I need a project completed for a New Year's launch. Because I have experience now working with freelancers, I am going to be very frank
My budget is 250-500. That is low
The incentive - I have too very legitimate contracts with a resume building prestigious XX at much higher prices and for much less work. I will refer you using the site you develop for me.
The budget is low because This is a personal project of mine, and not one related to work.
If I award you the the bid, you must accept the bid immediately. You must accept payment via getafreelancer escrow. I will deposit in an escrow and I will not release the escrow until I deem that it meets the requirements.
I know what site features I need, I have a software with installation instructions, I even a choices of templates I selected for us to discuss over which will best serve the objective.
I will need SEO optimization in this project. You must give me a plan to optimize the site and I will hold you accountable to it.
I will need to discuss the project in detail - so you know exactly what I am looking for and will be able to honestly tell me if you are able to meet the requirements. I will not pay if it is not completed in the timeframe you promise. The site ideally launched 12-31-07
You must have a good eye for graphics and elegant style and simplicity in the new webera, You must work with me to pick the correct colorscheme and design.
My design guidelines/expectations will be given to you.
Software installation requirements will be given to you.
Selection of agreed upon templates will be provided.
Free Scripts will be provided.
You must make sure the product you present is BUG FREE for a soft launch ASAP There should be no OBVIOUS bugs before we begin testing it.
I expect this to be completed in a unrealistic short time frame. You must not work on this if with too many projects. You must not work on this if you dont have experience level.
You will have a talented good programmer at your disposal, an assistant, myself etc to assist you on what you cannot complete to make the deadline.
A lot of the concept, and the inital work has been completed, such as the software, the site concept keyword research and even the initial webdesign.
I also need the software developed quickly and hope to find someone I can delegate future assignments too. To make sure that I do not get UNserious bidders I want to repeat, I only pay through escrow and will not release funds unless it meets the requirements and maintains an great layout.
