    Hey,
    I am looking to spend $10 a month on something that'll help me out. I mostly want subscriptions that'll automatically pay for it via PayPal.
    I just want a service that can help me in any way, whether it be backlinking or anything else. I mostly want backlinking.

    So if anyone knows where to subscribe to something and pay $9.99/month, I'll be doing that. +Rep and Thanks available. :]

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    Netflix has a 9.99 a month option.

    If you need an affiliate link to sign up I am sure that one of the 35K members here would help you out.

    Thanks for the response.
    Netflix will not help me, as I said I wanted something that would help me.
    And what do you mean with affiliate links? Pay $9.99 a month to sign up for an affiliate link? What?

    Any other help will be great. :]

    You might consider uglyhost dotnet. You get to choose 5 domains from their network with the only package they offer. The guy that told me about them got some awesome domain names that he's making several hundred a week off of. If you get that, you could set up a few Adwords pages and be making drinking money in a week.

    I would normally look for what I need, not what I can spend my money on.

    How about this: You save up for six months, buy scrapebox and let that increase your earnings.

    Just an idea and it is up to you of course. :)

    By the way, I am not affiliated with them, you can contact them from the site and can even find a topic on how to make money of this. The latter can also be found on this site. Search on this topic: How to make money with scrapebox.

    Just my 2 cents, ignore as you see fit.

    Amsterdammer has given the best advice, not the scrapebox part (not saying it's a bad idea), but rather save up the money, don't blow money just because you have it, even if it's 10 dollars. If you can't think of anything that you need, then just let it accumulate.

    But it seems that you're in the hunt for backlinks, so go looking for someone selling $10 dollars worth of backlinks, if you can't afford their lowest package then the suggestion once again is to go back to saving. ;)

    I'd get a shared hosting account and learn how to email using the low limit. Once I got good and maxed it out, I'd upgrade to a VPS.

    You can start a big business based on email marketing for less than $10/month.

    I did it and so can you.

    Thanks for the responses guys, I have decided to save the money up for something like Scrapebox (backlink purposes, as I already have websites up and running that need ranking) or No Hands SEO (Backlinks) or perhaps some other item I shall look forward to saving money for.

    That will be my plan. To save money within a 1-2 month range, and then proceed to buying Scrapebox so that I may build backlinks to my 5 quality websites.
    Thanks again for the responses.

    This seems kind of like a backwards way to manage money. I know you've already said you're going to save up and that's good. But for the future, it's best to find what you really need and work out a budget for it, saving up for it if you need to, rather than trying to spend money just because you can.

    If you spend on what you need rather than what you want, you'll be able to build a strategy, set aside money for it, and profit. What if you were to spend $10 a month on something just because you can, but then you find something for $20 a month that you actually need? Not only is your budget already tied up, you have to double your expenditure when you could have delayed your start, planned your expenses, and saved that $10 per month.

    Besides, if you start spending small now any chance you get, you'll likely develop a habit for it. You'll spend $10 per month now, then your budget will open up a bit and you'll look for somewhere to spend another $10, etc. etc. However, this really limits you, because what if what you really need is one of the $50 per month services like drip feeds, but you never are able to explore the option because you're tied up doing a bunch of separate $10 per month expenses?

    I don't know if you've ever played a tower defense game, but the goal is to build towers to shoot down various waves of enemies. A strategist will quickly find that buying many of the cheaper, weaker towers may work in the beginning, but in the long run, it's best to buy a few towers, save money, and upgrade them to be more powerful and efficient. This should be akin to your marketing strategy.

    Anyway, depending on what you're promoting, you should research effective ways people are backlinking for comparable sites, then model a strategy after that, and figure out what services you can do now, estimate an ROI, and determine how often you can add additional services to your strategy.

    For $10.00 you can buy 400 credits at High PR Society.

    400 credits can be used to get 133 article submissions into their network of all PR1+ blogs. You will get high quality contextual links which are definitely going to give you good SERP movement for your sites. It seems to already be working for me.

    I think that's the best way to use your $10.

    I think the concept of saving and budgeting is a horrible idea. Sure, those are the tried and true concepts of the middle and lower class for the last hundred years or so, but how is that working out for them? How is it working out for you?

    People who save and conserve cash are losing more through the devaluation of currency through inflation than they will ever gain through interest or the lack of loss through lack of risk.

    One common theme you will find among many of the people that have made the way above the $1,000,000 mark on their own is that they didn't save and budget their way there.

    Saving $10 a month may seem like a good idea now, but what good is it if inflation continues raising at a 5-10% rate? Save that $120 in a year and its deflated value will be $108. Now take into that the rising cost of goods and services and your looking at another loss of anywhere between 5-10% (lowballing it here folks, things will probably be worse) and you are looking at saving $120 over a year to only have the purchasing power of $96. And heaven help you if your not doing this with $10 a month, but rather $1000 (in which case you have to take taxes into consideration, and your purchasing power off saving $12,000 a year turns into around $6,300 if you are a single male).

    You will never make back what inflation is taking from you unless you are pulling in thousands of dollars a day. Spend it now, take risks, and hope that they turn around 10 fold, because the government and the corporate lobbiests are going to get theirs before you get yours.

    Here's what you can do: Buy a lot of chocolates, and give it to poor people in your neighborhood every month.

    That seems like a great way to spend $10 a month. But I've seen some services here offering article submissions for a lower price. Only reason I'll use HKSEO is to drip the links.

    Yes, as I have states many posts above.
    I have 3 microniche websites, and about 4 regular websites with nice names that can be for probably anything.



    And ARTIZHAY, Thanks very much for your post man. I will end up saving this money for ScrapeBox as I need it much for backlinking so to rank my websites.
    If you have any idea on what tool or software I should buy (Because I actually NEED these) then I'm all ears.

    Hi, you can try spinrewriter. It is being offered at $7/month for now. If you can't afford TBS ($77/$47) then you can go with monthly plan of spinrewriter. You will need lot of spin article for your backlinking work. So, may be you can get this.

    I won't do that as I can use a free article spinner that's quality.
    I'll save the $7 a month for Scrapebox.
