We are a Hong Kong-based IT provider and looking to re-launch our search engine marketing service websites. The site has been live for almost a year now as a blog but now we want to have a fully-fledged website with a professional look.
Our plan is to have the site ready in three phases, with a period of a few weeks between each during which we can work on improving the site link popularity.
This is therefore the first phase of the site that will focus more on a nice-looking top banner, the general framework (template) and a seo-friendly design. The following two phases will be on the addition of new add-ons (blog, seo tools) and pages to the site. The designer that would be chosen for the first phase will have priority when it comes to choosing a contractor for the following two.
So here are the basic requirements of the site. We want a new template, not using an existing one. The site should be primarily built using a combination of CSS and XHTML. It should meet the following requirements:
-SEO friendly, pages with static extensions
-Easy content modification
-Easy to extend/add new pages
The top banner should incorporate our logo, that we will provide to the winning programmer, a background related to China and Technology, and the following message: Search Engine Marketing in Hong Kong and China. If you have an in-house graphic designer that should help.
We want a left side menu with nine buttons or links with background effects:
-Request a Quote
The first four could be brought under a single "Our Services" expandable button.
A right column should be available, where we need to have a call us now button, our certifications, a quick seo tip box, a newsletter submission form, and a free site analysis submission form.
Pages should be empty as we will be working on the content ourself after template completion.
In the footer we need to have text links to some other pages (about us, seo tools, free resources etc.)
We are willing to pay 50~75$ for this seo-friendly template with the banner, we would like the site to be really outstanding as it will be the main image of our search engine marketing department.
You are not required to follow exactly our plan, if you have another type of template that would meet our stated objectives you still can bid.
