INTERVIEW WITH BHONG CAPINA
This is my interview with Bhong Capiña, a Web master who attracts 260,000 visitors a month to his Web site.
1. Can you share with us just a little about yourself (education, profession, hobbies)?
I'm Bhong Capiña, 27 years old, BSBA graduate and basketball fanatic.
2. When did you put up www.bhong.com and what was your goal for the site?
The site was lauched on May 2000. It's primary goal is
to showcase some of my works online. And hopefully get some web development/design project leads
thru my website.
It took me 5 solid hours to conceptualize and build
the site. I only need 30 minutes or more to update the site.
The last time I've check my web stats (March 2001), my
site is getting around 260,000 unique visitors a month. I'm forced to disable the web
stats/counter because it eats up precious web space.
I did register my website on major search engines like
google, yahoo, altavista and others.
I think the best way to drive traffic is by winning
awards and being featured in other respectable websites.
I average 20 inquiries a month and only 3% of them
$10 for web hosting and $70 domain name (2 years)
Quality design work plus user friendly interface.
11. What advice would you give to entrepreneurs who are exploring the possibilities of the Internet for their business?
Doing business thru the net is very profitable but it
needs a lot of careful planning before you can put up a good site/business. Do some research and be on a
look out for sites that have the same function on what your planning to put up.
