Top 10 Home Businesses You Can Start Online Cheap: Community Events Website

Updated on June 30, 2009


This enterprise takes advantage of many of the major strengths of the Internet: vividly interactive information; constant updatability, and ease of accessibility. The various events that occur in your community are regularly posted in the newspaper or sometimes are broadcast on radio or television. In general, locating these events can be fairly difficult, especially for individuals with full time employment. The primary purpose of a community event website is to supply your website visitors with a comprehensive list of community events. By utilizing your website to dynamically present these listings, you will gain a considerable advantage over the non-interactive media such as newspapers and television. If you apply the correct online marketing plans, you will be rewarded with considerable local traffic to your website and your income stream will be generated primarily through online advertising.


You should possess at least basic personal computer skills. You should be able to master HTML programming although through WYSIWYG programs such as Adobe Dreamweaver and Microsoft FrontPage, that task is much easier now than at an earlier time when hand coding was the norm. You should also be able to design your own tasteful graphics, but you may want to outsource to a subcontractor the task of developing a user-friendly database, as that process requires fairly advanced technical skills. Online marketing expertise is also necessary, as the more visitors you are able to attract to your website, the greater your revenue will be.


This is a relatively inexpensive and simple enterprise to launch online. You can expect expenditures to range between $3,000 and $5,000 if you do not currently have a suitable PC, but as little as $1,000 if you already do.You will need a modern personal computer with appropriate software graphics and HTML editor software, website development, and hosting. Additional expenditures associated with launching this enterprise include online advertising expenditures and any offline promotion that you may require to launch.


The number of personnel you will require strictly depends on the individual expertise of your staff. This business requires a graphic designer, a web developer, and a webmaster who can keep the information on the site strictly up to date. However, a highly skilled and energetic individual could fulfill all three roles.


Due to the fact that you are providing an community information service dealing with events, it is imperative that your website be constantly updated and always strictly current. This should be fairly simple, however, since your essential service is effectively free ads for those entities interested in publicity for their event in your community. If you elect to offer online ordering of event entry tickets, then you will need make arrangements for a readily accessible location for your clients to pick the tickets up or set up some form of service which can deliver the tickets directly. It is not wise to rely on the postal mails, and city couriers can be prohibitively expensive.


One of the primary ways to ensure that your service expands is to develop a mechanism for the online ordering of event tickets through your website. You can develop a program whereby the ticket providers pay you a commission or fixed fee in order to sell their tickets through your website. The main obstacle to this strategy is that unless you are well established in your community and have a considerable volume of website traffic, this is not likely to be a successful approach. You may want to attempt providing the Calendar of Events listings at no charge but bill the clients if they are interested in having a hypertext link back to their own website or additional space or graphics.

      Imagine yourself, stdaning in front of a mirror, thinking that you are fat, so you take a brown, long toothbrush and start jamming the elongated toothbrush down your throat, twisting and turning, waiting for the special moment, then suddenly you feel the pressure of your stomach about to devour itself, you start vomiting with a nasty bitter sweet acid taste of what you had for lunch, in order to have a perfect body.According to Annie Bradford Rispin in the article, Here's Looking at You: Is Body Image Taken Too seriously? Rispin believes that perception of beauty can dramatically affect how human beings deal with food, hence, most people are turning to diets, compulsive exercise, and even eating disorders to lose weight and achieve the new ideal [image] (57). Bulimia, anorexia, binge eating: these are some factors/risks which contribute to eating disorders. This perfect image ideology triggers from low self- esteem which forces that person to question himself whether he is fat, skinny, or ugly. As a result, that particular unique person might starve himself in order to eliminate that small part of fat to become a significantly (in his view) perfect person. To this extent, I am truly concerned about this eating obsession which can be influenced by television and the powerful compulsion to exercise.Over the years, I have seen many bright young beautiful teenagers especially girls during their puberty, change their eating habits and turn to binge eating because of the perception of flawless beauty on television. Every girl dreams of being perfect, but, in reality, if every body is flawless, then every single human being would be alike. If everybody achieves perfection, eventually, she would seek something more because that perfection would be recognized as normal, therefore, this era of perfectionism would never end. On an episode of Dr.Phill, a television program that (displict?) problems and tires to solve their needs in order to help them live day-to-day, he explains that girls(from 7-14) would often vomit to appear more beautiful or to decrease their size and shape. Eventually, later on the show, they talked about a mother who was binge eating ever single day; consequently, now she has to combat her severe kidney and her adrenal gland problems each day by taking laxative pills. Sadly she struggled to answer Dr.Phill question , the reason why i started to binge eat was the perception of beauty on TV like Tyrese [Top Model} that make little girls feel ugly. Then suddenly, I realized how many teenager girls I knew who believe they are not in shape. Although they are perfectly beautiful in many ways, they ignore every-body's opinions and naively believe in what they watch on television. The perception of television has greatly impaired the vision of what is normal;therefore, people binge eat and become unhealthy
