Start a Movie Website

Starting a Movie Website: Introduction

Starting a movie website, creating a film website from scratch is in no way an easy task. That is why ProMovieBlogger is here, to guide you through those perilous waters from inception to implementation. You have the movie website notion, the itch. Now its time to put that itch into action. You probably saw other people doing it and said what the heck, I can do that. You were tired of working for someone else’s movie website and wanted to be your own boss. Starting a movie website can be very simple or very arduous, depending upon the start-up methodology you employ. Starting a website is like starting a business and to do both successfully, you need a well laid out plan and you need to ask yourself these four questions: what am I producing, how am I going to produce it, for how much, and what am I getting out of it?

    A few years ago a friend of mine gave me the nick name "The Movie Whore" and about 3 years ago I was doing some other blogging and found I was writing mostly movie related posts. I checked to see if was available and it was and I started my site. Since then I have also been working on getting a few flm projects off the ground and I have recently invited other would be filmmakers to join as contributors on my site offering tales of their journey to break into film.

      Thx for sharing. A lot of people can be called Movie Whores but you were lucky enough to get to the name first. Are you a film student or a script writer?

      • Film student? No, I think for myself. I actually do a little work as a creative consultant and some producer work.

    Thanks for sharing this information here. My friend also want to create his own film website and I will forward these instructions to him. He will be very glad.

    • Keep Website flash introductions to less than 60 seconds in run-time length to prevent losing potential site viewers. Include HTML text on the Web page containing the flash animation to optimize the site for SEO.

  • My elder brother has asked me to gather some information about how to start a movie website. So, I searched on Google and found this. I will forward this to him.

  • If you are thinking of starting a movie website then the first thing you'll need is a Domain Name and someone to host your site. We can offer you both here at One IT Ltd, we specialise in all forms of hosting including Domain Names and Cloud Hosting.

  • Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites?
    I have a blog centered on the same topics you discuss and would really like to have you share
    some stories/information. I know my readers would appreciate your work.

    If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.
