alright this is a offfline idea I recently thought of, and wanted to get BHW advice on the method before i take action. Create a website using your local hometown name and the word "biz" as webdomain. Such as "NewOrleansbiz.com" . On this website you will list local businesses that are located in the city you chose for the webdomain. I plan to outsource the webstie creation.... Businesses can be categorized from Restaurants/Construction/AC/Heating Services/ Music Lessons/ Gym/Fitness Centers, however you want. In each listing you can describe the business and provide a little information about each business ex: menus for restaurants etc.... Within the website for each business you can locate a section for normal people to rate each business with a star system or leave comments. The better the business the better the rating the more people with recognize the business as a good place to spend their money You can generate traffic and reviews for the website through SEO or utilizing Social Media facebook etc...... you can offer giveaways for people who visit the site and give reviews about the business etc..... One you get your traffic up and people are coming to the site you can offer local advertising on the home page of the site. Utilizing Google Analytics to show the business owner how many people have been looking at your site!!! Business owners spend hundreds of thousands for dollars to advertise on a billboard in which they have no clue if someone even looks at!!!! With Google Analytics you can show them the traffic to your site and prove that paying for a banner on your site it worth it!!! You can also charge each business a membership fee of $99 per month to ensure that their specific profile on the site has special features, such a promotions, specials, more info about the business, a link to their webstie, phone numbe etc.... My local town has over 10,000 businesses!!!! if you get a fraction of that (maybe 200-300) at $99 per month thats around $20,000 per month income. YOU SELL BY CREATING TRAFFIC TO YOU SITE AND PROVING THAT THIS SITE IS WAYYYY BETTER THAN A BILLBOARD OR THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS THINK AND GIVE ADVICE IF YOU THINK THIS WOULD WORK.
