Project Description:

Looking for something that fits the style if the L.A. high end building market.

Update....

I am a contractor and I would like to have a site that shows my work and attracts customers that would like to have work done on their homes or builders that are looking for tile contractors to assist in their projects.

The web.com site is horrible, they simply entered some stock photos and text to their template. the 800 number is theirs and even the text is just something they created for me to go in and rewrite. The site is lordtile.com I have 3 days to cancel at no cost and I think thats what I will do. I would like some advise on where to host and best optimize a completely new site.

I am not educated on website's. I need someone that can handle this project now and into the future. In the large Los Angeles market I will need a site the stands out ant is built to draw a lot of traffic their is a lot of competition here in my field. I am new to the market and will rely on the internet for much of my new business. Making this project extremely important to my business, I hope to direct new clients here and gain their business. Many of the new clients will choose to use me at a glance of what they see here.

My basic opinion about the website i feel will work i is cleen and elegant (less is more)
Including some of the following
-I have some text I have put together.
- some examples of some sites i like.
-Photos work well for tile. Possibly organized in galleries of 1)Bathrooms 20Kitchens 3) Backslashes 4) fireplaces... ETC.
( I do have some professional photos of my work)
-some published articles that feature projects that I worked on.
-I would like a site that can be update with current projects.
-Request for bid page / contacts form block Mayby a button on each page that says FREE ESTIMATE
Customer section- with login assess? that allows each customer to view the progress of their job with photos and percentage of completion. The ability to make a payment.
-Newsletter- create an engaging news letter that has some current design trends and featured businesses.
-I may want to put together packages including tile that the customer can click to buy.

-Links to tile manufactures with technical information

These are some of the ideas to date.

My goals today are as follows...
First i need to budget the large package optimization and growth over time ( monthly updates)
Secondly, work on brand and logo ( i do have a very basic logo now, but am open to new ideas)
Finally, build site.

Can you address for me before we get started.
1) basic site expectations
2) Best options for hosting and optimization
3) growth of the site and maintenance
4) How to best communicate with you to develop ideas for a marketing plan and the total branding of my company. One of my concerns is that i will need a more local designer to work with to develop a team building environment for my marketing.

I look forward to your response.
