We are a urban gardening shop and are looking to expand and professionalize only 3 pages of our webshop, for now.
our crappy webshop right now: [login to view URL]
The whole website has to start from scratch. Because there is not a lot of work in it anyway. It's just a theme with information uploaded. We want it like www.bol.com.
Please, if you cannot show me a link In YOUR OFFER to an active and working webshop that YOU have made, please don't make an offer. This will save both of us time and energy.
Also, we only hire people that are either from Europe or United States. Simply because there needs to be a native understanding of standard accepted webshop principles.
Now, I am an e-commerce developer myself that just recently joined this company and I know EXACTLY how we need the webshop structured and formed and I've written it down EXACTLY, but I don't have the time and I don't have DESIGN skills.
Therefore I've set up the EXACT way I would want the webshop done into detail in WORD documents. With exact screenshots, instructions and examples. Even in the exact order that I want the parts of the webshop to be in. The explanation is attached with this job posting.
There would really be very little thinking needed from your part in terms of structure. Because we know what converts. We just need it designed exactly the way that is mentioned in the documents.
What is important to know is that since we have had some bad freelancing experiences in the past, we would like to limit this job to only the homepage, the list page and the product page, that we need done.
That way, when either of us doesn't like working with each other, we can cut it short and move on.
But if we would be happy with the results and you would be happy with working with us, we can do the second and last part of the webshop as a new job.
It's also important for you to know that you as a developer or designer don't have to do any of the uploading of our 1000 products. We have cheaper people to do that lesser creative part.
All you need to focus on is development and design of just the 3 pages. We will upload our products and product descriptions ourselves, at the end.
It's also very important that these pages work flawlessly. So if you only have done design in the past and not development, you might not be suited for this job.
So please only present your offer if you're confident that you can not only make these pages look professional, but also perform professional.
It's also very important that you can show me an active webshop that you have built before. Simply because there is a huge difference between, for example, a landingspage and a webshop. A webshop has many variables and moving parts and so we have experienced that it's a different kind of challenge.
Since this webshop will be targeting European and American customers, it's very important that English is your first language and that you live in either Europe or the US. That way you'll understand the market and our desires better.
Thank you and we're looking forward to working with you!
