Creating a directory website

Posted on February 28, 2017 at 10:00 pm

If you are looking to build a directory website then you will need to consider the costs involved in not only building it but making it successful. Many people have great ideas about building a directory for people to search for suppliers or companies that can offer the services or products they need. Directory sites can make you a lot of money but you need to make a lot of decisions about how it is all going to work before you start building it. You need to consider how you are going to make any money off the site. Some people chose to let people add their business for free to the directory and then make money from allowing adverts on their site. This often encourages business owners to sign up as they will not have to pay to do so but may take a good while before you start making any money off the adverts, if at all!

When you are trying to sell advertising space on your website, potential advertisers will want to know the traffic to your site. If the site has only just gone live or not yet live then you are going to struggle to guarantee them any views and therefore the price they are willing to pay often drops.
