I have a current website based around the music industry in a specific part of the UK and it is currently at a stage of reasonable success. To increase the profile of the existing website and to monetise it for the future we are look to add a business directory (relating directly to music industry businesses & contacts)
I have a business directory plug in but it is ugly looking and I have tried but don't have the capabilities(or time) to fully adapt this into a good looking directory and easy to use.
I also have a different website address that has a wordpress directory template which could be used if able to bed into the existing website or at least make it match up with the existing.
The directory would need to:
Have claim listings
Enable business to create their own
Pay via paypal and other online options
Multi pay options including featured listings
Over 1000 business to be featured (I currently have 600 in .csv format and will deal with the specifics of this)
Obviously this is something that will grow as we go and there could be additional work on the back of this including full website design. At present we run this as not for profit but we are hopeful that the directory will bring in enough money to move us to the next level and enable us to pay someone like yourself a decent amount in future to enable the business to reach its potential.
Ideally I would like someone that has previous experience in Directory builds but this is not essential (if you have examples of this it would be fantastic). I would like to find someone to use long term for all future additions and amendments.
There is no urgency to this. We would like to have it ready by the start of 2016 so this could be done very casually and at your leisure and make sure we are all happy with the outcome.
