$500.00 bucks - Best place to burn it?

27 replies
Hey Warriors,

I have a double ended question for all of you I guess....

If you had $500.00 to burn on building/starting your internet business what would be the best place to spend it or what would be the best way to spend it?

Products and PLR are awesome if you have the money, mobile apps are a good start too, how about just promotion of someone else's product? or how about just building a good list for down the road passive income?

Your experience and expertise will be much appreciated.

(Can be for any niche and to just build upon)

Here were thoughts of my own but not sure what direction is best.

A) Ebook creation with opt in/squeeze page/sales page/funnel/email series follow up etc "done for you" by outsourcer.

B) Solo ads for list building.

C) Simple/EZ Desktop Software for list building/product to sell.

D) Affiliate/CPA promotions using advertising.

E) More domains and websites (adsense?)

F) JV product build/promotion partnership

G) ???


I appreciate any and all responses and am hoping for some good tips and ideas from the top super warriors/marketers here...

Thanks in advance guys and gals,
Geo

p.s. I'm thinking the "Long Term" , something that will continue to pay.

    I would use it on solo ads to build up my list. Or together with JV and launch my first product.

    I want to build up a list and buyers list so think a combination of the 2 would work well for me personally

    I'd reinvest it in a current campaign already doing well. $500 isn't really enough to get any momentum going with anything new, for me at least.

    It depends on where you are with your marketing - If you are already up and running then I would go for some quality Solo Ads (make sure you have a good converting sales funnel).

    For Newbies I would always advise on getting a good coach, mentor or join a solid coaching program.

    Hope this helps

      Thumbs up to that! Ha.

      But as others have said...it depends where you are. Do you have campaigns running? Are they working? Put the money there.

      If they aren't working...use the money to test.

      If you're brand new you'll probably want hosting, domain, autoresponder, etc.

    to 'burn'?

    It depends on what really needs help in your business. For example, if you have JVs but no website, use it on the website obviously.

    I'd say use it to build your list. Solo ads, paid traffic, maybe get a mentor.

    First of all do not call it BURNING your money.

    If you using your money wisely you are investing it. Meaning you are spending $500 to make $500 so then you have $1000 to INVEST.

    Then you just keep doing that.

    For me, I would use it on PPC. Nothing else will be paid traffic and good old list building.

      Thank you and your right, it is an "investment" and that's what I'm lookin to do, double or triple it and then reinvest it.

    I'm a little biased (as a content writer), but I would say set up a site and spend the money on a lot of good content.

    On top of that do some manual SEO and backlinking yourself and you should have a property that makes its money back relatively quickly.

    I like starting up businesses so I would purchase a old LLC that has a credit line and buy it for $400, create a website for that business and sell products and services for that company, and sell it for 3 or 4 times the cost that I bought it for.
