    I was reading a random old thread with suggestions for tools to buy if you had $100 to spare and wanted to grow something.

    However the thread was 3 years old and things have changed since then. So I wonder, if you had to (hypothetically) start your journey over again, and you had $100 to spare, what tool(s) would you buy to build your empire?

    I'm curious to see what your opinions are on the subject.

    I'll throw mine out there to start the conversation and would suggest an instagram bot. Followliker just got itself out of hot water with its customers so it qualifies for this list. There are new ones that offer many of Followliker's features in earlier stages of development. But regardless of choice, I would stick my money there. Probably get a cheaper bot. Then with the left over money start a site for $20.

    Haha maybe I wasn't thinking big enough when I asked that.... I like that one (even though I'm not the most advanced coder or software dev). Being the source from day one is important.

    Honestly, I'd create a Porn website(easy niche to explore). When I doubled that money, would start some project with bigger personal interest.
    Having the revenues from that website, could support the new project.
    Only for start.
    The goal is to self sustain my projects. With that sorted, little by little grow the projects without a rush, enjoying.

    That's all I need for my life.

    Isn't there enough competition for porn sites? How would you get traffic?

    yeah, but there's enough demand.
    Using a niche website, with proper SEO it's not that difficult cause most of the people are lazy, while searching on Google will get you.
    It's quite easy to get organic traffic for this type of niches.
    If you think necessary, there's always the possibility of using Tumblr to promote it.

    Thats a tough one. There are a lot of great programs for under a 100. I would probably get ZP, it would allow me to create lots of accounts in various places on auto-pilot. I could then possibly sell them for a small profit. As I built up some money, I could look into other bigger things. Or I would buy a traffic bot+some proxies, and sell my services to idiots on fiverr lol

    Not a bad way to go... Although it becomes tempting to get into unfavorable activities while creating those and putting content up lol

    That's the thing. There's SO MANY great tools/programs for that price range. And the fiver thing lol. I'm sitting here wondering how many people take advantage of fiver on here. Not sure if I missed that boat or if it ever sailed
