I need a design for a new website. This will be a portal for the Gulf Coast. I would like to have everything that pertains to the Gulf Coast from Merchants to restaurants, to retailers etc. It has to be user friendly so far as users can set up their own page with a small description of their business. Take a look at this website [url removed, login to view]
But I want to target the end user so it's more local. Something like this [url removed, login to view]
Where there are specific areas for News & features, to community blogs, to a free advertising area for merchants.
This is an ongoing project therefore the winning bid will have to maintain and update or teach the staff how to do any updating or changes as we grow.
A look and feel of fresh, new high end technology needs to be the theme.
I also want to offer the merchants the opportunity to have us design website packages once they have entered a free listing. Maximum of 3 packages from 5 pages to 20 pages all contained within this portal. We would like to also to host and eventually take care of all the merchants domain needs.
I have had some of you people bid on this with no website nor work no communications. I will assume you are not professionals. Do not waste my time. I have deadlines and would like to award this project by the end of next week. If you don't know how to communicate then please don't throw out empty bids without responding to my messages. I cannot stress the importance of this project. You do this one and I will send you 3 more websites. period!
