*** Please read the information below entirely before bidding on this project and confirm that you have read it and understand it.
We need a new website created. We need the following:
A. MUST be designed to be search engine friendly. Which includes:
1. Text areas that can be edited by us.
2. SEO friendly urls
3. tag clouds
4. category links that are search engine friendly
5. Other ways to make it search engine friendly
7. Article links
B. Be designed so we can add pages on a continual basis that will include the same theme of the home page with the same navigational and category links throughout the site.
C. We need to be able to access meta tags (which means you'll have to show us where and how) so these can be changed.
D. We are very familiar with FrontPage (we know, it's outdated, but we're familiar with it) and would like something very easy to work with but that has many 'bells and whistles' that other sites use like:
1. Featured Products
2. Items on Sale
3. People who bought this also bought that
4. Three tier Affiliate program (that we can choose to keep or remove at any time and edit)
5. Email info about this product to a friend
6. Complete product info including pc#, price, title of product
and order number when checking out. We will tell you about Other shopping cart info later but it's the 'typical' things that are used today.
7. Newsletter mailing
8. Email confirmation that the order was received.
E. You will need to transfer the database from one site (osCommerce) into this site.
F. We will need to be able to edit this site. We are not looking for someone to do a quick job who may know how to design a site but doesn't know anything about designing a site that is truly designed and optimized for the search engines.
G. You MUST be able to communicate well in English.
H. You MUST proof-read/view your work to make sure it works on different browsers. We don't want to spend the time to write down a list of things that are wrong with the site that is obvious to a viewer when looking at it. Things like: tag clouds going off a page, overlapping text, images partially loaded on pages, category links not working, etc.. We want someone who takes pride in their work and does a GREAT job. We DON'T want someone who wants to do a quick, sloppy job and then require us to do all the proof reading/viewing of the site to let them know what may be wrong with it when it's painfully obvious if they proof-read/viewed the site.
If you think you're that person/company, we'd love to hear from you. Thank you for reading this project description.
P.S. There may be some other things needed that I couldn't think of right now but we can discuss this before beginning the project.
Please see the PM for detailed discussion - thank you
