    You know what, I wouldn't waste it. I don't know what kind of skills you have, but take your time. Develop a website you are interested in that is potentially profitable. I would put at least 50% into the marketing side of it, if not more. Taking your time and outsourcing to the right people will keep costs down.

    Research a lot about how to successfully invest and develop into a website. There are a lot of freelance article and forum development services out there that can make a good turn around investment.

    Well it realy depends on your skill level.I will suggest first to pick an niche buy domin + hosting and build up your site and see how that works out.After you have your site up you can always invest in some link buiding ti bribg more traffic to your site or you could just buy traffic.But if i were you i will do that myself first and see how that goes and save the money for other projects.

    The best and the easiest way to lose money is to invest into something that you do not know. Stick to what you know.

    In my opinion the best way to make money online is Services. Like said above, I don't know your qualifications, so depending on what knowledge on the web you have you could do more :)

    Good luck!

    I would give 200$ to a supper affiliate in exchange for a profitable keyword which has a ROI of at least 2-300%.
    I would then invest the remaining 600$ into PPC over an over again until it's not profitable anymore.

    Simple, no site, no SEO, no hassle.

    What do you have in mind first?
    That may help you get a head start and we can give you some pointers based on your initial thoughts too :)
    Its best to explore what people are doing online here in forums, or look around at people's website and see what (and how) they are running their websites :)

    I would not do ANYTHING they have said so far .. LISTEN, Since you do not have a website or any experience I would invest a small amount of $50 on one of those "Home Typing Jobs" which are basically training for affiliate marketing then you can learn all the ins and outs about this business and how to start generating cash without having to have a website. People on here most likely will tell you oh don't waste your money bla bla bla but it's well worth the measly 50 dollars cause no one on here or anywhere is going to sit there and teach you affiliate marketing from scratch for free and trying to research it on your own will take FOREVER. It's the best advice I can give you. Just run a quick search on google for "Home typing jobs" and you'll find plenty to choose from.

    If I had that money, I would use it to buy a profitable website
    it is too risky to invest everything in a new project, investing already established site is more secure

    Oh yeah that will be a good thing.However if you don´t have any experience with site it will be better to stay away from that.I think in your case it will be better if you invest first in some type of coaching program like WAU.That will get you started.

    website is necessary if you want to stay on internet. you can invest on internet marketing for your website but invest in installment each months, regular promotion is necessary and also important.

    Mate, go for something legal as my suggestion. Legal in the sense, make a website which totally satisfies the legal department and no harmful stuff or illegal.
