I am not sure if this is the best place to start throwing this idea around, but I am thinking about starting work on a killer business website builder with all the frills that is as easy-to-use and DIY as possible. More importantly, it will be awesomely effective at promoting the client companies both through SEO and other methods - basically to take on Yola, Doodlekit, Yahoo and the rest of them and win! There will be a free and paid version of the site an it will have a lot of extra features that will set it apart from the competition. Roll-out as a beta version will be about six months after design/coding begins.
Therefore, I am looking to put together an awesome small group of South African designers/coders/SEO/marketing people to work on this project, to show what we at the tip of Africa can do and share in the rewards. It's not a salaried gig and there is no money until it works. But everyone who comes on board and proves themselves gets a share of the "company" and profits and will have a say how everything is done.
Basically, the following skills would be required (whether you have one or more doesn't matter);
HTML5 and CSS3
Web design (being able to create awesome graphics in HTML)
Business people/Marketers (to manage/promote/project manage the project)
I am looking for 4 or 5 people who have some experience and can show me that they know what they are doing. You don't need a degree or any qualification for that matter, but you need to be competent. You also need to be self-motivated, friendly, relaxed, honest and you must have a sense of humour and an imagination (if you really liked the original Star Wars movies and thought the last three sucked, that would be a major plus). In other words, I don't want any premadonnas even if they are brilliant at what they do.
So, if you want to build something worthwhile and are willing to work a few hours a week and on weekends until we start rolling, send me a private message and I'll give you more details about the idea so you can see if you are interested.
