[url removed, login to view]

This is a total site upgrade with the addition of billing and affiliate functions plus social networking connectivity. You will need extensive .net resources and eCommerce expertise to complete the work. [url removed, login to view] is live and currently free. It is made with dotNET 1.1 but needs an upgrade to 2.0 or 3.5 (if you can provide me with a good host for 3.5). The purpose of the site is to provide tools and strategies to sports-people looking to raise sponsorship money and to appear on this comprehensive athlete directory.


What I need is an upgrade to web 2.0 keeping the look and feel of the site but with 2010 functions and feel for user generated content and gallery viewing etc. Things like iPhone apps and widget options need to be incorporated as well as so users can promote their mini-site through facebook etc. All the current content needs to be transferred across to the new site.



A. a subscription membership function for premium members @$5 per month on a recurring subscription through an appropriate payment gateway which enables a three tiered affiliate commission system for referrals who become premium members.

B. a subscription membership for trainers, coaches and photographers to advertise their services to the general athlete membership. These guys will pay $5 per month on a recurring subscription through an appropriate payment gateway and receive a mini-site like the athlete one but with different nav menu and subsequent changes to the pages (examples available: mostly just headings).

1. Existing site upgrade summary

The main aim will be to upgrade the existing website and functionality to use the
Microsoft .NET 2.0 framework, and AJAX. This is to provide a web 2.0 feel to the site as well as making it easier to use.

The concept of a profile will be extended so that the following user types can create their own profile mini-site: Text can be entered in the form of a text box supporting some html ((see text_box1.jpg and text_box2.jpg))

• Athletes
i. Profile home page (see text_box1.jpg and text_box2.jpg)
ii. News page (see text_box1.jpg and text_box2.jpg)
iii. Events calendar
iv. Multi-media gallery (support for images, video, you tube videos, Google maps, and
interactive graphs from skinnyr.com, and maps). Each item will also support comments from registered users. The gallery would be a web 2.0 style, lightbox or similar, pic-lens enabled
v. Guestbook
vi. Sponsor Me / + new contact info (form)

• Trainers
i. Profile home page (see text_box1.jpg and text_box2.jpg)
ii. Contact me (form)
iii. Services page (see text_box1.jpg and text_box2.jpg)
iv. Events calendar
v. Multi-media gallery (support for images, video, you tube videos, Google maps, and
interactive graphs from skinnyr.com, and maps). Each item will also support comments from registered users.
vi. Fees (see text_box1.jpg and text_box2.jpg)
vii. Testimonials
viii. 'My Team' search feature that returns a search result of registered users linked to that trainer.

• Photographers
i. Profile home page (see text_box1.jpg and text_box2.jpg)
ii. Events photographed page
iii. future Events calendar
iv. Multi-media gallery (support for sample images)
v. profilename at sportfund.com
vi. Contact me (form)
vii. Fees (see text_box1.jpg and text_box2.jpg)

• Functionality for photographers to create events, and upload hi-res photos for that event which can then be sold online through PayPal.
• Ability for the existing athlete profile types (see above) to add photographer photos to the profile page, which can be then purchased.

2. Payment and commissions

There will be two types of packages for the above profiles: the first being a 'Basic' membership and the second being a fully featured package called 'Premium' with all the above features for a recurring fee of $5 US per month. This will be a PayPal subscription (or similar)

The Basic membership includes the profile home page only. Profile text and and profile pic can be changed. There are no other functions. All new members receive a free 30 day trial of the 'Premium' membership. At the end of the free trial the member is prompted to upgrade by signing up to a paypal subscription and keeping all the commissions, features and content. Members who choose not to will revert to a basic package. An upgrade button will remain on the basic member's page. A referral ticker would appear to members to show how many referrals are linked to their account. Non paying members would be able to see the affiliate commissions they may be missing out on if they choose not to upgrade.

Premium members receive the fully featured mini-site. They also receive affiliate commissions (must tick a box to elect to receive commissions. This is to be encouraged). Affiliate commissions pay for referrals through tracking identifiers from emails, widgets and buttons on the members page. All efforts would be made to ensure the correct referrer gets the commission from the visitor who chooses to join SportFund. The commission would be $1 per month and pay down three levels of referral. Only paying subscribers will receive commissions, during free trial periods the commissions earnings are frozen. Free trial members can upgrade before the end of the trial period. Cancelling a subscription cancels all commissions from that date. The whole system must be automated.

Any sponsorship donations will go straight to the profile users PayPal account via their nominated email address pre-populated in the send money PayPal page linked to the sponsorship button.

Advertising banners will move to the right side of the page and be 300 x 100. Currently they feature text and links to the athlete's site, this will change to a strict 300 x 100 image banner only with a link to the advertisers site opening in a new window. The top 10 highest paying banner advertisers will feature in order on the home page. The payment for banner ads must go directly to the members paypal account. Currently they go to mine, this is an error. Members must also retain the advertising approval function prior to the banner being published.

Drop the Google ads altogether.

The CMS instance will also need a comprehensive email campaign module so that HTML newsletters can be created, published, tracked and reported on through the CMS interface utilising the SportFund.com existing content. This will allow monthly newsletters to be managed and sent.

3. New enhancements summary

The above functionality are the core features to be included in this upgrade project. The below features are items that are additional.

• A friend system that will allow all profile users (of all types with the exception of photographers) to create their own content network.
• Redemption codes for trainers so that their referrals to the SportFund.com website will get 3 months free trial instead of 1 month if they enter the trainer redemption code.
• Email notification system on all gallery items so that users can be notified when one of their items receive a comment.
• SportFund.com Facebook, MySpace and other popular widgets so that users can add their SportFund.com widget to their Facebook and MySpace profile pages.
• iPhone SportFund app
• RSS feeds from every profiles news item list.

4. Features technical specifications

4.1 Home page
The home page will basically be the same as how it is currently with some text changes and nav menu changes.

i. Flash promotion
ii. Login module (with registration links)
iii. Main menu
iv. Master sports list – this will link off to the search page, with this sport type filter pre- selected.
v. Recent sponsorship list to be changed to 300 x 100 ad banners on right side
vi. Latest updated profiles list (linking straight to profile home page)

4.2 Signup process
The signup process will remain similar, but simplified with fewer mandatory fields and the addition of an email confirmation.

4.3 SportFund.com email address. Each profile will have the option of a profilename at sportfund.com address
