The New Economy is a program associated with the non-profit organization "The Foundation for Global Progress and Economic Freedom". The mission of the Foundation is: "Connecting Technology and Resources to Maximize Global Utility."
This request is to further develop online presence for TheNewEconomy.org. The current site was quickly set up as an online web presence using WP. We would like to make it more professional in appearance and an improved, more responsive UX in both web and mobile.
Hope to clarify question:
Below, sections of requirements are outlined.
However, these are all under the main goal of "Maximizing the value of web presence for The Foundation".
#1 Requirement: Maximize the value of the web-presence!
Be creative, have fun!
Let's be Agile. Iterate.
I'll be available to answer questions and help guide if anyone moves in the wrong direction.
As for the items below- please take them into consideration, but more importantly, do what you think will make your entry win the contest!
-Community Focus & Communication
Requirements: Forum & Community features. Imagine there are a set of common requirements, but the better the community experience the better. ( e.g. features of, or similar to bbPress & BuddyPress ; If familiar and believe it would best fit the requirements, these would be fine- again use your own discretion on what could meet this requirement the best. )
Requirements: Simple, elegant, responsive contact form to quickly provide feedback to the site admin email.
Optional Requirements: Seeding the forum and/or blog with content.
Requirements: Integrate-able with other sites/communities (Services, APIs ?) from "The Foundation Ecosystem". The minimum would be a page with the ability to add links to other sites associated with The Foundation. Provide guidance or a different approach here if a another method for ecosystem creation / integration would be appropriate.
Monetization should be a minimal focus of the site, however a key component of ensuring the project stays funded.
Requirements: the ability for users to donate to The Foundation, and/or directly towards current or future related projects. I see this as a data schema with parent-child hierarchy of related projects of which Admins can add and control. The donations should be able to integrate with sites' community functions, such as a community status, although the donation function should also be able to be done anonymously should the user choose.
Requirements: Accept traditional payment methods as well as Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies as feasible).
Requirements: Responsive FAQ or Q&A.
Requirements: Ability for quick video posting by assignable role(s), through youtube or uploaded directly.
Requirements: Light learning management functionality - potentially a wiki.
Requirements: Page for Video Feed (Youtube feed based on a search parameter), the ability to choose whether to approve or reject each new entry from the feed.
Requirements: Maximizing SEO, structured for current and future content.
Requirements: Social media presence optimization
Requirements: Heavy focus on community/audience attraction and retention.
We anticipate that some "Creative" additions may be helpful in selection.
Feel free to add additional functions or features that you feel may add value to the site if you feel it may add to your entry.
We need to retain ownership of all assets, code, and creatives developed and/or used (such as full access to any licensing, plugins, etc.) for the creation, design, etc. related to the project. If there are any restrictions to this, please state so in your entry.
Thank you! We look forward to your entry!
