    So I'm about to get $1,000 for some work I did, how should I spend it?

    I like the idea of using AdWords and/or Facebook to promote offers because it is extremely scalable but I don't know how to make a compliant offer. Should I make a landing page and sell clickbank offers? Or promote French surveys?

    I don't really want to do SEO because it's a constant changing game with big G updating their algorithms and before you know it all your sites are on the 10th page.

    I want to invest it not just waste it. When I start earning $XX,XXX per month I'll be all up in those hookers but for now I'd like to get a stable income.

    I would go with this suggestion. At least 10% of it as an investment.

    I'm tired of users like you. Was it that important for you to reply on this thread with a shit reply ?

    OP is talking about of to re-invest his money so that he can earn from IM. Next time please keep your shit to yourself.


    OP, i'll suggest you to think well before investing into anything. PPC with CPA offers definitely works but you need to exactly how to do it. So don't waste all your money in the first try.

    I remember spending my first 1k on paid traffic to promote EWA offers, maybe you can get started with PPV, its cheap traffic and converts good. Try networks like leadimpact, traffic vance.

    Honestly I would do some solo ads, it will take work but it seems like the quickest way to turn a profit. You could buy a couple of solo ads and also send your email list to offers. Even if they don't buy, atleast you could sell their emails through solo ads. That's my 2 cents. I would also invest in litecoin.

    Don't invest in traffic/ads unless you have a proven product that sells. Think long-term, pick a few low to medium hard keywords in a niche, set up a blog, buy articles in bulk, keep adding 1 every few days and invest the rest in SEO. You should see some profits within a few weeks or months.

    If you're new to PPC, $1000 isn't enough unless you do a lot of due diligence prior to your media buys.

    So I suggest you read up everything there is to know about adwords or fb before going in with a blind eye.

    If you don't know what to spend it on already. Don't look forward to start spending it once you get it.

    Spend it on what you need.

    Since you don't know what you want to spend it on, it sounds like you don't need anything.

    If you are just looking at blowing it away, just buy domains and designs and flip them for twice the profit. Ensure keyword research is done and things like that. (Never have I done the flippa thing I just mentioned, just giving it as an example).
