    If you wanted long term, stable income, what would you start investing $300 into?

    Email marketing with solo ads maybe? Check out Godziwa's journey, it's really inspiring.

    Pick an affiliate product on CBEngine, sign up with GetResponse (first 30 days is free), create a webform, put the webform on a squeeze page that promotes that affiliate product, and buy solo ads to build up your mailing list.

    OP I will be real with you, You can't start anything with $300...this is the fucking truth.

    WHY?

    I know for many people $300 its a lot of money but that does not mean it enough.

    People who have skills and know what they are doing they can make something from $300 but you can't.
    As you don't have the skills, the tools, the knowledge you need. You will need to pay way way more and end up with fat big 0 probably.

    IM is brutal when starting out only few are lucky to survive and you know why becouse they have fallen 100 times but never give up.

    You will loose money and time but this is beneficial as you will gain a knowledge and the tool for the next project that will actually bring you money.

    I have probably burned around 2K, but I gained a lot.
    Know when I start something I know what I need to to what to do and I have most of the tools to do it.

    Agree with this. I would invest in seo that's for sure because I learned and gained some skill in rankings so I would invest there. You should start reading, master something and then invest in that to scale up. Once you completely dominate in your field, making passive income, start doing something else. Good luck.

    what wizard04 said is the absolute truth. Invest in your mind first, get educated about what you're about to do. Then think of investing the $300. Good luck!

    I think what wizard was saying was to invest the $300 to fail as with that failure comes the realest experience and knowledge you don't get by "investing in your mind" and reading blog posts.

    I would have to agree with this. Op $300 just simply isn't enough.

    I blew through $450 this week on a failed Click Bank site, my own fault though I chewed through my advertising budget. Sometimes I burn through a few hundred testing adverts on facebook. If you do want to invest that $300 my suggestion would maybe be a simple Click Bank website but you would have to do some deep research and expect to lose that $300.

    You could possibly start an average website based on a product and find a super super super SUPER low competition keyword then find a cheap seo service and try rank for it. but once again ecpect to lose the $300 because it really just isn't enough to get something going at first.

    I have seen thread where people have made money off less than $300 but I'm going to assume they failed a few times before hand.

    Based on my post in one of the other "$300" threads, I'll just repeat:

    You can use the $300 to buy several aged or expired domains with good page/domain authority and backlinks, from which you can more quickly build stable high ranking websites in your chosen niches. You can also buy 1 or 2 "ginsu knife" IM programs, like Scrapebox, GSA or No Hands SEO to automate a lot of marketing functions.

    The purpose of the $300 is to set yourself up to make money, but you still have to do the main work yourself. Before you start spending money, you might take the time to do some no-cost methods to build your skills up, such as keyword research, article writing and link building for a Blogger blog or other Web 2.0 platform. Once you feel ready, move on to ranking a domain site---or perhaps better, create a lot of Web 2.0 properties and build their authority for popular niches, then sell authority links or guest posts to others trying to rank their sites.

    Don't beleive this BS.

    You CAN start making money with even $50. All you need to buy is domain, a design for your squeezepage, and an autoresponder (e.g. aweber) and that's it.
    Then just promote your website on social media, forums, blogs etc. No SEO skills required, just find the best sources to generate leads.

    wizard is right, I've invested 3,000 grand trying various things all have failed, just keep at it. I've seen people I know thrive from blogs new cars and house type of money. My advice is to spend a lot of time reading, I've spent 3-4 weeks of reading various form posts to see the approach I want to take and just now I started pump small amounts of money into it.

    You can either have time or money. If you have none then you can't make money. But if you have time, you can make most of the work needed for a website yourself. Keyword research, content, build some web 2.0 s, forum posts etc for off page seo and you can buy scrapebox to find 10 deleted domains to create a mini (not so powerful PBN). If you bought all these as a service you would need a couple of thousand dollars for sure. So yes, you can make something out of these 300 dollars if you put a lot of work but don't expect to earn xx,xxx in 3 months. For this to happen you probably need more money.

    with only $300 I would go with social media, less chance of failing and if it does you are still left with an account that you can sell.

    i would $100 each in 3 different things and see what works. because wizard4's post is partly true.so why not split the risk.
