Not this topic A G A I N! Please ?!
Sorry, since you know me, you gotta hear my thoughts on it.
If you're not interested you can scroll down for more interesting stuff.
Anyhow - I got an interesting phone call from a friend today. And our discussion got me to thinking about 'choosing' a website idea.
Here's the straight up scoop, as far as I can tell ...
At first, when you're just starting out researching a topic, and it could go either way ...
Yes (do it) or No (don't do it)!
If you are really passionate about the topic - I say just DO IT!
However, if you want to actually see if it will work, here's what I do ...
1. I send visitors to my site.
2. I ask them to give me their biggest question about 'that' topic.
3. If about 10% of people DO give me a question - I go for it.
If 10% don't, I don't, unless someone asks me to help them do it anyhow.
In my experience - if this type of person is willing to give you a question, they are more likely to purchase a product as well. Of course there's more to it than just that, but this is where I begin every site I plan on researching for long term potential.
Alright, just a quick thought.
