If you are not familiar with the tools used on the Internet, you may think that starting a blog is very expensive and complicated. And maybe you are partly right, since for many years starting web pages was something that involved a lot of money and that only a few people could do it.
But today in the middle of 2018, things have changed and improved a lot. Nowadays it is not necessary to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to create a blog or a Web page.
Let’s see what are the basic costs that are required to cover to start a blog.
NOTE: I mean starting a blog with a domain and hosting, not with platforms such as Blogger or WordPress.com since you are free but not so many advantages and benefits. A PROFESSIONAL blog will always be in a domain and own hosting.
Hosting : $ 9.99 per month.
Domain : $ 9.99 per year (approximately)
WordPress installation: $ 0.00
Essential plugins : $ 0.00
WordPress template: can be premium, which would cost approximately $ 50 or $ 70 usd or can also be a free, so it would be $ 0.00
Optimization Internal SEO: $ 0.00
Total: $ 10.00 usd to start and then $ 9.99 usd per month (for hosting). If you buy a premium template it would go up to $ 60- $ 80 usd.
Whatever you decide on the WordPress template, the quantities are really low, especially if you use a free one.
As you can see, creating a blog is very accessible to everyone and the benefits of having it in a domain of our property are unmatched.
Now that you know how much it costs to start a blog, it’s the perfect time to take action and start as soon as possible. Before taking the first steps, it is important that you know what topic you want your blog to address or which niche market you are going to choose.
