New Releases Website

New Releases Website

Please let us know how much it would cost to put this site together. Also let us know anything that can’t be done for whatever reason.

We’re looking to have a New release website built. One that would list all new release dates for Blu-Rays, DVDs, Books, CDs and MP3s, Video Games, Comic Books and Just Added. The info for the release dates will be collected via Amazon.com’s API or Amazon’s Affiliate program using Amazon Affiliate links (CDs and MP3 section should have links to both CD version and MP3 version). The Comic Books info will come from http://www.tfaw.com Affiliate program. We also want the ability to add titles not listed at Amazon to the list.
The site will also let people add their favorite artists, actors, directors, movies, Video games and so on to a list. When there is a release date announced for something on their list they will get an e-mail with a link to the release coming out using my Amazon Affiliate link to the title. They should also be able to get a RSS feed for this. (See Account below for more info).
Each week on Sunday the front page list will change to the next week’s listing. The previous list would go into an archive section. The list will also have an archive of the previous week’s listing. This should be done automatically. There should also be a section for future release dates. When Amazon adds new titles to their list of release dates it should be added to our list automatically. List should update at least twice a day but I’m open to every hour.
All titles add that day should be added to the just added section.

Design
The site should have a minimalist design and be very user friendly. I want NO FLASH used.
I know WordPress so if this can be done in that great if not I’m open to anything that’s easy to use. We will also need a logo.

Front Page
Tabs or links on the top of the page for each category
DVDs, Blu-Rays, Books, CDs and MP3s, Video Games, Comic Books and Just Added (the Just Added tab will list every new title added from the last 7 days)
Each tab or link will have a list of all the new releases in that section for that week, divided in subsections. (Subsections names listed under Categories below)
We also want to have a pick of the week with Movie, Music, TV Shows, Comedy, Video Games and Books. We need to be able to change the pick of the week on our own. This will also be on the front page. Maybe it can look some like the titles list under Featured products at http://www.compactdiscount.com.

Under each tab Section
Listed at the very top of each section will be the top new releases of the week. Pictures of each item should be there when available (Pictures not 100% needed). At the bottom of each release date list should be a link to the following week’s releases continuing until the very last date that is on Amazons release schedule. Catalog of release dates should be listed in something like a calendar with dates with a link to click on to get the list for that date.

Twitter
Every time a title gets added to the list it sends out a tweet automatically with an Amazon Affiliate link. (Not 100% needed)

Account:
Sign up for an account that does the following:
If someone signs into their account they can list all their favorite artists, actors, directors, movies, Video games and so on. When there is a release date announced for something on their list they will get an e-mail with a link to the release coming out using my Amazon Affiliate link to the title. They should also be able to get an RSS feed for this list also. Comic books would have the tfaw.com Affiliate program link. This should be done automatically.

If someone has an account they should be able to remove any categories that do not interest them. This should be a simple process: something like clicking an X in the top right corner to remove the category. See http://www.dailyrotation.com/ for what we’re looking for.
If possible, users should be able to prioritize sections due to interest level.
Front page should explain the benefits of opening an account. A link on the front page called “Benefits of opening an account”. I could make a video explaining the benefits after the site is made and this would go in this link it would be an embed video.

We also need some when for people to recover passwords they forgot via e-mail.

Each week on Sunday the front page list will change to the next week’s listing. The previous list would go into an archive section. The list will also have an archive of the previous week’s listing. This should be done automatically. There should also be a section for future release dates. When Amazon adds new titles to their list of release dates it should be added to our list automatically. List should update at least twice a day but I’m open to every hour.
