MiniraqWEBSITE & MARKETING // PROPOSAL & SCOPE
Thank you for the opportunity to submit a proposal for the redesign of the MiniRaq website.
Working together, we believe we can create a site that is simple to navigate and has a professional yet welcoming design.
Based on our previous discussions on the phone and in email, we have identified and listed below the Needs and Solutions that we will want to address in this project.
MiniRaq needs an updated website to reach out to the community and also to serve and support the MiniRaq clients and salesforce.
Furthermore, MiniRaq needs a website that can be maintained by MiniRaq employees, without the necessity to regularly employ Buzzhive Marketing to make changes (unless that the best fit for and requested). The MiniRaq employee needs to be able to add and revise both text and photos and add additional pages if necessary.
Buzzhive Marketing will provide MiniRaq with a fresh new web design (matching their current branding via their current print collateral) that is easy to navigate and provides useful information to current subscribers. The design will also convey to potential subscribers that MiniRaq is a professional, reliable company.
The design will integrate the current printed branding so it will maintain a familiar look to current subscribers, but will at the same time show them that MiniRaq is improving its web presence in order to serve them better.
All products will be available for purchase online with all current features, add-ons, etc.
The website will also include a membership protected portal for the outside salesforce that includes marketing and other resources.
- Build a fully responsive eCommerce Website on the WordPress Platform
- Allow customers to shop and search products by categories (i.e. racks, accessories, kits)
- Calculate applicable taxes on orders*
- Sales Reporting
- Ability to add or remove products to the store
- Ability for customers to download spec sheets and product info pdf documents
- Ability to provide customers with promo codes, discounts, and product sales
- Provide and calculate shipping rates through FedEx and UPS API, based on weight, size, and ability to combine or ship products separately based on specified logic*
- Ability to integrate MailChimp for newsletter – This is included in the $880 Marketing Package*
- Real-time payment processing (Shopify offers payment processing at 2.9% + 0.30 for each transaction. You may choose to use a different payment processing; however, it will require an additional payment processing integration cost and Shopify will charge 2% per order placed.)
- Ability to place orders over the phone for customers
- All the above requirements with the ability to offer distributors wholesale pricing
- Ability to give distributors a fixed % off every product or different % dependent on product category
Content Management System
Central to the new design from Buzzhive Marketing will be a robust Content Management System (CMS) that will allow MiniRaq to make changes easily to the website, without requiring a dedicated workstation or additional software. Not only will the CMS save MiniRaq website revision costs but it will also ensure that the website stays fresh and up to date.
The new design will contain existing information found at bhlpower.com and in the current printed marketing collateral. The CMS allows for as many pages as necessary, without incurring additional cost beyond the original design and landing pages fee that can be managed by MiniRaq.
Working in conjunction with MiniRaq, Buzzhive Marketing will provide a preliminary design concept for the new website based on the current print collateral. That design concept will include the basic layout, color palette, font choices, etc.
MiniRaq can, at that point, request one round of design revisions within the scope of the Fee Schedule (see below). If more revisions are deemed necessary at that point by MiniRaq, the work will be done at our hourly rate of $50. (This is rarely necessary, especially for a simple website project such as this, but if necessary will be discussed fully before any fees are assessed.)
Integration of Content Management System
Once the design is approved, then Buzzhive Marketing will incorporate the Content Management System into the design.
Buzzhive Marketing will provide video tutorials, specific to the new MiniRaQ website, showing how to use the Content Management System.
When MiniRaQ has finished incorporating all the content they wish to have at launch, they will ask Buzzhive Marketing to move the website from the development sub-directory to the main root level of the domain, thereby making the site go live. Congratulations!
