5 easy online jobs without investment

Starting a new business, however small, can often mean an initial investment, whether that’s in new stock or premises. And, some offers of home-based jobs which ask for an investment up front can actually be a scam.

But, there are genuine online jobs without investment which can enable you to make money from home, without any start-up costs. Here just 5 ideas for you of online jobs that don’t require any investment at all:

Writing jobs

If you have a passion for the written word, then an online writing job is the perfect way to earn cash without having to make an initial investment. All you need is flair, talent, impeccable spelling and grammar, and an in-depth knowledge of, or the ability to research, your subject matter. You could make money from home by copywriting for a website, writing blogs or even producing product descriptions.

Data entry

While data entry jobs may have suffered in reputation from unscrupulous ‘employers’ who offer a position only to ask for cash upfront to set up a worker in a role which never materialises, there are genuine opportunities out there. Many financial firms require staff to search through, review and input large amounts of data, updating databases with information so their experts and clients have the most up-to-date details at their fingertips.


Companies and individuals need transcriptions for all manner of reasons – whether it’s a busy professional who wants their dictation typed up, or a company who needs minutes of their meetings turned from audio or video to written form for their records, there are a wealth of transcription jobs available online. You simply need to be a stickler for detail and accuracy to impress potential clients.


Time-poor businesspeople often need research to be carried out on their behalf. Journalists and interviewers might want information on their interviewee before they go to speak to them, meaning a trawl of the internet to find previous newspaper articles written about the subject or academic articles written by them, for example. While, those wishing to set up a new business or to expand an existing one may want you to find out about competitors so they can formulate their business plan.

Social media manager

While social media is becoming an ever-increasingly important tool for businesses to market their goods or services and to engage with potential customers and clients, finding enough time to properly manage a Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest site can be tricky. That’s where you can come in, uploading interesting content, replying to followers or fans and increasing the number of likes or retweets.

The days when job seekers were so desperate to find work that they would agree to pay fees upfront are, hopefully, over because job sites like quiddoo, social media and the internet as a whole have made it so much easier to find bona fide online jobs with no investment.

Should I Quit My Job?

should I quit?

Do you often find asking yourself any of these questions? 

  •  Should I quit my Job?

  •  Am I using my natural talents daily?

  •  Does what I’m doing matter? 

  •  Do I want to be my own boss? 

A research conducted in the USA earlier this year with over 150,000 participants shows that 70% of the workers are not happy with their jobs.

80% of the employed people in Europe are claimed to be not happy in their jobs.

Are you one of them?

Perhaps you might feel you’re alone but you would be pleasantly surprised that there are several others in the same situation as you. In fact, a daily newspaper in the UK published a report late last year with a headline -

Hating your job is as bad for your health as being unemployed, researchers warn 

  • A demanding job, nasty boss and poor job security are as bad for your mental health as being out of work 

  •  Only those who enjoy their jobs fare better 

  •  Also linked to increased risk of heart disease

To make the most, be honest about your current work environment and whether you are in a position where you can do work that truly embodies who you are and the difference you want to make in the world, or if it’s time for you to move on so you can build a career around the work you Love.

8 Examples of Home based Jobs

work from home jobs

While home based jobs may once have had connotations of poor pay and a lack of variety, those days are long gone. Now, with the ever growing popularity of remote and flexible working among both employers and employees, the choice of home-based jobs and the ways of making money from home is manifold. Here are just a few ideas if you want to work from home online:

Blog writing 

blog writing

Newspapers may be facing circulation decline as readers look elsewhere for their information, meaning that print writing and reporting jobs are in short supply. But, a myriad of opportunities exists online for professional and amateur writers, and those who are experts in certain subjects. Most online companies are now recognising the benefits of incorporating a blog into their site, to improve their Google rankings and provide added value for users.

Graphic designer 


They say a picture paints a thousand words and a good design can communicate visual ideas even more effectively – combining images and words into a coherent whole. Like copywriters, graphic designers can work for individuals, big and small companies, creating sales brochures, website design, business cards, leaflets, e-bulletins, and much more.

Shop keeper 

If you’ve always fancied owning your own vintage fashion store, bookshop or baby clothing outlet, but you don’t want the commitment of certain opening hours, or the costs and overheads associated with starting up and maintaining a physical business, you could start up online instead. According to latest Office for National Statistics figures, the average weekly online spend in the UK increased by nearly 9% year on year from January 2012 to January 2013. By setting up business online from home, you could take a share of that ever-increasing market.

Social media 


As businesses continue to place more importance on social media as part of their marketing strategy, they are searching for help from experts within this field to launch Facebook or Twitter accounts, to manage them, add content and increase likes and followers.


translation service

If you’re a native speaker or you’re fluent in another language, you can use your skills to make money from home. Many people are looking for talented individuals to translate audio clips or print texts into another language, or simply to proof read copy which may have been written by a non-native speaker. Businesses want to make sure they have all the nuances of a language correct in order to impress potential clients and customers, or to break into new markets.

Virtual assistant

Even if you think you don’t have any skills that you can offer online, you’d be wrong. If you’re a stay-at-home mum, you’ll be more than adept at time management and multi-tasking. Many people are now looking for girl (or boy for that matter) Fridays, who can work from home as a virtual assistant. Virtual assistants can work for large companies, small companies and even solo entrepreneurs, providing administrative, technical and social support and becoming a valuable asset for busy business people trying to tick off their to-do list.

Search engine evaluator 


Given that the first touch point for most customers is to search online when they want a particular product or service, search engine evaluators can provide vital advice to companies. Evaluators look for specific topics, keywords and images, charting how a firm’s website appears in search engine results, before reviewing and rating the site and providing valuable tools and advice for businesses hoping to revamp their site and improve their rankings.


The demand for online tutoring is increasing because many people, particularly young people, are more comfortable interacting with a tutor online. That means parents are taking on online tutors to help their children with their biology A levels or their maths GSCEs, while those searching for some technical help are also turning to home-based tutors for help. These could be small business owners who want to be shown how to design their own website, or who want to be brought up to date on the latest health and safety legislation. The possibilities are endless.


Hopefully, our 8 ideas have provided some inspiration to get your search for a home-based job off the ground.
