We are a full service search marketing firm that offers seo, paid/shopping search management and self serve paid search/shopping management software. We have been in the search marketing business since the late 90s. We would like to bring our outdated website up to date and offer a more informative and aesthetically pleasing user experience.
Our target audience is pretty straight forward. We wish to market ourselves to businesses who are looking to market themselves online. While any business is a possible client, we are best suited for clients who fall between mom and pop and fortune 500.
We are looking for a redesign of our current template and a new logo. We would like the following links (as images) built into the main navigation structure, after text intro, as follows (very similar to current link structure):
Services: <-- text - links --> SEO, PPC Management, Shopping Management
Software: <-- text - links --> PPCBidTracker , ShopTracker
Additional home page links : About Us , Sitemap and Contact Us
We would like a nice design for a short contact form somewhere on the page. See the ugly form on most pages. Same fields, smaller and less ugly...
We would like to use a more soothing color(s) for the site. Maybe a blue (not bright) etc. Background should be white/off-white and suitable for black text. The site will include content that is highly text based and informational/educational in nature.
The logo should be something that embodies search, innovation and success.
Summary: Looking for a clean design that isn't busy or hard to work with. We are relying on you, the designer, to give us something unique that shows your creativity and represents our company well. Use existing homepage body content if needed to show us your vision.
