Do you own some good domain names but you aren’t sure how to develop them? Maybe they’re either “too generic” or too broad, and you can’t determine what would be best for the website. If this is the case, why not put up a simple one page website for a month or two with a blank form asking visitors what they expect to see and/or what they’d like to see on your site.
If development isn’t your forte, one of the developers listed on my sidebar can help you create a very simple site with a form, allowing visitors to tell you exactly what they think your website should be. Instead of guessing what people want when they visit, why not ask them and give them what they want. You can also add a poll with pre-selected options to make it easier for them in case they don’t want to spend time writing.
Based on what your visitors tell you in your questionnaire/poll, you can build a great website with the desired content, and then you can figure out how to monetize it after. If you give visitors what they want, they will probably return – and they may even have more of a vested interest in your site when you launch.
Additionally, if you already have a website, you might want to add a user feedback form to make sure you are giving them what they want. Ask if they are satisfied with your current site, and make changes as necessary. If a visitor is passionate enough to share his opinion, it’s probably an important change to make.
