Artgig Launches Bilingual Business Website -

Mon, Aug. 24 2009

Que Tu Buscas? – In Spanish it means, “What are you looking for?”

When we were approached by Fannie Lanch, a New York entrepreneur and President of the Westchester Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, with her idea to build a bilingual community website portal to service the skyrocketing Hispanic marketplace, well it sounded like a no-brainer to me.

First and foremost, the website is designed to connect Employers and independent contractors, “Experts,” using a custom secure communication system. Employers may register to post jobs and Experts may register to respond to jobs. Employers may also rate and comment on Experts.

The website also features a Classified Ads section where users may register to post ads in a variety of categories and interested buyers may contact sellers using the secure communication system we designed.

The Expert’s Gallery and the Classified Ads are linked with a secure e-commerce system and there are a variety of subscription and pay-per-ad options for use of the website.

Additionally, there are a variety of business resources available on the site via live feeds from across the globe for breaking news and travel deals.

The entire system is built on our custom CMS platform and Fannie has all of the content and system management control at her fingertips in the website Administrator Dashboard. The site is integrated with Google Analytics and AdSense and we’ve also given her a custom advertising feature to target users with category-specific ads and even target users in specific countries by IP address, if she wants to.

We rolled out the soft launch today.

I think she’s offering some special pricing (translation – FREE) for new users to get people registered and using the site.
