We are a new company and are looking for a web developer / agency to develop our website. We have spent six months planning and designing the site (we have a very detailed specification brief and a site map). We did have a web developer but unfortunately he pulled out at the last minute. We are now seeking a developer / agency that could develop our site as cost effectively as possible and help us maintain and develop the site on an ongoing basis.
We are a social networking and knowledge share company which encompasses both online and offline elements. We will be providing events, online networking and online information tailored to the individual user.
Key to the website is the ability for members to provide content through videos, articles, reviews and recommendations. We would like members to only see information that is relevant to them through dynamic filtering of profiles and databases. Building a scalable infrastructure is very important.
We would like the site to be built around 5 products which we have detailed below.
This is an online resource and guide. The guide is split into 5 topic areas. Each page is split into 6 areas, each housing a different component which is drawn from a database of components. Each component will have a list of attributes attributed to it so that only components matching the user profile of the user viewing it will populate a page at any given time. There will be 3 attributes which will have to match up to display a component on a page.
The review function is very much like Tripadvisor
This is event based and will have an informational online presence. Details of the next event, last event, past events and future events will be online with the ability to add a new ‘next event’ page which will then automatically move the others appropriately. The last event will be relegated to the previous events page as an archive page housed in a list of previous events.
This product is an online forum and poll area. Various threads are linked to throughout the site (where relevant) to facilitate discussion about selected information and activities. Users should have the ability to add their own threads and discuss anything they wish based on compartmentalised topic areas which can also be added to. Textual screening and moderation is essential to maintain the social environment.
This is an online networking product which provides members (on sign up) with a blank ‘profile’ page onto which they can upload pictures and text about themselves. Friends can only be added to a users profile if they have met in person (by use of a number on a card maybe). The usual features will be present so that friends can send messages, text can be changed etc.
Similar functionality to a simple FaceBook
This is a searchable online database of people who have signed up using a secondary membership. These people are searched by the members (Members can sign up separately as well). This product can link to Product Four if secondary members’ services have been used.
The number of members we hope to achieve is in the region of 5000 initially. All legal requirements must be abided by, including accessibility guidelines as outlined in the WC3 guidelines. The website should be completely secure and comply with data protection regulation.
The question of maintenance and ongoing support is an important one as is the hosting requirements.
