ListingPro WP Theme, Best Way to Build Directory Site with WordPress

It is true what I wrote yesterday, wordpress can be used to make various types of websites. From e-commerce to personal blogs. Even WordPress can be used to build listing sites or directory site.

The listing site is a kind of website that collects data from certain cities and even countries. The data is in the form of information relating to the city such as restaurants, hotels, tourist attractions and even homes for sale. Actually not always related to what I mentioned above.

It depends on your creativity as well as the needs of the people around you. For example people need information about bird sellers. You can gather stores that sell pet birds and then combine the information on a website.

The benefits are overwhelming, you can withdraw fees from bird sellers, you can offer the highest position so that the bird sellers can get orders through information from the website.

Then you can also benefit from pet bird seekers. For example, you apply a membership system with a monthly fee. Of course pet bird lovers are willing to spend money to get good pet bird seller information. Collectors always look for pet birds every month. Of course this is a new business opportunity.

Well, wordpress with its sophistication can be transformed into such a site. Of course the role is the use of templates. Therefore, on this occasion I will try to briefly review wordpress listing templates

1. Header

In the header section there is a search column that is equipped with the ability to detect the user’s location. The process of detecting the location of this user can be automatically if the user allows tracking through the browser. But if the user doesn’t want his location to be tracked automatically, then you can press the button next to the Search column.

If the site is opened using a Smartphone, GPS access permission is needed. If opened by using a desktop or laptop, then determine the location based on the address of the internet provider.

Then at the bottom there is also a category. You can make various categories according to your needs.

2. Favorite Location

ListingPro provides searches based on favorite locations. Actually you can add the locations that are most interested here. Maybe you can choose the most populated location in your area. In the case of pet bird sellers, you can add to this section where they live. Usually they live in the countryside.

It would be very interesting if website users could find the address of a pet bird seller in the countryside.

3. Exclusive Spot

In this section you can add exclusive places. If you are good enough, you can offer this spot to clients of course for a fee. The term is premium listings.

4. Add Testimonials


You can add testimonials from premium clients. You can add videos of their success stories here. Or you can also add videos from site users. The point is that what you do here can increase client and user trust.

5. Blog Listing


Listing Pro is also equipped with a blog system. Maybe there are times when you want to write a blog related to your business. Of course this will also increase traffic from search engines. Posts on the blog also function as content marketing. You can write things related to listings.

That’s my review. Hopefully what I have said above can help you to choose a template listing. I recommend ListingPro
