    Hello,

    I would like to start a file sharing service in my country, targeted,
    the file sharing will be in my native language and will be only for my country, that way it is targeted,

    i know exactly what script is needed/design, servers, and promotion (local) for the service to work,

    i do not have a business plan written, i prefer to talk with a serious investor and explain to him everything,

    more info will be given on chat, so if you see this interest you, PM me with your messenger address so we can talk,

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Just to make things clear,

    the investor will hold the domain, he will hold the license for the script, the servers, he will pay for the promotion directly, and he will also get the revenue directly,

    the investor will control everything, this is not some scam.

    Thank you

    If you're looking for a "serious" investor, you need a business plan. I'm not just going to drop 14k after a "chat" and nor would others.

    Why the fuck you would need $14k for starting filesharing site?
    I can make one up and buy high-traffic sever for first month for less then $500!

    Sugirl i am not going to get into details here, i think i will write a business plan and show it to investors, you are just "dropping things in the air",

    First, 1 server is not enough at all, and you seems not to have a clue about what is needed for success,
    me and my friend set here for days to come up with that number, to make a successful file sharing site and not just to let it be for 1 month, there are many things involved, the script and customization alone cost about 500$, not mention the server(s) that ARE needed, and the Promotion, and other things, you are just dropping things in the air, if it was 500$ to start a file sharing site- go ahead and do it, your boat will sink after 20 days, and your server will be fried.

    anyway i will make the business plan and show it only to Serious people, and not to people like you who dont have a clue about the online biz.

    Right... year ago I started a site similar to that concept and got ~600k registered users within first month -how much did it cost me to run it?
    ~around $200/month for server, and about $200 to get it made by someone else!

    THERE ISN'T NEEDED A LOT OF MONEY TO BE Succesfull damn retard who wants to drop $14k on a site!
    Remember It won't grow that fast as you imagine in start so you don't need to spend a lot, by the time it gets more traffic you will already see if it's profitable to run and pay for the expenses from your site's income instead!


    What are you trying to Tell is utter bull$hit!

    Sugirl,
    even if you had a 5 tera space server, with my plan, it is going to be filled in couple of days, as i wrote it will be local, and the major issue that i didnt wrote but you are forcing me to write more and more, is that it will be only for Movies, consider it as a niche file sharing site :)
    14k is not a lot of money, and my friend said he will give me that before the beginning of the school holiday since we want to pay to affiliates and as you know kids can do a lot of good promotion for us, and get paid a commision by doing so, i am expecting a Blast with this 14k and not to wait, because time is money, i want to do it now and not wait until the school vacations, that is why i am looking for an investor,
    and its not "waste",14k, with my business plan we will start earn from day 1, knowledge is power,

    did you saw what is happening to sites like filesonic? hotfile? fileserve and others? they have THOUSANDS of affiliate uploading for them files all day and night and making posts on forums, promoting them for commission, do you think they started with 200$ server, the answer is- No. its a joke to start with 200$, just the design will cost about that.
    i am done with this conversation with Sugirl, i don't believe she had 600,000 registered users on 1 server. and therfore i will not continue this conversation with her.

    I can make a file sharing service for 200-300 buck.
    I will 100% garantee you will not find anybody with common sense who will "invest" 14$k
    And you dont have a business plan. Im thinkin your some nigerian scammer.lol

    You guys should cut this guy some slack, if he wants a serious competiting file sharing site it costs more than that.

    I was looking into starting one a few years ago. Owning the server, constantly adding TB's of HD's,+ a rack at a data center, multiple GBIT connections with TB's of high-quality bandwidth (and a ridiculous "over the limit" charge per TB) ended up looking like it would cost about $50K to start then at least another $20,000 a month to at least start up and attempt to compete with the big boys. Maybe his site isn't trying to go straight to the top, but still.

    Ultimately I decided to back out of the project because it is so hard to make money with file sharing. If the users are mainly downloading pirated stuff why would they want to pay for an account? The people running rapidshare had something like over a million people paying monthly and if you look at their ROI it really wasn't impressive at all. File sharing sites are worse than restaurants as far as becoming successful..

    sorry for the long post..
