Get just TWO items and you can be in business online.
One thing I love best about Internet marketing is that the financial barrier to entry is low. In other words, it doesn’t cost much at all, meaning that anyone with a little bit of money can start a business.
Assuming that you already have a computer that is connected to the Internet, here are the TWO basic services that you’ll need along with their estimated costs:
A domain name
You can register your domain name at GoDaddy for as little as $9.99 for a .com name, or get it included when you set up your web hosting service (see next item).
A web hosting service
My favorite web hosting service to recommend to new webmasters is BlueHost which is as little as 6.95 per month (when you buy a 2-year hosting package) and includes your domain name registration. I also list a number of other recommended web hosts here.
But just getting a web site started doesn’t require anything beyond having a domain name and web hosting.
About $7.00 a month – or $27.00 per month with the autoresponder.
