I want to launch a social networking website aimed at business professionals
The website will be aimed at companies looking to network and sell their products, entrepreneurs seeking funding, companies / individuals looking to invest in new company start ups etc.
and will feature groups, profiles, forum, events etc …… ideally would like the site to look and have a similar template & style to linked in.com. the site will have both free membership and also premium membership options that will allow paid members additional benefits such as discounts to events and also other benefits - in other words unlimited access to all features of the site.
I want to use and customize a script for the site. Looking at using either [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], elgg, or some other script (possibly you have a script of your own I can use?). At the moment I am leaning towards using skadate as it has a good global member search feature which my site will require. I am open to suggestions however.
There will 2 parts to the site as follows;
• A landing page which will give detailed information on the features and benefits of becoming a member of the site .it will consist of several pages of text and have a link to the community page.
• The community site itself using the customized script. With user features as follows:
• ‘membership options’ page will link to a diagram giving a breakdown on membership options for both free and premium members
• ‘events’ will give a list of cities users will click on that will give details on the events held in that city. This will inititially be empty but will populate with event details as events are promoted
• ‘groups’ feature with groups directory
• ‘classifieds’ feature mainly focusing on jobs
• ‘search’ feature where members can search for other members by profile type worldwide. Skadate has a good search feature.
• ‘Inbox’ where members can check and send messages
Ideally looking to have a system where free members are limited to the amount of connections and profiles they can search / have. Also allow premium members to get 50% off the purchase price of tickets to events.
The site will need to set up a simple payment gateway so members can pay to join. This is likely to be PayPal. Skadated supports PayPal. I think some of the other scripts do as well.
As I am a start up company I am looking for the best value on both cost and also quality of work. However, this is a good opportunity for a the winning bidder as I expect to update the site with new features on a regular basis as well as adding geographic localised pages for different countries and also adding new languages so the winning bidder will be guaranteed long term work .
I will provide the script, draft designs and logo’s etc just need the designer to do a good job in putting it all together. I expect the winning bidder on this project to be able to understand good English and be enthusiastic and to be keen to work with me to see the launch of a high quality site that they themselves would want to join.
To give interested bidders an idea of what I am looking for I have added attachments to the project. Bidders are welcome to suggest with their own ideas. This project might benefit a first time designer / programmer looking for long term work.
Thanks for your time
