I am in need of a basic brochure style web site for a Mobil Dog Grooming business.
The site will include a home page, an about us page, a services page, an FAQ page, a links page, a contact us page including a form with a form acknowledgment notice to the customer when they submit a form, a testimonials (gallery page) that will include photos and comments from satisfied customers. I want the images on this page to include something like Lightbox that will enlarge the image and have the testimonial (text) included within the enlargement, something that has movement to it.
I will require the most up to date SEO and meta data included in the project. If you can provide comprehensive search engine submission (with proof of submission) your chances of winning this project are even better.
Once done the site will be relatively static except for the occasional addition of new customer testimonials. I would like the provider to be available to make additions when need (for a nominal additional fee of course)
The client has a logo and a couple of styles in mind that I will provide to prospective providers. The actual design will be an original combination of the styles provided.
I will require three wireframe mock-ups (Story-boards) to provide to the client for them to choose from and their final approval. Once the client has decided on the style all content will be provided. Some image optimization will be required.
As with any project there will need to be some adjustments made as the project progresses according to the clients wishes. The requests will not be unreasonable as I will have the client sign off on each stage but my experience shows that some changes are unavoidable. The selected provider must understand this and be willing to work with me and the client should this situation arise.
While this project will be built according to the clients specifications I am looking for a provider that will bring some creativity and flair to the project. I need the site to have a very slick , hip, modern, web 2.0 look and feel to it with some bells and whistles that provide the WOW effect without being over done.
This is basically a fairly easy project but I require the utmost in a professional presentation.
Interested providers should submit a personal PM regarding this project along with links to recent related projects.
Canned or scripted responses will not be considered.
I have used a couple of providers here on GAF. Most I have kept on as partners for on going projects and hope to do the same with this offering as I am in the process of building a virtual "team" that will be able to work with me on an on going basis.
If you posses the skills required for this project and are reliable, talented, creative, a good communicator, fluent in English and available for ongoing work please bid and post your information.
If you have any additional questions please feel free to post them here. I will upload the styles and logo to providers that I am interested in.
The timeframe for this project is about two weeks from the time it is awarded. My client is shooting for a September 1st launch but there is some flexibility in that.
Lastly I use IX web hosting ([url removed, login to view]) using the Linux Unlimited Pro plan. Please check out IX to make sure that my hosting plan has everything you need. I'm sure it does.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.
