WHAT WE REQUIRE:
We need a unique "dating" website developed (though graphic design may be outsourced depending upon whether you have a talented designer on staff and cost vs. quality considerations) that will utilize many existing open-source software tools already in use in this industry model and in other unrelated industries. We are looking for something similar to a [url removed, login to view] in it's functions and features (i.e. navigation systems, "matching" e-mail notifications, format of individual "member profile" web pages, etc.) YET not an exact "clone" in that we will have additional search fields, broader appeal to a wider audience (i.e. single, married, straight, gay, and multi-lingual), and additional modern communication systems (i.e. e-mail to SMS, audio & video chat, etc). The amount of pages will be minimal at first, but of course if one is familiar with this model, you know that the member profile template pages will grow in number as membership increases so it must be developed with that in mind.
What we will contribute [url removed, login to view] is required by the Web Developer:
This site is new and requires all stages of development. As aforementioned, we need modern, vibrant, "attention getting" design so at this stage we may or may not assign this portion to a designer that has the "look & feel" we want (please submit bids with this in mind, i.e. "with design", "without design"). We will provide most all content (text, database search fields, etc), and have a marketing plan already developed. Knowledge and experience in building this "Dating Website" model would be a BIG PLUS as design flaws or "bugs" as the result of poor work would derail our very costly marketing efforts in this VERY competitive industry.
Time Frame for Delivery is dependent on many factors such as Total Development Cost (and payment schedule), Post-Construction Support, etc. We are looking to launch a quality competitive product. Many Thanks for your time Ladies & Gentlemen
