A man is made redundant, he and his wife have their first child due end of July 2017...and, they need the bank to say yes to more finance, to complete a renovation that will make their hose liveable.
It's me... decided to look at this thing, of making money on the internet. I'm looking at affiliate marketing, blogging, and e-courses. Following "a few people on the internet", of note:
Find a niche
Get a list,; and
Sell them stuff.....Seemed easy enough.
I spent a lonnnng time trying to fins his niche. Then a lonnng time deciding on a domain name. But then the learning curve takes a sharp upward turn.
See, I got hosting, trying to build my site on wordpress...brought a premium theme and then after a lot of mucking around..I thought....farrrk, how hard is this going to be.
Then there is the disclaimers you need in the footer....jesus....this is batshit crazy
Now, then I find I need a payment process account (Stripe) - something else to work out how to use,
Drip email sequence autoresponder - $41/month, still need to work out how to use this,
Gravity forms - but to have a quiz plugin included it's $199/year
Video hosting $99/month
Then thereis building landing pages, thankyou pages, confirmation pages and the like with leadpages....that's more bloody money.
Then paying for traffic and ads....
How much does it REALLY cost to have website that will make money from blogging and e-courses...and recommending a "book of the month" for an affiliate sale.
Why isn't there just one service that can do it all...it's 2017 for christ's sake....aaaaaargh
