    Hello All,

    I have $3000 that I want to invest online. What is the best way I can invest this money? I am a programmer and I know my ways on the internet. Where do I find the most bang for my buck??

    Thanks

    If you're a programmer maybe try making a new iphone app? :) But yeah, probably just search for good profitable websites on places like Flippa and invest on those websites that will keep generating you steady revenue.

    There are many things you can invest in (an iPhone app isn't a good idea as there is far too much competition and not much money in this).

    I recommend investing on something that will benefit you long term such as tuition or an established website. With these you will be able to massively expand your knowledge over the long haul.

    I recommend staying away from things that may result in you wasting your money due to lacking prior knowledge such as Adwords.

    If you have a good idea however you may want to start up a website relative to this. This is reasonably cheap to do and you will have a sound basis for making considerable amounts of money in the future and if it doesn't work out you can always flip the site.

    If you really want to invest your $3000 on online business I suggest you to start your own small SEO service company with a group of freelancer.

    The most important is to have a good bussiness idea. If you do, then spend this money to impledent it. A SEO service is a good alternative too. Good luck:)

    AOL stock is $19 after a 52 week high of $29. Investing your money online is just a scam waiting to happen.

    Definitely invest in an established website by shopping here on DP or Flippa. If you find something that your interested in (you have to be interested in the site and the subject matter) and is making a small amount of revenue and has a steady traffic stream, you could flip it and double your money. It may take some time, but its definitely investment material.

    Here are some ideas

    1] A site where people can outsource programming work
    2] A site where programmers provide free programming services in exchange for something non monetary (Another service, goods, products, websites etc)
    3] A forum and knowledge base website for programmers

    $3000 is too low for business.

    My suggestion for you is source some talented designer and team up to produce something that market needed.
