We need your expertise as well as your creativity! We know this is a design project, but we’re new at this, and could use some help from a great designer who also understands some of the technical side of e-commerce websites. We want a great design, but we're hoping to find a partner that will look at the overall aspects of what we are trying to achieve, watch our backs for us, and not leave us with a beautiful look than can’t be implemented! Just to be clear though, coding is NOT required.
We will choose a nice looking design from a designer who gives us ideas, feedback and offers suggestions with the possibility of a long-term engagement over a “perfect” design.
The operating software we have purchased is from http://www.onlineprintsolutions.com and we think it is one of the best available for what we want to do, so at least we are not starting from nothing and we have a good PHP platform to work with.
And we will do our best to stay on top of the contest with feedback and a lot of private communications for those we think are on the right track, including phone conversations if that is an option. All designers are welcome, but some priority will be given to North American based designers due to ease of work with time zones in the future.
Our target clients are two broad types: 1. Property Owners who own and service their own homes, apartments or shopping centers. 2. Property Managers or Commercial Real Estate Companies who manage these properties for others. The second group is the key client, because we can offer them a simple, effective tool to get vacancies filled quickly, and we can private label or brand the functions specifically for their needs.
The site needs to communicate simplicity, ease of use, results, trust. We are a real brick-n-mortar company who has been in business for 22 years, and we have a great reputation for quality and customer service.
We want to be able to support Live Chat. Social Media integration is important. Support for Flash, video and other dynamic tools are a future need.
