Check out the latest, because changes occur from
time to time.
A Business Model Must Scale
• In order to get financing from anyone other
than friends and family, your startup must be
able to scale.
– Scale means a company must add revenue faster
than it adds costs.
• Writing a novel scales– you don’t have to write a new
copy for everyone who buys the book.
• Software scales – write it once and sell it to lots of
people.
No Scale
• Services don’t scale.
– Services that charge by the hour, such as
production companies, advertising agencies,
consulting, law firms, gardeners, etc. don’t scale.
• No scale, no $ from investors.
Setting Up a Website
• Get a domain name
– Buy it (register it) and close mutations (.net,
.tv, .us, etc.) on GoDaddy.com or
namesecure.com or negotiate with squatter
(afternic.com)
• Serving the domain name and site
– Web hosting company – where you registered
it or third party such as GoDaddy.com or
HostGator.com.
• Microsoft or Linux server software (some hosting
services give you a choice – Linux is less expensive.
• MySql and Fetch or other interfaces as needed (need
some way to FTP files to and edit site)
• E-mail addresses
• Transfer domain name to server
Design a Site
• Online platform
– Proprietary platform
– Server company design software, i.e.
SquareSpace
• Original design

– Commerce – secure payment, Verisign, PayPal,
or outsource it.
Setting Up a Website
• Marketing (the key to success)
– Social Media -- Create buzz (Twitter, Facebook,
Instagram, Pinterest, SnapChat, LinkedIn)
– Publicity (PR firm)
– Advertising (reciprocal deals, Google Search,
programmatic)
– Viral marketing (not as effective as
advertising)
