"Fun" site or "professional" site?

by 11 comments
I have a site that I have had as a hobby for 3-4 years now. I am thinking of switching it from a hobby site to a site to produce a full-time income (eventually).

It is a niche site for home business moms. I am trying to decide whether or not to keep it a semi-professional tone ("_____ Home Business Moms") or have it more "fun" and quirky and have it show off more of my personality ("________ Home Biz Mamas").

Can either work? Would the "quirky" site be more "niche-ish"? Or is a more professional site better?

    Check out the other sites in that niche.

    If there are already plenty of 'serious' home business mom sites, why not try a fun and quirky site?

    Try standing out from the crowd. With the proper promotion you could end up doing quite well.

    Maybe it is too late.. but I should add my voice. Looking at your theme, a fun site would "easily get a click". Most moms love fun and those are the ones who will give you fun to work with...

    There are other themes where one must be striclty proffesional. I can't wait to see your fun site

    I feel you should stick with fun site, don't make it professional

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
