I have purchased several domain names from Go Daddy including [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view] and the one that I will need developed first is officialcartrader.com. If the latter is done to my satisfaction, I will need the others done at a later date as well by the same designer.
My site should be set up similar to [url removed, login to view] which is the largest on the net today. The big difference will be the cost for the customers. I will allow free listings for all and hope to capitalize on affiliates, banner ads, etc. etc. I will also offer free listings to any auto dealers in the USA . I will have my work cut out for me emailing customers from Craigs list, Ebay, want ads, free car want ads, anywhere I find someone selling a car. I can do the attributes through the admin for make, model, as well as location for all 50 states and their major metropolitan areas.( I might need some guidance at first but can do the laborious work myself) Naturally I will borrow some ideas from Autotrader.
I would need somone who can do scripts allowing customers to upload their pics, add descriptions of what they are selling etc. etc. If I can promote this well on my own through gathering sellers nationwide as well as placing small classifieds in major metropolitan newspapers, I think this may take off. I would need somone who is knowledgeable to allow possibly 200,000 customers placing free listings. Obviously this will take time to catch on nationwide but I think it will be successful in the long run. I would like someone to be able to design this from the bottom up with great graphics, logos etc. If this is something you would seriously be able to take on, then please give me a ballpark figure. I want it done professionally and to my satisfaction and would allow 30 days to accomplish this site. Anyone saying they will do it in a week I'm not interested in talking to. There will be other things I can't think of now that I will want done for the site so please keep that in mind as well.
I would also like to find someone who is an expert at press releases , SEO , etc. and can help write copy for the following pages, About Us, Affiliates, Terms and Conditions [url removed, login to view] this is something you can tackle at a fair price then let me know ASAP. I want to make a decision in the next few days.
