In Progress

Wordpress Coach

I am looking for a Wordpress coach.

I am not a webmaster. I was working with a person who I thought did a great job of setting my Wordpress sites up, but he has disappeared. I believe my Wordpress sites need a review from someone who has a lot more technical experience with Wordpress sites than I do. I'd like to award this contract to someone who will not disappear, as I value long-term relationships.

Here's what I have:

- 5 small Wordpress sites. (current release level)

- all are hosted on a shared server at www.micfo.com. ( I'd like them to remain where they are, so please don't recommend I move them )

- None of my Wordpress sites are mission critical and none get much traffic, but it is important to me that they be up and visible.

- I get content and form spam that I'd like to eliminate.

Here's what I am looking to have done:

- audit how my sites are set up. I can see using your checklist to make sure everything is working as it should work. (They are very simple template sites with not much content. Family. Resume. Small business. Running club)

- do any configuration work that's needed in my Micfo account. (Probably nothing, but need you to confirm what configuration needs to be done and that it has been done correctly)

- complete any updates of sites and plug-ins. (Probably nothing required, but want to make sure)

- recommend updates or changes to my existing sites

- implement and test the changes we agree to

- test the forms. Possibly add a captcha or other similar module to avoid spam.

- recommend how to best maintain the sites so that I remain current with Wordpress features and functionality

- install and test Google Analytics on all sites. (I have the code. I think we're OK, but not sure)

- document what you did and any recommendations so I can manage all of this on my own should you disappear (use a GoogleDoc that we can collaborate on)

I'm looking for a long-term relationship based on trust and respect. If all goes super-well:

- I will give you a great Freelancer recommendation for a great job

- I will share my testimonial with other prospective clients of yours who want to speak to a reference

- I do not want to become a Wordpress guru and compete with you. I'd like to trust you well enough that you become the person I go to you for help and advice on future Wordpress issues at your hourly rate

- I will recommend you to my friends and business associates. (At least one is looking for a complete site/SEO help etc. right now)

You will see that I have used Freelancer in the past to find someone to help with Wordpress. My experience was that lots of freelancers have Wordpress experience. It was very hard for me to pick a person to do the work. This time I will score responses as follows:

/30 - # years experience installing and maintaining Wordpress sites. I am looking for proven experience, so please give some examples of your work.

/10 - level of familiarity with [url removed, login to view] hosting. Your bid would be stronger if you have worked with Micfo and understand how they work.

/20 - level of experience with written and spoken English. I need to know we can communicate effectively

/10 - familiarity with GoogleDocs and Skype. This is how we will communicate.

/20 - reliability. I want to be a good long-term customer of yours. Please convince me that you won't disappear! Share a few references with me, please.

/10 - affordability. I'm not looking for the cheapest bid, but I have to be able to afford you

/100

If you are interested in this contract, please help me to select your bid by answering all the questions. I plan to speak to the 2-3 freelancers who have the highest score. Try scoring yourself!

Since I am looking for expertise with Wordpress and configuration on a host, please focus your bid on those specific skills rather than Drupal, PHP or other expertise.

Thank you. I look forward to working with you!
