Construct a web site for Big Diamonds.com.? Today my hosting service is squating on my domain: [[url removed, login to view]].? I want to build a similar site and upload to replace them.? I will supply logo, and an image to include.? Since I'm a business guy and not very tech, I may need assistance uploading the site (hosted by network solutions).
While we can model the site on the current one, we'll need 5 tabs on the top nav bar, similar links on the left as currently on the site.
I'll supply initial content, but I'll need an easy way to update content
Will also need a blog feature.
Obviously all design and content become my property
I've had a couple of very successful rentacoder projects - I'm easy to work with and generally prompt in my responses.? However, I have a very full time job, so there may be a gap or two in my reponse time.
In the proposals, I'll need your guidance on how fast I'll need to provide content for the pages.? I've drafted some, but have much work to do.
Please use the latest retail e-commerce sites as guides: Coach, David's Bridal, Williams-Sonoma are good examples.
Have a spot for shopping cart and my account; I'm going to use this site as an aide in capital-raising then add full-fledged e-commerce capability.? If you want to propose on costs for shopping cart functionality, please do.
I have no experience in using services to collect fees or commissions from web traffic sent to the sites we'll show, so I need guidance on how to do that and which services to use.
User instruction documentation will be very important so that I know how to maintain, update content, change images etc.? Also, I'll need very specific, non-technical documentation on how to re-size images, etc.
In summary, I don't know what I don't know, so I'll need developers who have patience with a business guy, not a fellow coder.
