So This is what got us here. The entire blueprint to go from an idea to being ready to take on our first client.
So today I partnered with the first charity and am ready to get this bad boy going.
Costs so far:
$450 web design
$100 Twitter and Banner ad design
$500 Web Development
$100 Charity Donation
At the end of the day, building your local site with these methods and working and learning online marketing in a systematic way, will be the cheapest real word education you could get. A $1,000 MBA!
Thanks for hanging around on this crazy ride. 2014 will be fun! 🙂
