Hi Everyone !
My first domain development was in early 2008, i decided to make a mini-site on a celebrity from the sport sector.
The domain registered under my Go Daddy account, so i was checking some options to create the mini-site with Go Daddy.
I discovered a Go Daddy service called “website tonight”, so i decided to develop the site using this service.
I did a lot of mistakes and this is exactly what i want to share with you.
Mistake #1 – I paid $300 for a costume design work by Go Daddy. (too much money for logo+design)
Mistake #2 – I took all the content from Wikipedia. (copyright rules, this is not unique content)
Mistake #3 – I also bought Go Daddy services Traffic-Blazer + Traffic Facts. (you can get it for free)
Mistake #4 – I used a celebrity domain name for the site. (cybersquatting issue)
Mistake #5 – I open AdWords account and spend over $400 on advertising. (Not required for a new site).
Mistake #6 – When someone interested in advertising on my site i told him, i do not want to publish any banners on the site. (i didn’t know how much to ask for or how to locate the banner on my site)
Mistake #7 – I was paying $80 a month for the custom Go Daddy design until i close the site 7 months after launch. (This is a lot of money for a service like that)
This is my mistakes from my first development.
