site. It’s kind of a bit repetitive but, trust me, don’t go through it quickly. This is because I will tell you the secret which will enable you to earn money from it.
8) Well, the site is Fiverr.
Now if you don’t know what Fiverr is, It is a place for freelancers offer their services In the form of independent services that people can buy.
It is free to register and list the services to sell. If you are an entrepreneur, this is a great site for making money. And seriously, I spend a lot of money here, I have spent thousands buying services from people last year. So I know a lot of money can be earned here. This is because I pay people thousands of dollars every year.
Now usually, people hate Fiverr as a suggestion to make money for it very competitive. However, this is because everyone is trying to do business Like everyone such as offering a blog post ranking service. Lots of people are doing this.
So in order to make sales, you must have very many reviews to stand out. Or if they are artists, they are trying to make gigs around very popular services. For example, t-shirt design for print-on-demand stores. Again, you need a lot of reviews to stand out. But you know, this is not how you earn money as a broke freelancer on Fiverr.
With Fiverr, the most important thing is to do research. Don’t just try to sell what everyone else is selling.
If you are a freelance writer living in the united states & you just want to make money writing and don’t want to hustle for clients, be sure to visit this site, Textbroker. The way this works is to register on the site, and take a test writing sample.
Based on that, you are assigned a level. Most of those I know who got good grades in an English class in school get a 4-star rating right away. This gives you 1.4 cents per word. Once assigned, you can then login to the orders portal, choose an order, and write an article for it. Now, I don’t know about you. Personally, I can write a 1,000-word essay within an hour. This equates to $ 14 an hour with a 4-star rating.
But, if you strive hard in writing skill and hit that 5-star rating, you now get $ 50 an hour. Unfortunately, I am almost certain that it is only available to Americans. But the following site is available to all countries of the world.
There are many opportunities for people to make money online with Instagram.
The way to monetize an Instagram page is by creating an e-book for free using an e-book creator app. Then, create a two-week trial on ClickFunnels. You can then make a small website to sell the e-book.
You know, you can actually sell products using ClickFunnels without paying anything during the two-week trial period which I found very cool. They don’t force you to upgrade early if you try to sell something.
After that, you can announce your e-book on your Instagram page. You can sell your e-book for less than 20 dollars or for any price you want.
I’m sorry, I have to admit something to you. I lied to you today. This method is not free, You can also buy a domain name from Namecheap.com for $ 8.88. You then link it to your account instead of using the free sub-domain for ClickFunnels.
Kelvin, how could you? You promised us only free ways, And $ 8.88 is not free. That’s $ 8.88. Look, I’m sorry, you are right. I will make it up to you by showing you 2 completely free methods you can use to earn money with Instagram.
Here is one of them. This meme page on Instagram for cats. When you click on the link in the biography, it takes you to their print-on-demand store where they sell their own t-shirts. And remember what anyone can do. Anyone can create their own on-demand print store with Redbubble, and start selling t-shirts with FREE Instagram traffic right now.
So, did i deliver on my challenge? Let me know what you think in the comments below. If you have any other sites you would like me to add to this list, be sure to let me know in the comments section, in order to help remove this mental barrier that many people have, that makes them think that they need money to earn money.
