How to start an online business with zero dollars and no skills?

Forget Amazon, Dropshipping, Affiliate Marketing, or any other “business opportunity” you are being pitched.

Forget about paying for a high-ticket course or coaching program.

Forget about investing in expensive software whether it is a high one-time payment or subscription.

You need to focus on 1 thing and 1 thing only – and that is acquiring a skill that you can get 1 client to provide a service with.

This statement has 2 parts to it:

(a) Acquire an income skill, more on that in this blog with options.

(b) Learn how to find customers, a topic I cover in a free training webinar and a paid course.

Let’s take care of point “a”.

It does not matter what that skill is.

Dog walking, carpet cleaning, building a website, copywriting, video editing – it really does not matter.

However, in terms of income potential, the more unique the skill is, the bigger the problem it is for your customer, the more you can charge.

Example: The skill I learned how to do is how to build a sales funnel for someone.

If someone comes to me and says, “I’m not tech-savvy at all. I need help with my sales funnel.”

I know for certain they will waste literally weeks researching what is the best software, how to use it, and even when they start using it, they will get completely lost and frustrated. Depending on the person, they may even struggle with copywriting, they may struggle with their pricing, they may struggle with what lead magnet to use, they will struggle with payment integrations, and so on.

The bigger the struggle the more I can make.

Think about it logically.

If they are going to literally spend 100 hours getting absolutely nowhere, and you can come and get it done for them in a matter of 48 hours (like I do), they would happily pay you $1,000 for it.

Can you see?

So how do you acquire these skills? The answer is through books and courses.

I will list the books at the very end of this blog.

Example of software companies that provide a ton of free training on their website:

  1. I am curious about how to get started on making money at home. I have nothing work but an Android phone and no money to get off the ground with. Thank you for all the info provided

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by my website and leaving a comment.

      I understand your situation.

      The best thing you can do is to try and raise some money to buy a laptop first.

      You really should have a laptop to make money online.

      You might want to sell some items of FB marketplace for example from your phone.

      If you can drive, perhaps you can sign up for driving Uber.

      There are also free stuff you can get on FB marketplace or Craiglist and then resell it for something.

      Perhaps find the odd job to just make some quick money.

      Once you have a laptop, you should definitely pick up an online skill you can learn. For example, learn video editing, or learn how to build a website.

      I know this might sound tough or challenging or that it is not quick.

      That’s all true.

      And anyone that sells you a magic bullet to make quick money is not being honest or is trying to just sell you for their profit.

      Hope this helps.
