The 5 ways that you never think about

If you're interested in investing, then you've probably checked out a few different magazines on the topic. In today's marketplace, there are plenty of different choices for investment magazines, and each of them have their own unique selling points. Forbes is a higher-end magazine for larger scale investors. Barron's is a weekly publication with tons of statistics meant for professional investors and day traders. SmartMoney teaches a lot about retirement investment strategies and long-term growth. One of the easiest investment magazines to learn from, though, is Money Magazine.

Before you go out and purchase a Money magazine subscription, first ask yourself if you fit the target demographic for their advice. Just like you wouldn't want to follow the advice in Forbes without having plenty of money to invest, you want to see if Money is a good fit for you. Money magazine is usually aimed at new or amateur investors, with less money to work with. Middle and lower class households looking to invest can also benefit from Money.

Making money online might seem like a great idea at the moment, but is it really for you? Have you ever had an inclination to make money online or why all the sudden are you wanting to start? These are just a couple of the questions you should be asking yourself because without knowing these two things you will not be able to make money online day after day.

Go with safe money market funds instead.

WHERE TO INVEST MONEY TO EARN MORE INTEREST: For almost 30 years as INTEREST RATES FELL, bond funds were the place millions of average investors put their money to earn higher interest income, with relative safety. With interest rates near record lows the risk of owning these funds now somewhat offsets the potential rewards. Rule #1 in regard to bond funds: when interest rates go up, fund prices (values) fall. Rule #2: long-term fund prices fall the most. Do not invest money in long-term funds unless you are willing to bet that interest rates will fall further in 2011-2012. Instead, go with a mix of short-term and intermediate-term funds.

WHERE TO INVEST MONEY FOR GROWTH AND INCOME: In the stock funds vs. bond funds debate for 2011, stock funds are the favorite in the growth department. Bond funds are not growth investments. Frankly, I'd shy away from stock funds that invest your money in growth and smaller-company stocks that pay little or no income in the form of dividends. Instead go with general diversified stock funds that invest in large-cap company stocks that pay good dividends. It will be nice to have some dividend income in case the tide for stocks goes out. Consider putting some money in real estate stock funds for income and to add even more diversification to your portfolio.

In 2011 and 2012 the issue of where to invest money will likely focus on stock funds vs. bond funds. Gold is bound to be in the headlines as well. At over $1300 an ounce, gold has become a speculation. If you invest in gold keep one eye on the exits. The average investor needs to invest with a long-term strategy that includes both stock funds and bond funds.
