SportsFanBase.com

My name is Ari Bluestein and I am a graduate and MBA student of Rider University in Lawrenceville, NJ. As an undergrad, one of my two majors was Entrepreneurial Studies where I not only learned about starting your own business, but I was inspired to start my own business. So on November 14, 2005, I launched SportsFanBase.com, an interactive sports website that acts as an online community for sports fans across the country and around the world.

Now, as an MBA student, I am participating in the Student Venture Experience where I am receiving mentoring from the professors in the Entrepreneurial Studies along with a small business loan from Rider University.

With my website a little over a year old, I am now ready to take the next step and really make a push towards promoting the website. Currently, SportsFanBase.com receives about 20,000-25,000 hits per week and I want to increase that and become a highly trafficked sports website.

The SVE program is definitely going to help out my business and I look forward to participating in the program this Spring semester!

Well, it's been my first 2 weeks participating in the SVE and a lot of developments have occurred. January 2007 turned out to be the best month for SportsFanBase.com in terms of traffic, with over 110,000 hits and 1,100 unique visitors. Also, we got one new advertisers and are currently working on getting 2 more advertisers. In addition, I currently have a deal in the works that could potentially be a partnership with a licensed wholesaler of Nike apparel.

I will put up another post as some of these awesome deals occur!
