If you had $600 and were relativelty new to internet marketing where would you start?

117 replies
Just a question I've got playing on mind.

I am relatively new to internet marketing. I had very short success around ten years ago and am now looking to giving this a proper go.

I've been looking at lots of things on the warrior forum, I am struggling what area is the best to start in.

Considering List building? Solos? CPA? Product creation?

Any advice advise greatly appreciated

    Greg,

    If I were to start over from scratch I would buy as high as I could into a program that offered 100% commission or at least up around 80%

    Purchase a domain and blog about things that solve a direct need of my niche daily. One a day.

    I would also use FB and YT to drive traffic until that blog gained the authority that would turn it into a 6 figure earner

    I would get a decent hosting and a domain. The rest ($550) I would spend on web design.
    Design is often very overlooked aspect of a site. Most folks go with free themes or very basic ones that can be found on themeforest.net.

    Then I would publish some great content. Do some heavy outreaching and bank in

    But that's just me.

      I admit this may not be a wise way to go for a newbie.If he spends his $600 just to host and design a website.What will he use to do other things like creating content and pulling traffic to his site.
      I guess he will not use his teeth to do that.

    I would buy a plr product, have someone re-do the graphics, then I would advertise it through banner ads, build up a list, and partner up for a JV or do my own product launch.

    I'd seriously consider putting that towards a coaching program. Spend a lot of time on research here. A solid coach, one suited to your needs, will take the time to assess where you're at and provide structure and goals.
    It's an education, and worthy of investment. As another poster mentioned, product creation is a great way to go. To get there most efficiently, a coach should be high on your list of considerations.

    I'd build my funnel first, including product with upsells/downsells.

    Since you are relatively new, don't bother writing your product (for now, your first product will be about how you made $8000 while investing only $650) but buy some of latest PLR products (as Slin said) and make your own mega product. Redo graphics, title, and spend remaining amount on bonus for JV's, promotion and paid inbound traffic.

    You can return your investment in short time, while building list of buyers and selling backend offers... press thanks if you like it

    P.S. Don't let shiny objects reduce your budget.

    Well of course List building but I don't consider list building a system in itself cause it has to go with something else. So you need to find your niche to build your list with.

    You can start by joining a solid affiliate program and then learn few marketing tactics.
    Today we have many different source that can help you build a 5k/mo-20k/mo business from Zero.

    An example, Facebook is one of the biggest social networks. And if you learn how to use to close sales, you can build a empire using fb. Fb is one of my favorite tools to close sales.

    Do you want to build your business to profit immensely in the future? Or would you like to start something fast paced and make money daily? There are perks to each, if you want to build your business to make serous income in the future, then invest in a domain name, hosting, then improve your social media presence and search engine ranking. If you are trying to make money now, you could try PPC marketing, dropshipping/ ebay, etc.

    Other methods include: List building (basic affiliate/internet marketing), blogging, niche sites, selling services on fiverr (or similar sites), and revenue sharing (making money off of adsense clicks, and youtube ad clicks), just to name a few.

    I would start building a list, get a domain and landing page together, and get a good ClickBank product to promote. Re-invest you're earnings into more solo ads until you can finally scale everything up and get more subscribers, even start to build multiple lists with multiple products.

    If you have $600 and limited experience then what I would do is focus on list building.

    Put in some REALLY great content into the autoresponder and sell affiliate products.

    Use facebook ads to gain traffic to your lead capture pages.

    Focus on building "online business assets" ... and FOCUS your attention for a while (one year minimum) on a SINGLE niche that you actually like; but NOT stupid IM or marketing.

    What are "online business assets" you ask?

    ==> Website/Blog
    ==> Videos (YouTube channels)
    ==> Facebook Fan Pages
    ==> Forums (participation in niche specific forums)
    ==> Squeeze Pages (email list capture

    ==> Interviews (blog)
    ==> Worksheets (blog)
    ==> References (blog)
    ==> Podcasts (blog)

    ==> Articles (to your email list, for your blog, posting to ezinearticles for rankings, guest blogging etc)

    ==> Webinars (use to sell the affiliate products)


    I am not kidding, if you FOCUS YOUR EFFORTS on a single niche, and if you make sure that EVERY DAY, 7 days a week, you create AT MINIMUM of one new "online business asset" then by the end of the year I can pretty much guaranttee that you'll have a million dollar a year business.

    Again, go into a real niche with real customers. Here are some off the top of my head but literally almost anything is good: Fitness, weight loss, bodybuilding, investing, stock/currency trading (very different from investing believe it or not), self defense, pregnancy, parenting, football, soccer, green energy, self-reliance, survival, "apocalypse" (collapse of the world governments), gardening, hydroponics, aquaponics, landscaping, personal aircraft, executive jets, and on and on.

    Pick something interesting that you'll enjoy. Build a business asset EVERY DAY. FOCUS on building your email list. Use your $600 as a kicking off point to buy some facebook ads and NARROWLY target your market. Sell as an affiliate until you feel comfortable enough to create your own products.

    Hope this helps

    1. I would start researching a niche with a product to promote (affiliate or create my own).
    2. create my site around that niche (blog, squeeze page, sales page/presell page)
    3. invest enough $ to get a 100 clicks to your squeeze page
    4. analyze squeeze page performance aiming for 20-30% conversion on cold traffic (40-60% conversion from solo ads)
    5. repeat step 3 & 4 till i hit my mark
    6. increase focus on sales page conversions aiming to make profit from advertisement.
    7. increase focus on email marketing & follow ups

    For $600 you can get started with anything YOU want, not just what we like.

    That being said, if you sell or promote anything, list building will get you better results if you do it right.

    Rebranding PLR is a quickstart to having your own info products and a great start into the IM niche if that's where you're looking to go.

    Choose a niche you're passionate about and find a way to build a site/products for that niche, it's more fun than doing what other people recommend.

    Try a teespring campaign and promote it on Facebook. Creating a teespring campaign is risk and cost free. You will only pay for the tshirt design and Facebook traffic. $600 is definitely enough to create 3-5 teespring campaigns.

    The idea after 600$ to start a 3 Months positive internet marketing is as follows:
    After Basic SEO
    Hire a content writing manager who posts at least 1 Post a day May be equal to 150 $ for 3 months.
    List your website in premium distribution press releases : 150$
    Prepare a landing page and start a PPC campaign on Google, Facebook, LInkedin > $5 a day = 300$ for 2 months

    Total 150+150+300 = 600$

    If you are new to internet marketing, I would suggest email submits, CPA, affiliate marketing and the like (very minimal investments). For sure, with these, you won't be able to finish up your $$$. Keep it first, and explore the different potentials you can get into when it comes to internet marketing. Once you find your spot, invest on it using the remaining money you have. Get a feel of everything (no not everything..well at least some), then choose which path interests you the most. Good Luck!

    1) You could build an email list and send out an email every single day to find
    out what your market best responds to in terms of offers.

    2) You could build a sales funnel and test that funnel by creating several versions
    of your sales page, landing page, back end emails etc and then find a winner
    and just drive traffic to the BEST performing funnel.

    3) Or, you could BUILD A TARGETED list of email subscribers, ask them
    what their wants and needs are and then help them with those needs and charge
    them for it.

    Conversions will naturally be higher when you are already giving people what
    they actually want and need.

    Testing various campaigns does work, but as long as you can afford to be at a
    loss first for a few weeks/months until you find a winner then that could be an option
    you could look at first.

    But I would say that building an email list that is TARGETED to what you already
    have and can provide to them, is far easier than building and then testing to see
    what converts.

    From my experience, I can tell You that 600$ and 2 Months are More than enough for me to make 5 Figures !!
    I'd start by creating a product on low budget (100$ TOPS) and building a site around it, and then setting up everything else for the sales funnel, then making a WSO (with lower price) and driving traffic using some Solo Ads strategy that works, and collect some money and some leads to my auto-responder account, now i'll have more money to invest in the long term PLUS subscribers in my email list that'll make me money with affiliate programs (W+ , ClickBank ... )

    That's what I would do, and that's what I recommend everyone to do

  • Greg,

    Don't listen or do what most people tell you. You must get a mentor and relearn again because the fact you gave up before must be because you weren't making a life changing income online?

    It won't cost you $600 to do that and you will be shown exactly what to do and in what order. Also some have free web hosting and many other tools and resources saving you money that you would otherwise have to pay for and risk making very little or zero back?

    There are many good online membership coaching sites such as Adam Short's Niche Profit Classroom or the Chris Farrell membership or maybe Bring the Fresh from Kelly Felix and Mike Long for example, all excellent but you must stick to the one you choose until you are making money online. The last one does not have free web hosting but is otherwise very good.

    Regards.

    Stephen & Jennifer.

      I want to agree with pretty much everything said here (well most everything ... don't know much about Chris Farrell). Mike Long is in particular a really good guy.

      Secondly, I would like to reinforce something said. STICK TO THE ONE YOU CHOOSE. I see more failure simply because someone doesn't stick with it.

    It depends on your level of knowledge but as a starter always best to promote other people's products say on Clickbank or JVzoo as all the hard work has been done for you and you just get traffic eitheir paid (solo ads) or free (say FB or YT) to the offers. I advise you try and start building a list so get a squeeze page and gradually as you get more experienced you could think about your own products.....but start making money 1st and show yourself that this online marketing stuff works

    ten year you say, wow! Well then you know making money online is all about supply and demand. First thing I would do is learn about the traffic sources available to you today and pick one or two that you would like to start with. Learn about that traffic source first.

    Making money all comes down to traffic and conversions in the end. You have free traffic and you have paid traffic. Paid traffic is for real business owners who are serious and once they know they have a system set up that is converting and making money then you can leverage the free sources. In my opinion of course.

    Id build a good squeeze page that is converting above 50% on good targeted traffic and leverage my marketing efforts by building a list.

    I would start off by investing some of that money in some of the best personal development books such as Think and Grow Rich or Psycho-Cybernetics. Let me save you 15 years of struggle. I have studied hundreds of business methods and business models over 15 years of time. I didn't have success until I changed what really needed to be changed, me.

    This is important because people can have thousands of opportunities thrown in their lap yet still find ways to fail, yet others grow up in the worst circumstances and rise to the top. The reason is whats going on in that person's mind, not external business plans or opportunties. To put is in the shortest way I can.. everything someone does is tied to their self-image.

    That being said. Once you have read some of the best personal development books several times you could start building your email list from the start. John Chow said the biggest mistake he made was not starting his email list early enough. Second, I would build up a website that provides valuable content to develop trust and draw more people into my sales funnel. I am particularly experienced in ppc in driving traffic but you may find other methods to your suiting such as SEO and farming out article syndication.

    Don't blow that $600 in one spot. Think of it more as a tuition toward your internet marketing education. Try 12 different things with it to see what works for you. Everyone is different and finds their stride in different ways of methodology. What you learn will earn you the most dividends in the future.

    I would start by not spending a single cent of the $600! Even total newbies to IM tend to have a pretty good idea about the number of scams and low quality programs that proliferate online.

    Next, I would get myself over to this site (and here you are) and learn as much quality free info that I can. Take notes. Network with the market leaders. Ask questions. Build a plan.

    When ready, then I would take out a subscription to the War Room (tick) and learn from the masters of IM there. Take note of who are the big success stories in marketing. Follow their lead. Duplicate their successes. Look for methods that maximise ROI to build on your $600.

    I am deliberately not giving you a specific IM route to take as your own marketing preferences and aptitude should be considered when forging your choice of educated path in the online world. Best of luck!

      $600 one time is not enough to build a business,
      you can use it to start. then add another income
      stream maybe a service to fund your business.

      Pick something and change or tweak along the
      way. Invest in knowledge about the business model
      you decided to follow, then implement.

      There's things you'll learn only by doing.

      $600 can get you started, but don't believe it
      when you hear that someone built a million dollar
      empire with their last $25 dollars and borrowed

    Product creation is awesome if you have the time. You can create an awesome product in less than a month, and then spend 30 days and your $600 building hype for product. Biggest tip from me in this direction is spending your budget advertising to potential affiliates rather than potential customers.

      I don't know if you can get a product done with $600. There is a lot of competition but if you can research and find a good niche then this $600 can be multiplied. Or find a product where you can get master resell rights and support for free. Product creation is all about Support. I will always go for product creation if I have this sort of money but today there are many options where you do not need to create any product and do customer service. I am using this sort of program and this is my main product with MRR.

    I see two marketing methods (lists, solos), one monetization method (CPA) and one business (product creation).

    Using your provided choices you would obviously want to start with the business and build off of that platform. Though product creation isn't the only business option.

    The "big gurus" who say that are just trying to sell courses that newbies can half way understand. They know that if they printed more in-depth material it would make heads spin and the refund rate would be 95%.

    Product creation, leveraging other people with lists, being an affiliate for their products, then creating a list of your own, will create the most sustainable income in the long run.

    Marlon Sanders teaches how to do this really well.

    The problem with getting started is that you don't have anything to sell. Affiliate sales can get you started, but depending on the winds of Google you end up starting over again and again. Creating your own products takes time, but isn't successful without the list.

    Work on creating your products every day, but spend some time marketing products. Become an affiliate for other people with products, and get their input into the products you are building. They will be affiliates for your products, and you can leverage their email list. Over time you build your own email list to sell your products to again and again, and you leverage it to also sell other people's products to. It is the combination of the two businesses that make it sustainable.

    I would research the niche and the method that best suites you. Then go from there.

    I've read a few replies that said "build a list!" and create a "product!" Which can be profitable. For the right person. I tried. I was not the right person. It s-u-c-k-e-d. I hated everything about it. What was the "right" method for me was creating tangible products that allowed me to see and articulate the unique value. That's something that I'm excited to work on everyday.

    For about $40 you can get a domain, a host, an autoresponder, and a PLR to giveaway. Then you'll probably need $40-$50/week for solo ads (traffic).

    That's all you need for list building.

    Once you have a list, you can promote affiliate offers, your own products, or whatever over and over again. If you're a super newbie, you're going to need some training on how to actually put everything together so I'm sure you'll need to purchase some WSO's as well.

        You're right, you don't need a WSO but you still need training. This guy has $600, and spending $20-$30 on education isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's an investment.

        The problem is people get hooked on WSOs looking for unicorns and magic buttons so they end up buying everything in sight.

    Well since your as new as i am. I would do your research in what profitable niche right now or what going to be soon and then look into building a list of people you could market them too but remember once you gained a sufficient list you then look to add relevant products that you could push add ons.

    I haven't even got to that stage yet as I'm a total newbie but if i had $600 i would use it wisely on getting the most productive tools to help me achieve my original goal. Look up Warrior Special Offers Forum, read some reviews on products ask questions if your unsure. The people in this forum are great and offers some sound advice but remember success won't happen over night and if you want to succeed in this business you have to have the right attitude.

    Hope this helps

    Considering List building? Solos? CPA? Product creation?

    Any advice advise greatly appreciated

    Greg
    I will start off building my email list.

    Get an Aweber autoresponder and build a squeeze page using James Dyson's Optimize Press. Though the latter costs $97 and Aweber $1 first month trial followed by $19.95 monthly, I still feel it is worth your $.

    Then signed up for Clickbank and Amazon.

    Then I will drive traffic through forums like this one, putting up Facebook ads and classified ads in sites like Craiglist, Gumtree, write some articles, published them in article directories like Ezine Articles, Go Articles, Articles Base and Article City as well as putting up some Youtube videos using Animato.

    Since Clickbank sells info products, that is how I drive traffic.

    For Amazon, it will be a bit different. I will focus more on advertising through free and paid channels since they are about e-commerce aka physical products.

    One very important lesson I learnt through IM is even if you earned $ be it your first dollar, $10, $100 or even thousands, do not spend all of it.

    Instead I created another bank account as my business account to reinvest what I earned for things like outsourcing and other tools and resources for my IM projects like Aweber, domain names and web hosting.

    That means other than internet marketing expenses, I will not use the funds for any other purposes.

    Very very important.

    Having said that, the best ways to start off is affiliate marketing.

    Not just promoting information products in Clickbank but physical products in Amazon as well.

    So that instead of just 1 income stream, you got 2 which is very easily achievable.

    I haven't read any of the responses, so forgive me if this has already been said...

    Your question demonstrates a common confusion here -- and a lack of understanding of marketing fundamentals: Listbuilding is NOT a business! Listbuilding is an essential marketing ACTIVITY.

    In other words, in ANY business, you need to be building a list of interested prospects that you can market to over and over again.

    The Direct Marketing Association did a survey some time back and found that people buy AFTER hearing about a product or service 7-9 times! So if you just hit them once, you're losing the majority of your prospects -- and a HUGE amount of money on the table.

    This applies no matter what industry you're in, whether you're selling a product or service. We buy from people or companies we know, like and trust. And that takes hearing from them more than once.

    It drives me CRAZY when people say "I tried listbuilding." as if it were a biz opp in and of itself.

    Arrhggh!

    You can only make money in one of two ways:

    1. Sell a product.
    2. Sell a service.

    That's it! Listbuilding is nothing more than a MARKETING ACTIVITY to sell that product or service.

    Even if you don't have your own product or service and choose article marketing to monetize CPA offers, you're essentially providing a service: you're driving qualified traffic to advertising offers. Article marketing is the method, NOT the business.

    And the leads need to go to a freebie offer to build the list first. Then you do e-mail marketing to that list to get them to buy.

    Online, the basic process is:

    Traffic > Opt-in page (to build the list) > Autoresponder series (or e-zine) (to market to the list) > Sales page

    I hope that brings some clarity.

    Step 1 - Buy a legal pad and a pencil, about $3, shut off your computer, and start brainstorming what YOU would enjoy marketing online.

    Step 2 - Leave the computer off. How would you enjoy marketing? Do you want to make videos, blog, do webinars, call people on the phone, all of those? Do you want to create products or sell affiliate products? Why?

    Step 3 - Computer stays off...Start writing down every idea that pops into your mind about the products or service you want to sell and what makes it important, cool, useful, fun, etc...

    Step 4 - Find a great training program to help you learn the skills you need. It might just be a refresher course for you, but do it anyways. I have a course in mind, free, from a friend that would probably work for you, but you already have tons of good suggestions. If you want another one, just PM me.

    Step 5 - Start at step 1 of that training program and follow the process. You'll probably invest in your domain name, hosting, and an autoresponder at that time. You should be able to get your first month for all of that for about $30-50.

    Step 6 - Hold on to your cash while you work through the steps, with the realization you will be investing it in SEO, traffic generation, and other techniques as you get the base of your business setup. (No point in driving traffic until you have a sales funnel.)

    Step 7 - Fail, Learn, Fail, Learn, Fail, Learn, Succeed. You should anticipate failing a few times, even with great coaching. Each minor setback is just a lesson, so take it with laughter and keep moving.

    Step 8 - Teach someone.

    Everyone makes it sound so idiotically simple, it's really quite annoying. I'm not trying to be rude. If you want to build a serious business you are going to have to learn all sorts of skills. Some of them include:

    Writing good content
    Technical stuff (setting up a platform, integrating payments, etc etc)
    Writing persuasively to get people to read, and eventually buy your/affiliate products
    SEO (which can be a huge task, especially when you're just starting out)

    It's not as simple as "create a product, build a list". All these things might sound fairly simple, but when it comes to the nitty gritty, things tend to go wrong or not as expected. You'll probably get frustrated a lot too, backtrack, and eventually think about quitting. There's a LOT to online marketing, and it took me at least 2.5 years to get it to click properly because I finally had a grip on just about everything I needed to know.

    $600 can go a long way if you can create some great content in a profitable niche that you are actually interested in. You can spend it on getting some proper SEO, content, product creation, services you might need.

    For traffic building, start with forum traffic to get targeted visitors to your list. Find the most active forums in your niche. Create a compelling signature that makes a free offer.

    Do this until you build a list of about 300-500 subscribers.

    Then it's time for you to find similar lists owners to do ad swaps. You run their solo ad in your newsletter and they run your solo ad in their newsletter. Only do this 2x a month with each list owner you find.

    At the same time, take a few dollars and start buying some solo ads. Track clicks to your site and optins to ensure your money is producing results.

    Have a sales funnel after people optin. This will help you get back some of that money you spent to buy solo ads. Plow that money back into solo ads.

    I could write a whole book here, but I'm getting tired.

    hi,
    I would definitely recommend getting a mentor or joining a coaching program. I have been struggling for 9 months now, trying to work it all out by myself and believe me it takes a while. If I had had some guidance from the beginning I would have saved myself alot of time and tears!!

    Just my two cents -- if you're just starting out, you need to get coaching or a mentor as others have mentioned on this thread. Learn from someone who has been where you are and is where you want to be.

    You can buy all the latest and greatest products being offered (not that they aren't worthwhile), but if you don't know what to do with them, you'll be left feeling confused and overwhelmed.

    For the past countless years, I thought I could figure it all out on my own. I bought product after product, course after course, only to feel frustrated and not knowing where to turn next. I knew I wanted to start, but I didn't know how. I can use FTP, set up an autoresponder list, and get a blog online, but I couldn't connect the dots and see how all this came together.

    It wasn't until I joined a bonified coaching program that laid out all the steps for me that I saw results. You need to not only have someone who can take you by the hand and show you the steps, but also someone who can help make sense of it all.

    You need to find someone you can trust, someone who's been in your shoes (whoever that may be) who can give you proper guidance.

    Again, this is merely my advice -- get a coach and learn from someone who's been there.

    Let me close with an analogy. Let's say you want to be a surgeon. You can buy all the "tools" such as a scalpel, a blood pressure monitor, a set of surgical clamps, etc., etc., but if you don't know how to use them, the tools are useless. You first need the training.

    I hope that makes sense. Again, this is solely my opinion from my experience.

    I wish you the best of luck as you search for online success.

  • As a newbie, i would suggest you to focus on just one thing where you are 100% confident. It is not doing too many things, but doing 1 thing correctly and consistently.

    Focus on your area of expertise and sell your services, which would be more easier than learning something new and wondering if you are going on the right track.

      Some words of advice from great minds....

      If a man wants his dream to come true, he must wake up. ~ Anonymous

      I have now spent fifty-five years in resolving: having, from the earliest time almost that I can remember, been forming plans of a better life. I have done nothing. ~ Samuel Johnson

      The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence, and educational advantages, but what he will do with the things he has. ~ Hamilton Wright Mabie

      Forget mistakes. Forget failure. Forget everything except what you're going to do now and do it. Today is your lucky day. ~ Will Durant

      Find out what people are buying, and go sell it to them. ~ Not sure who said it, but worth repeating!

    I personally would seek out a coach that would help create a system that you can make money everyday. Something like $100-$200 per day.

    List building, product creation, CPA, SEO with minis sites all take time and usually takes more than $600. You need to take that $600 and turn it into $10,000 and finding a coach that has a great system to make everyday money would be the best way to go, imo.

      $600 doesn't necessarily go all that far if you invest in a coach.

      Not that I'm against coaching, I'm all for it, but a "good" coach will charge you at least a couple hundred (I paid $500) and then they recommend all sorts of tools that cost more hundreds, and you still haven't paid for traffic to your offer once it's set up, but by then all your money is gone.

      I'm not saying all coaches work this way, (this has just been my experience) but just be careful when looking for a coach. Make sure you question them extensively about how far your money will go before you hand it over. Make sure they are interested in YOU, and not the money they'll be getting.

      I found a new coach who is great , and I would advise you to model after someone else's success instead of trying to do it all on your own.

    Stan nailed it right here: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post9027785

    And here's what I would do (and am currently doing to break into another niche for more passive income streams)

    1. Focus in one market
    2. Website (Blog)
    3. FaceBook Page and YouTube Channel to match niche. Make it congruent with your blog
    4. Autoresponder Service (Aweber, Get Response, Imnica, whichever you can afford)

    Create Assets:
    1. Focus on building your list
    2. Create your own information products
    a. Free report as a lead in to your paid for product
    b. Paid for product (Sell for $10)
    3. Create other free and low cost products to solve other specific problems within your market
    4. Create more expensive products ($47 - $97)

    Advertising:
    1. FaceBook ads
    2. YouTube videos (free)
    3. When you have a solid conversion contact other marketers in your niche (Limitless)

    I regret that I didn't start to build a list with solo ads when I started my internet marketing career.
    my advice is to build a list!

    Buying Solo Ads is the fastest and most effective way to build up your subscribers list.
    But you must to spend some money to setup a squeeze page and subscribe an auto-responder.

    All the BEST!

    It is pretty hard to turn your first $600 into a profit, there is a learning curve and it starts up with some downs before you go up.

    I'm really into writing horror fiction ebooks (among other genres). So I'd spend some of the money for outsourcing half the writing of fiction stories (and professional looking covers for them) to sell on Kindle, Nook, etc. so I could get more of them up faster.

    It depends, Is the $600 your last budget or that $600 is just a spare money you can invest to start Internet Marketing?

    If It's the first, I would recommend you find a "Real" job or sell a service that will definitely make you money. But if it's the second one, my suggestion is get a good mentor that can provide good guidance and is fit with your style and budget.

    There are good mentors out there but if you are not fit for each other and your budget. That would be a total waste of time and money on both of you.

    $600, I'd buy a domain and hosting. Hosting is cheep and always getting cheaper. You can get free hosting at some of the cloud services AWS Free Tier

    Don't pay for any advice. Go to Backpage and get yourself a $300 hooker. You will learn more from the hooker than all the IM gurus.

    Now you have $290. Learn how to be a webmaster. Try to making a static websie. Just make a site about something you like. Learn HTML, learn a little PHP, Learn how databases work. The net is saturated with free info. Just build something you like. A lot of people will tell you to use WordPress (Wordpress has its place) but it's an over engineered bloated monster.

    You can find free web templates if you suck at design. Look into Bootstrap it's a great way to knock out a website, but it has a learning curve. As you are having fun learning about web development keep your eyes open and look around at what other people are doing. Something will eventually come to you. And you still have $290
