Please take a careful look at [url removed, login to view] website. We are in the process of setting up a new website in the UK which allows estate agents and private individuals to advertise their property on a \"pay-as-you-go\" basis. We need a clone of rightmove website but with a different skin (and a few changes) - this includes FULL CORPORATE BRANDING AND LOGO DESIGN, CODING AND SEO, A COMPLETE COPY OF THE SEARCH FUNCTION, CREDIT CARD PAYMENT FACILITY AND EVERY OTHER FRONT AND BACK OF HOUSE FUNCTIONS INCLUDING RIGHTMOVEPLUS ITS CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR LANDLORDS TO LIST PROPERTY
Please bear in mind a couple of important things about rightmove website:
1. Rightmove is the largest and most popular property website in the UK, and also the 6th most popular website in the UK. You will see just from the website that their corporate branding is incredibly strong - in terms of branding we will need something that can match if not exceed that, otherwise there will be no point in continuing this project as we have failed before we have even started and i will need to know NOW before i spend any money unnecessarily! Please note I will be checking your work for credibility before we commit!!
2. The success of [url removed, login to view] is down to 3 fundamental things:
A)it's ease of use,
B) properties are advertised in \"real time\" i.e. properties have not been left on the website even when they have already been taken,
C) their search facility.
Firstly, we must keep the simplicity of the website.
Secondly we must have a process where people can upload photos, descriptions, floor plans, and status of the sale themselves by a simple online submission form which gets sent for company approval before being uploaded onto the website. There must be an option where if the advertisers wants to cease advertising they just simply click on a box on the form, press sumbit and the property is automatically taken off the website.
Thirdly, the search facility - this is the most important part of the website. Please take a careful inspection of the search facility - you must be able to replicate this search facility. The difference between rightmove website all a million other websites is that this search facility allows you to expand your search by X miles beyond your search area. You simply tap in your postcode (i.e. zip code), and chose whether you want to remain in this area or expand it by 1 mile radius, 3 mile radius and so on... Please do not bid if you cannot replicate this search function as we must have this search function in order to compete with rightmove. I will need to know how you will be building this search facility so included with your bid, please state how this will be done.
In addition to the above requirements, we must a credit card payment facility. As this is a \"pay-as-you-go-website\" where advertisers pay for each day the property is advertised as opposed to a flat fee for a fixed period of time, the payment facility must allow the company to collect the card details and deduct the correct fee at the end when the property is removed from the website (i.e. 7 days @ 10p/day = 70p deducted from card).
Please read and re-read the above carefully. If your bid is successful please bear in mind that I will be paying in installments and after each stage the project is completed (e.g. 1000$ over 10 days = 100$ per day). If you produce good work, there will be plenty of projects to come as I am in the process of setting up a minimum of 10 companies. Please bear in mind that I am after QUALITY of work, as this is going to be a professional website that will be competing with the biggest property website in the UK, I therefore require people who are conscientius and not just out to make a quick buck. Money is no object if you are good!!! GOOD LUCK!!
PS - THE WEBSITE MUST BE CAPABLE OF STORING A MINIMUM OF 1 MILLION PROPERTY PROFILES, PLUS PICTURES, FLOOR PLANS ETC.
PLEASE WHEN SUBMITTING YOUR BID INCLUDE A DESCRIPTION OF HOW YOU WILL UNDERTAKE THE BUILDING THE SEARCH FACILITY. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THE WEBISTE & I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY BIDS FROM ANYONE WHO CANNOT CONVINCE ME THEY WILL BE ABLE TO BUILD THIS.
DO NOT send me a PM which is a generic message stipulating what your company does and can offer me etc... What we require is someone who has READ the brief PROPERLY and UNDERSTANDS the requirements of the website and most importantly can tell us HOW you are going to proceed with the design and construction of the search facility!!! Lack of understanding means we will have problems before we have even started!!! HAPPY BIDDING!!
