Hi Mark

FYI - not a question.

You say you have products required by millions of people worldwide, and have a business with unlimited earning potential? Yet you are looking for ONE person who has these skills plus more:

  • PHP development
  • Wordpress development
  • SQL knowledge
  • Copywriting
  • hosting and linux knowledge
  • marketing experience
  • seo / sem experience
  • social media delivery experience
  • most likely some sort of platform experience, AWS and so on - ability to implement platform based solutions as if your website is as busy as what you say it will be, hosting on one server will not be enough.

You want someone who is able to perform

  • day to day dev operations including coding and bug fixing, updates
  • analytics and traffic analysis
  • SEO / SEM activities and capabilities
  • Social Media management
  • customer management
  • supplier management
  • deal with PR / promoters / influencers
  • marketing strategies and reporting

You're not looking for a successful, talented individual - you're looking for a unicorn.

And assumedly if you're making this unicorn an owner of the business also, usually that means that person will not be paid well - at least to begin with.

And if you find this unicorn, and give them the tasks that you want them to do - they'll be working 100+ hour weeks to get all of this done and in place.

If you're banking on one person doing all of this for you. I fear that your business will not succeed.

Separate your tasks - get a marketing person on board to do marketing / social. Get an SEO person involved - at least after a while when your content is stable enough the SEO can handle itself so you can then drop them. Get a developer just to develop. Get an intern or retail staff member to handle the customer facing side.

Just some advice - not saying you should take it. Just have a think about it. One person is not your answer here.

hmmm that's great feedback and good food for thought. Thank you.
