    Hey, this is my first post. I've been in the IM world for the past 2 years, mostly reading and trying to understand as much as I could about all sorts of methods to make a living online. I have some experience with PPC (Adwords and Facebook Ads) and affiliate marketing. For now I don't have a steady stream of income, and I am thinking of getting something moving.

    So what would you do with $2000 and some PPC experience?

    I would suggest you to do this.

    Find a method that makes you $1-$3/day minimum, or so ... after you are sure it works, invest in bots,proxies, and other things that are needed.

    Let's say you make $2/hour from a method manually (lot of methods out here from where you can make $2/day in like 1 hour of manual work).
    Let's say you are doing this 24 hrs a day, which means $2*24= $48 (working 24 hrs a day, manually. Of course it's not possible, but you can automate this).
    Let's say now that you automate this with proxies, and bots, and you make let's say 5 X what you do normally ($2) which means 5*$24=$120/day. Which is absolutly possible.

    Now, 30 X $120 = $3.6k. You get your investment back in less then 1 month.

    Hope you get the ideea. Rise and Repeat

    buy 200 domains at $10 each, setup some kind of content generator, put on a dedicated server I have laying around and rake in dough.

    profit from adsense,link sales,linking to money sites,popunders, whatever.

    that's what I would do with $2k at least.

    OP, ignore the people above except xuallan. They don't know what they are talking about.

    If I was you, I wouldn't invest it all, I would look for a method that suits me and invest in the tools needed. For example if you want to build Adsense sites then you need: Domain, Hosting, Adsense account, Scrapebox to find potential backlinking goldmines and proxies, or if you want to play the Youtube CPA/affiliate game then you need to outsource video creation and buy views, ratings and comments.

    You get the idea. Learn one thing and have an arsenal of tools at your disposal to help you in your journey.

    there are plenty of ways to invest if you have a budget. But from my own experiences, 2 ways often work out well are:

    -start with mini project that can actually earn money regardless of how much they can earn. Then scale them up by applying techniques, secret sauce, or your own tweaks (this part totally not easy at all). low on risk and easy on budget, but take times to start earning some serious money.

    -get a job that can help you maintain and increase the budget. Spend 1 to 3 months just read, read, read, read, read and read everything on this forum or any ebooks you think that are useful. Research, then plan on how you would like to invest the money. If you research and plan properly, this method will give you back more than you expect but risk is high.

    I saw many questions like this one in other threads
    the answers will be all different, somebody will say to invest in bots, others in tools
    it all depends in what you need, for example when I started I could use 2k but I just use 100 bucks, so it all depend in your project

    build 10 sites that make $2-5 dollars per day = $60 - $150 per day on auto pilot.

    $150 to set up each site (good content + good SEO + good design/customization) x 10 = $1500 investment.

    And spend $500 on some other method you always wanted to test.

    After 3-6 months you can sell the sites for $20K and do it again on a little bigger scale and maybe put the cash into other stuff too.

    Yes, you don't want to invest the entire 2k in one single method like some others here have said. No matter how good a method might be, it might not necessairly work for you. So, you want to have some diversity and by that I mean, get a few adsense sites going, do some research on bestseller products in Amazon and get a few review sites going. You can outsource most of this work work as well.

    Since you said you had PPC experience, adsense, amazon and maybe some kind of membership site would be right up your speed.

    Do you use this method? If you do, how is it going for you?
