What are you actually trying to achieve with this site?

Is it for local businesses only? Or is it regional, state or national -- or international?

How do you plan to compete with all of the big guys -- like Google, Yahoo, Bing, Yelp, YP.com, etc etc etc?

How will you differentiate yourself?

As an advertising medium, what AUDIENCE will you offer your advertisers? How will you attract them? With what?

These are the kinds of questions you need to answer to determine whether or not your business model is viable.

Any advertising medium -- from newspapers, magazines, outdoor ads, TV, radio, etc -- exists only for one reason: to deliver an audience to its advertisers. Whether that's content, entertainment, functionality or whatever, without all components in the mix being right, you'll die.

So why would advertisers advertise on your site?

It won't be because they can... it will be to reach the audience you can deliver. The more targeted, the better.

I like the layout. It looks nicer than a lot of the other directories out there.

Your domain name does sound pretty general,
and I do believe that this could be somewhat
unpractical with positioning yourself with your site.

Thank you very much in the end I opted out for opencart due to the fact that in the long term it'll be cheaper for me but also the customization is amazing I would definitely recommend it to those whom are looking for a open source software package.

I think you mean you opted for OpenCart — "opted out” mean you didn't choose it.
