We are looking for a clean, professional design for our new site.
The new site should have many of the same attributes as in the newsletter. A sample of the newsletter can be found at http://www.presentationxpert.com.
Navigation should be: Home, About Us, Subscribe, Past Issues, White Papers, News, and Contact Us.
We plan on adding a searchable directory, and may also add blogs, podcasts, webcasts, and video snippets.
Elements for the homepage might include Current Issue, Top 3 Articles, White Papers, Featured Articles, etc.
We will be adding advertising, sponsorships and links. At least three banners will appear on the homepage. One in the header, one in the footer, and one in the right column of the page. Banner sizes should be limited to the following.
Leaderboard 728 x 90
Wide skyscraper 160 x 600
Medium rectangle 300 x 250
Square button 120 x 120
Competitive sites include the following. We are doing the same thing, but want our site to be more user friendly and less commercial looking.
