I need help setting up a website for a telesummit for about 12-15 speakers that I will be hosting February 8-19, 2016. I'm pretty web literate - I know some html and have set up my own website at carrie-rubin.com with the Wordpress platform, but there are some technical aspects of the telesummit site that I need some help with that I don't have the time or inclination to figure out how to do (for example: opt-in gate, setup digital download purchase). I'd like for someone to help me put together the framework for the site with Wordpress, install necessary plug-ins, etc so I can drop in creative elements and other content.
I already have secured the domain and hosting (survivingearlychildhood.com) and installed wordpress. The theme that's live on the site is more or less what I'd like it to look like, but I'm not married to that theme if you think another one would work better and have a similar look.
Homepage to include:
1) opt in box (or two or three!), integrated with mailchimp
