As for what I need, i'd need all the programming and website setup done, and then obviously an administrator to keep the site up and running after launch.
The design and layout of the site is largely developed by myself already but I'm sure there are many kinks and bugs that need to be worked out.
And for these beginning stages it doesn't have to be beautiful.
Initially I'm looking for functionality. If I can get the website to work on a technical level then I will want to make it look pretty later.
As for pay, I know right now that I can swing $1000. Yes I know that's very low, but if I must I can go higher if I see that you have what I'm looking for, which right now is experience and efficiency to get this project off the ground before the end of the year.
