Hello, I'm in need of a little help or tips into making a small online business idea a reality. I am still a young person and have little knowledge about online businesses, but have good knowledge to implement a proper website that I have in my mind, and am quite confident in that area. Idea: My idea is simple: website where people can easily search for restaurants. This involves reviewing of restaurants, ratings and so on. In my country, there's no proper website for this. My questions are: - How would I know if this would be successful? Should it be just a risk of trying and seeing if it will fail or succeed? - How do I gain trust from restaurant owners to submit their details to my website? Just through emails or phoning? Should I be visiting each one personally? - What are ways of getting money from this? I was thinking around the lines that each restaurant can be viewed on the website for free for X months, then if they want to keep their entry they need to pay.
