Can I really make any money on the Internet without actually having any money?

Can you make money online without investing a cent?  Yes, you can.

Let me give you an example... you join a free to join site that pays commissions on upsells for free members as well, like my site that pays free members up to 40% commissions on referring other free members that upgrade to the paid Gold membership.

Then you promote that site by simply using the tool itself to cloak any kind of links you use or by participating in free online forums discussions like e.g. the and mention your own ViralURL link in the signature under your posts.

As other forum members read your posts, that by the way should provide valuable information by answering other peoples questions or ask questions on your own, they will see your signature and some will click on your ViralURL link.

They will see that they can use the basic system for free, signup... and a percentage of those will decide to upgrade to the Gold membership.  That's what will earn you a commission.  And as you see... you didn't spemd a single dime to earn it.

If people have more time then money, I recommend to use this approach.

For those that have more money then time, there are other (paid) methods to get results faster, like e.g. using Google Adwords (PPC).

I personally started online in 1996, figured out that I need my own products that provide value to my customers in 2000 and went finally full-time in December 2001.

It took me a while, but it was worth it.  :)
