Listing Details

Ever been curious to know what the chances really are that the next big political event will actually happen?
We certainly were, and so we built a one-of-a-kind website which takes the most talked about political events and predicts their outcome.

How can we possibly do this you ask? 

The website is powered by betting odds! Every hour it pulls the latest odds on all the most talked about upcoming political events and then makes them actually understandable, displaying the real-time likelihood, trends over time, and even the popularity of the topic at that moment.

 

How much does it cost to run?

Except for the annual domain renewal and basic website hosting…nothing! Even with hourly calls to a few different services, there is no cost.

 

How much effort is it to maintain it?

Very little. Long gone are the days when we'd be manually uploading the latest predictions to the DB each day (yes we really did this!) Now the website runs by itself without any intervention. When a probability has reached its conclusion, it will display this gracefully. To add a new probability topic, it's just 5-10 mins of work.

 

Do I need to know how to code to maintain it?

Nope! The website runs by itself. To add new probability topics, you'll need to tweak a few lines of code, however full instructions for this will be provided so no prior knowledge is needed.

 

What's included?

 - website

 - .com domain name and email address

 - Google Cloud functions which power the display of content

 - AWS Lambda functions which power the retrieval and processing of data

 - Step-by-step instructions on how to maintain it

 - 1yr of guaranteed email support + 5hrs of guaranteed 1-1 video support if any technical issues/questions

 

If that wasn't enough…

We have also built an automated Twitter/X bot which every hour will look through the latest predictions for the most interesting changes and when it finds something, it will then tweet about it using natural language! Note following recent changes to Twitter/X's API, the bot is currently disabled.

We also have day-by-day data for a whole host of previous political events, which you may well be interested in either presenting to users or using for data analysis.

Website currently uses Google Cloud for data storage and display, AWS for data processing and Betfair's API to request data. The buyer is responsible for ensuring that they comply with every third party's terms of service. We're not lawyers, so the sale includes the code “as is”.

How can the buyer take this project further?

 - Expand beyond politics (no coding changes required to expand to just about any sport you can think of)

 - SEO the sh*t out of it! (something we wish we had focused on)

 - Data analysis & ML (daily data cleanly & consistently stored for a;; probabilities, though note some periods do have missing data)

 - Automated bots (we have built a ready-to-use, logic-based natural language tool which picks out interesting changes and talks about it. This was previously used for tweeting, but could be used for much more

Note: it's your responsibility to ensure any ideas you take from here do not violate any ToS.
