    So I have made some small investments over the years (I have a website, youtube and instagram) But have never really know what do do with them.

    I have read many threads on here about CPM, Re-Uploading videos etc. So I was wondering what you guys started off with and what direction you think I should go down? I have a bit of $ saved up but I'm not really sure how to utilise it?

    I have a fair bit of knowledge in all areas, just not enough to know what to do. Currently I'm swaying towards a MassPlanner subscription, or maybe getting an IG bot

    Time. That's the most valuable asset you can ever have. :)

    Try doing PPI or something, get them to install hacks for popular apps. After you have $500 to invest into something go into SEO or PPC. Continue with your PPI until the other method starts making money and you can have a sustainable income from it and reinvest further into it with more sites/campaigns.

    Good luck!

    Pay Per Install.
    Although I think CPA (Cost Per Action) is more suitable than PPI. You can join network like CPAGrip, which will instantly approve you.

    What hekke meant by using PPI is Payp Per Install, you are paid when a customer install a software on their computer.

    What do you think about Amazon affiliate, as I already have an account with them. And also what mediums do you suggest I push these on?

    Money will help you in domains you have advanced knowledge and know how it works. When you become confident about your skills in a certain domain, you can outsource it because you know how it works, and you know what to ask. If you try to invest in a field you have no knowledge in, you'll lose your money 90% of the time.

    That's the thing though, I have knowledge in all areas, but little knowledge. There is not one particular area I am good at :(

    Then invest time to perfect some skills and knowledge, make sure you know how to make money with this knowledge, and then only, invest money.

    Are you monetizing your properties at all? Do you have a large and active audience?

    I get around 30,000 views/month on youtube, but the video has monetisation locked due to a stupid claim, I still have my amazon link in the description though. My website gets arround 40 views/month, as I have literally told no one the address, so I do not have adds. And I don't know how to monetise my instagram, that currently has 5,000 followers

    Well, you should expand on all of those. Look into CPA offers which are a good way to monetize each the three properties you mentioned. But you should work hard on expanding all of them. You make more videos and monetize them, you should build up your website and start looking for an audience by promoting it on social media and learning about SEO and you should grow your Instagram more. You will not all the advice you need in this thread alone so invest some time in educating yourself, there are huge loads of info shared on this forum, you just have to immerse yourself in it and find the golden nuggets that are going to help you. I think the IM Journeys section is a good place to start.

    Sounds like a plan. The only thing is that I'm from the uk, so it is quite hard to receive payments unless they use paypal. Also there is not much content for UK sites. As to the growing accounts, I will certainly be doing that, and I have just bought masss planner

    First investment? I'm not hundred percent sure, but i think it was private proxies and some kind of social media bot.

    For a long time, i was a believer of 100% free methods with zero investment. It worked pretty well, because it was easier back then, when for instance tor or public proxies could be used for a lot more things than nowadays, such as classified ads posting.

    You can't really go wrong with buying a social media bot, if you have some experience in that field. But make sure that you have a (working) plan before you purchase anything, especially if money is tight. Try your plan manually, if you see some positive result, invest into tools, proxies, accs etc and scale it up.

    There are a lot of threads when OP buys something, but don't know what to do with it, with titles like this: I {have|purchased} X, what now? :)
    That's not a good approach.
