I'm in need of a back end developer to help build a platform for me. I already have a front end UI developer that I have in mind and am wondering what you would charge to develop something like this...
I've attached a PDF of what the product is, and below lists some key elements as well as the PDF to better show you what exactly it is.
Just thinking of the overall goals for the site, It will have a user signup and login flow, as well as a media player to showcase some featured artists on the homepage, it will also have some key elements on the homepage such as featured projects/artists, I think the user flow and UI should be as close to Tunecores as possible but with an even cleaner interface.
The key piece is to get the artists to purchase the most services to grow their brand and help them sell units, so the way I envision it is.. Upon signup and entering in all of their artist info including social urls, media links, contact info and the normal stuff.... it will create an internal press kit that we use when pitching them to media partners etc.
we have a lot of partners in place already such as www.storyamp.com etc, what out goals are is bringing everything to one place for the musician without being the social platform like reverbnation. Their wont be user profiles like that or a myspace music etc.
The key ingredient is to still get them to purchase more products and services from us, marketing etc
The normal creation process is normal info, MP3 format with artwork 1600x1600 pxls.
The tunecore signup flow screenshots are attached for your convenience,
One service that will be of value will be "Vevo Channels" vevo videos will be uploaded and automatically fwd to their cloud server in the following format ..
1. Upload in an HD version of the video, either 1280x720 or 1920x1080?
VEVO requires no in-video promotional exposure for artists, labels, companies, etc.
A hi-res artist photo, at least 800x800 in size, with no text or graphics in it.
Obviously I know there isnt a logical solution to the in video promo so it will have to be manually filtered but that's ok.
All of the content from each artist should be sent to a database that our internal project managers will handle, and categorized by date and artist name that we have access too.
The video will need to be sent to us first before a project manager uploads it to vevo's cloud for approval so we'll need some sort of system for that, as far as the audio our internal project managers will manually submit it to all platforms i.e. iTunes, Amazon, Beatport etc
I hope this answers your questions and better explains exactly what we need and hope to hear from you soon so we can get a better idea what this would cost, by all means if you have some templates of some sort that can be used so it saves time and costs then we're open to that. I haven't dev a platform of my own before so i'm not sure what they cost but we are open to figuring it out and have financial backing as well.
Please get back to me with a ROUGH estimate when you have a second,
Skills: pdf, myspace, marketing, video, graphics, amazon
