Build a DREAM Website for a Start Up Event Entertainment Business

We absolutely cannot have the prepackaged template or single scrolling page type. We require a custom CMS that's matched for our business brand, workflow, and specific needs... not what others think is important or what we need in regards to any of the normal, 'cookie cutter' sites. They will not work. I've done a lot of research and found that most design firms state this isn't truly possible in Wordpress or Drupal without significant development resources., which of course is a waste of valuable time and additional costs. We don't need just a typical functional, SEO friendly site. We're not wedding planners and this is the offer we get most of the time from designers. We require a site that allows us to differentiate ourselves from every other site out there.

I would like to completely mirror a U.K. site that I found; with little to no changes other than our own content, images and color palette. Their site is PERFECT and exactly what I'm trying to describe. Being a start up small business, of course, means we have a very small budget. This budget has to pay for everything from the website, to hosting, to phone service, registration, etc. We need to get it built in sections and launched as quickly as possible. The other sections will follow. Even if it's only a temporary site while the real site is being built with limited functionality for certain sections. People are actually booking Christmas entertainment at the moment and I have no way of showing customers what we have to offer. Here it is... please explore the site thoroughly before making a decision. We find it wonderfully perfect not only for our industry but for our business in general. It's exactly what we're looking for… or as realistically as close as possible. [url removed, login to view]

Most designers have stated that our 'dream site' requires a lot of custom applications; heavy on the performance, responsiveness, and search engine optimization side. The lowest quote I received thus far for the site that we require on the skinny side with 100 pages, was $850, but they want to hold us hostage. They're going to own the site and/or encrypt it so that no revisions can be made unless we use their services forever. They want $850 to build and launch, plus an additional $1,000 per year to host and be the controlling webmaster. If we decide to leave... we lose our site. That won't work.

We need an open source site with no encryption. We don't mind the continued use of the web designer to conduct ongoing maintenance while being built and throughout the first year, but being forced into $1,000 annually, being forced into using their hosting only, and especially losing our site after we've paid for it and gone through the build out if we go with a lower maintenance cost, is ridiculous. We even offered and said we'd agree to, with that specific company, the right to encrypt... lock us out from revisions, etc. until the site is paid for... but they gave us a firm 'NO'.

We realize there will be a huge amount of content, images, SMM and hardcore SEO and SEM work. We need to be as close as possible to the link listed below. We’ve been told the site I want to mirror has well over 500 pages and probably costs around $3,000-$8,000. We don’t have that kind of money. We have nowhere near that kind of budget. I might be able to do an initial milestone payment from $500-800 to get you started then can only make payments of some sort. My budget cannot exceed $2,400.
