    Well, I guess I'd start a website or blog ( on a certain niche ) and try to improve and make it as useful and profitable as possible ;)

    I'd spend it on a high traffic websites so I get interests there.. Or maybe I'd invest it to earn more..

    I would make a great forum. So, expenditure cost for that would be about 1000$ including design. The remaining 9000$, I will spend them to improve them....

    Well.... if I get that money in my real life, then, I will use it for my personal use rather than spending all the money on web.

    advertising for me. set the site up first and completely monitorize it and then pump the advertising and try to make it back 2 or 3 fold.

    afraid of what? i don't understand. I am assuming you know how to advertise a site and spend it wisely on google ads and other similarly powerful ad placements.

    well i agree with that, but we are assuming you had 10K extra lying around and had to spend it. Even a fringe niche could get big traffic with the right advertising campaign.

    Well... its true! But, I guess it will be better to have a forum instead.

    About 1000$ would go for its establishment(vb license+domain+hosting+skin design).

    Now, spend about 5000$ for posters.

    Spend about 1000$ to modify the forum and to make it good to handle huge traffic.

    Now, Spend about 2000$ in AdWords and various other advertising networks.

    Then, go and buy some chocolates and ice creams and have a party with your friends for 1000$.

    Thats it. Everything is spent. Now, watch the results, you will earn about 500$ per month if you keep that forum active.

    Noway ! vb licence + domain + hosting + skin design could cost about $300

    $5000 for posters, unless you are paying $0.50 per post!
    $1000 to modify the forum, there is nothing to be modified, all mods and plugins are free if you have a vB license!

    $2000 adwords, could be if you can pay it :D

    Actually if you are paying for posting you must have strict rules and good mods.. Because there will be lots of spam, and specially forums that are related to money making and GPT programs.. So you have to spend some bucks for mods too

    Well.. the mods will be paid 100$ per month and we will take 2 mods at the start.

    But, their salary will be from the revenue we get and after about getting PR3 or PR4, we can pay them by selling the button space like Qdoos is doing now on the top.

    So, no worries about the mods.

    it is all about control on all of the items you mentioned. you have to control what you set up and put in motion or you quickly....lose control and that results in a gigantic waste of your money.

    Well, the control will be there. When you spend 10k, how can you even dream of forgeting about that. If I had done that, I would always still to the forum.

    However, I am getting temptation and I feel like asking 10k from my parents right now! :biglaugh:
