Can I start an online business without investment?

It’s no wonder that this is one of the questions I get asked most often as an online business advisor. It isn’t possible to start a business with zero money – but selling online is the best option if you have little money to invest.

Compared to any other type of business, selling online requires hardly any investment to get going – and can grow according to your needs. Let’s see how our guide for starting an online business can help:

  • We start you off by showing you how to make money from things you already own.
  • Then we show you how to invest the profits from that, and any money you can spare, to buy your first lot of stock (£50 is enough to get started!).
  • When you sell your first stock, use everything you’ve made to buy more stock.
  • Try to invest a small amount each month -this, along with putting your profits back in, will help you to grow.

Can I make money fast with no investment?

You will struggle to make money fast if you haven’t got a lot of money to invest in your online business. But if you have a few months to let your profits build up, and you can afford to put all of your profits back into the business at first, you’ll soon be making a good income.
