This is a new web site that will offer users free astrology reports. The engine that produces the reports has already been created for use on a different site, although there will be changes to it that need to be made, and getting familiar with this custom-built program will be required. Technical Requirements Update the Astrology Reporting Software: The engine needs maintenance and updating for the new user flows. I will provide access to both the development server that houses this software and the old site. Create Front-End Pages and Administrative Pages: I have already created a basic HTML spec for how these pages are to work - and I will forward the URL upon request. Note that you will not be responsible for the graphic design, but you will need to take the designer’s Photoshop files and cut them up and integrate with your back-end work. Content Management: I believe that we should use a 3rd party content management system for as many of the pages as possible. I have looked at a few that we can integrate. Email Service Provider: Rather than send emails from our own server, I would like to use a 3rd party service, like Constant Contact. This requires that you integrate with their API. Google Analytics: The Google Analytics tags need to be added to all pages. SEO Compliance: Using a content management system will help with this, but we need to keep the architecture optimized for SEO (namely page names and URL strings). I can provide guidance on this. Finally, I may want to set-up a minimum monthly contract for servicing after the initial project work is complete. We would do this by the hour and can work out the details once we are in the project. I will be available at any time to provide guidance via IM or email. Thanks for bidding!
