Often I’m asked How Much Does it Costs to Have a WordPress Blog, and operate my business online. Before getting started with a website and WordPress you should make sure you’re committed to following through.
The last thing you ever want is to forget to pay for your renewal on your website domain, let your hosting lapse and have your website disappear. You’ll also be capturing leads and building a list.
Your email list should have an autoresponder and needs to be hosted through a reliable company, like Aweber that helps you automate much of your follow up.
Here’s a Breakdown of the Costs to Host Your Blog:
So, for around $50 you can get started.
You need to allow roughly $35 per month in recurring costs.
If you want, you can add Aweber later, but I do recommend you start with Aweber so you can start building your list of subscribers right away.
If you don’t want to deal with monthly charges, I believe your hosting company and Aweber will allow you to pay for a full year up-front, and you’ll receive a discount for doing so.
Are you ready to get started?
