Scam are bad investments. There are scammers every where, from domain sellers all the way to guest post sellers.

Everything has a price.
If you know how to do it, it can be cheap or even free. Otherwise, it can be pretty pricey.
This is no unnecessary expenses because we don't know what you are capable of.

Buying a premium theme, buying premium plugins just because you like them and not because you need them. People think they need to have everything from the start but most free stuff is enough to start with.

Buying themes and hiring an web designer is the worst expense for all , as they would take over 400 dollars min to make an blogging site , in that budget you can start with an free theme and carry forward with quality content over .

Plus expensive hosting and even vps, wasting time on design and logo.

Buying themes and plugins could be completely unnecessary when you are just starting out. To start a blog, all you need is a free theme something like Astra or GeneratePress will be enough. And there are great free alternatives to speed up your WordPress site as well. So don't spend money on anything that's not important yet. Yes, once your site goes big and starts yielding money, you can buy premium themes, plugins to do more things but buying them all when you are starting out isn't probably a good idea.

Relying on smm panels and having blind trust on marketers , make your own move by analysis then put your money on it

After the recent updates google has launched, relying on tools to target the most feasible keywords seems like a big waste and to some extent, backfiring. You pour in your content, link and other budgets right after you select the keywords. And relying on the wrong keyword ruins it all.

Good point, and even the paid stuff can be gotten for free most times.

Investing in the hosting at the very beginning when you can easily start with free Wordpress.com blog and later upgrade to the higher plan.
