This is only the first stage in a larger project and we are hoping to find a partner that we can work with on an ongoing basis to complete our vision.
Scope of Work:
We would like a website built from the ground up that would automatically generate one page website advertisements within the primary website, each as a subdirectory. We believe that the website should include a sign-up page that would provide the viewer with a template designed to collect customer information and pictures. Once completed and submitted by the customer, this template would automatically generate a one-page advertisement.
So, for instance, if our primary website hosting this template was called [url removed, login to view] and someone from Best Computers ([url removed, login to view]) came to our website and completed the required template, it would generate a one page ad at [url removed, login to view] that would display their advertising information. Please see attached example.
When bidding, please provide the as much detail as possible, including the length of time you think that it will take, what development tools you will be using, what platform will be required to host the website and what will be required of us. Please feel free to ask any questions.
Because we envision this to be a much larger project, we are hoping to find someone that we can work and communicate with easily and reliably. We apologize in advance if the following requirements, payment terms and conditions seem a little strict, but we have had problems in the past and would really like to weed out those individuals and firms that cannot perform.
Winning bidder must be:
- Able to communicate in English
- Available via e-mail, IM and telephone
- Able to show previous related work experience
- Willing to sign a confidentiality contract with us
- Able to email project status reports bi-weekly
- Able to receive funds in US dollars via Escrow or PayPal
Payment terms will be as follows:
Stage 1 - 35% - upon delivery of fully functional beta site and test URL.
Stage 2 - 35% - upon functional upload of site to our webserver.
Stage 3 - 30% - after final debugging and fine tuning within 30 days.
Payment by Escrow or PayPal will be released at the end of each stage after completion to our satisfaction. You MUST be capable of meeting the scope of work and timeline agreed upon in order for funds to be released at each stage. We will not pre-pay for this project.
If these terms are not acceptable to you, we can discuss putting 100% of proposed cost into an escrow account with GAF that will be payable to you 30 days after debugging of finished project.
