Hello, I am looking for someone to create a new website design for me, although I am looking for something simple, I am a little picky. The design is to be in some sort of html coding so that I can edit it myself when I need to. The script should allow for flexible width for browsers, if I knew how to do this it would make my job much easier as I could give you what I wanted and let you run with it for content adding. If you use dreamweaver or other software that is complex I may have some issues when I need to edit the site myself. Right now I use composer, though I know it has issues. We can talk about this.
Please note that I am a very small company, my site has been up for four years and has brought in little money, but I know I need a more professional site, but I cannot afford a high priced design, especially not knowing if I am going to like your designing skills or not. I have had several people create something for me for free, and what they have given me is terrible, and it wasn't because it was for free, they just were not creative at all.
I need a template. My website is approximately 50 pages right now, however I am going to be cutting a lot of stuff out when the new design is done.
I have a lot of examples of sites that I like and designs that I have started that I just cannot get to work the way I want them to. I do not think the site I want would take you all that long to do, but I could be wrong.
I need something professional, easy to navigate, consistant, attracts people to visit and stay on the site and actually see what we do and what we sell, it needs to be clean without a lot complexities. I am willing to give you 30 days to do the site, but I will need at least a concept from you within the first week so I can know if we are going to be able to work together or not.
I may also need some graphic design on the site, possible a logo, but these are not essential at this time, the design is. It is possible I am going to need someone to transfer my existing site to the new design, or teach me how to do it myself. I really do not want to have to retype 50 pages of information, but the information does need to be reorganized.
I want someone to do SEO for me, I have already submitte the site long long ago to just about every search engine out there, so I need help tweaking the information to get my rank higher in the engines.
You are encouraged to leave your company website in your bid so that I can see your previous work.
Note, I will need you to use skype, msn, yahoo or something in order to communicate regularlly with you.
Ok now that you are totally confused, let me see what you have to say and what you think you can do for me and how much you are going to kill me with... Thanks!
