We have a newly implemented Zen cart site where we are soliciting partnership for ongoing work for maintaining the product data. WE currently have about 40 Brands and each of the have products anywhere in the range of 200-2000. We need to be able to do the following
-Correct existing data with correct pricing & other fields
-Assign them to Our predefined categories
-Add new products to the website by entering the data and images, assigning categories etc.
For all of the above, we would need a team of Data Entry operators & image cutters.
WE will provide all the High Res images and PDF, Excel price books for the data entry.
It doesn't matter to us whether the provider achieves this tasks by direct SQL insert or manually data entry. I suspect the choice would be by SQL.
The procedure for each vendor would look like this
1-Correct all the current data for the Vendor as per the new pricing, data specs etc
2-While correcting the data, assign them to the right categories
3-Correct the Meta Tags, search keywords
4-Provide a report of what products were not corrected or not in the database
5-Create Images from the Hi res Images provided
6-Enter the new product and the data as per the above steps above
WE want to partner with a team that has the right resources that can achieve this in the most cost efficient manner. All work must be verified and proofed for error and spelling by an assigned supervisor. Reports should be submitted for the products corrected and other products that are missing images, or data, price etc.
This will be a long term on going relationship as we plan on adding new vendors every month. You will play a big part of achieving this goal.
Bids should be based on correction of 1 Brand considering there can be anywhere for 200-200 products per brand. Please keep in mind there are close to 40 Brands to begin with. So Please keep your Bid per brand. We will be releasing Data Sheets etc Brand.
Depending on the resources of the winning bidder, we might approach all of the Other bidders as well to simultaneously work on the other Brands, so please keep that in mind that we will most likely select Multiple Vendors for this project so we can get this corrected ASAP.
Thanks and good luck
Correction: 1 Brand can have anywhere from 200-2000 Products. You are bidding on 1 such lot of Brand
I thought it will be good Idea to open up the Project again and clarify a few things that Came up on PMS from a various providers. One thing I want to make sure ALL of you who bid on the Project UNDERSTAND the FOLLOWING
1- YOU MUST BE FAMILIAR WITH DATA ENTRY IN ZENCART
2- I have Provided you with a RANGE you can expect in a Brand 200-2000 Products. If people are finding it difficult to bid on a range. Please CLARIFY your BID for 1000 products. WE will use that to calculate a per product cost.
3-The final Price paid will be calculated from how many products were given to you to correct and Enter new.
4- I have attached a Sample Spreadsheet of a typical data entry that will be needed. It includes Basic Product Information, like Title, Description and Price.
5- The Dimensions and Finish and some other data is entered as Attributes in Zencart.
6- We will provide Detailed Instructions to each project Winner when we assign a Brand to them, Telling then what needs to be done.WE will provide all Images that will need to be cropped and inserted as part of the data entry as detailed in the Project proposal
7- Providers need to have Image croppers to do the necessary image prep. Please don't IGNORE THIS
I hope this makes things a bit clearer and please update your Bids if necessary.
WE have extended project for another 2 days. This is a featured Project now so WE CAN PICK 10 WINNERS.
This is a long term relationship so please understand we are looking for people who can do this work efficiently and without errors
