I am in the processes of completing my website and have a question.
I offer a service to people that is kind of like a resume profile service. A person can pay a monthly, quarterly, or yearly fee to post a resume of their work on my site.
I was wondering if people could tell me what the smartest method would be to get it going and to look like it is popular. I was thinking of offering about 20 people a free subscription to my service just to get some resumes. Then it will look like it is moderatley popular to new visitors. Do you all think this is smart, or should I not sacrifice the revenue to free subscribers.
My fear is that if I do not have some people already registered, no one will have confidence in my site to initially pay the fee to get listed.
Any words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated.
