We're a small comic book creator group and we would wish to hire you to create our own website where people can buy (physical and digital) copies of our work and also read it online.
So far we've been thinking of buying this theme [url removed, login to view] but we would need some changes and several new features and pages.
We have put together some notes on what we would like the site to include here: [url removed, login to view]
If anything is unclear feel free to ask!
To sum it up it would boil down to:
- Rearranging a few sections on the homepage and a few other pages, including taking some parts of the /demo2/ theme and adding it to the homepage of the first demo.
- If possible, adding a progress bar of how much money has been raised from sales (and donations) until a certain goal has been reached, similar to how a crowdfunding campaign displays it. When the goal is reached, the progress bar should be replaced with a countdown to our release date.
- Multiple language website to cater to our international audience, meaning a section where users can choose which language to view the website in. This will also be including a different online reading section where we'll upload separate translated comics for people to read.
- A package shipping tracking page working together with the deutsche post package tracing [url removed, login to view]
or another website that includes it [url removed, login to view]
- An online reading section like this: [url removed, login to view]
We'd like for registered users that have paid to be able to read the full chapter, while non-registered users or those who didn't buy will only get the first 5 pages as a preview.
- Preferable if the images up on the site could be protected so that it would be difficult/close to impossible to download.
- Come up with a way to help us integrate all of our existing paid customers to be able to view their purchased comic on the website.
Do you think your expertise would allow you to make all of this? And how much would you estimate it to cost? We realize it is a lot of information, so we encourage any questions!
