    The success of Rocky Hill 411 as an online interactive project will depend heavily on the community involvement to create the bulk of the traffic.

    When I chose to cover my niche, where I live and how to really get people to understand it, I did a lot of casual research on what resources were available to see if I was just duplicating something that is already out there. If there was in fact resources that doubled my idea, they definitely weren't prominent in the community.

Focusing significantly on search engine optimization and marketing will be a strong factor in the discovery online, but building awareness offline will also prove to be vital.

    When I moved to a small town in New Jersey after I graduated college and began working in Manhattan, I knew absolutely nothing. I had no idea where to shop for groceries, what restaurants were around, never mind if they were good or bad and if there hadn’t been a bank across from my apartment complex I wouldn’t even know where to go to the bank.
