    Send it to me. (You did ask my opinion!)

    You don't need to spend money yet.

    Figure out first how you want to earn money online. Do you want to build an Adsense empire? Do you want to produce an info product and put it on Clickbank? Do you want to build Amazon Affiliate sites?

    Pick something that you believe works, then learn all you can about it. At this point, you can spend $50-250 to get some mentoring ... (Ebooks are nice, but mentoring is far better). And when I say "mentoring", I mean someone that you can email your questions, a specific person, not some forum on a membership site.

    Your best bet is to get something working, then spend your money expanding it (buying backlinks, buying content, outsourcing, etc)

    Just my two cents worth...

    (Or my $1,000 worth of advice if you follow my first statement...)

    Find a hot niche or product and spend the rest of the money getting backlinks, adwords, and other methods to get traffic. Targeted traffic = money.

    Is that $1000 and no assets or are you already in possession of any domains, hosting services, memberships, software etc.

    I see that you are a War Room member, so you obviously are in possession of at least one asset.

    e.g. more info is useful.

      Well there you go! You can spend a portion of your money on outsourcing both your website design and content. This will be a good way to get you started.

      Personally, I would also invest in a mentor to help you learn to do these kinds of things yourself. I have always been a big DIY'er, and even though you may or may not be it is important to at least have a basic knowledge of what you need done in case you can't find someone to do it for you.

    Save your money. Lock the door to your office and spend three days learning all you can about list building, product creation, and niche finding.

    DO NOT pay a mentor that shows you a plan on how to get started in the IM niche. You should not be teaching others how to make money online until you have done so yourself. Plus, just about any other niche is easier to market to.

    It's actually a tricky question!

    Personally, I would find an established website for sale within budget and then try to monetize it (or increase profit if it is already generating revenue).

    If you want to start from scratch, you may aswell put $900 in the bank. It takes time and effort to build traffic and rankings, not start-up capital (unless you are talking $10,000+).

    Try to focus on topics you are passionate about, and if blogs is your IM interest, then spend $100 to get someone to design and build it for you.

    Good luck

    How about a thought experiment: stock the 1k away in offline investments, like bonds or a medium interest CD.

    THEN DUPLICATE WHAT YOU DID to get the 1k. You will now have 2k to invest .

    See what I did? Stick with what you know that works. Duplicate the results. Then you can start playing with buying new things or new niches when you have 10k. Hope that helps.

    Hey man, I'm thinking the same thing. I would get 1 year of hosting and domain if I were you. Then, I would invest it in buying a research tool although it isn't needed but people buy anyway and I would get Niche Finder. I like to keep everything a minimum of less than a $100. Then, just keep researching around, there's a lot of FREE systems laying around, you just have to find them. So, I wouldn't recommend you to buy a system. There's a lot of resources that tell you like everything you need to know to get started and I would have to say in my honest opinion that they all teach the same stuff but different people have different way of doing it. That's just me.

    Hold onto it.

    When you've come to a clear decision as to what your interests and skills are, and how you're going to leverage them in your IM career (i.e. what you're going to specifically do to earn money), you'll most likely come up with plenty of ways to invest the money.

    Really though, you can't expect anyone to give you a worthwhile answer with so little information. IM is not a cookie cutter type thing. Good luck.

        yes for me it requires blood sweat and tears x 2 and then more blood sweat and tears.

        But its well worth it in the end, if you have been good to your subscribers then you will have not problems selling it.

        But $1000 is a figure that can be easily spent fast, if you do not know what you are doing.

        be careful. and good luck.

        It depends on the product, if it's a report or videos then yes you can do them yourself. If it's software, themes, and other technical stuff it could take you upto 3 yrs to learn that particular skill, better to outsource it and spend those 3 yrs marketing.

    • If you have a $1000 dollars find someone that you can trust and has a membership site that can teach you how to make money online. Most Good membership will give you 30 days to try it out for $1 and what you can do then, is start learning, and once u see that it's of great value, become and affiliate of the membership site and use the $1000 dollars to start to promote the site. Make sure you learn how to get some cheap traffic. Once u do that you can make big money in a short period of time. Ex If you able to use $1000 dollars to get 300 people to sign up for a trail membership for $1 then after 30 days you will make, well let's say the membership is 39.00 a month and u make 15.98 per person you refer, well the average person will stay 3months on a membership site so, 15.98 x300= $4794x3= 14,382 then you can focus on learning how to setup multiple streams of income. And learn from the guy whose already making the money.

    Hey Jivens,

    I can tell you one thing and I'm 100% sure about it:

    There's no the best way to do it

    But, if you want an opinion from me, here it is:

    If you're new, I would get inside a coaching program.

    Jason Fladlien just launched his coaching program "6in6coaching" and it costs just $97 per month, which is an amazing deal (if you're interested in it, contact me and I'll give a huge bonus for it if you go through my link)

    So, coaching would be $97. You have another $900.

    I would get hosting account, AWeber (autoresponder), domain. That's $40.

    Then, I would start building my list.

    I would set up a simple squeeze page, and then buy solo ads. The best resource that I currently know for getting solo ads and also setting up ad swaps is safe-swaps.com, but it costs $25-$35 per month and I can say it's well worth it, because they have feedback system just like EBay has. Again, if you want to register, send a message to me and I'll give you a bonus if you go through my link.

    So you now have about $800.

    Before you buy solo ads, set up a thank you page and a page with your gift. When people sign up, you will take them to a thank you page where you have affiliate banners. That way you can make your money back immeaditly. You also have a couple banners on the page with your gift.

    So now go there to safe-swaps.com and buy a couple solo ads. Spend $600. For that amount of money you will easily get at least 1800 clicks. If your squeeze page does it job and you have an exit pop up, you will get 900 subscribers.

    Now you can start ad swapping. Use safe-swaps.com for that. It will make your life easier

    That's what I would do.

    After 12 months you should be making $4000-$8000 every single month from ad swapping.

    By the way, if you don't know what to promote, I recommend promoting Jason Fladlien, Lee McIntyre, Kim Roach. These affiliate programs will pay you a lot of money .

    Hope this helps,

    Matt Poc

    here is an outline of what you can do with $1000

    $100 - hosting fees for a year
    $100 - domain fees for a year
    $200 - autoresponder fees for a year
    $50 - The best spinner to help you spin articles
    $550 - all other coaching, courses and education. The purpose of education is to help your learn faster. You can do it all on your own, but it may take much longer.

    It depends how experienced you are in IM. It seems from your question that you have some doubts where to invest it so I would put it into some good coaching to tell you what to do with such money in the future

    Buy a profitable high traffic (5k) exact match domain name.

    (buylcdtv.com JUST for example)

    Then just use Driper to continually feed back links to it every day.

    Since it's a new site, don't risk pinging the back links via Linklicious.

    Let Google find it naturally.

    Then, once it starts getting good Google traffic, add Amazon links to it. Or a product of some kind. Or adsense, which I hate. whatever.

    Isn't that pretty much how this game works?

    Hi jivens,

    In my opinion, if I had $1000 to spend, I'd build websites, many websites.

    Or simply outsource them. It's kind of a hassle, because everything comes from diferent sources if you're thinking of outsourcing.

    I am releasing a service asap that includes your full site built and google #1 guaranteed. Anyway, just my 2 cents.



    Thanks

    I would say don't harry and jump into something.

    If you want to start from scratch take your time. I would consider develop something for website owners like a code (it pays better than own a website).

    If you into having your own website, try get an old domain that is expired will save you a lot of time and money. check dropday.com they selling expiring domains all the time. You can get it with high PR without working for it (don't spend much on the domain but you can give it a try).

    better than 2-3% the banks or ISA would give you

    2.find hot products that selling right now , get buyers for it first, go to a diffrent country where they sell it cheap and sell it to your own buyers

    3. Create a product that solves people problem and market it

    hello,

    Here is a business plan that you can set up with $ 1000 and even much less.

    1) made a list of what you like, problems you have, and the problems you had.

    2) Get an instant market, the main goal is to see what is in your list of interest to others, and finding market or there is concurrency.

    3) Create a product that you meet the problem of your target market. The goal is to create the best deal possible. Made creates the graphics for your sales letter, and the representation of the product by a professional. that's what makes the most capital gains received your product.

    4) creates or creates your sales site. this part depends mainly on your personal skills, do not hesitate to outsource what you do not know how.

    5) Make a joint venture with some people who have a large list, give 100% of profits, against the future ownership of the customer list. also put your product on clickbank, comission affiliated with the highest possible level.

    6) maintain your list by offering quality content regularly by email, this can be a simple email, ebook download, MP3, video, ...

    7) create a Wordpress blog, with other equally interesting content, and send your list dessu, each article was published. squeez also put a page to capture emails from visitors other than your list. (Suggest a new list to buy your first product)

    8) created a survey on google doc, and ask your list to respond to it. This survey aims to have the frame of your future product.

    9) creates the product you ask your list. And sell them your new product. (Varies: they offer a discount on your new product, against a deferred delivery, and pay a ghostwriter to create it for you)

    10) After a First Prev pass on your list, put your product on clickbank commission with the highest possible.

    11) repeat from step 6 and start over.

    You will not spend $ 1,000, but will have some expenses still to Aweber, your website, and some techniques you part subtracted.
