Hi everyone,

I have been web designing for a few years now. I just started a blog website on wordpress for fun and i wanted to create an official service website with wix.

Problem is im not to sure what type of service to start. I was thinking to start a Youtube marketing website. My friend has an email list of 100k + to where he now shares peoples videos and they pay him for the promotion through fiverr. We wanted to start up our own service website, do you think this is a good idea?

Also does anyone know if its a competitive niche (Youtube Marketing/Service)

Dont want people thinking there buying views, as its real people watching the video through our email list. So not quite sure if to call it youtube marketing or content marketing....

    Personally I wouldn't use wix if you want a professional site. You want one that you have hosted and bought the domain name for so you own it.

    To decide what you want to do, you need to decide what you're passionate about.

    Cheers, Laurence.

      Thank you for the advice. What would you recommend i use? wordpress.

      I am very fast learner and i have told by many people to switch over to wordpress so i think i will do.

      Do you think Youtube Marketing is worth starting up a service website. Like i said me and my friend have an email list that has 100k+ and we have been promoting peoples videos to our list for a decent price, but now we want to expand to a website service.

      Do you think this is a good idea? and if theres a market for it

    I do recommend using - not as the latter is the free service where you don't have total control. With the (dot) org, you choose your domain name and hosting company. I personally use Hosthead and fine they are great.

    I can't give you any advice regarding YouTube marketing as it's not something I have ever done, nor do I desire to do it.

    But there may be others here that do have some expertise in that area.

    Cheers, Laurence.

    Hey I agree with Laurence, that if you want to start professional website don't use wix or any such platform. But you can have your own hosting space and domain name, and you can use Wordpress by installing in your own server. You needn't to use there space at all. Yes you need to know lil more about customization on Wordpress. We at ClickPoint Solution, Web development company use Wordpress where we do complete customization of our own control.

    Having official website for business is obviously a very good idea. As some other member suggested, is something you should choose. And if if you are ready to spend few bucks, then ask a developer to built a site for you.

    I'd definitely go down the WordPress route.

    It looks more professional and you can get a domain name, a year's hosting and a theme for under 20.

    If they are real views I can see people being interested.
    I've got 99 problems but a niche ain't one

    Out of curiosity, what platform have you been using during this time if not Wordpress?
