Below is the project outline for a non-profit website I am creating to raise money for cancer research. Because this is a non-profit website my budget isn't huge. However, the winning programmer will get a link on the main page of the website and any press the website gets I will be sure to mention your company as the designer.
[url removed, login to view] Non-Profit Website
The idea of this website is simple. On the homepage there is going to be a button that when clicked will take the user to a random website on the internet (no adult websites). Each click will be worth $.01 (might have to adjust this to $.0095 to cover costs – more on this later), so advertisers will pay $.01 per unique visitor and the minimum order will be $100 (10,000 clicks/unique visitors). Advertisers will also get a link on the homepage (I am going to slice up the logo into probably 12,000 images so each image will be a link with alt text that they define – homepage might become a high PR page, so this could be valuable for advertisers).
The homepage is going to be very simple. A logo at the top of the page, a few links to other pages on the site (About, Sponsors, Advertisers, Press), a button to click on in the middle of the page, a “Money Raised (real-time): $XX,[url removed, login to view]” and some text describing the site.
The logo is going to be sliced up into 12,000 images (3x3 pixels each) and total image size will be 900x120 pixels. When an advertiser orders they will give URL, Description, and Alt Text for image (up to 30 characters). We will use the URL and alt text to make up logo. All images that are not used should be linked to clickforcancer.com. This should be database driven and update automatically.
The button will be the main attraction for the website. When clicked a new window should be opened with a random advertisers website. The money earned should increase by the “Click Rate” I set in the admin panel (something like $.01 or $.0095) and should round to the nearest penny. The click should be deducted from the advertisers page who has been shown.
The “Money Raised (real-time): $[url removed, login to view]” should be right below the button and update each time there is a click. It should be updated by the Click Rate (put a place in the admin for where I can adjust this – “.01” would be one penny). This should round to the nearest cent, so for example, $[url removed, login to view] would be $[url removed, login to view] and $[url removed, login to view] would be $35.07.
We will set this up with Paypal. Advertisements will be sold in blocks of $100/10,000 clicks. Upon successful payment they should be sent to a page that asks them for their URL, Description of Website (max of 2000 characters), and Alt Text (max of 30 characters). This will be entered into the database and be displayed in the admin.
The sponsors page will list all of our sponsors, so this will just be pulled from the database. We will have the URL with the Alt Text being the link text, so for example, This is the Website's Alt Text. Then the description will be listed below that.
This page should have the following information:
Total Money Raised (click rate * number of clicks)
- Total money raised should be able to be manually changed if I am losing money.
This page should include the following information for each advertiser:
Paypal Email Address
URL of Website ([url removed, login to view])
Description of Website (max of 2000 characters)
Alt Text (max of 30 characters)
I should also be able to manually enter all the advertiser information.
The logo with the hyperlinks of advertisers should appear on every page of the website.
