    Hi,

    in $500 you can make your own website and as you also write and do seo well, it wont be a problem for you to get your site ranking in google/yahoo/bing etc. You can find out which product is interesting for you to sell online and then you can become a reseller of some online store and sell their products on your website. if your website is ranking, it will drive traffic to your website and ppl will buy from your site too so that way your online business is set.

    You might want to think about selling some of your best pictures online and writing up descriptions on each of them with the right keywords to help boost your SERP rankings.

    Good Luck

    Try PPC or buy advertising space. It works and can give you thousands of dollars in return.

    I would recommend purchasing an existing site which makes maybe $1.50 per day via Google AdSense. Then if you add content and conduct SEO you could increase the earnings over time.

    Make sure you conduct adequate due diligence before purchasing the site. Ask to see screen shots from Ad Sense and Google Analytics and make sure the numbers match up somewhat. Also look at who is referring visitors to the site and make sure it's not a paid link or AdWords because when that stops income will stop.

    I would invest that to start my own blog site. A professional looking blog site that can post sponsored posts and ads.

    Make your own site in a good niche with beautiful potential. Do SEO or other marketing jobs to bring good traffic to your site, and then sell the site with big money.

    You can try E-Commerce site and sell what ever you want. And spend your 500$ on ads.

    Buy a niche site for cheap, then use the rest of your money to market it and improve its page rank. If it earns good revenue overtime, flip it.

    My suggestions would be these:

    Long term/smaller gains: Invest it in gold or some other commodity that you research and think will grow in value

    Short term/Higher risk: I would invest $400 into a couple of good sites and develop them, then use the rest to list them on Flippa or Pipme.

    You could test it out by doing an experiement, buy one nice domain for less then $100 and sell if you can flip it some for profit.

    Hi,

    You can do a lot of things with your $500. Try website flipping or go with Affiliate Marketing.
    Promote products via advertising and you could make some good bucks ;)

    If you say you can do SEO, then you must have a website or somewhere to post on at least...

    Use your own skills and write articles and promote an affiliate product.

    The $500 can be used to cover any overhead - or an adwords campaign to boost your articles.

    Find out what works for you. Promote things that you like.

    I would do the "SuperAffiliateGuy" course for about $70.
    It's great and suits your skills!
