    Hello people of bussinessadviceforum.com!

    I am going to build a directory(premium, only paid subscriptions) for Asian bussinesses. I was hoping to make a directory for Asian and not only visitors so that they can search for asian-located bussinesses easily.
    What do you think of my idea?

    I thought that since more and more products are imported from Asian countries, an asian bussinesses directory would be great, especially since it will target only serious bussinessmen(have sent some e-mails and got positive answers :D)

    I am thinking of using a domain name i bought lately: Http://ASIAdir.cn/ as a first attempt to target asian bussiness only.
    Know that .cn isn't that famous yet, but the domain name seems quite nice, and with correct seo would be a first choice for peple looking for bussinesses in china and nearby countries.
    What do you think os my domain name and my whole sceptism?

    Looking for feedback!

    I think that if you can control it right you have a great idea.

    I have had several occasions to use the services of companies in China, and being able to find a good list of businesses would have saved me a lot of hassles, I dealt with a lot of scammers weeding through the lists on the other sites.

    Best of luck on this.

    There are people in my home town who specialise in buying products for resale from China. They don't just source products for themselves but also generate revenue by sourcing products on behalf of other countries. Now is a good time to promote this type of Asian based / themed business in Europe and the US.

    As you say the .cn domain isn't that famous and many Westerners may not find your name very memorable. Do you think you might be able to get a more memorable .com one?

    It sounds like a great idea, good luck with it.

    Well, i can do 2 things:
    Pray .cn will become popular:)D) or find a better name.
    However i'm thinking of starting 2 directories, the one with a .com(searching domain name) and one with the .cn i own.
    Actually, when someone buy the subscription, he will be indexed in both directories and hopefully asiadir.cn will become famous for asians and the .com i plan will become famous with the rest of the world:D

    Time'll show!
