From your ad, you are in other words a middleman. Why should I come to you instead of my intended target?

  • Your terms and conditions don’t fully explain what information you take, how you use it, and how you mitigate fraud.

  • You want us to register/create accounts and you don’t have an SSL certificate.

Also fire whoever made the site for you. It easily redirected me to http://superlist.byaviators.com/

And unless you get technical soonest and move off a CMS, it will be your limitation quite soon, that’s if you plan on scaling.

@BoazKE Not a middleman, all we are trying to do is get all businesses in one place so that when consumers log online they can be able to check on what they want and locate the nearest shop to buy or do the service

We are better than our competitors simply because:

  1. There is no chance for fraud
  2. We use both videos and images. Companies can incorporate their logos slogans etc. In short it is a virtual shop
  3. After listing as many businesses as possible, consumers will be able to log online, check what they are interested in and locate the nearest place to buy the product or service.
  4. Very friendly prices

I value your feedback. Thank a lot

Thank you for your feedback, what do you suggest we do?

I think while you run on Wordpress, you should be developing your own platform from scratch, this gives you extensibility you want. Right now Wordpress feels good as it gets you up and running faster, but you will start seeing the limitations quite soon when you can’t do some things with efficiency they deserve.
