Streetread.com - Innovative Financial News Webapp

------------------------

WHAT IS IT?

Streetread.com is an innovative financial news aggregation web-application, launched in June of 2008, aimed to make it extremely simple and fast for investors and others interested in Wall Street and the economy to track all of the news around the web. Streetread aggregates the latest headlines from over 20 of the leading financial sites as well as all of the stocks you wish to follow - all within a fresh, ajax-driven interface, mimicing that of a desktop application. Provided within the interface are intraday stock charts and quotes, as well as extended, embedded financial information.

streetread.com

Streetread Mobile offers all of this functionality and data but inside a mobile-friendly, fast-loading interface (compatible with any internet-enabled device).

DEVELOPMENT/BACKEND

Backend: Drupal 5.x
Frontend: jQuery

Development and design took over 4 months

====================================================

COSTS/REVENUE

The only cost for Streetread is the hosting. Right now it is hosted on a dedicated server which I pay $199/month for. A much cheaper, less powerful solution could be used.

No revenue streams have been established for the site yet to keep it as clean as possible while growing. Anything can be easily implemented. The financial industry is the most lucrative.

====================================================

WHY SELL?

Proposal of a new web-venture which I am pursuing.

====================================================

PRICE

No set price. Accepting offers of $XX,XXX. The price is based on the massive development and design work that was needed to produce the site, the sheer innovativeness and usefulness of the site, the initial solid userbase in the thousands, a pagerank of 4 with strong organic traffic, over 1,000 backlinks, impressive media coverage, and more.
