Hope you guys have heard of cleartrip.com, makemytrip.com which have refined the way we book air / train tickets and hotels. In the similar manner, we can also have a simple website wherein we publish all details about the marriage halls available in the city.
The simple website should do the following
For Marriage Halls
1. Ability to search marriage halls by cities, budgets, availability etc
2. Ability to block the hall by paying in advance if dates were not sure.
3. Ability to register / cancel the booking by paying online via NEFT / CC
4. ability to write reviews
5. Photo gallery of marriages, rooms, halls etc
1. Ability to search for Caterers by cities, budgets, availability etc
2. Ability to write reviews about their food preparation, servings etc.
Photographers / Video coverage
1. Ability to search for Photographers by cities, budgets, availability etc
2. Ability to write reviews about their albums work, DVD video editing etc.
Like above, there can be lot for some of the following things
2. Flower distributors
3. Music bands or DJ
4. For Hindu marriage, Iyer’s are needed.
5. and there should be many more….
Top sites already contain some of the information i mentioned above. Since they are all collected and organized by the site owners, they do not have reviews and ratings etc. A simple website which can have these information with the ability to search, rate and review, will be of great help for the general public.
Value & Experience :
People are(atleast i am) desperately in need of such sites and will be of great help. It will help me decide things based on the information i get from the site. Remember all information should be lively. otherwise, this website is no different from others.
India has 28 states and 7 union territories (federally administered). Each state should have enough marriage or events hall to cover the marriages. People searching for it will increase on the website provided they are lively and time will be saved. Transaction fee can be levied per booking or what ever applicable fees. But helping people to search and locate their liked stuff is more important and it will bring enough revenue later. you can look at example sites like 99acres.com or allcheckdeals.com which have exhaled in the real estate portal business i guess.
These services need not be restricted to marriage event alone. it will be helpful for other events such as
1. Birthday parties
2. Baby shower functions
I hope you got the idea….leave your comments…
bye for today!
