I have a client that is looking to have a new site designed which will be similar in nature to the content on something like www.50connect.co.uk.
It is basically a portal with lots of news, competitions, special offers, members area etc....
The site will be primarily to market affiliate adverts which we will setup on the site from Commission Junction, Affiliate Window and other affiliate companies. There will also be special offers intermingled with the news content.
The news content will need to be completely automated and gathered from a number of sources on the net via RSS feeds, scraping (this will need to be done by you) and other feeds we can get.
Features the site will also include at a later stage are a forum and possible a dating style site but these can be added or built later once the site is launched.
We would like bidders to let us know what platform they propose to build the site with or whether they would create it bespoke from scratch.
We would also like to know what features are available on the platform you are recommending to use.
Also we need to know timescales for launch.
