I found $10 on the street. How should I invest it?

Let's see if:

(1) This thread gets any responses, and
(2) If they're as ridiculous as the responses in every other "I have $X what should I do" thread.

    Buy a domain. Either flip it to a local business or use it to start a new cash cow.

      Like this method,

      You would be surprised at the amount of businesses using a long domain name when shorter, more relevant ones are available.

      Current: www. example-business-london .net

      Available: www. example-business .com

      I would scout out a website, buy the more preferable domain using a coupon (£0.99) and then approach the business.

      You could probably contact the business before buying it, and providing you don’t charge ridiculous rates - should be happy days.

    Buy 10 $1 rain ponchos at the dollar store and sell them by the subway (or anywhere lots of people come and go) for $3 each during the next downpour.

    My best advice is to:

    1. Invest in the $1 Aweber trial. You'll need a way to keep in touch with your competitors.
    2. Invest in the $1.99 hosting offer in the web hosting subforum. You'll need a website to get everything going the right direction.

    Now you have $7.01 left.

    3. Install a Wordpress blog. This will make it easy to write the articles you need to write. This is free.
    4. Create a FB fan page. Social media is one of the best ways to start marketing. This is free.
    5. Go to Fiverr and get the 600 likes for $5 gig.
    6. Now start copying and pasting articles out of EZArticles onto your blog. This will make it easy to get the blog up fast.
    7. Sign up for PayPal to be able to get access to your money.
    8. Write a sales letter telling people that you can help them get out of their financial crisis pretty darn quickly. Make the price $20. Hey! - You've doubled your money already!!!
    9. Copy this forum post verbatim and put it in a PDF file. Stick it behind your sales letter and you'll be raring to go.
    10. Wait for the customers to start rolling in from your FB marketing.

    Oh and there is a #11.

    11. Once you get things going and have made at least $80 (4 times your initial money) spend $20 for a WSO ad and watch things go from simmer to boiling!!!

      I would probably want to know where your starting point is right now, such as if you already have a website/hosting/domain name. Everyone else is just jumping right in with suggestions, but I'm guessing you already have all that now so why even suggest it. Anyway, this is a hypothetical so I'd just use the money on myself for maybe a coffee or latte.

      I liked most of your list until you got to the part about paying for fake likes. I'm not sure what fake likes have to do with building a successful business. Didn't you hear how Facebook is dropping fake likes like crazy?

      And, yeah that other part about using copied/syndicated content, won't really help your site too much.

  • - Buy Logo's on Fiverr. You can get 2 for $5 so that makes it 4 differently designed logo's for $10. Use something like 'You Company' as the text in the logo (make sure you own the rights).
    Head over to 99Designs.com and put your Logo designs for sale. People buy Logo's for upto $100 in 99 Designs and if they don't want the same design to be used over and over again, they pay a premium $250 for it.

    - Buy a domain from GoDaddy. You can get a domain for upto $0.99 via coupons (YES! I have bought at this price). Get free hosting from Atspace.com (They offer free hosting for 1 domain). Subscribe to MailChimp which is free for 2000 subscribers and/or 12K Emails/month. Use different techniques to drive free traffic and build a list.

    - Buy a Geo Domain i.e Boston + Resturants .com (MAKE SURE IT's A .COM) and cold E-mail restaurants in boston regarding the sale of this domain. You can get Email addresses via Manta, YP, Google etc. If you use GoDaddy coupon, you can get 3-4 domain for $10.

    I'm sure there are more ways but these come to my mind at this moment. I'm sick of seeing comments like 'Get a sandwitch' or 'Buy a nice meal' - It's possible to make a profit, even from $3, but given the correct advice.

    Hope it helps.

    Agreed, did it make you happy when you found it? Multiply that happiness and make it last forever - here's how...

    Pay it forward
    - give it to someone else who needs it more. It's only $10 so after you buy your domain or "invest" it it'll be gone and so will the energy of the "find". Find someone who's down on their luck who would really appreciate $10, give it to them personally, shake their hand and tell them that they "never know what's just around the corner" and make them happier than you were when you found it. That way it'll multiple the happiness and pay (internal) dividends for the rest of your life.

    TIP: Don't tell anyone that you did it or it will instantly lose it's power on you the moment you share it because you're showing off - big mistake. This is not about you. That $10 has much more power than you think - especially when you give it personally to someone who has nothing. Just smile to yourself while brushing your teeth - you'll know.

      Invest in winning lottery tickets. Create a $2,000 a pop coaching program on "how to turn $10 into $250,000,000 in 30 seconds with no work and zero investment."

    Invest in reliable autoresponder like Aweber.

    For websites, you can make do with a free blog like Blogger and Wix.

    But for autoresponder, you need a reliable service like Aweber so that you can send emails and connect with your prospects and customers without giving them the impression that you are spamming them.

    these ads are silly.

    I know 2 other warriors with $200k dollar a month companies.

    1) physical product and PPC

    2) The other one does better, just hosting, domain, list building, sales funnel. Seminars. (is a warrior in here and does $250,000 USD sales a month)

    I think you are starting to see a pattern yes???

    Don't invest what is not yours. Give it away in charity to someone needy. No matter how desperate your financial situation seems, there are thousands of people who are much more needy than us who do not have even the basic necessities of life.

      Thanks! This is a really decent idea. Find someone in need such as someone sleeping outdoors on a park bench and treat them to a new pair of shoes. I know that $10 won't buy much in the way of shoes but any dollar store would have something ten times better than what they're likely wearing now. Or, invite that person to a lunch at a diner. A hot bowl of soul on a cold day will not only lift their spirits but also restore hope in humanity/future. There is common decency left in the world. And, what better return could you ask for from ten dollars than to make someone's day in this way?

    I know this sounds stupid, but if you can find the owner of that $10 you should return it to them. If not possible, then it belongs to the street-- not to you. This is just another way of looking at things. Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers as they say. I just don't want to be at the losing-weeping end that is why I don't go by this philosophy.

    Now, if indeed I made it a habit to go out of my way to search whole streets for loose change and dropped bills then I deserve it. It was lying around for a reason, that money was meant for me because looking for left behind money is how I make a living.

    This may be peanuts-$10. Add another six zeroes after that and you get a travesty. You say, "but it was just left on the street..." Do not let them question your actions. You have to earn it. You have to OWN it.

    I guess you have a lot of ideas by now from this thread. There are countless ideas in Warriorforum as well. And I bet you still have the 10 bucks .

    Get a list of ideas, see what is feasible and can make a difference. Use the $10 to invite two friends (an investor and another entrepreneur maybe) for coffee, and discuss your idea. Start off your business right there. That would be the best way to utilize it.

      Pocket the 10. Go to nearest place that sells lottery tickets, rummage through the trash look for scratch off tickets, double check them...cause the guy who lost the 10 spot, probably is the same guy who scratched off a winning lottery ticket, then through it away.

      PS. Lest you think idea silly and ridiculous IM standout Glen Osborn even has a report on how to do it.

    $10 is a tiny amount of money,hence easily squandered,so I would be looking for a GUARANTEED way to multiply that seed money into a meaningful sum.Most of the ideas so far would be worthless,as you'd run into cashflow problems.my solution would be to buy secondhand books and sell them on Amazon.Why? I can easily buy 10 -20 books for $10,while knowing how much profit I can make and how quickly they will sell,BEFORE I risk any money,then I'd turn that $10 into $100 in the span of a couple of weeks,get paid by Amazon,reinvest that $100 and turn it into $1000 over the next few weeks,then use some of it to purchase the tools I needed,say an autoresponder,hosting,domains,traffic etc and get a product created and launched.

Go to the nearest police station and file a report that you found money and describe where,when and how you found it and wait for 30 days for the police to find the person who lost the money, and if there are no collectors them the money is naturally belongs to you, only then you can go out and enjoy the loot
