Should I buy the Macbook or Invest that money into Making Blogs

26 replies
Well, I was thinking to buy Macbook Air which costs around 1.5k here but then I thought what if I could invest that much money in getting articles written for my blogs..

What should I do? I already have a laptop which works fine but i needed something better

    Buy laptop and write the articles yourself.

    You already have a laptop then why buy another one... spend that $1.5K, hire writers overseas...leverage other people's skills so you can focus on other important aspect of your business.

    Why a laptop? Do you travel a lot? If not I'd get a desktop, way more bang for your buck and lasts longer.

    How many blogs do you run?

      I have around 5 blogs in the pipeline. I can also write but it would take hell lot of a time. SEO part i can handle so I wont be outsourcing that. I just need articles for the blogs but then maybe i should postpone my plan of buying a Mac :confused:

    I agree, overseas writers can be terrific and your profit will be enough to buy a real computer

      Overseas writers can also be a nightmare.

    Not sure how a better laptop will encourage you take action? Spend the money in areas that will generate more money or make life easier in you quest to make more money. Just my two cents.

    Well if you already have a laptop, then don't blow money on a stupid Apple product. They're overpriced and over hyped. Articles for your site could bring in a lot of money if you monetize properly.

    Enough is already OK.

  • Think about this - what will make you money faster? Buying a laptop or reinvesting it into a money-making site?

    That's all you need to really answer.

    I would suggest using old laptop .. write own articles in two stage squeeze form ... very targeted media buys in small rounds until your conversions are tweaked. A true marketing based follow up for each of your 5 product tiers.

    Use your current laptop and make the blogs first. Then save half of your profits to re-invest in more blogs to bring you even MORE cash. Continue saving the other half till you have enough for the Macbook

      It's always a good idea.

      I would do both. Or maybe even something different.

      I just talked someone this past week into getting an Ipad. He was going to buy a desktop pc but the Ipad can be done for 400 or less. He is blown away and elated with his purchase.

      Spend a grand on articles, and get yourself an ipad. Win Win.

    When starting a new venture always keep your unnecessary expenses to minimum. Once you have a running business you can buy five laptops from its profit. If you only have fifteen dollars than even a five dollar shirt is expensive but if you have $1000 in surplus then even a $100 dollar shirt is dirt cheap.

    If you're doing SEO your self, I suggest you hire writers,linkbuilders, VAs to do all the work. You focus on sales. You don't need to buy a Mac. You have a laptop, as long as its in good condition you don't need to but new one. Spen the money in more important matters like training staffs, buying tools, courses, etc. Hire a writer to do the blog posts. The price to buy a Macbook is worth it but you don't need it right now.

    You can make a lot of things with $1.5k... if you don't earn any online income then invest the money into building a profitable business

    ^^ Well i do earn a bit online but yeah i guess you all are right. I should invest around 800 bucks on building a blog with good articles..Then maybe once I make 1.5k profit with that blog i can buy a mac ..Till then I have to hold on my horses :-|

  • I'd say keep that money and write it all yourself, but I'm not saying to buy a Macbook either. Invest the money in a new domain and hosting. If anything, use the money for pure emergencies. For example, you may want to buy something like a software or whatever. Anyways, hope I helped in some way. Saving the money is a good choice, but don't be afraid to hire writers if you want to. Good luck.

    Do what most millionaire, leverage...leverage...leverage. Time is crucial. Invest the time fine tuning your blog., get someone to write the article for you...so you can focus on what matters most.

    If I were you who have a laptop, why would you buy another one (unless your current laptop is not functioning anymore)? Just invest your money first to your own campaigns and make it profitable. Once you have a lot of money already from the campaigns that you have invested, it's up to you if you want to buy a brand new Macbook.
