Launching the Job Board - New Years Resolution - Dev Log 26


I have completed the MVP for the job board I have been working on for the last three months. Everything is live, and I am both excited and terrified. Excited that I have created and published my largest project ever. Terrified because I am sure things will go wrong. But also, c'est la vie!

I have never had to market a website before in my life. So now is as good of a time as any to learn how. If anyone has any tips I would appreciate that. I guess I am gonna send emails to companies asking them if they would be inclined to use my site. I did not know how much to charge for a listing so after looking around, I figure that 75 dollars is a reasonable price for a 60-day listing.

The truth is that I am pretty worried I will not be able to get this website off the ground. I know that for most developers, making this site would not have taken more than a month, but for me, this was a huge undertaking. I feel that if I approach the marketing with the same zest that I took to the development, then hopefully I can actually turn this into a profitable venture.

My goal of making enough money from my own websites to live on is slightly more tangible now. I know that the grind must continue and I should start on my next project which will probably be a SaaS company, but I think for right now, I am gonna chill on the coding for a minute. I went ahead and made a YouTube video showcasing my site, . Feel free to check it out.

I am one step closer to my goal, because of that I am proud, but I still have a long way to go.
