    Hi All,
    I have a client looking for an experienced developer based in Sydney to overhaul a complex website.

    The site is 7 years old and has already been through two major overhauls. The last one was implemented with a bunch of significant tech problems.

    A complete overhaul is needed.

    • The site includes elements for a large business directory, magazine articles and user generated content for deals and discounts.
    • On site advertising and its management/reporting is required.
    • The client needs the site to be developed in an appropriate open source system.

    Clearly, this is not your typical small business website. Site development budgets are appropriate to the project.

    Interested parties, please PM me and include your email address. Also include your website URL and relevant references to enable a first cull of proposed developers.

    The client want’s to make a quick selection of developers and has hopes of a fast start on implementing the site overhaul.

    A short list of prospective developers will be provided to the client and they will be supplied with relevant documentation to enable them to submit an initial cost estimate.

    Hope to hear from you.
    Regs,

    Hi John,

    That sounds like a fantastic opportunity for somebody – I hope that one of our community ends up being the chosen provider.

    Good luck with it all,
    Jayne

    Hi Jayne,
    I’ve not had any enquiries yet.

    This is one for experienced programmers. The site is currently built in WordPress but a number of overseas developers had their hands in its evolution to the point where it is a mess that needs a complete system rebuild as well as mobile enhancement.

    I expect this to be a project well in excess of $10K – perhaps even 2+ times this.

    I hope the client’s requirement for a Sydney-based developer still leaves some good folk in the offing.

    Hi John,

    If you can stretch your reach to Perth I may be interested. I don’t have a website any longer (closed my former business down, but still freelancing), however I am more than happy to share sites I have done with you, including just a couple days ago finishing a redesign for a member of this forum.

    Working with large systems doesn’t scare me, once I get a look at the site and code I could recommend if to keep it within WP or move to something like Drupal or other.

    Cheers,

    Brett

    Hi Brett,
    It’s not me insisting on a Sydney-based developer, it is my client.

    Sorry about that.

    Thanks Matt.

    Client had a bad experience with the last site overhaul and a developer who was not available for face-to-face discussions.

    Afraid I won’t get any compromise on the location issue.

    Best regs,

    Hi JohnW,

    Just my 2c here but when I originally read your post and specifically this line

    Quote:
    Clearly, this is not your typical small business website. Site development budgets are appropriate to the project.

    I was imagining a larger ($30k-$50k+) job, obviously this type of job usually means taking the majority of your workforce (when you’re a micro/small business) and diverting to the project.

    Now that you’ve been more specific and thrown out the ballpark $10k+ figure I think you’d get more interest from businesses on flying solo – maybe look at editing your original post to include this?

    Of course I could be completely off the mark…

    Our team Digital Marketing Strategy Group have a team of developers. Our head office is in Noosa, but we travel to clients who require it for essential meetings. If you’d like to pm me I shall have our Sales Manager discuss the project with you in detail.

    Hi All,
    The client has now selected a web developer for this project.

    Helen,
    Thanks for your response but the client was very insistent on a Sydney-based developer.
