Well, I accepted the challenge and posted up a validation idea. Check it out here, http://totalcostofcar.weebly.com/ for the launching site.
So I posted up my validation response and ticked the box to receive any follow up messages. This was getting good until some crazy spammers started to post comments, eh spams, up. It was getting annoying.
As for my idea, I am going to run this as a slow ramp up. Firstly, I don't have the time to launch into full time, and secondly, I have many things to learn, and thirdly, it started to look like a small idea the start, but it is actually quite a complex application.
I am using weebly.com to create the launch page, however I came across launchrock.com which could have been a better choice as it has better mailing list integration.
For mailing list management, I stuck with mailchimp.com as I didn't know anything else and I have heard that it was one of the better ones around.
The launch page has been up for about 1 week, and I haven't done and marketing for it. I have four subscribers, so lets see. I need to understand how mailchimp.com works to use it more effectively.
