Hi, This is my first project, so I am sorry if what I want is unclear. Basically I would like a website that companies can sign up to for free and promote their website. This would include information about their company, what they sell, special offers, website link, contact details. Basically a more elaborate version of [url removed, login to view] with more information on their page. I guess is will also be like myspace/ face book. I would like the companies split into categories or groups for locations. These locations need to be in the USA and UK. Locations would be split into states and counties respectively. I can supply all those for you.
The users will require a cpanel, to update information about their company and to add pictures. I would like one picture on the company page and a gallery as one of the links within their page.
The website would need a search facililty to find a category of business and location. This would be similar to auto trader website, where you would type in your postcode and a drop down menu of types of company e.g. accountant, lawyer, gardener etc. Then the business found would have a list of companies with 2 lines to be used by the owner of that company to describe their business as well as an email address. The way I hope to make money on it is by them paying extra if they want their business in bold when it comes up after searching that category, home page featured items (picks 20 random companies that paid for home page featured listing in two columns in the centre of the home page.
Also as well as the script, I would like the person to design the layout of the site. I can do the graphics though, so if you just leave a place holder for them and I will add them in.
And I will need a database to store the information about the company.
