The Cost of Starting a Pro Food Blog
Unfortunately creating a professional blog is not free, but it is truly worth the investment. This course takes you through all the steps you need to take to create your blog. These are the same steps we took to create Put Ketchup On It – without any of the mistakes.
There are two main investments you need to make to create your own professional blog:
- Hosting – To build a blog that you have full control over and can create an income from, you will need to purchase web hosting. All in one websites will limit the development you can make to your blog and will also restrict the implementation of incomes streams that would otherwise be available to you.
- A Quality Theme – We have tried many free themes and without fail, we have come to a point where we either needed to upgrade to the paid version or change the theme altogether. Getting the right theme from the beginning will remove all frustration and set you on the correct path.
What are the costs?
Hosting will cost approximately $10.95 per month on a monthly plan. However, if you pay 3 years upfront you can get a large discount. In fact we currently provide you with a discount code for Hostgator that will give you 60% off, which means you pay between $100 and $250 depending on the plan you select. Purchasing a theme is a one time cost and we recommend the Foodie Pro theme with Genesis Framework at $129.95
Start a Pro Food Blog Course = $24.99 with 50% off sale price
Hosting (3yrs including security & backup) = $140 with 60% off discount code
Theme & Framework = $129.95
Total = $295
It may seem like a large investment just now, but I guarantee it is worth it. We started out trying to avoid these costs and after and incredible amount of time and work, we realized that to make our food blog work we needed to start over from scratch the right way. We want you to avoid our mistakes, which is why within the course we recommend the hosting provider and theme that we use ourselves and take you step by step how to set them up.
Once you have purchased your hosting & theme, you can just follow the steps of the course with no more costs and you will have a pro food blog up and running in no time.
