    Hi,

    I'm new to the forum as a member but I have been reading it for a while(I hope I am posting in the right place). 2 years ago I started trying to make some extra money online but something part time, that would not take me away too much from the daily duties.

    My first attempt was Affiliate Marketing because that was advertised on any "How to make money online" forums. I started with a blogger blog because I had no money and I tried posting some affiliate links, write some articles but, as expected, it didn't work. Almost a year later, I opened a PayPal account and added some money that bought me a domain, hosting and there I am with a landing page about some woodwork book. I used some AdWords like services to drive traffic and in 3 months I managed to earn 88$ in profit. I had to close it down afterwards because of some reasons...

    I took a break of about a year and last week I managed, out of nowhere, to resell a Fiverr gig (some 3d logo intro for a video that I bought for 60$) for 300$ , 240$ profit in just 3 days. It was the most unexpected thing, everything happened a little too fast.:D

    Anyways, long story short, I have 240$ and I am looking to reinvest it and scale up and i was looking for some ideas from people who did it before, where could I reinvest this (Keep in mind, I am a big time noob :))

    I can give you my paypal to put $240 in. You can take a day off from beer, no big deal.

    Op, why don't you try to resell more fiverr gigs the same way you managed to resell this?

    This is a cute attempt at a white knight, but we all know that someone looking to scale up $240 is not making much money.

    Welcome to the real world, skippy.

    People who use the word cute in these situations are just terrible at life.

    Maybe some real advice from me is to open a website and start selling that service with higher margin. 5x is good so you can pay for some basic seo and use facebook as starting point for cheap marketing if done properly.

    resell more fiver gigs, services from BHW, or other services (facebook likes, twitter followers, etc..). Scale it up by driving more traffic to your website. the first 200$ are the hardest to make, spend them smartly.

    It sounds like you've made the $240 quite coincidentally, but it definitely has potential. A lot of youtubers, be it gamers or pranksters use these 3D logo flashy intro's, so you could perhaps target them with your services.

    If you want to scale it up the same way you made it, then make a website offering the services that you're reselling and promote it.
