    Don't try CPS with only $100. It isn't enough to test. Start with CPA offers < $10 payout.

    Your more likely to lose those $100. Unless you really know what you are doing.

    Well it is a personal choice, but i can share with you my plan. I am working with different methods until i get $5,000. I hope i can get some experience before i lose them all. $100 is jut not enough. You can lose them with the first campaign and than what?

    You need to do a lot of tests and your budget is low. There is a chance you can multiply your money if your careful and lucky.

    Start with PPC. Make 2 or 3 campaigns for your targeting keyword. See which keyword fetches you good ROI. Its all about trial and error. You can't jump into a great working method.
    Same with media buying. Depends on your niche you may get good banner add for that budget. Just try. 1st makeup your mind what to go.
    If i were on your position i go for PPC. If its gaming/dating/then related niche i prefer going for facebook PPC.

    I am pretty sure you want to save your $100 for now unless you want to arbitrage some ads and make additional money. Right now PPC only works if you spend a few months researching, planning, developing, testing ads based on the psychology of your target audience.

    I just started media buys the other day and have burned though $25 in no time. There's no way in hell I'm gonna make money off of $100.

    Media buy's are pretty expensive and even if you have 5k or even 10k to use you can still lose that money pretty quickly if your not in this field of marketing.

    But if you know what your doing then go ahead and try it but you might need more than $100.

    Here's something most people don't think about. When doing PPC or media buys, you are not blowing thru money... You are buying data. The most critical thing you have to do is track; and track in detail. Find the sites/ads that are converting, dump the ones that aren't and go from there. Looking for a great (and dirt cheap) place to test ads and offers? Why not use some trash 1 cent traffic? Like these PTC sites or 2nd tier PPC like Infolinks or Ezanga. If you find something that works there (mainly email/zip submits) then scale up with media buys and other PPC nets as you already have an idea of what is working...

    I dont think you will be able to get into profit, with just 100$, you can do something better in 100$, start with cpa, find a long tail keyword, built a site, place cpa ads, get back links and rank it with 100$, or buy micro niche adsense sites, they also work good.

    $100? That's got to be a joke, surely. That'll barely cover some domains. I started with $100k. Unless you've got at least $10k don't even bother with paid advertising otherwise you're just going to blow your money. You need a significant amount of money so you can properly test and track. You need to be able to drop several thousand to test multiple landing pages/banners/ideas and get real data from that money spent that you can improve on. The skill in media buying is not being able to magically pick profitable campaigns from the start. The skill is knowing how to test, track and then make actionable changes based on that data that lead you into profitability.
