Feature Request: IP Brochures


Recommended Posts

I'm very impressed at how Invision Power has basically replaced everything I've done on my site, which is about Turkey (I'm an American living in Turkey). Now, I just want to merge everything under the Invision Power features. You guys are the best, and if I can do everything under your community software, it would make my life a LOT easier.

But there's one part of my site, which I'm still working on now, that Invision Power hasn't done yet, and I offer this as a suggestion: Brochure Websites.

Although it's far from finished, you can find an example here (please forgive the lack of refinement):


Basically this "Brochure" site is for those businesses which don't have websites and which don't want to pay for them, it's for "Mehmet's shish-kebab stand."

The price for a brochure website like this would be so low, that Mehmet would gladly purchase it. And the effort the forum owner would have to expend would also be so low that it would be worth it to go out and do it. Personally, I think a system like this would be very profitable where I am.

Everything works from a single control panel, that is, a forum owner can simply upload text, photos, and the geo-coordinates of the business's location, and suddenly that business has a one-page website with everything anybody needs to know about that business.

Additionally, a forum owner or his/her agents can go to a restaurant (for example), talk to the owner, and in just one hour he/she can make them a brochure website, and walk away with cash in hand. And that brochure website would be integrated into the IPB community suite. It's an instant website which will bring customers to that business from the forum owner's community, and put cash in the pocket of the owner of that forum, just by walking around with a digital camera and a laptop, and talking to local small businesses!

Of course this is just a suggestion. I'm going to pursue this idea with our without you... But since you've basically replicated everything I've done (in a far more professional way), I thought I'd share my latest idea with you... since I think you could do a far better job of this than I could!
