This project is for development of a very simple, ecommerce wordpress website that will use PayPal as the checkout system. Will Pay Hourly, but Pay will be capped at ~$100 and will be decided upon before the project starts. turnaround time should be 2 weeks or less if possible (but this is flexible). A very detailed project description & breakdown can be found below:
Website Domain: www.RetroPods.com
will also have the following domains pointing to it: Retropod.com & Retropods.info
Retropod.com is currently ranked #1 in google for keyword “Retro iPod” and if possible to use this as some type of traffic driver to retropods.com I would love to keep that.
Goals of the project:
**Built with good SEO!**
Rank #1 in google for keyword “Retro iPod” ( this is a fairly low search volume and competition keyword), before development I would also like to work with you to decide on several other targeted keywords for this project. I am somewhat familiar on keyword selection and targeting but I want to work directly with whoever will be designing the site to decide on keywords that will be effective targeting.
Clean Design & Functionality
Design should be clean and pages should be easy for me to edit at a later date ( which should be easy with wordpress). Functionality should be good, since this won’t be too extremely complicated of a site this should be an issue. I don’t think any code will have to be made from scratch and you are more than welcome to use any pre-built templates, plugins etc.
The design should be pleasing to the eye and relatable to what will I plan on selling on this site. I currently have a really cheap logo up, I think this could be something I could keep, however if a different designs necessitates getting another logo done that is no problem, If you have design experience you can design the logo to if possible.
Facebook & Youtube Integration
I will be using a facebook page and youtube account to help promote this site and to interact with users more. This doesn’t have to be anything fancy I just want users to be able to get to the facebook page and youtube page easily from the site. A couple simple little clickable emblems should do the trick.
Required Ecommerce Functionality:
- Must have an easy to use ecommerce solution, preferably that uses PayPal as a checkout system. I have a Merchant Account through PayPal so I believe I can use buttons, cart etc.
It must be easy for me to upload new products and include at least 6 picture in each product listing. I will be using this site to sell custom, refurbished, and “retro” iPods and each item will be unique so I will need to be able to list each item from the backend with little effort. Most all products will NOT have multiple quantities.
The checkout process should occur through PayPal if possible, if not it should look secure for the buyer. I do not want any buyers to get scared away because of sketchy checkout pages etc.
** To keep costs low I can populate most pages, however if you could include basic setup of each page that would be optimal, just let me know in your quote. Much of the content has already been created and is on the site currently (www.retropods.com). **
- Possible with a slider that features some products
- Should be able to have multiple categories for the user to search
This is the basis of the project. I have no issue with you using pre-built templates, plugins etc.
I want to keep this project low cost, and focus on SEO so I don’t need to market it too much, I will plan on keeping the blog updated on a once a week basis most likely.
I look forward to seeing everyones Application!
