Would you believe it if I told you that I started out online with only $0.00 and now I am making $XXX.xx from this blog?
Really hard to believe isn’t it?
Well the truth is, I’m not lying and it took a lot of work to reach where I am today.
Starting a blog with a low budget may be challenging for many but it can work. I started with $0.00 and today I am making lots of profit from my blog.
How I Created A Blog With A Low Budget
First of all, I didn’t start with this blog. I had a few other sites and sad to say that I didn’t know what I was doing so all of those sites failed.
I first had a simple mobile site, it was a chatroom for mobile phone users. I then had a website catering to dog owners. I had static websites on various topics. I even had a forum.
All of those sites that I had were on free hosts. I was a newbie to creating websites and had no money to pay for hosting.
But what I did was to place a few ads on my other sites. I made a few bucks, saved it up and then I started this blog.
I had less than $100 to make this blog a success and I am happy to say that it is on that way to success.
Creating A Website On A Budget
Let’s say you have $100 to start your website or blog, what are the things that you would purchase?
Write down the things that you would get for your website or blog.
How many things would you buy for to start that site?
Would you purchase 3 things to start? 4 Things? Or 5 things?
Well for me, I would only purchase 2 things to start my site. I would purchase a domain name for my site and also reliable hosting.
This is the exact same thing that I did. Domain for 1 year cost on an average $10 and for host per month is about $5, $10, or more…(depending on the hosting package that you choose). I purchased hosting for about 6 months. I build on my blog, work with the other free resources that I had, made a few more bucks and this is how I got to where I am today.
Use Coupons With Your Budget
When you are ready to start your blog with whatever budget that you have, why not search for coupons online to help you stretch your money a little further.
Using coupons can save you a great deal in having to spend much money and you can also get other things that you need to carve your website the way that you want it.
What you can do is find some coupon codes site and see if there are any coupons which you can use to help cut back on your spending.
People even use coupons to in supermarkets, in a clothes store and other places, so why not use it online to help you start your site.
Low Budget Means Little… OR No Advertising Opportunities
In order to make money from this blog I knew I had to get traffic to it. But with a low budget, how would I able to advertise my blog so that I can let people know that I have created a blog?
Well this is where guest blogging and blog commenting comes in.
Guest posting and blog commenting plays a big role when it comes to getting targeted traffic to your blog. One thing that you should keep in mind when doing both is to do it on a regular basis.
If you only do one guest post per month or only one comment on a blog per day, then you wouldn’t get the real results that you want to see. You have to be constantly doing these things (guest posting and blog commenting).
Write the best quality guest posts as well and leave a link or two back to your blog. When commenting, leave up-building comments and also reply to your comments when you do a guest post.
No matter how low your budget is, you can still create a blog or website, work on building it up and making it successful.
