I am looking to have software developed for my company. I own a consulting company who does consulting work with clients who need websites developed. I am looking to have software created so I can just sell them software and they can use the templates to create a great site. I'm looking for something that is owned soley and strictly by me. All work needs to by your own and not found somewhere else. I need this software to be as simple as them placing the CD Rom into their computer, typing in their wording for their site and having something help upload the site to their hosting company. Very simple, with great customizable graphics and colors. Not only will I want that on there, but I'm going to want articles placed into this software on Management, Marketing and Advertising within it. This will act as a small tutorial to their basic advertising needs. I would like to see 10 articles on each topic posted in there where they can navigate and read up on this. The person I select to do this will need to do routine maintenance on the software to ensure it's efficiency and also do new updates to different versions. I will only look at people who send me examples of past work they have done. In regards to the 30 articles I need written, I will be posting them in a different auction unless you specify you can do that as well. Thank you.
