you know i've said it before but i will say it again free free free everybody loves free hey everyone and welcome back and today i'm gonna be answering a question that i'm often asked and that is this sarah i would love to start my own business so that i can finally quit my job that i hate and instead earn money buy myself on my own terms as my own boss yes there's just a one problem i don't have any money which is exactly why i want to start a business you know and yet despite the fact that being broke is probably the number one reason why most people want to start a business somewhat ironically the u.s small business association estimates that the average small business spends three thousand dollars in startup costs to launch their business ouch but never fear my friends because that is exactly why i have made this video today it is to show you how through some creative solutions you can indeed become your own boss for free yep no fees no startup costs nothing zilch as long as you know the right tips and tricks and so to help you i've created the five steps to starting your own profitable business for free from scratch so let's start with step one which is this choose a business idea that is free because you see here is the deal right well it is true that anyone could start a business for free it doesn't mean that they can just start any business for free a lot of businesses especially businesses that are based off of line have unavoidable startup costs so for example let's say you wanted to open your own offline clothing store well you'd have some unavoidable expenses firstly you'd have to buy your clothes that you wanted to resell from a wholesaler in advance and then next you need to hire people to run your store for you and then you'd need to pay rent on the building whereas for businesses that are based primarily online as you will see you can often use apps and social media platforms to do these things for you in the online digital space and pay nothing for it so for example take a content business a content business is when you place content on a social media platform and then you earn money through that content like for example ads so this youtube channel it's an example of a free content business i make content i.e videos and then people watch the ads that youtube places on top of my videos and i earn a split of that ad revenue last month i made almost 27 000 us dollars just from my split of the ad revenue alone and the wonderful thing about a content business is that usually the biggest expense is the hardware to make the content such as a computer or a phone and most people already have these things anyway so they can get started for free mr beast arguably the most successful youtuber in the world initially started his youtube channel with just his phone as his camera which shows that you don't need a fancy filming setup to make money with your own content business but it's not just through ads that you can make money with a content business you can also do sponsored posts so take this content business on instagram instead of posting their videos on youtube they instead create and find cute and funny dog videos on the internet and then collect them into one instagram account for people to follow this account is grown organically from people finding it through hashtags and do people sharing their content well on this instagram shoutout marketplace shoutcart they are selling a 24-hour instagram feed shout out with a link in your account bio for 35 dollars and they are also selling an instagram story with a swipe up link for 25 and so then if we go back to their instagram account you'll see that today they are running this 24 hour instagram shout out post with a bio link to a gadget that helps people clean up their dog poop easier and they're also running a paid sponsorship for a dog training ebook in their instagram stories usually i find this page is running at least one shout out on their stories and one feed shout out a day which is 60 us dollars and well if you do the maths sixty dollars times seven days a week is four hundred and twenty dollars for essentially reposting pictures and videos of cute dogs which is pretty cool and this is just one of the many free animal instagram content businesses that i've highlighted on this channel using this strategy every day people are using instagram to make content businesses like this on a range of niche topics and earn money with shout outs however i also understand that not everyone enjoys being in front of a computer screen or on a phone on social media websites and apps and so if this is you don't fret you can still have a digital based business while going out and about thanks to a range of gig websites and apps so here in new zealand we have this good website here that lets you hire dog walkers most countries will have their own versions so in the usa you have rover and you have wag with these you can register for free as a dog walker and start your own dog walking business while you'll be spending most of your time walking dogs in reality most of the business is actually being done online but the apps in the website are basically running most of the business for you and automating it because you think about it in the past if you wanted to start your own dog walking business you'd have had to have paid a printing factory to print a bunch of advertising flyers and then drop them off in people's litter boxes and hope they would call you back but now for this digital base you have an app that does all of that marketing and admin stuff for you for free they take a percentage cut from the money the customer pays and that's it that way you can focus on the fun part walking dogs you know if i was younger and needed to earn a nice side income while at uni or college i'd totally consider starting a business like this not only is it free but as i saw on reddit people had turned this into a nice side gig earning them hundreds of dollars per week and some had even quit their full-time jobs to earn a nice full-time income too which was pretty cool and i love this since well as my subscribers know there are two things in life that always make me smile and the first thing is anytime that someone takes a moment out of a very busy day to give my videos a like and to subscribe because seriously every time you do it it genuinely supports me so thank you so much to those of you out there that take a moment to do so but the second thing that always makes me smile is dogs especially my little best friend starbuck a swedish valhand so if like me you adore animals this is a super cool free business idea but of course understandably not everyone is a dog fan so if you aren't a dog fan you have tons of other gigs that you can choose from as well uber and of course ubereats are the classic ones but you've got lots of others like taskrabbit for the handymen out there watching and instacart for those that love shopping i checked it out and read it and there were lots of people earning 15 to 25 plus us dollars an hour with their grocery shopping business with instacart which was cool but of course if you do prefer to do business from your phone or computer you have tons of options so take for example one of my businesses that i run my print on demand business you can start something like this for free thanks to websites like zazzle cafe press spreadshirt and redbubble which is the biggest and most popular of the dedicated print on demand websites the way it works is simple you see redbubble is a super popular online store that sells over 400 million dollars of merchandise every year such as hoodies and mugs and posters and t-shirts which are extremely popular bc here is a thing right redbubble doesn't design any of the pictures or slogans that they sell on their merch that they sell such as t-shirts nope instead they let people like you or i upload our pictures and slogans and sell them onto merchandise for free so what you do is you create a free redbubble account and then you upload your picture or slogan to the website you then give it a name a description and you tag it with some relevant keywords you then choose which your write-up was merged you think your slogan or design will look good on and then you save it redbubble will store a digital copy of the picture or slogan that you uploaded into its database and it will create product pages for each of the products that you selected and now rebubbles tens of millions of customers who come here each year will be able to come and find your products and buy them and so what happens is that every time that someone does come and says buys a t-shirt featuring a slogan that i uploaded redbubble's merch factory will then print the slogan onto the t-shirt package the t-shirt up and ship it out to the customer they'll remove their production fees and then pay you the rest of the profit as a thank you commission for uploading that picture or slogan many of my subscribers now earn hundreds of dollars a month in commissions on redbubble from your print-on-demand businesses congratulations everybody and if you'd like to learn more about how i and others are earning money every day with print on demand you should be sure to download my free ebook there's six tips that six figure online stores followed to make over ten thousand dollars a month and you'll find a link to download my free ebook in the video description below but anyway back to the video and you know what for some people this business idea will sound awesome but for others selling your own slogans or pictures onto t-shirts probably sounds super boring everyone is different so what i recommend that you do is that you head on over to google and that you use it to find lists of lots of free digital based business ideas and see which ones interest you the most and that is very important that you find a business idea that sounds fun because since you're starting this business for free you're gonna have to do everything yourself since you can't pay someone to hire them you can't hire someone to make t-shirt designs for you you're gonna have to actually design them yourself so pick a business you'll have fun doing so that you'll stay motivated through the work if you find it boring to edit youtube videos don't start a youtube channel you'll get bored demotivated and give up but if you enjoy walking dogs and you start a dog walking business you might make less money but you'll actually stick with it and actually make money because you will have fun doing it so then now we need to move on to step two follow free tutorials to start your business so now that you've chosen which business you'll create you need to actually create it and chances are for most people even if being an instacart shopper sounds fun or designing your own print on-demand t-shirt pictures sounds fun you probably don't know how to actually do it so that is why my friends youtube is amazing here you will find so many amazing tutorials that you can follow for free so if you want to open an instacart shopper account no worries just come here and you'll find a great free video tutorial that you can follow or if you want to design and create your own print-on-demand t-shirts guess what you will find on here you'll find a free video tutorial from me showing you how to design t-shirts for free with free designing apps but the funny thing is that i know that for some people they find the fact that there are these free youtube tutorials out there a little bit sass after all why would someone like me selling t-shirts bother to create a free tutorial video and then stick it up and not get paid for it well something to keep in mind is that we are heavily incentivized to create great tutorials and then upload them for free because even though they are free we do still make money from them i make around seven hundred to a thousand us dollars every single day from ads that are being played on top of my videos and so that's why you can get these incredible tutorials on here with extremely high quality information and not pay a cent for it because we do get paid effectively to make these tutorials even though it's free for you to watch them but if you do choose to watch youtube tutorials to learn your new business though i would just ask you to please be patient because inevitably the videos including this one that you are watching here right now will contain what i like to call entertaining fluff you see when you upload a youtube video they track whether people stay engaged throughout the whole video if people get bored halfway through then youtube recommends your videos less so all youtubers have to design our videos to be entertaining so hence the entertaining fluff throughout it whereas my paid video course can cut the fluff and just get straight to the video tutorials for those of us out there with limited time so as long as you don't expect the tutorials to be like a paid step-by-step course and don't mind watching that fluff then youtube can be a free way to learn your new business i've had lots of viewers just watch my youtube videos and start successful print-on-demand businesses congratulations everybody it is so wonderful to see your success so now it is time to move on to step three get free tools to launch and run your business because seriously whatever you need to create launch and run your new business 99.9 of the time there will be a free website or app out there that you can use to do it if you search for it so let's say for example that you have decided that what sounds fun to you is running your own content business through instagram but to do that you're going to need to be able to edit images that you find on the internet well instead of paying money for an expensive image app like adobe photoshop you can just go to google and search for free image editing apps and if you do that you'll find that actually there is a free app that works very similarly to photoshop called pixlr that you can use straight from within your internet browser and you don't even need to install any software or anything to use it for most of you watching this is probably even better to use honestly than photoshop even if you could afford to buy photoshop because well it's simpler and easier to use so whatever tools or apps your new business needs look for free versions have you decided to start a youtube channel well don't pay for adobe premiere instead go to google and search for free video editing apps now if you'd have done that you'd have discovered that there is this cool app here fx home express and do you want to create a new logo for your print-on-demand redbubble store well don't buy an expensive subscription to adobe illustrator instead go to google and look for free logo designing apps and if you've done that you'd have discovered one of my favorite apps canva they have a free version you can use that contains lots of logo templates you can select which one you like and then edit it with your store name and as i said canva is one of my all-time favorite tools ever i actually use canva to create t-shirt designs and slogans for my print-on-demand store now usually i do hire designers to make my pictures and slogans but if i ever want to make a simple one i'll just make it myself with canvas so whenever you hit a snag you want something to help you sell but just use google to find a free solution so let's say that you were this viewer that asked me this question sarah i have a picture but i want to make the background on it transparent how do i do that without paying for photoshop well if you would them my advice is rather than wait for me to answer that question to just assume that there's going to be a free tool or app that will help you do whatever you need to do on the internet and just do a google search for it and so if you'd gone and done a search you'd have discovered that there is this free tool on this website all you do is upload the image that you want to remove the background from and the app will do it for you and you can then download it with the transparent background boom no software download required and most importantly it's 100 free so then let's now move on to step four use free apps to create a usp so if you've never heard about this before a usp otherwise known as a unique selling proposition is when you have one thing that makes your business better than the competition i actually have a free video course on shopify which i'll link to in the video description below which is dedicated to helping you create one and as i say in this video course innovation not imitation is the key to business success if you just go out there and copy other businesses and products people won't buy from you instead they're just going to buy from the pre-existing business and products that already have lots of reviews and goodwill attached to them which is why it's crucial that you develop a unique selling proposition or usp for your new business however it doesn't mean that you have to be completely original pick mcdonald's when the mcdonald's brothers launched their burger joint they didn't invent burgers burgers were apparently invented in 1900 by a man called lewis lacer but what the mcdonald's brothers did do was they came up with ways to make burgers faster than the local burger joints and so that became the unique selling proposition people came to them to get their burgers faster than the competition and actually another way to create a usp is to take a pre-existing product in one market and then bring it to another market that doesn't currently have access to it and this is also something that mcdonald's did they went out there and launched stores all around the world in markets that didn't have fast food burgers before they didn't change their product they just brought their product into a market that didn't have it yet and so not all innovation involves literally reinventing the wheel usually innovation comes from taking pre-existing products and ideas and putting a new or shinier spin on it and so if you've decided for example to open your own dog walking business on wac you might brainstorm it the way you're going to set yourself apart from other dog walkers is that when you get matched to a new client you ask them if they're working on any training commands with your dogs and then when you take their dog for a walk you can work on those commands with them too your owners will be so impressed that they'll be inspired to leave you a great review and turn you into a repeat walker for their dog boom or you might have decided that what sounds fun to you is creating and selling print on demand products on redbubble like t-shirts and so by browsing on here you've noticed that a popular style is funny dictionary entries and so you decided that your unique selling proposition is that you're going to create more t-shirts in this popular style to fill this market for groups of people that don't have one of these styles of t-shirts made for them yet so by browsing around you might have discovered that no one has made a funny dictionary definition t-shirt about this yet and so as part of your usp what you'll do is you'll then go and make your own funny dictionary definition t-shirt and then design it in canva and upload it to redbubble and by doing this you have combined pre-existing things together to create something new that makes your t-shirt stand out from the competition and one of my favorite ways to brainstorm unique selling propositions is by creating mind maps there are lots of free apps out there that you can use to do this such as mind map and my meester try them both out for free and see which one you like the best my maps have been scientifically proven and shown to help us come up with creative new ideas because they help our brains form connections between seemingly different ideas and thoughts which albert einstein called combinatory play where you combine different subjects together to come up with new ideas whether they be unique selling propositions or coming up with the theory of relativity and so now it is time to move on to step five market and advertise your business for free so let me ask you a question what do you think would be easier opening up a lemonade stand on a deserted country road or opening up a lemonade stand on a busy suburban street can you guess which one is right if you do you will win 10 points you have five seconds to guess go alright time's up drum roll please the answer is the busy suburbian street of course did you guess right if so congratulations you won 10 points you can now feel free to go complain about the entertaining fluff video dance breaks in the comments section below but yes obviously if you want to start lemonade stand the quickest and cheapest way to get customers is to open it where lots of eager customers already are rather than open it in a deserted location if you wanted customers out here you'd have to advertise to people knew you were open and guess what advertising is expensive luckily if you've been following though you probably already noticed that i've been pushing you towards doing this already by opening up your business on a popular social media platform or on a popular website or popular app you'll be able to take advantage of the millions or potentially billions of people visiting these sites and so once you've picked your website what you want to do is to think about how people use these websites to locate products and content that they want and then use that to your advantage so for example on rebubble if you spend a bit of time on here you'll quickly discover the main way that people find the products that they buy on here is they'll do a search for what they want by using the search engine that has been built into the website and while as you can see when we search for this redbubble found thousands of related products however out of those it's chosen its favorite ones to list on the first page of search results what most customers do is they'll browse through the first page of search results and then pick their favorite picture or slogan from this list and buy that and so with this in mind what you now want to do is head on over to youtube and then use the free tutorial videos that you find on here that have been created by other successful redbubble sellers that explain what they do to have their products show up at the top of the redbubble search results you can take their tips and tricks and apply it to your own product listings so that when people search for the keywords related to your t-shirt design it is your t-shirt that they will find on the first page of search results and it's your t-shirt that they will buy yay and then that way you can take advantage of the enormous amounts of customers that are already coming here every day without having to pay a cent for advertising or marketing so then did this video inspire you to create your own free business if it did please hit subscribe and click the little notification bell for more great videos on setting up
