We are looking to upgrade our current website www.xtremeresults.com.au and convert to Wordpress CMS. We have a full time IT administrator that is IT literate, has a basic understanding of SEO tactics and web design and development, but no HTML or CSS programming experience. They are only able to use photoshop and illustrator for design purposes.
This project has potentially 3 stages.
Stage 1 (commencement within 1-2 months):
1. Changing the format of the home page to a "tile like" selection planel (see attached file). Once the tiles are selected by the user it will take them through to a simple standard format with content designed specifically for the service they have selected. We have an illustrator/photoshop file with the home page design already complete that needs to be modified slightly and used. The other pages will remain very similar to the current design.
2. We need to ability to easily upload video and articles keeping the same format as throughout.
3. SEO tactical advice and implementation. We currently write articles, use facebook, twitter, linkedin and google associations, however I don't believe that we are using our current SEO tactics to the best of our ability. We have the a full time administrator that is happy to perform all necessary tasks required to increase traffic without additional expense.
4. Self administrated backend and blogging capability
Depending on the success and cost of this project stage 2-3 may be required.
