How To Launch a Wildly Successful Web 2.0 Company and Get Rich

Share this post

Just reading some of the awesome success stories of Web 2.0 companies and seeing them cash out and become instant millionaires … I thought I’d throw up my “how to get rich” list …

I must say … I’m not rich, have never cashed out … and probably never will in this way … and don’t one who has … so these are just my “observations” of how to do it!

Here it is …

  • Create a valuable service or product to an underserved audience — Think convenience … i.e., make someone’s life easier, like giving them a better way to bookmark favorite sites, or share Internet videos, or their photos, or maintain their personal websites
  • Offer it for free … — Consider free stuff as the cheapest advertising and marketing you can do
  • Hire a three geniuses — marketing, design, tech … and let them work their magic
  • Make it extremely easy to know what it is, how to sign up, and how to tell others about
  • Be ready for the tidal wave … meaning, invest in technology, bandwidth, servers, whatever, so you’re never down and thus irritate users and thus lose momentum
  • Take venture capital money, when you can’t handle the tidal wave — At some point you’ll max out your credit card
  • Sell to Google or Yahoo! — That’s your prom date … put on your prettiest dress for them
  • Be rich, invest in other Web 2.0 geniuses, but let them do all the hard work this time

If you get rich, let me know … or better yet, send me a “thank you!”
