A 1000(ish) Ways to Make Money Online Without Skills or Experience

Okay, okay, okay, I realise that the title is a bit click-baity as there are there aren’t 1000 ways to make money online below and you do need various levels of skills and experience. However, the point of the title is that there are many jobs online and you don’t need to be a rocket surgeon to do them. So, read on to find out 1000(ish) ways to make money online without skills or experience.

1000 Ways to Make Money Online

So, if you are less than 80 years old and you want to earn money online, then here are the jobs that I recommend to start with. Below you will find a table with the name of the job, what skills you need, how difficult it is, and anything else I kind think of that might be useful.

Oh, and by the way, obviously I haven’t tried all these jobs. If I have the personal experience of a job, I’ll definitely let you know. If I haven’t, I’ll do likewise. The best rule of thumb here is to do your research. You shouldn’t make a decision based on the views of one person anyway.

Column Titles Explained


I’m hoping this doesn’t need any explanation. If it does, I suggest you bookmark this page and come back to it after you have finished Primary School. The title has a link that will take you to an overview below the table.

Difficulty Level

Okay, this is a bit subjective. If you are indeed 80 years old and you find it difficult to turn on a computer, you’re probably not reading this anyway and many of the jobs below will be fairly difficult no matter what. However, if you’re young and savvy, most of these should not be too above your pay-grade.

Experience Level

This is not how much experience you need to start but how much experience to make money. Many of these jobs don’t require a great deal of experience and as the excellent Richard Branson said,

Earnings Potential

All the jobs will earn you more than pocket money. In fact, all of them will earn you quite a good full-time income. However, most of them will earn you very little, at least to begin with. You’re going to need to study, hustle, and work. But let’s be honest, that’s true of life in general. If you’re 30, still living in your parents’ basement, and you are broke, it’s probably because you’re a lazy arse. Get studying, hustling and working.

My Recommendation

This is my recommendation for each job. Obviously, if the job was a pile of crap, it wouldn’t be on the list. However, there are jobs that are worth having a go at immediately which you can start earning with pretty quickly too. And there are jobs that are good but will take you a long time to get any traction.

Further Reading

And this is a link to further reading about the topic. It could be a category, a post, a course on Udemy, or whatever. Click the link to find out more information or move onto the next job. So, the table’s below. Check it out and click on the job title to read more.

Finally, this will be a work in progress, of course. If it’s not complete, bookmark the page and come back later. Hopefully, there will be more.
