What do you think is the best way to invest my last $25.00?
I have read so many ideas and systems my brain is about to explode.
I really need a sensible solid idea that will work, i'm not bothered about putting in the hours but i do need to make something work right now.

Regards

    Hi Billy,

    Best way to get the most of your last $25.00 is
    to create a really good product and sell that as
    a WSO.

    Don't sell stuff in your product about stuff that
    you *think* will work but rather, stuff that you've
    actually done and put into practice.

    All the best!

      I will never understand why "run a WSO" is the "answer" when someone is posting they are trying to make money online.

      If you have $25 - keep it for now. Buying something else isn't an investment - it's a purchase.

      I have read so many ideas and systems my brain is about to explode.
      Info overload - pick one method/plan/blueprint from what you've read or bought and do what it suggests - do it thoroughly and ignore everything else until you have it moving along well.

      If you want a step by step to an online business, I'd recommend bloginferno by 60minuteaffiliate. Don't remember the price but it's a comprehensive WSO and should work well for those who diligently apply it over the long term.

    If you can write, you should buy Shay's $2 WSO and a pretty nice cigar with the change.

      You are so sweet. Thank you!

      I had to close that WSO for now because of the crazy response! I want to make sure I can help everyone who signed up.

      But I appreciate the endorsement! ((((((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))))))

      I'd do exactly the same, beside the coffee...
      Actually I would buy two domains, write content to them, let them grow, sell it... get the money and begin the cycle again... which would take a while.. lol

    I would stick it in the bank or give it to the local charity shop.

    Then I would spend the next month reading everything free on warrior... its packed with all you need to know. You don't need to spend a penny.

    The bit missing is taking action -> you CAN'T buy that.

        I have some good ideas, see my tags, but these sites need marketing and finishing, im useless at marketing and useless at writing content.....

          I bet you aren't useless at writing content! You can form a coherent post in a forum - an article is not that much different.

      I agree with the suggestions to buy a domain and hosting with that $25. Sign up to affililate products and link to them in your content/reviews. Like Rob said, you can't buy action...you need to 'do something' and it sounds like that's what you're ready to do.

    Hey, Billy!

    If you have read so much information, then you already have the info you need to make money.

    What you need is a change of mindset and to focus.

    You need to follow the advice that has already been given and use your $$$ to take some action.

      Do this. Then, when you wake up and the beer has cleared your head, pick one of your ideas and do it. Then stick all those floatey ideas in your head into a filing cabinet in the recesses of your brain and lock 'em up until you've successfully implemented the first idea. If you have trouble with clearing your mind, I'd suggest you borrow some money for more beer.

    I know im the last to coment, but i have an idea.

    I agree and say that you should follow gogetta's plan. Maybe even set up a free blog instead of the domain (just my opinion, not solid advice)

    After all is said and done, You should pay yourself the $25 for all your hardwork. I dont know how this will help. But while i though about the threads question and figures if you (I) reward yourself for the work you have done. Maybe that link between Internet Marketing and making money online will finally kick in.

    BTW, its amazing how a basic post like this. can make you realize things within yourself , that you could never identify alone, until you provide feedback for someone else.

    You might have asked that question, but I needed that answer.

    thanks

      LMAO - Funny I just read that thread and now this ....makes my stomach hurt!!!

      Personally, I'd keep the $25 bucks, steal my girlfriends panties, sell them for $150 and have a 100% ROI and then by your girlfriend more panties that you can in turn steal again. Rinse and repeat! Turn this into a six figure empire and then post your WSO of how you turned $25 into a six figure empire!

    bladerunner: the niches I see in your tag is all in make money niche products..Those are difficult to market as an affiliate...start with other niches...

    Go to clickbank

    Search through the categories and choose something with a high gravity, over 50 at least..

    And the payout should be $20 and above....

    brainstorm some general keywords and go to google keyword tool and find more keywords...look for competition in google for the keywords..choose keywords with low competition...

    Pick a domain with your main keywords in it...and buy it for $10 or something...

    Buy hosting from hostgator or another hosting company...

    Install wordpress......start to add one post everyday with one of your low competitive keywords in the title and in the tags....and add your affiliate link with a call to action anchor text...ping the blog....

    Write articles...and submit to places like ezinearticles, goarticles etc with a anchor link to your site....(everyone can write articles)....read some stuff about your niche at forums or other places related to your niche and write...

    there are more things you can do..but this would be as a starter...

    I would by a squeege, a bucket, and window cleaner.

    Then I would hit every local business and offer to clean their windows for a lower than fair price.

    I would then visit car lots and offer to wash/rinse cars for $3-5/car.

    This way, my last $25 wouldnt be wasted and I could make a couple hundred in a weeks time.

      A friend of mine years ago did this exact same thing.

      He started making so much money, and took on so much work, he started hiring guys to help him.

      This kind of advice is dangerous in the wrong hands...

        Put your money into an auto responder like Aweber or Get Response. Use the free sites to set up a squeeze page (Blogger, Squidoo, Hubpages, etc.). Put together a series of email messages (articles on your topic - tips, lessons, etc.) and include several messages that are solo ads for whatever you're selling/promoting.

        Create a free report of some kind related to your offer, load it up with links to your free sites and hosted sites if you have any, and offer it on your squeeze page. Encourage people to pass it around. (Viral Marketing product)

        Add relevant content to your free sites to keep them "hot" for the SEs. Social bookmark every post you make - go beyond Digg and Delicious. Make those posts a minimum of about 3-4 times a week. They don't have to be very big. Just a short point or reference to news in your industry, a great resource you just found, or whatever. Comment on other people's posts - but do it on your own blog. Give them your viewpoint or opinions.

        Work diligently on these tasks with the goal to sell quickly so you can continue your auto responder payments every month.

        If you don't want to spend your money on the auto responder, there are some free ones around that are quite good - and will suit in the short term until you get money rolling... email aces is good. And I think GetResponse offers a free version although it might be just a trial now. It used to be free forever but you were restricted in the number of ARs you could create. Paid is unlimited.

        When you aren't writing, visit other sites to strike up some joint ventures - offer them an article for their site with a link back to yours in the resource box, spread your links around. If you've done the research as you say, you will have plenty of ideas how to promote your offers.

        Getting started with an auto responder will keep your prospects in your sights so you can pitch to them over and over again.

      I think you're asking the wrong question...

      It seems like you're in need of a system/plan to follow and you don't necessarily have to spend money to find one.

      But if you're looking to spend money, I'd say what Eric said, sign up for the War Room, there are plenty of strategies/plans in there for you to choose from.

    I have to say Action. It's the hardest thing for me, yet the one that always works. Try setting your alarm and getting up at 5am for a couple of hours of work before your day begins. You may be tired but when your bank account is full you won't mind.

    If your wanting to invest your last $25, I can send you my Paypal to send it to me.

    Otherwise, I would suggest stop paying out money, and start implementing the knowledge in your head.
