What parts of this project are within your expertise. Please let me know what's feasible, difficult, or expensive.
Audience: Small businesses, mostly women or minority owned. Homemakers.
Site Type: Informational.
Content: Narrowly focused business information in specific area. Don't want a "too much of everything site." Want visitor to have hands-on info right away in a few, but key related categories. MUST BE SCALABLE so that I can add more costly features later without overhauling site.
Key features: (1) Simplicity of navigation. Not endless loops of going all over the place and not remembering where you started. (2) Want to have links as reference and follow-up points, but not hypertext messily sprayed around the page. (I liked [[url removed, login to view]]">[url removed, login to view]">[url removed, login to view] ).(3) Membership area for selective services and posting that is password protected. Submissions preapproved. Membership upon small fee that also provides participation in Membership directory of services. Would like something like [[url removed, login to view]]">[url removed, login to view]">[url removed, login to view] It&'s that box they have that runs dates of events coming up. I would like a little box that highlights certain items on membership site. No more than 2 or 3 words. E.g. Web Design. Golf Balls. Tutoring. This would be an inducement to sign up for membership. Could it be off on the side on the home page? (4) Separate place for advertising pay per click. · I may want to use something like this [[url removed, login to view]]">[url removed, login to view]">[url removed, login to view] i.e. have pay per text links on a page for follow-up information. (5) Membership directory database. (6)Area to post questions that are answered by other members. (7) Area For Jobs Available & Jobs Wanted

(Adding stuff I couldn't fit above!)
Look: · Eye-catching, but streamlined and "professional" look.
. Not techno or cold looking.
Do not want the site to look junky. This should be a simple design, but unique. I think photos help break up the monotonous text and bring the page to life in a way I want. For e.g. I think this works. [[url removed, login to view]]">[url removed, login to view]">[url removed, login to view] . The arrangement of info here is interesting. [url removed, login to view]
Don't want template look. Don't want cutesy-womens-site look.
· Warm and inviting.
Look of trustworthiness. (Site should look "polished." Not like a housewife's lunchtime project).
SITE COLORS This color is perfect: This color is PERFECT: [http://www.kurani.com.
[[url removed, login to view]]">[url removed, login to view]">[url removed, login to view] Just the kind of cutesy womens thing I do NOT want.
[[url removed, login to view]]">[url removed, login to view]">[url removed, login to view] Some good information presented, but once again. Just ugly. I just don't want to stay on it too long. I feel like I'm reading literature from the tire store.
