    I am moving this thread from the Lounge -

    I have been reading BHW for about the past 3 weeks and have been experimenting. I was trying to work with 0 startup funds (and I have actually made $12 on maxbounty, but the min payout is $50), but its taking just a bit too long for my liking.

    I just received $50 from some side work (not IM related) and I want to invest it into IM, but I would like some suggestions on what to spend it on.

    Here are my options (as I see them).

    1. I could get roughly 5 domains without hosting and just redirect to a click bank product's landing page or CPA landing page.
    2. I could get 1k gmail accounts for $15 and try to monetize CL, as well as getting some domains for redirect to a CB product and maybe hosting for landing pages. If I do CL, is it better to post to get leads or scrape emails and mass email?
    3. I could get some domains and some hosting and make my own landing pages (although I think this would be more useful if I had my own CB product I was marketing, which is cost prohibitive right now since the CB vendor fee alone is $50 plus a domain and hosting would be around $65 total)

    The things I am trying right now:
    Building a small twitter army trying to monetize with CPA offers (which got me the $12 I spoke of earlier)
    Testing youtube to monetize some CPA offers
    Auto blog with crappy domain trying to monetize with adsense but have only made $0.05 so I don't have much hope for it.
    I have 3 myspace apps that are waiting for approval and I intend to add Adsense, CPA, and/or CB banners to monetize (any suggestion on which of the 3 is the best option?)

    Also, do you think its easier to monetize with CPA offers that return >$20 per sale/lead or with CB products?

    One thing I would like to do (when I have built up the funds) is to create a info product for clickbank and sell it.

    Do you think I am on the right track? Any suggestions? Anything I haven't thought of?

    Thanks,

    Lumien

    Wow.. You are a hard worker. I have some luck at cb lat week, but this week my sale was down. Don't know what's wrong. Been looking another method to try on.

    Congrad for your earning.

    Good luck

    I think I am starting to get shaved badly on my twitter cpa/zip submits. I see that I am getting clicks but no converts for the past few days.

    It sucks cause thats the only money I was actually making. At this rate I will never reach my min payout.
