    I was having a discussion with a friend of mine at work earlier.He has an interest in IM work but doesn't want to put in the money it would take to do so.So he asked me a question for which I have no answer.

    If you had only $10 dollars to your name and could pick any two fiverr gigs which would you choose to set you on the path to turn $10 into a $1000 ?

    I'm stumped but I need to put more thought into it. I thought it would be a fun exercise for this forum.

    I wouldn't buy a fiverr Gig.. I'd buy 1 domain (around $10), free hosting on it - Get wordpress installation (also free) do manual plugins (Yoast, XML Sitemaps - Also free), do manual link building and do clickbank affiliates with it.
    Then film myself with a webcam/my phone doing reviews for various products on ClickBank, upload them to YouTube, do some manual link building for that and write a load of content for the description etc..
    I'd also then write content for article directories, make powerpoints with Google Docs & upload them to SlideShare with affiliate links, I'd build a Pinterest account to share my videos, sites and other social medias (e.g. SlideShare) to generate more traffic and also sign-up to a number of related services (.e.g SEO sites - SEOmoz, SEOBook etc..) using free accots or trial accounts, comment on the content they produce to build safe backlinks (e.g. 180 comments on posts by SEOmoz for a backlink from the site) - Work on creating weekly content for my free site and make a video a day and spread it acrosss multiple youtube channels.

    Cost = $10
    Return = a lot more then $10.

    I would say that probably yes, I started with $0 with 0 cents and I make more than $1000 per month. But dont spend it on Fiverr

    don't spend it on fiverr...start with free methods, then invest the $10 in a domain...a good site will get you returning visitors..a good site who gets it's own domain after a few weeks gets trust from the visitors, from google and from everyone.. => $1000+

    That's about what I started with, 1 domain and first 3 months of hosting free. You really need to jump in and learn stuff and what works and what doesn't and what you need before you start spending money on anything IMO. Whether it be fiverr gigs, bots, PPC budget or anything. I didn't spend any money on IM for probably at least 6 months.

    You can make money in IM without investing anything. I only say that because you said this ...

    If he wants to put in the work, starting with researching what IM is to begin with, then researching methods, then implementing them, he can make money with IM without investing a penny.

    The fiverr example makes no sense though. It won't make him anything, he has nothing to promote.

    I started with $10 that I borrowed from my 13 year old brother. Bought a domain. And turned it into $22,000 the first year. It just requires time and the strive to make any form of progress every single day. If buying fiverr gigs alone multiplied your money it would be well known.

    $10 on creating some traffic to a paid article content directory paying based on cpm. Would return more than $10,000 if done right.

    My whole IM career is built upon not even $10.
    I've never invested a single penny of my "own" money into this, started off with manual promotion and blogspots, reinvested the money and scaled things up.
    Eventually earnings were big enough to reinvest AND actually keep a big portion of it, and I've still yet to use a single cent of my irl earnings on IM ( Although thousands have been spent :D )

    just with a couple of $0.99 .info domains which equals around $2, i have turned those into $4000+ :) but it did take quite a bit of time.. first few months were very slow, then gradually my daily earnings started increasing :) . Its just that if one has money to invest reaching these figures wouldnt take much time

    you don't need 10$ to make money , you can do that fo free !
    Start with making some youtube videos na monetize with cpa or affiliate links and build some links to the vidoes
    you can also build a free blogger blog , add pictures and then pin the blog posts and add your link in the comment !

    Fiverr? No.
    Domain + HostGator + WP? Yes.

    I'm sure it's possible​ without a domain, but its not very practical.
