How To Start A Startup For Less Than $200 – A legit step by step guide PART 1 of 7What’s up Alphas!
Congratulations! If you’ve stumbled across this website and are reading this article, you have officially taken the first step towards building the lifestyle of your dreams.
The purpose of this guide is to teach you all of the skills that you will need to build your first website from start to finish for less than $200. We’re not selling any products here, all this information is free and I encourage you to share it with as many people as possible.
First of all, let’s have a quick reality check.
If you think that you are going to take $200, build your website and start pumping out cash on cruise control, allowing you to quit your job and sail off into the sunset… You’ve probably been subjected to too many YouTube ads perhaps featuring a dude in a garage claiming to read a book a day.
The reality of the situation is that you will likely look back on your first creation in a years time and say “WOW! What piece of crap” (I know I did).
This is not because I‘m going to teach you how to build a shitty product or provide you with rookie advice. It is simply because within a years time you will of progressed your development skills to such a high level that this first creation of yours will seem amateur at best. Picture the very first time you ever drove a car and then compare it with your driving skills today, the same logic applies here.

The purpose of this guide is not to teach you how to make money online with some magical formula; we will dig into legitimate monetization strategies later. This guides purpose is simply to teach our community a set of skills that will allow them to enter into the world of online business as painlessly and as streamlined as possible.
So let’s get started!
I’m going to break down the process into several different components in an attempt to make everything easy to digest and even easier to execute. The following is an overview of the 7 main components that we will cover.
- INTRODUCTION TO OUTSOURCING
- BUSINESS IDEA GENERATION
- FINDING AND BUYING A GOOD .COM DOMAIN
- LOGO DESIGN AND BRANDING
- WEBSITE TEMPLATE SELECTION AND CUSTOMIZATION
- SERVER SETUP AND HOSTING
- CODING AND PROJECT WRAP UP
INTRODUCTION TO OUTSOURCING
Now the first thing to understand is that anyone can do this. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. Don’t look at this process and think to yourself “This is too hard, there’s no way I’ll be able to do it”. The reality is that YES you can and your not even going to need any kind of amazing technical skills or prior experience to make it happen.

To put things into perspective, let’s take a look at where my journey began. I grew up in 5 foster homes, dropped out of high school in grade 10 and spent over a decade working a job I hated in the Canadian oilfield. I was 30 years old, depressed, lonely and had been living paycheck to paycheck my entire life. I had only had 2 short-term girlfriends (one of which had just dumped me), my computer skills consisted of playing games and checking emails and I truly believed that I was the definition of a failure. It was rough. On paper, things didn’t look good…. Many would argue that the odds did not appear to be stacked in my favor.
Three and a half years later and everything has changed…. Take a look around you. What you will see is my creativity and ideas brought to life. Legitimate, cool things that I have willed into existence with this newly developed skill set.
Chances are that you have feelings of uncertainty and self-doubt. Don’t worry, it’s okay and it’s perfectly normal. I just want you to know that I got your back and I’m here to help you through this process. Stick with this guide, engage with our elite community and you will be building cool stuff within no time. Guaranteed!
Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention a fascinating part. I didn’t have to learn how to write a single line of code, I don’t have very good design skills and my actual technical computer ability, although above average, leaves much to be desired.
So how is it possible that I am able to build all of this cool stuff? Well, the answer is outsourcing!

Outsourcing is defined as the process in which individuals outside of your immediate company are hired to perform specific tasks. I’m going to teach you how to connect with high-level professionals capable of producing amazing online creations for a fraction of the cost that you would traditionally pay.
Now your first challenge is to imagine. What kind of financial opportunities immediately pop into your head. What could you build that others would find of value? What ideas have you always wanted to bring to life? Can you see the possibilities staring back at you?
This knowledge is something that I’ve taught to my mom, I’ve shown friends and is something I will soon be teaching my 12-year-old niece. Others have done it, I have done it and you can do it too. No excuses!
