I'm just starting out so cash is limited but I am willing to sign a contract with someone to design, develop, AND maintain the site.
I'm looking for someone who is very familiar with web design yet NOR GOING TO CHARGE ME EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS to get started. I already have a live site, [url removed, login to view] which works for me pretty well BUT I want crisper images, faster load times, a more user friendly navigation system, and more hits from search engines. I've got plenty of great content but the limitations that come with my current CMS are taking away from the quality of my content as you can see.
In exchange for your services I CAN PAY YOU 25% of the revenue the site generates over the first year (paid monthly). With the profit share I expect to see some lower bids since this alone can equal alot of money over time. If we do well in Year One, we'll look at doing another year.
Once the new site is developed, I'll either need an easy way to upload content myself or I'll need you to do 1-2 updates a month for me.
In exchange for your services I CAN PAY YOU 25% of the revenue the site generates over the first year (paid monthly). This helps me ensure that you will be vested in the success of the site as much as I am. I hope you understand. The better job you do on the site, the better chance we'll see profits together. We will sign a contract that includes the profit sharing once you are awarded the contract.
Before I award this to anyone though I really would like you to show me examples of your work and I'd like to see/hear your ideas for remodeling my site.
I'll also need a way to upload content on a weekly/monthly basis. Preferably via FTP.
I already have a VPS (hosting account) with DreamHost.
Have a look Bangbros.com and realitykings.com for ideas of what I envision my site looking and navigating like.
