    Hypothetical question, someone comes up to you and says they'll give you 5,000 dollars to do IM methods for one year. At the end of the year they'll ask for their 5k back, no interest. What would you do/invest in to maximize your return?

    Buy some fanpages across all niches and promote CPA, Clickbank, Mylikes.com and other shiet. You can also sell spots on the facebook pages.

    With $5k (and assuming you only get a year to pay it back) I'd probably develop a niche FB group and either become an affiliate of a major player in the niche or sell it to a major player in the niche.

    Blow it all on black.

    It really depends. There are lots of factors.

    Go to flippa, buy some establish website that already make money from adsense or any affiliate program. Make sure you do a lot of research before buying. Use half of your money on BST section to buy seo services or paid traffic to your website. -Just my 2 cents

    Probably use it to research & find a niche market to sell a product/service to. I would then gear a site around that product or service. With $5,000, I would use the money to first test the market with a G**gle survey to quantify a need. Once a need is established, the money would be used to get content written, videos produced, pay for hosting, domain, ssl certificate, phone, & virtual assistants (email/phone/customer support). If I do not know how to create a website or update a template, then money would be used for website design.

    With the rest of the money, I would set up Search Ads (ppc advertising) campaigns & yo*t*be ads, maybe some marketing on L*nked*n & F*ceb**k ads if the target customer can be found there. I would get it set up to run on very minimal time investment for me, but with a good return for the initial set up. You allow your VA's to act as customer support, and give them a lot of autonomy to make calls they feel are right for the company.

    Feel free to PM me for example websites where these fundamentals are implemented.

    A lot of people here I'm sure will say some software, a computer, some service...etc, but what you really need is school or some type of education...
    Learn design, coding, marketing fundamentals, and game theory.

    I'd recommend you either enroll in a local community college and take classes in the topics I listed above. Or grab yourself a lot of book and visual aids to help you learn.

    That $5k will be spent and gone sooner then you know it. But knowledge is with you for a lifetime and is worth 1000% it's weight in gold.

    I would write a series of Kindle books and promote them for free and keep the $5,000. :)

    I used to do that for other companies/individuals and get paid but since February I have just been writing my own and as of April am earning about $3000 per month and that rises by about $500-$1000 per month as you keep writing. You should get to $100,000 + by the end of the year and then I could give you the $5000 back!

    Take over a month to study IM and its parts, than you'll know.

    Edit : Don't fall for PMs asking for JVs.

    I would use the youtube + CPA method as the only investment needed is to buy domains and and hosting and its easy. I will only invest more if I see a particular niche is doing well to scale my earnings up (buy views, likes, accounts(if your lazy), professional videos, backlinks and social signals) . I think I would be able to make $10000 per month at least in 6-8 months with youtube + cpa and about $3000 investment.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your PM.

    Other than marketing your books, I would save your money on kindle courses most tell you how to create a book.

    I did not want to PM the answer - well I cannot yet anyway - as it my help others.

    You basically need to do 3 things
    1. find a popular niche (browse Amazons bestsellers)
    2. merge 2 related themes - people feel they get more value if you can answer 2 themes rather than 1. (see what was also bought)
    3. Author it with a pseudonym that sounds like a famous person from that niche - for example "How to write great pop songs" by P. McCartney

    oh and ensure you add a table of contents to you work!

    I would secure the deal first and get $5k from safe reccurring earnings. Like buying a website which relies on a solid income rather than a sick one.

    Once i get that income, i would scale it up using knowledges. At the end of the year, you give back the $5k which would be a success already and you got yourself a stream of income.

    Basically, i would avoid risks to not be able to pay back!

    Blow $2k on a really good ghostwriter who will give you in return two amazing products. use $500 to create graphics, sales letters, traffic, etc.

    Make a WSO and sell both products either separately or together

    Profit.

    After the sales/sites die down, sell on flippa for more profit.

    Rinse. Repeat.

    "IM" is a phrase in British English used in the North...

    Northerners are different to Southerners as they speak two dialects.

    "IM" would just mean him but shouted.

    This being the case i am in the north!
    I am a him
    Blow 5k on me and I will tell you a very expensive joke!

    lol

    PS send one dollar to happy dude etc
