Currently, I am listening to Dharmesh's interview on Mixergy.com. I really like making websites, made tones of them, but to get them off the ground, is what kills me. Right now, I have a small Youtube channel which gets a lot of spikes because of getting embeds. All I do is upload whats hot, specifically in Games' market. I want to widen the scope - translated, niche - later on to technology, but I started with the Youtube page for now.
I actually just recently got my first sponsor and am working on a big event which would get their product, www.gamergrub.com, some exposure. So, I am thinking of starting a blog. I've spoken to some entrepreneurs (Neil Patel). Neil told me to just blog for a couple of months and then follow an SEOBOOK at www.seobook.com.
I know that technology, specifically games' niche now a days is very very saturated. I am thinking of using the unsaturated, mini-market as I like to call it. I am wanting to start a blog which is run by its community (User generated). Each user will write a review of a product, firstly games, and get payed for it.
I know this idea is not very different, and even sounds as if it was a scam. When we Google that term, "Get paid to review games", we get around 95 million websites/articles that mostly fake.
I am confused right now. Should I start blogging and do SEO there after and then worry about getting funded for this (the money required to pay the writer only, other costs will be covered by me) or should I start finding investors right away? If so, how should I approach an investor. Do age matter in the eyes of an investor? what about the way you talk (English isn't my first language, I am Gujarati - A language spoken in western part of India).
Help much appreciated, I will go back to listening the interview.
Thanks! Bhargav Patel.
