    Hey guys,

    I have some money over.
    do you know some safe ways to invest 1,5k for safe ROI ?!

    I do not really want to invest in seo as i am seeing a lot of guys get punished and deindexed even authority & white hat sites so i am kinda scared of doing that, lol.

    even though you say you're kinda scared, i think the safest thing is a nice white hat authority site.
    why?
    it's cheap, you can write everything yourself if you want. or you can pay people.
    you monetize it and do your best.
    if you fail, as in not rank, or not make enougn money or whatever the reason, you have an asset that you can sell in order to make your money back.

    much better than losing all that money in a PPC campaign or something like that.

    well if you buy 20 sites made for you with no Seo

    $150 * 20 = $3000

    20 Domains * $10 = $200
    VPS = $60 a month

    that would bring you decent income if you worked at the Seo for 6 months or so

    but budget is bit larger than the one you stated.

    Problem is if you have too few a sites then you go up and down as the niche becomes popular
    or not.

    Anyway that's what I would want as my starting budget.

    GoodLuck

    Hi,

    I don't know where these guys get their prices. however Authority Sites would be your best investment because you do the work yourself.

    Get the $37 discount link for Traffic Travis here on BHW for your keyword research.

    Domains - Clean your cookies and Google "Godaddy Coupon". You will always get the $4.95 link.
    You can also get one each ($1.50 domain) Code FLOWERS and a ($0.99 domain) Code INDY500

    VPS from Web Hosting Talk should be $25 or so with a coupon code. MAke sure its CPanel and MANAGED

    every investment has some sort of risk and I would not consider any investment safe. If you want a "safe" way to invest, just put your money with your bank.

    There is no "no risk" investments, only if you put it in a savings account but your ROI will be insanely low.

    Buy gold for cheap when the price is low and then sell when it is high....

    Do you do a lot of IM right now? If you do, or if you have been thinking of scaling up, I'd just invest into websites.

    I'm with you on the SEO thing, I've shifted to building lists. If you have a niche that you're interested in, put up a site and start building a list. Use some of your money to (slowly) start doing ad swaps in your niche (paying other people to mail for you, to help drive more subscribers over).

    Have a great free offer to incentivize the opt-in and then make sure you have something to sell them immediately. Either your own product or affiliate products (that are good).

    Slowly build your list using various methods, but spending a little cash to get others to mail can really start your list off right. Build a relationship with the folks on there (don't just go for the quick buck), and you'll be able to consistently sell them stuff for months/years to come.

    Home Page:
    One authority site in a big enough niche to be able to market several product groups
    (Camping is one I left a few years ago - I sold as an affiliate holidays, tents, caravans, guides, books, trailers, first aid stuff..... lots)

    Took 5 months to rank properly. Cost me next to nothing - but a lot of time. Sold it last year to someone on this forum for $22,000. WHich at the time was about 9 months revenue (18 months is the norm I'm told) but I just lost interest in it.

    But as an idea it's rock solid. Build 2 or 3 real authority sites (think in terms of quarter of a million words unique before you can call a site that) and your quids in for life if you know what to write and how to montize.

    Like Lensman says - do your KW research first. Hosting and domains will set you back a few dollars a month, maybe get your first 10,000 words written for you by pro's (so budget $150 -$250 for that)

    Patience and constant writing and linking will win the day. Link to every post you make. Not "mad agressive" linking, but sensible linking and a bit of syndication.
    Use a bit of the cash to buy tools (get scrapebox if you haven't already) and stick at it.

    I reckon 90% fail in IM due to lack of patience or commitment.

    1. Start a private SEO blog network.

    2. Sell your SEO services to local businesses or private members here.

    The end. :)
