One strategy - copy a successful site

Everyone knows about the success of YouTube.com. When I look at it today, it has an Alexa rank of 5.

It was possible to detect YouTube's rate of ascent fairly early in its rise. So what should an aspiring entrepreneur try to do? Copy it.

Thus we have LiveVideo.com, which has been making a very credible run in Alexa and is today ranked at 1,450. It will be interesting to see where LiveVideo is in 3 to 6 months.

The message is simple - if you see a site you like, and if you can think of ways to improve on it, you might try copying it. It does not always work, but it might be worth a try.

Is copying a successful site a really good idea - because you really copied and not come up with something new??

The important thing is to at least try...

Hi,

I just came across your website after seeing it featured in a video at BloggerWizard.com.

You've got some really interesting articles on your website. I thought the LineRider.com video on your site was pretty entertaining.

Best Regards,

Scott Thomas
