Ok first of all.. no beggers saying "can I have your isk" as begging is against the rules.

I am thinking about selling offer some very pricey assests which will fetch me about 2,500,000,000.00 ISK (2.5 Billion). What kind of things are worth investing in if I want to make more money? Is it worth getting my production skills up and buying a Raven or Megathron BPO and mass produce them?

I am basically looking at short term investments 2 weeks or so.

An ideas what be great.

Buy a really expensive faction mod.. drop it in a secure can in a safe spot in system and cloak nearby... give the mod to the first person that successfully finds your can via directional scanner

Invest it in DubanFP Enterprizes. I'm not 100% sure what we do, but we will make good use of your isk. ^^.

Seriously though? No idea.

lol 2.5 billion wont let you mass produce mega or raven. You could build 30 if you had the BPO already, but since you don't you will be able to produce 15 or 20. And don't expect to get your money back in 2 weeks, you won't even have the BPO researched in two weeks.

You won't get anything if you don't do something actually. It will be a lot of work. The only thing that gets you money while you sleep is research.

Since you like Megathrons and Raven you could buy them where they are cheap, drive them and sell them where they are expensive. Say you buy 25 of them if you sell them back 10M more you get 250M which is 10% revenue. It's a LOT of work though and it might take longer than 2 weeks to get money back.

Tech 1 ship production is only profitable in parts of 0.0. In empire, mineral prices are too high and ship prices too low for it to be worth it.

He'd be better off buying salvage materials in Motsu, Dodixie or a similar system, transporting them to Jita in one go in a frigate and selling them.

Investing into BS BPO is not a short term plan. It won't pay for itself for a looooong looong time. Someone suggested speculation on the market...which I find profitable to a point but only a side business. There are no easy ways to get rich other than trying to scam people in contracts.

buy a freighter and do interregional tradeing.

hauling bs to mission hubs as well as ammo and t2 mods can be really worth it.

even if you only make 10mil/bs profit (which rich runners/pvpers will easily pay) you have doubled your money after less than 10 cycles...

What he said^

Also, if you've bought a bs bpo, you wouldn't lose any money on it. It'd be a nice asset to have. If you go and do something like speculate on the market there's a good chance you'd **** up and lose your money.

How can someone with 2.5 bill isk NOT know what to invest it in?
Somehow you made that 2.5 bill? just keep doing what you did to get the first 2.5 bill. After 1 bill isk it pretty much works itself.
If you havent bought it that is :p

Just buy and sell really high-end items where the profit margins are huge. 1billion isk+ for some mods and even a paltry 10% profit is still 100+mil. Start flipping several of those each week, maybe even score a major one and the billions will add up quicker than you can spend it.

Q: What should I do with my ISK?

A: Get it all in 1 ISK notes and put it in a gigantic mansion with a diving board and swim around in it like Scrooge McDuck.

I think the best investment would be to keep it in your wallet.

Market PVP, use it to buy/resell mods. Will net you a good profit over a few days.

Get a freighter - Thats 1 billion spent. There are a MULTITUDE of ways that a freighter pilot can make tonnes of lovely ISK.

Its a VERY lucrative, if slightly boring passtime. I myself, enjoy it. But probably only because the rewards make up for the boredom of trekking across systems far slower than everyone else. There is also a certain amount of risk, in more ways than one. But thats part of the fun for me.

Combining trading, hauling, and courier missions (for which 1.5 billion left over to use as collateral is very important) can make you very rich.
