    What would you do if you have nothing but $100 in your paypal account?

    How would YOU choose to invest this $$$ for profitable returns online. :rolleyes:

    Both BH and WH methods are welcome.

    best,

    If you are newbie then buy DIM membership.
    some other solutions:
    article arbitrage on AC.
    domain flipping(very low margin and risky)
    ewhoring(no investment)
    try some free methods posted here.

    guys please read the OP carefully.

    I've asked how would "YOU" invest it for profitable returns.

    Real222on ..I agree with your "Invest your time and knowledge NOT money" sounds good. How would YOU invest time and knowledge and not money? :)

    cheers,

    id keep it there for upcoming things that are needed like hosting and domains.

    in the meantime read up methods instead of asking for them. start with articles or ewhoring if ur still planless after u read urself thru this nice forum.

    good luck!

    Keep it for harder times. Set some site up at a free host and if your idea works get some hosting and a domain for it.

    That doesn't make any sense. I have a lot more than $100, and I'm not investing it anywhere right now. So...I wouldn't, unless I saw something new that looked worthy of investment.

    I would keep selling articles. Selling the occasional eBook on DP. And most importantly, building up my long-term money makers, like adsense blogs and revenue-sharing content sites, referrals, etc. Then spend the rest of my time just reading and learning new shit, occasionally trying something new.

    But honestly, I'm lazy. As long as I'm making $100+/day, I tend to putz around and not really put in 100% into increasing my earnings. I'm one of those people that's into IM so I can make an above-average income from my laptop, while everyone else is slaving away for their boss in an office somewhere. I'm not really looking to become a hyperbillionaire.

    Basically, everything u need in SMALL TIME is free here. If u have a question, post a thread, other member will show you to getit free most of the time. I doubt you need USD$10 to start anything here. This is the beauty of this place. Trust me, you don;t have to spend much here. you are not that professional YET!!!!!

    Pick some ideas and brainstorm domain names then go buy in bulk, that way your saving some money and when its time to start implementing, go buy some hosting... Thats all you realy need to get started..

    Out of the domains you buy, get one thats got a generic name so you can use subdomains, something like 'reviewcentre.com' then you can have 'diet.reviewcentre.com', 'workfromhome.reviewcentre.com' etc. etc.

    Find a shitty website for sale on sitepoint or dp. But one that you can improve.

    Use the free tools on here to get more backlinks and content. Make it look better and bam.

    Sell it to someone else

    Checking the map now...
    Home Page:
    First, I would have to see if my dealer takes PayPalz - What? You asked specifically "What would I do?"

    Then, and only then, I would put all of my focus, time and attention into planning my website... You can build it for free... You can market it for free... If I have the idea, or ideas, then this is free too.

    It will not be free to buy the domain ($2-$35 new)
    It will not be free to Host your site (maybe $80 year)

    Now if you have $10 or $20 left, you could find services on BHW to help you promote your new site through video, or lenses, etc. and at the same time be helping out some other BH's with some income.

    Assuming you have already done these steps, then I would revert to my original idea and check with my dealer.

    I'd use the money to buy food and when it ran out, I would go get a job.

    Times are tough now, so I wouldn't gamble with my last $100

    "Dominate Internet Marketing" membership. "***********" is a paid membership website ran by some elite members of this forum. I've never had a membership there, and I'm sure it's a great site since it's ran by people who know their shit. But honestly...I wouldn't recommend joining ANY membership site if you're a complete noob, you might not benefit from the advanced methods discussed there, and it would only discourage you.

    *runs and hides from the DIM people*

    Thank you :)

    I am having a hard time as a total n00b, because some of the things expklained in this forum seem very profitable and interesting, but they are explained assuming some minimum knowlodge I don not yet posses (and of course, netiquette indicates me that I should not be asking too many questions).

    100$ is enough money to run cheap webhosting for a few years, or a VPS.

    If you don't manage to make that money back in within a year you should think about another carrier ;)
