I'm after a website that shows a user cafes that are close to their current location (potentially by IP address module or other means). Tags/category button need to be able to be selected/deselected by the user (I really like the look of the ‘Find Do’ template and how a user can select/deselect categories in which one or multiple categories can be selected at the same time – see the ‘Home Page Four’ example in the live demo of this template [login to view URL]), although I’m open to other options/solutions. I’m open to suggestions on which platform/coding/plugins would work best (noting the cost limitations), including the possibility of customising a WordPress theme.
Overall the front end will need
o Home page (map with listings and ability to turn on/off selected categories)
o FAQ page
o About us page
o Suggest a listing (Frontend submission for suggested new listings)
o Ability to adjust existing listings (need for business owner to log-on and edit their own business)
o Contact us (form based)
o Individual business/listing page (Nice to have, if it is not too costly)
I would like responsive website so it functions well across a range of platforms, including Smartphones.
• A location-based search/Store locator module with maps
o ability to input and edit listings
• An admin dashboard (or some means of analytics / data capture / billing plugin)
o Google analytics
o While listings will initially be free, the site will need a billing plugin or ability to run monthly reports to bill listed cafes. User login for business owners. Payment may be subscription based.
• Nice to haves (if not too costly)
o Ability to be able to determine who many times a café was displayed and/or selected by a user (to be able to show the sites worth to listed businesses, e.g. their business was seen by X number of users during the past XX period).
o Number of user searches within a suburb/postcode or other geo-location.
o Ability to create user accounts will be great addition (but not an absolute must have) - Social/email login (note: end user who is searching for a café, not a café owner).
o Individual business/listing page with things like opening hours, phone number, address and perhaps display media/photo and map location.
Loading speed/user experience is important so happy to pay a little more for better plugins (if Wordpress is used) or coding, etc.
Once the project/ freelancer is selected I will provide any necessary login credentials requested/required that are requested (e.g. FTP access and cPanel access required to the web hosting service - so when you are finished the site is fully functioning).
I would like the final price to include the cost of whatever is used to create a functioning website that includes any plugins, template themes and your time to develop and/or customise the page (if something like ListingPro / Listingo / Listable, etc with Geolocation plugin or similar if WordPress is used). Please note, I not after the cheapest option, but would like a good balance between useability, good SEO , security, ease of use of the admin dashboard and good loading speed/time. On-going costs such as hosting do not need to be included in the quote. Please itemise the quote.
Project budget: $US 150 – 1,000 (including labor, theme or coding, up to date plugins, API subscriptions etc).
Logo, stock images and hosting to be provided by me. I will purchase plugins, themes, etc based on the selected freelancers recommendations. Only payment for services (labor component of the project budget) will be paid to the selected freelancer (via this platform), unless there is a valid reason for the freelancer to purchase something (e.g. affiliate / reseller arrangement results in savings to the project, etc).
Please feel free to seek clarification or ask any questions to assist with making an accurate quote.
