I have three websites, the functions of which I want to merge to create one main site.
The first site is a simple landing page where people sign up and it includes around 5 - 7 other basic single pages (i.e. a single video or text with a payment button).
The second site is my social network at .ning (I have around 80 members). Ning is glitchy and clunky-looking, so I want my own, stand-alone, mobile-friendly social network hosted on my own server. I know there are good scripts that can be implemented for this purpose. It would need to have the same functionality as my current .ning site including:
- the ability for members to upload videos
- use an instant messenger feature (built into mobile app for android and ios)
- create their profiles
- allow me to collect data from each new sign-up that is stored in a database such as name, cell number, etc.,
- include various main tabs such as news (I would want my news curation site or something similar embedded. I enter a keyword and it goes out to scrape the web for articles, videos etc.)
- library (I have uploaded pdf's that members can read)
- the study (I have uploaded ebooks in flash format. Each book has a password and when entered, it can be flipped to read online like a regular book).
These features would need to be easily editable or changed by me and I would need the ability to add new features/tabs/pages also. I also need the ability to create paywalls for 'paid content only' pages. When a person signs up initially, their data would be collected in the database and they would have immediate access to the site based on their level of membership. When a person decides to purchase 'paid only content', the database would indicate that also. When a person cancels their recurring membership through PayPal, the site would recognize it and cancel their membership accordingly on the next payment due-date.
The third is a website that collects the data for each person that signs up for the social network or makes a purchase (both through PayPal), from another website I have. That site also enables me to send individual or group text messages to my list (via my Twilio account), look up sales and member data and it keeps track of individual sales and the various products sold. It also allows me to upload my PayPal payment code and item description when I add a new eBook to the database and sends a secure download link to customers immediately upon purchase, so they can download their eBook automatically. it also indicates if an ebook has been downloaded. It also allows me to do this manually by entering their email address and book title and lets me choose how many download links I send.
These are the three sites I would like merged/created into one streamlined site. I would also like the programmer who gets the job to stick around to be my 'go-to' person when I need to troubleshoot, edit, change or add something to the site. Please keep in mind, the content for two of the sites already exists. It just needs to be cleaned up and a new and cleaner template used. The script for the social network itself would need to be enabled for 'paid' memberships, as the memberships are on a paid basis, and it would need to have these other features added on the back-end for admin use only. You'll probably need knowledge of html and php. Questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks.
