    As the title suggest, I am looking for what would be the most effective Internet Marketing strategy assuming one only had 25$ to spend at first. The answer can be absolutely anything to do with Internet Marketing.

    I am very interested to read what you guys think would be a decent route to take.

    Thanks.

    I was looking at some cheap domains from godaddy. Is there a certain webhost that you can recommend? And what exactly would you put on the sites to generate money?

    What resources and/or tools do you already have to work with besides the $25? If all you have to begin with is $25 and nothing else then you are not investing, you are rolling the dice and hope to hit it big on one pass. Probably the safest thing to do would be build a website and flip it.

    I should have perhaps been more clear. This is assuming you have a reliable internet connection, a PC, and time to work. I am decent at article writing, know the very basics of SEO and keyword research, and have used affiliate programs before. I have created a few blogs in the past. I also have a good understanding of the various social media sites.

    Register domains, cheap ones with cheap hosting for the first year (there are lots of specials all year long).
    Wordpress is free, millions of Themes are free... you can get very far with $25 if you want and are willing to put the work into it.

    I am completely committed to putting in the hard work to make myself successful. I know it doesn't just happen out of thin air. I would like to make sure that I put my hard work into the best opportunity with what I can invest right now.

    What type of site would you recommend trying to build with the domain and hosting? I have been considering an affiliate program but it seems Amazon doesn't give a great percentage from what I've read. I know a lot of people build review sites and stuff similar to that. I am still searching for what would be the best approach early on.

    Plan A should be to spend NO money. At this stage you should just start a blog or two on a free Web 2.0 property, join a few CPA or affiliate programs, and use those first blogs as your testing or training journey platforms to learn how to build a profitable site. Later, you can spend money on domains, software and the like as you realize enough success to scale up your IM operations.

    I always believed the saying, "You don't need money to make money, you need ambition". Even though I already saved up thousands and thousands, I haven't invested into anything big yet and it may not even be necessary to either.

    Good luck Amigo!

    Thanks for the reply. I definitely see your point about not trying to spend money at first. I guess I was looking for ways that 25$ could enhance a method to make money. I have used blogger in the past, and actually currently have a blog set up that has affiliate links set up on it. Is there anyway that you could take a look at my blog and point out any issues you see with it? I appreciate harsh criticism because it helps you learn. I do not believe I can PM you as a newbie, I would be very grateful if you would PM me.

    $25 can go buy you some food. I wouldn't spend any of it at all on IM. Each thing you'll do in your current position will be a fucking 90 degree uphill battle against terminators (and you got a plastic spork). I suggest that you take the route of securing money to spend on testing specific things out first. A domain and blog with adsense will get you no where unless you target fail zone low profit, ultra easy to rank keywords no one searches for. Even at that pace you'll get $100 after a few months, but by that time Google will have another update and there go your sites.

    The best money maker I have right now is managing advertising campaigns for people. It pays my bills, lets me invest my money, and lets me do what I enjoy to do. The downside is that I really wanted to take off on YouTube. The reality is that I have to advertise hardcore daily to even produce the growth I wanted by just posting High quality content. I do get donations from my subscribers on YouTube but my priority is my job to pay my bills. On the side I sell new items on CL and FB but you need to either know companies willing to sell you items at no profit at all to them, or have millions of dollars in sales and good standing with TechData, Synnex, or any of the major retail chains.

    Save your 25.

    The majority of methods work with no investment. Find a method that works for you after enough effort then use the 25 to scale it up.

    You will get a lot more money in return by using the money to scale a working method.

    Hosting and domain. Start growing a blog in a niche you love. Drive traffic with search engines, youtube, facebook, twitter. Treat it like your baby. It may just become a solid site bringing in several hundred or thousand dollars per month. With this money you can repeat the process. Get some passive income coming in from websites and with that, you can invest it in some other types of methods.

    spend $5 on a domain and wordpress hosting. Write 20-25 articles. Add some adsense ads and spend the remaining $20 on paid traffic. Preferably Mobile traffic. You will be able to make $100 from it for sure. Repeat.

    I'd probably spend it on a couple of beers.
