A lot of people ask, what is the start-up costs for internet marketing? However few people really know the answer to this, because it's not just the money but the time you spend on your business. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about the expenses for an online business.
How much does a domain name cost?
This one is tricky because it depends on who you buy the name through. On average it usually costs between $ 10 to $ 15, if you go through a site like GoDaddy they have so many up-sells and add-on options that you can easily spend $ 50 on a domain name.
How much does a hosting account cost?
Most hosting accounts have a monthly option now which is affordable or a yearly plan that costs more upfront but you save in the long run. You can get hosting for around $ 10 a month or $ 90 a year on average.
How much does an auto-responder cost?
I have only used Aweber, they are easy to use and very reliable. They start off at $ 19 a month and as you list grows the price goes up. As far as easy to work with and reliable I recommend Aweber.
Can I get a domain name or hosting account for free?
The answer to this is absolutely yes, the bad part is you will always have the hosting account name in front of your domain name you pick. Like onlineforbusiness.blogger.com, if you can not afford a domain name or hosting yet go to Blogger.com they can get you started. They are easy to work with and you can monetize your site using AdSense, and Amazon.
OK so there you have it those questions and answers should help you in understanding what internet marketing start-up costs will be. Do a little research and find what feels comfortable for you.
