The four templates:
1. Home Page:
Here is the template for our new new Homepage http://www.michaelwolverton.com/homepagenew
please expand the page if it is blurry to you.
Our logo will be on the upper left hand side with login, password and telephone number, and a "contact us" button for email (not shown on the template) on the right.
Two tabs, labelled "Buy a Business" and "Sell a business" should be found between the logo and the login information. You can experiment and move these tabs to the right if it looks better and feel free to round the edges or improve upon he tabs. We want them to be inviting.
The majority of this page will be a a flash box/element that you DO NOT need to create. You need to build everything around the flash box but just leave space for us to insert the flash piece.
We are debating the idea of adding a tag line at the top of this page. It may be something like this "Buy or Sell a private business". Feel free to include this under the logo or to the right of it...or leave it off. It is up to you.
The seller tab should be green & and the buyer blue. Please feel free to experiment with different shades and tab styles. Our logo will also need to be redesigned to match the blue / green color scheme.
2. Seller page
Here is the template that will be used for both the "buyer" and "seller" page. This template is an example of the seller page http://www.michaelwolverton.com/sellerpagenew
Feel free to experiment with moving the "steps" (create a deal, approve matched investors, register) to the top of the page and moving the "stats" to the left.
- Getting Started - Create a Deal: The seller page has four elements: left hand side navigation menu, the 3 steps of getting started, the form, a getting started button and statistics from our solution. This is the default page after selecting Sellers from the home page.
Please experiment with different layouts while also maintaining the green color theme. For example, we would like to see a design that has the 3 steps organized horizontally rather than vertically.
Users should clearly be able to tell visually (I used dark Green with larger font) that I am on the getting started menu item in the Seller Tab. Feel free to use "white space" as long as they are aware that they are on the seller tab.
Users should clearly understand which step of getting started they are on.
3. SELLER MATCHES
Here is the template that will be used for the matches (of prospective buyers) that appear after you post a company for sale http://www.michaelwolverton.com/sellermatchesnew
- Getting Started - Review Matches: We would like to see a design that maximizes the readability of the matches table.
4 .SELLER BENEFITS
Here is the template that will be used for written content http://www.michaelwolverton.com/sel…enefitsnew
This page will have written content on it. There is a possibility that we will have screen shots of our solution on this page as well.
