    Hello Everyone,

    I am for the most part a complete noob when it comes to making money online. I have dabbled into the world of internet marketing in the past but never really gave it my full attention. I was still stuck with the old belief that I could only support myself working a "regular job". Now after all the stress and headaches of a 9to5 I am ready to move on and work for myself. I know it wont be easy but I am completely committed. So much that I have saved up some money and put in my 2 weeks notice at work. That being said I want to ask this question to anyone who has had success making money online and has knowledge that they are willing to share. What would you do if you lost everything and had to start all over again with nothing but $150 to invest? What would be your first move and how would you get the quickest return on your investment. Thanks in advance. I look forward to seeing your replys.

    Honestly, don't look for quick returns, you'll spend a lot of time skipping from method to method, and you'll end up broker than ever months later.

    If I were you, I'd take that $150, buy hosting and a .com domain, set up a wordpress review blog promoting affiliate products and with the rest of the money, have professional content written for your site. Whatever you do, stick to it on the long term, and the most important thing, take action. Welcome to the world of IM.

    Option 1: Buy a domain it cost only 1 usd now with Godaddy. Buy some good articles. Buy a SEO tool such as scrapbox.
    Option 2: Buy a good website which earn 15 - 20usd/month and develop it

    I suggest all noobs start out building Micro Niche Websites. This will give you a very nice overview of then entire process of webdesign and SEO as a whole. Everything you learn from building MNS will become extremely valuable to you when you decide to move on to other projects.

    $150 is the perfect amount to start out with MNS. That should be enough for you to successfully create and launch 2 or 3 successful MNS that could end up bringing you $50 each/month within a few months.

    I strongly suggest you visit the site in my sig and pick up a copy of their free MNS guide. It covers everything from keyword research, hosting, web design, content, monetizing, website maintenance... pretty much everything you need to get started.

    Good luck!

Push all traffic to my niche sites, bang em in the emails with offers or redirect to my other site with more ads. You should make your money back easily. Reup and do it but bigger. Master your method, then do it BIG. It's about the numbers! Good Luck.

    Well with being a "noob," such lack of experience adds risk to any investment you're going to make. Before spending the $150 at all, I would explore the forum and see what other people are doing - hard or easy - and see what kind of money they are investing in them.

    Personally, with $150, I can get a 100% to 600% ROI through PPC depending on what I promote, so that's just one out of many ways I would spend $150, but if you don't know what you're doing, you'll see that $150 go down the drain with nothing to show for it.

    What are you good at? Or you know nothing about nothing?? Ask it to yourself.

    I mean something that you can sell on Internet. If you can sell your own service or product, there are lots of ways to make money.

    But, if you got nothing to offer, then, the only way is to promote someone's product or service.

    Either to promote your product or someone else's, you gotta have a spot(domain+host = site) on the Internet.

    To promote someone else's products or services there are lots of techniques that you may find, here. Just search around.

    The most common is to promote affiliate products or services, for a noob, this is not that easy, because you gotta learn how things work, beforehand.

    Search thru the huge BHW database and you'll find lots of old topics that will explain everything for you and give a solid ground for you.

    CPA = Cost Per Action
    JBP = JustBeenPaid

    A day ago I saw a post on facebook about an upcoming HYIP, I know HYIP is scam but I take the risk and invest my extra money that I got from fiverr. I invest $20 in this new HYIP and see if this is a real or scam. Few hours later I check the stats and I got my first earning. I withdraw it instantly to my paypal to see if this is real, I open my paypal account and my earning from this HYIP show instantly. Here is some proof.

    I don't know if this will last long. But if you want to join this HYIP just invest your "EXTRA BUCKS". We don't know maybe after few months this HYIP become scam. :p

    There's a hell of a lot more that you need to do in option 1 in manual work. ScrapeBox will be good for tier 2, to index the tier 1.
    Option 2 will cost more than $150.
