Need a kick-start? Okay. Facebook founder and his success advice for you.
Let’s begin with a hugely popular social networking website – Facebook. When it comes to learning from real-life online business, Facebook founder – Mark Zuckerberg – is one of the most inspirational and actionable entrepreneurs worth to analyze, and probably follow. Mark Zuckerberg is a communicative personality, open to the audience and never lacking of a business advice every startup may benefit from.
Mark Zuckerberg is a computer programmer who became one of the richest online entrepreneurs at young age. Today, almost everyone uses Facebook, which story of creation goes into early 2004.
It all started with a website developed by Mark while being Harvard student, in 2003. The website was called Facemash, where Harvard students could rank other students by photos. A year later after Facemash, Zuckerberg began writing the code for a new website, “Thefacebook”, which rapid growth lead to first investment that it got from an American entrepreneur Peter Thiel. In 2005, the domain name facebook.com was bought. Since 2006, users who are at least 13 years old could register a personal profile on the website. So, about three years it took for Mark to grow up his website to popularity.
There are many myths and talks about Facebook establishment and its founder pursuit to success. Some say Zuckerberg has probably done some “bad” things, as it has been shown in The Social Network movie. Like, hacking Harvard’s Network for the sake of his goal, and “stealing” the idea to build a social network site from three Harvard seniors who even filed a lawsuit against him. On the other side, there are Mark fans giving him credit as an actionable person who knows what he wants. The fact is that Facebook is the number one social network website and its developers put a great work into it.
Web startups have much to learn from Mark’s path. Zuckerberg was always taking action. Everyone looking to start a website destined for success, should take action. Action and execution make 90% of success when it comes to building website or web based business of any kind.
Zuckerberg wasn’t alone on the way of Facebook establishment. He had a team of college roommates and co-creators Eduardo Saverin, web graphic artist Andrew McCollum, programmer Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.
When it all started with Facemash and Thefacebook, Zuckerberg was not aimed at monetizing the site. He was just fascinated with what he did. “With Facebook, I wanted to make something that would make Harvard more open,” Zuckerberg said in an interview. Hard work, tech team and true passion led him to become successful internet business owner he is today.
The key point here is that you should breathe your website 24 hours a day. If you are developing website purely based on making money from it, then you will be expecting the instant success, which is one of the biggest mistakes beginners may make. The misstep of new website owners is putting all efforts on getting instant profit instead of the process of establishing a profitable website. The idea and passion DO matter when getting started online.
One more point is that you may need help in making website and growing it online. Especially, if you are just starting out your online business journey and has no offline business experience. Until you are not a web programmer or do-it-yourself guru, you may ask a competent person or a web development company to make website for you. You see, before serious success has come, Facebook founder had a team of key executives helping him to grow up the website, attract investors and subsequently monetize it.
“The real story of Facebook is just that we’ve worked so hard for all this time. I mean, the real story is actually probably pretty boring, right? I mean, we just sat at our computers for six years and coded,” Mark tells. The real story is boring, but the actual result is breathtaking: US$2.94 billion Facebook net worth and 1.44 billion users!
