    Is it a successful business option ?

    If yes, what might be the ROI. I am ready to push in money, but looking for someone, who might have first hand experience in launching such things.

    Thanks.

    I run some business directory in my country with great success...
    scrape or buy all business database in your target city... Offer for little money a business profile (like business card)on your directory and you will get all businesses without a webpage..
    offer short article with a backlink from your directory blog and social signals from your social profiles for extra money like 30-50€$£
    set a price like 15-20€$£/month and buy ads on local newspapers....local business love local newspaper ads..
    And most important is SUPPORT...a local business owner have allways questions
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    oops.

    I think you guys took me wrong. I am thinking of building something like this : jasminedirectory.com

    Let me know your views on the same. Imo this is a good business option. You might have to invest in the beginning years, but over a period of time, I think, this is a self sustaining business.

    Seeing jasmine/pegasus/incrawler generating good revenue is worth thinking about.

    Please do let me know your views about the same.

    Thanks.
