[url removed, login to view] is an industry portal. I have had tons of trouble finding a capable company to help get this site off the ground. The concept for the site is simple: Users should be able to easily search for industry information, Specifically, users should be able to easily navigate towards targeted search company results. On the flip side, the site should also be designed to entice kiosk-related companies to join our site/directory. Once they sign-up for the free directory listing, the navigation should target them to purchase an upgraded vendor profile with added benefits. Additionally, vendors can also opt to purchase banner ads and/or sponsor a business category.
As noted, this site has had a series of "bad" developers. 90% of the site is already working (ruby), but my recent graphic designer (he's fired now) has messed-up some code. Some of the features that were working 100% previously, have suddenly stopped working. I suspect this is a minor code error issue. I need all these things put back into working order. And then............I need a better layout/design. I need someone who understands site navigation and conversion to paid customers. I have a detailed list of the "fixes" available.
