How ScottHarrell started their web page design journey

Summary

I need an uncoded design for my website BeABountyHunter.com.

The website is used to distribute information about becoming a bounty hunter (also referred to as a bail enforcement agent or fugitive recovery agent) in the United States. Bounty Hunters are basically private citizens who find and capture fugitives for rewards. The site offers a way for visitors to ask questions via a contact form, read many articles, take a free introductory course and purchase a highly regarded online course, manual and/or ebook.

Emphasis should be on urging visitors to purchase the online course or sign up for the free introduction.

Feedback, positive direction and communication will not be a problem.

Company name

BeABountyHunter.com

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

I need an uncoded design for my website BeABountyHunter.com The website will change drastically so please use the following guidelines in your design:

Purpose
BeABountyHunter.com is used to distribute information about becoming a bounty hunter (also referred to as a bail enforcement agent and fugitive recovery agent) in the United States. Bounty Hunters are private citizens who find and capture fugitives for money. The site offers a way for visitors to ask questions via a contact form, read many articles, take a free introductory course and purchase a highly regarded online course, manual and/or ebook.

Emphasis should be on urging visitors to purchase the online course or sign up for the free introduction..

Design
I like simple and clean. Above all, the site must be easy to navigate.

Graphics in the header should be included to help promote an overall feel of chasing fugitives, putting people in handcuffs, investigation and *ACTION* within the site.

I dislike the cliché use of friendly faces, groups of people huddled together or around a desk in a meeting, on the phone, etc., etc. and no references to Duane “Dog” Chapman or the “Old West Cowboys” like Clint Eastwood please. ;-)

Bounty hunters are not police officers so please do not include pictures of uniformed police officers or cars with emergency lights and sirens. If we are going to use pictures of law enforcement people, I would prefer to see them looking more like plain clothes officers making an arrest or on surveillance.

I do like the "2.0 look;" a graphic header with menu boxes on the left and right side would be very appropriate.

I like the dark gray/ light gray and red color combination used in the "media mogul" theme template at http://demo.rockettheme.com/ and perhaps throw in some blue as in the "carbonite" theme "user 4 middle position" box.

While these are joomla templates- I am not looking for a joomla site.

Please include a sample “rollover” color for navigation buttons in the design mock up.

Do not worry about including copy/text in the design; “lorem ipsum” is fine. I will have the coder/developer insert newly written text later. Keep in mind that the home page will include a lot of copy regarding the course and its benefits; essentially the home page will be the main pitch.

Navigation

Top Navigation Bar
“Articles”
“Resources”
“Blog”
“About CPI”

Side Navigation Bar
“Online Course” which breaks out into a menu offering:
     “Apprehending Bail Fugitives: Become a Bounty Hunter”
     “The Professionals Guide to Skip Tracing”
     “Surveillance Strategies for Success”

“Testimonials”
“Questions?”
“Contact Us”

A distinct “Returning Students” button, banner or graphic.

Navigation at the bottom of the page:
“SiteMap”
“Affiliates”
“Legal”

A place should be included somewhere on the home page for a video feed from a youtube video and another box should be included for course updates.

Please include the Pursuit Magazine banner ad currently on the beabountyhunter.com website and incorporate, separately, an ad for our free “Introduction to Bail Recovery Course” in the design as well.

The following copyright notice should be at the bottom of the page: © 2008 CompassPoint Investigations, Inc.

MISC
I found a few websites that caught my eye for one reason or another so I will do my best to explain:

http://www.templatehelp.com/preset/…914VVq7ihg

I like this because it is about a single theme and they have built upon that theme. What I like most is the "action" I fee when looking at the design.
