We are an American founded and managed firm based in West Africa, looking to have our website launched and managed by a third-party that is efficient, value-driven and client-focused.
Context: We are currently using 1and1.com that provides us with a dedicated (but relatively underutilized) server and a few email addresses. We are not getting the value for our monthly fees. Moreover, the site is slow. We are not pleased. We are also not pleased with our website manager. The beta design for our website is done but a few tweaks are required. Search of a homepage photo is required (we have template photo to guide your search). A powerpoint template has been made. Our beta website is relatively light and relatively complete. We envision your work to be an extension of what been done already as such, you are not starting from a blank slate.
Ideally, we would like to login to our company emails (calendars, etc.) on the homepage. You should advise us on the most cost-effective way to do this.
We are open to various options including:
1) terminating our contract with 1and1.com and deferring to you to manage all our needs.
2) letting you manage our 1and1.com contract
3) creating a website that you can upload and then simply handover to our website manager
For the project, you are encouraged to respond by offering your solution to our dilemma with a bid as well as links to your portfolio (preferably websites that indicate your name on it for verification purposes).
Your dollar value will be weighed against the current expenses we bear.

You are free to bid any amount that you see justified. We will simply judge that value with the expenses and opportunity losses we are currently bearing.

Following the success of your work, we expect to give you the first right to review 2 other companies for review and quote.
