    I've got my finger in several pots.

    But I have never had the "big score". Maybe it's not really a goal to shoot for. But I'm just curious.

    Knowing everything you know now, if you were a newbie again TODAY, and you had $10,000 dollars in your hand, what would you advise yourself to do with the money?

    :rolleyes: Thanks!

    don't invest anything yet, you can live off that money in your bank.

    spend a few months learning and trying new things and try to stick with one area.

    learning seo would be best, pick a niche, try to rank, and buy some seo services from bhw.

    no point dropping 10k when you don't know what you are doing.

    Thanks.

    Right i'm kinda saying that, if you had your CURRENT Know-How, and 10k, what would you invest it in.

    e.g. what Blackhat method, Whitehat method, ranking method, adsense, PPC, whatever, what method is showing promise in January 2011 that would warrent a 10k investment.

    I would...

    Setup a server(s) xrumer scrape box and SEnuke. Hire a staff of virtual assistants to do what I wanted ($300 a month each).

    I would set about conquering Serps with quality content to generate adsense cash and local clients.

    Really the only investment that you are going to make with 10k that has to do with Internet Marketing is to purchase a website that is already ranking and making a good amount of money.

    Other then that, I really agree with the recommendation above to live off of the money and learn how to work an 6 to 8 hour day devoted totally to SEO. With that money you can afford to purchase services, but really there is no magic method for 10k that will make you rich.

    Good Luck

    I would find a well searched, good paying offer ($50+). Build a decent site around it that is well SEO'd and nicely designed. Then I would start using the rest for off page SEO to build quality backlinks to it until I reached the top 3 in google.

    You should have plenty of money leftover from the $10K.

    I want to give you another idea. You can try to find a JV with someone involved in products launch, and try to split starting investiment and share profits.

    But this require good connections with IMs..

    Anyway, good luck ^^

    Thanks

    Regarding purchasing existing sites:

    Do you guys think I should just send my buddy to Flippa?

    Regarding "finding a find a well searched, good paying offer ($50+)":

    do you think the dude should just, say, spend some time in the clickbank marketplace and just keep lookin till something looks good and has low competition etc...?

    id probably invest it into a PPC campaign for a good affiliate product. with a good PPC campaign you could turn that $10,000 into $50,000 in a relatively short amount of time. but if you arent good at PPC, that would probably be a pretty bad idea

    You could try buying cheap stuff from China and selling it anywhere else.
    You'd probabily need to do a trip to China in order to find the best deals there.

    Either try to learn PPV/PPC traffic and build profitable campaigns or get to learn email marketing properly. Hit me up (via PM) if you need a hook up on the PPV/PPC advertising. I know a good place to learn. I would take it slow though

    With 10K I would probably find a website and flip it for profit. Either that or make a niche news website with related products and ad programs.

    Or if you are a newbie you should invest the $$$$ for a few months while you are learning techniques for yourself so you save $$$ by not paying someone else to do the "jobs". I sometimes still consider myself a noob, so I would take this approach - invest the funds with a reputable bank and let the interest build while I am learning skills etc. Although you could spend a little at first to get you started eg to buy xrumer/scrapebox/vps/dedi server etc.

    I bought once a site @DP which made money... but it was a scam, traffic was bought to manipulate the stats... after the purchase the traffic, the seller and my 1000 usd were gone.

    with 10k USD I would invest it in seo software, server and content and make my own money making sites... its not that hard.
