    Take $37 and invest in a War Room membership. Put the rest of the money in your pocket until you've spent at least a month reading through stuff in there. You won't get a single answer here that hasn't been covered in the WR.

    You might also try punching ideas into the search feature of the forum as this topic has been covered in thousands of existing threads to date.

    If I had $100 to invest, I would rather spend just $37 for War Room Membership, create a unique IM method and put it on my own eBook, and sell it as a WSO which cost $40 to post a thread. I still have $23 left in my pocket on this, so I'll just focus on promoting my WSO.

      It was no longer your thread the moment you clicked submit.

      That type of information can be found rather easily using the search function.

    The intent of this thread was to know what people would do with exactly $100 to invest. I dont want to search the forum for "No investment ideas". The point was to see what you could do with investing. Most ideas require no investments, I want to see the other side and what ideas that require investing money could yield.

      Okay I can be kicked off really do not care. If your too lazy to search the forum, your too lazy for internet marketing, We get these threads dozens of times a day.

      I could search this topic and write a 1000 page book on it, just searching this website.

      My thoughts only, take them or leave them.

    My old man used to tell me that only invest my monies on things that you know something about- or someone will take you for a spin.

    I suggest the same- before you ask someone- learn some on your own self as well, so you have a rough idea on what to start, and what to avoid.

    That said, with $100, you can't invest much (and hope its all champagne caviar dreams) outside unless you invest it on yourself.

    Do you have any experience with marketing on the internet? There are multitudes of ebooks that will teach you the same thing: build a list, market to them, and make money with your $7 product. If you can build a large list, surely there's a way that you can monetize these people. Don't think that it's hard, because it isn't.

    I would save up until I had a few thousand dollars. $100 isn't enough, I think, to do much at all. It takes some time and money to get something started that works...that amount of investment is really not going to cut it. Probably not the type of answer you're looking for...meh.

      A hundred dollars to me might be like a nickle to you.

      What good will it do you and your business to know what I am doing with a hundred bucks?

      We are most likely at totally different levels.

      Recently I spent a hundred bucks just on a few graphics to be made. Will that make me money? Yes. Is that all that is required for the specific project I'm working on to make money? Not even close.

      Simply put: If I have $100, what is the best way to invest this money to make more.
      I don't have nearly enough information to know what to suggest you spend your hundred dollars on - or if you should even spend it if that is all you have for your business.

      When you dive into niches and decide on some kind of business plan, it becomes very clear where your hundred dollars needs to go.

      Now, if you have a hundred bucks and it is just burning a hole in your pocket, feel free to send it to me. I know many ways to spend it quickly.

    Easy.

    Replace the word "business" with "gambling", because with $100, and the way you asked, thats all you're doing.

    for me the steps will be......

    1-buying a good course in affiliate marketing (about 30$)
    2-learning,testing,monetizing,hard working (your own effort)
    3-keep learning,keep testing,keep monetizing,keep hard working (also it's your own effort)
    4-build my site,good content,good backlinking (about 20$)
    5-promote my site (also it's your own effort)
    6-generate traffic with rest of money (about 50$)

    after that make a huge facebook fan and link it with your site for contentious traffic leads (also it's your own effort)

    sorry that's all i can help with since i'm a newbie........

    wishing you success

    My answer is the same as always. 1st investment = keyword research tool. Keyword tools help ease your mind . . . they tell you what keywords will make you money, and whether or not you can conquer it.

    If you know you're not wasting your time you're more likely to stick with it.

    Then, domain name and hosting.

    Everything else should be grunt work / learning the ropes etc.

    Put it in the bank and save it for a bit, there is work to do before you spend any. If you are going to have a chance of turning a profit with only $100, you need to start by planning.

    First, You need to ask yourself if you have the time to do this, or if you should just get out there and get a job. $100 doesn't go far and you don't want to rely on this sort of thing unless you have already had proven and predicable results. If you don't already have this network and proven track record, it will likely take time to see a return.

    Every Internet Marketer, including the Big Players, has spent $100 (and more) many times and not seen a return, it is the name of the game sometimes. But you keep plugging away and sometimes do turn $1 into $2. Assuming this is an experiment, this is what I would consider doing,

    Conduct your own Niche/keyword research, just the free Google keyword tool is fine,
    https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal

    Also have a look at Google Trends, eBay Pulse, Microsofts commercial intent tool, look at related prospective competition (do a Google search and look at the top 10 sites), go to related forums and see what people are talking about. In all of this, think about what you can add, look for problems, questions, etc.

    Define a dozen or so topics with related products or services (the higher the product cost, typically, the higher the commission, Amazon.com is a good place to look).
    The research will take some time, to be done correctly. Once done, then you can start thinking about spending some $$.

    Hire someone to create a bunch of Squidoo lens and free blog posts. If you go to Fiver, you can get someone to write an article for you for $5. ($5x12=$60). You can go further and "Spin" it and then populate more internet real estate.

    Squidoo is pretty good at getting traffic (with good, well written content) as are some of the free blogging platforms, Wordpress, Blogger, etc. The important thing is to add value to the topic, to be 'fun' and speak in the right language for your audience (you can figure this out when doing the research before you started).

    Find and add relevant affiliate offers, SEO optimize (can hire someone for this too, but easy enough to do by self.

    Hire someone to drive traffic, post the sites yourself to pingler.com

    Go out and comment on related blogs, forums, etc.

    Wait...........................

    Depending on the niche, competition, content quality/value, SEO and many many variables, this will generate some commissions. So, perhaps a month or so you will see the initial investment come back. The cool thing though is, over time, these little pieces of internet real estate can just keep bringing in commissions. I have a few really old pieces of content out there that still bring me little commissions and I have pretty much forgotten about them.

    Cheers!
