Website Idea, Need a Team

5 posts in this topic

Posted

Hey Everyone;

I have an idea that I want to make come to life, but I don't have the technical knowledge just yet. I know anyone can make a website a decent one nowadays. My idea for website is this. 

I want to make a youtube kind of site, but it only plays audio files. People will create profiles and will be able to post audio files(Music own made, podcast, and own short voice recording). The site will be like a hub for audio recordings. People will be able to come download and listen to stuff offline. I guess there will be a lot of legal things I will need to work out so that people don't post copyrighted material. 

It will be a social network, with sound recordings. People will have their own profiles. Every month I want to change up the theme of the site. There will be beautiful graphics and great sounds. Really attract the creative people out there. 

If anyone wants to work with me please send me a message on here, or discord. I am Hassy.

Sounds a lot like soundcloud. Think about it carefully.

A site like what you want is more difficult to make than you might think, which has a lot to do with that you have to make sure that people won't post copyrighted songs. And like Schwing said, it sounds a lot like Soundcloud.

That is a nice idea, but other than the popular soundcloud and bandcamp, there are thousands of pages similar to that. 

Concerning the legal stuff, not only will you require a layer to set up all the T.O.S , but also a programmer (not a webdeveloper) who knows a lot about audio-processing and filters out copyrighted material, especially if the User is able to download the material. Or you will land in jail because of copyright violations
You will also need an algorithm to compress the audio files and to store them properly. 

Then you need a guy who sets up your social network in terms of database and social network structure (search algorithms etc). 

After that you need graphic designers to create an awesome mock-up of the site and then you need a web-developer that can make the design into a homepage and another one who is responsible for the audio playback and audio player. Don't forget a security specialist or your site will be hacked faster than you counting to three. 

There is a reason Youtube, Facebook, Soundcloud and other big Websites with a huge communities don't change their theme every month and the reason is cost. Fixing mistakes on the site will be quite a lot of work already, changing the theme every month you would need an additional graphic designer and webdeveloper that work full time on it. 

 

I don't want to sound rude, but I don't think you know the scope of such a project. But I would assume that it would be possible with around 100 000$ dollars as a start and then an additional 15 000$ each month for webdevelopers, graphic designers and renting a server. 
If you now want the project to be successful as well, you probably need another 50 000$ for a proper internet marketing campaign. 

And that is just a small estimate.

 

Of course it is popular for one man to do that all by himself, but that would take more than a year, and probably won't be very successfull
