"$0.99 To Get Started Online - 5 Tools and Services You Can Use To Kickstart Your List Building Internet Marketing Business Today!"

NO Selling... No Affiliate Links... No Bullshit... Just Plain and Simple Straight Up Honest and Helpful Advice To Get You Started!

Hey Newbie Warriors,

First things first, this post is going to point you in the direction of various websites... I'm not affiliated to any of these in any way, every link is just a strait forward direct link to something you can use for free. The only thing you will pay for is a domain.

This whole post is simply designed to give you information and hopefully a much needed kick up the arse... A kick up the arse that'll hopefully get your internet marketing career started.

I will also not be showing you how to set any of this up, the whole point of this thread is to simply give you the tools you need to get started for almost free!

Sure paid solutions are always better, however if you are struggling... This should be more than enough to get you up and running and making a bit of money - Especially If you've got a good freebie and follow up product.

5 Almost Free Items To Build Your First Squeeze Page and Get It Hosted!

So they always say that the money is in the list and they are absolutely correct. The 5 things below are free (well all except one) and will help you build that list... All you will need to do is take action then drive traffic!

Domain Name - Its always good to have your own domain name, and that's the only thing I'm going to suggest you to spend money on today. You can get a 99 cent .com from GoDaddy and if that is too much for you to invest, you can get a .xyz for just $0.15 from Namecheap until the end of June!

Godaddy 99 Cent .com domains
Nameheap $0.15 .xyz domains

Free Hosting - You will obviously need somewhere to host your website. So luckily for you... There is a great free hosting site that will give you 100 mega bytes off cloud based hosting. It has cpanel to help you manage everything so you'll get 1 click Wordpress installation etc. (100mb is no good for wordpress)

But if you are simply creating light weight html squeeze pages for list building 100 mb is plenty enough. You can also have unlimited addon domains within the free account.

Free Auto Responder - You can get a great fee forever account auto responder account with Benchmarkemail. You get upto 2,000 subscribers and 14,000 messages every single month.

So if you have 500 subscribers you can send them an email almost every day of the month for free. That's plenty enough to get you started.

Click here to visit Benchmarkemail.com

Website Builder - Squeeze pages don't have to be fancy and if your freebie is highly targeted and solves a pressing problem it wont matter how it looks in all honesty. However you can still make pretty good quality squeeze pages for free using drag and drop what you see is what you get website software.

There are a few of these available and one of the easiest is Pagebreeze.

Click here to visit Pagebreeze

FTP Software - If you create a website or squeeze page with Pagebreeze you will need a way to upload the website files to your hosting account. The Filezilla client is the best one around and its free.

Click here to get Filezilla

That Is All You Need, So Get It and Get Started!

Basically that is all you are going to need to get started, if you search the forum for specific answers like setting up a squeeze page, creating a free report, basic email marketing, how to drive free traffic etc.

Then combine your new found knowledge with the resources above, you can get started with your new list building or affiliate marketing business for almost no money down.

You have no excuses... All you need to do is research and take action!

Hope this helps some of you,

Steve

    So basically you taught people how to purchase website and hosting and use the search function?

    Could have done that in one paragraph- no need for the big fonts and ostentation.

      Once again some troller comes along to criticize someone else's thread and leave no value.

      He is simply laying out a little checklist that newbies can use to get started if they are worried about the amount of money it takes to get started.

      How can anyone have a problem with that?

      I guess you answered that question....lol!

    Even if I agree with you that it is cheap to get started with the necessary tools, I would still recommend anyone to go for a paid hosting and a big autoresponder that is integrated with many other tools, like Aweber or GetResponse. We are talking about $20/month, and IMO, if you are not willing to spend $20/month on a business that is going to generate money for you, to get the best experience and tools, maybe you should reconsider making money online!

      That is correct but for complete newbies tight for cash and inexperienced those $20 a month can soon add u if they are not making any money.

      This is simply a very cheap reliable way to get started whilst learning and not have to worry about where their money for subscriptions is going to come from.

      Furthermore $20 might not be much for you but people from certain countries could live for a week on $20. This could give genuine people who really want to start but simply can't justify spending their families essential funds a chance to do so.

        Namecheap shared hosting is only about $4 per month, and Aweber has a free 30 day trial. So people can go the paid route for hosting and an autoresponder for much less than $20 a month.

        It's not valuable to me. I liked it because it's actionable, simple and something the noobs can really use to get something (anything) happening today.

    This is a good baseline on how to build a list and get started.
    I do agree with another posted above about using aweber or getresponse.
    The issue is getting into the inbox of the major email providers is getting harder on the daily.
    Working with a high end ESP is going to allow you to reach more of the inbox.

      Oh don't get me wrong, I really do agree that paid is better. However for some people even a small amount of money is unattainable especially on a monthly basis.

      I remember when I started online years ago and had no money. I had to complete surveys to raise money for a domain.

      I'd never have been able to afford hosting and an auto responder... Regardless of how badly I wanted to get started it was well out of my reach.

      I'm sure there are a few people on here out of the thousands of members in a similar situation. So hopefully I have helped even one of them.

      What's worse is people banging the its only cheap to go paid drum... What's cheap for them, as I said earlier could amount to a large sum of money for some people.

      In my opinion it's not right for random strangers on the Internet to make sweeping generalisations and basically say these people who can't afford to pay the "measly $20" for a paid solution have no right to be in the Internet marketing business.

      It's just plain ignorant and goes against the very basis of a forum. You're supposed to be here to help. Not demoralise someone for things they may have no control over.

      If this thread helps one such person start a profitable business it will have served it's purpose.

      Regards,

      Steve

      P.S. Sorry if this sounds like a rant at you it's not I just started answering a reply to you and it made sense to add the rest on as I went.

        Oups sorry for the last reply... wrong clic....

        You are right with your suggestions. I've friends who have lost all in their lives and who needed to start something online only to have money to pay for their food. So all what they can use were free and when you don't know what is good and what isn't in the free "market", it's often a nightmare.

        I've helped them as much as I was able to do and now some of them are able to pay high fees for great services online for their businesses and they make a really good living. without starting with only free services, it would be an other story for them.

        Thank you for your text. It is very good and it will certainly help many people.

    Great advice!

    Perhaps the most Important tool that will help you succeed In your online business is... An Autoresponder!

    It's good that you suggested BenchmarkEmail, but they use a big logo showing that you're using them for FREE In every E-mail that you send.

    Instead I suggest you to use Reachmail they have a FREE forever plan for up to 5000 subscribers and 15,000 monthly sends(much better than Benchmarkemail).

    Good luck everybody

          Thanks again for the heads up, I really need to have a good read of the rules and iron all of this out haha.

          Guess I'll just change or add Reachmail then completely leave it alone.

          Once again, thanks for the input. I appreciate it.
