HERE IS THE STORY:
My website is [url removed, login to view] which will provide a free & paid online membership to video piano lessons. I had it built but it wasn't completely finished - some pages and functionality are still missing.
The design looks good in my opinion, but it needs some modified innovative changes/additions because it is too similar to guitartricks dot com.
I'm looking for the most creative, innovative web designer/builder who can give the site it's own personality while incorporating all of it's needs. You can edit the site that has already been built, or you can start with your own design from scratch.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
*The membership script I have paid for and ready is amember.
*Forum is MyBB and it is integrated with amember user database.
*The shopping cart will be 1shoppingcart which integrates with amember. My paypal pro account is the processor with 1SC.
Once the new customer chooses their membership package, it will direct them to a secure 1shoppingcart single page checkout which takes in the payment info and once complete, will direct them to the amember page where they can create their username and password.
*You will need to login to 1SC account and customize html theme so it matches scheme of my site.
*Secure, private member videos (content) will be stored on my vimeo pro account which I determined is better than amazon s3.
The videos will only be able to be played on my site, and each member lesson page can be protected by amember requiring login, thereby also protecting the videos from non-paying members.
*Vimeo Pro videos can still play in third party player, like JW player. I have already hired and gotten a customized player with A/B loop (repeat) function so users can practice between specific points they set in the video lesson. I can give you the customized JW player files and you can use that player, but put in the video url of the vimeo pro video.
*Admin for the site was done and it was ok, I can show you this. Functions work well, but now that I'm using videos from my video pro account rather than FTP upload on my server, the admin function will need to be edited somehow, so that when I create a new lesson in admin, the options I need are all there to have the new lesson page created.
OTHER KEY FEATURES THAT ARE NEEDED:
Note the attached zip file on this page. The previous website builder did not finish all of the pages so I began work on what I thought they could look like. If you feel you can make them better, please do. And seeing how we are trying to change the theme of the site to look more unique, it's likely that the designs I did will need to be altered.
Also I didn't get to finish designing some pages like the: Pricing, Gift Certificates, DVD Store, and Affiliate page so please make something awesome there. On the Affiliate Page, amember already has a form for the signup, but we just need a simple 'sell' page showing the viewer what it is all about.
*When user logs in, a special page needs to be built for them, so that the typical home page does not show, since that is really the selling page, and now that they are a paid member, they don't want or need to see that.
I'm not really sure what all the member home page needs, but it should be exciting and attractive. There are youtube videos of what the inside member portion of guitar tricks and jamplay look like. But do not copy theirs.
A cool feature I would like is to embed the vokle dot com webcam player. I could do a LIVE web show and advertise the time to members it will be on.
So ultimately, I need you to completely understand the purpose of my site and more, because this needs to be
the most attractive looking and inviting first membership website for online piano lessons.
Send me a customized message regarding this project, thank you. =)
First step is agree on mockup design.
