You have chosen to sponsor your bid up to a maximum amount of .
I need a 15-20 page Wordpress site (using a premium Theme) for my small business, almost all pages will have the same Header & Footer.
Please base your quote on using Wordpress as the CMS with Woothemes “Canvas” theme or an alternative suitable Premium Theme .
If you prefer to use another type of CMS (eg Joomla etc) this is OK if it will be more cost-effective. However the CMS must be a widely available and well-known quality CMS.
The intent behind specifying a widely used CMS (eg WordPress) and a Premium theme is to better ensure overall SEO optimisation, a professional look/feel, future easy upgrades, as well getting access to the vast array of plugins & enhancements available.
As part of your quote include integration of any best-practice plugins– eg “WordPress SEO by Yoast”.
All elements of the new site (eg Meta Elements , Title Elements, CSS, Navigation, Form & Data Table Designs etc) must be configured to current best-practice and for best SEO as well as fast load times Do not include any flash, and no "sound/noise".
The site is to be "Responsive" Web Design (RWD) type for easy reading on full range of different devices.
Site should also be compatible with all main browsers.
RWD & SEO etc becomes easier to achieve if you base your quote Wordpress/Joomla & a suitable premium theme.
Following are some sample sites (as a guide for the overall design for this new site) and I will prior to commencement also provide a functional design specification (eg content copy, pages, menu names, structure, colour scheme, etc), company logo, favicon. I will purchase and provide to you of any new low-cost stock photos or stock graphics that you may require for the site.
The following sample sites (from similar businesses) – show the structure/function/operation of what I am trying to achieve with the new site:-
In order of “design” preference:-
http://www.procureinc.com/ (this is my most preferred type of site design in terms of functionality - but my site will have far fewer pages & fewer internal links).
http://cpluselectronics.com/ (this site uses the ICS Plug-In – mentioned below). (Type the sample part number “atmega32” into the “Part Number Search” box and see how it works.)
http://www.icdigitalelectronics.com/ (this site uses the ICS Plug-In – mentioned below). (Type the sample part number “atmega32” into the “Product Search” box and see how it works.)
The following site should be used as a guide to the preferred Style/Colour-Scheme/Feel/Look of the new site:-
http://consultvistra.com/ (This is my most preferred site in relation to “style” / css / colour scheme – which we should copy for my new site as it matches our new logo colours).
All photos/graphics/banners/footers/widgets you select for the site must be approved and need to conform to this selected colour scheme.
NOTE: I do not simply want to “copy” any one of the above sites – we only using them for inspiration and combine their different features together to form a new & unique site.
Please also include for the integration of the “ICS Storefront Plug-In” – this is a subscription based component data-base & search engine (Plug-In) which can be placed on any site and it allows customers to “Search” for “part numbers” that they wish to purchase and generates a search results page which it links to a “Request For Quote” cart. All the code etc is provided by the company ICS for this “ICS Storefront” plugin.
The following site provides simple information on the plug-in: http://www.icsource.com/index.aspx?vw=wdl
Note – the ICS storefront Plug-In will be provided free to you – the web designer only needs to integrate it into the new site. It will save quite a lot of design work - as it generates the search page, enquiries, the RFQ Cart etc.
Please specify in your quote the time period that you will require (after award of the job) to complete the new site.
I look forward to receiving your bids.
