Project Description:

I'm looking for a WordPress expert. I have a client who is setting up a new blog and needs a fresh WP install with some customization. Our aim is to brand the client's self-hosted website and drive maximum relevant traffic to his blog. His existing (old) blog is hosted on - a third-party hosted site.

Scope of Work:
- Fresh WordPress install on new blog
- Install and customize responsive WP theme
- Apply parent company's branded corporate theme (colors, fonts, etc)
- Newsletter subscription, integration with MailChimp
- Disqus comments (or please suggest another good comment plugin),
- Social sharing options (non-floating)
- Related posts engine (for on-site linking to old posts)
- As Seen On feature (when client's guest posts are published in various magazines)
- Options for footer content (e.g. popular posts),
- Migrate all existing content (posts and comments) from existing blog to the new blog
- Perform regular backups for the new blog or suggest auto backup facility
- Keep the site's security up and be on call for any spam or hack attacks or any technical issues that may arise as a result of increased growth and traffic to the site (we can separately negotiate maintenance rates - please do not include these in initial quote)
- Install plugins (e.g. Yoast, Akismet, social sharing, comment management, backup, etc)
- XML sitemap and set up Google Analytics and Webmaster tools

If you're interested, I'll send you a detailed project scope.

I would love it if you could give me a cost and time estimate for this work. If you have any questions (or suggestions) please let me know. We'd like to get started immediately.
