Hello Everyone! I am planning to start a web-business in some time. It has been a year since I first started to plan my web-page and soon design process will start. Basically the webpage will be like Ebay but specially designed for my country with some major differences. This is my first project, I am pretty good with planning and basically I have the idea and the capital to make it happen. My question is that, when the webpage is ready to run, what should be my marketing strategy. I already have planned to make some phone calls, get involved in social media and so on. The thing I am wondering is, who would start using a webpage when its empty. I mean consider a webpage like Ebay, I will do my best to fill the webpage with customers but I am not pretty sure on how people will start using it. I believe that even to catch one customer to use the webpage, there should be some activity going on. I have some potential customers, who I think will use my webpage because it would simply suit their needs. But even at that point, how do you make someone use your webpage without it being used by other people? Will calling people, sending e-mails doing this and that trying to catch customers with some specific futures and some good advertisements work for a new created web-business. I'm pretty new in this and wanted to get some opinion or ideas about this issue. Any help is appreciated.
