I am looking for someone that I work well with to become my long term webmaster. I have many future projects (see below), but this first one will include a blog and forum design and implementation.
I would like this to have the feel and interaction of Web2.0. I want this to be a community spot.
My business is hot sauce, chile peppers and spice. Knowledge of these will help and earn you extra points! :)
This first project is to design and implement a Wordpress blog, that will serve as my home page for saucycontessa.com. I need it to have the graphic design of [url removed, login to view] (I can provide file if needed, which is the ecommerce side of the site hosted in xcart. I want it to have the options, similar ares, and similar links and act like my competitor's site hotsauceblog.com. It will need to have links clearly noticiable (maybe buttons at the top) for the forum and the ecommerce end. It must be designed in a way that is easy for me to edit, and you will need to be able to train me in some easy steps (I am not knowledgeable at all) :) For your bid to be considered, you MUST include between 3-5, and no more than 6, wordpress blogs you have designed.
The second part of this first project is to install my Wowbb forum. The website for Wowbb information is wowbb.com. You don't need prior experience with this, but must feel comfortable that you will be able to insall and implement it. It also must have the design look of shopsaucycontessa.com. Please provide links to no more than 2 forums you have designed.
Future projects will include implement Operator software on the xcart ecommerce part to fthe site (see the software website information page at [url removed, login to view]) website design on another travel site I maintain [url removed, login to view], SEO, link building, web promotion and some maintance of the blog, forum and the xcart ecommerce site, although this is not necessary. I just would like to find someone that I work well with that I can develop a long term working relationship with. Perhaps if you were not comfortable or skilled in areas such as SEO, you would still be able to oversee another service providers work for me.
You must be able to chat via google talk on an almost daily basis during the hours of 8 - 11 EST to discuss project progress. Job must be completed within 10 days.
Indcluding in your bid a mockup of a rough draft of the blog design will be extra points towards my choosing you as the successful bidder. I will consider bids from providers with no feedback, but you must be on the low end of the bidding.
NO SPAM BIDS will be considered. Don't send me information I don't need -- only areas that pertain to this project.
I'm fun to work with, and easy going, but I do demand top quality, fast, and professional work with great communication throughout the process.
Lastly, my budget for this job is at the low end of the range ($400 range), and high bids will not be considered.
