Project Description

**_Project - Website Design for Londonmotorhomes.com_**

**1. Introduction & Current Situation:** We have just set up the company starting out as a small-scale high quality motorhome rental company operating from 2 sites just outside of London. Our first motorhome arrives in March 2013. Below is a link to our new van.

<[url removed, login to view]>

Depending on rental success we will then look to expand with a new motorhome each year and changing the motorhomes over every 3 years.

Unlike many of the Motorhome rental businesses that are already operating we are aiming to rent a better quality (luxury) motorhome with a bespoke service. Similar to renting an Audi/BMW/Merc as your hire car rather than a Ford/Vauxhall.

**Please provide a quote for the Design Brief & Main Tasks as outlined below:**

* **Design an impressive high quality fully functioning website which once complete can be handed over to us as the customer to run. **

* **Design and set up an equally high quality Facebook.**

* **Be available to provide a further period of consultation for upto 6 months should we have any snags with the sites.**

**In order to maximize rental business for our motorhome company.**

**2. Aim: "**We want people to find our motorhomes by searching the web. The site will provide detailed information about our motorhomes, check availability, provide a quote, and enable visitors to confirm their booking online.

**3. Timeframe: **

* Initial project quotes to be back with us by the **end of 30th November.**

* **Website and facebook projects complete by end of December. **

## Deliverables

**_Project - Website Design for Londonmotorhomes.com_**

**1. Introduction & Current Situation:** We have just set up the company starting out as a small-scale high quality motorhome rental company operating from 2 sites just outside of London. Our first motorhome arrives in March 2013 with new 2013 plates. Below is a link to our new van.

Depending on rental success we will then look to expand buying a new motorhome each year and changing the motorhomes over every 3 years.

Unlike many of the Motorhome/Campervan rental businesses that are already operating we are aiming to rent a better quality (luxury) motorhome with a bespoke service. Similar to renting an Audi/BMW/Merc as your hire car rather than a Ford/Vauxhall.

**2. Contact Details:** Nick Barton, <nick_barton@[url removed, login to view]>. Based between Suffolk and Surrey in the United Kingdom. [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] & [url removed, login to view] are all part of the Peaslake Trading Ltd.

**3. Aim: "**We want people to find our motorhomes by searching the web. The site will provide detailed information about our motorhomes, check availability, provide a quote, and enable visitors to confirm their booking online.

**4. Timeframe: **

* Initially we are looking for initial project quotes to be back with us by the **end of 30th November.**

* **Website and facebook projects complete by end of December.** I recognize that this is fairly tight. If necessary we can extend this until the end of January but would like to have the site up and running for a period to guarantee bookings before the motorhome arrives.

**5. Domain Names:** We have purchased the following 3 domain names to run our business from. [[url removed, login to view]][1], [[url removed, login to view]][2], [[url removed, login to view]][3]**. ** However we would like all of the domain names to divert to the **[[url removed, login to view]][1]** site.

**6.** **Web Design and Support:** We would like to outsource the initial design of the website but then want to be able to run the website ourselves, posting updates, fresh images, offers etc.

* **We would like to see 5 different suggestions for the logo and site design so we can choose the best. This should be the first thing done.**

* Web design needs to use one of the common editing software programs that it is easy to use with readily available support online about the editing software. I have been recommended that WordPress is probably the most widely used software.

* Clearly the website will then set the standard as to what we are going to use for our logo and template for leaflets, flyers etc.

* Regarding style it needs to try and hit **luxury, adventure, modern, bespoke.**

* The site must comply with the standards of accessibility contained in W3C WAI (World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative) level A Guidelines and have the usual code specifications.

* Must also include relevant accessibility features.

* The site must work effectively on mobile phones and tablet devices using a specific CSS stylesheet if required.

**7.** **Target Audience:** The main audience are likely to be families (from all locations) who are looking for an adventure and slightly different holiday. In addition we would like to target the following groups:

* Couples

* Elderly couples who want to travel, holiday and explore in their own luxury.

* Families looking for a different sort of holiday including going: Skiing, exploring Europe and England, beach holidays, walking and adventure.

* Visitors to England flying into any of the London airports. Appealing to the US and European market.

* Couples and families within 2 hrs of London area.

* Short term accommodation for couples doing a housebuild/renovation.

**8. Search Engine Optimization and Analytics:** The website should be accessible to search engine spiders and be coded with good on-page search engine optimization. Try and maximize the SEO to allow any motorhome/high quality campervans, luxury motorhomes requests to hit our website.

* In addition it must have some sort of analytic code into the website which will identify, what search words brought them to our site, how long they spent there etc.

* Similar to point 5 above this also needs to use simple software for us to monitor. I have heard that Google Analytics is one option but happy to take advice.

**9.** **Website Content and Page Structure: ** The website will incorporate all of the usual media/text that you would expect from a quality rental website. Similar to renting a luxury holiday home, motorhome or yacht charter with the same functionality. Thus it should include photos, potentially a 3d virtual tour of the motorhome, video clips (embedded youtube clips), possibly a pdf for the terms and conditions as well as locations maps. It should also have a simple enough front page for faster upload times.

Crucial to the site will be an online quote generator and payment system as well as feeds built into the site for feedback from the usual social media streams. As part of our advertising we are likely to offer a money back system if people rate / like our site on facebook. Regarding refreshing the site we are only likely to update the site on a monthly basis with photos, offers etc.

We will be able to provide all of the text data for each of the pages. **I am not sure that we need all of the pages below and we are happy to take advice as to what is a more functional website.**

**a. Home page - Must include:**

? An instant quote and availability checker tool on one side of the page.

? Sharing options to Facebook, Twitter,

? Bookmark, print & email options,

? Short statement/ paragraph about what our motorhome rental company specializes in. This needs to be search engine optimized to cover all of the options - rental to go skiing, Europe travel, luxury mobile home to live in during homebuild projects, posh glamping for festivals. Exploring the best of England, outdoors to cities.

? High quality photos of the motorhomes with a link to video clip of the van. I am not sure how to download these but I want to use the video, pictures and panoramic tool that is on the product website for our chausson motorhome. <[url removed, login to view]>

?

? Common navigation toolbar across all pages. May be to include useful links. Such as areas to visits, campsites, what's on?

? Contact details.

? Language options - English, French, Spanish, German

**b. Tariffs -** Simple statement about what's included in the price, then a table split between high, medium, low - for 4 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, and additional days. Also needs to include the same statement as part c about what is included. A special offers link. Discounts available.

**c. Get a quote -** A larger check availability and quote tool. I expect the quote tool to appear on the side, near the top on every page which then links you back to the larger (but the same quote tool) on the quote tab. Needs to be able to select the motorhome, dates, extras from a drop down menu (with a cost per day). Collection or pick up from airport. It may also need to include a driving license tab - no points, years license held, any claims against you in last 5 years. However all of the quote tools on any of the pages will then turn out back at the quote page. In addition there needs to be a booking tab with various payment options. I have been recommended to use Worldpay. Not sure exactly yet what I need to do to get that functioning. There needs to be a confirmation button before hitting book. There also needs to be a Terms and Conditions link on the page. Just under the quote price there needs to be a short statement about what is included in the hire. Alternatively you could add the motorhome hire to a basket which you then add the extras to and split the quote into 3 phases - the motorhome and duration, extras including delivery/taxi, insurance. You then purchase your basket.

**d. Recommended Itineraries and Ideas -** This will split into a 4 options. UK, Europe summer, Winter breaks - luxury skiing from your motorhome, Festivals

**e. Extras available to hire -** A list of all of the extras that we can rent out with a cost per day. Including: Sat nav, bbq, table chairs, bikes, surf boards, etc

**f. What's included -** Statement about what is included in the hire costs. A list of all of the kit in the vehicle and what is included per person.

**g. Location & Collection** - Maps of the pick up and drop off locations. Taxi pick up from any of the major airports. Access to Heathrow and Gatwick airports in less than 15 minutes.

**h. Terms and Conditions and FAQ -** As the tab suggests. Equally by clicking the book it button it should generate a new contract using the terms and conditions.

**i. Contact/ About [url removed, login to view] -** Contact details, query form, registered as Peaslake Trading Ltd, company number. Small family run business specializing in high quality.

**11.** **Webhosting -** Advice as to the what you would recommend as the amount of space and usual cost to enable the website and provide the webhosting. I anticipate that it will be designed using Wordpress so the hosting will need to be compatible.

**12. Sample Websites that we like in order of preference** **and require a similar level of quality:**
