    right now i have an investor that will invest $30k into me for my internet marketing adventures. ive done some CPC/CPV in the past, usually broke even, done the whole SEO game and pushing CPA offers.

    i do own scrapebox, BHSeos.com backlinker, Xrumer, Link Wheel Bandit, and various other tools.

    i am thinking of going strait into CPC/CPV game, since i have done it in the past and with this much capital i can easily start at trafficvance cuz i will have the $1k minimum deposit.

    i have an EWA, Peerfly, Ads4Dough, and various other CPA company memberships, so my quesiton to u is, is CPC/CPV the right way to provided i watch my stats closely and keep tweaking?

    $30k is a lot of bones from one investor. Subscribing for my own curiosity...

    Well you can surely buy big sites from DP and do some work on them so they earn much more, and sell it on Flippa, you'll be in great profit if done correctly.

    Anyways if you have no experience, and since you are asking this thread, you are actually not sure, if I were you, I would deny his offer for his own good, it's better than losing his 30k.

    If you dont have a plan dont take the money. If you have some success in the past but not doing more then break even. Have you told the investor that?

    the investor is my uncle who is doing extremely well and he just wants to get me started in my IM ventures.

    i feel like having a big capital like $30k i could do some serious income with CPC/CPV if i monitor it correctly now that i have the budget to test out different markets. right now im earning around $2k a month but that just covers my expenses so tihs will def light a big fire under my ass. i know what im doing, i just wanted some opinions before i jump into the cpc/cpv game.

    If you can't make $3k profitable with CPC/CPV, $30k won't help you. Do a test, and if it doesn't work out, find something less risky.

    If your trying to get a $30,000 investment from somebody and you've got to post on a online forum for suggestions on what to invest it in, you clearly shouldn't be taking the money in the first place. If you knew what you were doing with the money, to make this person money back, then you'd know what to do, or at least have a rough idea on what your going to do with their money. To be honest, with that sort of money there is so much you could do, I'd be sat here all day.

    this is the best part, i dont have to return the investment and he knows all the risks that i could lose everything.

    i do know what i want to do, and that is CPV/CPC and i will say this again, i was just getting some last minute recommendations from u guys if i was overlooking something, and like some1 just said, i will test it out, and if it doesnt work, i will move onto something else. with $30k i wont blow it alll on CPC/CPV obviously, i will test so many different markets and see what sticks the best and gets the best return on investment.

    I will try to give my opinion on this. In any line of business an investment, especially a substantial one, is a great way to make more money more quickly. However if you are not already making money it is a great way to lose more money more quickly. That's why nobody would invest or give you a loan without a solid game plan.

    In my opinion you should start doing things and making money on a smaller scale, then you'll see where some extra cash could help you ramp things up. Until then it sounds like you don't even have a vague idea of what the investment would be for? That's setting yourself up to fail.

    Don't just start dumping this cash that your generous family member gave you. Figure out what works, start small, and get bigger as you can manage.

    Also your point:
    With IM I think you will find that the majority of things take a lot of time before you realize results. If you go hopping around from one thing to the other you will probably not turn a profit. Things need to be fine tuned and you need to get your traffic, rankings, whatever it is. This can take months and in this time you will quite possibly not be seeing any money, maybe a few bucks a day or odd sales here and there, but nothing substantial.

    when your uncle is doing well, why dont he invite you in some of his secrets instead of spending 30k ? I think its better to know how to fish, then take some fishes.

    can every1 put aside the investment factor and just throw some ideas at me instead? and my uncle is doing well cuz he owns about 4 pharmacys and is a pharmacist. there is no secrets lol

    ive done my research with CPV/CPC, ive done CPA offers in the past, and ive made money, but i only made small amounts because i didnt have much money to test with all the expenses ive had in my life.

    If you made profit with less money, than there is no reason not to make with more. The difference between $1 and $10 is only one zero. So, just add 0 to everything that you were doing when you had less money.

    I think everyone is too caught up on the investment side. Its not so much an investment rather than an uncle trying to help.

    Anyway.. How about getting some MNS up, doing some SEO and flipping them, or even more keeping them and building up your sites so you can produce a steady income over the long run..

    You already know CPC/CPV is risky, watch it closely. If you want, PM me for some other suggestions.

    Admittedly, I don't post a lot; if I'm going to say something I want to say something meaningful (which I also don't always do...)

    thanks bhaval, sounds good to me. im thinkiing of using half the money for MNS and the other half for CPC/CPV. in your opinion, what is the best way in obtaining these MNS? doing the research myself or buying some off DP or something?

    I guess it depends on your ability to find good niche keywords and be able to create a site and rank them..

    There are services available on blackhatworld that offer the whole package per site. (Some including SEO and others without, obviously SEO sites cost a bit more). They would do the keyword research, give you a list of niches/keywords with available domains and all you provide is the hosting.

    You would obviously have to maintain the sites by adding articles regularly and maintaining SEO rank.

    yeah im actually pretty good with SEO, and got many sites to first page rankings, but not in competive niches until like 6 months so it would be good for MNS's. thanks for your advice, i will def try some MNS too.
