Manages an internal lead database of your prospects
The team bidding must have extensive Java and XML / SOAP experience.
The data structure comes with pre-defined Marketing Lead Types such as:
Research on Sites of Interest:
I already have the document type definitions of all my major user classes, and marketing lead classes.
The data system should allow the user to subclass any class, including the general lead class, and create his own class, with his own extended customized fields.
All users are provided with a very user-friendly interface to search, browse and manage all the leads and objects they have collected.
In particular, link partner leads will have extended management system with special functions that pertain to linking partners and link swapping.
This includes most of the functions common in link page manager applications such as [url removed, login to view]
Research Tools that find new leads to add to the central database:
Built in research tools to add leads into the system automatically, from searches, starting web pages, and backlink searches, scraping Adwords , Adsense and other paid listings, as well as other pre-defined directories to research.
Looking for a high performance Java Solution that can be configured to run on a server, or a client machine. Must support mulitple threads or processes, to be able to have many branches and hundreds of pings at once, to make the research tool as fast as possible.
The format for all data will be XML, perhaps redundant sql on my server. I'm hoping the team will have experience with SOAP, and Web Services in General.
Manual Interface - Browser Enhancement
Browser plug-in to facilitate common tasks like "Add current site to our lead list"......or "Swap links with Current Site". This will allow the user who is logged into a session to access and store all objects and configurability that they would be able to see if they logged into the web panel. This just allows the same function, as an enhancement to a browser. Will be first made in Mozilla Firefox browser, perhaps IE later on after first beta.
Contacting lists of leads by built in email program. Any person using this email sytem will automatically log every message they send to the entire organization. I would prefer if these logs were kept using an existing email solution, rather than making a new one, open to suggestions.
The system is enterprise based, meaning employee "link builders" and "list researchers" would have limited access, and everything they did would be logged. Full permission system for users of all levels to the data. This will be according to what clients and campaigns they have access to. Generally, all relevant research info is shared among the organization.
I as an employer would be able to see exactly when they added each link, did a search, send or received which email, etc.
And, the reports of their progress, are automatically made available to admin and the client.
I think for logistics, and speed of delivery, it is best to agree on a delivery date for a first phase, that just includes the management
1. General Lead Management System + specific implementation of Link Partner Lead Managment System
2. Research Tool
3. Toolbar and other Browser Plugins
Bidder must be available to speak on the phone regularly.
