I have a Joomla/Virtuemart template that I just set up on my site, and I am pretty familiar with how to use Joomla, but need a little help. Please see my site at: http://www.bacolodbazaar.com. What I wanted when I started the site is a virtual marketplace/bazaar where local businesses in our town can post their goods in virtual kiosks or virtual mini-stores, and people can buy their goods online through us. It got a bit time-consuming, so I want to simplify my site such that members can just post their items for sale on my site for free, and buyers just contact the sellers directly if they want to buy. I need help on how to set it up in such a way that it needs as little monitoring as possible. For example, members can post a certain number of items up to a certain period of time so that the site won't get bogged down by too many posts. There should be a "Report abuse" button which users can use to report members who sell illegal items, etc., so I can just remove the items at my discretion.
I also need help in making advertising packages for my site. It should be simple, preferably something that I need to update only monthly. Please feel free to make suggestions as well on how to improve my site. I need to keep this cheap, but not unreasonable of course. Perhaps the offer can be divided into phases with a quotation for each phase so that I can try you out first, and so that it won't be expensive. Thanks!
