Totally Mobile Djs

Jeanne, my contest winner rocks! I am not a web designer nor do I know much about websites, but I wish this site would have explained better to people like me that "website design services" does not mean your are going to receive a fully functional website starting at $595. What you get is a picture file of a design. If you want a fully functional website you have to pay for extra "coding". I think it would have been cheaper to google search website templates, buy one and find someone to edit your code for you. Lesson learned! I will probably use this website again in the future if I have a need because all the contestants were great in their attempt to create a "design" for us.

Project description

We currently have a "starter" site at totallymobiledjs.com that also works for mobile. I did a basic site using Weebly and don't know where to go with it. I just need a couple page site consisting of home, services (hopefully with pictures that are easily changeable) and a contact us form. The Home page needs to "POP" and get your attention right away. I have uploaded both sides of my business card to show our contact info for the website. Chris (my brother) and I have started this "family" business. Chris has been a DJ for over 25 years in various clubs and mobile DJ companies. He (Chris) is the performer and I will have him post a few ideas on his thoughts for the website. I would like to thank everyone for their time they are devoting to this contest. This is the first time ever on this site and I am looking into ways to make this my fun and profitable for those of you that choose to enter a design.

  • I changed the color of the header. Can return. Changed the grid of photos, so they all horizontal, that is more universal. I added description of services and showed a preview of the services on inside page, if it's necessary (I think not). Added a block with the ability to add music from music services. #47
    • @Jeanne I understand the details of the website will be covered in the one on one. So please forgive me for the questions. I (Chris) am used to html websites with multiple pages. I am learning more from Phillip about what you are designing as we go. I must ask you if the template you presented is a single page with links that navigate to different areas of the same page, or if the template is set up for multiple web pages on the site?

    • @jme574 Also, are we right to assume this is the same template as #29 only with the changes you mentioned?

    • @jme574 Now this design without code. It was originally conceived as one page, but I can do design for the other pages like services and they will be separate pages with a navigation in menu, which is now dropping you lower on the same page.

    • Yes, of course, #29 is my design and I make edits and changes you're talking about.

  • There are 4 designers whom we are having difficulty in choosing because each of you have ideas and styles that we want, but no one template has the "full package". The MOST IMPORTANT feature is that we must be able to manage to make edits and updates to the website on our own after the website is built and published. A great design and help with coding won't do us any good if we aren't able to maintain the website once your services are completed.

    The pictures used on the templates that show more wedding dances and teen dances and parties the better. The more DJ equipment pictures used are going in the wrong direction. Phillip wants to use tools by DJ Intelligence along with our website and any designer that can include those tools into their template will gain a huge boost. We WILL choose our winner within the next 7 days! Here is the link to DJ Intelligence https://www.djintelligence.com/tour/

    We understand the winner will not receive the full amount of the contest winnings, so we have an additional $199 to apply towards coding the website for us. Please understand that we are a small company and our hope is that YOUR WORK will take us to a higher level.

    Knettwerk, Posspoint, Jeanne and CSSChimp - - - - Please show us a template using black and neon green colors with pictures of people dancing at parties or celebrations. We are looking closely at templates #43, #45, #46 and #23. We like the wedding picture used on template #34 as the main front page image if possible. Also the pictures used on template #10 for the services pages. If any of you can use these images in your design that will help us decide a lot. We are also wanting to know what the services pages will look like if that is possible.

    Ultimately our website must appeal to visiting customers from their point of view. They must see happy people dancing and enjoying themselves. The music player should be easy enough for us to list the top songs in pop, country, EDM and R&B music charts from like Billboard or something. Also our ability to ftp our own music library as needed for DJ mixes.

    Our service caters to both formal and informal events. Our customers hire us for company parties, wedding dances, teen dances and backyard parties. We are DJs that travel to locations to play music and use special lighting to create the right mood for our clients. If your template can show that, we want to be able to advertise your work to everyone so we can send more business to you.

    Thank you
  • About #6, @Posspoint Please dont change anything on this template just yet.
  • About #46, @Posspoint We like the color change very much. Please change the front page photo to something more wedding dance or prom style picture? Do you have any way to show what the services pages will look like?
  • About #21, @csschimp Are you able to include more photo stock pictures of people dancing and having a good time? Can you add in a music player or music page? Also can you change the template colors to black and neon green?

    Can you add a rotating photo viewer?
  • About #43, @knettwerk I like this layout. We would need a more wedding dance like picture for the front page and our 800# at the top. We need to know where the Book now link goes to?

    We like the colors of the template and the event availability checker but need to know if it can be used with DJ Intelligence or not?

    The services links and the testimonial section are perfect!

    Would there be a music page? I see a music player at the bottom but not much I understand about that.

    Please let us know if you need more information than that?

  • I made the green version with some changes. #45
  • You guys have made this a very hard decision! Chris has narrowed down the current entries to 3 finalists that he really likes. The problem is each one of them have aspects he likes and combined they would make one hell of a design. Individually, they are still a little short. Chris will be getting on later today to let each one of you know what he likes about your design and what he would like changed.
  • About #30, @Ashan CONGRATULATIONS! You are a finalist!
    • @jme574 thank you very much sir i hope i will get atleast the third place. Cuz this time competitive is very high and you are better than other contest holders. Thank you.

    • @Ashan What we are looking for in a winner is someone that not only has a good looking design but someone who has built a functional site. We are in need of either html or wordpress files as well as the image file for the site. Are you able to provide that?

    • @jme574 yes of course. But if you need the site in wordpress, it will cost additional. I can add anything you want like music player,calendar, image gallery etc..but my suggestion is keep the site in html. I know its easy to handle the site when its in wordpress format. Because wordpress is not "secure" than html. But if you need it im on it. Thank you very much sir..

    • @jme574 im ready to provide code for my design for 100$

  • About #44, @Posspoint Please refer to the comment sent to you privately.
  • About #43, @knettwerk CONGRATULATIONS! You are a finalist!
    • @jme574 Thanks

    • @jme574 If you are interested in talking to me about developing your site, please email me at philip@knettwerkdesign.com. Thanks

  • With this design and taking your comments, I have created the navigation bar on top with a Book Now button for ease of use and simplicity. This can be linked to PayPal or Square or any other payment system. The main image is in a carousel in order to show people the various areas you service(you have arrows on the side to move from slide to slide). Below that you have an availability schedule, so clients can plug in their date and can book you if it is available. Below that is your Twitter feed(I might have moved that down further). Next is your Services section, which highlights they areas you work in. The arrow on the right side can toggle down to give the client a description of how you handle weddings, corporate events, private parties, etc. Then you move down to your testimonial section. I added a photo gallery so clients can look at some of your events. At the bottom, clients can play sample tracks of what they are looking for when they book you.

    The color scheme of the pop of color against a dark background makes your green pop and intrigues the client to scroll down to see what you are about and what you do.

    Thanks for the critique with the other design. I hope that this one meets what you are looking for in terms of design and catching people's eye.

    Thanks again. #43
    • About #43, @knettwerk We strongly like this template! You have captured the focus of our target market and it looks like a shopper can know within seconds who is being served. How easy is this format to update and maintain?? Will this site be easy to take payments for services?

    • @jme574 Glad you like the design. This can be made into a Wordpress theme and you guys can maintain it. This will have the ability to take online payments via PayPal. All you need is an account. Let me know what you think. Thanks again.

    • @knettwerk Are you say that you can convert the site into a wordpress template or do we need to find someone else to do that for us?

    • @knettwerk What we are looking for in a winner is someone that not only has a good looking design but someone who has built a functional site. We are in need of either html or wordpress files as well as the image file for the site. Are you able to provide that?

    • @jme574 I can convert it if you want that. It will be an additional cost though.

    • @jme574 Have you considered the option to make your design into a Wordpress theme?

  • About #42, @sunny2007paswan Thank you for this submission. The contest is nearly over, so we need to see what the sub pages will look like. We are also looking for template colors of Neon Green over dark or black background. Also if you can use more imagery and focus on customers at all types of dances and events or holidays and less concert or club pictures. Lastly, we need to know how easy it will be to update and make changes to this site if yours is selected. Thank you.
    • @sunny2007paswan Thank you Sunny2007paswan, We appreciate your effort. You are considered a finalist at this point with this submission.

    • @sunny2007paswan What we are looking for in a winner is someone that not only has a good looking design but someone who has built a functional site. We are in need of either html or wordpress files as well as the image file for the site. Are you able to provide that?

    • @jme574 Yes, I am able to provide you all no need to worry .

  • About #44, @Posspoint We like the colors of the template and the layout is a good presentation. The company logo is sharp and the links at the top of the page are good.

    We are needing multiple photo galleries for different customers and not so much videos. We are also needing a view of what a music player will look like.

    In addition, we are looking for a template that presents a company that caters to different event types, not just dance clubs or concerts.

    Overall We like this design but we are curious to ask how easy it will be to update and maintain this site if yours is selected as the winner.
    • About #44, @jme574 You can convert my theme design to wordpress and it would be very easy for you to make some changes to the content like services, any text, photo, etc. I have a team to be able to convert design to wordpress. If you want you can hire me outside of the contest

    • @Posspoint I like your suggestions, I forgot to ask you if this template is as easy to navigate and use on tablets and mobile devices as well?

    • @jme574 yes like all design before #33 & #15

    • @Posspoint Thank you Posspoint! We are working to narrow down the finalists and you are definitely one of three finalists at this point with this submission. Is there anything more you can present or offer than what you have submitted?

    • @jme574 about design #44 if you want I can swap some of elements of design #33 or #15 to #44 or vice versa like (background photo, photo gallery feature, news, testimonial, etc)

    • @Posspoint What we are looking for in a winner is someone that not only has a good looking design but someone who has built a functional site. We are in need of either html or wordpress files as well as the image file for the site. Are you able to provide that?

    • @jme574 as I said earlier, with wordpress you will be able to easily change content text and images/photo gallery itself. I've a solid team as web development since 2008 you can hire me outside contest to do this job.

    • @jme574 HI there this is admin Sharie I just wanted you to know that if you need html work and coding you can ask designers if they do this type of work and then hire that designer in a 1 on 1 project and negotiate the dollar amount

  • About #21, @csschimp CONGRATULATIONS! You are a finalist!

  • LAST CALL FOR ALL ENTRIES! Please make your last submissions now for consideration before the contest expires.
  • About #29, @Jeanne We are down to the last couple hours in this contest and we really like everything you have presented to us. Do you have the ability to change the template colors of this template to a dark or black background with neon green?
    • About #29, @jme574 I can change everything including the color. But this is just psd design, without code or html file, site not ready for use and I can write to my front-end developer friend for this.
