iLister For Collectibles Websites

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

We realized that our iLister Business Listing script can have a number of additional applications for the business on top of merely using them to run classifieds websites. And we would like to share our ideas about iLister script usage with you!

iLister is a brilliant solution for creating your unique SEO-friendly collectible websites. Let your visitors find stuff they need, trade or get rid of stuff they don’t.  It requires no modifications of iLister. You should simply remove all existing categories and add new categories and subcategories corresponding to all varieties of the collectables you are covering.
You can have an all-in-one collectable website for your local area, or run a nation-wide collectable website on a more specific category (dolls collectable, knives, baseball cards, coins or stamps), or even a very focused website (Pre-WWII Silver Dollar Collectable, or Bowie Knives of the World).
You can see an example of iLister-based collectible website at our Demo page.
iLister is a great framework to set up online communities for collectors. Customize the system to feature one specific or several collectible categories: dolls, coins, toys, knives, artwork, antiques, jewelry, glass, pottery, radios, photos, sports items, memorabilia, etc.

Go beyond what a simple collectable site is about! Run iLister as an online catalog of your collection featuring thousands of items you own. Show your favorites to the world complete with pictures and videos. Augment your site with a storefront of your own collection to let visitors buy items you no longer need.

Alternatively, set up a collectible community and let fans like you build it and grow it. Change the design, look and feel, use advanced SEO features to get your items indexed by search engines to get max exposure and attract new members.

Last, but not least, you can run your website in one or several languages. Translate the lang file, and the website will instantly show in the languages of your choice.
