This business plan is lacking numbers. Cool, I see where you want to create value but where's the value for its supporters? Where's the money?
Frankly, it's shallow; shallow to the point to where there is little information to act off. This would barely serve as an introduction to a proposal much less an entire one.
There's nothing that truly defines your service. What have I gotten from it thus far? Bitcoin + Social Network with extra wording. You've tried to sell me on a ambiguous box with 'social network' written on it. If that was your goal, congrats.
Anyways, I wish you the best. : ) I hope your actions say more than this plan.
Immanuel: I appreciate your feedback.
Although I have been running my own computer repair business since 1998, this is the first time I have ever put together a business plan or even tried to get investors before at all.
I have an associates degree in computer information systems and am working currently working on my bachelors. I have not taken any formal business training, but I do know how to make money.
If this business plan looks like it was put together in 30 mins, your absolutely correct.
I did my IPO on GLBSE yesterday and was surprised to see over 1000 shares sell right away before I listed any kind of business plan what so ever. This prompted me to get one out there today as quick as possible so I can share a little bit about what I want to do. I will however will be refining this as I go along.
Cold hard facts it is lacking, this is a start-up and the total amount of all the shares I put up for sale only equals about $500. I am not applying for a $10 million dollar line of credit from a bank.
The facts are this.
I have a lot of time, money and energy tied up into this great currency called Bitcoin. I really want to see it succeed and I truly feel that through the very profitable and popular media of social networking we can make some money and integrate Bitcoin with the rest of the world.
Giving your cold hard numbers is difficult, again this is a start-up - but I am promoting it like crazy and things are slowly gaining momentum. I encourage you to stay tuned and stay interested, I have a lot of really exciting new features coming to the site and I will be going public with the advertising rates and more specific information on how we can turn this site into money.
Thanks again for your constructive criticism, and if you have any specific advice for me - please feel free to PM or email.
