I'm looking for a few people... 2, maybe 3... To put together a website with Drupal and needed modules to get a groupbuy kinda site going. My idea differs a bit from the original groupbuy approach so for obvious reasons I'm not going to post full details here.
What I'm looking for is customized design and programming and would then reward the team in the future success of the website. My forte is selling and sourcing, marketing both online as well as offline so I'm sure we can get this baby going once we have the functionalities we need. Viral and affiliate marketing are my specialties and needless to say that groupbuying is just made for that.
It would be a platform with global potential over every deal which makes it unique and easy to grow. Once global we localize bit by bit to milk the cow we have grown.
I'm also looking to support the whole drupal community for making all this possible by sponsorships coming from profits made over this project. Basicly I would split 70/30 where the 30 is split into 20 to the team and 10 to supporting the drupal community hoping it will be used make this platform even better. Of which I'm pretty sure that this will happen. The above assumes I would work with 2 people, 10% each.. One good programmer and one good customizer would do the job I think. The 70 for me is obviously for my personal gain but actually goes into the company/project and will be heavily reinvested in sales, marketing and other reinvestments enabling growth. I'm not greedy, I just need a team on board and together we can make this work and make money fast. Easy? There is no such thing as easy money, but if we have a motivated team, spirit and willingness combined with a good idea this has great potential.
Time to market target: 1 month.
First profits target: Almost immediatelly as during the month of preparation marketing will be up and running. That will be my job and some others that will join the global sales, marketing and sourcing team which is already being formed as we speak.
Your programming work you can keep in your own ownership and moneytize it... Or share it with the community, as you wish. I would prefer sharing but it is entirely up to you. Except for one module that creates the unique selling point for our project. That one module makes us different and gives us the competitive advantage over all the other sites out there so we don't want that out there for grabs.
if anybody interested contact me and let me have your contact details. Preferably SKYPE as that works well for global communication in group meetings and stuff.
Looking forward to hear from a few of you.
