I am starting a new startup that operates a local online business directory where you can find businesses (much like YP.com or superpages.com.) I am divided between the two revenue models:
- Businesses pay weekly for their business to be featured on the front page.This will probably be more expensive than the second model just because of scalability. Scalability is my primary concern with this because I can only feature so many businesses at one time.
- Businesses pay monthly for a premium business account which will allow for more features on their business page and will take off all ads on their business page. I'm leaning towards this because I make money both off the ads on the page if they don't pay for premium and make money when they go premium.
Should I use revenue model 1 or two (or both) for my startup? Or should I should I use something else entirely? Thanks for all help!
