If I had $1,500 to start my online business, this is what I’d do

If you’re starting an online business, it’s SO hard to decide where to spend your money, and we’re living in a day and age where it’s so incredibly easy to start a business.

Back when I started my career in Marketing and thinking of the types of businesses we’d work with – you needed a lot of capital to get a company up and off the ground. If you had a bricks and mortar business – you had to pay rent, purchase equipment and hire staff, and then in order to market your business, you’d have to pay thousands to use the available advertising channels at the time to get the word out – you’d be spending hours and hours walking around and putting flyers in letterboxes, investing oodles of money into TV, radio and newspaper ads.

But today, you need none of that. It’s literally so much easier to start your business, and you can do it all online.

Now I invested a little differently in my business when I was starting out because I already had a website and some other bits and pieces, but if I was a beginner, this is where I’d invest my money:

In this episode, I share:

  • Where I’d invest my first $1,500 to get up and running
  • What I’d use for free until I got my first clients
  • How I’d reinvest into the business my next $1,500 and next $1,500 after that
  • The things I wouldn’t invest in if I was just starting out and didn’t have any clients

Grab a pen and paper and tune into today’s episode and reach out on Instagram @launcheasylife to let me know what you think!

And P.S. If you’ve invested differently in your business, no regrets! It’s all things we spend money on differently and you’re most welcome to spend more or less (I spent $5,500+ to get my business up and running – but I always had the mindset that it was a temporary loan, and then committed to putting in the work and showing up to earn that money back… and I did).
