    Ok, I know $100 really isn't a lot. But I want to try and get something setup that gives me some form of stable income stream, even if it isn't that much.

    So if you had $100 what would you invest it into, or what do you think would be the best thing to invest it into?

    My tip is to go to Amazon or Staples' website and find yourself a nice, comfortable chair for $100 or under. I'm serious. Comfort is the key to sitting behind the computer. You don't need money to make money, no matter what the experts say.

    :lmao: is that an investment or a luxury? Is the chair going to appreciate in value? Clearly you're starting off on the right foot around here :rolleyes:

    Good Luck

    Lol, as nice as the chair would be, as I am using a wooden dining table chair at the moment haha, I think I will give it a miss, really want to put this money into something that could help get me on my way, I know it really isn't a lot lol, but surely there is something good I could put it into.

    I was thinking of putting it into some sort of Ebay business, as I hear you can make a fair bit from dropshipping etc, just not sure if that would be the best option lol or if it is in fact as easy as people say it is >,<

    It's a luxury that leads to an increase in workmanship, thusly leading to an increase in cashflow, which leads to an increase in the ability to invest. More helpful in the long run than anything else I can think of. Thanks for the insult though.

    i will tell you what i was doing some years ago with $100, my hobby is photography so i had some amount of nice pictures in my computer, i purchased a domain and hosting and put there all my best pictures along with some description and some basic how to's for photography, some photography quotes, little unique articles, wallpapers from my photos and basic photography stuff, you know.. etc about 70 unique pages

    in the first 2 months i promoted the website and it was starting to get a few hundreds visitors per day, then i monetized with adsense, meantime the website was recommended online little but constant without any promotion work from my part, and since then it makes around $150 per month, every month

    you can start making some offline content that you are likely to talk about or which you know a lot about it, fast and unique, and then buy one dot com and a cheap but good hosting, yearly, this should not be more than $70 per year, then you can promote your website little but constant, and in the same time develop your website content from what you already know or you will start to learn about it..

    this is an option for you, i know it doesn't sound blackhat at all..,otherwise you can try some bh methods that don't require any money, with $100 you can do nothing much..
    or if you're good at online poker...

    good luck!

    If you are scare of investing the money and loosing it just invest it in some proxie sites.They don't make you rich but they will give you a good ROI, just get .info domains from godaddy and find a proxy site that has most of those proxy toplists and just get an autosubmitter and submit your site. Thats what i did when i had a few bucks. Use C.P.A.L.E.A.D IN THE PROXIFIED SITES.

    For $100 I can tell you what to do with your $100.

    No, if you have to ask what to invest it in then it means that $100 means a lot to you at this point in time and you want joy out of it. So spend half on chocolate and the other half on tissue for wiping those tears, for those long nights of spamming without any results, why me, why me... investment = keeping sane on the job

    That's like asking what the best restaurant is for $100... not everyone is going to pick the uber nice asian fusion restaurant, even though it's smack in the middle of the nicest suburb in hollywood, simply because everyone doesn't like asian fusion cuisine. It WAY to broad of a question.

    You're basically telling people "sell me your piece of shit product and I will buy it just because you told me i should". Not a wise idea.

    It's been my experience that the best investment I have made is in my education. And I don't mean textbook learning like a college course on economics that is taught by a professor who has never even owned a business or invested... I'm talking about going and talking to your accountant and attorney, attending seminars taught by the best in your industry, books written by people who have the real world education - the streets smarts - that comes from owning a business and investing.

    Essentially, the best investment you can make is an investment in yourself.

    Get a footing into what you're wanting to do first, only after you've figured out EXACTLY what you're going to do to make money, you invest that money.

    Also, I have to agree, the office chair may actually help. If you're sitting on a hard chair for long periods of time you can get hemroids and if you're not, then you're not making money. (at least when you're starting out.)

    I like your reply though I am still perplexed about the chair. For instance, noone asked the ol chap does he own a lap top or a regular table computer,not to mention a comfy chair already,lol. Oh, and what about his daily schedule? He might can just go to starbucks during the day and wait on that master chair thats gonna earn him hella loot. Instead he can use starbucks:) . If he want a chair I am sure they are dime a dozen on craigslist. Probably could get one for free from someone who is moving if he keep his eyes open.

    Moving on....the $100 investment.
    Why not do your research to see what sells on ebay and find some widget type products to buy locally and sell them that is cheaper than what they can sell them for on ebay? You can even do it in your local area and forget ebay all together!

    Domains would be the best investment if you know your game plan.
