What would you do with $10K?

58 replies
So I've got $10K put aside here to invest. This is quite a lot of money for me because I'm only 19, but I definitely don't want it sitting in a bank losing value.

I'm looking for a good way to get returns and I'm not too afraid of risk (as long as its manageable). What would you invest the $10K in?

    I would buy a GOO SOLID ecommerce site on Flippa. One that is well established and doesn't depends on google traffic.

      I would do just the same but after doing a solid due diligence on the site and seller. a 10k site can be something very good and with a lot of potential

      forget this advice. Buying an e-commerce is one heck of a headache. E-commerce reseller value is horrible too. Are you prepared to pull out more money to upgrade the site ? or deal with further development costs ? it's not worth the headche.

      My advice ? go buy silver/gold and sit on that.

    valuecreator is correct. An ecommerce site or a good profit making Adsense or Amazon site will bring you regular income after you invest in it. Another alternative is to invest in yourself for learning paid adverting which can multiply your income if done well.

    Wow! So many ways to answer this. Depends on your goals, skills, risk portfolio.

    Stocks/Shares/Forex = Can be high risk but extremely lucrative if you don't mind losing the whole lot worst case. Or go for the established stocks but slightly lower returns.

    Personally I do houses. Buy it at a right price and you end up with solid recurring income, or sell it for quick gains and repeat the process. You can better leverage through housing than stocks or gold for example.

    As mentioned by Lim above it depends mainly on your skills and experience you have.
    If you ask me I would suggest you to use that money to bring in paid traffic to affiliate offers because I have more knowledge on this and if you ask some seo guys they would probably say create some sites and bring it to the top of google because they feel comfortable in doing those things.

    So if you plan to travel through a path which you don't really know how it looks then it would be a worst nightmare to you.
    So be smart enough to choose the one which you feel more comfortable and don't ever think of following the path just because one guy has got success with so even I would get.

    Depends if you want to be a
    "passive "
    investor

    or take action yourself
    passive is low return on the money and difficult to control the outcome

    if me? I would join a few paid boards such as Stack that Money and Aff Playbook
    and then learn CPA and paid traffic

    within 6-12 months if you are not earning good money, you are either lazy or just not interested in making money, those places have such wealth of information

    What are you doing now? Build on that. If you're developing websites, use the $10,000 to give you a jump start in marketing or to redesign the site professionally.

    Or buy a reputable site on Flippa that's further down the line than you currently - it's more established, has more traffic, etc. - in that way you're using the money to save lots of time.

    Don't spend it on something completely unrelated to what do now - the money won't go as far. Don't be in a hurry to spend it. Take your time and choose wisely and you'll be investing and not just spending.

    Good Luck!

    Some good advice above. Mine is the following: BE FRUGAL. Do NOT blow this money. Do your research. If you want to make money doing affiliate marketing, yes you will need the $10k to get you off to a good start but DO NOT invest/spend it blindly. Limit your risk by really doing your research before you start an affiliate marketing project.

    Since you're posting this in the CPA part of the forums, I'll give you a CPA answer;

    Get into paid advertising for CPA offers. There's a ton of information online already about this, you just need to put in the time to learn it.

    I started off with $500 less than a year ago, now I'm just trying to keep my 4 figure profit days consistent.

      Have you really had time, in two days, to learn and research enough to know what are you going to do with your 10k? I doubt so, so many times I was convinced about starting certain project, and as time goes you realize you could have been doing something much better...

    What do you prefer, a quick ROI, or a big ROI?

    A quick ROI is easy, but I would go for the big one, and I would recommend you to learn learn and learn about Internet Marketing, then sell something to the public (something like a digital product where margin is 100% because you don't have to buy anything).
    And don't do affiliate stuff, sell your own product to targeted people (no ad networks, better media buying, the less middlemen the bigger the ROI).

    paid advertising all teh way, master a traffic source first though. Release funds at $1k increments so you don't blow it all over a given month. If you find a decent ROI on a campaign, fuel it and ride it out till the ROI depletes, and move on.

    I would invest in buying a lot of ebay traffic then sending that traffic to my dropship ordering site. You may want to see the details at wholesale-portal(.)info Another is to invest in winning CPA campaign promotions. Then once I got more of it... I would go into real estate investing... rental properties!

    If you have $10K saved up, you are obviously doing something right... consider sticking with that.

    If you insist on investing in another type of venture, do your homework and ease into it. Don't spend it all at once. There is money in literally every branch of online marketing, there is no such thing as a dead end... but you will naturally excel in some areas and struggle in others, and that is why it's important to take is slow at first until you get a feel for the niche that earns you the most.

    Best of luck.

    PS: consider producing something (ebook, software, ???)

      All kidding aside depends on what your good at I would not invest it all in anything I would break it up to 2k a pop or 2500 a pop and get 4-5 different things going that way if 1-2 tank your still ok
      If you drop 10k into one thing and you have no clue what your doing you will have 10 cents tommorow

    Well, @Adevictus,

    You said you aren't afraid of risk, and if you are hard working people, I would recommend to do two realistic ways to make money. The first one would be product creation and second is investment in paid-traffic.

    Well, paid-traffic scaries a lot right. But it can bank you a LOT! Sure you shouldn't go ahead and work with paid-traffic if you're newbie in PPC. You should join PPC-COACH membership. I bet you will love this.

  • The same thing I'd do with 100k

    Divide it up and diversify it into different business investments/models online or off at a rate of 5% per investment.

    Then rinse, repeat the process.

    A few examples could be...

    Domain flipping
    car sales
    lawn care service (outsourced of course)

    You get the picture.

    5% of 10k is 500.00

    So just find a list of 20 business you can invest in and easily outsource for 500 a pop.

    All you need is 1 to work and you will make your 10k back.

    Always use minimum risk...to achieve maximum gain.

    Never put all your eggs in one basket.

    The safe reply is put it in a term deposit for 3 months at around 5.5% while you are thinking about it.

    My approach would be something like this (note it is my approach)

    I assume you are on Warrior forum because you are interested in IM? Therefore i'd definitely take around $200 of that money and invest it in a coaching course.
    Good ones are about - it would be very good use of that money.

    I'd also look at a couple of developing companies that have been smashed by the recent global events.
    I prefer mining companies. But thats just my preference.
    So i'd identify 2. I'd do extensive research on why they are low priced.
    I'd then get a technical analysis overview on them, then i'd put $2000 in each one.

    Iron ore or perhaps gold in relation to above. But you would certainly want these companies to be showing strong signs of further developments and future growth.

    The remainder i'd put into cash in probably a high interest internet bank account. (or if cash is not your thing, invest that money into 2 additional bluechip companies that are fundamentally and importantly, technically sound to ensure you are getting a good entry point.

    If unsure? Keep it in cash.

    So with that $10,000 you would have:

    1. Invested in yourself with good coaching training.

    2. Invested in 2 promising companies that within several years hopefully will have increased in value as the global commodity prices and the economy picks up.

    3. Have the additional cash secure and at least making you some money.

    with the rate of growth bitcoin is experienced if you invested that 10k last year right now you would have x150, thats right 1,500,000.

      IMO that has to be the worst idea ever! Bitcoin is a global ONLINE currency. You wouldn't walk into a walmart overseas and pay in bitcoins would you? Probably not. You can, pay in gold. We all know gold is skyrocketing if you know when to get in. Although bitcoin has potential I wouldn't put all my 'coins' in 1 basket
