We're looking for someone to build a commercial website to introduce and market a new product/service, based on smartphones and tablets (Android, Iphone, etc.)
Because the service is new, we expect copy to change a lot, so in addition to the initial design, we want someone who can set us up with a system we can largely manage ourselves:
(1) Add, change text on pages
(2) Add, change images on pages
(3) Add pages based on existing pages
(4) Delete pages
(5) Add content designed to be easily changed: press releases, powerpoint attachments, etc.
We've written most of the copy and done a preliminary layout. You can see the wireframe at this address:

The wireframe tool is very limited so you should not assume that the layout meets our requirements, only that it is a good start on what we want. You should feel free to be creative if you like.
The look and feel of the website should be targeted to US business users. This is a professional product aimed at business users. That doesn't mean we want the site to be boring, but it does mean it needs to look professional.
There are elements you will need to source for us including: photos for illustration (stock photos of construction workers, nurses, engineers in the field are good examples) and icons for the symbols to illustrate smartphone functions (e.g. camera, video, etc.).
In addition, we want help with finding a content management system to enable edits as needed. We're familiar with cushy ([url removed, login to view]). As users of such systems, we are reasonably capable, but don't want something so complex it takes very long to deploy simple changes. Example of such changes:
- Adding a new press release
- Announcing a new feature
- Replacing one of the case studies (see the wireframe to understand)
- Adding a case study
- Making text changes
We are not programmers and don't know HTML, CSS, or any of the other technologies except at a conceptual level. We do have a staff of programmers but use them for application development.
Currently the site is hosted at godaddy, but can be moved easily.
Last, we want the site to be optimized for SEO and want you to include any promotional activity you can in your bid. The market for this product is business users who need mobile data entry forms specifically for quality management, assessment, evaluation or inspection. We expect most of the users of the product to come from the construction, health care, food service and home-service businesses.
If successful, there will likely be a follow-on project to create an interactive demo of the smartphone functions.
We will set the project size to be quite small but feel free to bid what you think is needed to make the project work.
