Looking for a partner to start another web-based business. I used to own fairly successful web design business, which about 2 years ago I sold to a New York based consulting company. I was the primary designer/developer.
I need to try my hand again at something along the same lines. However, I am leaning toward creating a web-based product from scratch. I think this will be a little bit more challenging, but eventually more rewarding.
My first suggestion is to create a simple, yet powerfull web-based Search Engine Optimization application (similar to http://www.sitescoreenterprise.com but better) that is unique from any others out there and that actually gets results (help clients get higher search engine ranking and results).
I have been poundering this idea for several weeks now, and thus far I have not found any other product on the web that does exactly what I am proposing. It's just a matter of time.
I don't expect the partner to be an expert in any web based technology. I just need someone that has a good understanding of various web technologies and willing to give 100% effort to make this a viable business.
For me this will be a part-time effort since I do have a job. I work as a web developer for a small company outside of Chicago. I want to plan this project together as a partnership and work on developing this product to get a first release done in a fairly short while. This project will be based on sweat-equity, no one get's paid until we see monies from actual clients.
Let me know what your thoughts are. Also, I am open to any other suggestions/ideas that you may have.
