45 replies
I'm about to quit my day job and I plan to do Internet Marketing for full time.

Let say I have only $100 right now, what should I do and where should I invest?

I really hate my day job.Keep doing things that I don't like.I wanted to be
free.But first of all, I need some good suggestions from all fellow warriors.

I had been lurking around this forum for quite a while.And I had learn so many
things from this forum.It's been such a great place for me.

Thanks warrior.

    I would stick the $100 back in my pocket and research this forum as much as possible.

    Do keyword research and find good keywords
    Write articles at night, or write content for your sites
    If needed, write for others and get some more money
    Invest in backlinks to your sites (use the $100 now)

      I agree with Joe...stick the money back in your pocket...if you don't know what to do with the $100 then chances are that your going to crash and burn the first time around...we all did....you learn from your mistakes and don't do them the second time around.


      Honestly the only thing I can think of mind in your situation would be PPC because of how fast that would be but.....if you don't have a site already then your really up the creek without a paddle.

      I plan to one day quit my day job too but not until I'm making enough side money first.

      It's really a transitional thing more or less and for me not so much of a jump and hope theirs water down there type method.

  • First, start looking at offering services. That is the best way to get INSTANT cash in your pocket. You can offer your services for $20 here at the WF. Save the $80 for whatever, and invest some of the revenue you are getting for those services.

    Then, start building WP powered sites and do some bum marketing.

    The best way to learn affiliate marketing is to have other people pay you to do stuff for them. They are paying you to do the things that make them money. You get to learn affiliate marketing and GET PAID for learning. Cant beat that.

      Azim,

      Re-read this post below and act on it. This is one of the fastest and safest way to get started online.

      If you can write in Plain English, just head over the warrior for hire section, post your thread with $20 and offer to write articles.

      If you can do blog comments, do that. If you can do backlinks, do that.

      Work for other marketers. Eventually, offer VA services, and learn what works.

      In the mean time, build your own business.

      Best,

      Franck

  • If I only had $100 to invest in my business,
    I'd go for the dollar trial of Aweber even though
    there are services I like better.

    Next, I'd get the $9.95 "Baby" hosting from Hostgator,
    and register a domain name with Namecheap ($9.29)
    even though it's more expensive than GoDaddy.

    I've just hear too many horror stories about GoDaddy
    and I'm a firm believer in there being fire anywhere
    you see smoke.

    Ok, so far we've spent about $21.

    The next thing I would do is spend $37 for the War Room
    membership because you're gonna need to run a
    WSO fairly soon.

    The rest of the money - about $32 or so, I'd buy a case
    of Red Bull from Sam's club and get started researching and
    writing articles to sell as PLR packs in a WSO.

    I would invest in 5 pounds of coffee.

    Put the rest in my pocket .

    Go to Yola | Create a Free Website and get me a free site with hosting

    Score a free autoresponder at Free AutoResponders | AutoResponders for Free

    Get my keyword research going on at Seo Book Keyword Suggestion Tool

    honestly the yola subdomain is going to be hard to rank for a competitive keyword but thinking into the future it will be good to optimize your site to a high searched keyword . You will upgrade to a dot com when you start making a profit .

    Go to OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite and get a free pdf maker .

    You will make a free report to give away to visitors for email addresses captured by your autoresponder . You will start another report with a step by step of your venture . Write down every little step... what worked and even what didn't .

    This will be leveraged into a product also.

    Use the keyword you are optimizing for in the title of the free report . Put the free report on a sub page also named for your keyword .

    Write articles using the keyword . You will use these articles for traffic as backlinks to a sub-domain will not carry over when you upgrade.

    Write 10 articles on your keyword and submit to a few directories . Point all articles to your freebie page . You may find some directories will not accept this for lack of content . These are not directories you will use just now .

    Now let them simmer for a while .

    Go to some traffic exchanges and make a splash/ capture page and build your list . Research your niche to the point you can present yourself in an authorative way .

    Teach your list what you are learning . You will lose some members that know more than you . This is okay . You will never sell to someone who knows more than you anyway . They are not your target for now .

    Find a related product that pays instant commissions . Put your (cloaked) affiliate link in all your teaching emails at te bottom of the page in your pS: file .

    If you are doing your niche homework ... you will notice you are not losing nearly as many list members . This means you are gaining authority through knowledge .

    Your list should be growing from the surfing .

    Now check and see which article is getting the most views but more importantly more click throughs and also which ones are ranked the highest in the serps .

    Link all your articles to the one gettting the most click throughs as well as your landing page .

    This should get you some more searches and also move the article with the most click throughs up in the serps .

    Bookmark all your articles on a site like propeller. Bookmark the feature article on as many social sites as you can find . If you understand rss feeds .. use them to your advantage ... if you don't ...study them until you understand .

    Keep repeating the freebies , articles ,bookmarks and surfing until you get about 2000 list members .

    Now compile your step by step and replace the instant commission product with your own. make sure that you do this slowly at first . Do not take a product that is converting completly away until your own product is replacing the income .

    By now you should be making enough money to start upgrading and maybe even outsourcing to an extent .

    Keep tweeking and split testing until you are converting at a rate that is paying you the money you need .

    Now start with a new product and do the whole thing again.

    Now aren't you glad you bought the big bag of coffee ?

      Hi Azim,

      Only you can decide on your situation as we do not have all the facts about your situation.

      For example:

      1) Do you have a family to support? - if so then most definately do not leave your job
      2) Do you have any savings to live off whilst you build an online income? Assuming here that the $100 you mentioned is for your investment into your business.
      3) What is your current knowledge base
      4) etc etc

      Lets assume you have some savings, have no family to support and little expenses.

      You mentioned you are good at Graphic design.

      Create ebook templates, graphics packages etc etc and sell on the wso forum. That will cost you $20.

      Build an opt in list from your wso buyers after investing in aweber (start with the one month $1 trial). You can then market your graphics design services to your list.

      Invest in the war room and learn more about IM. That is $37 (an investment you need to make in order to post a wso).

      You will now have some more money to invest (if your wso's are a success) whilst at the same time building your IM knowledgebase from the War Room. This will then allow you to build your IM business.

      Of course if you have limited savings and higher expenses stay in your current job whilst you work your IM plan. Once you have an online income close to what you require as a minimum level, only then consider leaving your job.

      Hope that helps.

      Riz

      To be honest I don't think $100 is going
      to get you in this business, that's about
      Ā£70 in my money.

      Domain Name - $10 p/a

      Hosting - $120 p/a

      Auto Responder (optional) - $160 p/a

      Website Design (optional) - $300 (one off fee)

      Marketing (first year optional) - $400 approx.

      The list above is just a rough example of the costs
      involved in running a proper website & especially
      for the first year, were extra marketing costs are optional
      but essential.

      If you want to build a customer list, then you'll need an
      email autoresponder & If you want to tell the world
      about your business, you'll need to spend some money
      on marketing materials.

      I have only started internet marketing in april 2009 &
      I'm planning a 20,000 local leaflet drop in january, promoting
      one of our websites.

      You can get away with low costs, but it's crucial to spend
      money on your business, or you'll never compete with the
      established businesses & never reach page 1 on Google.

    First, I would not quit your job til you have a stable income online. As much as you hate it, work on both for a while and then move over.

    Second, (I am being a realest here) I would keep that $100 because you may need it for bills or foods or other suggestions on starting a site. IM is a excellent field, however it is not easy to succeed in and make it. I guess 1 in 2500 succeed. Being here you have a better chance.

    I use to spend over $1,000 a month on Adwords (PPC), then I learned the BEST traffic is free traffic, I now get 100 times (literally) more traffic at no cost except investing my time on marketing.

    Do the following For Traffic:
    - SEO
    - Video Marketing
    - Article Marketing (which I do little of)
    - Document Sites
    - Question/Answer Sites
    - Press Release
    - checkout Kim Roach's 21 ways to get traffic (specially if you have a blog)
    BE CREATIVE. If you put out what everyone else does, you will only get that back.

    Cheers,
    Mukul

    First and foremost if you only have $100 to your name hold on it at first. I would start with affiliate marketing and free methods of advertising. You can get TONS of traffic and at no cost to you if you do this right.

    Blogging
    Videos
    Articles

    Just a few ways you can get a ton of free targeted traffic if you have more time than money.

        You've had a lot of people telling you what you should do, so here's what you shouldn't do:

        Don't:

        1 - Think that having $100 to start with will really make any difference in your ability to make money online.

        2 - Kid yourself that getting in to the make money niche is the best way to start.

        3 - Kid yourself that making stuff to sell as WSOs is a viable business model.

        4 - Listen to anyone else who isn't already successful.

          Some very good advice here from Andy.

          Andy on your 3rd point - that is very good advice. Making stuff to sell on the WSO is not a viable business model, especially if you are offering a useless product.

          However, if Azim has something valuable to offer, ie Graphic design, in his circumstance he can provide value to warriors whilst increasing his investment capital for other IM activities.

          Nonetheless Andy's advice is solid on all 4 points.

              Jaideep - point 3 is very poor advice.

              Advising someone to create make money ebooks to sell on the wso forum that the authour has not tested himself and is based on pure theory is not the right thing to do.

              Unless Azim has made money online or offline that he can share he should NOT enter the make money niche at this point.

    Shoot a PM with some of the graphics work you have done.

    Perhaps I'll give you a shot.

      Here's what I would do in a nutshell:

      $10 - domain name

      $0 - 30 days hostgator webhosting

      $20 - Quality PLR ebook (use as is or make some changes)

      $25 - Flippa fees

      Total expense: $55

      Sell for $97 to $147

      Total income: $42 - $92

      I think this works because I've been doing this myself, some people call this flipping websites. Good luck!

    I would go with the basics that you truly need and avoid the "bright shiny object" syndrome. The bare essentials would include:

    Hosting - around $10 per month (I'm rounding out these figures)
    Autoresponder - around $20 per month
    2 Domains - $20 (I'd assume if you were serious you'd want to set up at least 2 sites)

    OR

    Scratch the .com domains, but 2 .INFOs for around $2 from Godaddy and run a WSO ($57 total, since you're not yet a War Room member). That'd cost you just a smidge under $90.

    Paul



    So you have approximately $50 upfront expenses, with another $50 to carry you through the second month! Now I'd use every available free traffic method to start driving traffic ASAP since I'm out of a job now!

    My friend, I don't mean to sound like a pessimist, but if you only have $100 to invest into your business, you need to have someone wake you up.

    Here are my recommendations:
    1. Keep your day job and start saving every single penny. Forgo the pleasures in life for a while, if you want to be free. Spend a bit every month educating yourself. This will be your first business investment.
    2. Save up enough until you have at least one year of living expenses in the bank.
    3. If you are still with me, now save up at least another $10,000 to start your business. Tell your daytime job, bye,bye. The work now really starts.
    4. If you are still with me, start to learn as much as you can. and work damn hard at it.

    If you can put up with your job for a while, keep learning and investing into your online presence. Very few are a hit in the beginning and the majority of us have to kick down the door over time.

    You can do it, but it is not a quick fix or fast cash. It takes time and dedication.

    If you can keep up this formula, you will be a multi-millionaire in under 10 years, 5 if you are extra bright and dedicated. I will tell you that no job will do this for you. It took me too many years to learn that simple lesson. To believe anything else is a huge lie that you are telling yourself!

    Oh, the time that I mention does include the time you spend at your j.o.b. (Oh, job stands for just over broke!)

    Do you have what it takes? That's up to you!

    You should take the time in Learning Internet Marketing then applying the knowledge.

    For now stick the money back in your pocket,

    I'd spend it all on outsourced blog posts ... find a product (for free), become an affiliate, set up a free wordpress blog on an existing domain and post 2 posts each day.

      I think you should probably keep most of that $100 in your pocket.

      If you really, really want to spend on some advertising try some solo ads sent out to your niche. Or pay for a banner placement or link on a similar niche as yours.

      Focuse mainly on free traffic, writing articles, use youtube, forums, free classified sites, post short reports on document sharing sites, etc.

  • Buy admission to the War-room. That is the best investment I have ever made in my buisness.

    First of all, I would not recommend leaving your day job and jumping straight into IM! Just start working on IM on weekends and nights. If you have success then only quit because its not a thing that everyone can do. Also, many people make money but much compared to what a regular daytime job would be paying you.

    So, DONT take the gamble of directly jumping in IM. its a myth that its money online but in reality its the same effort online/offline.

    You've already received from great advice here (from the "Instructor," "Andy" and more) but I would start by recommending that you DO NOT quit your day job until you are seeing significant (and steady) income.

    After that, I think that offering your graphic services is a good place to start until you can work into a more "residual type" business model.

    One example for you to look at is Max's "Graphics Club Monthly" membership program. I pay $77/mo to be a part of this site and if you're a talented designer, there's no reason you can't do something similar.

    At the end of the day, a Positive Mental Outlook and dedicating yourself to taking Massive Action will help you find a way to reach your goals!
