    I'd start by selling the car...there are race teams who don't have 800/week overhead on their car. Just browse the money making section and you'll find something you like.

    Well the payment is 400 a month but because i am 20 and its a muscle car insurance is nice and expensive. I have tried a bunch of those but a lot of people are doing the same thing so they dont work quite so well. I made a squidoo a couple days ago and i am going to try and make 40 or so lenses all making a little bit of money but havent gotten any traffic yet.

    Yeah the creativity is definitely important.

    No one is going to post an exact method because that would render it useless. You gotta take the various blue prints and run with them to completion.

    new domain and some hosting if you don't have any.

    Get some good quality content written and SEO the hell out of it. Start with basic monetiziation, then build a list and start selling to it.

    You'll earn hardly anything straight away, but after you'll be bringing in some serious cash.

    Should cost about $100 start up including articles, once thats done, outsource it and start another!

    Get a bunch of different niches. dating, weight loss, free stuff etc. do a tiny bit of keyword research. get a big list of keywords write the articles or get them outsourced.

    Then create the sites are the articles and different keywords.

    you can also pick a niche by finding a highly converting offer and getting keywords from it..

    Sell the car moron. Unless BHW is just supplemental income to pay for your cars, and you make good income elsewhere

    Which I certainly hope is the case

    Ok thanks. What would be a better idea as far as making more money. Promoting a clickbank product or have a CPA offer on the website. And my car is what makes me the most money during the summer so i cant do that.

    Quote of the day imo. $300 starting out is like going into a 5 star hotel and trying to book rooms, it aint gonna get you far. Starting with no money means you won't get lazy and you'll do the dirty work, you won't be under the illusion that because you invested money you're going to get a quick return. Hosting & domain is a good idea but if you don't have ideas then it's worthless to you atm.

    Good luck though.

    Im not being lazy but i know it takes money to make money. The $300 i was going to spend was for Craigslist PVA's but now craigslist have had some changes i need to find something else to do during the winter. Im not somebody that has no idea what to do. I know how to do SEO, Article Marketing and so on. I was just looking for some ideas and tips.

    It depends. Try one with a clickbank product and do one with a CPA offer. With CPA you will get a much better conversion rate but the payout will be a little less.

    So say you get $5 a lead. You are going to need to get 160 leads a week to make $800. Depending on the offer you will get a different conversion rate.

    Now take a click bank product. It sells for $49 and you get 60%
    So you make $30 per sale. So you need about 27 sales per week. Again depending on the offer you will have different conversion rates. Click bank is usually around 1%

    So you will need 2700 views on your website.

    Pick which one you think is more likely. It really depends on the offer. If you can get a high paying, high converting CPA offer, go for it! If get a high new product on CB that pays well go for it.

    Plus you could do a combination. Promote a CB product with related CPA offers on the sides.

    How does that work? Sorry, I'm nosy.

    To answer your question, here's what $300 can do:
    1.buy programs
    2.buy ideas (BH membership sites and ebooks)
    3.automate the grunt work by outsourcing or programs
    4.buy traffic (ppc or junk traffic, greatly depends on what you're doing)
    5.domains, hosting, proxies, blah blah blah

    So you gotta decide which ones you wanna combine together to make a plan of attack. If you're on a relatively tight budget, I would do number 2 :)p) and use the lower cost idea from it. That way, the only expense you'd have is the initial cost of the idea(s) and the little stuff needed for the ideas (#5)

    I have no idea if all that I just typed is worth reading or even makes sense, but whatever.

    By winning bracket races and events at the local drag strip.

    Thanks for all the ideas everyone. I am currently trying to promote a product from Clickbank on squidoo but i am still trying to get it indexed by google. Its only been about two days though.
