    Hello.

    What would you do if you had 6$K to invest and no business at all ?
    That's my situation.

    If this can help you :
    • I'm living in a "rich" non-English European country.
    • I've two years of programming experience.
    • I don't want to "double" that 6K in one month as I want to be realistic.
    • I had this 6K from an online business which doesn't exist anymore.

    I know that we're on BHW.. blablabla people won't share their Technics, but who knows I might get lucky.

    If you are good at programming, just create a software that your country needs it. SOLVE A PROBLEM.
    In my country two skilled programmers created a simple program in our native language that make small/mid/big business finance tasks very simple, and that everyone and their dogs can use it. VERY EASY TO USE AND VERY EASY TO UNDERSTAND.
    They started with very small budget and right now they are one of the biggest firm on their niche, plus that they have expanded their softwares in other niches and categories too.

    I'd pick one of my favorite blackhatters to advise me for a modest fee on what path to take. Members like WizGizmo, Oxonbeef, G-S-T, jazzc and 7878 come to mind, among others. BHW authorites who walk the talk. I'd pay them $500 for their counsel and then actually do what they say their way.

    Since you are a programmer.... I would suggest starting a site selling in demand software. Also giving away simple software to start building an email list and social followers. Focus on software building and running the business. Since you have 6k I would personally buy 6 months worth of top seo services from vitarank and let them handle all the seo. While you create software, build your list, and bank!

    Easy pee zee!

    Start off small and free and invest the money when you have a working method. Plus use the money to live off so that you can carry on putting all your efforts into IM, without the need to get a "real job".

    Trial and Error, maybe? The same goes for OP, no one can tell you what will make money, you need to try for yourself.

    I'm absolutely serious and no offense my amigo mickfu, its just that the guys I listed and others like them have so many working methods they don't have to covet all of them. In fact, some of them would reject my money and still help. I would insist if possible because its only right. Maybe the secret to being on their level is hard smart work and bigtime generosity.

    1. Put AC/DC on, Thunderstrike recommended

    2. Pick a big group of people that uses technology in their lives

    3. Examine the software that is supposed to make their lives easier but fails to deliver

    4. Deliver better than that vendor

    5. Profit

    6. Rinse and repeat

    Don't only focus on programming, Make or buy an authority website and make some good cash with it and them invest it.

    I don't know how much skills would two years of experience get you but just like other members have said, Start locally find a problem and solve it. This will seriously give a huge shortcut in marketing since you're offering a service no one else does.

    But if I had $6000 and wanted to invest it I would do so in creating an authority website. Most of the money would go on content and not SEO. Don't get me wrong SEO is essential but once you have tons of good content it is only a matter of time until you reach success.
