Require those who have experience in dating sites (please advise of url)


We need you to provide 3 online dating social networking sites that respectively address singles within specific theatres, such as for exclusives, same sex individuals, general public and for the erotically inclined.

Each of these websites, addressing very diversified markets, will need to be designed to appeal to those markets. They will share the same common underlying platform in terms of functionality, but will each be self-contained, completely separate websites providing travel packages, events, and giving paid members the peace of mind that all paid members are screened for fraud for protection purposes.

The sites will allow online credit card transactions through PayPal for membership signups, event and travel bookings.

3 Proposed Solution

3.1 Solution Overview

Each site will allow members to sign up for free, chat, email and interact for free, however, free members cannot see or interact with subscribed (paying) members. Free members will pay a defined monthly fee which will entitle them to the Membership area where benefits include seeing and interacting with all members, participating in singles events such as evenings and group travel deals, as well as the peace of mind that all paying members are screened through a 3rd party ID Verification technology

A key niche feature is the travel promotions. For each site, we would like to pre-book travel packages and advertise them on the paid members area, whereby these members can opt in on the travel package and paying online to attend such events. There is no direct link/integration to any travel systems. We will manually make these bookings with various providers, and advertise them on one of the 3 relevant websites, where members opt in and pay. They can invite their friends on the site, members and non-members, but non-members would first need to pay for a full membership to be entitled to the travel offer.

The dating section of each site must provide the general profile metadata information such as:

• Name, Surname

• Age

• Build, Height

• Date of Birth

• Occupation

• Favourite SA holiday destination

• Interested in Group Singles Travel

• Believes in Star Sign Matching

• Interested in Singles Group Nights

Website Design Proposal

• Upload 2x pics

• Sex

• Indicate Vetted Member – i.e. can invite to travel and singles nights

• Province

• Zip Code

The search facility allows members to search for other members, however, free membership members cannot see paid membership members. Furthermore, free members are not entitled to travel and single nights offers/promotions whereas paid members have access to all these benefits as well as peace of mind with the screening feature.

The payment process will use PayPal, thus eliminating the burden of a merchant account with a bank and PayPal simply takes a percentage of every transaction for service fees. The user pays online, undergoes an automated fraud check through [url removed, login to view], and upon success the member is approved immediately. Upon failure, the user is denied the membership and potentially refunded or the fraud case alerted for further investigation and possible banning from the site.

The Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy and Terms of Use should cover and protect the business and its operations from all possible events and loopholes.

Paid members can at any time invite a free member to subscribe – whether it be from a connection or a search.

For the Travel feature, we will pre-arrange trips and advertise them on the sites accordingly. Members can then see the available slots and click to add themselves where they must pay 50% to secure their spot. Members can view who is going and communicate with the other travellers to the destination. The final 50% must be paid within a specified window period to confirm the booking. Itinerary if necessary will be sent manually from Paul to the members.

Paid members can also create their own trips by selecting a pre-loaded package, and having exclusivity to inviting their own attendees. Policies would need to be in place to ensure the slots are filled timeously in order not to forfeit the package entirely. In this case as well, the organiser can search for other members, add them to the trip and pay for them.

Website Design Proposal

The Event Nights work the same as the travel, in that Events are pre-loaded by us and members can pay and add themselves to events or alternatively take ownership of an event and invite and pay for other members or have the other members pay for themselves. Again, this is only open to paid members.

Finally, a reporting tool must be built to allow analytics across all five websites to track trends. Each site will have its own analytics and reporting, but there needs to be a unified reporting feature to report across all sites.

The 3 domains for the 3 websites will be (in order of website development priority):

1. www.

2. www.

3. www.
