Payment-Times.com was started by e-Complish (http://www.e-complish.com) and Regal Technologies (http://www.regaltek.com) to help businesses understand all things related to payments, payment processing, security, and system requirements.
e-Complish has very large customers (like utility companies) and Regal Technologies has small to medium size customers (like collection agencies, personal loan, auto finance). We would like a blog that is interesting to small or large companies.
Now we realize that this blog could come across as very boring if not presented correctly. Right now we have a very boring template approach and we need to jazz up the site. I am open minded to the design, but it should feel clean and easy to read with a professional flair.
We are putting up a pretty good some of money for this project. I guarantee that you will get much feedback from me throughout the project.
Please review our white papers for both e-Complish and Regal Technologies so you can get an idea of our style, but the colors of the blog site can be very different.
Business audience mainly. Business Owners, Executives, Accountants.
Any business that accepts credit cards, checks, electronic ACH/EFT transactions or mobile phone payments.
Any business that stores payment data for future use.
Please Note: Most people that would be interested in this blog will be over 35 years in age (think executive) and the reading area, font, and colors should be easy on the eyes.
The blog should be clean and easy to navigate. I know I want the font to be Calibri or something like it. The reading area should have an off-white background or something like that to keep it easy on the eyes.
DO NOT GET MARRIED TO THE LOGO OR LOGO COLOR. WE WILL PROBABLY BE CHANGING THAT AS WELL ONCE WE HAVE A GOOD DESIGN.
We use the following elements of WordPress (or want to in the future):
3. Recent Posts
4. Recent Comments
6. Subscribe using Feed Burner or RSS Feed
7. Recommended Service Providers
8. We would like to have a Blog Roll and an easy way to request being added to our Blog Roll
9. I have no problem with users starting up their own conversations and topics as well
We have made a commitment to not bombard the reader with too many ads. We also do not post but 2-3 times a week. With that said we want the blog to be professional but easy, with a nice tech/jazzy flair. I am not afraid of colors, but it needs to be easy on the eyes of a 35+ executive!!
Go get em!!
