What Would You Do With $50.....

by Mickey Janzen 11 replies
The scenario... a friend asks you how to start making money online but he only has $50 a month to invest.

With so many avenues to choose from, what would be the most logical considering he's a newb and has only $50 for start-up?

What would you tell him?

    Do this:

    1. Get a domain name and hosting ($15 to get started)
    2. Get an autoresponder ($15 for starting)
    3. Hang around in forums like WF to learn everything (FREEE)
    4. Look at what successful marketers are doing and do that themselves (FREE)
    5. Sign up as CB affiliate
    6. Create an LCP, and start driving free targeted traffic using the many methods of articles, videos, podcasting, social marketing, "HARE" marketing, and so many other methods...
    7. Get people on the list and give them free information that is valuable
    8. In the end recommend OPS (Other People's Stuff) to the people on the list!

    Now this is highly ovre simplified, but yeag you still have 20 dollars left, so get a new domain and start a blog on the same hosting account!

      Not to get OT here, but I'm curious about a few things in your post, such as:

      * What autoresponder service costs $15?
      * What web hosting company offers you to pay monthly? I signed up w/Hostgator and had to pay for a full year up-front. ($95 +/-)
      * What is a "LCP" ? I'm assuming that might mean "Landing Capture Page", but would like to make sure.
      * What is "HARE" marketing, as I've not heard that term before?


      Thanks,

        Thank you for the tips.

        There certainly are an abundance of ways to create residual income inline. Many of them I've never even thought of.

        What is "HARE" marketing?

        I'm with HostGator and I pay monthly.

        LCP, "lead capture page."

        If there's a decent autoresponder under $20 a month I'd like that info too, please.

          I pay hostgator monthly as well. Awebber costs $20 a month but either way is within the budget.

          If it is your buddy though, get them a cheap domain name, use your hosting for the redirect ( save them the $10 a month to begin) or even use the redirect that most places like namecheap and godaddy provide, write articles send directly to aff site, collect the checks and then take your business off from there. Or read the forum, watch for the monkey's crazy money competitons and boom your off and running.

            1. Get a domain name and hosting at Godaddy. Create a Wordpress blog. Install the All-in-one SEO pack and Google site map plugins. Search for a good product in any industry in Google. Create your domian name with the product name in the domain name to get top rankings. Write two large post and then a review of the product. THen write 8 article and submit two per day to Ezinearticles promoting your new blog.

            2. Get a subscription to Wealthy Affiliate, get the yahoo voucher, get a domain name and hosting. Ask what you need to use ppc effectively to Kyle and Carson.

      I have to say that you couldn't have put it better! I signed up for your videos...loved the first one!

      Your page was really professional and everything was quite stylish.

      I think the Autoresponder and Landing Page are KEY pieces. I teach why building a list and knowing how to convert it (by writing great email promos) is the easiest way to get started online.

      If you could make 1-2$ per month off a list of 1000 people, you could definitely have a lot more than 50$ to invest per month

      Cheers,

      Brad Spencer

    Write one good article on your niche subject first. This should
    be a pillar article. If your copy skills aren't so hot, you may
    need to spend the entire $50 for this one article. Once this is
    in your hands, put about 20 or so spins on this. In other words,
    re-write the same article in 20 different ways.

    A free, and very good software program, is called ==>
    www.JetSpinner.com.

    Of course, if you wrote your pillar article yourself, you could
    spend the $50 (actually $47) for an upgraded version of JetSpinner,
    but the free version works very well.

    Once you have the 20 re-writes of your article, submit each one
    to the top 20 ezine sites (ezinearticles.com, goarticles.com, etc.)

    There are free and paid article submission scripts out there already.

    Once this article is submitted, wait 2 days, and repeat with another
    article. Hey, you need to work at any business to make it succeed.

    But if you do this right. You can do all this and still keep the $50.

    Your $50 won't make you rich. What it can do is provide the key to
    those riches.

      Do article marketing for six months. Save that 50 bucks for six months. Now he should have 6 x 50 = 300 bucks + at least 200 to 300 bucks = ~ 600 bucks to spend on PPC.

      Create a simple landing page (no need expensive software) with a link to an affiliate product that pay recurring income. Drive traffic with Adwords...

      Rinse and repeat..

        Month 1 - Join the War Room here

        Month 2 and beyond - use the $50 for domains, hosting, scripts, etc

        That first month will show the newbie (if he'll read and heed) exactly how to make money using those $50 monthly investments.

        Of course, he'll have to wait till the membership is re-opened (oops)

          Use the $50 to purchase domain names that are keyword rich and promote CB products via redirect links.

          Write articles

          Rinse and repeat. Then when you start getting some income from the sales, you can start outsourcing the article writing.
