My project is an ecommerce website that will sell healthy meal options and branded gear to consumers. There will be delivery so integration with a shipping partner is needed.
I have reviewed several sites to give you a reference point. These sites inlcude Seattle Sutton ([url removed, login to view]), Nutrisystem ([url removed, login to view]), and Dine Wise ([url removed, login to view]). In addition to these sites, please look at template #7522 at [url removed, login to view] to view the one that I purchased. It is not necessary to use this template, but I want to combine the sound functionality of the sites mentioned above with the sexiness of this template or something similar.
The site will have a minimum of the following pages:
3)Order - There will be three options. First, customers can order three meals a day for seven days. The meals will be delivered to their home or business or picked up at designated locations. The delivery will have a shipping charge associated with the purchase. The second option will be the ability to purchase raw ingredients for delivery to their home with cooking instructions. The third option involves providing raw ingredients, but the option to add a personal chef to prepare the meals at their home. I will need the ability to add locations and customers should be able to search for nearby locations. For the personal chef option, I will need to ability to allow approved chefs to create a profile. We will either recommend a chef near the customers address and they can choose a chef based on their availability. I will need to create a manual schedule or an online scheduling system will need to be created.
4)Education - I will provide content aggregation for sites such as [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], and nhlbi.nih.gov. Also, I would to include tools like MyPyramid Tractker and Plan from the [url removed, login to view] site. These can be iFrames.
5)My Amego - This is where customers can personalize their content. Once they register, they can view their order history, receive up-sell and cross-sell recommendations, subscribe the health and nutrition news feeds, manage their Physical Activity events calendar, and participate in discussion forums. We will also post several events on a public calendar.
6) Franchise Opportunities - This relates to folks signing up become pick-up locations
7) Affiliates Program - Allow others to receive a small commission if the visitors come from their website
It will be important that the firm have sound ecommerce development experience. The entire site doesn't have to be done in flash, but I would like a sexy intro highlighting fitness and nutrition and a few of the pages can can contain flash as well. There also needs to be a spot on the site to place banner ads for sponsors and partners.
I am willing to provide more detail during the design process. It will also be important for the successful bidder to provide a portfolio of their work.
I am a easy going client and I am looking to leverage your expertise. I want a sound ecommerce site that makes healthy eating look exciting and sexy. The website must create a desirable experience and create stickness. It is very important for my users to have a great experience because this will be my main interface to customers. I am open to recommendations on how to make this one of the best sites of it's kind.
First, I need to find a great development partner.
