1000$ start up money for IM.

18 replies
Hi,

I've read a lot of newbie guides and suggestions on how to get into Internet Marketing, and it seems like it comes down to this:

1. Pick a product or niche.
2. Sell it.
3. Review
4. Learn and do it again.

So how would a 1000$ start up money could help a beginner to get there faster.
How would you spend this money, what system? ads? traffic? templates? software?

Thanks for the suggestions in advance.

    I'm assuming you're talking about affiliate marketing in general when you say "Sell it"? Or are you referring to creating your own product?

      I meant Affiliate Marketing, to get into the game, but I would love to create my own products at one point.

    You can use it to buy ads from facebook, google, PPV network and buy tweets. All this methods worked, but you have to test it with difference elements. Start with $10-$15 per day budget and test every element until you find a winning ads. When you found your winning ad, you should increase your daily budget gradually. Do not spend more than what you can cover.

    $1,000 can be used:

    1. Hiring article writers to write many articles with optimized long tail keywords which have low competition for affiliate programs. Then post the articles into your own blog. And submit each blogpost to social media sites through OnlyWire.com. The $1,000 can turned into 100 articles which each is 1,000 words.

    2. Select a niche and look for affiliate programs with recurring income system. Buy a domain name, rent a web hosting and install Wordpress software. Rent autoresponder service. Then use the $1,000 for generating traffic with BingAds. Wth the $1,000, the target is at least 500 new leads for your own list and 50 new subscribers to an affiliate program which give you recurring income.

      Don't just drive traffic to an offer in the hope that some will buy.

      It's worth building up a list of people who are interested in the niche, through capturing their email addresses, using an autoresponder like Aweber, perhaps in return for a free gift or a newsletter.

      Then as they get to trust your knowledge, you can market related offers to your subscribers. So I would certainly say invest a bit of that $1000 in an autoresponder service.

      Regards

        thanks for helping me out guys, great advice.

        Luckily I've found a couple of good writers on fiverr. Content creation shouldn't be a problem.

        I never heard of OnlyWire.com thanks for the tip himanuzo.

        I completely new to ads, I have some reading to do before I dive in..

        Thanks, again.

    Think Big. Domino's pizza started with a $1,000 investment and not a penny more.

    If you want to create your own products in the future, why not start now? You can always do affiliate stuff on the side, but creating, selling, and controlling your own products and services is where you can make SERIOUS money.

    Create your own product about something you know well. Maybe an ebook on how you made that first $1000 and market it towards newbies. If you are marketing it to new members, will have to be cheap, and then i would spend that $1000 on building a list for your launch, a nice sales page and a whiteboard vid.

    Good luck

    You need to pick an area of marketing that you like the most by researching the different ways to make money...

    Website design, email marketing, article writing, cpa marketing, video marketing etc. Then spend that money on a good education. The more knowledgeable you are, the better equipped you'll be to give value in whatever area of internet marketing you choose to approach.

    Hope this helps.

    Warm Regards,

    Daniel

    You can't buy experience. Plan on losing the $1,000.

    Start out small, spending very little. When you've got a handle on things then you can start spending. Just don't fall into the trap of thinking you know everything when in reality you're still a newbie.

      No, but you can buy education. Which will make your experience much more fruitful.

        I don't have a product or niche yet, and I have some SEO experience but not enough.

        Thanks for all the great advice, I hear you about education, I have a bunch of good material queued up in my "to read" folder This forum is a goldmine

        This is what I have so far.
        Installing WP, Plugins, Scripts, Themes, Hosting is not a problem, I can deal with most of the technical challenges.
        I've found a couple of good writers on fiverr for quality content.

        This is what I don't have (yet):
        experience with list building, sales pages...I guess IM in general.

        ...and now back to reading

        Thanks, again for all your inputs.
