Project Overview: This project is about a cashback site, where members who signup for particular offers get varying amounts of cash paid back into their account. This amount has a minimum threshold of $25 before it will be paid to them via Paypal. An example of this is www.prizebook.com. It has a very nice interface, and looks professionally done. I would require a similar looking site. Other such sites: [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view]
1) Opportunity There are numerous Cost Per Action (CPA) networks out there listing many incentiviced offers - where we as the publishers can either give cashback or additional products along with the offer. Therefore, I would need a website that integrates all these elements together. 2) Objectives To have a website that ensures that only members that sign-up for the offer gets the cash-back. It must also be user friendly, and clearly explain the benefits of signing up as a member, as well as include a FAQ/Tutorials for new members. The website should also have a 'viral' element - a referral system where they will get paid the cashback amount for their referral's first signup. (Eg: Member A refers Member B. Member B signs up for an offer that pays out $15. It will be credited to Member A's account. Member B will start earning from his 2nd offer) To also have a forum for members to share about other free offers out there on the Internet. 3. Functionality The website should be able to differentiate members from different countries. (US/UK/CA/Int'l) As some offers are geographic, members from Canada will not be able to sign up for offers pertaining to the US. They will be told something like 'This offer is only available in the US'. It must also be able to track down which member signs up for which offers, and make that offer not available to signup again. (they'll probably see something like 'You have already signed up for this offer. Please browse through our other offers'. (Pls see [url removed, login to view] for their interface) Also should include a Search function, where members can search through offers by Keywords. It should also have a referral page where members can see how many people they have refered so far, and their earnings from each referal. (tagged to which offer they signup with) It should also have promotional materials in the referral page. (Banners, E-mail creatives etc.) It should also have a easy to grasp admin interface, where the admin team can login and make changes easily. (Inclusion of offer, removal of offers, change of payouts, etc.) 4. Benefits Members of the website will be able to enjoy cash rewards when they signup for offers that pique their interest. They will also be willing to recommend their friends/families as it will cost them nothing to signup. And yet new accounts will receive a $5 signup bonus. (minimum payment threshold $25) 5. Constraints The tracking portion in the website needs to work without a hitch, as a single bad testimonial from a person who signs up for an offer but did not get credited the cashback amount could lead to the demise of the website. 6. Other Key Deliverables The website must have a nice logo relating to the domain name. (domain name already registered, will be released to the coder when project commences) Site theme must be simplistic, yet aesthetic. It must be colorful yet professional. Different size banners must be created as promotional materials for members to use. Support desk must also be incorporated into the site, where users can submit a ticket and a reply will be sent to them as soon as possible via e-mail. (no Live support) A comprehensive FAQ page would also be required.
All browsers, as much as possible. Also, it should have a short loading time, without too much fancy graphics.
