    Hi, there. I've planned to create a website, which would deal with 'selling leads'. Having little or no idea on that, I'm currently contemplating the ideas in my mind. The website specializes with Automobile niche and will act as a place for people to find nearby service centers. Since I'm a complete noob to this stuff, I'll have to do a thorough research on this before venting on to creating a website. However, I ran into several self fearing doubts that'd later take me up within a short run.

    1. Is there any free/paid tools to create a on page application to allow people to enter their location details and avail a service center (if any).?

    2. Since the website relates to service, is there any way by which I can keep people coming back to my website even after they've availed a service.?

    3. Other than selling a potential customer to a dealership, has the term 'lead selling' got any other explanation in IM.?

    4. Any tactics that I can employ to gain a significant place among the people.?

    5. Any advice on which I'll have to specialize my time more in.?

    6. As a personal question, "Would you seek a website to help you find a car servicing dealership, or rather you ask your friend for one.?"

    I'm aware that the thread sounds noob'ish. But yes, I don't think that I deserve a reverent position among the other BlackHats :(. Nonetheless, you all intrepid members here could lift me up by helping me :)

    1. Here are some keywords for Wordpress themes/plugins that can help with this, just search: directory listing, job board, classified ads. Easily adaptable to what you are doing.

    2. Email list

    3. I can't speak for anyone else but 'lead selling' makes me think about selling local leads to businesses

    5. Research competitor websites, load up a simple wordpress template and edit, take action

    6. I'd seek a website. But as a normal person searching for one, Google rules. Your competitors kick your ass in SEO. You are entering a competitive niche
