If you had $1000 and had to start again...

If you had to start your internet marketing venture all over again, with just $1000 but had the knowledge you have now, what products/method would you use to start earning a passive income online?

Here's what I've thought of so far:
Going the wordpress bloging niche route...
Buying a site Flippa....

Basically I am in this position and want a but don't know what route to take.

I know I need to buy a domain so maybe that's where I'll start...

Your help is really appreciated. I am poor but have come across some money and want to spend it wisely so I can start earning a living online.

    I would probably try to buy two sites from Flippa. Just do your research and make sure you get two good ones and make it count!

      Unfortunately Flippa doesn't have any sites for sale in my niche.

      You'd really have to watch yourself here. There is a reason that most people are selling sites on Flippa...

      I would utilize Flippa and a team of experts to build a website from scratch that brings in money. I would then, potentially, sell the site on Flippa. With a $1000 budget, you can go very far with this idea.

        Very much, be very careful what you pick up there at the moment. A lot of sites got hit badly by Penguin and were put on flippa. The traffic stats they are showing are for the month before the roll out by Google.

        If you do look at any sites on there make sure they give you a fresh view of the last months traffic back dated from today.

        Personal preference, but when I look at flippa I tend to use a filter to remove stuff less then six months old. There is lot of stuff under six months which may look promising to an inexperienced user, but the niches they are in are often quite very competitive and need some really solid SEO (also to add SEO is little up in the air at the moment, esp for new sites). You're really just buying an overpriced domain and wordpress install, which worse still might be carrying some penalties.

        The best thing you could get from flippa is an aged site. Those are the gems I look for. Esp something from 2007 back, they tend to get serious bidders going after them though and so go for 1 to 2k +

    It is hard to say because what worked 3 years ago won't neccessarily be working well now. Unless you know what you are doing, forget Flippa. Most are not going to sell something that is doing well.

    Simple. I'd go for affiliate marketing through article syndication. Runs me about $25 per month to start so I get to pocket the other $975 for pizza .

    Lots of people would kill for $1k in this economy. That said, if you have gone the niche blogging and website flipping routes, maybe you should try ghostwriting (check out Ghostwriting Cash dot com) or opening your own PLR store (see PLR ATM dot com).

    Good luck,

    Depending on the niche, I would go the list building route. Why? Because I want to try and capture every visitor to my site and market to them again and again whilst building a relationship.

    I would therefore therefore set up squeezepages on a domain and drive traffic through solo ads and giveaway events if in the IM niche. Would set up a OTO to recoup investment.

    Would spend $100 on professional squeeze page design, $400 on solo ads and upgrading in giveaway events and then tweak sales funnel and spend the remaining $500 next month pklus any money I had recouped with OTO.

    Best regards

    Luke

    I'd buy an ad here on the Warrior Forum that taught new posters how to use the search button and see the other 15,254 posts today asking this very question.

    I haven't thought of that like that way. But if I had that kind of money i would spend my time of this very forum and see what would be more beneficial for me. And start doing that right away.

    I know exactly what i'd do, i'd find expired domains with some age, related to free ebooks I have, buy those and toss up landing pages to give them away to build my list. The two primary focuses most likely being marketing(making money, SEO, facebook etc..) and weight loss. Then i'd join some of the better CPA networks, and clickbank. I'd invest some in traffic methods(facebook, adwords and craigslist ads) as well as SEO methods to rank on Google. As my lists grow i'd advertise offers and products related to the list. Rinse and repeat.

    Spend the $1,000 on list building and getting those subscribers to like you...the money will follow. As soon as you stop chasing money the money will come to you. Best advice I was ever given...!!!

    Well if I am allowed to take the knowledge that I have now into this scenario, than this question is easy.

    I'd create a WSO and bump the **** out of it. Not saying I can't afford bumps in the forum... but with $1000 instantly in my bank account it would be the motherf***ing mother load!

    Business-wise, I would NOT spend $1000 right off the bat....that is not good business sense.

    Every biz needs running capital, so start by investing $100-200, and keeping a healthy reserve.

    I know that doesn't fully answer the question, but it is the best perspective to use when investing in a new biz.

    Hope that helps,

    I would try to turn that $1000 into a $200/month steady income. Then i would advertise all over the place, get a job to advertise even more... then eventually use the sales and profits to use as advertising money... instead of dipping into the savings to run ads.
