This isn't information; it's a pitch to trust you - you've been around the block a few times; you've surveyed users; things are changing, you embrace change, you'll use every means possible...

None of this is in any way a concrete plan - no one's asking for excessive detail. Just something more than blather about why you should be paid $40 a month. I'm hearing general platitudes about the industry and your knowledge of it.

Without buyers, it doesn't matter what you build or how lovely it is. There's a trail of all sorts of lovely development that's gone completely to waste because the businesses couldn't get buyers to use it.

Keep us posted when the site goes live and the skeptics among us can take another look

EXACTLY!  The BUYERS?  oh Lord,  where are they? and how and where do we get them to use it?  Advertising and flaunting! and millions of $$$$$$.

well said .

Honestly, I don't know how else you would answer this question. It would be like him asking you how you plan to make great selling images in the next year. You either can do it or you can't. There's no real tome of traffic building secrets out there (most of the strategies are all online). That doesn't mean it doesn't take talent or is easy to do though. I guess if you want to see if he can build traffic look at some of his other websites and judge him based on those.

You can answer how you go about to create images, you cant predict if they will sell well. Your question is a fallacy asked like that.  But any business plan needs to address how you are going to promote and market your product. If you cant answer that question, the bank wont play. Believe me. The answer Justin gave is not a marketing plan, its a pitch.

You can say I have a budget of so and so. We are going to do Google Adds. We are going to do page spread adds in top photo magazines. We are going to send out emails to our existing email database. We are planning on doing some discount promotions. We are working on best SEO placement. All this is going to happen in the next 6 months. Etc etc. Thats a marketing plan.

This is kind of my point. You can say all that and actually go out and do it, and still not bring in enough customers. None of what you said would make me have any additional confidence that it would bring in customers.

Fair enough, but I am no marketing director nor do I run an agency. So there might be better ways of promoting and marketing PE. Television adds, news paper adds, radio adds. But then you need to have a serious amount of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
