    Hi All,

    I don't know if someone like me ever has this dilemma (probably yes). I have this idea but need to pay $1200 for the script and $60 per month for VPS . I can start my idea without paying for the script (I can use Joomla to make something similar) and i can use my shared hosting but somehow I like to start more professional. So I don't know if this makes sense for someone but what do you think ? Do i need to invest right away or wait for the moment when i will start seeing some revenue ?

    Thanks

    I say test the waters with a trial on your cheap setup.

    You are hesitating.

    Just think rationally about this - can you afford to lose the 1,2k$? Is this a big risk venture? I meant, just gather some facts together and make a decision. Nobody here can tell you, what we can tell you is to not hesitate, thats what you seem to be doing.

    Hit me up via PM or Skype - I may be able to help you out with the VPS if there's something in it for me

    Yeah, I def think you should test first. Regardless if it takes more work, it would be worth it incase things don't pan out as they so often don't :-/ Good luck!

    The bigest problem right now is the Script ($1200) . This is the biggest investment. I can make something similar with Joomla but not going to look professional and I thing with my idea my website needs to have more professional and authority look.

    Time is money, so if you think it is going to take a long time to do what it takes, go the $1,200 route.

    If you think that the idea will a boom or at least make nice revenue to recover your investment AND can afford it to start, then go for it!

    ps. Its $1000 considered a big amount to invest?

    This is how i see the investment :

    $1200 Script + at least 6 months for VPS before i can see some money $60 ($360) + Article + Press releases = You can do the math :)

    And NO this is not big investment if you make money and reinvest :) But i'm working and taking money from my day job to pay for that .
