Work we need done:
Website design + logo to go with design
PHP Programming (Installation & modification of a purchased community portal script)
We are looking to re-launch or community website in jan 2009.
We will be purchasing a ready made community portal which will take most of the hard coding work of your hands. It will need slight modifications and obviously need to be integrated with the new design.
So to make it clear we will provide a pdf document with a list of all the features the pre-coded script will come with. Then we will let you know the features we want removed and the features we want modified.
As for the graphic design we ask you to use your own initiative but we will still give examples of the look and feel we want to our website. User friendly website is a must... as for our logo that has to be unique catchy and out of this world. We want to shock our users when we relaunch. We have scrapped our old logo and old website and starting fresh. So everything will be new to them.
We will pay a $200 deposit or escrow the full project funds which ever we think is reasonable at the time. Access to our server will be given.. all necessary legal documents will need to be signed. This will be done via POST or FAX.. most likely post as we want to feel secure.
Remember our deadline is december 30th so you will need to work fast.. before we pick a team of web developers we will research your company thoroughly to avoid working with middle men who have no programming skills what so ever and pose as large companies. We wish to be in contact with the actual programmers/designers as often as possible via messengers like s k y p e or windows live m e s s e n g e r.
Before bidding make sure you have the following:
Good lengthy feedback
Portfolio or some proof of expertise
Speak good english
Have ID to prove who you and your company are
An address for us to post or legal documents for signing if necessary
Contact telephone number
Messenger account such as skype/windows live messenger
A pdf document has been attached and has a list of all the features that comes with the community portal we have purchased. Please note we will not be using every single feature on the list.
Thankfully I have remembered to make this a gold member project only as me and my team have had a bad experience from unprofessional companies on this site in the past.
Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you.
Would like work up to this standard:
1 of the bidders posted this as their previous work but none of the URL's reflect any work shown in their feedback. So still waiting for proof from the actual web developer.
But from looking at those URL's you should be able to see what level of skills we are looking for.
Assurance isn't proof that you can do the work as we have been assured many times through this very website and have been messed about. This is not the 1st time we tried to re-launch or better our website through GAF.
We will only now consider those programmers with reviews from people they have done work for. This is more appealing than a PM stating you have a team of 300 and a project manager of 10 years experience. Even a coder alone could complete this project for us so we don't find it fascinating when you boast or make up information about your existing or made up company.
We have been in the situation where we have caught the person who claimed they had a team of coders ready to work posted our same project on other websites for cheaper in order to get work done by them and get paid in the process. Very sneaky. This time round we are being very very very very careful.
Less boasting and more feedback. 1 to 5 url's of your best work from both web design and programming will be appreciated. We would appreciate it if you actually talk directly with us rather than copying and posting 50 links of your work or somebody else's and some random text about how can deliver heaven.
Please note we are looking to employ the chosen coder as webmaster for the website and will have weekly paid jobs on the website. Mostly graphic design work.... banners and regular maintenance.
