Could anyone describe how should I get started with a project like that and what steps related to technology should I use for the making of the website?
I know that Wordpress could be an option but there are limitations.
Any opinion about the cost of a custom solution in general and tricks that I should avoid?
My main concern is how should I attract companies and consumers/visitors since there is nothing to present or advertise at the beginning.
How should I get the critical mass to start getting leads and the attention of companies?
Is also such a business model viable and which are the potential threats now and in the future?
I have seen successful cases but I am not familiar with the starting process.
Could social media provide a test environment before someone invests in the creation of a website?
Any further advice is very much appreciated!
