I'm new at this and really what I'd like is to locate one person who I will handle all my PHP/MySQL projects with in the future. I build websites for small to medium sized businesses and I have two projects that currently need ecommerce capabilities. I need someone who really understands database optimization and start me out small with the capabilities of growing much larger very quickly.
I realize this is less formal than most bids tend to be but I'm looking for a solid independent contractor I can work with regularly rather than a one time person.
I've never priced a PHP project before. It's up for negotiation. I really need someone who's built a reliable ecommerce site before.
Project 1: Small site for a stamp company. I suspect their inventory is someone limited as far as what categories they keep track of. However, in the future, I see that they'll get much more organized and the database needs to support that. I suspect in the beginning there might be less than 50 products but we're looking to have several thousand within 2 years. Details to whomever chooses to contact me. Small project
Project 2: Much like [url removed, login to view] or rent.com. I will be creating a site that features real estate that needs to be searchable for many amenities. Medium-Large project

PHP, MySQL, I build my websites in Dreamweaver, I will be setting the client up with Contribute, maybe Cold Fusion will be necessary?
