Thank you for your interest. We are managing the SEO for 3 sites and looking for assistance.
We are taking the following approach towards awarding this project.
Interested parties will put together 2 estimates.
1) The first for the first site (which should be significantly discounted because if you do well there, we will reward you with #2).
2) The second estimate is for the remaining two sites. You can assume, given sufficient bids, we will make a decision on the first site within 1 week. If things go well, you will be given the lead opportunity (within 30 days) to complete the remaining sites.
A. We expect you to use every LEGAL optimization method you know, including SEO, Social, digital, etc. Please DO NOT tell us later we limited your scope. You are the expert. It is/will be your job is to drive relevant traffic - it is/will not be our responsibility to tell you what you can/cannot do - you should be guiding us. Your bid should cover all costs. (ie, your bid cannot include adword campaigns but then you ask for funding. If you feel this funding is critical, then you should package into your bid)
B. A DETAILED proposal (for this project) is the best approach. We will contract with the firm who brings credentials, a detailed plan with timing and key performance measurements as soon as we see them. We will be avoiding canned proposals where its evident that you did not even look at the sites.
C. If its easier, you may deliver a proposal for #1 and quickly and then follow up with a second proposal for the second two sites within a few days. If you take this approach, please let me know when you will be submitting what.
D. Contacting these sites directly automatically eliminates you from ANY consideration on any of this project. DO NOT GO DIRECT.
E. The range of the project cost below covers the entire project (#1 and #2) for a period of 6 months – meaning, we’d expect the entire project (all three sites) to come in within $3-5,000k. We would expect your bid for #1 to be fairly small in comparison because you are proving your skills and you’d like the 2nd part of the contract as well.
F. If you are seriously interested in this assignment, it would probably be a good idea to provide before & after Key Performance Metrics of successful past clients.

This technology site is having its content re-written at the moment but the current state provides a good view of direction. The ABOUT section of the site provides detail on background of the group and the SERVICES section details what is being offered. The expectation is that your efforts will target small and mid-size firms seeking CRM and/or marketing automation as well any firms seeking [url removed, login to view] consulting. The company desires to obtain traffic from any Small-mid-sized firm nationally or locally looking to start or optimize an existing CRM or Marketing automation solution.
2. As discussed earlier, these next two sites will be a package awarded based on pricing and performance of #1.
