I am trying to find a way for venues, mostly pubs that have music of specific genre, to pay to add themselves to a member map. Effectively its an additional member map within the site where they would have to pay to get on it.
I thought of putting a member map within a paid access group but don't know if this would work. Any suggestion on a good way to achieve this. What got me thinking was www.myfreetime.ie
This could apply to a lot of ning sites as a revenue generator. A lot of people paying a small amount of money , maybe $100 a year. Its a listing of sorts
We are basically doing the same thing. Creating a 'Directory' via paid groups where members can find products and services related to the site. It is new so I can't tell you exactly how well it is working, the only drawback so far has been that when they upload their business logos and images they rotate on the main page with all the others pictures so I posted a question earlier today to see if there was a way to separate the pictures. Because really, why would anyone pay if they could just upload there logo and everyone would see it? I got one response so far suggesting that we could rotate only 'exclusive' photos but I'm not sure how to do it. Check my post to see if someone answers. Not sure if this helped.
If you press the edit button beside your photos on the main page you can display only the featured ones. this means you have to feature a lot but that should not be a problem. Can you provide the url to your site
what app you are using for map ?
Hi. I'm using the Apps.IO map
