Fostering local communities.
About this project
We aim to empower individuals who have skills to offer to their communities. Their biggest hurdle is how to start fast and how to connect to their local community.
LocoBiz enhances economies of families by facilitating the connection between local needs and micro-Service Providers available in the community on a map-based system. We boost economy of families in local communities by providing them a free marketing platform.
LocoBiz provides a multi Ad capability for teens, youth and up to elderly where they can indicate where and when they would provide their services. LocoBiz provides Visibility and ease of calling, Ranking and making local providers Favorite.
I self funded phase 1 of the project and have the first version of our site and marketing material ready. We have made it secure for users (SSL). Also we made sure that the interface is user friendly and ready for smartphone and tablets. We had a pre-launch in March and officially launched LocoBiz.com in 15th April 2016.
We need funding for:
1. Site upgrade: to improve our platform and provide an enhanced user-experience (estimated $3,000); completion target August end.
2. App: for preliminary work to scope and plan creating an APP version of our website (estimated $4,000); completion target November end.

Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is to reach to those in need. Young entrepreneurs, staying home moms, elderly folks and many others who have skills to offer could benefit from LocoBiz.com
