Project Description

We are looking to build a site like [url removed, login to view]

Background/big picture considerations

this first site will be used as part of our 1st experiment (lean startup approach)

that means we anticipate future tweaks, changes etc - many of them

once we are happy with the user response, and have completed the tweaking (long enough to stand still) we will have the site mirrored in arabic.
We will, within the next four - six months be setting up operations in the Middle East and will build a bilingual technical team

that means we need to retain all IP and have full access to the code etc used (IF we don't just design a completely new site)

We are a bootstrapped startup company pre beta and pre-revenue stage
Capability and price are decision criteria
ongoing global startup technical advisor role (to guide tech team set up etc) or innovation advisor are possibilities after the contract is complete

Site build/work considerations:

The site needs to be built LEAN and FAST
We have our own finalized brand to be pulled into the site
We will want to be able to monitor site usage - to make decisions about tweaking
We will need help for the tweaks, maintenance until we have our own team in place
Security needs to be a consideration
Metrics need to be measured
Ease of use CMS - consider content largely video. CMS conducive to good SEO
Hosting of video - I heard Youtube now requires captions on their videos

is there an easy affordable tech solution to this - or is another "home"for the video recommended?

Volume of video will not equate to the sample ([url removed, login to view]) originally, however, fast loading solution required
Social plug ins essential - Smooth sharing, notifications for administrators for comments
Possibility of Ad package CMS

Schedule (non flexible):

Bid closes: 15 Oct 2012
Contract Awarded: 16 Oct 2012

Site test: 31 October 2012
Site content loading (CMS) 4 - 6 November
Site operational for release: 7 November
Expect some attention around the brand during Global International Week -traffic could become significant 12 - 18 November
