One thing you can do is to go higher table, but be were that its a risc, but thats poker

Steady gains, steady gains. Read the articles on bankroll maintenance and exercise patience. Going up a level typically brings with it tougher players, and without proper bankroll to back you up you will be busto again. Good luck!
hi ive got 1 for you to do, at the poker site you play on try gaining to the highest V.I.P level there is, every month try going up 1 level at a time, i was doing the same at vc poker until, l they lowerd the action points and i was losing out on action points every month, so i have to find a new poker site with better rake and action points,
while doing this target you will get a good rake back at the end of the month, plus loads of actions points to spend on tourney tokens and in the action point store,

Play max 1$ buy in sit and go´s and 2nl cashgames atleast until 100-125$ if you are seriously trying to raise ur bankroll to heights then you will have to start from the stakes where its basically impossible to go broke. I suggest to read thru whole bankrollmanagement lessons.
Later on if you get exp try playing multitable sessions, that keeps the variance allright and the swings are not breathtaking.
oll1e999, by now you should know what kind of game is your strongest point: cash game, sit & go or MTT. Play that game applying classical bankroll management rules: 40 buy-ins for sit & go and MTTs, 25 buy-ins for cash games. It means that with your 50 $ you can play now NL4 cash games and sit & goes/MTTs with buy-in not higher than 1.25$. When you have 100 $ come here for more advice Any other strategy will take back to 0. And don't forget. Play only the type of game you are strong at. You can't experiment with game variety with your bankroll. Experiment in freerolls.
