1) Our Audience are Managed Service Providers (in the US only and are tech companies) that offer our service to their clients. They want a great product, rock-solid reliable infrastructure, and awesome support.
2) I would like a full width design, like all the templates I provided as examples.
3) We have changed since our current website, we do NOT need Small / Medium Business, Enterprise, Partners nor do I like the current box layouts on our current website. The only good parts about our existing website is how prominent our 800 number is and that login button is easy to find.
4) Headline and support text could be:
Backup & Disaster Recovery as a Service | Made Simple | Built for Managed Service Providers.
The Easiest Backup and Disaster Recovery service to protect your clients.
Setup <5 Minutes. Built for Managed Service Providers.
5) Try Now or Try it FREE and TOUR should be 2 the main icons on the home page (in addition to Tour being in main menu like http://www.zendesk.com). #1 Goal is to get the to stay long enough to choose Tour OR TRY Now. #2 Goal would be to call or contact us.
Main Menu: Tour, Try it now, Testimonials. (Same as Home, Pricing, etc on http://www.zendesk.com)
2nd Menu: Login (should stand out), Support, Contact Us, About, Home. (Same as Support, Contact Us, etc on http://www.zendesk.com)
Menus should be like http://www.zendesk.com/. The main menu should be very noticeable and larger, the 2nd menu should be easy to see, like Zendesk or http://themeforest.net/item/freemiu…iew/114695 or http://saas-wp-i.worryfreelabs.com/.
6) Top of Page:
US Flag Icon & 800-429-0500 (24x7x365 Support, Sales 9AM-9PM M-F)
7) Main Items on Home Page:
Try Now (no credit card required) & Tour
8) Other icons required:
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, RSS, Google+, Youtube. (put these in footer)
SAS 70 Type II Certified, MS Partner logo (basic not silver/gold). (these could be in footer or in design)
9) Icons nice to have on layouts other than home page, but not required:
Icons for Windows, Mac, Linux. VMWare, MS Hyper-V, and Oracle Virtual Box. MS Exchange, MS SQL.
Add icons for our products: Standard, Professional, DR Desktop, DR Server, Storage, and Mailboxes.
Note: As an example, I have attached part of our splash screen of install of our Professional Software. I'm not in love with the splash screen, this is just a good indicator of what we have now.
I will provide constructive feedback to anyone who asks for it - please ask questions and submit great designs!
