There are lots of opportunities to make money online, but you will have to pay for some of them in various ways. It is therefore worth thinking hard about how you want to make money if you cannot afford to pay anything out.

Many people think that you need a website to make money and this will cost you. You will need a domain and hosting and potentially need to pay a web designer to help out. You may need to pay for marketing help, stock to sell or logo and graphic design. These costs can obviously really add up and so many people avoid trying to make money online because of it. Alternatively, people may think that you to invest in order to an income in return or pay companies to give you work.  However, there are lots of ways that you can make money online without having to pay out anything.

Finding work that pays online can be a bit tricky as you need to make sure that you are looking at companies that will actually pay you. You will also be competing with people across the world, including those with lower standard of living, which means that the pay that you get may be lower. However, this will very much depend on the skills that you have and how scarce they are.

There are websites which advertise freelance jobs and these can be a good place to look for work. You should be able to check out reviews of the site to make sure that it is genuine and that you can trust it. They may take commission on the work that you find, but this will not mean that you have to pay out, just that you will get paid less. Alternatively, you can try to find work outside of this, perhaps looking at forums and message to see if anyone is advertising but you will have less ecurity with regards to making sure that you get paid.

There are other ways to find work through big trusted websites. Some people choose to do surveys, free lotteries, watch adverts and things like this to earn money. It is unlikely to pay out massive amounts, but it can be a fun way to supplement your income without having to do anything too difficult and even having fun at the same time.

It is always important to make sure that you are confident that you will get paid whatever type of work you are doing. Some sites may ask you to send out money in advance and these are usually not to be trusted, so you should not need to worry about having to pay out money in order to earn online. You will most likely have to open and account or subscribe to a website and you may need to submit your CV and other details but there is no reason why they should make you pay anything. Even if they do, you can afford to not use this site as there are so many alternative sites where you do not have to pay.
