If you had $100 to start a new business, how would you spend it?

I thought I'd ask one of our famed WAMA questions, as the title suggests:

If you only had $100 to start a new business, how would you spend it and what would you spend it on?

Bonus points for being hacky and setting up freebies too, ideally let us know what industry you're in so we can get some vibe with your expertise

Be as specific as possible - I think we can build some serious insight

    List Building, List Building, List Building....I'd start off with a monthly low end subscription to an autoresponder, set up a squeeze page, and search for a great free traffic guide...Once I start getting subscribers and payments....I'd invest my earnings in Paid traffic ( But to be honest that what I've been doing all along)

      How would you find a great free traffic guide? and if you were to set up a squeeze page offering people to download the free guide you found, I get how you would get subscribers, but how would you get payments? Sorry, just with the 'feel' of this thread I was/am hoping fo specifics? If you were to be so kind as to expand, that would be appreciated

        Just because you find something free doesn't mean you can legally sell it.

        Create your own guide (ex: Open Office PDF (Free)), build a landing page for traffic, collect payments with something like Easy Digital Downloads for Wordpress.

          Thanks for the reply. I thought you meant the free guide would be used to build a list rather than sell it.
          So create a guide and sell that at the squeeze page do you mean? Do they subscribe once they buy? Or do you need two products, one to give away to get the subscription, then one to sell them? Sorry just ive never quite gotten my head around creating a product and selling to a list, without the need to try and create something else to get them there in the first place? ...if that makes sense...?

            Something like a travel guide could be broken up into two parts. One to lure in traffic and two for monetizing.

            Example a travel guide could be both a pocket edition and full edition. Give away the pocket edition for the traffic lure and to get that traffic into a sales funnel. The full edition travel guide would obviously have a lot more travel info. to offer.

            Search Google for travel guide ideas, example: "travel guide" filetype:pdf These are only for ideas, do not copy word for word.

            Create the full edition travel guide and use that full guide to create the pocket edition. This way you're only doing the work for one product. The pocket guide would simply be copying/pasting snippets from the full edition travel guide. Plus this way sets the tone for the paid product/guide and is extremely consistent across both products (ex: branding, formatting, etc...).

            Keep in mind the free pocket edition travel guide has to be enticing or nobody is going to buy the full edition.

            Also consider targeting something very specific. Example, Michigan (US) is known for one of the best state trail systems in the country so targeting traffic that enjoys camping might be easier to convert into sales than targeting everyone that visits the state for different reasons and might not be interested in trails (ex: camping, hiking, ATVs, etc...).

            You really just have to jump in and and start testing. You can always revise the product as needed or tweak the sales process as you gain experience.

              In your experience have you built the paid product you are selling from scratch? Or are you buying it and then re-selling it? Or are you piecing it together from other resources on the internet?
              Just trying to get an idea of what other people are doing. Cheers

    Thanks for the feedback guys but to be fair, I'm looking to hear about something more specific and useful.

    What marketing would you spend the $100 on?
    What part of your website would you spend the $100 on?

      I would find a high yielding & converting offer in an evergreen niche (health / wealth / romance), then find a YouTube influencer in my niche with a major following and haggle for a promo video for $100 even if I have to do a percentage deal.

      The prospectors would go through an email grabbing page with inducing giveaways (there are loads out there), before landing at the offer. I would then have enough money to buy a domain and hosting for my product using the offers keyword etc and buy some decent traffic.

      Bingo up & running in 3-4 weeks.

    Easy, l would put the $100 into graphic elements that l could use to do flyers with.

    That would give me enough to create a few hundred over some months to then employ someone and possibly buy more stuff.

    Yep, l do flyers and fonts!

    I have already used this my opportunity and cannot say I failed. I used it to build up some income streams that brought me more than $100.

    If I were to base on my current situation right now, I'd spend the 100 bucks to do affiliate marketing using another program. So, I'll build a website targeting a narrower scope, stuff it with rich content, pay for more traffic and put affiliate links on it.

    I'd use the money to build another website and do some affiliate marketing in there. But this time, I'll be following my passion for fashion, since I know best what to write about (plus, I don't have to spend on content!). I'd spend the money on website building, traffic (social media) and email marketing.

    Easy.

    Use it for Email Marketing!

    Set 20 usd for a wso which repays you at least 1 usd in exchange of a free report (so u build your list, u cash back immediately some money, and then you can cash back also with an offer in the thank u page). Try. Or only a free wso and an offer in the thank u page (u cash back lower but u will have more subscribers).

    Then do some SEO and buy some backlinks pointing it in your tier-1 level: i mean web 2.0 free website like blogger etc, and some gsa backlinks (fiverr) pointing to them.

    Rinse and repeat.

            What happened to that grand plan?

            Frank
            I think the OP (WarriorForum) is trying to start a discussion where someone who's actually started a business on next-to-nothing turned it into a real business. You know, give beginners hope with truth behind it.

            However, a lot of the time it's sheer luck and living in a country where $100 is rent on a nice office for 6 months and a secretary earns $40 a month. Or it requires a lot of skill, imparting of which will take so long that no one will actually do it.

            I know of someone who took $100 to buy an old dresser and paint. They painted the dresser and sold it for $250. Every now and again, they rinse and repeat. But it's not a business... No systems, no way to get someone else figure what to buy so that you can sell it with a bit of sprucing up for 2 times or more your costs and no source large enough of used furniture...

            But, if they keep it up and get more involved, they could probably turn it into a business. But it would not be a business because they spent $100 wisely but because they set up a business later, with more than $100 (though some of it could come from profit they made solo.

            I think, at the very least, when you post such questions you should define the terms.

            What does 'business' mean? Silly question on some level, but useful.

            Surely, with $100 you're not expected to start a wedding dress shop. Though you might end up owning one if you're good at designing and used your $100 to buy access to somewhere where sellers of such dresses might see your designs.

            Anyway, a business, my definition, is something that I could sell (would have value to others without me working in it). My accountant thinks he has a business, because he's making good money and has a full-time assistant. But if he takes time off, the money spigot gets shut off. So, I think he doesn't have a business.

    I would put that money aside, find a part time job and wait until I have more money to start the new business.

    People think they can start a new online business for $100 or even free, and a lot of internet marketers promote the idea of how easy and cheap it can be done, but in reality, no one ever succeeded.

    Be as specific as possible - I think we can build some serious insight
    Step One. Google: PLR Review-Visit as many sites offering PLR as you can.

    Step Two. More research: Google: Public Domain Works. Bookmark several sites.

    So, you have researched PLR and Public Domain. Spent 0 bux.

    Visit publications.usa.gov and usa.gov/topics SEE some FREE info which can be spun into information people would pay for.

    After this research part, and knowing my own interests, I'd select a topic in an evergreen market (search Google for evergreen markets) . IF there is public domain or cheap plr available, I'd make note of the cost.

    I could buy a plr pack on Senior Fitness for 8 bux, find a lot of FREE public domain on seniors.

    OK, I've spent 8 dollars my market is seniors health/fitness.

    Next up a web site. GoDaddy- 12.18 gets me one year with domain. So far,
    I have 20.18 into the project.

    I'd create a landing page, oh the domain would be something like seniorsexylife dot com or something senior. Landing page would offer a FREE report, at this point sign up for an Aweber acct, first mo. free, then 19 a month so I plan on a two month "launch"

    so I'm committed to spending 39.18 to get started

    A website, an email capture page offering a free report, an autoresponder, then a specialty report on Seniors fitness...

    Now, I need some traffic. Probably try Facebook and maybe look for a marketer with a list already to do a JV

    I'd participate in groups, post at forums, and maybe do an adwords with any funds remaining. I may operate for 2 months, and maybe offer it for sale for 1k.

    100 bux isn't much but with effort, one can get started

    Marcus,

    Is this really coming from one of the admins?

    I thought self promotion was not allowed in the main forum - that's what the sig file is for. Members can also promote themselves in the paid forum sections. If everyone here starts talking about themselves, this place will be nothing but one huge spamfest!

    Besides, this topic has been worn out for many years. There are countless threads in the archives that start the same way . . .

    "If you only had $xxx and you wanted to start a new business . . ."

    Use the search function and you'll have an unlimited supply of answers, many within the past year alone.

    Most profitable marketers will tell you that success in any system comes from knowing and doing (executing) the details of a smart system over time. Explaining that in a forum post is unrealistic. It's why so many newbies fail - they think that reading about someone else's success is all it takes - never giving their own system it's due.

      Hey Steve, confirming yes this is my thread and yes it's coming from an admin.

      For the most part I'm curious about what people would do with the $100 in their niche to start something new, not after self promotion as much as I am after gauging what people define as an online business... that being said I'm being given more responses about how to build a website, then told to send free traffic to it with no real methodology behind it or an actual product or service to sell (which is the point of a business right?)

      That kind of information is what I'd value and you're right - people have to dig for it and it's not in plain sight so current experience is "it's easier to just ask".

      It's giving me some ideas for how we should approach segmenting information, let me know if you've got some ideas on this too!

      Looking at past threads - there's some good ones for sure, but it seems like it's a rotation of the same content. Whilst we can't beat the classics of internet marketing at times, there are trends and unfortunately trends come and go.

      If you up for contributing something more indepth than a "just search for it", send me a PM, I'm all for it

    I'll get kind of specific. I love listening to podcasts so I would start my biz around that.

    A sort of podcast "tv guide" website.

    1. I would create a website that summarizes and disucsses the topics and key takeaways of different podcasts and shows. Maybe some Q and As with the podcasters themselves, top 10 lists, etc. Basically content rich site all surrounding podcasts.

    2. Through the site's content I would create a value add to then help me build a list. Like I said, maybe a "tv guide" of podcasts to find ones you would want to listen to.

    3. As the site grew I would look to be an affiliate for products pushed by some of the podcast shows. Help them sell their products and in turn take a piece of those sales.

    It's one of those things where you are already doing something, in my case listening to podcasts, so turning it into a business is much easier and enjoyable!

    I would get a .info domain for .99 cents.

    Use a free auto responder. There are 3 out there that will work short term.

    I would create a very enticing free offer.

    I would create very valuable you tube videos that lead them back to my offer using free screen capture software.

    I would develop a relationship with them.

    Than I would offer them products and services that are in alignment with their needs.

    This has only cost me .99 cents and I'm in business.

    Then I would test my offer with the video traffic to be sure it's converting.

    Once that's converting I would invest in paid tools such as a .com, paid autoresponder etc..

    Next I would take the profits and scale it up with paid advertising.

    Yup, that's what I would do.

        Mail Chimp is free until your list reaches a certain size, 1000 I think. They are as good as aweber or getresponse for *most* needs (I don't say more advanced marketers may be choosy). You don't lose anything when your list grows. I strongly recommend for newbies because it eliminates a cash drain during the early days.

    I actually started 2 online businesses with US$100 each. One failed and I'm currently trying to get the second one up.

    The first business is a dropshipping website and I spent slightly more than $100 to get it up and running but failed due to supplier issues. I planned to get the dropshipping business going by using my digital marketing skills but it failed in the end due to above mentioned reasons.

    The second business which is my current business is a blog where I spend some money on acquiring a domain name and buying a web hosting plan. I blog about my insights on blogging. My insights on blogging can be related to content writing, digital marketing etc. I hope my current business works as there's no supplier issues blocking me from making my this business successful

    Without being rude, $100 isn't that much. I would start by purchasing a domain and hosting, then looking at building a blog or website and looking at free ways to drive traffic to the website.

    To be honest, If someone can't start making money online with zero out of pocket they shouldn't ever spend any money, not even $100.

    Spending money without experience isn't a plan.

    The web is pretty generous, use all the free resources possible when first starting out. This forces you to be creative and no risk.

    If you have a website, create a great content and post it in Facebook and promote the post in Facebook witg proper targeting.

    If you do not have a website, create a webhosting plan and website with 30-40 USD and use rest of the money for Facebook promotion.

    Install Google Adsense and/or add affiliate marketing link in that post before promoting that post so that you can start earning from your investment.

    Purchase some domain names and park them on Sedo or some other site. this way you shall be getting income. During this time begin a blog site. Establish yourself. Use your blog and Facebook, Pintrist and other forums to link back and create validity. Once it rolls and feels right move on to using websites.

    The main thing most never understand or realize is that they need to believe in what they are selling or promoting to succeed. You need to find your niche and go for it with passion.

    I am in IM and MMO Niches.

    If i had $100 to start, i will go for affordable and good marketing tools website to get all marketing tools like autoresponder,squeeze page creator,link tracker etc..

    I know one service which provides all these tools for $9 a month and their email deliverability rate is as good as those professional autoresponders.

    Than i start to build a list through jv giveaway events.

    I know one secret jv giveaway organizing service which builds a list of 1000 subscribers in just 15 days without taking any headache of marketing.All you need a squeeze page and a gift to giveaway.

    The giveaway event organizer will promote the event for you until you get 1000 subscribers.It costs you for only $40!(Not Joking)

    I have tested these subscribers by promoting w+ offers and in one month i could earn $300+ affiliate commission from these 1k subscribers.

    I haven't given the links of these two services as these are my best kept secrets.

    But if i have $100 than i will do above things to build my list and making affiliate commissions from it.

    Than i reinvest to buy more such giveaway events.

        This entire thread is a joke.

        Too many people looking for get rich quick schemes and too lazy to implement half of what they know.

        If you have one marketable skill go to upwork and become a freelancer.

        When you start making good money, hire other freelancers to do the stuff you can't or don't want to.

        List building is about as simple as it gets.

        I was browsing one of my list a few hours ago, one very specific niche but I have a lot of interesting folks that subscribe.
        • One guy handles transportation for Guns & Roses (verified on GNR)
        • A lot of high school and college teachers/instructors (verified edu emails with names)
        • One guy that works directly for a top NASCAR driver (verified NASCAR driver domain email)
        • A scientist from MIT (verified edu email with name)
        • A few thousand small business owners (a lot of self hosted small business domain emails)
        • A few thousand hobbyist (usual free email accounts)

        The way I build my list is offer decent content (not articles). I personally created and use the same content that my traffic wants.

        The way I approach content is, what would I like. The reason I do this is because I've learned no matter what someone is interested in, there's always thousands of other folks interested in the same subject.

        It's not complicated.

        The vast majority slave away and only get an education from it, while a small minority make it work. Or typically make $500 a month from it.

        Then repeat, or at least try to!



        Yep, tried list building, same deal, not as easy as all of the BS gurus make out it is!

        I tried this when Adwords still allowed direct linking to a squeeze page, but that option is long gone. And easy to get the initial sale, but after that, no matter how many freebies you throw at them, very difficult to make another sale.


        That is the reality of IM, and as Frank was expressing, "if it is so easy then why isn't everyone doing it" (sic*).


        The reality is, virtually everything isn't as easy as a***holes, who make out if is, to line their pockets. And everything online is, (at face value) not viable, or cannot be made to work, effectively enough to create wealth from it.


        You have to try, try and try some more, then usually hit rock bottom to FINALLY see something genuine. Most give up when that happens, or long before that.

        After going through enough hell, and failure, and effort, and disappointed, and emotional stress and trauma, something that seemed impossible or nonviable, suddenly becomes the opposite.

        Adversity is the key to greatness, but most don't understand that distinction, and most work hard, and only get by.

        Actually, I've listened to ...let's just say A LOT of programs on list building and pretty much all of them say that:

        THE RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR LIST IS WHAT MATTERS...How responsive are they? Do they open your e-mails? Do they click? Do they trust you?

        I mean....I am all for bashing the big Guru's out there but at some point people have to realize that ....some students are not meant for online marketing.

        It is the same as in schools...Some have 100%, some 80%, some 30%...

        Everybody got the same information, BUT some people got 100%, while some got 0%.

        Does that mean the teacher was bad? No, it means one of the student was not a very good student.

        Also, a genius once said : "if it is so easy then why isn't everyone doing it"...

        Well, eating healthy is easy, investing 10% of your income is easy, making your bed everyday is easy, going to the gym is easy, being nice with people is easy, being organized is easy....BUT most people don't do ANY of these things...why? Because as I said, it is all a mental game. It really is. It has NOTHING to do with how hard the task it, it has to do with the limiting beliefs the person has, the mental resistance the person has....It's all mental.

      I think BigFrank, (in his seemingly antagonistic way), is attempting to state the obvious that it IS pretty impossibly ludacris to assume that a mere $100 could possibly create a sustainable business model, (via any medium - esp. the Internet).

      Then again, the OP never really stipulated it be a sustainable business model. Just What would you invest your $100 in?... which CAN be translated into a viable question; (by someone that has no real clue about business and only looking to indulge in a vanity 'hobby').

      The Consumer of today is just expecting way too much from Internet vendors than can be supplied with only $100.. and that's just fact. BUT, if you're just looking to "set up" the "possibility" of making a little chump change; (if you're extremely lucky); then sure... $100 can possibly, (if you're extremely lucky), start you out.

      Even with your well thought out approach (tyronne78), once those 150 clicks do not produce a 50% conversion rate; (which is like unheard of even by the biggest players on the Net); what do you do? The 150 clicks are GONE... and you MIGHT (realistically) have a couple 'fake' email addresses on your list.

      This is not negative. This is just smart business analyzation. If you don't have a contingency plan, you're simply planning for fail.

      That's why I said, (in my post), BE REALISTIC.

      Hope this helps,

      I would do exactly what I did...

      I would invest it in a good training program teaching me what to do.

      The first thing you need to do is lean a few things....You could search all over the internet to find answers or buy a coaching program...It really depends on how much time you have. I personally didn't want to waste any time, but I could have found everything for free on the internet for sure. This first step is where a lot of people quit, because there are hundreds of methods out there and it can get REALLY confusing.

      I remember when I started...I was so confused you have no idea...I had no idea where to start...I spent hundreds of hours reading stuff online until I finally decided to buy a few WSOs. Most of them were good and a few were bad, but overall I learned a lot and it reduced my learning curve.

      Then you have to execute like there is no tomorrow. This is also where a lot of people quit. Online marketing is really a mental game in my opinion. It is not hard at all..BUT, first you have to believe it is possible (99% of the people never truly do...even posters on this forum with thousands of posts) then you have to literally endure a lot of pain because learning online marketing is not like going to university...NOBODY is telling you what you have to learn, nobody is giving you deadlines...you are free to do whatever you want...and this is why most people fail. They end up with information overload and they don't take action. They slowly become part of the social club on this forum, have 2000+ posts and don't produce anything of value, other than bash other people and complain.

      Then you have to ADJUST because in the online marketing world, YES you can make a lot of money QUICKLY, but things are changing FAST. This is also where a lot of people fail...They make let's say $5k per month with a business, then they take it easy, live the laptop lifestyle then ll of a sudden, a change in the algorithm, a new law, their account get banned, etc and their income is now to ZERO.

      I'm telling it like it is. I used to be a financial analyst and I quit everything to pursue Online marketing and I don't regret anything because the money and freedom is great, but there is definitely a huge learning curve.

      But to answer your question, I would spend that $100 in a good coaching program, then execute, make money, invest in another one, etc until I feel like I master pretty much enough.

      In all honesty it all comes down to the individual and his mindset...Do you have a good attitude? Then if you have a good system and take action, don't quit, you will make it.

      If you have everything BUT a bad attitude, you will never make it. I mean...Just read this thread and you will see what I mean..No amount of money will help someone with a bad attitude, and no amount of posts also.

    Yeah I agree with Gary below! You want to start off with something where there really is no overhead and large out of pocket start up cost. For less than 30 bucks per month you can run an online business that can make you more money than any 9 to 5. A landing page or website, hosting to have that website online and an autoresponer to build your future warm traffic supply.

        I think the Idea that you must have a list is the only way is far to dangerous for the business , its like when you used to see the threads of the adsense spammers a few years ago complaing of the fact that Google has shut down there account

        If you rely on one form of getting funds via the net you will burn , need at least 3 ways and have back ups for them

        Money is not in the list but how use the list to make it , after all are we all not playing one big shell game here!

    LOL.. this is deep... I am one of the ones that helped found this forum and can't believe this question is still being asked this many years later; by an Admin, no doubt.

    Yet, for the benefit of those that are putting stock in the answers offered up.. I'll contribute; (and I use that word lightly).

    Yeah, that was my intro.. NOW, granted $100 to spend on a business really means you need to go back to the method in which you generated that $100 and generate some more!

    But, for those that are stubborn and still looking for some insight... here's what you do... sit on your $100 and do some research and learn how to build a functional web business; not just a catalog site. 'Cause see, you can't do anything on the Internet; (esp. these days); with just $100 if you don't know how to do the heavy lifting yourself. Period.

    I don't care what anybody tries to tell you; you'll just frustrate the crap outta yourself running into wall after wall because your WIX or WordPress free site isn't equipped to handle what MIGHT happen IF you're successful with whatever you choose to do. So you gotta know how to build, fix & tweak on your own. BE REALISTIC!!

    Once you've got some core web development skills under your belt THEN, (and only then), can you start to take advantage of something simple like niche specific drop ship opportunities; focused on products that a raving fan would be proud to show their friends. You gotta tap into people's passion.

    If you're paying attention you'll recognize that I said "opportunitIES"; as putting all your eggs in one basket with all the noise you're now competing with will only frustrate you and turn you into another failure statistic.

    1. Find a 'reliable' drop ship company
    2. Make sure they offer products that are sellable
    3. Make sure they accept PayPal as payment
    4. Try to make sure you're paying them and not the other way around
    5. Set up your "Business" PayPal account
    6. Make sure you have a post sale protocol in place
    7. Research & Pick a minimum of 10 niches to hit
    8. Drop a minimum of 15 products in the store
    9. Learn some valid SEO

    Tired, yet? You ain't even started...

    NOW, take all that and build another 9 stores just like it, (minimum)... DO NOT skimp... DO NOT cut corners...

    The idea is to think along the lines of assembly line... if you need more guidance than this then you need to do more research 'cause you ain't ready to run a business model.

    Peace, Love & Prosperity... hope this helps

    It's a great question and it's very true $100 isn't a lot to play with starting out.

    Basically, to start any business especially an online one, you will need to invest time and money into the venture. if you have more of one, you can reduce the amount of the other you have to put in.

    That's a fact and with online businesses you have the benefit of not having big overheads initially to pay for office rental, rates, furniture, staffing, utilities (electricity/water/gas etc).

    So it's a great place to start.

    With this much money, you will need to invest quite a bit of time initially.

    here is my suggestion;

    Build Your Own Digital Products

    Simple PDF reports - One problem One solution types
    maybe with over the shoulder videos.

    There are great free screen capture tools out there like Screencast-o-Matic which allows you to record your screen while you walk people through a fix for their problem.

    So what to create the product about? Something you are interested in ideally. If you are not in the Internet Marketing Niche that's ok too. There is lot of free information out there on YouTube and on forums such as this one where you could learn something others want to learn as well.

    Find something - implement it yourself, get some results, then teach it.

    Sell it on Ebay/ Amazon /W=/ JV Zoo etc/ Clickbank etc.

    You will be building a list (or following) too so potentially a very valuable asset and great opportunity for recurring income.

    You should be able to get everything set up for under $100 to get your first product out there and you can continue to learn and use free traffic strategies to continue to drive traffic until you have more money to invest.

    quick resource guide;
    [*]pdf creator - google docs - free to create pdf file from the doc file without watermarks etc. [*]screen capture - screencast-O-matic - free for up to 15mins per video[*]product graphics - my ecover maker has a free option [*]sales letter - a bit more challenging but there are loads of great free templates out there you can try. [*]buy button - simply pay a reasonably small fee to list on an affiliate network or get directly from paypal.

    That's pretty much it.

    take time to learn free traffic methods until you can reinvest in paid ones to scale more quickly.

    Keep learning the core skills I reckon rather than being tempted with quick push button stuff.

    That's my few pennies worth anyway.

    For the most part I'm curious about what people would do with the $100 in their niche to start something new,
    That's not really starting a "new" business.

    Here's something I'm doing right now:

    Without giving specifics and knocking my desired KWs out of range.

    I found a service some time ago that will help marketers "keep things straight." I'm creating a free report detailing the need for and benefits of said service. I have set up a short funnel that drives subscribers to the vendor site.

    I will drive initial traffic from Bing.

    I already have the domain, hosting, AR, etc. So the whole $100 will go to traffic. I predict $100 will bring in two buyers. The service is recurring so the LT value of each buyer is yet to be determined.

    Without my knowledge and experience, I could never pull it off.

    You can't buy that for $100.

      That could all be done for free. Nobody is locked into buying traffic.

      As far as experience, lets be honest, everything listed is on Youtube or Google Search.

    Step # 1 - Buy a domain ($10)
    Step # 2 - Buy hosting ($10)
    Step #3 - Install Wordpress on my hosting account (free)
    Step #4 - Buy an Aweber membership ($20)
    Step #5 - Create a piece of "pillar content" on my blog and hide it behind an optin form so I can build a list (free)
    Step #6 - Open up an account at Clickbank and find one HOT offer to promote (free)
    Step # 6 - Buy $60 worth of clicks on Udimi (a few vendors will sell you 150 clicks for $60)

    If I send 150 clicks to my optin form and get a 50% optin rate that's 75 visitors to my piece of pillar content.I might be able to get a sale or 2 depending on how great my sales copy/content was. If I don't I make a few sales I still have an email list of 75 people to build a relationship with. After that I would create content on a daily basis and email my list every time I had new on content on my blog. Most of my time would be creating content which wouldn't cost me a penny.

      MODS - please lock this thread. It's an embarrassment and a total time waster. Not one valid option presented because you simply can't start an Internet business for $100 and only a total loser would attempt to do so.

    Knowing what I know now and having the experience I have, I wouldn't start anything for $100. I would go out and get a loan for about $40K and that would be another post for another day.

    @Big Frank.

    Why lock the thread. Look up at my comment, I showed how to do it with Just a few dollars.

    The question wasn't how can you tell me this can't be done, but how would you do it.

    So, Big Frank, if you found yourself wiped out and only had $100 to your name, how would you do it?

    I would give you my comment #, but, it doesn't number them anymore.

      FYI - It's post number 28 on the classic view and your last comment is #90 unless a few posts dis-appeared. Guess you are on the Feed View.

      To the OP
      As far as a $100. in the past I have sold a lot of small stuff with less then $100.00 invested. Most are 1 off products that are not sustainable to create a business. All other things I have done, to make any profit has cost over a $100.00 investment in the beginning. Yet only a few over $100.00 could be turned into an actual business.

      What may work (Big if) is buying stuff at garage sales or off Craiglist . Then selling them on E-bay or Amazon. But you better know what you are buying, the cost of shipping and the profit to be made,to be able to re-invest in more inventory. This would take a very long time to scale. I doubt it would work in most places outside the US. IMHO

      I wouldn't. Why waste precious time on something that can't be done? Let's just say that we have a different opinion on what actually qualifies as a business.

        I'm not sure that we have a difference of opinion on what qualifies as a business. I do rather well.

        I just want to point out that; if I lost everything, I could start again with less than $100 and be back at $10k per month or more in 6 months.

        That's not impossible at all, as I could do it.

          ^^This guy gets it.

          It's all about the KNOWLEDGE.

          Even if I lost my list, my youtube channels etc RIGHT NOW, it wouldn't take me long to get to the level I am at...Because now I know how to do it.

          Oh, and this is the level of business I am at:




          Just one of my new little business...This is my Stripe account...My main business is Amazon though.

          Maybe this is small business compared to posters with 2000+ posts though...

          So, peeps, can we come up with the definition of 'business?'

          The question was, if you had $100 to start a new business, not if you had $100 to find a way to make consistent money or if you had $100 to create a job for yourself working for yourself.

          Because, it's a lot easier to create a job for yourself than to start a business. But, mostly, because some people are answering the first questions while others are answering the 2nd/3rd but saying business when they're talking about job. Presumably some are really talking about business... But what they proposed doesn't convince me. Not that it can be done but that it can be done with $100 or less.

          The advantage to all of you if you humor me? Enlightenment. Yours. Forever.

          So, my definition of business is: you've created something that has value even if you remove yourself from it, something that can be sold to someone.

          I don't care if the system requires only one person to work it or 79 millions employees. If there are assets (like physical things or patents or a series of steps that can be passed on to someone who, following them exactly obtains the same (or largely similar results), you've created a business.

          Also, I don't care that the business produces enough profit for you to cover all your expenses or not.

          Feel free to rip me to pieces: I'm in better mood than I deserve to be today.

      If you have one marketable skill go to upwork and become a freelancer.

      When you start making good money, hire other freelancers to do the stuff you can't or don't want to.
      True, this thread is full of newbies with SOS, we can try to tell them it is not as easy as it looks, but they will go on their merry way, and probably get nowhere, apart from learning what doesn't work.

      But l agree that hiring freelancers to do your dirty work is a good idea.

      True, when l first started out with flyers, l bought about $50 worth of graphic elements to do my first flyer, that was rejected, along with another 8.

      I have invested about $500 into graphic elements, and $650 into a decent font creation software, since then.

      You could start out with $100 and go to Fiverr, it would probably take years to make a few hundred a month from it, and you would just be creating a job, so, not really a business in the true sense of the word.

      If you want to create wealth asap, then it takes whatever financial obligations are required, and what effort is required.

      Then again, the OP never really stipulated it be a sustainable business model. Just What would you invest your $100 in?... which CAN be translated into a viable question; (by someone that has no real clue about business and only looking to indulge in a vanity 'hobby').

      The Consumer of today is just expecting way too much from Internet vendors than can be supplied with only $100.. and that's just fact. BUT, if you're just looking to "set up" the "possibility" of making a little chump change; (if you're extremely lucky); then sure... $100 can possibly, (if you're extremely lucky), start you out.

      Even with your well thought out approach (tyronne78), once those 150 clicks do not produce a 50% conversion rate; (which is like unheard of even by the biggest players on the Net); what do you do? The 150 clicks are GONE... and you MIGHT (realistically) have a couple 'fake' email addresses on your list.

      This is not negative. This is just smart business analyzation. If you don't have a contingency plan, you're simply planning for fail.

      That's why I said, (in my post), BE REALISTIC.

      Hope this helps,

      Forget about Adwords their keyword costs are so high now, only hub sites can afford it, and directing traffic to a squeeze page is long gone.

      SEO and SOCIAL MEDIA, long, slow, hard, probably painful, and probably a dead end.

      The key to get around traffic, is to seek out hub sites.

      The first thing you need to do is lean a few things....You could search all over the internet to find answers or buy a coaching program...It really depends on how much time you have. I personally didn't want to waste any time, but I could have found everything for free on the internet for sure. This first step is where a lot of people quit, because there are hundreds of methods out there and it can get REALLY confusing.

      I remember when I started...I was so confused you have no idea...I had no idea where to start...I spent hundreds of hours reading stuff online until I finally decided to buy a few WSOs. Most of them were good and a few were bad, but overall I learned a lot and it reduced my learning curve.

      Then you have to execute like there is no tomorrow. This is also where a lot of people quit. Online marketing is really a mental game in my opinion. It is not hard at all..BUT, first you have to believe it is possible (99% of the people never truly do...even posters on this forum with thousands of posts) then you have to literally endure a lot of pain because learning online marketing is not like going to university...NOBODY is telling you what you have to learn, nobody is giving you deadlines...you are free to do whatever you want...and this is why most people fail. They end up with information overload and they don't take action. They slowly become part of the social club on this forum, have 2000+ posts and don't produce anything of value, other than bash other people and complain.

      Then you have to ADJUST because in the online marketing world, YES you can make a lot of money QUICKLY, but things are changing FAST. This is also where a lot of people fail...They make let's say $5k per month with a business, then they take it easy, live the laptop lifestyle then ll of a sudden, a change in the algorithm, a new law, their account get banned, etc and their income is now to ZERO.

      If you have everything BUT a bad attitude, you will never make it. I mean...Just read this thread and you will see what I mean..No amount of money will help someone with a bad attitude, and no amount of posts also.
      Maybe coaching will work, but yet again!

      Followed plenty and you know what, most gave out advise with a dripper, or milked their subscribers as much as possible, at least til so many people started leaving that they finally did a live example of a successful campaign, or tried to.

      Yet again, the get a mentor idea, will probably waste months or years, til you get this!

      THE RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR LIST IS WHAT MATTERS...How responsive are they? Do they open your e-mails? Do they click? Do they trust you?

      I mean....I am all for bashing the big Guru's out there but at some point people have to realize that ....some students are not meant for online marketing.

      It is the same as in schools...Some have 100%, some 80%, some 30%...

      Everybody got the same information, BUT some people got 100%, while some got 0%.

      Does that mean the teacher was bad? No, it means one of the student was not a very good student.

      Also, a genius once said : "if it is so easy then why isn't everyone doing it"...
      Relationship with your list, geesh, l did a Frank Kern setup, used his free videos online for a squeeze page setup, then offered all free one online per week.

      Had a 70% optin rate, and good sales for the first funnel, then after that, no amount of free videos and advise would instigate another sale or it was frickin hard to get any more money.

      Gurus crap on endlessly about a list, but yet again, not easy to do.

It is true that many, and I agree with most, said that starting a business for $100.00 is probably not going to happen. Nobody claimed scam but gave the hard truth to the matter.

      Not many. Going to Fiverr, doing gigs for virtually anything, and slowly creaking another hundred or so, is your best option initially.

      I did that more than a year ago, worked pretty hard doing graphics for peanuts, but the work was fun, and the customers were pretty stocked with what they got from me, so....

      I eventually moved into Graphicriver, Creative Market and others; made almost $1000, and invested that into font software, and a battery for my old laptop.

      You may start to see, where l and others are coming from. It is all done in steps, and as Rich Dad, Poor Dad, (a great book) keeps saying you create income producing assets, then use that for frivolous things.

      Personally l tend to create income producing assets, then use that to create more or build on said asset. Then spend as little as possible on crap.

      An example is going to the Gold Coast for a week, (beaches, etc in AU) for $1,500 but l instead chose to put it into a new Laptop.

      If l had gone away l would have come back to a slow, Laptop with issues and 25gigs left on the storage, or memory.

      So l skipped the holiday, and have a fast Laptop or tool or income producing asset.

      Then l will use this to do flyers and employ someone to do more, then l can use that income stream to go away for a break.

        A members of the social club start bashing him. Telling him he is shit and he should focus.

        Watch and learn folks...This is an important online marketing lesson. You want to make your new subscribers WELCOMED. You want to provide VALUE TO THEM, not bash them and make them feel bad.

        You guys think this new guy will come back? Probably not! Because he encountered a member of the social club of course!!!

        They provide absolutely zero value, they just like each other posts and that's it.
        I was curious to see if you had read or took the time to read the WF rules?
        Because you have broken two of them in this thread

        Contributing to the Forum
        1. Excessive use of capitalization, special characters, colours or font/image size will result in deletion/editing by an admin of the title and/or body of the post.
        And I would also guess that you have read this one as well because you broke this one two

        Do not harass, personally attack, blackmail, spam or bully buyers and/or other Warrior Forum members.

        So the last part
        Violation of any of these rules by a user can result in a warning up to permanent account suspension. The course of action will depend upon the severity of the situation, the nature of the violation and past behavior.

        Now because you have form hijacking threads I will be asking that the admins take a good look at your behavior and what you posted

        And should any one else feel inclined to also contact the mods/admins it may not look good

        OH here is a link to the rules

    There's two forum profiles in this one thread ranting at everyone else and both of them are fixated on other folks forum post counts and both have the same hostile tone on their comments.

    You know who does that? The same person.

    Here's what I would do:

    - I would add $2,000 more... you can start with $100 but that doesn't necessary mean you should.
    - Then I would go and start a service based business, because that's the fastest way to bring in money.
    - When you go with a service based business, I would always do the research first in terms of, what demand the market has atm. As long as you have a high demand, you're in the green zone.
    - In order to find a solid market, I would research what type of problems people have (small business owners for instance have not that much time to care about their advertising or generating new leads etc.)
    - Then I would solve that type of problem with my service based biz.
    - There are several ways to find those type of clients, you could cold call, cold mail, use different sort of content marketing strategies, you could jv with others etc.

    That's basically how I would start... hope that helps.

    Cheers

    D

    Had Marcus written the thread in the way of the brief he PM to me there would be a whole lot of discussion going on and very constructive as well

    But it came out like a newbie question that we have see many times over the years

      That's a good question.

      Thanks
      Another good question.

      Fastest way for you perhaps. But again, you only get $100. Do you think it's impossible to set up the model you discussed for less?

      I have a neighbor who just set up a business in the last 6 weeks - service based, and she did not have a hundred bucks to kick it off but she has clients and monthly income now trickling in. But I'll tell ya, she is on the flipping phone driving in sales calls the bulk of her day.

      Bonus points for being hacky and setting up freebies too, ideally let us know what industry you're in so we can get some vibe with your expertise

      Be as specific as possible - I think we can build some serious insight
      The problem with this question (well, just one of them haha) is that there is a request in it to give up what industry we are in.

      It's flawed in that the goals of each person here are extremely varied as well.

      Assuming the business we are setting up is to be considered successful, when exactly is the success point determined? Is it simply a "double your original investment" or is this "make enough monthly income to live happily ever after"? Or just as one poster suggested to create something that can be sold off?

      The mere $100 investment factor is not enough of a challenge IMO - as others have also eluded to what knowledge they may or may not have going in.

      Some are smart enough to realize they need more education, some are wise enough to know how to do all of this with no start up capital.

      If it's a requirement to spend the money on the actual business itself, then for me I'd probably wind up going to the local dollar store and buying some bulk of something, pairing it with an ebook or guide of some kind that I've written or created, and slapping the package up to fleabay - of course not without some initial research to see what is selling and figuring out how I can sell it better and for more. That can be expanded upon with profits going into getting some product from an original source, branding that up, and tossing that into amazon. From there it's expansion of the product line of course.

      I'm partial to selling physical products that are useful along side some knowledge that can help consumers get the most out of what ever it is they've bought.

    I would spend it on building my list as well as later on when i got more money to spend, learning more about good ad copy writing as its crucial when it comes to making money from a list.

    Hi All,

    This thread is now closed.

    I started this thread as a hypothetical and truly - was not meant as 'be all, end all' guide.

    It's clear that this brought to light topics questions that doesn't resonate with all members, which we do expect. That's what causes a discussion and the more constructive input we (as a community) place into these discussions, the better the outcome.

    It's always been the case and it's ceased to change.

    We wanted to challenge the creativity and wisdom of the best internet marketing minds for the benefit of everybody both newbies and experts alike. There's some good responses here, but due to the flame wars and lack of constructive conversations - you have to dig for those good responses.. a common problem that is commonly raised.

    These discussions give the opportunity for new marketers to engage in a world that they have not seen, marketing tinkerers/small business owners to build their knowledge and for the successful to continue building their social authority.

    However - it is not acceptable on the Warrior Forum to flame new members, existing members or any member of our community. If you have an issue with them - take it up privately.

    There is no need to be polluting threads with responses that hold no value, and inevitably decay the constructive purpose of these discussions (as displayed in this thread).

    This pollutive culture prevents us from growing as a community. Our moderators work hard to keep the forum clean and this pollutive culture negates the ability to support members in need.

    It is our communal responsibility to silence the bashing and trolling, and endorse constructive conversations with our own input. We're taking the necessary steps to improve the experience of being part of our community.

    Thanks to those who have contributed some constructive feedback on this thread.

    Warm Regards,

    Marcus W K Wong
