I am running a small boutique digital marketing shop, with customers all over the world.
Averaging about 3-4 new web sites development per month (I do the strategy, then the design with my designers, then the KW research and texts - so just need the develoment part - ie from .psd to .php) I am working currently with a good development team from Pakistan. However, they are currently struggling to deliver the amount of new sites I need to actually output. Hence this post.
Here are my precise requirements:
b) able to deliver quickly great quality sites (I check each and every of them for their code quality, and my clients are SUPER PICKY from the design implementation side);
c) able to develop (preferably) in Wordpress, Joomla!, Prestashop, Magento;
d) flexible, able to meet specific development requirements I have put together so as to ensure the excellent SEO property of eqch of these sites;
e) with impecable work ethics and references;
f) able to actually work on tight deadlines, and with a project management tool for all projects...
f) can do attitude: i am looking for a long term relationship that will build BOTH of our businesses...
What I can offer?
a) Regularly flow of projects;
b) Months afer months...
c) with constant Quarter on Quarter growth...
More info on the sites' buildingI am looking for:
These sites average 100h of build (give or take - more obviously for Magento/Prestashop).
These sites will also need to include support post building. Bug / issues fixes are to be included in dev. New feature request will be paid for.
Being able to demonstrate perfect quality from past development is ESSENTIAL. If you can't do that in a PM to me, don't bother contacting me.
Also - being able to put me in touch with your last 4 customers for reference check is also a pre-requisite.
Being able to understand French (as most of my customers are French) is must.
I'd expect each site not to take more than 3-4 MAX to develop once given the go ahead.
I'd also expect the right team to become almost as an extension of my business, with weekly "meetings" using Go2Meeting / project management system (Clarizen) / daily chats and progress updates (Skype and Clarizen). I'll provide the license for all these tools...
Also - I am looking for a "can do", flexible attitude: some sites will be bigger (ie - more time) than others. Others will require simply modifying a purchased Wordpress theme and modify its design to match the one provided. Other will require a bespoke, totally custom made Worpress /Joomla! template. ALL OF THEM will need to respect Wordpress / Joomla! coding standards...
Drop me a PM with references, sites examples, investment per hour as well as a (short) explanation of why you'd be the perfect candidate to work together.
Looking forrward to hearing from you!
