Startup Costs Required to Create your Own Review Website with Score
1. $56 for Web hosting. You need to purchase a domain name to have a website. That’s why I recommend Fatcow.com. WithFatcow.com you get a free domain name, unlimited storage, unlimited bandwidth, host unlimited domains, unlimited MySQL dbs and more. Currently Fatcow.com has 40% off sale which makes this a great deal.
2. $0 for Fatcow.com also offers free one click installs which you can install WordPress in 5 minutes./BuddyPress. Wordpress is completely free open source and so is BuddyPress. You can find both at WordPress.org or BuddyPress.org.
3. $40 for WordPress/. This is a one time fee to purchase the Score . There are no membership fees, no subscription fees, no reoccurring fees and no hidden fees. After you purchase the theme it totally belongs to you.
4. -$150 in Advertising Credits. Fatcow.com web hosting gives you free Advertising credits to market your website in search engines. You get $75 in Google Adword credits, $50 in Facebook Ad credits and $25 in Yahoo/Bing Adcenter credits. This is totally free to you.
So if you add up all the costs required to startup your Review Website:
Startup costs = (Webhosting + WordPress/BuddyPress + BuddyPress Theme) = $96
But if you calculate in the free Advertising credits from Fatcow.com, your startup cost will be:
( Startup costs + Advertising Credits) = -$54.
So you actually don’t pay anything to startup your Social Networking Review Website. This is an awesome deal to create such a professional website. The best thing is that there are tons of support from the WordPress/Buddypress theme community and also from Themeforest. If you have problems, you can just post a question on the forum and someone will answer you.
