Website is 90% ready. [url removed, login to view]
It needs a PROFESSIONAL Team to CORRECT/ADD all its MISTAKES/LACKS in terms of Design + Functionalities as per the Website Description below.
SEE PPT FOR HOW IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE.
I HAD BAD EXPERIENCES WITH FREELANCERS FROM BOTH INDIA AND PAKISTAN.
I GOT NOTHING AGAINST ANY OF THESE 2 COUNTRIES BUT I WILL NOT PAY ANY MILESTONE.
I WILL PAY FULL PAYMENT AT THE END WITH BONUS IF IT IS FINISHED EARLIER THAN AGREED
REPORT EVERY 2DAY
Examples of what needs corrections:
Re-arrange "elements" in the pages
Colors Identity (make sure colors for each "theme" are used regularly etc...)
Correct Design of Newsletter (and all other Emails sent from Website to Users)
I DID MOST OF THE DESIGN JOB AND IT IS IN PPT I WILL SEND TO THE WINNER
Check ALL the functionnalities and correct any bad working or "weakly-working" ones
FOR EXAMPLE = payments, Newsletter, Options that can be bought when User place an Ad (image Zooming, more or less image, upload video etc), Admin side, Facebook bridge,Twitter bridge etc... make the Shops work as per below Descriptio

I WILL PUT BELOW THE WEBSITE DESCRIPTION
BROWSE THOROUGHLY THE WEBSITE AND SEE WHAT IS ALREADY NOT WELL FUNCTIONNING, MISSING ETC.
THE LIST BELOW IS NOT REALLY SUBJECT TO CHANGES BUT GOOD IDEAS ARE WELCOME TO MAKE THINGS BETTER.
BUT BASICALLY REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE ASKED TO DO CORRECTIONS/ARRANGEMENTS+ADD MISSING FUNCTIONALITIES

CV searching and uploading in JOBS section
Database filtering and export:
It means that if an external company wants to buy part of my database and they want only:
Males between 30 and 45 years old living in Oman, I can filter and export only these people from the Database.
All Ads can have payable options added to them:
-Extend your Ads Life Length
-Pictures’ Options: Add more pics to your Add and/or Add Zooming to your pics
-Your Ad in the AdGulf Weekly Newsletter
Currency should be chosen by User when Posting his Ads
Currency should ideally change automatically according to user location with the possibility of him choosing otherwise. If this is technically too complicated or expensive, at least make sure the prices amount of the Options or any payable services changes accordingly after User chooses the currency he wants to pay in.
Website offers Different Payment Methods:
Credit and Debit Card
At a later Stage SMS payment
Website has a Forum where Users can create topics
Possibility to RSS, share the Ads easily with other platforms etc…
Website has Advertisement boxes/banners (and admin with options to alternate different advertisings based on clicks, time, pages, or leave all auto-managing itself etc.) for Google Ad Sense and Yahoo Ads in all website + internal Ad Server
Sponsors Ads for all the sections (Managed by Google)
Website should be build and organized to generate as much money as possible

Ability to switch cities (each city treated as its own market with its own deals). Must be able to create new cities easily as we grow.
IDEALLY, must display the current city you are viewing, and remember that city the next time you log in (if it is easy to implement, if not then we can discuss this element)
Website should be FAST to download in browsers
Website should be readable on: IE,SAFARI,FIREFOX,CHROME,OPERA
Website as automatized as possible
The website has a Bad words filtering and ideally (if possible) “porn” images filtering
The Design will be an exact or BETTER reproduction of what has been done
Web-Developer should fill the standard pages with the necessary text:
Contact Us / Help / Advertise / FAQ / etc…
Website has an automatically-sent weekly Newsletter
Admin section with search option
Admin control panel for all the features (but this doesn’t mean that features are not automatized. They must be as automitized as possible but the Admin should have the possibility to change whatever he wants like Ad management or changing the commercial offers etc).
The website will be fully in English but once it is complete it will also be translated and receive an Arabic version (later one – Arabic version friendly is important but web-developer will not have to do translate etc).
I would deeply appreciate anyone who could make also an iPhone (smarphone) friendly version + Blackberry App and iPhone App...but these are options.
PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO SHARE ANY IDEA, EXAMPLE OF SIMILAR PROJECT YOU DID ETC…THAT WOULD CONVINCE ME THAT YOU ARE A PRO-ACTIVE AND IMAGINATIVE COMPANY.
