I am wondering what my next step should be in implementing my idea.
Should I design a smaller step of the website (I mean script and the actual design)? I can't use SEO to get traffic. I was thinking of advertising/sponsoring with people who already have a larger following and fit my target audience (GEN Y, Z or people who are up to date with technology).
Should I approach Youtube partners and give them money or sponsor them? Tell me how you would approach this (getting numbers wise).
My main idea to encourage signups and referrals is to have a referral contest and give my users a taste of what's to come. People who refer a lot of other friends will win items like iPads, Gift cards, Video games, etc. Do you think this is a good idea? I am trying to show potential investors the value of my business.
My idea is giving people what they want when they want. It's a recession. Not a lot of teens can get a job and pay for things they want. These things could be games, clothes, electronics, anything. On my site they can do what they normally do, earn points for it, and win those items. One example of "doing what they normally do" would be watching videos.
I know that this might look like a scam but that's why I want to do this referral contest - to show people, before they invest a lot of their time, we are not scammers.
