Project Description


I am currently investigating the cost of converting my websites from Google Blogger to a proper full featured website. The template of the site would in the future be rolled out into further sites I am considering. An example site of mine is [url removed, login to view]

The website would be fairly basic but would require the following components:
1. Basic, clean layout that can be rolled out to further websites/domains that would use the same format
2. The ability to update the site from my end - that is update content - graphic, text, video, pdf - ability to format this content appropriately
3. The ability to categorize the content so that it may be accessed from menus on the site, as well as display on the main screen the most recent information
4. Strong social media links - the ability for readers to easily link to our social media sites
5. The ability to collect names, addresses, emails of site users for marketing purposes
6. The ability to use forms to collect other information and return to me in appropriate format
7. The ability to upload content such as pdf and video files that can be viewed or downloaded from the site
8. Hosting of the sites on a server
9. Potential ability to be able to add a shopping cart and ecommerce facilities - I am based in Australia and would need appropriate facilities to receive monies here in Australia
10. Security of content entered by users on forms on site
11. Ability to integrate google advertising into some sites
12. Ability to add other advertising to the site
13. Full google analytics integration on the site
14. RSS feeds, and automatic posting of new information on the sites to social media networks
15. Ability to generate automatic newsletter of new posts to be sent to subscribers

I currently have 3 websites, with a potential of another 5 sites.

What would be the cost of establishing the framework above, the cost of rolling this out to each new site, and the ongoing monthly hosting fees as well as ongoing site maintenance fees?

I hope you can provide some guidance on costs as i am currently investigating these options.

Please ignore the budget figures I have chosen for the project as I want to get an idea on the cost of such a project and currently am not sure of the cost.

I may not award this project to anyone at this stage as i currently determining whether the cost is appropriate to take the project further.

If you have any other ideas how to run this better please let me know.
