UPDATE: Congratulations finalists! Please hold tight until I can give you additional feedback on your designs. Expect to hear from me next Monday, July 16th.
We want to update our blog page with various features. We have attached a mock up image of the features we want to include. Please review what the blog currently looks like with our desired additions (http://blog.philadelphiarealestate.com/).
We would like a banner ad about 728x90px placed at the top of our blog, above our Philadelphia Real Estate Blog header. We would also like to include other banner ads about 240x400px, 160x600px, and 250x250px that will be placed on the left and right side of the blog content/posts. We may want more or less than three ad spaces on both the left and right side, but please take into account that we want the potential ad space.
We would also like to include a widget that will list featured real estate listings from our main site (http://www.philadelphiarealestate.com). There is an example on the left side of the attached image.
We want to include a widget with will list blog posts with the most recent comments, as well as displaying how many comments that blog post has. There is an example of this on the right side (a yellow widget) on the attached image.
We also want a social media connect widget where our readers will be able to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, etc. We also want this widget to show how many people like our Facebook page. An example is shown on the right side of the attached image.
On the attached image, we have shown we want to include a Quick Search widget on the left side as well. This will be a way for readers to search through our listings at (http://www.philadelphiarealestate.com).
There is already a search bar, a Recent Posts, Archive, and Neighborhoods links on the blog. We want to push that down below the other widgets and ads as you can see on the attached image.
We would like to change the header as well. Currently it says Philadelphia Real Estate Blog with a button linking to the listings. Please keep the size the same as it is right now.
The width of the space that will include the posts and the features on both side is 980px.
