What Is The Cost Of Starting An Online Business?



What is the cost of starting an online business?

Well, as the old saying goes, how long is a piece of string?

Dollars and Euro SymbolsIt really all depends on what sort of online business you wish to start. Do you want to start up an ecommerce store with loads of products? Or some sort of membership site with lots of coding to get the site up and running?

Many online gigs will require paying for outsourcing to get a website created, filled with content, maybe purchasing stock to sell. Unless you’re an expert at everything it’ll be hard to do most online businesses all by yourself. However, there are businesses you can do online that you can run by yourself and cost very little to get started.


Start An Online Business For Next To Nothing

That’s right. It is possible to start some online businesses for virtually zero dollars. How many businesses in the world could make that kind of claim? But that’s the beauty of the online world. Often you are just creating a website from home with little to no overheads. No renting office space, decking out a store, commuting to and from your place of business. It can all be done from the comfort of your own home.

So, that being said, if you could start learning how to set up an online business from scratch today and it was going to cost you zero dollars just to get started, would you be interested?


Get Started With Free Training

This is no scam. This is about training so you can learn how to start your business with little to no experience and get building your very first money-making website. The first stage of the training is free, giving you a taste of what it’s all about to see if its something you want to do. There’s no obligation to continue, but if you really want to learn it all from start to finish, then yes, there is a paid upgrade option which is paid month to month and can be cancelled at any time. If you get through all the training quickly, then obviously the less you would pay if you decide to cancel your membership after finishing the courses.


Learn Online Marketing The Wealthy Affiliate Way

If you don’t know what Wealthy Affiliate is, it’s a community of members and a training platform. It teaches you the correct way to set up a website so it finds favour with the search engines. This in turn gets traffic to your site. You will learn how to fill out your site with quality content and monetise it with relevant affiliate offerings and advertisements.

The training consists of tutorials and videos and is really easy to follow. Anyone can do it, no matter how young or old, whether you are tech savvy or a complete bunny. It’s like the idiot’s guide to affiliate marketing, it’s so simple. You don’t even have to be interested in affiliate marketing to do this. No matter what kind of website you want to create or for what purpose, the Wealthy Affiliate training will teach you the right way to go about it.


Do You Have A Passion?

If you have a passion or an intense interest for anything at all, then you can make money online. Doesn’t matter what it is, if you are interested enough that you could post stuff on your website about it, then you can get traffic to your site and make money online.


You Don’t Need To Be A Writer

If you are a writer, then of course that helps, but you don’t need to be some English Lit graduate to do this business. And if you really are not confident about your ability to write some website content, then using the services of a freelancer site will soon get you loads of content for ridiculously cheap prices.


So, What Is The Cost Of Starting An Online Business?

In this case, zero to get started on the training. You can even create and host 2 websites for free on Wealthy Affiliate as a Starter Member as well. So far it’s still zero dollars.

If you want to get more serious about your business and really learn how to do it properly, then the paid upgrade on WA to access all the training and everything else this great community has to offer is $49 a month. With that you can create and host up to 50 websites! That’s heaps. You get access to all the official training, plus all the training that many members contribute to the community. On top of that, other members on WA are always there to help you out whenever you get stuck and need to know something.

The next expense would be to buy a domain name for your website. For the first year that’ll generally only set you back between $3-$5. Other than that it’s just about having an internet connection (which you probably already have anyway) and a computer or a tablet to work from.

This really is a cheap and simple business model to get started making money online. It’s what I do and millions of other people around the globe do as well.

    • Hi. It depends on the video, but I usually just right click on the video (say a video in YouTube) and copy the embed code. I then place that embed code in the section of my post where I want the video to appear. If using Word Press, in the ‘text editor’ area and not the ‘visual editor’.

  1. Loves ur sites .. it’s really detailed & thorough… I’ve just started as well… still in the learning process… Hope to learn more about it here.. It can be quite confusing at first, but with all the help & personal advice you can get in the websites, there’s just nothing to be afraid about.

    • Hi Chris. Yes there is nothing to be afraid of. It’s all about deciding to take action to get started. Just do the training at Wealthy Affiliate and follow it a step at a time. To your success!

  2. Many people worry about prices and costs and for good reason.

    I think the fact that the Wealthy Affiliate platform offers a free account, giving people a chance to see what advantages an online business can bring them is a good thing.

    A free account is the chance to see if it fits a person even before paying any money.
