    Hi, here is my situation.


    I have $5 USD to spend and make a very small test in this business. I know that I need a lot more money to get serious, but as I said, I just need to get into and learn a little about this.


    So, the question here is, you know some ad networks that accept deposits from $5 USD? I think that porn will work, but I don't know, what do you think?


    I'm really lost in this, so, any advice, I'll really appreciate it.


    Thank you guys :)

    $5 is not sufficient to get started in media buying.

    Even at the very very lowest end of the scale you will need to credit your account with at least $10, and it won't be a viable test.

    For $5, go to Fiverr, SEOClerks and see if you can buy a banner for a day on somebodies site.

    I'm from Mexico, I can put more money, It's just that I have those $5 in one debit card and I think that I could start in this but I see that I can't :p

    How much do you recommend me to start and what niche?

    Thank you :)

    You're in the perfect position. Couldn't get better: Get a 9-5 and spend two to three months on the forum learning

    Wait until you have $1,000 + knowledge to invest

    ^Just my 2 cents

    I found BuySellAds a good site to get started on but remember Media Buying is all about testing campaigns and you will probably burn through your money to begin with.
    If you just want to test buying a banner then AdHitz is the cheapest you will probably find.
    I suggest doing as much research as you can before spending anything, it can be lucrative but not for noobs IMO.
    These are just a few BASIC sites to get you started:
    https://www.buysellads.com/advertisers
    http://buysiteads.com/page/buy-ads
    http://www.adhitz.com/en/Advertisers
    http://www.adsharemarket.com/
    http://web.blogads.com/
    Read through the whole Media Buying Section on BHW before you do anything, and look out for the threads by wasted.

    Unfortunately, the amount you are able to spend is just too low. For you to be able to understand how the system works you need to try different banners, carriers, operators, etc. You are probably going to fail a lot until you find the right niche that makes you earn some money.

    I recommend you save more cash to start running campaigns and testing, especially if you're still trying to figure the business.
