Market Size and Money

I was asked in an interview yesterday why I helped build an Arabic Social Network. The specific question was, “Isn’t the market pretty small”?

First, I don’t agree that the market is small – but small is a relative number.  I’m more interested in revenue potential than I am market size.  Revenue is a REAL number.

I would rather focus on revenue share than market share because I can spend revenue.  Market share doesn’t buy me anything,

Besides – if you own 100% of a small market and it generates good revenue, what’s wrong with that?
