    Sorry - I meant, if you were to consider all of those factors (Longevity, Automation, Scalability, and Fast profitability), then... where would you spend your money?

    CL? PPC? PPV? Offline -> Online? Etc. etc.

    CL of course but you dont need 30k to start with it!

    Actually If I would have 30k now I wouldn't do CL or any ''method'' but do something way better- which of course I aint gonna tell/

    I would personally educate myself a little more and do some cutting edge shit research that wouldnt get surpassed in years to come (hopefully). But of course, that is me...

    Classic approach PPC to product still rocks the shit of anything else, from my perspective. Correct me if I am wrong, of course.

    This is an easy one..........

    As I have embarked on just such a journey only I used 10 k to ostart!

    Do lots of outsourcing and what i do is kinda like the 30 day challenge crossed with the underachiever method......and on the back end I combine affilate offers from places like clickbank and cpa offers from hydra, affilate.com and copeac...........


    You can have 5-10 good sites up in 3-5 weeks and be making your money back pretty damn fast.

    This is much less low maintenance than going strictly cpa stuff of ppv..

    I had to learn this the hard way though..

    I have actually bought all of this crap below

    MAss control2
    nitro blueprint
    pay perclick formula 1 and 2
    pay per view formula 1 and 2
    Jim Edwards minisite creator 2
    +all the tools seo elite, keyword elite, ppv dominator, market samurai, xsite pro 1 and 2 , dreamweaver, photoshop , cover action, and much much more

    the big issue with cpa and ppv is that you have to constantly monitor your campaigns for profitability and make sure your affiliate network doesnt pull the offer when your not paying attention.

    Because real business takes more money than 30k USD.

    Why not learn some PPC, I'm not going to say its EASY, but I do know fro experience that if you do it smart, you can make a GREAT return on your investment...

    If you have no idea how to be smart when you use PPC, well then, I suggest not touching it...

    Agreed.
    Grab the 10/10 adwords ebook, market samurai, look over and get a few ideas off good landing pages. (you can find the ebook and market samurai free in downloads section)

    Either that or sell and get people to promote your own product or service. 30k is enough for a backend, design, merchant account, applications to CPA networks.

    IM is as real as it gets. As long as you treat it as a business, it is a business. It`s one of the most powerful models around.

    When you think of it we're talking about selling on the internet. And every sector of the ecommerce side grows exponentially every year. Offline will become online. It's just a matter of time.

    As for the 30k start up. Well, it`s more than enough to create a good product, leverage some affiliates, learn PPC and make shit loads of money by setting up a continuity model. As to which part of it I would invest, it would be scalability & automation.

    What would you say the timeframe is for launching a product/starting a network?

    Are there other good readily available resources besides CPAT for launching a product on a CPA network?

    What are P2P bots? Anything to do with PPI?

    How many of the above business models would still be viable if you were to work mainly on your business rather than in your business (at your IM job)?

    What if you were to throw the following considerations into the mix:

    -Outsourced/hands-off business
    -No/short learning curve
    -Low risk

    Does that change your thoughts at all?
