This project will be in 2 parts. This is a long-term position!
**DO NOT REPLY WITH A GENERAL STATEMENT OR COPY&PASTE RESPONSE. READ THE REQUIREMENTS AND RESPOND OR YOU WILL BE DECLINED IMMEDIATELY!**
===== Part 1 =====
We need someone to review all of our products (approx. 600) and standardize the product page layout, check descriptions for non-standard characters, reformat the product descriptions with validation worthy HTML coding (neat, clean code that Google likes!), check description accuracy with manufacturer websites and/or product catalogs.
Unfortunately the person we had working for us has fallen ill and we need a new candidate. She had the following expertise:
"freelancer data entry professional with more than 8 years of experience and fully equipped home office (dual monitors, MS Office, Photoshop, OCR software, etc.) - among other things"
"quick learner and a tech savvy person - I have a BSc Degree in Software Engineering.
I use MS Office products on daily basis - and I also have experience with bulk uploading (from .csv files) and I know HTML and CSS very well.
I use PHP scripts to make data entry quicker (data scraping) whenever it's possible. However I never do the whole job automatically. I always check the finished product manually by record to record."
IF YOU HAVE THOSE QUALIFICATIONS, YOU MIGHT BE HIRED RIGHT AWAY!
===== Part 2 =====
*What I need or require:
We need to add hundreds of products (door hardware) onto our website. The product information (descriptions, details, images, line drawings, etc.) will be found in Manufacturer PDF files/websites and copied into the .csv files. The eCommerce portal to add the products through is called "Interspire Shopping Cart" or "BigCommerce."
The information required for the .csv files:
product options (multiple options + different options for each product)
*Other context/requirements that providers will need to know:
This is an ongoing project. If we find a company/person that is providing what we need, this is a long-term relationship with much more hours available. **VERY IMPORTANT** I DO NOT NEED A COMPANY TO JUST PROCESS FILES. I NEED SOMEONE WHO WILL TAKE THE TIME TO UNDERSTAND THE PRODUCTS AND KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG, MAKE SUGGESTIONS, MAKE OUR SITE PRODUCT/CONTENT BETTER!. We wish to keep our products standardized and free of errors.
*What will be provided:
We will provide the product lines to be added on
The PDF catalogs from the manufacturer (of each product line)
The specific options of each product line
*Specific expertise/background that I am seeking:
- Expert knowledge of MS Excel
- Expert knowledge of .CSV files
- Macros/Automated Actions STRONGLY SUGGESTED; i.e. Autohotkey (I will verify how you will be adding product)
- HTML/CSS programming to meet style and validation requirements A MUST!
- Detailed/detail oriented
- Proper grammar+spelling A MUST!
