Agriya Launches Nocturnal
Continuing the trend of releasing local and hyper-local based products such as GroupDeal, Nabit and Exposure, Agriya is releasing a brand new product which focuses on the nightlife and entertainment scene of individual towns and cities. Called Nocturnal, it will enable you to run a complete entertainment and nightlife portal with all the advanced features you need like event management, social networking, photo galleries, blogs and town and city based venues.
The script is based upon locations, so you first need to decide what areas you are going to cover – we suggest keeping it very tight and local to start off with before branching out to every city in America! Your first time visitors will be asked which town or city they want to find the latest entertainment and events in and they will be taken to the site which will only show information from the selected location.
Once the visitor has told the script which location they want information from, they can find all the local venues which are holding events, get photos, videos, the latest news and chat with others on the integrated forum.
Your users will even be able to plan their own events directly from your site, inviting their friends to sign up which helps to grow your site virally and without any effort on your behalf!
The script also has advanced social networking features and allows members to sign up, create a profile, upload pictures and videos, add friends, import friends from Gmail, Facebook and other large websites and keep track of all the events that they plan to attend.
You can charge the venue owners a monthly subscription to be listed and featured on your site and to promote events that are taking place. Since this is a local events based script you can also sell ultra-targeted adverts which promote events and entertainment venues in the local area.
Nocturnal is built on the CakePHP framework which is fully documented and uses an MVC architecture which makes it very easy for you to customize and modify to your needs. You can translate the script in to any language using the built in Google Translator API and manage all the language files from the admin area.
The Nocturnal software is ready to test drive today and you can find out more information by filling out the form on the official Nocturnal page here.
