Business Plan Judgement Day

27 Nov

Better late than never, I’ve come out of my turkey-induced coma to briefly update about something that’s actually related to class. The sheer amount of turkey that I’ve consumed in the last 48 hours…oof. Let’s not even go there. Onto the more pressing stuff:

Brief Hiatus

16 Nov

Hey folks. I apologize for the lack of new posts this week so far. Unfortunately, this business plan is kicking my ass and for the time being it’s all I’m focusing on. Regular programming (for the time being) will resume on Friday. Please be patient.

Business Plan Update: What You May or May Not Have Wanted to Know

10 Nov

As of tomorrow, the first draft of my business plan, which I will be pitching to a panel of visiting entrepreneurs, is due. Needless to say, I’m pretty anxious. Find out more after the jump:

Midterm Thoughts

19 Oct

The semester is almost halfway over. Personally, I’m shocked by how fast it’s gone by so far. With the first draft of my formal business plan due about a month from now, I’m focusing in on figuring out the rest of my site idea. The major issue is still monetizing it, given that I haven’t figured out a fool proof method as of now. More rambling on the subject after the jump:

Taking A Look At Business Plans

16 Oct

Today’s class provided us poor students with our first glimpse at a formal business plan. While I knew that making one would be time consuming, I didn’t think it would be that awful. Apparently, I was wrong.

Making Money

2 Oct

Our proposals were due yesterday, and now I’m beginning to develop my initial idea. Hooray!? We’ll see how things progress. One of the things that we talked about in class yesterday is somewhat of a no brainer (but nevertheless important): monetizing your business. Yes, you might have a good idea, but can you actually rake in profit from it? There are, of course, many ways that one can go about doing this, but most of them aren’t really all that reliable. Ads? Why sure, but who is going to click on them? Contests/Deals? Kay, but where is that money going to come from? Partnerships? Alright, but that costs money too. It’s all very stressful to think about. To really make a profitable business, clearly I have to think at a higher level than that, something I’ll be doing in the coming weeks with the help of my classmates and professor. Results to be posted here, for sure!

Otherwise, there’s not much for me to report at the moment, but I’ll include the links to the blogs my fellow classmates are running after the jump, so you can check them out if you want (and we can drive traffic to and from each other’s sites).

Proposal Finalized — Business Plan It Is

29 Sep

First off, I apologize for the lateness of this post. Calling this week ‘hell week’ would be an appropriate and then some. On a more positive note, I’ve finally made up my mind as to what to do with this site and my class this semester. The results, after the jump (as if the title doesn’t give it away)…
