Thinking of Joining The DogSmith? Read on …
For most small business owners it can be financially restrictive to develop a top class website, develop branded marketing materials, client handouts, business apps and client interface systems. It can also be time prohibitive to develop all the tools and resources you need to support your brand and market your product. On top of that you have to ponder how you can achieve expertise at financially managing your business, developing a marketing plan, hiring and training employees, and all the other nuances of running an effective and profitable business.
Going It Alone Is Too Expensive
Think about how much it would cost you to start up your business and then operate it each month:
Typical start up fees, just the absolute necessities
- Website - average for a professional website $650.00 this dos not include monthly hosting, backups and tweaks
- Marketing collateral – design of just two pieces that invoke a professional marketeer and a graphic designer $500.00
- Purchase group training and private training apps $600.00 with ongoing monthly expenses
- Email account - $50.00
Then you will have ongoing monthly fees like this, these are just the basics!
