    I have access to $200k. I want to get more into the affiliate world. I know a lot of people who do SEO for affiliate, but i wanna invest and make a return. So looking for more of a PPC model. I've already been testing but looking for any helpful advice.

    2 factors I am hoping for
    1. Easy ability to spend that full 200k in a month while still maintaining profit.
    2. Maintain a mild 10%+ ROI. (hopefully more)

    Any advice would be great. Open to any verticals and sources of traffic.

    RIP to OPs inbox. OP, start a business in something you're passionate about and won't mind doing for the long haul. 200k is more than enough to start almost anything.

    I have a few businesses. How do you think i got the 200k in the first place? I am in the process of testing new fields. Never hit the affiliate market thought it would be interesting. Just looking for a solid place to start and test cutting out any unnecessary testing and wasted money. I am no noob to spotting scam offers and such. Been in the black hat game for some time. I know what bullshit smells like lol.

    Probs getting inbox filled with scammers, but the easy way would be to build a team, invest in say... 20 ecommerce websites(buy from smoke brokers for example), have someone manage it while you learn the business. If just one of the 20 sites succeeds you'll be set with profit.

    and you really would give out the 200k to someone who post ... "hi brother i can make you so much money" ?????
    my advice .... save it and learn yourself how to make profit.

    If you want to do affiliate with PPC, than you can get into any vertical possible.

    One thing you have, that many don't is time to test.

    so instead of getting into already established niches/verticals with expensive kw, look for new, developing niches/sectors and then look for affiliate marketing in that area.

    That is pretty serious money to invest...

    First you need to invest in a proof of concept of the business model. So that when you spend x then y comes out in profit.

    Second, once you have a profitable business model you need to workout how to scale that. You are correct it is almost always paid traffic, but you are best scaling a bit at a time rather than putting all your money in one go, because scaling is never as simple as just putting money in, there are always other issues along the way.

    Just as crucially make sure you actually get paid, for the money you are investing you want to make sure you ultimately own the product. I would not invest $200k in advertising someone elses product.

    For example I have my own publishing business - me/my partners own the books - and I know that on one of the series it costs me $0.50 to acquire a subscriber, but that subscriber generates me $2 in revenue per issue.

    So I know that to scale that series I need to invest in more issues (revenue increases by $2 per subscriber per issue) and more subscribers and so that is the core way in which I invest.

    You should look to invest in a similar model and make sure you own the product you invest the bulk of your money into.

    Well, it's easy to invest and make money, but the question is. What are you willing to do?
    I know people in real investing in buying grounds, build houses on it and sell it with more then 40k profit. People love that for some reason, they like it because they will be the first owner etc. It depends on your country, not sure how much everything there is.

    You could make an mobile game app for less then 10k, a nice one. and promote it through social media and stuff. Investing of 15k, and see how much you get out. I'd suggest to NOT invest everything in once. Just try invest 10k first, 15k etc. till you see it returns.


    Also OP, you sounds smart, don't let people help investing you online. Search your own ways, and try it without help.

    Good luck with making $$$.
