We built the site to allow those with money and no time to outsource their odd jobs to those who have time but need some extra money. And also for small businesses to sell service coupons (Grabone etc don't take on small business coupons as they want volume), and also for those who have product that they want to sell to have a unique 'make an offer' platform to be able to do so (one mans junk is another mans treasure). The Buy Now feature is also available.
There are no commission fees or success fees! We do charge minimal listing fees; 40c for 15days, 70c for 30days and 90c for 45days. Every user receives $7 knomee credit upon registration.
This site has been in the making over the past 2years and over the last 6months has been full steam ahead with development. The site was developed here locally in Hamilton on our Kiwi CMS platform SilverStripe and hosted on a local cloud, and designed by my business partner.
Question I would like to pose to all geekzone members is:
If in our shoes, how would you generate traffic or make our site go viral with very limited marketing budget?
(We are just 2 local kiwi boys giving it a shot and don't have hundreds of thousands or millions for marketing to get this off the ground)
