How quick can you get your site ready for launch?

Recommended Posts

For me, the actual process of acquiring my domain, hosting and installing all the software I may want is a relatively simple and quick process to get under my belt. However, when I tend to launch a site I like to go in with a stack of content ready to hit the ground running and hopefully entice people into my site. Last time I launched something like this I had about three weeks of content prepped and ready to go. Alongside all the research, time to write and make sure everything was good and ready, that probably took me a month or two.

 

What about you? How quickly can you get set up?

When I first open up my first site using SMF it taken around three to four days after the software was installed, and in that time it allow me to get plugins, themes, and also learn how the forum works. An week before I already had hosting and domain in place. 

 

Then when I moved to IPB software (clean install again) I allowed myself 7 days before the opening. Maybe it was longer then 7 days. Over the weeks, mouths and year the site grow over time. Meaning you get more plugins and ideas in place, content grow as so does member base and a good year or two the site gets to the point that it's right where it needs to be.

It doesn't take me too long to set up things in terms of the domain, hosting, software etc. It takes a little longer to get everything else set up. I usually don't fully launch a forum until I get some content on the forum as well so that can take a bit of time to get some new members or paid posters to create content.

Some sites fully open and then get there content going then rest of the others rather open the site with content. So what rather would you have? 

I would rather have the site have some sort of content before fully opening because it's important to try and get some users when you first advertise your site. If your site has no content when visitors come on it, they are just going to get bored and leave the site.
