Website Brief for Quotation purposes
The following brief gives an overview of the amends & development work required on the Mane Australia website. A more detailed brief will be scoped once the work is awarded. This brief is to give an idea of the type of work involved. We?d expect those responding to have advanced knowledge of Wordpress, WooCommerce, common Wordpress plugins and website SEO.
ManeAustralia.com is a retail website selling hair thickening products. 99% of our custom is within Australia, although we do get the odd order from countries in the southern hemisphere.
We have a range of 4 core products which come is various colours/varieties.
The Existing Website: www.maneaustralia.com
Our existing website has been live for 6 years. Whilst operational, it is running on a five year old adapted version of Wordpress, which is not update friendly (without losing many of the tweaks that have been made). Therefore has Wordpress and its plug=0ns have evolved, much of our website?s functionality has been compromised.
In addition, our website was hacked last year (spam links were added to our home page and fake posts (link bait) added). We got rid of the main hack (and any appearance on our site), but Google still lists the site as ?hacked?. The site is very buggy and has been running very slow of late. Since getting hacked, we added some security plugins to the site which seem to have prevented any further successful hacks.
The New Website: http://staging.maneaustralia.com/wordpress/
We have built a new website based on the latest version of Wordpress, WooCommerce and other plugins. This site has been built so it should be possible to update the software versions as they become available, without impacting the site design & functionality. It is currently in a staging area on our hosting server, and is probably 85% complete. It just requires some final cosmetic tweaks (that have been beyond our know-how) and some functionality switched on (mostly involving third party plug-ins).
We are looking for a partner to help us with the following tasks:
1. Make any small amends / development requirements to the staging site
2. Make live the final functionality (linked checkout / Facebook login plug in etc.)
3. Make sure the site is running with best practice security / SEO / plugs etc.
4. Help us make the new site live, including transferring our current customer database to the backend of the new site, and making sure it?s working with our financial system (a simple plug-in exists to connect WooCommerce to Eway our payment gateway)
5. Once live, remove all aspects of our old website so that our demain is no longer listed on Google as ?hacked?.
We are happy to receive submissions at a daily rate (with a ballpark completion time) plus hourly rate for further amends.
