Okay so one decides to enter into a program and get going with an Online Home Based business, what are the ACTUAL start-up costs one should be looking at realistically? The first cost for many going into a Home based online business is a course, or program, such as Profit Lance. But then there is the costs to get hosting, site development, registering with something like Clickbank or Commission Junction, business incorporation, getting a business bank account, advertising, accountants and legal advice, and well...there is a lot more costs than just buying a program that tells you how to make money before you DO make money. The costs are more than just the Course/Program costs so, what kind of ball-park figure can one expect to be encountering. btw, I have and do run different businesses from home (traditional types) where one could accurately forecast and budget for start-up costs, as well as maintenance advertising costs for the first 6 months of business, but, with this type of venture, many of the costs are hidden initially. So, any idea as to what one would see as a average total cost for a new start-up??
