I'll try to answer.
What are some good methods of free advertising?
free advertising, I guess it relates to what you are trying to advertise, webrings is a big one, just by adding a couple webrings you can get a good amount of traffic and it actually still works, putting your website in your signatures on various forums, doing a trade of services for advertising, there are alot of adword and ypn coupons floating around that costs little money to use its not free but its cheap. also if you have other websites just cross promote them or if you have an email database at all send out some emails.
What is the most important thing one needs to consider in becoming a successfull webmaster?
How hard do you think it is, with competition included, to start up your own web design company?
assuming you have the skills
the only hard part is customers, you could be the best designer in the world but if you have no customers you can't do anything.
Start with a portfolio if work and sites you have done, if you don't have any offer your services for a deep discount to get your protfolio up. go to alot of the webmaster boards and advertise your services to get your folio up. if you see someone who is up and coming do their site and add your card to the bottom, also another big way is start making myspace designs, like full designs for epople and link to your portfolio, alot of people even tho they might not be big time might want you to do their myspace and you will get customers, I highly suggest this route as many people visit profiles a day, say you do a small time up and comming rapper in atl, he's small but alot of other guys who want to be him or are smaller see what you have done and want the same. your calling card is on the bottom of his profile.
i have all the skills in the world to build virtually any website, but lack any ideas. Whats my best route to cash in?
What resources would you suggest I look into regarding this idea of mine....In simple terms it would be kinda like hotornot, instead of submitting photos users would submit snippets of text which could then be voted upon and rated and such.
I believe this can be done with a database and php, but I really don't know where to start. Can you suggest any books or websites which can get me pointed in the right direction?
How do I make 10k by next week?
using www.haneng.com, you could easily have this up tonight.
Start here: http://www.haneng.com/lessons_1.asp
Things you'll need: Windows/ASP web host, Access database
Fortunately, that site helps you out with everything.
look at what others are doing if you think it can be done better do it.
simple to make, it would be like a poem rating site. Script would be easy to have someone make for like 75 bucks with a backend. if you want to do it your self get a php and mysql book, all you are doing is having a database for users and poems that are linked to the user with a point system. If you sa down and read you could knock it out in a weekend.
I could tell you but you'd need 5k to start and it would take you a week. but i don't have time to mentor or show people.
That I figured.....Finding a free weekend is tough though.
Thank you come again.
That is certainly not what I am thinking of.
Users submit snippets of text (or images if they'd like) they can be voted up or voted down.
Very similar to the idea you posted IMO.
When do you think I'll stop shitting?
I guess it is...I was more focused on the lists ideas of the site.
when you stop eating and just drink fluids?
Started doing that today. Still shitting.
Partner up with me.
I have ideas, but limited skills
How would I go about building a software application? (I have no programming skills or knowledge)
start reading a book on the language you want to learn and then get the software to write the software.
will you guide me step by step to becoming rich? if it works, i'll give you a lot of money
