The primary purpose of this website is to promote (and eventually sell online) a new book about the TV show FRIENDS. The attachment has more details, but the main issues are outlined below. The site itself would likely be rather basic, i.e., text, photos, and graphics. No video is anticipated. It might include audio. The required functionality includes a simple database (registration forms), paypal or similar ordering/fulfillment, message posting (feedback) board, and any other functions that you can think of that might encourage the audience to communicate with the author and the fan community. NOTE: The ordering function (e.g., order cart/paypal) is NOT required for at least another month or two, so you may submit a bid for the basic website minus the order processing, or the complete site, or both. The essential requirement for the near-term is to develop a promotional marketing presence to create grass-roots 'buzz'. Please include any relevant past work samples or links.
