We are a marketing company that has experience in writing and Graphic design. We have very limited skills in the online world so some of the help we need will be very elementary. We are looking for someone that can complete the current project and also have 7 other websites we need built in the next 30 days once we find the right person. We want someone that has a large amount of experience in Wordpress as this is going to be our house platform for all of our sites. We are ok starting from a template or from scratch whichever is most cost effective. If there are some advantages to buying into certain templates we are open to paying for a template.
The first project:
We need to have someone assist us in moving our domain hosting for our current site [url removed, login to view] from it's current host to bluehost.com.
We need to install wordpress and build new site. Here is a template that we like for a starting point.
[url removed, login to view]
We have also included a mock up of the template with our categories. For the first step we just need each of the categories to have a page with all story lead in's under that category. The left hand column can stay the same as it is on the home page.
Once site is set up we will also want to add plugins that will allow for seo optimization and finally we need to have google analytics installed on the site.
This is the first part of the project and this is what we want bids for. There will be some changes and custimizzations that we want to add to the site so we would like to get what an hourly rate would be for additional work after site is complete.
Please send examples of wordpress sites you have developed preferably ones that have a large amount of content similar to ours.
