Since most of all startup websites fail the 1st time around...and you understand that...I'd like to know what plans you have going forward for your
SECOND internet venture when it does?
Also, its extremely important to plan WHERE you will advertise this site, how you will, how much money youll spend paying for it to be
advertised...all -so you can realize your dream. Have you thought of that? The world needs to know you are even out there. Just making a website means
nothing. To be successful, you have to promote it ($$$) in a lot of different places and for a lot of different demographics.
You can obtain quarterly demographics from your area and areas you'd like to do business in. Who listens to what, how many go to a certain type of
website, soaps, what kind of cars folks drive, and things people buy, etc. All are available as a planning tool for your site. ie: a music website may
do great in a University area, and not so good in an affluent neighborhood.(s)-cities-areas.
And its all about how much time everyday you will put into it...(and knowing that over 80% fo 1st startups fail as well no matter how much money and
time each day into making it work). So have you got the time? The ad money if needed? The connections? Have you planned all this? You have to have
ways of making people visit your site.
If you have...then you stand better than a 50% chance of being in that percentage that is successful.
*(I helped design several websites for some friends, writing HTML code as well for them. They fully expected the sites to do what each
promised...until they figured out they never thought of HOW people would even visit the sites, let alone join them). Those sites, even well designed,
informative and attractive, faile because they never planned to put any work or daily maintanence into them. They just thought of putting up a
website. A lot of time, planning and money to fail.)
Seriously...plan, plan and read up on new websites. I wish you the best! Go for it!
