Creating a website is a minor part of the time required to build a successful online business venture. Building backlinks to your website are of prime importance will determine the success or lack thereof the site.
Your domain name can be acquired from any of a number of registrars for around $10 per year. The hosting too may be available from a variety of host providers for around $10 per month. This $10 monthly sum is for a "Baby Plan" allowing additional website domains to be added at a later date without incurring further costs.
Finding a good writer is a situation that can vary quite a bit based on finding a suitable writer. I would guess that you could find a suitable writer descent in english for around $20 per article whether these articles are for keyword subjects or product reviews.
Articles for publication on your website are only the beginning of your article needs. After the website is established you will need to acquire or write multiple articles for each of your 30 keywords plus reviews.
If you plan on hiring everything out including backlink building you are probably looking at somewhere around $5,000 plus or minus. The problem is you need to be knowledgeable enough to train your virtual assistant performing SEO duties. This requires experience on your part. The only way to acquire experience is through the act of doing.
We manage over 40 website domains. When calculating the total labor costs establishing a website including minimal SEO using minimum wage standards a website will cost $5,000. However, you need to learn how to create websites before you are in a position to hire others. The direct costs without adding in a value for labor is probably only 10% of that figure.
Affiliate marketing can be quite profitable if done properly. An individual entering this field has a great deal to learn to be successful. Most of us learn this by traveling the road of hard knocks. To hire someone without having knowledge is a journey into disaster.
Affiliate marketing at best is a labor intensive business. As one grows in this business they are able to hire VA's to free up their personal labor demands. Acquiring VA's are a major training effort. It may take several months of hit and miss trying to find a suitable virtual assistant.
This business is built upon hope, sweat and persistence. I wish you luck in your endeavors. Use Affilorama to learn the basics. Learn as much as you can. Follow ONE guru at a time following their plan through fruition. To do otherwise spells absolute FAILURE.
