We are a leading software firm in the packaging manufacturing business. We provide business software systems for companies that manufacture packaging (corrugated boxes, folding cartons, etc.).
We need a HTML email newsletter template built for a monthly email newsletter starting in December 03. The template content must be easily updated by us for each issue using Dreamweaver or similar.
The newsletter will be sent to a small but growing opt-in list.
Graphics must be simple, high-quality, and related to our business.
1) Complete and fully-functional working template and associated graphics and files in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) Exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site).
4) Agreed hourly rate for any additional work of similar type in next 12 months
5) Template complete by December 12
6) Consultation with us to determine look and feel, appropriate graphics for our business
7) Assistance with uploading template to our web server (we have a competent in-house IT person, so this should be minimal)
8)Newsletter must be of reasonable filesize for quick download on dialup
9) Link on top of newsletter to view it on the Internet for those who cannot receive HTML email
10) simple emailing app as alternative to bcc'ing the newsletter to my opt-in list, with some tracking ability and automatic opt-out.
11) Two 125X125 banners, and two 468's - animated .gifs or flash.
Does not matter so long as laypeople with some HTML editor experience can change content for each issue (text and graphics)
