Is a 25-30% ROI per month good?

    Just wondering if people think that if you were to invest $100 into something, would a $25 each and everymonth be a good return on that original investment?

    not really - I mean you could put it to better use - buy a domain name with it, do some seo and make a lot more in the long run.

    Banks are making a killing with around 30% roi (giving 5% saving account interest and getting 15% credit interest with the same money. Large store chains have have huge turnovers but their roi is usually bellow 1%. I think above 10% is a good figure in economics. To get more than 50% you need a killer idea that sells itself without much investment.

    Yeah I'm not thinking it in a strictly business sense more so from an individuals stand point when looking to invest in something.

    Still, thanks for the reply, it makes you think.

    Yeah that is my point: a nice way to filter out scams. If something is returning that much you can just go to the bank, get a credit, pay the interest and keep the remaining money. No need for investors.

    OR the idea is so revolutionary that no bank will recognize the potential thus won't finance it and so it needs investors. Now it is up to you as an investor to judge the feasibility. And here comes the expression if it sounds too good to be true it probably isn't.

    On the other hand, it's just a $100 :D

    of course not good, you should target ROI with 50%+ projects

    Yeah I think you are right, I could imagine that trying to get credit to fund some blackhat venture could be quite tricky.

    And for a return of about 25-30% is that really too good to be true, especially when things like

    is said

    Wow... I can't beleive that some people are saying that a 25% monthly ROI is bad!

    If you had $100,000.00 to invest in an investement that would return 25% in 30 days! That is a profit of $25,000.00 in 1 month! Which equals to around $830 per day! That aint to shabby!

    Now, if you are talking about spending hours and not minutes on a sole investment that has a ceiling of only making $25.00 per month, then I would say that this is a waste of time! I hope this helps? :loco:

    It just depends on the numbers. For example if you have $100 to invest and find something that consistently gets you 25% roi I would say that is a safe bet. But this is the internet and things are changing every single day so that 25% roi could disappear before you made any real money.

    Now if you take the same scenario and start with 1 million dollars and make $250,000 in a month that would be worth it imo.

    25% ROI is good, if it is automated and long term income.

    Yeah, I think I wouldn't be looking at spending much time with this at all. Pretty much 5min a day just to check everything is running smoothly.

    Haha, I would love to have a million dollars to put into this thing. Also the process needed to make this ROI is pretty stable i.e take another 9/11 or recession to bring it down a bit but I still think it could do well in the long term.

    Yeah, pretty much automated and could be potentially long term.

    When talking about "traditional" investments you are obviously right. One needs to be either drunk or mentally challenged to pass on a 300% (25% /pm) ROI.

    But most online ventures that are found over here on BHW and other similar communities aren't comparable to traditional investments. Simply because the risk is usually enormous.

    When talking about equity funds or other traditional investment opportunities a 15% yearly ROI is very decent. But the risk of the fund collapsing is usually very, very low - 1% tops. With most online investments, however, the risk of collapse is typically as high as 70%+, meaning that in many cases a 10%/pa low risk investment is (in the long run) far more profitable than a 300%/pa high risk investment.

    That said, being presented with an opportunity to earn 300%/pa on my investment I would most definitely take a closer look into the venture, and if the risk doesn't seem enormously high I would certainly invest some funds in it.

    But obviously the above applies to sums larger than a few hundred bucks. To answer OP, if the investment is automated then sure, go for it. But if you need to actually do something to make the $25/pm then I suggest you to look around as with an amount as small as this you'll easily find opportunities that will net you 2000%+ instead of the 300%.

    And on top of the 25% - 30%, if there compound the profits, it would be a huge amount. Some would prefer to keep 50% of the profits and re invest again. The balance 50% would be use for emergency back up.

    Yeah, the compunding can be done I think mostly towards the end of the month, maybe even halfway aswell.

    If I get what I've been working on running well, I might put $100 into this and see how it all goes.

    It depends upon where you are investing and what is your risk factor.
    Say in Internet World if you are doing regular whitehat PPC and your return is 25% per month, it is nice to have.
    If you are doing 100% blackhat and your method get banned any minute, then 25% return is not something you should be happy with.

    If you have a brick and mortar business that gets 25% solid return each month, let me know your bank address - I will invest in your business :)

    300% per annum is pretty good. As a rule, if I buy a site with revenue, I'mm looking of an ROI in under 6 months, so for me 16% or more is good, anything under that isn't worth your while. Of course this only applies to projects that will return money on your investment for 2 years or more.

    Bloody hell lol, i'm just going to go for it. It's not much but I'm going to start with a $50 investment and hold it for about a month.

    Then if it all works out well sink about $500 or so into it. I'll let you guys know how it goes in about 30days time.
