    Hi, how do you monetize local business services. For example, I've really wanted to make a directory like feature where companies would pay to list their site. However, every package (wordpress and joomla) that I look at look like crap so if anyone knows a good way, please share thank you!

    I've done basically the same thing and was in the same situation so decided to code everything by hand :/

    What I did though was check out about 10 sites that had what I wanted then took the best bits and merged them into one.

    When I've got all mine set up I'd be happy to zip up all the html and css to you? Might be a couple of weeks yet though.

    Or just outsource it. Go to people per hour and someone will do it for £100 or something. Remember though that the look of the website isn't as important as you might think, I mean sure it can't be crap, but if it gets them the visitors then that's all that matters.

    In fact, I'd be happy to code you a site like this if you wanted. Might have to charge a bit though. What is it exactly you've got in mind?
