Was your first website a success?

    So I was wondering if it is possible(and probable) to get successful from your first website/project. I am currently on my first one and it's not a failure but it certainly is not a success.

    What about you?

    It's possible indeed, just not very probable. You learn from your mistakes, it'll take a few tries before you'll get a successful website going. I'm sure making a successful website on your first try is possible, and has been done before.

    My first website I sold for $750, so it had some success. It is definitely possible to have success off your first site, if planned out properly, but you'll make a lot more mistakes when creating your first site, and hopefully learn from them in the process.

    If it's related to something you're passionate about then yes. My first blog was a fantasy baseball blog and I got it to about 5 dollars a day, but realized I just wasn't that into it, it felt like work after awhile. My next site was a mixed martial arts site because I was completely obsessed with it and it became very successful. Your site should be based around something you're obsessed with or else you may get bored.

    I could say that my first website has some good moments and I have totally built it without any problems so I would say it was pretty successful. As for the revenue, I'm still looking forward it. Hopefully this year.

    Heck no, you'd I can't tell you how many times I failed, but each time I failed I tried and tried again, till I got it right... now I have a little success with several of my websites.
  7. I did my first website project with a friend who's a techie. Unfortunately, we had to shut down after a few months. The content did not catch up well with the demand of the market. We realized eventually that we had to invest a lot to develop content and we just couldn't really afford it.

    My first personal website was a forum based on a foreign MMORPG and it was a success in terms of bringing in so much traffic that my old dedicated server couldn't handle it.

    Unfortunately, I never even thought of monetising traffic back then and it eventually died a slow death through neglect (I was busy with real life and work).
