How do I interest potential vendors to join my website? I am working on a website which is service oriented, sort of like SuN...but a whole different animal. How do I approach potential vendors and sell my website effectively to them? I have no sales experience, nor do I work in sales.
I think I need to claify my question. I will have a business name, but my question was that since its a website, do I have to register it with the state? Or can I just simply start a website and not worry about any legal issues with the state (i.e. IRS)?
I do plan on making money, but I feel that the Ad space on the website may not hold value if I do not have any traffic.
I`d like to start an online business, do I need to have a business name? register my business with the state? Need a business license? Now for some background.
The website I will be starting is more of a service based business model. Initially I do not plan on making any money. My year 1 goal is to market my website and build traffic. Once I have credible "traffic", I plan to sell Ad space...which will be my main revenue source...from the website that is.
As far as the website is concerned, it will be a tool for most consumers. It will allow them to save time, and perhaps money, without too much of an effort. Obviously I do not want to disclose more details at this point.
Any advice will be very much appriciated.
Is there a guide on SuN which gives step by step instructions on setting up a home based business? I`m interested in FINALLY acting on my business goals, but I seem to be hitting a dead end. I"m not sure how to get started. I have the business model, name, goals, business plan...but how do I get it all started? Any help would be appriciated!
