We've been experimenting with business and software pilots all year and this is the one!
Detailed spec written for a very simple CMS based site - v1 of www.dealbank.com.au.
It is essentially a 6 page wraparound for, and tweaking of, a third party XML feed of business-to-business deals/offers and a contact form, already done, to capture info from visitors in a particular business niche.
v2 of the site early in the New Year will allow visitors to customise the deal feed themselves by location and deal type (industry of supplier) to demo how the feed would look on their website.
v3 will hopefully fully automate the whole process, enabling webmasters to set themselves up as Dealbank affiliates, which will require some co-development with the XML feed source site.
WordPress is strongly preferred as the CMS and base for future development. No original design needed, just proficiency with WP themes and templates. Any original design required will be commissioned separately.
We are proposing $60/hr, negotiable. I am guessing it is the equivalent of a few days full time work to start with, a week max, for someone with all the skills, then as required. We want to get v1 soft launched by Xmas, then start on v2 after a bit of feedback in the New Year. Might suit a moonlighter as well as a self-employed developer. We are open to a team proposal to cover requisite skills.
Please send a CV and links to relevant portfolio work to me at murray at dealbank dot com dot au.
Keen to get this going.
