My name is Wayne Culpepper. I’ve been a professional photographer for 12 years and was part of a production studio. I recently went freelance and started my own production company and I now need to launch my own website.
Take existing Wordpress theme and insert my content that I provide for my production company that offers photography and video services. Activate the website using my domain through Godaddy and hosting through Bluehost. Set up adding custom email trough my site domain but backed by gmail. Search Engine Optimize based on keywords I provide and any other suggestions you have or information you need from me. The website will include sections such as a photo gallery, pages for About Me, a blog page, a portfolio page showcasing video, a side projects menu with a dropdown to various pages about side projects.
The domain that will be used for this website is currently live and hosted on bluehost using a wordpress template that contains just one splash page. This old splash page will need to be removed and the new site will replace it.
What I will provide via Dropbox
A Document with all design details including:
Wording/Copy for About Me Section
Design Elements including:
Web optimized photos for galleries with titles and descriptions
Social Media links : Instagram, Vimeo, Facebook
Portfolio Category Names
Page and Button Names
*anything else requested to facilitate design support
Font and color preferences for website design
I will be available everyday working and responding quickly to any requests you may have and things you need from me whether that be milestone approvals or content I need to provide you to insert into the website.
The template which I will purchase for designer to use is a wordpress through theme forest/envato market. The template is the main demo for Oshine:
Milestone 1: fill in template with basic information to begin the look and feel. Main buttons, gallery names, and a sample of each page such as one or two image in the gallery page, sample text in the About me section, sample blog post.
Milestone 2: Fill in galleries with provided pictures, fill in appropriate text for copy, set up custom email, launch and activate site
I need to be assured that this Wordpress theme will be customizable in the future. Down the road I’d like to hire the same designer to do a few customizations like capturing emails for a newsletter for first time visitors to the website, having a subscribe to the podcast via iTunes button or setting up a shopping cart to sell products using cafepress or smugbug to fullfill orders.
Here’s an example of a plugin I might want to add down the road:
I might also down the road want to add print purchasing using smugbug as the backend.
Are these modifications something you could do down the road and do you think they can be used seamlessly with this theme?
How soon could you start on the initial project of launching the website?
