**_Objective_**

We require a fully functional music library website. Our business offers music licensing solutions for media professionals. As such we require a user friendly website, capable of hosting an extensive library of sound clips that offers a sleek, professional service.
This is a fantastic opportunity for creative designer/programmer to work on an interesting and promising project with the potential to gain further earning as the business grows.

**_Overview of requirements_**

Initially we expect the site to host 3000 audio sound clips for users to browse, add to cart and purchase. However we will consider launching and gaining revenue once we have reached 1500 audio samples depending on how well we see the service functioning at that precise moment.

We foresee the samples to be two minute in length @ 128kbs. Our requirements include a build in media player that will allow the user to listen to the sample whilst still able to browse the site. We will load the tracks into an FTP so you can use them for the site. We require advice on webspace and servers.

The back end of the website needs to be simple and easy to use with a clear interface for us to upload new tracks to the library as the business grows.

**_Design requirements_**

We require the site to have a clean appearance, utilising lots of white space allowing it to appear fresh and easy to use. We have a full set of brand guidelines and we will require the chosen web-designer to follow our guidelines and ensure the site is designed to meet our identity.
Please use the simplicity of the iTunes website as a reference point.
We will need the buttons on the site to reflect the brand style and as such will be able to get our graphic designer to create these. You will need to provide us with a spec for this.
The pages we foresee the site having are:
* HOME [Containing an 'about us' profile, buttons linking other site pages]
* PRODUCERS [List of 10 Producers who make music on spec for the company. Biography, Picture of Producers and embedded video links of their work accompanied by audio clips] * Please note we will be contacting Producers when we have the Beta Site Live
* CONTACT
* LIBRARY [The library will contain all music, a search function and also the media player that allows user to listen to the music - genres will include:

We foresee the chosen web designer being involved during two stages of the set up process. You will need to build, design and demonstrate a fully functional Beta site with example music. Following that there will be a short break where we recruit the music for the website. The designer will then we required to upload the first 1500 tracks, ensuring that the site is fully launched without problems.



Initially we will be taking Payments through Bank Transfers or PayPal, therefore we will require a 'Buy' feature. When the 'Buy' button is clicked we need an email sent to us to notify us which track has been purchased and by whom. We will then email details of payment through to the buyer. We will not be storing the Masters online. We will keep them on External Hard Drives and upload the Masters and send to the buyer as and when required.

As the business grows we will need to develop E-Commerce into the site so payments can be taken electronically. This feature is not needed now but maybe in the future, therefore we require someone with previous E-Commerce experience.

We would also like the option of having Members on the site so Customers can log into their account. In this we would like features such as:
* Favourites
* Cart

We would like to store their email addresses on a database so we can send out Newsletters to the users.



**Important:** We need the search function to be able to search tracks by key tags associated to them. For example, if we searched for 'happy' 'up-lifting' then it would return a number of artists and track titles with those tags associated.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you.
