We are a startup company with a limited budget, intending to launch our website to market and sell organic products.
We are in the process of accepting quotes for the development of our Web/E-Commerce site.
To give you an idea, our proposed site will offer online ordering and transaction processing capabilities. Following are some sample/preferred URL's of how we would like our site to look like...
1) [url removed, login to view]
2) [url removed, login to view]
These samples are 2 ends of the spectrum we are aiming for. With your quote please mention whether your design will look like example 1 or 2 above. This is very important.
You are encouraged to give separate quotes for designs based on 2 examples above, as it may help us decide whether we want to go one way or the other.
We have already decided on web hosting, so that is not in the scope.
The ISP offers mySQL database, osCommerce shopping cart, PERL, PHP and other tools. Operating system is Linux.
We are planning to use osCommerce shopping cart.
We will need to have the capability of updating/uploading new product images as needed. Initially we will start with limited products, but the design should be scalable to add more products at a later date.
PHP, Perl CGI
The features may be implemented in various phases. In phase 1, we would like to have logo design, letterhead, business card design and web template design. Please see the sample files attached. Expected timeframe will be 2 weeks.
eNewsletter ability is not needed at this time.
Expected timeframe will be 1-2 months after phase 1.
Phase 3 will include website promotion and ongoing marketing efforts.
This will also include artwork design of marketing material like brochures, catalog, mailing letters, postcards etc. This phase is not part of this project and shall be discussed later as needed. But we wanted to share our long term view.
We are looking for a "long term relationship" with the developer. We prefer to deal with same individual who has capability of graphic/logo design as well as web design. However, if you feel that your skills are limited in some area, please say so and we will work together to get the desired results.
Preferably he/she should have above skills or willingness to learn them. We are open to ideas about how things can be improved, so proactive participation is encouraged.
At this time, we are accepting cost estimates from different Web developers. Please give us details of your prior work (sample, links etc), cost estimate (detailed breakdown for different phases is encouraged), time estimate. Please submit your proposals as detailed as possible.
As mentioned earlier, being a startup, we have limited budget, so please quote your best possible rate. At the same time, let us clarify that we may not select lowest quote just because it was $10 less than the next best quote. Quality of work is also important.
If your estimated cost of development and sample Web sites look competitive, we will contact you accordingly. If you do not have willingness to learn, good communication skills; are not serious about this, please do not waste your and our time.
Once again, let us reiterate that we are looking for an honest person with integrity, planning to work with him/her on a long term basis.
