    I am looking to start something online. Not sure what yet but something that will generate an income and that will possibly grow with time.

    I have money to invest into things to get things going.

    What is the best thing I can do with my money and make it's not wasted??

    Ideas please.

    Some simpler methods are:
    1. Freelancing on fiverr, upwork
    2. Promoting CPA offers on social media
    3. Youtube Product review channels
    4. Amazon review sites

    Slightly less but still n00b friendly methods:
    5. Promoting CPC offers with landing pages
    6. Selling things like teeshirts, hats and phone cases on shopify
    7. Building an email list etc.

    Personally I focus on 1-4 with a little of 5. Over the course of this year I am selling off my sites and focusing on paid traffic. I don't plan on quiting my day job for a another few months. Honestly, the only way to waste money is by not making smart risks because you will stay where you are.

    A smart risk is one you have most of the control over. For example, taking out a second mortgage to fund a brick and mortar and capital intensive business on your first try is stupid.

    Saving a few hundred bucks a month from a day job is not risky at all when you think about it. Just keep experimenting. Actually it is more risky to not try new things in this case.

    From here on out, do a little research on the methods I mentioned, and any others that come to you. Believe me the money is out there. Just keep try things until the value you offer gets some traction.

    You've been here seven years, use dat searchbar!

    Thanks for the replies guys appreciated. I was thinking about The CPC idea, my problem is getting traffic to sites. I am useless at this and always seem to fail at this part when it comes to IM. If I could get past that I'd have plenty of great ideas what I've been thinking to do and help me succeed.

    Well, if you’re hoping that more traffic to your site will also result in more sales, you’ll need to target high "Commercial Intent Keywords" as part of your paid search strategies. Yes, competition for these search terms can be fierce (and expensive), but the payoffs can be worth it.
