    Hey,

    I have an idea for a website, but was wandering what kind of promotion/seo/costs goes into a BIG site.By big I mean something like: 99designs.com,freelancer.com,elance.com ...

    My starting budget will be 1000-2000$ ( the design/programming part I'll be doing myself so it's "free" ). Will that be enough to start of something medium-big or...?

    Run some ads with Google or tried paid traffic.

    Those sites started where you are. When you start growing your best bet is to get some funding to further ramp up your advertising efforts.

    It all depends on "How big" you want it to be. Keep everything ready starting from fb page,youtube channel,twitter,newsletters,autoresponders,etc.., fully occupied with perfect business level content. The key thing here is to keep your visitors engaged to create the "buzz". Obviously, handling it all is tough for a One man army.

    This site should give you more detailed info :

    Such sites don't depend on SEO rather than paid advertising and viral traffic then comes the word of the mouth when you become really big. 2k is far from getting you into the same group as the websites you mentioned as I think you need no less than 100k in advertising to build such wide client base.

    On another side if the website is informational then SEO can be involved and you can work with a much less budget.

    you just do some keywords research and buy a domain and hire some article writers to write articles. after some time your site will be authority and day by day your site authority become more and more. but please don't do blackhat seo or hire some black hater seoz because they will waste your time and your money.

    Well it's fairly hard to keyword target for these kinds of sites. You can build links to gain PR though.

    To get a quick brand name, you need to target fb ads and google adwords with some banners in the authority sites. As for as organic seo, basic things are all you need.
