Introducing My New Project And Website –

Hey everyone! Just wanted to let you in on my newest adventures in the online space. As many of you may have picked up on, I live in the Panama City Beach area of Florida and absolutely love it! What does that have to do with anything? Well, I’m starting a site about Panama City Beach for vacationers!

Why Am I Starting A New Site?

We at one point considered buying a condo and during that time I learned a ton of information about the beach front condos. I noticed that the current sites available didn’t really have everything I was looking for at the time, so I decided to make my own site that has the information I wanted all in one place!

I intend for my new site to be able to first help out people considering to vacation in the Panama City Beach area and eventually I may expand to include information that would be useful for potential future condo owners as well.

Initially, I’m working on providing all of the information I can find about the beach front condos, including amenities and the floor plans of the units and how you can figure out which floor plan your vacation rental unit will have. Lodging is one of the biggest costs of a beach vacation, so knowing everything about where you’ll be staying is a big deal.

In addition to talking about the beach front condos, I will also be reviewing local restaurants and fun activities in the area. The site is just getting started, but over the next few months I intend to add a lot of useful information.

If I decided to market to potential condo buyers in the future, I’d be adding even more information about the condos such as Condo Association Fees, sales trends and even more! That’s way down the road though, so don’t expect to see that anytime soon.

If you’re looking to visit Panama City Beach, I would love for you to check out my new site, and let me know what you think! What would you want to see on a site like this? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

How This Affects My Finances

So far, the only cost I’ve incurred is my time and a couple bucks to buy the domain name. I was able to set the site up an a hosting plan I’ve already been paying for, so there was no extra cost there. What I’m really excited about is the potential for this site to make some money down the road once it is established!

If/When that happens, I’ll be sure to share some details so people can see how a website can help you make some money on the side. If the worst case happens and I don’t make a dime, I’m only out the time I spent on the project and a couple bucks to buy the domain. Little risk and major potential reward.

  1. Great job on your new site, Lance!

  2. Looks cool. I love Panama City & Panama City Beach. In 2004 I spent a few months there on a job assignment, and I’ve always followed things along though I haven’t been back yet. I notice that the site doesn’t have a button for an RSS feed. If you’d add one, I’ll definitely follow along on your updates.

  3. What a greta domain name! Good luck with the site. It sounds like a great niche to be in.
