    Hey guys hope you can help me real quick.

    I have 0 experience with domains etc but I know how to program and I am not an idiot.

    But I dont have time as I work 50h/week in a SEO agency.

    What I can do: Basic Content, Programming
    What I can't do: Invest a lot of time, Affiliate etc

    What is the best type of plug & play website I can buy given my budget?

    What monthly income can I reasonably expect?


    Many thanks for all tipps.

    Cheers-

    Well if you can do programming create a product, make a nice sales page and then start investing money into ads. Create more than one layout for your sales page and do tests on what sells the best, after doing that track everything and calculate ROI...

    That's what might get you running for sure.

    You should expect to lose every cent of that 500-900 dollars.

    - I'm not saying you are an idiot... but certainly, there is room for debate after asking these questions. There really is no such thing as a plug and play website. Every website takes time, research, and continued work such as ongoing SEO and content creation to get visitors. If I were you I wouldn't spend a dime on anything. Register a blogspot blog and write some content to get some visitors, throw on some adsense ads and see how things work to get your feet wet. If you go spending that money without a plan, you will lost every penny very quickly.


    Good luck

    I was thinking of a site that already makes some money with adsense or something.

    I can certainly do a little SEO and create additional content. But I certainly cant do more as I have no time.

    Ok 500$ is too little.

    What do I need to invest to get a legit site that already makes money from adsense? How much can I make a month and for what investment?

    Basically what ROI can I expect from buying sites which already generate some kind of income, via adsense for example?

    I may be able to spend more, like 3k but was thinking I want to start small.

    Im already doing that on a different project, but I was thinking if there was a possibility to buy an existing website that makes money already vs building one from scratch, which im doing anyway.

    I told people earlier I worked as a fraud investigator for a number of years.

    I think you're 1000% full of this.

    You ask questions that lead us to believe that you don't know what you're doing, but you're also trying to act like a venture capitalist with a fat bank roll? Come on man...

    How about 30,000 on a website? I don't think that's enough, maybe 300k?

    Anyone who is making money with their adsense site will never ever want to sell it because it's the easiest money you will ever make in your life. No one will make an adsense site that gets a strong ROI for you, unless you pay an insane amount of money.

    1. I never said I was an investigator.

    2. 3k is my upper limit for risky things, if thats hard to belive for you thats saying a lot about your situation ;) Basically I used to make 2k$ as a dishwasher, but then again it depends where you live I guess.

    3. I see that it wont work with adsense, but there must be some way to invest money and make money?
    What kind of website do I need to buy? What I am able to do now is find expired domains with some links and maybe restore them and sell some links. But there probably are smarter ideas?

    Im not even looking for high gains. Just looking for something that isnt totally time consuming or something.

    Also no need to be a dick about this. I didnt plan to come over arrogant. Not sure where you take this from, as there ios nothing spectacular about what im saying about myself.

    by your name and laidback 'i want to earn without working' attitude i can tell you're romanian. i am too :) i made my first k last month from online work with different methods here and i know for sure no romanian kid has 3k laying around to invest... if you had that kind of money you'd be out clubbing on a saturday night but hey... maybe i'm wrong... either way... start reading and working rather than waiting for something to fall in your lap or just hope to throw some money in a whole and wait for it to multiply

    Yes, you're correct about one thing... I said I was a fraud investigator.

    You fit the personality profile of a scammer.

    If you want to go buy a website, check out sites here for sale and/or go to flippa.

    Whether you're committing fraud or not, you are acting like someone who wishes to commit fraud.

    Ahh yes you are a fraud investigator. ok. Thats why you are on BHW all day and try to make money from SB blasts or whatever youre offering, didnt really bother checking.

    Then you literally cant believe people have 3k$ lol.

    I dont want to say that im super clean. But I am certainly no scammer. Unless you see asking for free advice as scamming.

    Basically youre ridiculous and should stop embaressing yourself now.

    "Must be delusional if he claims to own 3000$" lol pls quit it now. xD

    Cant be bothered to calculate euro to dollars now, but yes, here you can make 1400 euro a month for 40h/week washing dishes in a hotel or restaurant. The minimum wadge, by law, is 1400 euro, you have to pay some tax, but if you work some night shifts or overtime you can make that money.

    And if you can do something more then washing dishes, which is pretty easy, obviously you can make a lot more.

    I am NOT being critical of washing dishes, I misunderstood your $2k to mean per month. I stand corrected.
    and yes, we have quality members here who clean floors and still get motivated to do IM to increase their earnings,
    absolutely nothing wrong with that AT ALL.

    2k per month, that is correct.

    I get it, many people here are from countries where you cant make any money at all with manual labour. Im from such a country myself. But believe it or not in europe you can make 2k us $ a month washing dishes and similar.
