Some of you may have seen me around here for a while now. I had to take a few months away because I had a major 2-part surgery (40 days in the hospital). But today I come here for a little help and to share the Startup business I've been working on during this down time.
A little intro: I'm a Finance and Entrepreneurship college senior. I have been an entrepreneur since first year of college when I won second place in the pretty prestigious and competitive Cornell Big Idea Competition (the business I competed with went on to fail in real life )
Basically in internet marketing terms it is a membership model. Myself and my co-founders have created a web community where we hope to get 50 thousand fans to join for a yearly membership fee of 29.95 Dollars. With this membership fee, the users will collectively choose a professional soccer team to acquire and manage (that's right a real life soccer team... fantasy soccer meets reality). This team will be acquired in the Brazilian league (most bang for the buck in soccer talent). Our members will be able to decide on everything, from starting line-ups to firing the coach if they so please, to contracting new players to strengthen the team. In all essence our members will become a team's President.
For those of you from England, you may already be familiar with this startup, as there was a successful one done in England.
So, from you guys. Any entrepreneur would be stupid to turn down an opportunity to ask for feedback and opinions. So please give me yours. But most importantly I would like ideas of how to market my startup through the Internet! I have tried a few things (namely Youtube) and we are ready to try and reach out to blogs with press releases. Should I jsut post our press releases to those paid press websites? That may be a good idea.
Anyways, thanks for reading this far. I hope you find interesting.
