We are a brand new start up looking to get going with a portal site.
We have chosen Noah's Classifieds as the base script but would like some customisation in terms of look (theme) and various mods. We also want it to be mobile device compatible. (more details below)
Rather than one particular project here, we are looking at several spread out. Of course we are looking for a good price, but as important is our relationship with the freelancer. We don't mind if you are an individual or a bigger company but we want to build up a relationship that will last with someone that will get to know our project and know what we are looking for. We don't (if possible) want to be searching for and getting to know new people for everything we do.
The site obviously is to be a classifieds site. However we are looking for a bit more flexibility within the categories.
Some examples of things we want adding are: ebay type capabilities within various chosen categories so that a percentage can be taken. The star ranking system that could be added to various categories/posts regardless of whether there has been a sale or not. i.e. rating a particular restaurant or service. Banner rotator mod set up (may not be required but we are trying to gauge a few prices based on what we already know).
I know it is not an easy post to reply to but I hope you get the feel for the type of person/people we are looking to work with.
For the moment we just want to make contact and talk about various projects from the outset with the right person.
If you could add a few sample prices based on past works/anything similar you might have done it would be much appreciated.
