Our Sales & Marketing team generate leads and make calls every day. Their success rate is not as good as it could be because they are not technical. We wish to employ a technical consultant who can look at the websites of the prospects, do a fast analysis and write a bullet list of solutions and provide a firm quote of hours required to carry out a redesign, development, testing and deployment. The task also involves recording the full details in a spreadsheet which in addition to your report and solution would include business name, postcode, contact name, website, email address and telephone numbers (all of which would normally be listed).
There is absolutely no calling or marketing. The job is purely a Technical Consultancy role together with report writing, to enable our sales team to take a consultative approach to gaining more clients.
Naturally, once we get to know you and have had an opportunity to assess the quality of your reports, we would hope to expand this to asking you to do some of the work as well. We have a one month trial in mind and of course, the beauty of this job is that you can work in your own normal time provided you return the relevant number of leads. We believe in an 8 hour day a good consultant should be able to return 60 leads with full details as outlined above.
We use Yell and other business directories to identify the leads. The TC will:
1. visit their websites and then assess the client's needs,
2. note down if the client has a website or not,
3. record the full details,
4. write up an overview of where the site is not achieving the desired results,
5. write up a bullet pointed solution.
6. accurately calculate the number of hours required to implement the suggested solution
We are primarily interested in selling Web design, development and hosting and whilst we implement SEO, we specifically do not want this to be our only offer to any new client.
In addition to consultancy, analysis, report writing and estimating skills, the ideal candidate will have significant knowledge and experience in the following areas:
Languages/Technologies : XHTML, HTML, XML, CSS
Backend Databases : MySQL
IDE : Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Illustrator, Photoshop
Web Server : Apache
Operating systems : Windows, Ubuntu, Linux
Open Source Tools : Wordpress, Drupal, JOOMLA, OsCommerce, PHPBB.
