We need to re-brand our site www.tnareview.com.
Our site will need to be converted from its existing site to a site that functions very similar to http://la.backpage.com/FemaleEscorts/
We would like it to be test heavy so its completely optimized for search engines and is good for keywords.
The site will be an escort posting site and the best template for what categories and how postings should look can be seen at http://la.backpage.com/FemaleEscorts/
What we require:
1. An intelligent splash page where a user can select a city (all major cities in north america, mexico, london, germany, Paris) Also the ability to add cities as we require
2. Once the city is selected they should be prompted to a page similar to http://la.backpage.com/FemaleEscorts/ However we would like the page to be somewhat more stylish than this, so some design work would be required.
Also please have a look at the links to see how the ads are ultimately displayed. Regular ads on the left, and sponsor ads on the right
3. If you click on "Post an ad" at the top we need the ability for people to post an ad. This page should have the same category choices as http://posting.losangeles.backpage.com/online/classifieds/PostAdPPI.html/lax/posting.losangeles.backpage.com/. We need an additional 2 lines added in where people posting can add links under a heading 'Reviews"
4. When people want to post an ad they must pay through our online merchant which is CCBILL.com. They have a membership management system that needs to be implemented into the site to keep track of members that have paid and are eligible to post. You can read the member management of ccbill here http://ccbill.com/cs/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=Member+Management
Basically this system should be integrated for complete member management, from signup to payment, to manage the subscription, to restricting access once the membership expires.
5. The charge options we will be looking for are $10 per month for unlimited monthly postings, so they can access the site and post as many times in the month as they want (however there must be a spam guard in there to stop them from posting more than once in 24 hours). The second option will be $15 a month with auto-reposting every 3 days, and a third option of $20 a month which gives them a feature posting. (these amounts can all be changed in the ccbill management system.
6. Some elements of our existing site must be incorporated into the new site. we have a database that logs escort reviews, people can post reviews and view them on our site. http://tnareview.com/providers
We need to have a link to the review section off the main site, and need all paid restrictions removed from the reviews. Anyone should be able to view the review in its entirety and add reviews. The membership system of this area has to be kept so we can log and keep track of users. But there should be no restrictions or charges to view any content on the website. The only payment is to post to the escort ad section.
Please ask if there are any questions.
We are open to design ideas, we want to keep it simple but give it an elegant look as well. The backpage site that was referenced earlier is a little sloppy, and we want a more polished feel to the site.
