Inspiration

Looking at our society, with internet and social media all around us, we see that advertising through social media makes so much sense, and more people also want the chance to be an influencer on social media. Every person with a social media presence can achieve it if they wanted to, but the question is how do you reach the employers and how can the companies reach you? market.it will make it very easy for our future clients to apply for a position as a key opinion leader in the industry and for the companies to find their representation.

What it does

market.it lets our influencers to personalise their own profile (target market industries, target locations, along with their fees), our listed companies are also given the freedom to edit their profile (target market industries, company size, and their open position for recruitment). Once our users are set up, they will be able to search for the respective partners and apply for a position in the company or order for a service from the key opinion leaders.

How we built it

To build our website we used node.js for the front end and Firebase database for the back end. We created the pages template and functionality using node.js. Then, for every user, we store their datas on the Firebase database so that it can be accessed for future use (profile page view, search filters, etc). Finally we use heroku to deploy our website in the cloud.

Challenges we ran into

We ran into a problem on getting user's data from the database and how to add the correct information into their profile page. This challenge was faced when logging in as a user and when searching for other people's profile. We conquered this challenge by locating the user's key when logging in and also when searching for others, then we can access their respective datas from the database.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

One of the accomplishments that we're proud of is that we managed to let a user view another user's profile page. This is very important as a company have to be able to see their potential partner's profile and vice versa. By this functionality they can research their potential partner and see their are compatibility.

What we learned

We learned that every obstacle has to be faced from the smallest component and work our way up to the top of the obstacle. Hard work will always be valued as we are proud of how our website turned out even without some functionalities done.

What's next for market.it

market.it will continues its development and we will implement all of the other functionalities. We will also fix our bugs and flaws, in hope that we can deploy our website for real life use in the near future.
