    Currently have a $300 budget.

    I could get a VA monthly but I'm thinking I could do a lot more with this money.

    Anyone got any ideas or recommendations?

    Programs I should purchase? Services that's a must?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Do you already have a site? Do you already have a niche and have you done proper keyword research? If not then you should invest in solid keyword research.

    There are so many factors involved when estimating a budget. Each website can vary depending on the topic and how competitive the keywords are. If you know what you are doing with adwords a $300 monthly budget can get you some very good traffic.

    One suggestion for you is to know what your visitor is worth. For example, if you are selling a product for $10.00 and your conversion rate is 1% [1 sale out of every 100 visitors]in order to break even the max CPC for a keyword is .10 cents. Each visitor is worth .10 so you wouldn't want to bid any higher than this for keywords.

    Another suggestion is before you spend too much money try doing a test campaign. It might cost you $20 to $50 but worth it in the long run.

    I've done some keyword research, but what are some tools to do keyword research? I just use google keyword tool + domain samurai right now? If there's something better I'd like to know about it.

    My keywords are pretty competitive and some of the more competitive keywords I know are impossible to get but it's still possible to rank in a lot of profitable ones.

    It's an affiliate site and there's adsense in there as well.

    Adwords wouldn't be possible, too expensive for sure, probably like $2-4/click.

    First you should do some major SEO on your website.
    Then start building backlinks with the keyword on the anchor to increase the SERPS for that keyword, this is the cheapest and the most easy to convert traffic you will get.

    Start by writing (or pay someone for writing) some articles, spin then with The Best Spinner (avaiable to download for free at the downloads forum) and send (or pay someone to get them sent) to the top article directories. For this I recommend buying an AMR service from one of the reputed members here at bhw.

    Buy a bookmarking service for your articles to get them indexed.

    Buy some scrapebox blasts to your articles, this way you avoid getting too many links to your site directly and you will still benefit from the link juice.

    You should spend somewhere between 30 - 50 $ for this, and I'm sure it will give you great results (if you do everything right).
