    I've earned around $735 working on Fiverr and I only have around $390 to invest right now . Let's just say that I stopped offering the service I used to offer on fiverr because I don't like it anymore.

    So what other ways can I earn by investing right now ?

    These are in my mind -

    Adsense , Amazon, CPA, Affiliate offers. Problem- I don't have a website and making one will take some time and money. Then there is SEO or paid traffic, maintenance etc.

    Outsourcing services from BHW. Problem- I don't have leads, don't know where to find them for free. Again Fb ads or PPC will take money.

    Domain or Website flipping . Problem - Risky for Newbies like me.


    I think for the long term, making my own authority site or Blog will be the best. Then I can promote CPA or Affiliate offers along with adsense or amazon.

    I've read tons of info here on BHW, Wso's , guides etc but it's just now I have what you call information overload.

    It's just I have this habit of collecting ebooks and read them and I want to take action but I'm just afraid that I will lose my money.

    I'm just 19 and what I've earned on fiverr , I've earned without investing anything over a period of 6 months.

    I would certainly spend it all on a WSO.

    There are going to be problems whichever path you take. Nothing is easy.

    I would not recommend trying to flip domains/websites. You will buy some worthless domains and/or websites (that you think are gold) and your bankroll will be gone.

    I would not recommend going the paid advertising route. If you have no idea what you're doing, you will blow your entire bankroll on a campaign with a horrible (or non-existent) ROI.

    With $390, no experience, and the fact that you're posting in BHW kept in mind, I'd say your best bet is making a website geared towards SEO. The $390 is enough to build it out completely (even if you pay for content), and SEO is one of the things where you can invest time (and additional funds down the line) to get results.

    You can't do that with paid ads or domain flipping - once you run out of money there, you're stuck.

    Cheers

    Jared

    Buy a yacht and the rest of the money would be invested in opening a bar.

    I'd also suggest making a website. Find yourself a niche ( probably something you do as a hobby or something that interests you) buy a domain, hosting, make or get a logo from fiverr, do some research on what products to promote and then just buy the content with the rest of the money.

    Obviously go for a long term website. It will take some time to set up and to rank but when all the work is done, you will be making good $$ on autopilot. You will have to post on the site only a few times a week.
    Create your own Brand site and then establish it.

    If I had just $390 to invest, I would get back to work and focus on earning money. Like, now. No time to waste.

    I'd use that money to give away a high quality item, once the traffic pours in you can monetize it how you wish.

    I would probably use it to take a holiday to Mars or something like that.

    Let me know if you are looking for a nude barman with some serious cocktail making skills.

    Depends... are you looking for quick cash or long term investment?

    Right now, short domain names (numerics and letters) are selling like hot cakes.

    I'd get 10 Micro Niche Sites for $100 from here and get started with some SEO.
    Or TeeSpring + Facebook. Or Instagram.
    You can do a lot of things.

    $390 can help you getting your own custom designed website with high quality content and some SEO services if you buy from the right places and then you can put some more articles by yourself and monetize it with Adsense.

    Or there are a lot of methods being shared in the Money Making section which require a lot lesser money than $390 so you can try them out one by one and see which one works best for you!

    Or the last option, why not keep delivering the service at Fiverr to keep making more money while you invest the remaining into something else?

    390$ is nothing, you have to work to earn more and then, when you will have 10K for investing, you can be calm and invest in SEO

    390$ is not huge amount of mount of money for IM
    don't waste your time work hard to earn more.. then you can invest it

    you can invest it in social media marketing it will not give you 100 ROI even in few months if you are not skilled marketer.
    if you are ready to invest this money for learning and growing in internet marketing, then it's good idea

    Very interesting this, I recently read an article about a guy making 35 millions with this, the plan would be making t-shirts and selling through FB ads I guess... I am definitely interested in it, did you tried? I have the same question of the OP, I have a small budget and I would like to invest it in something for the future.
