I need someone with Wordpress / Forum experience to implement & design my site catering to IT professionals. This individual should be able to design this site with little to no guidance from me. I expect your experience and expertise to develop the sites look and feel.
The theme that's already installed has many features. You need to decide how to implement them to create a standout / functional / well flowing site.
Theme home page
Old Site (EMP = Easy Member Pro)
The old site is build on the software package EMP Pro (Script). Users are maintained within this script so members can access protected pages that are linked to a Amazon S3 repository rendering VIDEO training tutorials.
An account will be generated for you into this site.
New Site (Wordpress with EMP plug-in) = integrates EMP accounts for the forum access
The New Site is built on Wordpress / with FORUM / with EMP Forum Plug-in was just installed last night. IM relying on your expertise to strategically design this site from start to finish to bring a IT Professional tone.
If there are wordpress plug-in's you feel are mandatory, please relay that information to me before the installation.
FTP access will not be granted. I will gladly upload any files you feel need changed.
Use as a reference or idea generation.
I need someone to visually design the site by...
* Strategically copying & pasting site text from old site to new site pages (Really not much text)
* Strategically create new pages. (A Video Producers, privacy, About Us, Legal, Contacts page)
(Create MOCK content for these pages)
(See old site, See Competitors)
(Code to a CONTACT form will be provided as work begins.)
* Strategically insert site related images through out the new site to enhance the sites visual appearance.
(You will have to obtain these images)
(Images of technology and or HAPPY IT professionals, NO MS LOGOS or PRODUCT specific LOGO's are to be used)
* Create a site logo with name and strategically place through out the site.
* Strategically place the Forum / with MOCK posts.
(You tell me where FORUM POST should go?) (Home page?, Sidebar links to other pages?)
(Please Advise and make recommendations)
*All pages should be SEO optimized with keywords
* The HOME page AT the very bottom should contain a Google AD box (this code will be provided later)
* A Sidebar should be created so all pages show a MOCK sponsored image / link.
* The HOME page will have some images, some text, maybe some posts. I have some html code / dropdown boxes that provide the users with navigational links to video's. (Please see attachment)
* Example pages in the New site have been imported. Please remove all unneeded pages and images.
