Down to your last $50 what's your gameplan?

132 replies
Hypothetically speaking, you're broke down to your last $50.
Your only means to some money is via online marketing or what not.
What route are you taking ?

Love to see everyones thoughts during a stressful situation they are going through.

    Maybe just get a job, rather than slave online during such "stressful situation" with only $50?

    Do you live in America? And your broke! I would go to work on myself first and learn how to manage and just do things a little differently so I can begin to get different results.

      Wow! Your reply is derogatory and unacceptable. There are plenty of people who live in the U.S.A. who are broke for a variety of reasons, including situations beyond their reach (i.e. 2008 meltdown, mortgage and banks fiasco, etc.) I suggest you give people the benefit of the doubt and be more respectful.

    These posts really need to stop. There are literally hundreds just like it. Even though in your little experiment you do not want to hear "get a job" it is what you need to do. Sorry, you need to eat and keep a roof over your head. Internet marketing is not a desperation move, it is a business and needs to be treated as such.

    While I am also sick of these threads, to play nice I'll answer your "hypothetical" question if you answer mine:

    You're broke and down to your last $47.53. Your only means to money is by dressing up as a farm animal and singing Norwegian pop songs.
    What route are you taking?

      I'm not broke.
      Never have been and never will be because since I was a young child my father handed me a book and a responsibility to take care of business.

      I work my butt off and am proud of myself for doing so. While in the mean time I learn as much as I can from others who are in positions I myself would love to be in.

      Hope you all have an equally nice day with those butthurt attitudes. It's Monday, and there is an old saying they if you look at a Monday with an attitude then you probably are living a boring life. Cheer up and stop being so hurt by a darn forum post. I have a 3 year old that complains less than some here.

        So you're not broke but you're creating forum threads about being broke just for the hell of it.

        Makes sense.

          Hey whatever floats your boat and makes your ego feel full then so be it. Apparently you commenting on a post that you hate so much shows your inability to stay away from "useless" questions.

          You're fighting fire with fire.
          Basically you're in on something your against. Have a grand ole day Hilary.

              I could care less how her name is actually spelled. The name Hilary can be spelled a 1000 different ways, the fact you understood who you were being compared to obviously got across.

    Geeez. I thought the answer to my question would be pretty obvious. You can make a lot of money dressing up as a chicken and singing "A-ha" hits from the 80's...

    As for your question, there's nothing to be learned by it. As Al said, this is a business, not something you turn to when you're desperate.

    So if somehow I were truly broke and down to my last $50, I'd bite the bullet, call up some friends and family and try to get a small loan to tide me over for a month or two. Maybe I'd sell some stuff I don't need. As a very, very last resort, I'd get a home equity loan or draw on my credit cards. There, now I'm not desperate anymore. But I'm not happy, because I'm in debt.

    Next step -- and you're not going to like it -- is to get a job. Thankfully, I have over 15 years of experience doing web development, DevOps and system administration. So I'd go through my rolodex of recruiters, shoot out a few emails and I'll likely have interviews scheduled for the next couple of days and at least one job offer in a week or two (though last time I quit a job, I had two job offers -- one a short-term contract and one a permanent position -- in less than one week).

    After that, I'd likely work for at least 6 months since most of the job offers will be 6 month contract-to-hire positions and I don't think it's nice to not finish a contract. All during this time I'd be saving as much of that $75/hour (or whatever I negotiated) to pay off my debt and get ready for my next venture. I'd also be thinking about different business ideas, looking for gaps in the market that I could fill. If I thought of something -- or more likely when I thought of something -- I'd just let the ideas stew for a while, allowing myself the freedom to consider other ideas that might even be better.

    At a certain point though, if I thought I had an idea that was good enough (and that's a pretty big "if"!), I'd get to work planning. Note that at this point, I'd still be working my other job, making and saving money instead of hemorrhaging it on an idea that's not yet ready for prime time. As the idea took better and better shape, I'd probably fit it into a Business Model Canvas, to make sure that I've really thought about the important facets of my business model.

    At that point, the path becomes less clear. A lot depends on what sort of resources I needed to get this venture off the ground. For instance, what if to succeed, I need more money than I have saved? Perhaps then it's time to do a round of "Friends, Family and Fools" funding. Or maybe the venture is small enough that I can continue to work on it in my spare time while I continue at my day job. It really depends. In this hypothetical world you're building, I'd love the project to be really easy, really fast to develop, and extremely profitable on day one -- but we all know how likely that is to happen. Which is fundamentally why these very, very general hypothetical questions are ultimately not so helpful.

    If you're starting a business desperate and with only $50 to your name you're at a huge disadvantage. It would be like going to a poker table where the ante is $50 with only $50 to your name. Sure, it's possible to win, but it's going to be really, really hard. You have no margin for error; you have no ability to bluff. You have to have the best hand every single time. That's definitely not a bet I'd take!

    Hi Chris,

    Definitely get a job. Definitely, definitely get a job.

    Here's why: desperation repels good, profitable ideas, and successful people online who'd expand your presence, and it even repels more money. At least in almost every case.

    I once went down to 4 pennies in my wallet. That's it. I attempted to work my way out of the hole with blogging. I did make it out. 6 years after the fact. But even then, I still am working to root out poor money limiting beliefs after crafting a neat lifestyle.

    When I did have 4 cents I thought I'd go hungry because I hid my financial chaos from everybody. Being worried about food, and losing all I owned, from car to apartment to....everything save my laptop and wallet, I could not conceive making anything more than $5 or $10 because I was paralyzed with fear, trying to survive. Totally irrational, but that type of fear always is.

    As for this hypothetical person, I'd say for them to be honest about how they have $50 left to their name. The honesty would reveal some deep past trauma related to money, or related to some deeper childhood experiences, and I'd advise they root them out through meditation, EFT tapping, contemplation, and feeling out the pain. Then, after feeling the pain, they should probably get a job,because making $35 K or $50 K or $70 K a year, so they can save $10 K or 20 K or whatever....

    ....then, they can move into prospering, confident, biz-building, clear, bold, patient actions, to grow their business.....the same acts that someone with $50 to their name can rarely move into, because their desperation blocks all the ideas and stuff, and leads to ruin.

    Just adding my 4 cents on this one Chris

      Ryan, very good post.
      Appreciate your intellect.

      As for the rest let me give you a little advice.
      Never shoot down anyones question ever. Recently a reporter/journalist asked "Bill Gates" for advice on what he would do if he was making only $2 a day. His response? Well he approached it maturely as a civilized human would. If a Bill Gates has time to answer a question so hypothetical then I'm sure any of us average joes can do the same, while not crying about doing so.

      Hi All Warriors,

      Being compassionate never hurt me. Especially in cases where someone has asked me a question I've answered 2,000 times. Which has been the case during my blogging career.

      If you help people, and more importantly, try your best not to hurt them, you can craft an absolutely amazing lifestyle for yourself while avoiding the annoyance, stresses and anger that handcuff most people online....from Big Dawgs, to small fish.

      Just a friendly add after I finished reading this thread

    I understand what you are going through.

    But if you are at your last $50, you have to start applying to jobs. Yes it sucks, but $50 cannot hold the average person as much as it used to decades ago.

        I understand what you mean.

        The hardest thing sometimes is getting that income, but it makes life so much easier once you have something as a cushion.

        And hopefully if all goes well, I'll have a few jobs lined up before I move down south and get out of this money problem I'm in.

        I've read a lot of the comments on here and I'm actually quite shocked. The number of people posting about what a stupid, pointless question this is.... Really?? If this question has been asked in the past, is it not a good thing that it's been asked again?

        I also think that resorting to picking people up their spelling is nothing more than online bullying. Is that really the impression of yourself that you want to give to potential customers?

        If the question was changed slightly to "if you had $50, how would you start making money TODAY" I think it makes a lot more sense.

        Things in IM change all of the time, and it's when people stop inquiring about or challenging the status quo that things become stagnant, dull and boring. If we didn't, the industry would never grow or develop.

        What works today may not work tomorrow, and what doesn't work today may just work next week.

        To the OP, I hope you find an answer, although I know I didn't contribute towards it.

          I'm glad you came with some enlightment. People tend to forget this is a resource forum. Things will be asked many of times.
          I don't mind being bullied online, it shows character issues and major insecurities in others.

          I do enjoy learning and noone wiill stop me from doing so.

            I've waited a bit to ask this, but now that there are several dozen replies to this question, what exactly did you learn? And more importantly, how is what you've learned going to affect the way you approach your current business (if you have one) or building a new business (if you don't)?

            A lot of people (myself included) responded negatively to your question originally not just because the question has been asked dozens of time (which it has!) but also because we don't feel this sort of discussion is likely to lead anywhere useful. To me it seems like a distraction from asking and engaging with the types of questions that actually might help a questioner with a business and help others learn from the questioner's experience. This is especially true since you've since revealed that you're not broke, you have a good job and so this question doesn't really apply to you anyway.

            That said, I'm certainly open to the fact that different people at different points in their entrepreneurial careers may need different types of information. So if you have learned any lessons from this thread and if these lessons will help you with your business, I'd love to hear about it.

              I think the big question is why do you continue to comment if you have no interest in providing any insight rather than your opinion that the thread should not have been started.
              Move on, that's the thing about the Internet!

                  I'm not complaining to anyone about anything. Clearly you can look back and see me thanking people that have commented with an actual care to do so. I enjoy this forum and the people that are here to actually help.

                  And if people would so choose to not like me and my reputation is "tarnished" then that's something uncontrollable.

          The fact remains that if you are lazy, like the OP was, and don't even search for previous threads pertaining to the exact same question (I found 3 in less than 2 minutes), and start "hypothetical" threads that provide no value, you will always get slammed and deservedly so.

          Had the OP done his research, he'd have been able to post a much more intelligent question. He also would have likely received better responses. Most people here are genuinely helpful when we're not talking about hypotheticals and other time wasting shenanigans with people who haven't even done their homework.

          In my opinion, you cannot start an online business with $50 without starving to death before you make any income. I believe that was the theme of the 3 other threads which asked this same question already.

          People hate these questions, not only because they provide no value, but because they breed more of the same uselessness. Tomorrow the thread will be "Where can I invest $67?" You see how annoying this becomes?

            I appreciate your input but won't accept you calling me lazy. You may feel so but until you can actually concluding evidence in regards to that you're in the wrong my friend.

            Like I said earlier, this is a forum.
            A public one at that and anything that wants to be asked may be asked.
            Another thing, I'm pretty sure nearly everything "IM" has practically been discussed here at some point so practically you're saying if it's been discussed before then it simply shouldn't be brought up again.
            If you want in print answers to a question with no input you would go to a book, if you'd like different, new, and subjective opinions then you resort to a "forum!"

            Also, who's to say that my "new" thread on this already spoke on subject wouldn't catch a new eye of some new poster or board member that could provide some "new" input.

            It all comes down to people pouting.
            Let it go, because it's going to happen again with a new subject and with a completely different person.

              I also noticed that you did not offer what you'd do?

              Have a non-hypothetical question to your hypothetical question: Why would you let yourself get down to $50? Why not do something way before your income stream actually stops?

              Me, if I did end up with only $50, I'd go to the social security office and apply for food stamps (it's free), get on the phone and call some employment agencies, sign up on monster.com and indeed.com and start applying for jobs.

              But $50 doesn't go far where I am. If you're in a place where $50 is two month's worth of income, you might do things differently.

              The real question, and most people miss that and they give you long lists of things that can be done, is not what you'd do but what and how.

            Just do not respond and the thread will sink to the bottom and people get the message.

            What value do you bring ranting in a thread that has no value?

            Why are you even worried about what someone might post tomorrow? Are you forced to read every post here or do you have a business?

            I find it annoying these threads get bumped by people offering zero value, just to rant about threads they don't want to see. (while bumping the thread over and over)

            BTW... how many comments are people making scolding people to use the search function!! Then complain because the threads are annoying to go through and you can find the topics that interest you.

            ROFL!!! Seriously, use the search function you are talking about then. It is obvious you do not use it yourself lol.

    Whoa, this thread almost makes me want to pull up a seat, grab some popcorn and watch the drama unfold. To be frank, if I was down to my last 50 bucks I would probably go out and make some quick cash or do some freelance work to build up my bank balance quickly. It's usually feast or famine and over the years I have realised that you need to stash cash for a rainy day so you never get caught. Being proactive and little marketing for my own business usually brings a stack of work in and reminds previous client's to get in touch. I look forward to following this thread

    Wow, interesting question and interesting comments.

    I agree - first things first. You have to ensure you keep a roof over your head and food in your belly and the same for your family. If you're down to your very last $50 and still able to retain a roof over your head and food in your belly for you and your family and meet all the necessary bills; the $50 then can become an investment.

    What's clear is you're not saying whether the above is already sorted. If they're sorted then the question becomes a totally different question.

    Yes, I agree - the question may have been asked numerous times for Warriors using their own words to ask the exact same question. However, no question is a silly question - regardless of how many times it has been asked.

    If people want to state it's been asked numerous times - how boring - then please do the questioner the courtesy of providing the relevant links to similar threads so the questioner can undertake the relevant research please of these threads to gain further ideas.

    Every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of whether the question asked appears to be similar to others stated and has been asked a million times. I also agree, things in IM change very quickly, hence what members may have even undertaken 6 months ago may not be viable in today's IM climate, hence we need members to continually ask similar questions so current information is continually provided to all members, not just to the questioner.

    In answer to your question:
    If your roof, food and everyday bills are covered and you know they will continually be covered, be this via a day job or whatever; and you're down to your last $50 - which could be the remaining balance of your savings to put into IM, then my 2 cents worth is. Will it work, who knows, however, I don't claim to be a genius when it comes to IM stuff and I'd love you to test it out and then reply on this thread as to what you're results are.

    Buy a domain name : cost $15 - have the domain name forwarded to an affiliate product which you can promote.

    You now have $35 left. Keep this in the bank.

    Hope onto Reddit, YouTube etc. and set up free accounts and promote the hell out of the link (with your domain name) to drive traffic to your affiliate offer by engaging people. Hell even open a free Twitter account if you like and see whether this will assist also.

    Do a review video of the affiliate offer and upload to YouTube and again drive traffic to the video either via Reddit and/or Twitter. However be honest with the review giving good Pros and good Cons. Ensure your link is in the description of the video. (Whilst I've yet to fully investigate Reddit a lot of Warriors swear by this platform to drive heaps of traffic to one's site, hence why I suggest this.)

    Yes, you can go out and get a day job, however, depending on where you live, this simply might not be the be all and end all - many people are losing their jobs these days. So if you're in this situation, simply allocate some of the time (apart from continually to look for a day job) to drive traffic to your affiliate product. Whilst also undertaking a full review of your talents and skills.

    Ensure you choose wisely. Check out Clickbank and JVZoo - free to join - Clickbank is easier to promote vendors products as you don't have to apply. However, also check out Muncheye for an upcoming product launch that resonates with you and simply apply to be an affiliate for the product.

    Forget paid traffic at this time as $35 is not going to cut it. Forget web hosting at this time because you usually require 1 year's hosting fees upfront - so at this stage you can't spend the $35 this way in order to develop a landing page etc.

    Whilst you're on a roll, then you can start developing your IM Business plan and also a financial plan which clearly articulates all you hope to achieve, and the projected costs to get there; work backwards from the end goal ensuring you article the preceding step until you arrive back to the start. Now you have a plan and a step by step action plan to start implementing.

    Once you have sales coming in: rinse and repeat the process, until you have more $$$ of capital to outlay in your new online business - simply one step at a time.

    Another option is of the story of a person in a similar situation; he bought a dozen roses and sold them to couples in a restaurant and gradually built a whole business around this one action.

    Hence it's more about making a decision and then taking action. Who knows there may be a small gap in the offline world that you could put that $35 towards - thereby as they say - spreading your risk.

    Good luck. I hope you do ask heaps and heaps of questions and I hope Warriors regardless of whether they've read the question many times before, treat your questions with the respect it deserves and provide some of their ideas.

    The whole idea of sharing is that people come across things that work for them, or they see things differently and by sharing these ideas and perspectives become invaluable for all.

    Hope this assists.

      Thank you once again for the replies. Truly enjoy everyones hypothetical last resort go tos. I'm not in this situation whatsoever. I'm doing well for myself in my current career field. I'm trying to make make side income via online so I've been roaming around for the last year in the half by learning as much as I can about im, webdesign, and so forth.
      I've always been a good writer in college and have excelled in sales in prior years so I want to transfer that over. Currently I have two sites which redirect you to affliated products that I promote. I post Facebook and Instagram quotes that speak on success and the right crowd comes along and I slowly direct them to the links. It's a learning process for sure but in time I'll be there. I always recently launched a blog for aspiring Entrepenuers. This blog is a place for people to go for advice, lessons, how tos, and many other success things. I'll be interviewing a successful business person once a week on the site also that I'll be posting. In the future I'll be adding podcast.
      My hopes in the next three years would be to monotize the site. So what would I do with my last $50?

      I'd use it to buy my child a meal and the rest id use to gather garbage bags so I'd have something to put aluminum cans in so I could go gather cans on the side or the road .

      My ultimate goals are to be able to run my two affliated links to intake $1000 a month between both and also to get about 5000 subscribers to my blog.

      Sorry for any grammer issues, I'm writing this while in a overcrowded working environment with 90 eyes watching lol.

      Bless you all, and remember to allow all and any question to be answered as they come. I've been following this forum for quite some time and yes I've seen this thread posted before, and I wanted to ask it myself personally. I've watched many many many of the same things asked before, it's a forum.... With tons of different people, with many opinions, and a million personalities.

      50 is tricky, ill assume you can just put all debtors on hold for a few months like rent etc, and scam food.

      Would need to be a direct cash sale product i think so you can reinvest quickly. Jvzoo etc dont do that till you have rep. Most people would go with freelancing or coaching or something like that but you would be stuck keeping your head bouncing around completing work and getting work.

      Im assuming you want to bank 20k in six weeks from a standing start. Also assuming no contacts or list.

      $20 on domain and hosting:

      Ok first product

      Sell wordpress hosting - maybe get reseller hosting

      Plr courses - but this is tricky without screen shots of bank.

      Sell outsourced employees at a premium upfront. Maybe virual assistant for $500 a month pay them $250. Would get messy if they stuff up though.

      Leads- so do a landing page for loans, or solar or business equipment. Then get hot leads and sell them for paypal $$ to brokers direct.

      Fiverr- sell something simple here

      Advertising- sell ads in a network then put google ads on etc and take a percentage.

      JV services - so contact people that are having launches and then ask for a percentage for getting affiliates, then contact people with lists and ask them to promote the offer.

      Then traffic
      Bing- 600 clicks for you $30
      Solo ads $30 would get 15 clicks - bit too small
      Do a video and do youtube views - say 5c would get you 600 from $30
      Do a video and do facebook views say 2c initially would get you 1500 views.

      So it would be a double down senerio- first day $100, then 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, 6400, 12k, 20k.

      Ha, or you blow your thirty and have no sales and its all over day one!

      Ok if that fails do a powerpoint of a business idea and raise 50k from a high net worth and pay yourself out of it.

      Probably the easier way. Give the
      Investor a percentage of the company etc.

      Any oher ideas on cash up front goods you can advertise at the right price? Or if you have better plans? Or think these wont work?

      let me add to it..

      In the Car Podcast - ask your rider permission to record the conversation and start a podcast. Or again, make it a one person show and do it while you wait for a customer.

      I feel compelled to say something completely honest. As I sit here just after pulling the top of a can of beef ravioli and eating it cold with a plastic fork, the only thing I had to eat in 24 hrs. I have a question? With the $23 I have left to my name , am I really going to buy a domain or start a blog. Um , no. Every beat of my heart feels like another second off a clock that is running out. The last thing on my mind is what niche should my blog be in?

      Most of you have no idea what life is really like yet you think its funny to call someone lazy or to say end it. I've tried fiverr and freelancer nothing. I've spent 3 months responding to ads for web design with a portfolio.(I out source ) and got 1 job for 2 days. The ads I place get flagged. I've cold called (been hung up on) and emailed too. I bought a bundle of domains worth 100k turned out to be all bad! Go ahead and laugh at the dumb newbie. I bought 5 websites and started marketing , great. My server got hacked! Not great. I never backed up my files. Can I laugh with you? I can't fix anything because I need to hire people. I'm well aware I dove into a world I knew nothing about but I feel you either pay to for a college degree or you pay to go to hard knock life university. I own a real company and had the money so I didn't care.

      Then I blew my back out in Febuary I can no longer work every day. I'm in constant pain. So here we are with no back, no plan that has worked out and no future. I'm going to lose my house and car. I have not had internet since before I joined WF. I use my mobile which has 1.47 gb left on a prepaid plan. Even a WF admin threatened to shut down my account for saying thank you instead of using the button. Which is not available on my mobile screen. FML. Everything kicks me in the nuts. Well 2 days ago ($57 in my pocket ) when I saw this thread and hoped for maybe something. I saw the usual smartass remarks. Instead of , well I don't know because I don't have the answer.

      I created 2 shirts on teespring because its free and started marketing it for free but haven't gotten any sales. It got 16 views through YouTube comments and ads I placed and a couple tweets from accounts I created just for this. Still trying.

      So with my $23 left, I guess I'll try to sell some of my tools. Will I start a blog? No I'll buy some food and try and live a couple more days. I have used the friend and family card and they don't give a shit. My own mother doesn't ask me "did you eat today?" But she has no problem asking if I have money for her. Wtf?? You really do learn who's got your back when your down

    If I were to only have $50 and I needed more money, I would spend all of that money on scratch off tickets, I would probably end up losing more money, but if I tried to use $50 to use on IM, I would probably starve to death before I make any good enough money back lol. That is imagining I didn't have any of my actual businesses, from which I can make money at no expense.

    I turn $10 into a hundred over and over again. $50 is a lot of money if you know how to use it. YouTube is raw power, find a low competition keyword that gets like 300-500 searches and enter that into lsigraph and then build a list of keywords that get a combined search volume of 3,000-5,000 searches a month. Keep in mind that you still haven't spent any money yet. Make a video for each of those keywords while adding all the keywords naturally in the video description of every video, add all those videos to a playlist named after your niche or main keyword. Find an offer, cpa does well with YouTube. If you can't make money doing this then you go get a job. Rumor has it that YouTube is getting more searches than Google, which makes sense to an extent. Make 10 videos a day and take that $50 and one month of Fcs Networker and blast the videos. Anchor 50% main keyword keywords and 50% url. Use to blast 100% keyword anchor text but now I can rank videos just using the url as anchor text. Fcs Networker has a $27 plan discount somewhere. Spend $15 on indexification to index your links, spend your last $8 on Death by Captcha. Rinse and repeat.

    get a part-time job, get a steady flow of income and then contribute some of that into ad campaigns. Create landing pages, offers. The thing about online is that it is very inexpensive. maybe buying good quality traffic and ad space might be costly. If you test correctly you will profit.

    You could try out the Ultimate App Maker and go around to businesses around your area and convert their Websites to Apps. If you can copy and paste a link, you can build an Android and iPhone App.

    Sell the Apps for $100 each till you build up enough momentum to charge realistic prices of $1,000+. Every business would jump at the chance at an App for $100.


    Remember when every business needed a website? Now they are going to need an App!

    Find a gig on Craigslist or other job boards that offer immediate payment via PayPal. There are a lot of internet research, reviewing products/web sites, curating content that will pay once you are finished. I look for things that can be completed in a few hours. While, I am doing that, I am sending my resume out for long-term, full or part-time jobs, that have a regular pay schedule.

      .

      There is a SECRET, which I'm about to share. The secret?

      GET fast results, make money in 30 days.

      You can and will read scores of Warrior stories about how they chased shiny objects, bought WSO after WSO and spent years before the money flowed. I've always challenged their advice to newbs when they say it takes years of floundering and learning.

      NO it doesn't.

      Here is a 30 day plan to your first dollar and gaining the knowledge you build a foundation on. In an A-Z fashion.

      A) Get a cheap website. Prefer you get one with a free domain for first year, and the DOMAIN NAME does NOT matter. Quit wasting time trying to come up with a domain. The host should have CPanel and Softaculous.

      B) Get Dropbox. FREE.

      C) Get mailchimp. FREE.

      D) Watch videos in the CPanel on how to use it, mostly focus on the Files, where you can upload pics and use the WYSIWYG html editor. Forget abpout Wordpress for now, you can always install that later IF you decide to use it.

      E) Get PayPal and/or stripe for payments.

      Now, you have a place to post a PROMOTION and a way to accept payment.

      Then you need something to sell and/or a Capture page to begin building a list of prospects. Use the free templates for now in Mailchimp to create a simple form, a sign up page. What are they signing up for?

      Offer a free report, IF you have a subject and the fastest "niche" to choose from is from one in which you already participate and know about. Do you know golf, bowling, MMA, cooking, travel, writing...it really doesn't matter at this point. Something you know about or look at your most recent purchases, there could be your starting point.

      The object is use 2 hours a day for 30 days to get started and to try to SELL SOMETHING. Recently fellow Warrior Barb Ling brought in over $4.000.00 dollars through her offer of a simple ONE PAGE report, she had a dime sale, I paid 3.77 for it and was/am a satisfied customer.

      It shows you don't have to spend a lot of time to create something you can SELL. If you can't create a one page Hotsheet (cheatsheet), then look to PLR.

      Tons of that offered here,find some plr in your niche, whatever it is, to use to either give away to capture names and or to sell.

      Use your WF sig file to start promoting and maybe a classifed ad here or a WSO. IF you are going to sell to Warriors, get the Warrior Payment account.

      Also, join as many FACEBOOK groups as you can regarding the niche. Also search social media you are involved in.

      SEE, this process is one which gives you a FAST START, you focus on LEARNING the basic tools of IM

      You need a PRODUCT to sell (and a service can be your product).
      You need a PROMOTION, you have to create an Intersection where your
      PROSPECT can meet you and learn about your offer.

      Then, the secret sauce to the whole thing...TARGETED EYEBALLS.
      TRAFFIC, but traffic with an interest in what you have.

      You can buy traffic, use social media to try to generate traffic, use affiliate marketing to get and build traffic.

      IF you begin with a simple PROCESS which has you focus on

      Who is my ideal PROSPECT (people like me interested in cooking rabbits)
      Who may want my PRODUCT (101 recipes for rabbit stew, first, catch the rabbit)
      And who will find my PROMOTION via (ads, links, participation)

      NOW you have the foundation of any and all future IM projects you do, without the flounder, the spinning of the wheels, the chasing of rainbows and unicorns, the making gurus richer...

      A PROCESS which is repeatable and saves years of time IF you follow the Warriors who took years to be successful (because that is what they know)...

      And one which puts RESULTS, cold hard cash in your hand in weeks not years.

      Keep it simple, and you can probably do it all with that last 50 bux you have because you spent all your money chasing silliness and a greener pasture made green with horse manure...which you have already squished between your ever seeking toes.

      Try a tested and proven process for 30 days to get a foundation built, then scale out from there.

      GordonJ

      PS. Or don't. Your time, spend how you like.

    Hate to say it but if you're down to your last $50... Something went terribly awry lol. But if you're really trying to start out, I would search for a well reviewed method in a niche field ie:
    - Affiliate Marketing
    - PPV/CPA
    - Blogging Etc.

    Most sites required to be successful offer 30 Day trials to give you a chance to get your feet wet and find 'some' success.
    I'm currently doing it now. But luckily had a couple more bucks than $50 ... Good luck

      true, the only thing you can do to not go with a job is to max out a credit card
      and make sure you'll pay it back as soon as possible.

      So still needs a GOOD biz plan.

      One time in the 90's I almost went broke, just enough money to pay for an air ticket
      to this place where i bought handicrafts. Paid everything with a credit card, about
      20k - came home, went to my 3-4 biggest clients and gave them a good discount if
      they pay NOW. Was in the green after 1 week. So that is a calculated risk not a gamble if - IF! - you know what you're doing.

    Chris, good to see this went kinda viral, for Warrior

    These posts are actually excellent. They simply reveal how angry many Warriors are. Which is good, even though it feels sucky to feel the anger and annoyance in the moment. Because when you clear the anger you're free to step it up 5 or 10 notches on the success ladder.

      That may be a problem about using what is on a private forum! you have to get permission from the owners and then they may let you

      So let me get this right at the start you started this thread so you could write an e-book but forgot disclose this! not good form using all the warriors to write the book for you or at least 75% of it would have been better to come clean

    get some advertisement banners,
    this all could be done within 50$.
    And yes you will earn alot if you work 2 hours a day on it.
    for the hosting part, well that can be earned a dollar per month so that's not a big issue.

    Why not start a part-time job at the nearest retail store. Fast food store can also be good as you sometime get free food. The pay is decent and the work is also not that stressful. Save the $50 for food and other necessities as you will probably have to wait for your first pay. Avoid online marketing as the stress will surely make you go bold.

    I'd invest it in a $50 100% comission system then use free marketing to create some 100% $50 sales up to 1-2k then invest into a higher ticket system with a sales team, continue to drive the free traffic, running to both systems.

    50 syststem then = paid traffic funds
