I want to create a social networking website for unsigned musicians and their fans. The difference with other music sites is that we offer cash prizes for the top songs in the weekly music charts (based on genre). Artists need to pay a subscription fee or be sponsored by fans (for the subscription fee) in order to compete for the cash prize. As an example subscription fee is $50 per year if the artist pay for the subscription themselves. However, if the artist wants to be sponsored there are 5 shares of $10 each (fans and other other artists can purchase these shares).
To get a better understanding, check out [url removed, login to view] and read about how their program works. However, for my site, the sponsors are helping the artist to qualify to compete for cash prizes by paying for their subscription fee.
Features will include (use [url removed, login to view] , [url removed, login to view] , [url removed, login to view] as reference):-
Artist profile (tab format preferred as in [url removed, login to view])
Fan profile (tab format preferred as in [url removed, login to view])
Weekly Music Charts – with filter for different genres (cash prizes for top songs)
Blog (within artist and fan profile)
Store (for physical items – cds, t-shirts and other merchandise via paypal – paid directly to artists)
Digital music sale (on artist profile page only – all songs are sold via paypal – paid to us -we will distribute to artist when a certain amount is collected)
5 key features above are (note: advertising revenue generated on the website is split between self-subscribed artist (33%), sponsors (33%) and the website owner (33%)).
An Artist who pay his own subscription will receive 90% of their digital music sale (10% kept by web owner), 100% of their store merchandise sale and a share of the 33% advertising revenue – divided among all self subscribed artist.
An Artist who is fully sponsored (ie eligible to compete for weekly cash prize) will receive 80% of their digital music sale (balance 10% to sponsors and 10% to website owner) and 100% of the store merchandise sale
When an artist or fan sponsor an artist(s), the sponsor will receive 10% of the sponsored artist's digital music sale and a share of the 33% advertising revenue – divided among all sponsors
Artist or fan (call them 'A') can refer friends (call them 'B')to join the website. If 'B' join and later on sponsors an artist, 'A' will receive 25% of the sponsorship fee. For example 'B' sponsor 1 share in 1 artist (ie $10), then 'A' will receive $2.50 (when the artist is fully subscribed)
Artist or fan can also refer other artist to join the website. Whether the artist self subscribe or is sponsored, the referrer will receive a 25% of the subscription fee (ie $12.50) when the artist is fully subscribed.
I need a system to keep track of these activities and be able to show in the artist and fans control panel.
Only bid if you have created similar tracking system or website and have examples. Please no simple comments like 'I can do it'. Please provide a time frame (maximum is 1 month)and a maximum estimate.
