    Hi guys -

    I've been lurking this forum a while.. and finally got around to making a username to become a little more active.

    I've made decent money with amazon and ebay.. and now I want to get into other stuff - minisites, ClickBank, PPC, Adsense.. etc

    My question to you is - What would you do if you had $1000 to use to get started in another channel of online money making madness?

    I'm good at outsourcing, and have outsourced most everything I've done online, and I'm interested in other types of online businesses that can be outsourced.

    So - would you buy mentoring? Create mini sites for adsense? Clickbank?

    Personally if I had $1000 to use which I do every 2-3 weeks I would make a variety of adult mini sites. Find a couple niches in the adult category then set up a WordPress site based on the niche. From there just add videos and do a little YT promotion in the beginning to get visitors to your site. From there your site will be indexed in Google and after a while you will be receiving a bit of traffic without any promotion at all. Of course you will want to keep adding videos to make your site more "viewable" and to have more SEO traffic but in the end it will be well worth it.

    I would buy Iphones then sell them on websites like gazelle. Put ad on craiglist and sit outside a store somewhere and say all day i will pay for you money for iphones, and itouches used ones. I probably pay 20-50$ per used itouch and iphones.

    I've looked into doing that; looks like a good idea. Only thing is, I don't think anyone will give their iPhone away for $20 - $50 (unless the LCD is broken). I had someone offer me their iPhone 3G (16GB) with a cracked LCD for $40.

    I would put it all into adwords. If it turns into some profits, then I bank 'em all again and again. If it's a total loss, then at least I've tried hard.

    go to hookers! won't give you any ROI but will put a smile on your face. :) Yeah I know I'm an ass with this reply, but what do you expect to such a question? If YOU don't know what to do with $1000, how could somebody else know? Everybody will tell you what THEY would do, which doesn't mean it is the best thing for YOU to do. Instead of asking others just sit down and think what you're good at, what you're not good at, how you could build something to bring you money and how and where would $1000 help you. Just sit down and thing. Put ideas on paper. Something will pop up. You'll know that's the way to go the instant you thought it because you get an "a-ha!" moment. If you get no good idea, it probably means you're too clueless regarding IM and you should leave the $1000 in your pocket and give yourself a week or more to either take a break from everything (I personally have a hard time taking a break from work because i'm a workaholic) or dedicate several days to just reading around here and in other places about ways to make money. Then give yourself a few days so the information gets processed by your subconscious (this is very important) and then you'll get an idea. It might even seem unrelated to your research, but trust me. That's your subconscious breaking through into your conscious mind.

    Haha.. very good. Maybe I'll give that a shot.

    Yeah, I know I'm not going to do anything that doesn't fit with what I like, I just wanted to ask the boards because communication sparks ideas and ideas are what I'm looking for.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I read through HotBoy's mini niche site thread (well, most of it).. and I'm thinking about an Adsense/CPA route.

    Any other ideas out there?

    I was just on craigslist and all these people want top dollar for there iphones its crazy. This dude was selling his used iphone for retail price it was crazy when i can only get 419 for what he was offering.

    I might just put an ad on craigslist and say im going to be at a starbucks or somthing with a sign and i will pay CASHMONEY upfront for used iphones and i will put a price list for the phone.
