How should I improve my classified website?
We started a classified website named www.mycplaces.com. Our website is designed with the idea that only IT professionals can post ads and exchange services among themselves. So, it's basically serving only the IT community. Currently, our services include IT job referral and no broker homes for rent.
We are doing free advertising through LinkedIn and Facebook (for about 3-4 months on each platform) but not getting proper signups. Currently we are posting ads on our own (i.e., we don't have users posting anything).
Please let me know if you have any tips on how to improve this situation and attract users to the site and ultimately grow our community. We are wondering if the website is not user friendly or if there are other issues going on.
