I am a perfectionist, seeking the services of an experienced website designer and front end developer who can setup my HTML and plain text email newsletter system within MailChimp. I would prefer you to be already experience with using MailChimp but not essential if you are confident you can learn quickly. Here is my criteria list which is broken down into 3 main areas: MailChimp setup, the HTML Email Template creation and the subscription sign-up form field which I need embedded on all webpages within my website:
MailChimp Setup [url removed, login to view] :
- Must use a double opt in auto-responder system. On the auto-response confirmation email I also want to encourage my subscriber to add my email address into the Email Client’s whitelist.
- I’ll need all logins once setup as well as basic overview of the longer term backup procedure for the database.
- I would like to be able to track a lot of data including conversion rates. I have Google Analytics setup on my website which I would like it integrated.
- Other things I would like to be able to track are: open rates, click rates, forwards and unsubscribers.
HTML Email Template:
- Deliverability is key! Therefore proper testing is a must. If you cannot offer me a service where you test all aspects of this project correctly then please don’t respond to this job.
- I require a solid HTML Email Template which won’t be reliant on images and will use Tables for layout and inline CSS. I need the design to reflect my website and my business. It also needs to gets attention, uses correct colour marketing psychology.
- Tested in majority of Email Client programs including Outlook 2007 and online email programs like Gmail.
- I would also like a plain text workaround for mobile phone recipients.
- Must also have an unsubscribe hyperlink/ mechanism
Subscription Sign-up Form Field:
- Designed with room for some form of appropriate Call to Action graphical element that ties in with my websites overall ‘look and feel’
I will supply you the relevant parts of my website HTML build in a WinZip file. Upon completion and prior to payment you must supply the modified files back to me
- Room for me to write (add in) 10 words of text that will help encourage sign-ups
Beyond this I may be seeking assistance with the creation of each HTML eNewsletter. This depends on your design and development rates however. These rates are not essential to winning this initial one-off setup and template design job though.
Please only bid if you take pride in your work. I require this job to be completed to the highest standard, thanks : )
