Many times we have ideas of the social enterprises we want to launch. We can see it. Feel the impact of it. Yet we never launch, and if it is never started, guess what...it will never get accomplished! But you know this. So why haven't you started? Why are you still sitting on your idea without going forward? Commonly it's a lack of finance.
We think that a lot of money is needed.
A large part of the reason that I am working on this site is because I want to encourage and inspire people that you can begin, especially online, for VERY little cost. I have been doing some video blogs. At first I thought, maybe I should invest in a really good camera and mic. Then I realised, many of you watching this will not have access to that. So I wanted to do it with what I had: a computer. I know you all have that.
All I have made on my site has been on a very minimal budget.
Here are the tools I used:
I built my site on Wordpress.org which is -$0
I bought a Wordpress.org premium theme from Themeforest -$35.
- WooThemes also has great premium themes.
For website hosting I used which is $5.95/ mo. but I paid in bulk for two years so it was $155.
- Bluehost is great because is has a quick one click install for Wordpress.
Video Hosting -Blip.tv
Everything else I have put into this site has been sweat equity! That's it.. now you can get started.
