I am a bot/scraper/automation programmer, and I'd like to start marketing my skills. I would like to do this via a website, however I am a programmer and not nearly as good of a web designer/developer or marketer as I would need to be in order to launch this web site. So, I am looking to hire someone to help me out.
First of all, the web designing. I need a web designer to develop a web site that has a "bot" kind of feel to it. You've got to be creative - I'm not creative in the aspect of design. The site will be simple - it will have pages (which I will be able to manage via an admin panel) to list all of my current bots. It will also have a user system. Through this user system, the user should be able to request a quote on a bot to be made. They would simply type in their request, submit it, and then I would see the request in the admin panel and can respond so that the user will see it when they log in again. When I respond, it should also send them an email. This user system is also the way that my programs will keep track of legitimacy - I will store each user's purchases via the admin panel. There should be a section that will allow me to manage permissions of each user to decide which programs to allow them to use. Also, there will need to be some forums set up, but these can be basic vBulletin forums.
After all of this, there will obviously need to be something to get users to the site. I will need this site built in an amazing SEO fashion, so that it's in the first page of Google for searches like "automation", "bots", "scrapers", etc. etc. I'll also need some mass-marketing done, but I'll leave all of that to you. Or, if you only do web design but not marketing, then I can find a second person to do the advertising. I'd prefer to have a 2-in-1 type of person, but the world isn't perfect.
Now, in return, I may be able to give a small bit, however I don't have much to start things off. You will be getting a percentage of all the sales and all of the ad revenue. I'm hoping to find someone that is willing to host the site personally to keep themselves safe, and then allow me to host the site on my own once I have paid you what we agree on. If you can do this, that would be great.
I'm looking for a long-term partner, as there will definitely need to be future additions/modifications to the site, and the site will always need marketing!
I look forward to your bids!!
