If I only have $100 to invest in an online business, what is the best way to spend it? Or is it even enough for this sort of business?
If, say, I decide to invest in affiliate marketing, I would have to spend some money on web hosting services, but what else?
Your expert thoughts are eagerly expected and highly appreciated...
Hi there now you are in right place and asking right question. In general $100 very tiny amount for any business. Specially on internet. You may see many of ways to invest this short amount but problem is if you choose wrong. once of suggested to you for forex if you have good idea on it. Or, you can invest for survey, if you have any authentic site.
But, as mentioned all have very risk concern. I would like to suggest for a risk free invest for $100. In first line I said you now in right place for asking right question. If you have skill for sell on SEOclerks, make a gig or service and make this service a category featured or make service highlight. And once your service will make a category featured, you will get some good sell and without any risk, you can earn some money by $100. But, it is depend on your service quality.
Hope you understand

You can invest it in Forex if you have any idea about it, or maybe you can invest it too in drop shipping. I think this option is more easy and you don't need much money, 100 Dollar is enough and more.
If you decide to go into affiliate marketing, there are some other things you must set out money for like, a good leads plugin like optinmonster, you will also setout money to manage your list like aweber, mailwizz. And most importantly you will have to run promotions to get leads that will convert into revenue. That will also cost some good money.
Hi, Mybarya, our friend Thart is right you should invest in Forex, or you can buy Google Adwords add campaign! If none of these satisfy you maybe you should invest in the creation of a blog or website!
Actually you could try to invest it in cryptocurrency world. You could buy ethereum.
You couldn't earn a lot, but you could earn without work.
If you are a native english speaker I will invest in blog creation but you must love to write articles or pur hard work on blog otherwise you will not see other money.
I agree with this guy! Currently, cryptocurrencies are a really good investment. However, I would recommend BitCoin over Ethereum. Etherum had a recent very unexpected drop in its value. BitCoin seems to be much more stable and it is still sitting at 1 BTC = 2509,99 USD.
If you read about how to invest into BTC, you could easily double your money or triple it and then when you have more, you'd be able to invest into multiple things for your website.
Lol. There are a lot of things to consider before mining. OP says he/she only has 100$ to invest. And you suggest bitcoin mining? We don't even know what his system specs are. What if he is only using a laptop? Mining bitcoin or other crytocurrencies requires a specific custom built system. And it is based on your graphics card. Just my 2 cents. ^^
Forex is my best bet. Im new to online business so my knowledge is limited to which coyld be the best money maker. I am familiar with Forex because it been available since I can remember.
If you want to start your affiliate marketing bussines, you need a website, in order to setup a website you need to buy domain, hosting and hire someone to create logo and banner (in case you don't do the designing). If you are a beginner and do not know how to design your affiliate store, you also need to hire someone to do the desigining, which will consume a large part of your $100 budget.
You can add a blog to your affiliate store. Blog will help you generate traffic. If you don't do the writing, you need to spend on acquiring quality articles.
Invest in a domain and get WordPress and also use Amazon affiliate link plugins. Find a niche you know about or interested in for example Gaming. Make a gaming site and use Amazon affiliate to promote games and gaming accessories on your site and earn from sales. It's just an idea.
I totally agree. I think building an affiliate website would be the best bet as you would be able to operate withing your $100 budget. But with that kind of budget, you will be putting in more work and be discrete not to go for the wrong offers too thereby killing all chances of ever having a return on investment.
And then there's this problem on what niche will he be putting on that website. He needs to have an online business so he must choose wisely what kind of business he will be putting up which can guarantee that his investment of 100$ will be returned.
This is the action plan. Anyone reading this thread should take a look at this. The reason being this is the type of action you should get when you want to do something. Because this way you can get lot ahead with that small investment. For anything else it may not be a good idea. I have found that 100$ can burn up pretty quickly. You have to work with whatever you can invest.
Actually, it depends. There are a lot of places you can invest even less than that. The important thing is to know where you're putting your money into and what is your expected return. Investment without research is just as useful a gambling. It comes down to pure luck. You have increased chances of making it big if you invest in something you like or know a great deal about like a website or blog.
It depends on your interest too and your willingness to work. Wherever you invest, you need to do some research before you spend your money. Otherwise, it will be a waste. There are a lot of options like affiliate marketing, CPA offers, Blogging, etc. Just choose the one which suits you and does some R&D before you spend some amount in it.
There are several ways you can invest $100 but it all depends on the skills you possess and your interests as well. Someone mentioned Forex, it's a good deal but you have to ask yourself "What do I know about Forex?"
For me, blogging seems a right fit if you just wish to sit at home and work from home. The problem here is that you may need to spend a lot on advertising or you may end up not getting anywhere As there are millions of bloggers all over the world.
Also, depending on your country of origin or place of residence, you may decide to start a small-scale importation business. You would not need to carry out any offline sales, however, as there are several online stores where you can register and begin selling from.
And once you can find your feet in this niche, you can then decide to open your own online marketplace where your customers can purchase goods and products directly from you.
You would, however, need to carry out a lot of research on hot selling products so as not to end up shooting yourself in the foot. Best of luck!
If you are a risk taker, I would suggest to invest your money in Forex. In Forex, your money could be doubled or tripled depending on how the market goes in favor of you. But you need to study how it is done before you can start investing. There are lots of brokers that offers demo account with demo money for you to practice before starting a real trade.
I think you should develop some product or membership site. This way you can get some return of investment. I have tried to make an app. But it takes more money to make and maintain it. And it may not be a good option if you consider long term. In fact you would find that cost of 100$ may turn out to be more of less for some projects. That's something you have to check out so that you can learn how you can get more out of 100$.
Forex trading is by far the fastest way to make money online, however it can get very risky as it's similar to gambling, if you lose your position you lose your money so before you get into Forex and binary options trading you should maybe research the matter or even open a demo account and find out how everything works out before putting your own real money in
You should invest your money in a project or a field you are familiar with. What is your passion? What can you achieve with $100 around your passion? If this amount was $1000, would you still spend it the same way? You must answer these questions to help you focus and strategise better. It's your money. Decide and spend it wisely.
If you don't have any experience in the stock or forex market I wouldn't even think about investing. $100 is way too low of a sum to make something significant and you can lose the money extremely fast. Do a lot of research before investing in online businesses, most of them are really risky.
I totally agree, if you have no experience in the stock market or training binary options, you should no even think about investing you money in there. I once lost a good sum venturin into trading with no experience, so simply find something with a low risk.
You can open a store at any of the shopping sites - example eBay. eBay has a global market and what you buy in your local market could be kept on sale there keeping a margin for yourself. I am a buyer and I come across so many sellers there. Surely they do not produce those items but buy and sell them keeping a margin for themselves.
I heard about Forex trading is one of the best ways, but also a very risky business. Try to get some testimonials on subreddits, with proof of revenue. Hope it helps!
You may use the Robinhood app for stock trading. Robinhood provided free transactions. Definitely, you will need to study the market first and then go for the trading. With a lot of study and and patience one can increase the invested amount. Given that there is no transaction fee, trading is much flexible with Robinhood.
Reading through this thread I have learnt a couple of thing myself. But yet I will like to contribute my 2 cent to how invest $100 in online business. The only counsel I will give is to invest in domain flipping. But cheap and premium domain to flip at higher price. Although more learning and reading need to be done so as to make wrong choice when choosing domain to register.
There are a few options out there that may allow you to make money before you have to spend any money or very little. Like Websites Affiliates, I've heard some great reviews about the people at WebsitesAffiliates. Apparently signing up is free or the charge is well under 100$ and there's also tutorials to help you get started right away. You can always purchase an upgrade package but you can start with the free package and work your way up to advanced and perhaps at that stage you will double your investment and make even more money in the near future.
Learn and start forex trading, do mini importation or deal in bitcoin.
Thanks for the thread. I have learnt alot for myself.
Mostly invest small amounts in bitcoin trades. because when time passed by the value of bitcoin (for me) becomes larger and more valuable. it really depends on luck and what your current mindset on how you will spend small amounts. my suggestion if you want, add more than $100
With 100$ I'd say dropshipping would be a valuable option. Now of course there are risks involved like with anything, but if you do a good job with the placements of your adds let's say on Facebook your potential for earnings are unlimited.
Invested in CPA marketing with paid ads from Facebook, there are cheapest and you can get good ROI . But only if you know how it works.
I like every single ideas above exept forex, Honestly speaking I mean writing I can't advice someone to incest in forex trading unless if he is an expert otherwise the chance to loose all your money is higher than the chance to make money from that :-)
If I had only $100 to invest online I would think of 2 things, Start youtube 5 channels and make them stand out by investing little in them that would be like $20 per a channel trust me this is worthy doing, second would be to buy Digitals like e books, Audioz or videos with resell rights and resell them on Amazon or Shopify ... now choode one of the two and start to make money.
I think you have to invest in selling physical goods on the internet around your locality. What I really mean is that once you can able to sell goods that are in high demand, you're much of making it.
Pardon me for asking but what do you intend to earn from that $100 investment? Maybe you can start by blogging and you spend that budget for buying a good theme that will give your blog a touch of professional look. But you have to remember that you need to be writing articles for your blog so if you couldn’t then you have to hire freelance writers and again that it will add to your budgetary requirement.
