A business directory can become a very profitable business
What is a business directory?
A business directory is a website which lists all businesses within some category.
Businesses can be categorized by business, location, activity, or size. Online yellow pages are a type of business directory, as is the traditional phone book.
The details provided in a business directory varies from business to business. They may include the business name, addresses, telephone numbers, location, type of service or products the business provides, number of employees, the service region and any professional associations. Some directories include a section for user reviews, comments, and feedback. Additionaly many business directories offer complimentary listings in addition to the premium options.
How can I make money from a business directory?
Many business directories have become successful business. If you were to develop your own business directory, you should know that you too could turn your website into a profitable business by implementing any of the following strategies:
1. You can have various types of listings (i.e. free listing, silver listing, gold listing) and charge an amount of money depending on the type of listing that your visitor wishes to have. Free is obviously free.. but you can limit the number of details that he can enter. Anyone who wishes to enter more details about his listing, should choose one of the other listing packages that your website offers, and of course he shoud pay you the corresponding amount.
2. You can charge a small fee for certain advertising spots in your website.
3. You can charge extra money for those customers who wish their listings to come up first in the search results of your website.
