    If you had $5,000 to invest in advertising (purely for profit), what would you invest in?

    I personally would go with media buying + product creation (or promotion).

    @ OP what do you mean by purely for profit? Without investing any money you can't assume it would be purely for profit. Particularly if you go with media buys it could be risky as things could go terribly wrong and there are higher chances that you won't even get back what you invest.

    I wouldn't blow away 5K without testing stuff. I personally would rather digg in to PPV or PPC platforms and build like 50-100 campaigns and weed out from non working campaigns and put the rest of the money in to working ones. Media buying is a higher side of the game and 5K is tiny amount to even try it out.

    I would make 5 strong micronische sites , put adsense on them and buy some good seor services offered here for each one of them. You will begin to earn some lil cash in the beggining but after a while your sites will rock.

    Product creation typically refers to creating an informational type product like a WSO or a Clickbank product. The better the information, the more useful it is for someone the better it will sell. It could even be a recipe for a chocolate chip cookie, it could be how to buy products from Garage sales.

    There are two ways to go about creating products:
    1. Create a product about something you know a lot about, something you are an expert in and are very passionate about.
    2. Identify an under served audience and feed them a product.

    A media buy is buying a banner on a website. The easiest way outside of adsense are sites like buysellads.com.

    Product creation is sweet because if you are a clickbank vendor, you can have other IM'ers selling your product for you. Then you can be working on your next product when that one fizzles.

    The other advantage of creating a digital product is that it will get stolen and posted for free on forums. Embed the .pdf with affiliate links to several different products, companies, etc, this way when it does get shared, you are still banking. Sometimes product creators make more off the stolen products then the purchased one.

    Just think if someone created a great product, it was stolen and shared here on the forum, you would have 1000's of the best internet marketers using your affiliate link. CHA-CHING.

    Good Luck

    I would build up an ecommerce website. Buy some stock in a really profitable niche (product niche) and then double the prices and ship those b*st*rds.. Test a couple of product areas with $1K stock, then develop those.

    ==> Then go into multi-platform (ebay, amazon, aliexpress, etc). If you pick the right "B2B" style products, you will be getting orders of 1000 pieces with $3000 net profit and you can dropship those, just need a few in stock to send out as samples.

    Hi,

    I would produce kindle ebooks.

    I started doing this for myself in February (before that I used to be paid to do it for other people/businesses)

    By April this was generating about $3,000 per month.

    Dependant on the work you do this should increase by about $500 - $1000 per month, so by the end of the year you should be getting about $100,000 +
