Starting a business without capital. Is it possible?
All of us would love to make a little more money. Sometimes just a little to supplement an income can be a huge help. Today it is easier that you think to start a business with zero capital.
Many people today look for ways to make money online. One of the easiest ways is to start a blog. We can get them for free and use them as a method to keep others informed of what we are doing or about a certain topic. You can actually turn your website into extra cash by placing some ads on your blog.
How PPC ads work
When people go onto your blog, if they see an ad that is interesting and click it on you receive what is known as a referral payment. The more clicks the better. Gradually your earnings will increase as your website gets viewed.
Many people start a business both online and offline without capital. Sometimes they bootstrap their business by reinvesting the funds as they make revenue and other times they fail because of lack of focus and capital.
You’re not likely going to get rich with just one blog. However, it is a way to get started. There may come a time when you create another blog and you can start turning this into a money making passive online asset as well.
Using Affiliate Programs
You could sign up for an affiliate program and make money through their ads. To do this well you need to think of an appropriate affiliate program that readers of your site would appreciate. For example, if you site is about pets, you may want to look for affiliates that work with pet supplies, pet food or veterinary services.
You’ll want to have affiliate offers that will enhance your site. Having ads for rare books or sporting goods on a pet’s website isn’t going to attract too much attention. However, you can place retargeting ad networks which may pay you simply for impressions and not just clicks.
Once you have a site up and running, you need to get a list of affiliate companies that will give you their advertising banners or codes. There are hundreds of companies, but just stick to the proven money makers when you start your business.
Three affiliate networks that are incredibly popular are Google AdSense, Commission Junction (CJ) and Ratuken (formerly). These can help you find affiliates for your website.
Signing up for one of these affiliate programs is easy and free. You will be asked for personal information so don’t be put off. This is necessary because they will be paying you commissions. You’ll be expected to give your social security number as well. Once you sign up you will need to think about which programs to choose.
Using affiliate networks can help you start your business without any upfront costs such as purchasing supplies or items first.
Fill up those blank spaces on your blog with advertisements and let the money roll in. You can always expand and create more websites, thus building an empire of money making blogs.
Affiliate programs are great ways to help you earn money. You can start off small with your own site and then expand into other areas. Eventually, you could build your own affiliate business. Look into affiliate marketing. It could be quite lucrative.
