My name is Richard.
I am looking forward to my new and exciting business as a social network provider. I got the idea from having Apple iTunes selling music for less than a buck per song and 2 bucks for a music video.
I also like Youtube allowing people to post their own videos online for free.
Napster, I had Napster, and I like the opportunity to just pay a service fee to listen to an unlimited amount of songs on their website without downloading it.
My Space is a great general social networking website where people talk about anything.
The first business I plan on opening up is the Music Social Website.
On this site, I plan on creating a My space type social network solely for new, and unheard of Musicians around the world, with the combination of selling their songs and albums to their listeners to download, and as well as for the music artist to film their music videos and allow their fans to download their Music Videos just like itunes sell music with labels for a fee. However, I would also include a Napster like service where anyone can view an artist work (Music & Videos) but at the same time having a tight security to prevent the viewers from downloading the content without paying for them.
Advertisers will fund this business heavily, as well as income from media download which would be shared with the artist.
The other Business I plan is a news media company.
Actually two of them. One site is a dot com, and another is a dot tv.
First the dot com media business would be a free service to everyone wanting to get the latest news from around the world. The website would be a compilation of news media from around the world using both text and video content.
Here is my problem. I need to know how to get the news content from the news company that published the content. It would kind of be like Google, but I wold like the content to be fully readable from my website just like a newspaper. In fact, I want it to be an online newspaper for members can read news from different news provider directly from my website. Also the Videos that were released from the News Media.
The dot tv business would be a social website for journalists to post their own news worthy content online for free and be able to share it with millions of people around the world.
What do you think about my idea?
I hope to hear feedback from allot of people on what you think my business would become of.
