Invest $50 (top 5 methods)

Invest $50 (top 5 methods)

Investing $50 may be a big challenge given the small amount.

However, there are still some good ways in which you can invest this amount.

Money alone is not enough. You need some effort and study in order to achieve the highest possible return on your investment.

So in this guide let me share with you from my experience the top 5 methods that achieve a good return on investment.

Some of these methods have a high risk and others are a little risky.

Therefore, it is your responsibility alone to decide which method is best for you.

Before anything, let me answer you honestly…

What is the return on a $50 investment?

The amount, as you can see, is small, so do not expect a huge return at first. Some of the methods here may be able to double the amount within a few months, other methods may require you to make a long-term investment for years to achieve a return exceeding this amount per month, and of course there are other high-risk methods that may cause you to lose a large portion of the amount.

And therefore…

It is important that you do not rush to get a return on your investment so that you can take steady steps and get a good return.

Now let’s dive into the ways you can invest $50.

The best ways to invest $50

Here I will guide you with the methods from the least risky and the most effortful to the highest in terms of risk.

But it is always better to rely on those methods that have little risk.

Now if you’re ready let’s start with the first and always best method for me which is…

1- Invest in a blog

At the beginning of this year I spent approximately $40 on a new blog.

My investment was just buying domain hosting for the blog for an entire year.

After that, I started publishing articles on this blog on an almost daily basis, reaching approximately 150 articles.

Visits to the blog began to increase until it reached approximately 400 visits per day this month.

What’s nice is the return from it, which exceeded $60 a month.

New blog profits from advertising

Note: The return was very weak in the beginning, and reached $50 per month after approximately 6 months. I also have some experience in writing articles, so your start may be a little weaker than that.

Steps to invest in a blog: 

  • Buying hosting and a domain: Here I recommend purchasing the first plan from bluehost, which costs approximately $40, and from the previous link you will get a free domain for your blog (the domain is the name of your site).
  • Website launch: Through bluehost you will be able to launch your blog with a few simple clicks.
  • Publish content constantly: But before that, you must learn how to write an article and optimize it for SEO.
  • Choosing a profit method: There are several ways through which you can profit from blogs, but the easiest is always the AdSense advertising program. Apply for it after your blog gets good visits.

It’s simple, but it requires you to study well, so I advise you to read the guide: Create a blog and profit from it , and if you encounter any problem, all you have to do is contact me and tell me your problem and I will try to help you as much as possible.

2- Invest in affiliate marketing

About 3 years ago, I tried investing an amount close to $50 in marketing affiliate products on Facebook.

In fact, the experience was rather good for me.

But I considered it a complete failure and decided to change the field to blogging.

My experience was marketing shoe products, and I actually started and created a page for this field and designed some pictures for the page.

Unfortunately, I did not have good experience in launching advertising campaigns on Facebook.

but nevertheless…

I paid 100 pounds for ads and 3 sales were made with a commission of approximately 120 pounds, which is approximately a net return of 20% of the initial investment.

I tried it again and paid 500 pounds in ads, and the return in the end was approximately 150 pounds.

I found the amounts to be small so I decided to stop.


You can go on and make good money if you learn to: 

  • Correctly implement advertising campaigns.
  • Correct pricing of products, and adding good commissions for each product.
  • The most important thing is to choose good products that the market needs and whose competition is not huge.

To be able to start this investment you will need the following sources: 

3- Invest in providing services

You may think that this project is a bit simple and it is…

Here I mean investing in launching advertising campaigns to promote your services.

The services I specifically mean here are electronic marketing services and providing followers to accounts.

A friend of mine has already started providing these services and has been able to achieve very good profits.

Here all you need is:

  • Finding good sites that improve the interaction of social media accounts.
  • Find out what prices these platforms charge.
  • Set your price higher than those prices.
  • And start promoting your services.
  • The price difference between the platform and you is your profit after deducting the advertising portion.

The project is good, but the risk is somewhat higher because you are promoting a somewhat small category, and the platforms that provide such services may not be guaranteed.

Therefore, you should study your steps carefully before starting this project.

You can provide many other services such as:

  • Marketing services on Facebook.
  • Writing services.
  • And others…

Here is just my suggestion for the method that does not require skill, but if you have a skill or intend to learn a skill, you can definitely promote and sell your skill.

This takes us to the fourth and most important method, which is…

4- Invest in yourself

Investing in acquiring a new skill is the greatest and most profitable type of investment of all.

For years I took this as a joke.

But where I am now, after God’s grace, is thanks to investing in myself and purchasing some good courses in the field of writing and marketing.

Therefore, my advice is always to invest in yourself and learn a new skill that will enable you to earn additional income.

Whether this income is through:

  • Your own project: YouTube channel, blog, Instagram account, Tik Tok account, or other electronic projects .
  • Freelance sites: sell your skills to business owners through platforms such as Fiverr, Upwork, Fiverr, or Mustaql.

After developing myself in skills such as writing and search engine marketing, I began selling these services on my Fiverr platform and have already achieved sales exceeding $1,000.

So my advice is to find one of the required freelance skills and start learning it.

Now with the last method through which you can invest $50, which is…

5- Trading

Trading cannot be considered a method of investment.

Investing is buying assets and waiting to achieve a good return over long periods of time, while trading is a faster process that may take place in days, hours, or even seconds.

So trading is the highest risk way in which you can last your $50.

Here you can trade in:

  • Forex: These are foreign currency pairs, and it is a high-risk field and I do not recommend it.
  • Digital currencies: very high risk and you may lose a large part or all of your capital, so you should pay close attention before entering such a field.
  • Stocks: Here the risk may be low, but your capital will not enable you to achieve significant returns. Therefore, if you intend to invest and leave those stocks for long periods of time, you can do so. However, if you are looking for a quick return on your investment, stocks are not what you need.

Most of the previous trading areas I have already tried and some of them made good profits, while others caused me a lot of losses.

So my advice is to stay away from all trading at the beginning of your path and invest in yourself or in a real project such as a blog, an Instagram account, or affiliate marketing.

Thus, you have learned the best ways to invest $50.

If you have any questions regarding the previous methods or other methods, do not hesitate to contact us.
