Can someone start online marketing with only 200$?

Someone have asked me this question "Can someone start online marketing with only 200$?" and my answer is,
Based on my IM experience; No, this is the beginning of spending and the rest is coming up.
Of course keeping away SEO approach as it requires high time consuming learning efforts and he will stay out of earning for about 6-10 months until Google get satisfied upon him and get ranked to the first page, so, SEO is out of here.
It's the paid traffic which he'll gonna need to dive in, so in my opinion, 200$ is too low to keep the business self-automated. But, i wanted to know if i'm wrong about this and there is possibility for someone to start with a total budget of 200$ or some like it.

    Not all methods are equals,

    I personally started with $0 and it took me a few months to make a few thousand per month in passive income, but the method I picked was great.

    As soon as I see someone talking about SEO, affiliate marketing, starting a blog, I know they are not going to make any money any time soon. Why? Because I've done all of these and I know how it works. These method are simply not newbie friendly.

    If you are just starting out, you want money FAST, then you can more to something else if you want.

    In my opinion, you can success from ZERO....

    If you have money to outsouces or buy some ads, It will be much faster.

    If not.... its OK but you must invest more time to drive free traffic or doing some small jobs.

    Believe me! anything CAN possible!

      I'd add that if you spend no money, investing more time in driving free traffic by following proven, intelligent, disciplined methods, patiently, sharing value and helping others, is the way to become successful with no initial investment. Or with a super small initial investment.

      Good stuff Doan I see you everywhere.

    Yes, 200$ is little bit lower money to start this big internet marketing because things take time, contribution, money and reach.

    Wouldn't it depend on what they are trying to accomplish?

    They probably can't immediately launch themselves into a huge business with $200, but they can certainly start with $200.

    Theoretically, you can start with nothing at all and still succeed. For example, build following on social medias and feed them CPAs or affiliate offers.

    You can start on youtube and build a following there, spending only as much as a good mic and camera(if you need it) costs you.

    You can start by getting a hosting + domain, spending about 15$ for both for the first month and 5$ a month afterward, there is Wordpress and enough tools available for free that will allow you accomplish most of the things you'd like to accomplish, be it a blog, squeeze page, adsense, affiliate marketing or building a course or an email list, just to name a few.

    Maybe you want to offer a service that requires a subscription but doesn't involve creating a pricey product, then again all you'd need is the money for the host + domain. There are enough membership plugins available for free, and if you prefer going for a premium option the cost would still be way below 200$ for the best ones.

    So yes, there are a lot of options that come to mind that'd cost you below 200$ to start with, and I probably don't even know the half of them. Money WILL help you reach your goals quicker, but if you WANT to start and only have 200$, then nothing's stopping you.

      Yes, but with this low budget, can someone dive into a Paid traffic source or PPC campaign? I think it would be better to take the free traffic road.

    They could do marketing/social media/SEO training for $200 if they wanted to do it themselves.

    Theoretically, yes.
    Realistically, no.
    Hard work always pays off.
