I am working on a business idea which is for lack of a better general description an 'uber for <niche>' where a service worker signs up and provides proof they are certified and licensed and will then set their hours and services offered – the niche I am focusing on has workers offer up to ~13 different services. The customers will be able to book the service they want and specify a location for it to be performed.
I'm trying to figure out how to validate this, I know my target worker is 18-35 female with proper schooling and my target customer is 16-50 female that wants the service provided. The place they would spend the most time is Facebook and Instagram so I will try advertising there. Since it is closer to a market place than a traditional business I am thinking that I will need to focus on multiple ads and validation methods. One for the worker/serivce provider and one for the customers/end users.
Would creating two landing pages that focus on the different types of people I need then trying to drive traffic to the landing pages and seeing how many sign up for a mailing list be a good way to validate the business idea?
I could cut out the service worker part by hiring my own workers though that likely takes more cash than I have and would end up having to raise money too early.
I am looking to build a marketplace in my country that is similar to Etsy.
I've been looking for wordpress themes on Envato that have similar functionality. The most important aspect of it would be that the sellers can have their own individual stores just like on Etsy.
From my brief research all data point to either the "WC Vendors Pro" or "Dokan" plugins. What I have not decided yet is the actual theme. The only WordPress page builder I am familiar with is Elementor .
Do you have any recommendiations?
