What I need done:
I am looking at a professional, interactive, and well-designed website that focuses on helping website owners increase their online advertising revenues.
The website will contain a web-based platform (Ad-manager) that helps website owners/ web publishers easily manage their online advertisements from multiple advertising networks (e.g. google adsense, adbrite, bidvertiser).
Web publishers will be able to register and log into this website, and manage their online ads from this Ad-manager platform. In summary, this website will be a web-based version of Openads ([url removed, login to view]), with some additional features.
In a nutshell, this website will allow web publishers /website owners to:
i) sign up for multiple advertising networks through our platform ii) manage their ads from multiple advertising networks.
iii) rotate ads (from different advertising networks) which are displayed on their website, through our platform easily
iv) track the performance of their ad displays, and
v) suggest & implement the optimal advertising network to use based on their results, to increase their ad revenue
Apart from the ad-manager and website (front end user-interface, CMS), I will be looking at the usual features of a community site (e.g. forum, mailing list and integration of individual modules).
I would be expecting some API integration (Open ID/Yahoo ID / Google keywords API) involved.
This website will also be a resource centre for Ad optimization techniques & resources for webmasters. More details will be provided later.
What I already have:
This is a brand-new site. I need design done, with graphics and mascot design. Copywriting will be provided by us. You can take a leaf from existing websites such as [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view]
I prefer to utilize existing opensource systems (such as Drupal/Joomla for CMS / wordpress for blog / etc, Plaxo for email, Captcha for spam, etc), but I am open to suggestions.
What you need to know:
This website will be used by website owners who are currently monetizing their ad-space through displaying online ads (google adsense, adbrite, etc). As the website acts like a control panel for webmaster for all their advertising networks, it has to be secure, and stable. Any downtime on the website / platform equates to revenues lost for the users.
Specific expertise I am seeking:
Your firm should have experience with [url removed, login to view] , API integration (open ID, google adsense, plaxo), and facebook app development. Expertise in SEO/ Adsense / online ad optimization is an added advantage.
