    Hello,

    We have just started a sports website. Our site is very unique in the way we do things. What we do is take content from popular sports site and use it with ours. We are not trying to compete with anyone.

    Just give the fans the info they want. We only cover NFL and NBA the two most popular sports.

    We also give the small guy a chance meaning if you have a sports site a you do good work we will place you site right next to the big guys.

    These are the problems we are having.

    1. Getting people to come to the site.
    2. Web marketing.
    3. Just making the site more popular in general

    What are some things we can do to get this site off the ground?

    Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

    Welcome to Business Advice Forum ISS. Is the content on your site original, or is it coped and pasted from other sports sites?

    Question: What makes people willing to visit your site instead of visit NFL and NBA site directly, if just a generate info people can get it at wikipedia?

    Question: what is the benefit for small guy to place their site?

    Things to do:
    1. Offer something is not cover by NFL and NBA.
    2. Understand user need, when readers visit your site, they must get some value info.

    The content is both original and pasted and or linked. The purpose of our site is to connect fans with the info they are looking for.

    If you are a sports fan you will find MORE than you need on our site but we just need to get the word out more.

    ISS would you mind sharing the website address of your site with us? If you can do that, our members will be able to give you more specific suggestions on how to promote it.
