If i had 500k i would invest it on building a list.... With $500k i can build 200k list for each opt in i can earn about 1$ so i can earn around 200k per month
#500k #invest
  • I would test that theory by first building a list of 1k or 10k and see if that $1 per subscriber still applies in these days, and more specifically, whether "you" are actually able to get a return of $1 per subscriber, rather than basing it on what you have heard many times over. In reality there are thousands of marketers who managed to build lists of 5,000+, but do not earn 5k or even $500. So I guess it all depends...

      With that much money he should afford to be able to hire an expert in funnels who can set up a funnel which will get him $10-$30 per subscriber in the first month.

      And yes, people are still doing this right now.

        There are many factors involved as to why someone is unable to earn $500 a month from a 5k list. He/she may not have built a trusting relationship with that list, or maybe they are offering the wrong products to the wrong crowd, or maybe the delivery rates are so bad that out of 5000 only 200 receive the email because spam filters are in the way, and maybe the open rates suffer due to headlines similar to: OPEN NOW! HURRY! LAST CHANCE!!!) and many more reasons.

    Before you choose to invest any amount of money always be sure to perform proper due diligence for your own protection.

    Before investing, I would advise for you to read and learn as much as you can around here.

    There is a wealth of valuable information in this forum so try to learn as much as you can before you decide to recklessly spend your money.

      If the OP really had 500k to invest, I doubt that he'd be spending the day posting questions in this forum, but rather find himself on a beach somewhere exotic, drinking fancy drinks and being fed grapes by sexy girls in tight bikinis. But hey, I could be wrong.

    $500,000 hmmm.... big amount...

    I prefer to use it to buy a physical store at mega metropolitan - $200,000
    Buy inventory - $150,000
    Inital cash for the company - $50,000
    Rest - $100,000 for generating traffic with PPC, hiring writers for blogging, SEO expert -> toward to an opt in for building list. Target getting 50,000+ leads.

    This requires a lot of research and is not as simple as A + B = C.

    The buying apartment sounds like a good idea on paper if you do in a metropolitan area. For example I worked in a Manhattan residential building for a while where you could buy an aparment for roughly 700k to a million and charge 5k per rent easily (minus 1k maintenance and all bill included) so that's 4k pure profit per month.

    It's also important to mention that roughly 10 people a day would come in and if there are apartment available for rent. With that said it sounds like a great investment, considering you will be, making money and the value of the apartment will keep going up (they don't really go down in good areas in NYC)

    The problems start when you end up with bad tenants. For example in that particular building a lady with a child lived for over a half a year rent free before they were able to remove her legally from the building On top of that she messed up the whole apartment and the repairs would easily cost 20-50k to get it into the shape it has to be to rent for 5k again.

    It's quite difficult and costly to actually get someone evicted in NYC, especially if the person has a child.

    I personally would scale up my own business and stay away from new ventures until I can handle the costs.

      $400k offline, real estate, investments and so on

      When you get $500k in hand then you should know what to do
      if you want you can invest real estate anytime, just loan? mortgage?

    I always wanted to start a social network, so If I had 500k I would invest in a programming staff, project manager, and the overall design for the social network, this won't be some basic design you can buy for a couple hundred dollars, I would probably spend a good portion on having a professional design for my social network.

    the project managers job would be to go around all the top social networking sites and write down the features, and the programmers job would be to integrate those features in my site, I would also have programmers to check code and tighten up security, then we would weed out all the features that we don't need.

    of course Id use a portion of the 500k to promote it, assuming I can't reinvest that 500k, haha.

    The other half I would invest in a couple of brand websites that need investment for expansionand and can show potential for exponential growth.

    Sure, If I have this amount of money, like most people's suggestion here. I would surely invest to a more tangible products/businesses other than investing to some schemes that you are not sure.

    Overall, even though you have all the money to spend if you are not determined and hardworking enough. surely, almost anything won't work for that particular person..
