In a previous video, we discovered that hiring someone to build your business website comes at a huge up front cost. If you want specific numbers, be sure to check out that video. But in this post, I'll show you how you can set up your online business for just a fraction of the cost, and be in full control of your business and your website. You'll find out about what costs are fixed, what's optional, and where you can save yourself lots of money and headaches. Let's jump into it!
Here are some additional links and resources mentioned in today's tutorial. Enjoy!
