I am looking to ugrade our current website: [url removed, login to view]
I am looking for On page and off page seo optimisation, a joomla based e-commerce platform with back to back ordering functionality and all the current fuctionality on the site (slide shows etc). We will need to ensure mobile technologies are catered for. Additional requirements are capturing customer details and push e-mail marketing.
After it's built I would look for seo optimisation and a guaranteed placement in the first page for appropriate industry based search terms
On reflection - Joomla may not be the best way to go..... I am open to other CMS's and approaches - please state what these might be in any submissions.
Also: Long lists of previous projects are not necessary - I would prefer a couple of websites you have built that match my requirement.
Based on the responses I have had - I have decided to go for a much more robust Project Management methodology.
Please find attached to this post three documents:
A work structure breakdown.
A responses document where the work products are phased - with an opportunity for you to explain your solution further and state whether you wish to bid (or not) on certain elements - where the various elements will be sourced from and any suggestions you may have.
A pricing document..... It was clear from the responses that the scope of the various bids and the prices varied greatly - so I need to understand your bids in much greater detail. There are also certain apects of this build that I may want to rephase or abort according to some cost benefit analysis. So a certain amount of granularity in the price submissions may be a good idea - especially where you feel the cost increases without too much benefit.
Please feel free to ask questions: If the questions make me believe that I have left a significant piece of information out of the bid documentation then I will repost any adjustments here. If the question leads you to have a significant peice of competitive advantage by doing so good luck to you (LOL).
Only a single potential supplier has given us an idea of his version of the website - this individual (You know who you are :)) scored an immense amount of points by doing so - whether I actually liked what was done or not!
I only mention these because I have 25 years plus as an IT purchaser, implementer and supplier - I believe in survival of the fittest and was a little disappointed in the boiler plate responses I recieved from some people. Lack of customer centricity costs sales, Lads.....
Lastly, anything you submit to me in within this bid remains your copyright at this stage. Anything we pay for (pretty much) will be ours. I respect that immensely. My organisation puts a huge amount of effort into pricing and conceptual designs - which we provide freely - and nothing p!sses me off more than a customer who drags in a competitors drawing for me to price, because then I get to thinking how many of mine are out there being undercut by the competion with inferior products. So, please believe me when I say Oak Leaf are an ethical organisation who will respect your IP and do our best to protect it.
Addendum & Clarification 1:
I will only accept Bids where the files posted on this Project are completed. IE - your submissions should be to my specification not your own. If they are not to my specification - I will consider it a 'no-bid'.
2.1 The initial port 'Pre-phase' is for the site exactly as it is. No changes cosmetic or otherwise. It is assumed that the only real impact of this is we may need to redesign skins/templates later on.
2.2 Photo Galleries - at this stage we will need to understand the exact sizes available to us for each solution
The scope of your bid must cover the first two phases to be considered.
1.13 Site Certification
Redundant question – part of our hosting package.
1.16 Back Up/Restore Functionality
We have plesk backups we could use – however, the ability for other forms of backup stored off-server may be useful.
4.1 Link Exchange with Submission Form
Take it as read there are packages out there that do this – e.g. http://linkmachine.net/ I don’t like this particular one – no reasonable support and it is flaky – I am looking for alternatives – or a working variant of this.
