I ended up using Mailchimp as the newsletter sign up. I then added it to Facebook as well. Yesterday, I created the Get Your Goat Now logo, I set up the Twitter and Facebook pages, set up the blog, and I bought the domain name.
So far with the exception of the domain name, getyourgoatnow.com, and one stock photo, everything has been free (I already have a website host.) The domain cost me about $18 for two years and the stock photo set me back $7. So, what I have:
-- Order/Landing Page
-- Facebook page
-- Twitter page
-- Newsletter server

It's not the prettiest or the cleanest, but it is there. Note: anyone can do this and it doesn't matter what country you're from. It isn't rocket science. But look what I already have together in two days?
Tonight I got the Intro written and about half of the first chapter. Hmmm. I have only 7 more days.
