    0 money to spend?
    Perhaps, you should just have to set up a free blog or a squidoo lens. That way you don't have to invest money, just your time.

    1. Sign up for Tumblr (tumblr.com). It's a free blogging platform that is very SEO.
    2. Create some good content. At least 10 articles. Be sure to create one or two very interesting ones.
    3. Generate some links to your blog via forums, article marketing, etc.
    4. Link your affiliate products from your articles, or monetize it in some other way.
    5. Social Bookmark your interesting articles using SocialMarker.com

    Assuming your articles are good you should receive at least a few hundred hits for the next few days. Even badly optimized affiliate marketing sites generate about 2% conversion rate, so you should see at least a few payments within a few days.

    Hope this helps.

    Promote ClickBank products using Squidoo lenses. This costs you $0 and you can get started straight away.

    Take a look at this Squidoo lens for more details http://www.squidoo.com/internet-make-money

    What SeanBlue says.

    I spend NO money. I use google adsense and am a member of a couple of affiliate networks whose ads are on my sites.

    I write articles....have my links in my signature on the forums I belong to...I'm active on several forums...I've written for e-how

    If you want to earn some quick money you might want to try GPT sites.....you can earn good money but you'll need to wait until the end of a month for cashout and, typically, another month for actual payment....but you can make a couple of hundred $ a month without spending a penny.

    If you can't afford $10 to register a domain and a couple more bucks a month for shared hosting I'm not sure how you're going to make anything online. Might be better to consider getting a job instead.

    Yes, Squidoo is effective for driving traffic to websites and also when used for selling or promoting directly from a lens itself.

    if you have internet then you have some money, go pawn something, whatever...seriously hosting is like $8/mo with hostgator (theres an even cheaper package than that i think) and a domain can be had for like $6 or cheaper with the right coupon codes on godaddy. There is success to be had with the free blogging services but nothing compared to having your own domain that is optimized correctly. But you must remember you will have failures, so perhaps you should get your feet wet with the free blog services.

    If I didn't have any money and with what I know now, I would sign up for to get a Google blogger account. That free right!

    Research one or two products with not a lot of competition. Don't try niches like hosting, mobile phones etc....Try something that you can research quickly and create a blog about it.

    Put some adsense ads on the blog. Sign up for shareasale. I've been with them and have made some good money over the years. There are small niches that are bringing in a couple hundred to thousands a month.

    Find all of the social networking sites like Digg, MySpace, etc.....Create a free account for all of them and promote and write about your blog and the products you want people to know about. Keep doing this for months because it will not happen overnight.

    Your site will eventually get organic traffic through links and the content you put out.

    Someone out there looking will buy through your site and or click on an adsense ads looking for a product you promote.

    If you have time, use it wisely and start with one site. Once you get that first sale, it will feel like a breathe of fresh air. This is will the motivation factor rolls through your veins and you start to feel encouraged to write and promote more.

    Soon 1 sale will lead to more per month and your question about how to make money without any will be a thing of the past!

    Yes, it is hard work but you can do it if you put your mind to it.

    No one will knock on your door and give you all the answers, you need to create the door and let opportunity knock!

    It's 2009, make it happen now!

    PS: If you read many of the post here DP, you should be fine. There is so much to learn for free!
