    Some may remember me from this thread back in the days if u wanna call it that way

    www blackhatworld com/seo/made-92-in-two-days-and-now.922097/

    I was getting lazy, had other stuff to do but then kinda got back into it, made idk around 3-4k$ with quite a bit of work so nothing was easy or handed out to me like that.

    Now getting a bit lazy again, I simply don't know why, probably looking for an easier way to make some money..

    Spent a bit, now having 2k$ left over, willing to spend into something that might yield a great ROI over time!


    Any ideas?

    It's pretty hard finding decent earning sites these days, a lot of them being sold are just on the verge of crashing.

    You can tell when that's the case. Earnings dropping. Evident bad links.

    But there are legit ones out there.

    I would agree @SpoonFeeder in saying that any type of roi isn't easy, nor is it fast.

    No investment is safe but there's big money to be made with crypto in the future.

    i thought that too for many years. then i stopped being a pussy and took the plunge. only wish i did it sooner.
    but this is an IM forum not btc. OP why don't you hire 1-2 freelancers to do the work for you. or commission a bot.

    yeah but it could also go horribly wrong be honest. It's just a huge gamble.

    $2k is not investment money. A great "over time" ROI is 10-30%.

    You aren't going to make 10x you rmoney. When people invest $50k into a business and turn it into a $10mil/year business, it's not actually accurate to say that they got an ROI from that $50k. They got an ROI from their time.

    ROI off money is something you invest in without time, otherwise you're talking money + time. You'll make HUGE ROis off your own time, but if you're lazy, you're not going to have much luck there.

    Even having $200k to invest is pretty small. You're going to make maybe $20k/year if you can find a good deal. $30k to $40k if you find an amazing deal. You could invest that $200k in an early stage startup and it might multiply, but that's just gambling. Angel investors don't do that. They invest in maybe 10-20 startups and they calculate the average ROI because they know 80% won't bring much of a return if any.

    That $2k is essentially useless. It's so low it's not even worth considering in your plans for a business.

    Here's your actual realistic options for it. Right now, your number 1 asset and the thing that CAN give you an ROI of 1000000x is YOU. With that in mind..

    1) Use it to survive if you your income is low. Put it aside in a savings account and keep it for peace of mind to keep your stress low.

    2) If your income is comfortable and survival isn't an issue, either put it in your business account so you have a buffer if your cashflow is down, or get yourself some equipment. New comfortable office chair, good desk, some really good pads/pens etc, or a new laptop with a big monitor if you don't have those. Extra monitors and a fast laptop will hugely increase your productivity.

    You speak to ANY guy who's worth at least $5-10mil and he will tell you the same thing. No one who understands money will tell you to invest $2k. $2k in the bank is a lot more powerful at this stage for you than trying to "invest" it. Don't underestimate peace of mind. Smart business people keep cash in the bank. No liquid = a dead business, no matter how much it's earning, and from a personal standpoint not having anything in reserve is silly. Having savings as an entrepreneur is not the same as the guy who thinks his 40 year savings plan will make him rich. Your savings is there to keep your stress low and be used in emergencies to keep your business afloat, and at bigger levels for good opportunities. No point being worth $100mil if you don't have access to cash for new deals. Cash is king :p(Content is not king ;)

    I can tell you what I've been doing for the last 16 years that works.

    It is a bit of grind when you first start out, but it becomes much easier and it's highly scalable.

    I've been monetizing 3rd party data (email) using PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers.

    If you're not familiar with 3rd party data, it's email data that the users have given permission to receive messages from third parties. You get the opt-in record for all users and it's 100% can-spam compliant.

    I either purchase the data or I get it through rev-share deals. Rev-share (revenue sharing) is data that you get for $0 upfront cost and you split the revenue generated from sending it, with the data provider.

    The data is targeted based on specific vertical (niche) that the users have shown an interest in or requested more information about. So everything starts with the data, in that, based on the vertical that you are getting data for, you then send a relevant offer.

    I mainly get data that is targeted to verticals for PPL offers. This is because lead generation offers do not require a credit card or for the user to purchase anything to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher than offers that require a sale to be made.

    I favor offers that have a make, get or save money benefit to them. This is what has overall worked best for me and tends to have the greatest amount of mass appeal (will be of interest to a very large general audience). So the potential to generate high volume exists and they are fairly easy to cross promote on the back-end.

    The bulk of the offers that I promote pay $20-$40 per lead. I also promote offers that pay more and less, but the amount of the payout is not the key deciding factor. How well an offer converts can be just as important, if not more important. For example, you could have an offer that only pays $9. However, if it converts at 2X or better compared to a $20 offer, then it will perform about the same or possibly even better. You could also have an offer that pays $90, but if it converts poorly, it may not even be worth promoting it.

    Bottom line, it is far easier to get someone to fill out a short form than it is to get them to take out their credit card and make a purchase. So why struggle trying to make sales, when you can just provide free info that users want / need and get paid well doing it.

    Some of the verticals that I have done extremely well with are: insurance, education, debt, credit, mortgage, loans, assistance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc...

    So for example, if I'm getting auto insurance data, I then send an auto insurance offer. If I'm getting education data, then I send an education offer, etc, etc... Then after a certain amount of time, I then cross promote the offers to fully monetize the data.

    Important note: 3rd party data will rarely be as responsive as a highly targeted opt-in list you build yourself. But it really doesn't matter. This is because you are getting the data much much cheaper and it is highly scalable compared to building your own list. The way that you make it work is to always be segmenting your opens / clickers - removing the unresponsive user. That way over time you are building smaller, but much more responsive lists. Essentially you are converting the data from quantity to quality.

    Basically, I monetize the data using PPL offers because they offer the path of least resistance to generating conversion and converting the data to cash producing assets.

    Obviously, there is far more to it, but done right it can be extremely profitable. Everyone that I know that is in the business and knows what they are doing, for the most part, does 6-7 figures. While that may sound like a huge range, much comes down to one's abilities to scale and to cost effectively build/manage the infrastructure needed to scale.

    Monetizing data isn't for everyone, but it's something to think about.
