Finally, I have started working full-time (after quitting my job) towards my first new venture (kind of exciting!!)- a career guidance website for recent grads (who aren`t very clear on which career path they gotta choose keeping their long term goals in mind etc). I did research the market and couldnt find good websites on the topic and since I have been contacted by lots of people for career advice and also I have lot of good ideas to incorporate from my diverse experiences --I choose this topic to explore on the net. I have lots of questions though with regard to my new venture and i hope to get advice from other experienced entrepreneurs
Q1. Since I am in India, do you think I should focus on Indian consumers (students) or should I keep it general ???? (since I have been in USA for couple of years--I do have a idea of consumer base over there). For eg. in website should focus on the resources available in India or keep it global.
Q2. Also, what is the best way to organize ur web content? Are there any good examples available??
Q3. I am planning to earn income through google adsense and affiliate marketing and i am planning to keep the website free for the visitors.Are there any other better ways to earn income if i want to make my website free for usage???
Q4. Also, After reading alot, I am kind of confused now-- how to go about building ur website-- I am kind of fine with content but then what should be my immediate next step/steps??
Q5. How would I decide if I should include blogs, discussion forums, articles feeds and any other additions in my website?
Q6. Can you think of any other creative features i could add to my consulting sort of website to make different then any other career guidance website??
Sorry to bombard you all with so many questions but I tried my best to get the answers but its just that there is too much and diverse info out there --which just doesnt take u anywhere. I am glad we have startupnation:)))
Thanks alot and hope to get as many advices as possible.
