The rough sketch of my plan is to have a health website devoted to a certain niche of disease sufferers. I am a fellow sufferer of that disease and I have accumulated a lot of information, scientific in origin, in how to treat or manage it. I won't be selling any products, requiring a subscription, or having advertisements. Any funds that come in will be through a donation-based feature that I feel would be exercised when a user feels gracious enough after having benefited from the free information.
Marketing is another function I need to figure out. Because I'll have a relatively low budget at the time of startup, maybe $200 a month at most for advertising, I thought of focusing on social media marketing since it would be a trusted site that users would likely refer others to.
My question is could I learn most of the functions myself by then? Or is it smartest to just outsource?
Is the idea of a nonprofit like this sound? Has it been tried?
