We are seeking to launch a new football pools website.
We are searching for someone to design a web site to run a 4th online football pools website which can handle to start with around 50,000 – 100,000 + entries allowing for this to increase at a possible rapid pace, accepting various payment online methods to include: Visa, cards, Paypal or alternative payment options, to include automated processing methods, providing links back to entry page after payment has been verified, allowing selections and picks to be made every week with their own password or screen names, displaying standings every week, and allowing for a management section to make changes on a weekly basis.
One of our competitors is [url removed, login to view], we would be seeking to design some thing on similar lines with a number of unique features
The website is to provide an exciting user experience with the ability to win from a 6 from 10 pick selection as opposed to the current 8 from 10, increasing the number of users chances to win the prizes.
This is not going to be Fantasy Football, it going to be the real thing, competing again [url removed, login to view],
We intend to launch the website one month before (JUNE 09) July 2009, in time for the start of the 2009/10 football season. The primary aim for the first season is to maximise the number of active players (defined as a user who logs in, registers all the required details and begins to make a selection for the weekly games. A secondary aim is to maximise the number of percentage of active players who have become active members, using a referral system which is envisaged to lead to the increase of further user playing weekly.
It is envisaged that the website will expand in the future to meet our specific aims by offering additional competitions and rewards. In the first season, capacity for 100,000 + users would be required (although costing for various thresholds of maximum users are requested).
A significant future aim will be to maximise advertising revenue generated by the website, and to allow for the possibility of co-branding. However, because it is expected that future advertising opportunities are dependent upon heavy traffic, this is not an aim in the first season (some opportunities may be sought throughout the first season, but not at the expense of membership).
This website is to be launched on possible one platform (in two – 4 different locations). Differences will be small, but will affect a number of different areas:
- Different logos, this will change as it will include a moving football cartoon with a video on how to play the game
- Different editorial content (vocabulary and language will change)
- league tables must be separate for each site
We will look to minimise the cost of maintaining the distinct website.
At this stage we need a quotation for building the website (to include full content, logos etc). Web design is required at some stage, so someone offering skills in both of these areas would be a plus.
Ongoing maintenance and disaster recovery would be required; again it would be an advantage if the same company/person would be responsible for this process.
We are looking for:
- Basic cost of the project (to be refined after full brief is received)
- Your proposal for the technical specs involved
- Details of your experience in this type of project
- Details of your knowledge of any fantasy football or real time football games
To save time on both sides, only genuine offers need apply please
Thank you kindly
