    Save your money and create yourself a free blog with Blogger.com. (free)

    Pick a niche market, then, find a product to promote as an affiliate at Clickbank.com. (also free)

    Write a review of the product and post it on your blog and make sure to include your affiliate link at the bottom of the review post. (free)

    You can use article marketing to drive targeted traffic to your blog. (free again)

    This traffic will potentially convert into sales depending on how compelling your review is, how good the product/sales pitch is and how hungry the market is for the product you are promoting.

    You can also offer to give away a free report (that you wrote or have the resale rights to) in exchange for your viewers' email addresses. Building a list and developing a relationship with your subscribers is one of the most important and profitable things you can do in IM.

    This is a very brief and vague explanation and obviously there is no way to calculate an 'estimated revenue' but you can have excellent results if your blog, reviews and articles are all done the right way.

    There is a plethora of information that goes into detail about how to perform each of these tasks right here on the Warrior Forum!

      Yeah as Shane has said save your money, read the forum and then take action!

      As you are just starting out - make a plan for say the next 30 days.

      The best thing to do is to spend a day or 2 going through relevant posts here on WF. There are literally 1000s upon 1000s of threads aimed at newbies looking to get into IM.

      Then you want to pick a niche within which you wish to research and write about. I have always been told that health, wealth and relationships are the most popular with the most active "buyers" on the net. Then dig into your niche and find a specific problem that needs to be solved, this could involve visiting relevant forums (go to google and type in "niche" + forum), Yahoo answers, etc.

      Once you have found a "problem" that needs to be solved within this niche, you can look for an affiliate product to promote..Clickbank, Paydotcom, Commission Junction. If the product has a free report, sign up for it. Infact sign up for a few free reports, newsletter, etc. Spend a week studying the reports and newsletters, until your head is full of information on the actual subject.

      Then go over to Travis's Bum Marketing Method and read and learn about the importance of long-tail keywords and how to find these.

      Again as Shane mentioned, go to blooger.com and write a review on the product you wish to promote with your link to that product at the bottom. Then spend the rest of your 30 days, submitting articles to the top article diretories (Ezine articles, go articles, squidoo, hubpages) using the information that is welded into into your brain from all the research you have done in the previous week and the knowledge from Travis's Bum Marketing about long-tail keywords.

      Have something as simple as statcounter.com on your blog, so that you can gauge the amount of visitors and review at the end of 30 days your results look at what you need to do to improve.

      That is a simplified version, but as i say, there are many threads here that will go into huge detail and guide you step by step!

    $50 is not much as for investment. So I'd suggest what Shane Natan did. However, if you still want to spend them, the best investment is a domain name (of course, if you already know what you want to do with it .. if not, spend some time in finding your way first)

    There are so many different ways, is really an open-ended question. It also depends on your personality. Are you willing to take a risk? Are you looking at promoting everything for free, are you willing to pay for paid advertising, are you willing to put time into creating your own product, or do you sell someone else's product?

    Because really, you actually can make money online, without spending a dime. However, when most people get serious, one of the first things they usually do is pay for domain hosting and domain name, so that is where your first $20 should go. After that really depends what direction you want to take it. If you create your own product, and you really don't need to use any more money than that. Unless of course, you need other software or services to create it, but then you would be spending more than $50

    Totally agree with Shane, you would be better of going for the free options to start with, $50 is nothing really to get going with so building. You would need to write a fair few articles to see results.

    Well I'm going to go against the grain here. It seems as if "traffic Exchange" is a bad word around this forum but I know of several manual exchanges that I use that give me (and other) results

    So I would find a couple of sites I didnt mind surfing at, take the $50 and spend $19.95 on my first months autoresponder service. another 10 - 20 on some type of traker and use the rest on some coffee.

    Now create a simple squeeze page targeted at traffic exchange users, add your autoresponder code to it and start surfing track your results, tweak your page, add some follow ups with your affiliate links to the autoresponder.

    Drink coffee rinse repeat

    It may take a bit of work to get started but if all you have to start a business is $50 than you should be willing to put in some effort.

    After 30 days you should have built a big enough list that you can market to to cover expenses for your autoresponder + more coffee and then some do this for a few months and you have a decent list and spend your time looking for other ways of driving traffic to your squeeze pages.

      Thanks Brant

      I have done like that and my list is growing up . I'm little bit happy for results because I didn't expected to get good results with that kind of way. So I have my website where I promote a product for free. And I'm helping my readers to have active list and earning money according to my experiences.

      In 3-5 days I have had over 30 subscribers but I haven't invested but only $30 for advertising.

    You want to research it more thoroughly, but Shane's suggestion is an ideal way to start generating a great income on the internet at a very low cost for sure! Affiliate marking is the easiest and most efficient way to generate an income when properly instigated!

    1st go to clickbank and find something that has a fairly high gravity and high % referred, sign up and get a hoplink for the product, after you sign up most of the products will give you tools or promo material, then go to homeblogbusiness.com Home Blog Business[/url] and make a free account and follow the training(also free) to get a good start.

    the most important thing is to know you need to invest either time or money (less money? More time! and more work, don,t try to get that money maker goldmine all at once, do it in little bites. and don,t give up!

    Buy a domain name and get a web hosting account so you have your own web site. You can get a year of multi-site cpanel hosting for less than $50 here and here. Install a wordpress blog and post some product reviews with affiliate links, then spend your time building links to your new site with article marketing, social bookmarking, Squidoo lenses and directory submission - all free.

    If you only have that amount to start with then i would concentrate on

    to be able to get the most out of these resources you must do some good keyword
    research first - specially if you use squidoo

    articles - make as many as u want, their all free making sure you choose a good keyword and def make sure you anchor the keyword that your trying to opimize for

    squidoo - promote some clickbank products on here

    youtube - videos and its all free

    yahoo answers - and strategically promote affiliate products

    google groups - again be very professional and offer info and leave the occasional affiliate link

    i have plenty more but these should make you enough if used correctly

    Marketing for free is always a better alternative, Shane has a great idea that can be easily implemented and you could save your $50 by spending on hosting down the track or some targeted pay per click advertising! Top post Shane!

  • Again like other people have said I agree with Shane. This is the way I started and it works. The big thing is you have to really dedicate time to this. just like going to work or school you have to put in the effort to see the results. Good luck in the future

    Would agree with most posters that Shane's idea is a terrific one! You would also want to do some extensive research on what is working and viable in the niche you have selected to make sure that you can convert as much interest in the niche you have to a product as soon as possible. Selecting a sub- niche in the health industry would be a great way to start generating interest in your free sources!

    Go ahead and follow Shane's advice, at least to get the ball rolling, but then rather than SAVE that 50 bucks (it won't do anything hiding in your wallet), go ahead and spend it to educate yourself, a good start is to spend $37 out of it to join the warrior forum's private War Room http://www.warriorforum.com/war-room...e-discussions/

    You will find even more on point ideas and advice in there, perhaps even a war mentor.

    Cheers,

    simply stick to shane's advice and give yourself 30 days. Invest your $50 in either Aweber or Getresponse and start building your list. To build your list there are several free e-books that you can use.

      I think you are better off list building for now if you are just starting out.
      once you get a grip of your niche and have a steady traffic, then start capturing your leads' email addresses, otherwise you can end up with no list and a monthly rental of $20( although keep in mind that list building is crucial but it varies from niche to niche)
      For now i would suggest starting with article marketing and other free methods like blogger blogs.
      if you want you can invest the money to buy a domain but then you would have to buy hosting too if you are brand new( and that's another investment)
      Cheers!
