    Hey guys, I im new around here but Ive been lurking for sometime so I just decided to post something. I was wondering what you guys had in mind for investing around $500 to $1000 in IM to get the ball rolling. From Blogs to YouTube to torrents, anything. I do realize you have to spend money to make money. Im in the process of plunking down some hard earned cash into some online venture.

    This is the wrong time to get started. Wait few days and let this penguin panda settle.

    Do you think it's worth spending that much on articles? I mean surely you'd be better off investing that money in good few high quality backlinks?

    Penguin only affects SEO, not PPC, or other traffic driving methods.

    It's not your last $500 is it? If you'll have a similar amount to invest monthly I'd work on building up a service based website and advertising it via PPC.

    You an go broke trying to hold the strings of ppc like adwords and yo still need to be good with getting a good service up and a sales page that gets the best conversion rate aafter lots of split tests. Of course after mastering adwords revenue becomes limitless but until then.....

    Make good research for niche. Buy domain, good hosting (fast), optimize your website, add a shit load of content (make 5-6 categories on that niche, each category should have over 10 articles, some less other more) then hire a SEO provider from BHW.

    Good luck

    Get some cracked tools and experiment. When you figure out how to rank,
    start paying for SEO services, or pay for your favourite tools.

    Don't spend money unless its necessary, and you know the money you spend
    will get you a return.

    (BEWARE - Anyone PM'ing you now... alot of scammers want to separate you and your money)

    I think you shouldn't rush to spend it all, and I'd also make more than 1 site in the beginning.

    I would suggest you to learn seo and stuffs about mns. Start making different niche sites and then rank them.

    You said you're new here but didn't mention if you're actually new to internet marketing. If that is the case, I suggest that you become frugal instead.

    Learn as much as the process as you can. Then take the plunge. Don't waste money on articles, if you can write. Marketing and promotion are critical too so don't forget that.

    First time you're doing something, you're likely to screw things up. If you just throw money and hope it works, then you only have one chance, unless you add more capital.

    MNS have been getting hit hard by each update lately, with people losing their entire "empires" and with that all their earnings. Definitely not something I'd recommend to someone just starting out. If he did all the work himself and left the SEO to a couple fiverr gigs per site (because honestly, that's all it takes to rank a MNS if you build it right, and do the proper competition research beforehand) then it would cost around $20 per site (assuming he provided his own content). You could build 24 of these (you'll need $10 for hosting). But if he got slapped like a month or two later then all that cash is gone, period. Not to mention leaving your revenue up to Google is never a good idea.

    Definitely agree with the guy above me though, you're probably going to make a lot of mistakes (and possibly lose a bit of cash) but if you stick with it you'll eventually start turning a profit.

    Tip: Stay away from the warrior forums. You'll find them eventually if you're looking to make money online, when you do, just hit the back button.

    Save yourself the $500. Do what all these other generic SEO services do.

    Buy a cheap VPS with SEO tools, like SE NUKE, Xrumer SB etc.

    Post some gigs on fiverr saying you will xrumer, SE Nuke or SB peoples sites, that will pay for the monthly VPS bill.

    Create a service and offer it to the black hat world saying you will create a Big pyramid of links, add some cool graphics for the sales page.

    You can only profit.
