What Business Can I Start with Little Money?

Last Update: January 31, 2016

This blog is more for those who have never heard of Wealthy Affiliate than those who are already members, but it can also serve as a good reminder for newbs who have not quite got their affiliate business off the ground yet.

The question at hand is:

What Business Can I Start with Little Money?

Affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is the perfect business to start with little money.

I started my first successful affiliate marketing website with the $14 it takes to register a domain name (see https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/jeremywest/blog/wh...).

You can do that too. Although, if you have a spare $19 beyond that for some training (and if you can save up about $1.50 a day for the next month, you can continue your training), you will have a much greater chance of success a lot faster.

Why Does it Take So Little Money to Get Started with Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is simply selling other people's products from your website. Actually, you are not even selling the products, you are simply referring people from your website to the website that is selling them.

This means you don't need an office, you don't need any goods on stock, you don't need any staff. You don't need anything... except a website.

What Will I Be Doing as an Affiliate Marketer?

As an affiliate marketer, you will be writing about the things you love. Whether it is travel, sports, video games, pets, children, books or making money online, there are thousands of affiliate marketing niches out there.

You will be helping people with the information they are looking for, and recommending products and services that will help them achieve their goals.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, it's easy to get started.

So How Do I Get Started with Affiliate Marketing?

Getting started is the easy part. And actually, getting started is absolutely free, so you can see if it is for you.

Just click "Create a Free Account" at the top of this page and then start the free lessons under "Get Started Here" which will allow you to create one or two websites for free.

This will give you a really good idea of what is involved in affiliate marketing so you can decide whether it is something you can really commit to before parting with your hard earned $33 ($14 for a domain name and $19 for another month's training).
