Daily Deals and Social Reviewing



Please read the project details carefully and contact me with links to admin panel of similar sites done by you to get further details of this project.

It's not just another daily deals site.

It will basically work as per Yelp's latest model which includes deals engine & check in to locations plus I need online reservations and bookings too.

Please study the latest functions, features, revenue models etc in depth of Yelp.

We are looking for something better than Yelp which is easy in navigation and rich in User Interface & features.

This site is for Middle Eastern Market and we need it to support local infrastructure, for e.g. we don't have zip code system for address here, every country has a different currency, business verification is done by commercial license no etc...

Basic features on which the site will be based:

1) Deals:

It will work as Groupon or LivingSocial. Will provide you detailed functionality document.

2) Reviews:

Same as in Yelp with like, dislike & follow the business buttons.

3) Reservations:

An online reservation tool which can be customized as per the type of business using it. For e.g. Hotels can use it for room booking, restaurants for table booking, clinics for check up appointments, spas for massage booking, Auto service for car wash booking.

Basically all the service based businesses can use same type of interface for reservations but Hotels and restaurants will be bit different.

This booking tool should be capable of synchronization with businesses POS tools.

Few examples of online booking tools:

4) Events:

Same as in Yelp but would like its UI as in Club Planet. [url removed, login to view]

5) Check in's:

Users should be able to check in to a location through mob or by a computer.

6) Socialization:

Complete socialization of the site, users should be able to add or invite friends, share each activity on other social networks along with our site, every activity creates a news feed which goes into activity stream of that city. Users can post pics, tag them with their friends, business stores where it's taken or any product of that business like any menu item from a restaurant.

It should maintain a complete database of users activities based on their reviews, checkins, deal redemptions etc to create social graph & suggest them and their friends about businesses of their interests and help them in deciding where to go or what to try.

7) Maps:

Everything will be mapped as in Yelp and searches can be also done on maps, for e.g. i want to see restaurants in specific area so only restaurants are pointed out on map for that region. Customized pointers for each category to be used on Map.

Best e.g. for this can be found at [url removed, login to view]

On left side of the map you can see a list of categories, just select any category and select the city via map or write it in the field above these categories and it will show all the specific businesses present in that region.

8) Language:

The site will be multilingual, English & Arabic, database of predefined strings will be prepared. In Arabic version, mirror image of the site shall appear as it's written from right to left.

Site will have 3 login types.

User – Merchant – Admin

Technical Details:

Open platform, user generated content web 2.0 site.

PHP, MySql, Ajax jquery


All the styles should be managed from a single CSS file.

The design should have a web 2.0 look & feel.

Code & Copyrights:

Code must be clear and commented, no encryption, Source code will be our property. Developer can't resell it to anyone else & signs NDA.

SEO Friendly:

All the url's should be SEO friendly and in accordance with latest algorithm change by Google (Farmer algorithm)

Note: Site needs to be lightweight.

I am open for suggestions and amendments.
