For many entrepreneurs, they go into an internet business with the intent of making money, not spending money. Nobody likes to invest money in start-up costs, but sometimes it is the case that money is needed to get going. A lot of persons are wondering if is doable to start a free internet business.
To answer this question, it is not possible to start a completely free internet business. The reason for this is because there are a couple of minor charges you will face. The two things you will have to spend money on to get your business going is your domain name and your hosting.
Domain names can be extremely cheap to purchase. You can find domain names as low as $1.99. The tricky part is finding a place that you can purchase a quality name for your business. You want to find a name that includes your business name or product within the domain name. Also, try to keep the name as short as possible.
Hosting can be extremely cheap as well. If you do a Google search for cheap hosting, the top result will give you the top 10 cheap hosting companies available today. A few on the list include InMotion, HostMonster, and GoDaddy. Each of these is under $5 per month. And if you go to the right place, a free domain name will be included as well.
So while it is not completely possible to start a free internet business, it is extremely cheap to get one going. All other costs are up to you. Some people opt to pay for advertising to generate traffic quicker to their sites. Paying for advertising will certainly get you traffic quicker. But if you do not want to spend money on advertising, free advertising can be just as effective.
Another thing people typically pay for on the internet is facets they are not the best at. For example, many people pay to have articles and content written for their site. Many other people will pay to have their web site designed and pay for graphics to include on their site.
Aside from the domain name and hosting, any other charges are up to you. If you are fairly knowledgeable on the internet, you do not have to spend any more money to have success on the internet. But you can benefit to pay a decent writer or graphic designer if you are lacking in these areas.
