    You are going to have your work cut out for you as there are thousands of news websites out there.

    You really haven't given enough information about what type of news you will be reporting on, Niche, Location, etc. so it is very hard to give any advise.

    You say you have 5 Staff working for you are they paid? the reason I ask is that will show that you have some cash to play with and maybe you could put some of it into advertising.

    The best advise I can give with the limited information is put up some great stories and spread the word on social media, advertise and advertise then advertise some more.

    Only print "good" news to counteract all the negativity in the media.

    Here is an example: 99.27% of all people in the world lived this year. Of the deaths that occur each year only 2.84% are intentional (suicide, violence, war). But I haven't seen that on the news. World Population Clock: 7.3 Billion People (2015) - Worldometers

      Very good tips. Thanks for the responses. The news website is location based. I want to get news from all the nooks and crannies of our location by making people send in information of what is happening in their area which secular news may not pickup.

      In return I want them to have some kind of incentive. I'm yet to decide a good incentive though....but I'm thinking of sending data bundle for browsing since internet access is a bit of a challenge.

      Secondly, I want the world to know more about the location...let it be a go to site for trust worthy high quality news source...

    Have a distinct voice.

    People can go anywhere on the web to get news. The only thing that can make visitors choose a particular news site is its voice. Be funny, or be progressive, or be conservative, or be educational for example. If you are just regurgitating press releases, visitors have no reason to go to your site rather than to Google News or any other generic news source.
