This is the first on my list. You can start graphics design without money as long as you’ve previously acquired the skill and mastered it. And probably own a laptop.

Even if you’re yet to master the art of graphic designing, you can learn more about it on YouTube, by watching helpful videos or better still, you can take a free course on Udemy, Coursera, or check out the trial period of Graphics design training in Shaw Academy.

All these training are totally and completely free of charge. You’ll only be dedicating your time and staid attitude towards it.

Now, after learning and mastering the concept of graphic designing, it is time to turn it into a profitable business.

How do you start graphic design business without money?

All you need do is simply to create awareness for yourself. Let people know you exist solely as a professional and reliable graphic designer.

One who delivers exciting, unique and mouthwatering designs and does so in a relatively shorter period of time.

You can create a gig on as many freelancing platforms as possible, and start making hundreds of dollars every single week.

Like I said there’s no startup money required to do this, just time and seriousness and oh! a laptop.

As odd as this might sound to you, you can start a repair business without money. All you need do is run a subterranean survey of appliances, materials, or any substance at all that’s so vivacious to everyday human life.

Then weigh the difference in cost of purchasing a brand new material with respect to the cost of repairing.

If the difference is reasonably high then that means that people will opt for repair more instead of choosing to buy a new one.

So take out time to learn how to repair the said device and start marketing yourself.
