Default My Business Idea


I just joined the forum and wanted to get some input on an idea I've been cooking for the past week.
My idea is to help businesses use social media as a marketing tool, such as twitter, facebook, linkedin, etc. This company would create and manage these pages for the companies. I know the idea probably sounds vague and I have some work to do. I hope to have something up and running by the end of the year. I want to reach out to the central Orange county area (Irvine to Laguna Niguel) and grow from there. Any thoughts are welcome, though positive ones are appreciated.

Here's a little background on me.
I am currently a college student pursuing my degree in Business (I'm not sure which concentration within business though, Entrepreneurship?). I have worked for a couple of small businesses, one of which I started at the ground floor, so I'm not new to the concept of starting from scratch.

Thanks for any feedback.

First, Welcome.

Have you made your research ?
Do you have a site up and running ?

If you're going to start you might want to volunteer to create 2-3 pages so you can put them in your portfolio.

Good idea; however there are number of people and companies that are already offering this service. Doesn't mean you cannot succeed. You will just have to work hard and offer something unique and of value.

The good thing of having competitors is that it shows there is a market for a service.
also you could learn from their mistakes.
