The proposed project is a Web Portal that will serve the public for the purpose of Advertising, Marketing, Recruitment, Job search and Sending Bulk SMS. The Web portal is going to combine all the functionality of existing standard websites that provide the function of Advertising and Marketing, Recruitment and Job Search and also Bulk SMS.
The purpose of the website is to generate online income by paid users and to offer free services to users who don’t have a budget for the service they desire from the website.
So the Website is going to allow anyone to post free adverts with the understanding that the adverts they post must be in line with our rules and regulations for advert content.
The web portal must be developed in such away that allows adverts to be deleted by the administrator if the user violates our terms and conditions. Immediately an advert is deleted, the person that placed the advert will automatically get an email saying that their advert has been deleted because it violates one or more of our terms and conditions.
