This Big City

And we are live! | March 28, 2010

It’s happened. We’re live.

The beta version of our website is complete. The code understood. The pages up and running, and the future of Hold the Front Pages is looking bright!

Ok, well, I don’t know about the future, but the present is good. I’m realy happy with how the website looks. I’m not happy with the technical side of things, as the site requires more updating than we anticipated, but visually it’s great and that’s what most users will care about. I think what has been made clear over the last few weeks is that we need to take on a technical partner for the long run, we need to abandon the Issuu platform, and we need to do everything in our power to make the site automatically update. if we can do all these things then I’ll be happy. It’s going to be hard work.

We also need to focus on promotion. We’ve been luck enough to land some free advertising in the toilets of Kingston Hill campus, though I don’t expect that to achieve massive spikes in visitors to the service. But beggars can’t be choosers. We’ve also got some promotional activities planned in central london. but essentially, we need another partner, and maybe some money for promo. Mikaela met with potential investors who are interested in the service, but want to see us implement monetising elements first, so we really need to get a technical person on board to help us add these features.

So happy to finally be up and running, and let’s see what the future holds!
