I wanted to write you concerning a web site project that I am working on. First I wanted to let you know a little about why I am working on this.
Back in November 2010 my son was critically injured when we were camping at Fall Creek Falls. At being hit in the head from a falling 50 pound boulder from 150 feet above, Caleb spent the next month fighting for his life at T.C. Thompson Hospital in Chattanooga, TN.
After making a miraculous comeback from near death, we were then transferred to Atlanta, GA where we spent the next month undergoing intensive therapy at children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. When we left Scottish Rite Caleb was near walking again.
Now after being home for 2 months, Caleb is now walking, talking, eating as normal, laughing and playing. We still have a long way to go with therapy, but we are very hopeful and everyday Caleb shows news signs of regaining that which he lost.
I have started writing a book chronicling Caleb's journey. I am obviously not working while engaging in this endeavor, so my time as well as finances are limited. After most of the writing is done in a few weeks, I also intend to work on a home business idea that I had been working on prior to the accident. My heart is to be able to stay close to home, still support my family and stay as involved as I can with Caleb's therapy.
So having said that I am looking for someone who does web design. I would need someone who knows how to build a web site from the ground up, knows how to implement a CMS, can work with flash elements, HTML, CSS, etc. and who can do graphic design. I am looking for something original here, nothing that is cookie cutter, or a cut and paste job with Wordpress or Joomla.
Following is a summary of what I am looking for with this web site…
myTXTr Web Site
MyTXTr is a new online based mobile marketing service that allows business, churches, and other nonprofit organizations the ability to utilize the power of text marketing at a fraction of the cost of other mobile marketing service providers.
How One Uses The Site
Mobile marketing is an opt in only marketing venue that allows a business to have customers text a certain keyword to a short code, say 23456 to sign up for updates, offers, discounts, etc.
A business will be able to subscribe to our service by going to the site, and creating an account by doing 2 steps. Step 1 will be for them to do a keyword search to see if the keyword they want is available. So for example let’s say that a pizza shop wanted to have direct marketing communication with its customers. They would go to our site and search for the keyword of their choice. Let’s say they search for the word “pizza.” Once it is determined if the keyword is available, then they will have an option to pay a monthly fee for their mobile marketing service or they can choose to pay a flat fee for one year of service.
One they make their payment choice the payment gateway will go through Paypal. Once they have made their payment, they will be directed back the site where they can then enter their information into the login in the upper right hand corner of the home page. Their login information will be sent to them once they have made their payment.
Once they login, then they will be able to set up what they want their marketing message to say.
Please understand: Everything that I have already said is already in place. I have a generic web site that was created by the mobile marketing platform provider that does everything I have just told you. What I need is a different look for the web site. So what I want to do is create a beautiful web site, and then iFrame the important parts of the already working web site into it.
