    Invested Money, What Should We do with It?

    Ok we recently had someone invest $300 in our hosting company. Of course he expects us to make money with it. So my question to yall is, what should we do with it? Spend it on support, server cost ($105/monthly), buying clients, marketing, or what?

    I would simply save the cash.

    If you absolutely must spend the $300 that was just given to you, then I would print some marketing material such as flyers or business cards. It really depends on your needs. - Top Provider of Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, and Cloud VPS Plans.

    If it is money invested into your company, then spend it on something that will make a return. Using it on a monthly server bill wont earn you a return on the investment.

    Marketing, Advertising, etc is what you should invest it into. Do a $300 campaign in Adwords for a day and earn a couple clients that will bring in more than $300 by the end of the year.

    I'd spend it on advertising, maybe a PPC campaign?

    Advertising. Once you have your business running, basically all your money should be going on marketing campaigns. Within reason of course, but thats a general rule...

    My opinion -
    Spend it on anything that would automate your setup or billing routines. You'll be glad you did later.
