The main component to making money online
Okay, so all of these methods can be executed 100% free. Let’s look at what the main component for making money online is and I will tie that into how to do it for free. So what is the main component? The main component is traffic. Without people seeing your product or subscribing to youtube or reading your blog you can make money.

So, you know you can generate traffic for free. However, it is challenging. If you choose youtube then there are several videos on youtube to
teach you about getting views. The problem is it isn’t as easy as they make it sound, but it is doable 100% free. As for the rest of the money-making ideas traffic will come mainly from search engines and social media. This is where it gets challenging.
Let’s say you are writing a blog and you are doing it for free no PPC ads, no facebook ads just organic traffic. Start with social media. Make sure you have an Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter and post daily. Build a following and you can get some traffic from there. The next step is to tackle Google.
