    I have $50 budget and a brand new blog on a celebrity, no traffic at the moment: how would you spend it? Hiring a blog/forum commenter, buying links, etc.?

    Let me clarify one thing: I have just finished designing the blog and published the first 5 articles (15 more to come soon).

    What would you do?

    I wouldn't spend it at all. Keep it. It's not that much and you couldn't really do anything with it just lose it. There are plenty of ways to get traffic to your site for free.

    Go to youtube and start commenting on other videos about that celebrity and get someone to like the comments to the top. You can also do the same on Facebook.

    Don't spend it. Keep it and get a job so you can invest in your business to see what works and what doesn't. There's no other way to go about it. Sure, you could spend it on an SEO service, but what if it doesn't work? You'll be back to square one. You need a STABLE source of income if you're going to take this internet marketing thing seriously.

    Wow that's a hard one. With that much money who knows. You could get started by getting yourself a huge corporate headquarters and a private jet. Heck you could even get yourself a corporate cruise ship.

    In fact, screw the blog. Just get a bunch of hookers and retire to your corporate cruise ship.


    Or..

    You could buy yourself a pizza and a nice bottle of wine and stay in to watch a movie.

    You should spend it on Facebook and build up fans to promote your blog

    Keep pumping out articles. And since your niche is about a certain celebrity, why not get social media involved like twitter for instance and follow all the celebrities followers this way you'll get traffic to your site

    $50 is not enough for generating enough traffic to make a good living.

    So you need to do SEO, forum marketing, blog marketing yourself.... :D

    $50 is not enough to generate good figure of traffic though you can spend it on creating quality content for your blog and create a FB page yourself. Put your efforts in generating traffic from FB. SEO at this cheap price is not preferable.

    TBH, it really depends on the competition in that niche. Because, for some niche, even $50 might be enough to push your site on page 1, while in some other competitive site, it will be useless to spend $50, as they may not even push it to the top 5 pages.
