Project: [url removed, login to view] Type Website
Requirement Status: The concept described here is FINAL but the details…like database design, website design preferences and functionalities might change.
Domain name: To be advised.
Website Design: Elegant, clean design. Site menus to be build using rollovers/dtml.
Websites I like to see for your reference:
[url removed, login to view] ( for profile presentation)
[url removed, login to view] (for menu navigation)
[url removed, login to view] (for colors)
[url removed, login to view] (for colors)
[url removed, login to view] (for an clean, elegant feel)
To build an [url removed, login to view] type website using a dating site concept.
The site preferably must be built using ASP.NET and must be able to scale to hundred thousand members.
Webmasters would be able to create an account for free and create/draft projects for free as well. Webmasters would only pay if they opt to upgrade the project listing.
Webmaster can do a profile search on service providers (same as how a dating site profile matching is done). ONLY webmasters can search for service provider’s database. Webmaster account CANNOT search for another Webmaster profile/project.
Once a Webmaster performs a search and the provider is online, the Webmaster should be able to request an IM chat with the provider instantly using a FLASH Text chat implementation (an example of flash chat can be found on the dating script offered by [url removed, login to view])
Instant match email/notification would be sent if the Webmaster and match with the service provider’s profile/portfolio have created a project. (Please suggest on how this profile matching can be done).
Providers will have fixed amount of membership per month. ONLY providers can search for project posting database. Webmasters account should NOT be able to search for other projects posted with other webmasters.
An affiliate system should be in place. An fixed % of provider membership will be paid to affiliates who referred them. The affiliate will be paid that % per month so long as the provider is an active member/continue to renew subscription. The affiliate account will only be credited once the provider profile has been approved. Site must automatically do this (that means, if I approve a provider profile manually, the affiliate credit must be automatically reflected to the affiliates account)
For every subscription payment the site receives per month, the affiliate account should be credited automatically as well.
The affiliate account should contain the number provider account he had referred and should change accordingly when the provider discontinues the subscription.
A strict system to block affiliates clicking their own link must be in place
Different types and sizes of banner must be provided for site promotion
Only approved provider profile can search for project posting by webmasters
Only approved webmaster profile can search for service providers and chat with them if both are online.
Database design for webmaster account to be advised
Database design for provider account to be advised.
Other admin features to be advised.
Send an offline message to either parties.
Instant chat to either parties
The webmaster and provider account will have project management section
Project Creation Flow
After the webmaster profile has been approved, the webmaster can create a project (same as elance) with all the details. All webmasters will be sent an email when a new project has been posted (this option can be turned on or off on provider account). Webmaster can invite provider to give proposal…..Once a provider finds a suitable project, they will send a proposal with all the details involved…… This site is not bidding site. The provider may or may not give the amount to be charged at the proposal. Each provider will be given a separate PMB for each project…(like elance).
Once decided the webmaster will choose which provider which the provider should accept. This feature is only meant to give feedbacks as only members who have worked with each other can have feedbacks from each other.
The webmaster account should have a record of all projects created/drafted. For each project, the normal elance features should be present such as PMB, file upload mechanism …others to be advised.
The provider account should have a record of all projects proposed and access to PMB’s for each proposal as well.
Payment system to receive monthly payments should be in place.
Escrow system is NOT needed. The site will not process the payments unlike other sites. The webmaster and provider will decide the payment terms themselves and provider to be paid how and when and where based on the agreement. The site will not be involved in processing payments.
Please expect minor changes as I created this document in a hurry.
