** See attached PDF files for Project Description complete **
I am looking to create a town portal for my community. The main purpose of any portal is a "gathering" place for a community. Here the Puyallup Valley Portal will function the same as most Newspaper/Media web sites and or Community portals. This is a "local" portal. Revenue will be derived from OUTSIDE SALES. I will go to businesses in town and sell them "Featured" advertising spots within the Portal. Internet sales will not be a factor since this is a community portal.
** WHEN BIDDING programmer need to factor this in, this portal will be catering to a population of 68,000 + in my community, not a million people. So as you can see, my revenue factor is limited to only my community, thus the costs for the portal needs to be within the budget, but yet still get the quality and output of content as provided or needed for this project
Programmers/bidders must have prior experience in building a portal, web magazine, city portal or online newspaper site. ** All bidders must show example work ** All bidders must communicate via PMB to discuss the following details-
1) Suggest the CMS to use for this project, in order to achieve the goals of the attached pdf file.
2) Suggest the needed scripts to have the portal function the way I am looking for in my attached pdf file.
3) Suggest the Video/Streaming media player and or scripts for the portal.
4) Suggest hosting options *Note* I have hosting, but programmer should suggest how much Space/Bandwitdth for portal will be needed.
5) Suggest or modify my layout that is in the attached pdf file.
6) Suggest any needed scripts, and add any comments that I may have left out after reading my project description.
7) Suggest and Ideas that you think will help keep the costs down for the project.
