The site is basically a guide to the country I reside in, a guide to the good AND bad. People have even told me they've used my site to fully plan their vacation, which made me feel all fuzzy and warm...
Now, with my wife fully on board (she's a great saleswoman and has a few hours spare during the week after going part-time), we've decided to give this site a real GO. But my question is, HOW?
I've scoured the forums here many a time, and have loads of ideas floating about in my head. But how do I make this site work - without converting it into an ad-riddled monster?
People have told us we need a business plan, a business plan, and, of course, a business plan.
But do we really?
My thoughts are leaning towards getting a Facebook fan page for the site, making it go viral with some nice prizes, building a list through that, and generally getting some decent advertisers on board.
But what do you guys think? Any suggestions? Any sure-fire tricks to get people on to a list, or to get advertisers begging for an ad spot on my site?
