    On a another forum i have been selling my graphic design service's. Im a novice in photoshop but the people on the other forum seem to like my work, sold a few pieces and made around $40. Looking to invest it if possible so i can start earning money.


    I understand $40 is next to nothing but its all i got right now and i plan to get the most out of it. So my question to you is what would you do with $40?

    Look forward to your answers. :D

    Buy some webhosting and a domain name, do some research beforehand, pick a niche, find some good keywords and then start building your first website.

    Buy Domain.
    Cheap web hosting.
    (search for coupon /offers etc)

    learn CPA or start writing orignal content or create a semi auto blog.
    keep the rest of the monies to buy backlinks.

    If you are serious about making a blog with orignal content donot forget to do keyword research before buying domain.

    First look at what you can offer regarding your graphic services.

    Note down what you can do

    ie. Ebook designs, websites, web graphics etc...

    Research other peoples prices on the things you can provide

    ie, Ebook graphic $30, web design $299 etc....

    Then use your $40 to either list a sales thread on either of following forums

    Warrior forum
    Blackhatworld

    Generate sales offering very low introductory prices use that money to invest further on marketing your services on other fourms.

    Create a website with profits you earn for design services, build up a social marketing offering design services facebook page, twitter, linked in etc...

    You then if you work hard will be running your own business full time from just a $40 investment.

    Use your profits to invest into your business until your sustaining a good income, whilst waiting for clients brush up on design skills by using free web training by searching through google.

    Good luck.

    You can also build a nice website for your graphic design service, kinda like a portfolio.
    Should help you get more orders at least.

    The thing is im quite new to Photoshop, using it around 2 weeks. Decided id make some thread layouts, people liked it and i managed to sell a few copies. I don't think its something i could do for an income due to the fact there are many more talented GFX artists out there.

    You will register on Fiverr and on Ebay

    All services on Fiverr cost only 5$
    Then search for some favorite gig on Fiverr (Like SEO pyramid 10000 backlinks) and create an ebay offer with this service, but use your own description. Sell it for 15$...

    get it? :)

    Does that really work? What are the risk's of doing something like that as well? Surely there must be some or everyone would doing it as it sounds like easy cash to me.

    I'd say expand your graphic service. Buy a domain (with your name/company name or something), build a personal site with a portfolio and get bigger clients.

    Read the offline marketing section for ideas and tips on landing clients.

    Once you have enough money to buy any tool, then you can invest in websites (outsource creation and backlinking) that can generate you auto-pilot income for the rest of their lives.
