Basic project outlines:
Design and building of a web2.0 look & feel internetsite including database, integrated payment system with virtual credits, and working with iDEAL and PayPal.
The internetsite gives people the opportunity to post advertisements.
Reference sites already online with a lot of advertisements(classified ads) are [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view]
Note: these sites have looks out of the Ice Age, this new internetsite has to have a very modern web2.0 fresh look & feel with extended advertising options!
On the new internetsite visitors can browse and respond to all advertisements listed.
Registered users can post advertisements.
Advertisements can be text, image, audio and video.
This news advertising internetsite needs to work with credits which are used by the registered users to place their advertisements.
When the site is launched, users get for instance 100 credits for free.
Posting an advertisement will cost 1 or more credits (for instance: an advertisement with video costs 5 credits, an advertisement with text and photo costs 1 credit)
More about design:
On top there is the log in.
Underneath, very distinct, the homepage features a live search option (reference: see [url removed, login to view]). This search engine needs to be smart, if the user enters the word car chrysler with a certain postal code, the search returns chryslers for sale near the postal code, ascending in distance.
Underneath there also is a listing of the main categories ( to give you an idea, max. 2 or 3 columns with each 20 categories)
At the sides there is a vertical listing of 5 different ads with image. These featured positions can be bought, and if not sold, they have to fill in ad random with advertisements out of the database.
On the homepage there is also an Age-setting(button) that needs to be confirmed for 18 yrs and older, in order to have the site show all adult categories. the features ads then also show ad random or sold advertisements out of the adult categories.
At the bottom another 3 horizontal positons for ads.
Note: all the featured advertising positions need to be able to contain text, image or video depending on advertisements displayed.

Advertisers receive after a certain period an email with the message the ad has expired. They can then choose to prolong (credits) or abandon (ad removed from site)
Site needs to be suitable for multi-langual usage, project finishing requires a Dutch localized internetsite (you get our co-operation for the translation)
Mass-emailing to registered users and/or prospects.

Setting security, uploading and setting server settings
If possible, gather the email addresses of all advertisers currently advertising on [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view], and upload them in this new website database.
The whole site needs to be build on a flexible platform , with an easy to use admin area and maximum possibilities to change design and lay out (templates)
