    Well P.hoss to start a business of Classfieds, as Fergal has indicated you have to narrow down to certain niche...Because Classifieds in itself is very wide term and covers almost all the industries,,This means there is a peculiar classifieds for each industry somewhere or other....

    First decision should be to narrow down all your thoughts to a particular niche..then we can move ahead....

    TO choose a niche suitable to you , keep in mind your strong pints, your educational background, most importantly your interests...

    Will you want your classified website cover all topics? Want to make it free or paid? If you want in one subject, that is also a better idea.

    I'll put it in simple terms for you.
    1. Design a Website
    2. Get hosting to put it online.
    3. Promote it aggressively.

    Now you can tell us what exactly you need help with.
