    Ok, guys, what should i do with my $300 to make a small short term profit and perhaps a more long term one.




    Was thinking of using part of it to set up one of those mafia broweser games, lots of people doing those and hard to advertise though..... any other ideas?

    use the money to build a foundation ... a strong foundation is always needed. whatever you do spent it wisely ... 300bucks are gone faster then you can link with you eye

    I would reinvest, stocks are now bad to invest;), so I would put it in some projects like building new sites, doing some affiliate marketing etc. which can make you more money if you read a little bit here. The methods depending on your niche, you can spend the money on Google Adwords, Domain Hosting, Link or Traffic buying, Ebay and so on....

    That's your choice there are hundreds of things you can with do it. Maybe you could invest it in adwords and CPA. Spend it wisely.

    Hmmm, is a network of http proxys a good way to go? anyone tried this?

    Also, where do you find products?


    ((I find it rediculously hard to think of good niche's that have not already been dominated.))

    Ummmm.... If i have no product to sell, I.E. if i have not created a product or have not got a product at significantly cheaper prices than any other normal people it's going to be nigh on imposible to make a profit over ebay.

    Well like someone suggested earlier you might want to look at affiliate marketing using articles. I don't know your level of experience so i wouldn't suggest adwords, as it is a killer if you have no experience there.

    I had $150 a while back and decided to pay some dude $3 for one article (i was selling clickbank health product). I then took some time to prepare a landing page for the product ( again i didn't have much money so i just used blogger but stripped all the extras from it).

    I hope this is making sense? Anyway i submitted these articles to Ezine linking to my landing page and till date i still see sales from coming from that particular move. I have made my money back several times over...but remember its not gonna have me retire but it still feels good to open my click bank account and see sales from this investment i did long ago.

    Good luck

    i sell wholesale tooth whitening products. they sell very well on ebay. as a favor to my distributors, i stay off of ebay so i dont blow them out of the water with my pricing. you're more than welcome to contact me about the products if you are interested. this goes to anyone else as well. i can get you started for much less than $300, so you'll have plenty left over to pay for ebay fees and shit like that.

    @arvo: I like the sound of your offer but i feel this would be jumping into the deep end. something i'm scared to do. ='[

    @yuppy: Link please? sounds good.

    This is a really good starting steps.

    1. buy hosting domain and create a couple blogs
    2. Buy some sort of content generating auto-blogging software (caffina*edconte*t, senuk*e, etc etc)
    3. Read up on the blogging section of this forum, lots of technique to learn, and ways you can get traffic to these blogs
    4. Repeat steps 1~3

    Look for good software in this forum and purchase them; it should fall right within your target budget of 300 bucks

    I do proxies and they are still out of season. Business will not be picking up for months. Plus there is a bit of a learning curve. You have to figure out how to beat the censor ware companies and keep off leaches and unprofitable traffic.

    There are easier ways to make money than proxies that do not require as much constant maintenance.

    Everyone has there own ways of doing things but if it were me I'd either put the money in my pocket, read this forum over and over, then go on the piss and recharge my batteries. Then read this forum over and over.

    OR

    You could invest it into something on here you know nothing about to increase your ability to make some money. I'd look to the execs threads, there's some very interesting gear here!
