    Hi,

    If I had to go back I'd definitely spend my last 200$ on hosting and a domain name, to launch my own product. I've tried it all and nothing comes close to owning and selling your own stuff

      Same here. You only need about $50 for domain, hosting, and auto responder (probably less).


      The rest you can use to outsource different parts of the product creation/launch process.


      Or you can use the extra cash for paid traffic.


      If you don't know how to properly launch a product then you might just want to invest in a coach to guide you throughout the process.

    I would......

    - find niche (free)
    - get site with free wordpress blog
    - create squeeze page
    - find or create product
    - drive traffic (have to pay for this. start cheap using PPC)
    - do email marketing with autoresponder
    - find or create backend products
    - eventually do consulting for big money

    That's should be enough for a $200 budget to spend on

    I get this question a lot. As above you need some education on the subject so put something into that. But most certainly get a few domains and hosting so you can have some virtual property. Next, Get familiar with fiverr to boost your domains position on google and have a video intro made and submitted. I would also pick up some SEO tools on Fiverr.

  • Depends what you are getting into.

    I recently setup a design blog, if I only had $200 to spend i'd probably put $50 on a premium theme and the rest hire an ok'ish designer to create the branding for me.

    It really depends on your niche but i think first impressions mean ALOT, if you have a horrible looking site or poorly executed brand and message then you'll likely see most visitors bounce after 10 secs

    I would say BING, test small and go nuts, and upscale, and always send your cpc traffic to a good landing page.

    banner ads, or blog ads, or blog posts paid are a good option too.

    I started with basically nothing, and have built up 5 figure per month businesses doing this. Free traffic first, and then paid traffic.

    Free traffic is where its at, if you want a little bit of success, and paid traffic is where its at, for massive success.

    With $200, I would buy the LeadPages monthly subscription (around $37/month), Aweber auto responder ($1 trial) and use the rest to purchase traffic to start building an email list in my niche.

      This is the smartest answer there is IMO. A list of niche targeted subscribers is probably the most valuable aspect of any successful Internet Marketing business. It's traffic and money at the push of a button. It doesn't get much easier than that (once you get the ball rolling).

    Create your own product. You can do so for free. Once you have that, get hosting and a domain name. Create a squeeze page and buy a couple of solo ads to send to your squeeze page.

    Getresponse has a 30 day free trial, so that would give you time to start a list without paying for an autoresponder.

      Well... I gave Charlie the $200 for advice, as I can read from most of you who are saying you would also take the $200 and pay a guru for advice, i'm feeling pretty confident about my decision.
      Charlie said something along the lines of a children's parable which roughly suggested that when you find yourself down and out, on your last few hundred bucks in the bank... Apparently the key to success is to actually invest that last $200 with his Colombian friend Carlos, and Carlos then actually will provide more Tigers Blood... Moral of the story is, once tiger blood is at its peak, then he says the ideas start flowing & from there you can just go around demanding outrageous things like instead of 1 million per ad campaign, you now want 3 million.... So obviously, i think we have the recipe for success here.

      Really hope this helps - Charlie is truly winning.

    Commodity and stock markets are going to open with a gap tomorrow. Depending on Greece referendum outcome, it's going to be either a positive or negative gap.
    If you asked on Friday, I'd told you to buy gold at $1160. If you get another chance ...
    Buy 2-3 Oz of Gold at $1150 and sell at $1200. You've just made $100 - $150
    Buy 20 barrels of Oil at $50 and sell at $60. You've doubled your money.

    Trade with leverage at plus500, markets.com, oanda.
    But keep in mind these brokers don't accept customers from the third world countries, such as Nigeria, N.Korea, USA, etc.

    Autoresponder? What the hell are you going to do with it if you only have $200. Spend two hours to learn how to create the autoresponder with PHP and MySQL. If there are so many people who can't create their own autoresponder, invest some time to create one and sell it to those who are willing to pay for it.

    I would invest that $200 in a VA and turn it into $2000 through content marketing.

    I can do this cheaply because i'm a writer.

    Your costs and results obviously will vary.

    I would start by making sure I had at least 1 domain and a good host, IMO those are the 2 starting points.. from there you can do side work (article writing, link building, etc) to build up more money to invest

    Domain and hosting is very important but I'd spend every red cent on guidance.

    You do have to pay for good advice, that's just the way it is.

    I'm glad that I did.

    I personally would invest it in my own personal domain and hosting which is the bread and butter of the trade. I understand you will want to maximize your $200 as much as possible but you will also want to look at the long term for your investment of time.

    Free hosting can be a temporary solution to reduce your expenditure but in the long run, it won't be advisable to place your work in someone else's hands. There is no guarantee that your site will not be closed down in the event they feel you have breached any of their policies.

    With that done, i would proceed to clickbank/amazon to find a suitable product to market and use free traffic generation methods to get the ball rolling. With the remaining money, spend a small amount every now and then for paid traffic to give the site that extra push.

    I'd get a coach. It's incredible the difference between reading info and having a coach.

    Don't get me wrong, reading is the best way to learn.

    However, there is nothing like having someone with experience to guide you.

    Decide what sector of this crazy thing called IM makes the most sense to you. Find a good coach and keep taking action.

    I'd get a domain, hosting, and an autoresponder (I think the first month is free with both GetResponse and Aweber).

    I'd set up a squeeze page and go crazy driving traffic to the squeeze page to build a list.

    Encourage the traffic to sign up to your list by giving away a free report. Create an ecover for the report at fiverr for $5.

    You don't have to spend money to drive the traffic, you can use free methods like articles, guest blog posting, etc.
