I am looking for someone who can design and set up a small and simple niche directory. I am on a tight budget as this is really more of a hobby for me and not something that I can make money from (at least to begin with). So I need someone who can creatively find an economical solution to this! - I'm really looking for a cheap way to get it up on the net and functional and once there are lots of listings I can upgrade it (although it needs to be at a minimum standard in order to attract users to it in the first place!). I can do a bit of the design (to save on costs) but I need someone to guide me on the "how-to" stuff as this is my first time creating a "real" website. I know I need to register a domain name and get web hosting but would like some guidance on this too. I am aware of some free ways to get a site up on the net e.g. [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view] but none seem to have the function of a searchable directory available. I would like to know if there is a way to utilise these free platforms and just install a script into it or if it definitely requires something more. I have been playing around with a draft on [url removed, login to view] using the blog application (as it at least has a search function and categories) but this is rudimentary to say the least! Although it is kind of cool that it has an event calendar which is a nice touch.
More info on the concept:
The directory will be a listing of birth educators in NSW (i.e antenatal classes). I want the listings to be searchable by post code (and proximity to post code) and type of class (of which there are at least 3 categories e.g. Hypnobirthing; General; Yoga). It will be free for people to list their classes and free for users to search (later I would like the ability for educators to opt to pay for a premium listing).
A similar concept can be found in a parallel niche at [url removed, login to view] I'm not a fan of their search items but it gives you an idea of what I want. [url removed, login to view] is a much more complex directory that has a category for antenatal classes but it is not a comprehensive listing as they only have paid ads.
It needs to be simple, functional and appealing.
If anyone can help with this project at an affordable price please contact me.
Please note that I have selected the $250-750 budget but if it can be done cheaper I'd love to know about it!!!!
