2020 Summer Olympics and turning a profit. Can you do it?
Now I know a lot of people will put up a website for a movie that is coming out within a few months or a game that is launching next year in order to gain authority over time and make a few sales when the movie comes out of the game launches.
But have you ever thought about putting up a website for the next Summer Olympics in 2020? This is a big task because it's 4 years of work and you don't know if you're even going to make a single dollar off of it, but would it be worth it.
What kind of advertising would you put on your website? Would you slap up some BSA (buysellads.com) ads or would you try to generate enough traffic to the website that you could get big fish like Nike or McDonalds to show some interest in paying you a hefty amount to advertise on your pages for a month? If you had the traffic, where would you try to find the advertisers to bring in the money?
I think this is a pretty awesome idea but it's a huge task because the amount of content you would need on the site in order to be competitive. I guess you could put some adsense on the website and just talk about summer sports that are in the Olympics and get a few dollars each month off of that. But how much do you think you could pull in?
I may actually try this out, but I don't know if I'd be able to get the amount of content that I'd like. Sure I could ask people to post for me or pay writers to do it, but that would be expensive and whoever is posting for free would probably not stay around for long.
