who said i havent learnt from the mistakes of othersIf you are lucky, in this business, you learn from the mistakes of others.
Everyone thinks the same thing.
That's the flaw in your plan. Ideas are the easy part but your time is limited. As the directory grows, you will find yourself spending more and more time on it. The human element is that thing that causes most directories to fail - they grow to such a size that editorial control is lost.
i thought it was obvious that a lot of irish directories had stagnated or died completely
i can see plainly what not to do by just looking at some of them
i am also aware of directories, what they can grow to and what time is needed to build them
it started as an irish directoryWell the whole emphasis of the thread and your selling point is that it is an Irish web directory. That would automatically put it in the directory market.
it now features other sections and will have more on completion
i can compete in the directory market but am not limited to only offering a directory.
the web directory is the part i started this thread about..offering inclusion before relaunch
okay you don't need to worry ill deal with thatTrue. I just don't know if your unique selling point is unique enough.
never have i heard so many negative and patronising comments
my directory is not threatening to anyone here
and how can someone comment on it with such great authority when they dont even know the url?
i dont know what this is but this is definately not the irish webmaster forum i was looking for
