When I lost my son 3yrs ago, I immediately realized we need to do better. My idea grew every day, after a year I thought.....why not create on online resource center. This was my first draft in PowerPoint 2 yrs ago.
I took it to a Web-designer friend and he said "WOW, this should totally exist already, and it doesn't, because I looked"! Yes, this is possible to make, but it will take 5 web-designers and at least 60K. I spent the next year trying a few fundraisers to hire the professionals I needed. I created a small website myself, but with it lacking the ability for individuals to post suggestions themselves that would stay static on the page, and no way for people to rate the information, it became only a demo.
THEN I FOUND IT!!!! A classifieds website format with LIKE buttons :)
Software that would create a user input and user ratings that would also run adds at the top, so the website would be funded by business's!!! I purchased the software and completely designed Wisdom Is Strength.com myself. I continue to find cost effective ways to make this online resource center a reality.
The biggest risk is finding the correct places to spend advertising money. The advertising has to draw consumers (Users) to start adding their own suggestions to the website. This will show business's that it is worth their money to advertise on the site. This insures the websites ability to remain running with revenue coming in.
