We have an existing site designed with a Joomla back end. The site has never really been finished or perfected going on quite a long time now ( 3 years). . We are looking for someone who could not only perfect and finish the site but to make it as highly optimized for organic search growth as possible .
We may also be willing to consider moving the entire site to a WordPress or similar platform. If we decide to go ahead with changing over to WordPress or similar we have various components of the site, including one area that is an e-commerce component that functions a little like a mini amazon, another area that functions as a mini craigslist/ help wanted advertisements etc. We would need the existing products in these areas including images, functions and features including prices to transfer over to the new platform without us having to manually re-enter each item in our e-commerce or craigslist like area. We are not only looking to change the platform we use, but also to have the existing data we have in the site ported over to the new platform.
If we are happy within the initial work done, we would also be willing to consider an ongoing relationship where you act as our web design and site support person on an ongoing basis. This would entail us paying you a retainer fee for ongoing support work and you would then be available to us in an as-needed basis to assist with daily site maintenance, backing up, and be available to answer questions and in an emergency work with us and our hosting company in case of a site outage or loss of function.
Additionally if we have confidence in your work with us, we would also be interested in having an additional component of our business relationship where you could help us with ongoing site optimization for SEO and help us in planning our Google Adwords campaign and other social media SEM campaigns.
It is important that you keep confidential all the information relating to our business, our plans and our methods of working. We would need you to sign a mutual nondisclosure agreement prior to us giving you any specifics on the project. Privacy and confidentiality are important to us.
