I'm looking to have a web design directory built very similar to findawebdesigner dot com
The directory will have many of the same features.
You can use whether ASP or PHP. Would just need the site to be user friendly, fast loading and secure.
Each Web design company will need to be able to create a user name and password for their backend and sign up for the portal themselves.
•Zip code finder
•Profile page of each web design company. Company description, portfolio, logo uploaded
•Allow the member company's to list their services and special offers
•Customers are able to get a free quote from different local companies
•The member companies will receive the quote requests by email as well as seeing them in the backend.
•A messaging center for me to communicate with the member companies and offer them specials.
