I want to create a prototype website initially, with a fuller version to follow, if there is interest from the membership that joins the website. The initial budget is for the prototype, but must be testable by prospective users by the middle of September. The specific purpose/details will be disclosed after signing an NDA, which will be provided at a later date (or updated at a later time). It is essentially a professional networking site.
There must be a way for members to sign-in, and a members section and a public section. But only members can invite other members, but members should be able to provide a link to their customers who can click to a blog or other posting by that member. There will be a discussion board, a place to ask questions and get answers, which needs to be easily searchable, as well as a job site for posting postitions and resumes (which have restricted access). Members should be able to search a database to find other members by specialty, region, etc. Members should be able to provide links to their own websites (and from their websites to their blogs on this site).
Perhaps guests can have access to the entire website for a seven-day period at the inviting members option (where they are not inviting them to be a member.) There should a provision for charging a membership fee, though it will not be charged at this time.
There also must be an affiliate/ad program to generate revenue for the website, so it can be somewhat self-sustaining. Perhaps there can be a webstore, but it would need to be for products from third parties/drop shipping sites. There should be an Amazon link to purchase recommended books and products from that site.
I would like there to be content that is relevant, but old content should be put in some type of index that can be searched and retrieved. Perhaps a content provider such as Mochila or some other relevant site would be used for that purpose.
When a member logs in, they should go to their page, which they can tailor for their needs, and navagate from there to anywhere else on the website. There can be a default setting, so that new members do not need to immediately create their page
This is just a prototype to see if there is any interest to build out the project.
Bid within the Budget otherwise Ignore this Project if it doesn't suits you ! Thank you !
