We need someone who can create a responsive website similar to Yelp/Yellow Pages using any related add-ons required to make it happen.
It must be powerful enough to handle 200.000 company listings and completely searchable by keyword (#hashtags) and location.
It also must be powerful enough to handle all our users (estimation: 1 million) who will have to sign up to review. They should have an option to create new account or connect via Facebook and lately login into it.
Company listings will be divided in 13 categories, and each of the category will be divided in 5 - 7 subcategories. When a user chooses one of the categories he’ll have an option to choose a subcategory and to choose between few filters or “select all”.
Also, a user will have a possibility to perform a search using keyword/location.
All results should be displayed in an order of relevance and with a map pinpointing their location (pin is specially designed).
Company listings typically contain the following data:
*Contacts - Telephone, Fax, Email
*Website or social media pages
*Space for their own logo (if they don’t have it, default logo of category will be displayed)
*Google Maps location (with our own designed pin)
*Business classification (i.e. hotel, car rental, etc)
*Reviews and ratings
Another feature is giving business owners ability to claim listings and modify their profiles using login/password. Of course, there should be an option for them to sign up and while doing so, they should fill a form which will contain paying options and methods.
The back-end must be simple and allow for easy import/export and modification of data and website. We must be able to modify content. The back-end must also allow us to approve user-submitted business reviews, etc.
The web pages we require are:
Additional options we need:
*parallax scrolling: it should be enabled only when user clicks one of the links in footer area (About, FAQ, Terms, etc.),
*pop up windows: company listings will be displayed in them,
*ads: only from sponsors,
* social media integration.
Graphic design will be provided.
Text for the pages and business data in necessary format will be provided.
Please note that the developer must be fluent in English language so as to avoid any miscommunication or misunderstandings.
