First, understand I am EXTREMELY cynical of web developers. I have been burned for too much time and money to count. You would gag. I've dealt with giant firms, and individuals, and in between. The industry is smoke and mirrors and fraught with cons and incompetence. I will require you to set the expectation, manage it professionally, and deliver as promised. I will not hand you an open checkbook. I will hold you accountable. You are NOT the ultimate gift to the world with your skills.
Now, if you are still reading, I can be a great guy to work with, provided you are honest, transparent, and conduct yourself with integrity. I will provide a scope document and some example sites to help you understand concept and functionality. I am NOT going to tell you exactly what to do and how to do it. You are to be the professional who's expertise I am paying for. I will do all I can to communicate my vision... you make it a reality and make it work well, using your knowledge of customer behaviour on the web and mobile, etc. It is a niche market (distance motorcycling), subscription-based model. Users connect with one another, rate, share, etc. Dynamic mapping will be critical. Simply using Google maps is not likely to get the job done. Best case would be to find a team interested in being in this for the long haul, as the site will be forever evolving and growing. In my perfect world, someone in design or development will also ride a motorcycle, but I know that is very hard to find, as us riders generally don't enjoy technology or interacting with it. The site needs to be clean, very professional (not cartoony), and VERY easy to use by people who don't get their kicks screwing around on computers and tablets and smart phones. If it gets fiddly or difficult to use in any way, the target market will drop it in a heartbeat. Mapping, database building and linking, and constant drawing in of user content and information are the key elements of the site.
To any of you who have submit a "bid", knowing nothing really, of my project, you are now not being considered. You don't have enough information and I am not putting my business model online for everyone to see. This platform is very unfriendly to us clients. It limits the number of skills we can select, and does not even provide a complete list, nor allow us to select more than 5! So the skills relating to the project piece is really quite irrelevant. For that reason I have deleted down to one. All of you think you can do anything, I know that. But I have discovered this is NOT true. To even have a conversation with me, your entire team must be 100% FLUENT in English, and you must answer the following questions;
1. Do you ride a motorcycle? If so, how many km's per month and year?
2. What about THIS project interests you? (other than the money)
3. How many large projects ($5k+) have you completed? What is the largest you have completed?
4. How much experience do you have with map api's?
5. What makes you any different from every other team out there?
6. What does UX/UI mean to you? And who drives it in your firm?
Trying to cull through all the responses, most of which ignore my questions, and therefore will not be considered, I find another criteria I must adhere to. If the first 2 pages of your reviews do not show high dollar complete builds with stellar reviews, your profile will be deleted from consideration.
