Sorry if this is in the wrong section.
I am creating a business directory website for my local town which will also include events and jobs.
However, I am struggling to find the best way to create the categories for each section.
I think I have the business categories ok which I think covers most businesses and services. These are as follows:
- [myTown] High Street (this will include shops)
- Business and Office
- Computers and Telecoms
- Education and Tuition
- Finance and Legal
- Food and Drink
- Good Suppliers and Retailers
- Health and Beauty
- Property and Maintenance
- Tradesmen and Construction
- Travel and Tourism
However, I am now a bit stuck on the events and job categories.
Should I be keeping these categories similar in each section to keep consistency, or different? I have found I can probably have 6 or 7 categories for the events which are as follows:
- Virtual and Online
- Events in The Village
The list of categories for the jobs section includes pretty much every business sector which I feel is way too long.
Is there a good way or practice to determine categories for such a website? Should they all be the same across all sections - mainly the business listing and job categories?
Any advice would be great, thank you!
