    Man, if you have no idea what you're doing, don't take the $15000 from him. You'll end up regretting it.

    I have the investment of a lifetime for him. I can sell him a copy of my site refiusa.org and I can show him how to buy traffic and make profit for his site. PM me if you want to talk more. I am earning thousands a day with my site.:)

    Well, your question is really broad. Okay, niche sites. There's money in those.

    those $1000-2000 monthly profit, he expects it to be fast or he's patient enough to wait for a year before he can get it?

    To be honest, there's no certainty on the net. If he wants it fast, go with media buys. It's high risk though so he needs to know what he's doing (trial-and-error might be costly for him)

    If he's patient enough, go with SEO and building list.

    You could try ppc. It might take a number of attempts before you find something profitable, but you would definitely have the capital to scale a project up if you found a profitable campaign.

    LOL...So at the least, he wants an 80% return on his money over the next year (1,000 x 12 months / 15k). Yeah...that's reasonable! LMAO.

    If you have to ask, you don't know what to do with the money. Not being rude, just honest, man.

    Tell him to give you $2000 and come see you in six months. Spend the first month reading like mad. The second month doing KW research. The next month buying tools, domains, hosting, etc...and the last 3 working like mad. If you learn quick, you'll double or triple his money. Maybe much more, but don't count on it.

    Then again he could buy an existing site that's bringing in $1000 a month (likely cost would be close to $12000) but if neither of you are truly experienced, you may get burned.

    The learning curve is too steep in PPC to go messing around with his money there (unless of course he could care less about it but doesn't sound like it!). You/He can get eaten up in a hurry.

    Either start much smaller and shoot for the long term or roll the dice and buy an existing site that's already PROVEN. Personally I'd go for the 1st one. If you learn quickly, you'll prove yourself and have access to more investment money to scale up very fast (which could include paying others to do work you would have to do. Two or three of you = 2 to 3 times the profits...What a concept!!!...LOL).

    Most important....make sure your "friend" is willing to lose any and ALL monies he invests with you. And ask yourself if it's worth risking your friendship over. People can get very "funny" when it comes to money. Business and friendship rarely go smoothly together. What's most important to you, the friendship or the money?

    Best of luck to you.
